'It's a Wide World' Layout

This is a recent layout I did, and is currently my favorite! I used the new Close to my Heart Olivia paper pack and did the Love Potion pattern from the new Magic template book! This paper was just perfect for these fall pictures of my daughter. I just love the Twitterpated Stickease as well, they are just adorable and I think they go great on this layout!

What a Hoot!

These little owls were so fun to make and aren't they just so darn cute?
The first one I made was the one with the gold bow, I used a glue gun to attach the eye circles and the beak and used brads for the eyes. With the rest I decided I would hand stitch on everything and use buttons for eyes, therefore making them more childproof. In the smaller ones I included a rattle inside! An adorable toy/decor piece for any baby or kid!
I plan on making a large one too in the near future! So stay posted!

Want to make your own? I got the idea off of YouTube under: stuffed owl-sewing tutorial.

Thanks for looking! Hope you have a fabulous day!

Woodland Canvas'

Hello Everyone! Sorry for not posting the last couple of weeks, I was away visiting my sister and my brand new nephew!! The project today is a set of three canvas' that I made for his room. My sister had a woodland creature crib set so I thought these cute critters would fit right in! I also made him a couple of plush owls (to be posted soon!).
These were super easy to make. Just paint the background color, cut out random patterned paper ( I made a pattern first to trace around), ink the edges and mod podge it on! These particular canvas' were stapled on the sides so I covered the entire edge with ribbon, a different color and pattern for each canvas (not shown, sorry)! Anyways a great project and a cute addition to a little boys nursery! Thanks for looking!

P.S. Sorry for the lighting, the true colors are quite different...
