Altered Pill Bottles and Pocket Tags for Crafty Meet Up Weekend

26 Aug

This past Thursday through Sunday , I hosted some of my friends that I met through YouTube!  Scrapdaworld/Tmika, Gemzisle/Sheryl, and Scrap Elegance/Katryce came to visit and we had a blast!  On Friday, Tmika, Sheryl, and I went to the Scrapbook Expo is Schaumberg, IL .  We met up with three other YouTubers, two Elizabeths and an Amy!  We had a blast with them!

Tmika, Sheryl, and I decided to make things for each other as we have in the past.  Katryce decided to come later, but I made one for her also.  We did tags instead of cards and altered pill bottles!   I let the ladies fill their bottles up with resin pieces so they were happy.  Here are some pictures…

Monthly Friendship Swap – February

11 Mar
February Friendship Swap Items -  Round Boxes, Dress Form Screen Card, Round 3 x 3 note cards, box envelopes, and bag of goodies.

Some of my friends Tmika, Sheryl, Shanta, and I decided to do a monthly swap.  This will help one keep in the crafting world as she has very little time, and it will help the rest of us use some of our products and maybe even try something different.  Each month one of us gets to choose what the swap will be.  The idea is to keep it small so that it won’t cost a lot to mail.

February was Tmika’s month to choose.  We were to make a card that the others can use, five 3 x 3 cards and envelopes, and include goodies worth $2.  The style was to be shabby chic.  So I made round cards, something I have not done before.

Each card has a different little sentiment on it…thanks, thank you, sorry, hugs, and love you.  Here is a close up view of one…

The dress form screen card is one that I made for a design team project for The Cutting Cafe a few weeks ago…

You can find more detail on it from my February 21st post.  Then, I made a round box to hold the cards.  I used the Round Box Template, also from The Cutting Cafe.

Once I receive my swaps from the ladies, I will share those.  In the meantime, here is a video to give you more details on what I made.  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you have not already done so.
