Craft adventures update...


My blog has been in serious need of an update for months!!!! ;-)

I have so many crafty adventures from the last 5 months to share but here are just a few of my current projects. 

Currently stuck at week 9 but week 16 is complete and I have title cards made through week 23, ;-)

The first Project Life kits I received were the Studio Calico monthly subscription kits, starting in January 2013. I love all of the Studio Calico PL kits each month! 

June Roundabout Project Life kit...surrounded by the mess on my craft table. ;)

I also have collected 7 of the Becky Higgins Project Life core kits (Seafoam, Olive, Jade, Blush, Midnight, Cinnamon, & Honey) and one mini-kit (Seasons). I had hoped to collect some of the older core kits like Cobalt and Turquoise, but won't be able to get them before they sell out. :( Still, I will have the opportunity to get the Rain & Kraft core kits in July! YAY!!!!

I signed up for my very first online craft class that started June 1. More Happy Little Moments minibook with Maggie Holmes and Marcy Penner. It took me nearly a week to get started on my book but I think I might actually catch up this week and be able to join in the weekly challenges! I love how my book is starting out. I purchased the Marcy Penner class kit at love the stamp set!!

Some more pics of my book progress. The spine was cracking on the vintage 1961 Reader's Digest, so I used some duct tape to fix it (a surprise gift that matched perfectly!) I stamped the cover with two of the stamps from the class kit. LOVE it! Feels like the perfect spot for nature photos so my first was of the ladybug that came to visit our backyard in April! Unfortunately we don't see many of them and she was a pretty thing. 

Card making has always been my favorite craft, even though Project Life has taken over this year! LOL I always love my Studio Calico monthly card kits and June's Roundabout has the BEST stamp set EVER!!!!!! IMO ;-) Here is the first card I made with the kit. Love that the song is now stuck in my head as well. One of my favorites!

I need to start updating my blog regularly and hope that you will continue to join me in sharing my crafting adventures! You can definitely find me on Instagram (@kismet1990) and I always have more project pics there. :D

Happy Creating!
