W2CB #67: 50 Years Ago Today

I was a little girl, and my mother settled me into my rocking chair in front of the TV.  She told me to pay close attention, and someday I would tell my children and grandchildren that I watched the first lunar landing live.  Mom was ahead of her time, and recognized the importance of making memories.  I've tried to do that with my son, but he is young enough that the jury is still out!  I have always told him that I love him to the moon and back.

Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By as we honor the mission's lunar plaque inscription.
We came in peace for all mankind.
The challenge is open through July 24.  Peace.

Another Christmas in July...

The Male Room has a Christmas in July challenge:
The one on the right was my first attempt.  Meh.  The solid deer didn't do it for me, too plain.  I die cut the one on the right from white paper embossed with silver, and was much happier.  Since the red and white paper was so busy, I skipped the sentiment and added a silver strip of washi tape and a white grosgrain ribbon.  I love it when I can incorporate ribbon into a masculine card!!!!

I am in love with the colors this week at The Color Throwdown:
Here is my version using paper from The Paper Studio's Mint to be Fab:
The sketch is My Favorite Things #408.  Be sure to check out of Out of this World challenge at Words 2 Craft By!

Christmas in July

Christmas Crafts All Year Round has an anything but a card challenge.  I already posted my hand sanitizer packaging.  Here is my lip balm packaging:
I used the largest dies from a few Spellbinder nesties, and layered the SU patterned paper cut with the next smallest die.  I scored off a one inch section to create the base, topped with old Sizzix holly leaf die cuts, tiny bells, and silver beads.  I closed the top with adhesive, but I think I will make some with a tied ribbon.

W2CB #67: The Men on the Moon

Hi, everyone! It's the second Wednesday of a new month.... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

July 20th will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. In honor of Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Michael Collins, and the men and women of NASA, we remember the mission's lunar plaque inscription.
We came in peace for all mankind.
Here is my interpretation:
We hope you'll join us by linking up an Apollo 11-inspired card/project. Our challenge winner will receive a $10 e-certificate to the merchant of her/his choice. See you in the W2CB Gallery!

Christmas in July

Christmas Crafts All Year Round has a challenge to make something OTHER than a card.  I like to give a something to work friends that won't break the bank.  Since I work in an area without running water, we use a lot of hand sanitizer.

I started with a tutorial from Stampin' Scraper, and adjusted it to suit my Bath & Body Works bottle.

I cut a strip of paper 2" x 10.5", then scored at .5", 1.5", 3.75", 4.75", 7.5", and 8.5".  I cut a 1" x 1.25" oval between the .5" and the 1.5" score lines.  Since I used my trusty Score Pal, I am also entering this in their more than one score challenge.  The snowman is cut from Tim Holtz dies.  I think I found my work Christmas gifts for this year!!
