Last week I went over to my mom’s house to help her make some spring decorations for a women’s ministry meeting at her church. Since she finished her awesome craft room I’ve been over there a few times to do different crafts. We’ve been having fun!
I thought I would show what we made last week.
It kinda all started when I got a picture from my mom of this table tent card. She told me that she used a Cricut cartridge to make the cards. I kinda thought it was funny that the cartridge included something to keep the tent open.
I told her she could have just folded the cardstock in half! LOL!
She basically just wanted me to help her use her Cricut. I’ve shown her several times how to do it. I think she just uses it as an excuse to get me to come see her. (Hi Mommy!!) We used 2 different cartridges to cut out the letters for the cards, Paper Lace and Chalkboard Fonts. I personally liked the Chalkboard Fonts better because it had multiple fonts. It was also easier to use because Paper Lace is mostly graphics and to use the letters you have to flip through the entire instruction book to find each letter. “Can this TAKE any longer?” (said like Chandler from Friends)
She wanted to have a different phrase on each card. I think we ended up with six different phrases. I didn’t want them to be super matchy-matchy so I mixed up the fonts on a couple of them. They ended up really cute.
Chalkboard Condensed (Catch the glimpse of her craft room? I will be sharing more about that soon!)
This is an example of how I mixed the fonts. The “S” is in the Chalkboard Script and the rest is Chalkboard Condensed. Even the cute embellishments are from the Chalkboard cartridge!
This is the only one we used Paper Lace for. I got tired of looking for Every. Single. Letter. So one was enough!
She also made one of her mixed media canvases. I love these! I wish she would make them and sell them. She has given some away but people would definitely buy them! She starts with painting the canvas and putting paper on it. Then she starts to add embellishments. Hence the “mixed media”
I really love how she used the page from a hymnal. One of my favorite hymns! She told me she wanted to add these craft eggs that she painted and put stickers on it. I wasn’t sure if it would work but look! It did!
It was my idea to add more color, so she put the pink flowers and the white metal feather on. I think it turned out fantastic!
After all of
our her hard work, the finished products and the decorating was pretty awesome. It was simple but beautiful. My Mommy is so creative!!
We made the jars last year for her birthday but they worked perfectly for this event! She even had people ask how much she sells them for. Like I said, I’ve been telling her she can sell this stuff! I’m hoping she’ll do a craft booth this fall.
Have you made any spring decorations?
