Love is all you need

or is it!? After this project I am wondering :) The glass on the front broke while I was soldering and the words on the back vanished. I used printed fabric, rubons, Dymo label maker, and a charm. Thanks for stopping by!

Handmade Embossing Plate

The 3rd challenge at A Charming Place this month is to make your own embossing plate. I glued chipboard flowers to a sheet of cardstock. I used the embossing plate on the background and the envelope. I inked the flower and added a button from Epiphany Crafts Button Studio. Thanks for stopping by!

More Solder!

I used Autumn Leaves paper with Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and soldered around it. If I can smooth them out a little more they will be really cute!

I have always wanted to try it so when I asked what all I needed not only did the gals at acharmingplace tell me what I needed Christine sent me everything I needed to try it. Thanks again!! Here are my first two pieces..messy and the poor solder iron....what in the world did I do to kill the tip??? Sorry I didn’t take better care of my wonderful gift Christine, guess I will be looking for more pointers. I was able to make a couple more pieces tonight that I will photograph tomorrow and share. I have a few other pieces in the works but they will have to wait until I get a new tip, this one is too rough to smooth the solder now . The Iron only hit the floor twice, Joseph said he was going to make me a net, he is such a good little helper. On the square piece I cut up a snowflake charm to sandwich between the glass. The round one is an epoxy bubble from Epiphany Crafts I thought the heat might melt it but it didn’t!!. Thanks for stopping by!

So this is snow!

I love this photo of him looking down at the snow sticking to his shoes wondering what in the world is this stuff! I used papers by BoBunny, charms from acharmingplace, and made the cute buttons with Epiphany Crafts Button Studio. Thanks for stopping by!
