My Mom's my biggest fan when it comes to my scrapbooking and craft projects. Even if what I make is hideous, she loves it anyway. Even though she probably has a whole closet full of cards and things that I have made her throughout the years, I made her another birthday card. :)
It's hard being away from her on her special day, but hopefully soon she'll move close to us so we'll get to spend every birthday with her from now on.
Here's another birthday card that I created this week, just for fun! Paper is Crate Paper, letters are American Crafts and Pink Paislee, die cut is Heidi Swapp, flowers are Prima and Zva Creative, pearls are Zva.
The tree skirt! Sewing it was really easy, a little time consuming but not bad.
The stockings. They look a little droopy now, it happened after our stockings were full of presents and then emptied. I'll have to iron them before we put them up again next year. Making these was really fun! A little tip though, make sure to wear a face mask while you're sewing with burlap. The little particles from the burlap were flying around everywhere, my sinuses hurt for a couple of days after I was finished!
I decorated the lights on our tree with small squares of white tulle and bought the burlap ribbon at Hobby Lobby for $10. I cut banners out of vintage music paper and strung it on twine. I spent about $10 on new garlands for the living room and our new decor was complete! I already had ornaments for the tree and some of our relatives send us new ones every year. Plus Alex always makes a couple of new ones at school each year, they always end up becoming my favorites, of course!
