Make & Takes

Remember waaay back when (oh, maybe 5 or 6 weeks ago) when Natasha & I went to make & takes with Wendy Vecchi of Ranger and Maya Road fame?

Here, finally, are the make & takes we made. Minus the card Natasha made for Fathers day, which included a stamped embossed card, distressing, etc.

Friends Card, 1st two images: Made with time cards, distressed. each of the letters were distressed before attaching (I choose to separate the words in the saying). The circles for the flowers were cut out for us, we layered as we chose, distressed, added findings and made the stems & leaves from simple scraps of green. Would be fun to make a whole booklet of time cards

Home is where the Heart is Sign: Natasha made this, and gave it to her friend who moved last week. It has their initials on it!

Necklaces: two pieces of PP, distressed as we wanted and placed back to back, add letter & word (Mine is Inspire, Natasha's Believe, and she made one for Missy, Create -of course!) Sandwich with slide glass, add the metal edge. The fun bit was using a clip for the top, and using the intended built in hook to add a charm.

Live the Life You've Imagined tag: Large tag was embossed,, then distressed to enhance the embossing. Flowers punched from Kraft color PP, distressed with Old paper and a light blue distress ink (my choices), Tim Holtz findings added to the middle. Chipboard flourish distressed and cut in half and added along with the saying with a cute paper clip.

Michelle: Momma to Natasha, Sarah Grace & Mira
