Well…my sister had a beautiful wedding, my boys both finished,and passed, school, and I’ve spent the last week cleaning, organizing, and getting my house whipped into shape…so it is definitely time to create and enjoy the summer for the rest of the week!
I belong to a lovely online swapping group called Project Life Card Swaps. Every month they host a slew of different swaps you can participate in. I don’t swap every month, but when I see one that gets my creative juices flowing, I will join in. And it is nice when creating a pocket page or card to have a little handmade card all ready to go. I’ve even done a planner clip swap over there which was awesome!
This month one of the swaps was to create Alice In Wonderland card candy! My absolute favorite Disney movie of all time is Alice In Wonderland (with Meet The Robinson’s being a very close #2). So when I saw this swap, I knew I wanted to make some card candy…which, are cute little homemade embellishments that you can add to cards or PL cards or scrapbook pages (search them on Pinterest- so many cute ideas there!). I went shopping on Etsy for some cute little stickers, metal Cheshire cats (EEEEKKK!), and some printable tea pots..grabbed some sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps, some twine, and Heidi Swapp Color Shine and off I went…
I had so, so much fun putting these together and I hope you like them too!
After they were all packaged up and ready to ship, I took the extra set I had made myself and created a card-
So cute! Even if my Color Shine got away from me just a touch…………the inside sentiment will say “Your Tea-rrific!”
Have A Lovely Day!
