Crafty but not Scrappy!

Well I have a few projects to share but they are not scrapbook layouts.  These first two are for my friend's baby's room.  Little Maddalyn arrived last month so I figured I better get these finished up.

Cute Little Flower
The saying on here is from Kaisers Magic Happens line.  The big butterfly is also Kaiser.  The rub-ons are Fancy Pants, the flowers are Recollections.  The little dragon flies are beads that I bought at a scrapbooking rummage sale.

Printers Tray 

The papers used here were Kaiser Magic Happens and a 6x6 set of Basic Grey Euphoria.  Here are a few close ups.



Other Manufactures on here include: KI, Maya Road, My Minds Eye, American Crafts, Making Memories, Glitz, Kaiser, and Lawn Fawn.

I blogged not long ago about a co-worker who gave me all her old dress patterns.  Well she has a grandaugher and a grandson so I made her these to thank her.  They're 8x8 canvases purchased from Michaels.  This was my first time altering canvas and it was fun!!!

Here's the girl canvas:


And the boy canvas:

Both canvases are covered with dress patterns.  On the girl one, the crocheted lace is from JoAnn Fabrics, the paper is Crate, the flowers are recollections and of course I had to make a little flower out of the dress patterns, the dress form is a Lawn Fawn stamp, and the little spool is from a piece of Maya Road chip board. The patterned paper on the boy canvas is also by Crate.  Instead of the crocheted lace I added ribbon.  The little baseball chipboards are from an older Cosmo Cricket line called Lil' Man and the car and plane die cuts ar also from Crate.  I'm not sure where the baseball buttons came from.  I think I bought them from JoAnn Fabrics.

I gave these to my co-worker and thankfully she loved them.  But I've already started thinking what I should have done with them instead... I guess I need to get some more canvas'!!!

I'll have a layout to share next time!  And don't forget to check out August's challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous!  It's time to dig into your journaling blocks!!!
