June Bulletin Board

This year we thought to change June up a little.  Normally we would do something for Father’s day.  We went another direction,

We started with a wire wreath.  Wrapped in burlap.

Next we added some flowers and some greenery.

We wanted to put some fun ducks at the bottom.

Add some cute lettering for the month of June

Put them up with the actual calendar.

May Bulletin Board

May always has Mother’s Day.  So how to decorate the bulletin Board for May?  Something with mothers in it.

Took a couple of wooden picture frames and painted them white.  Then put some floral foam around the edges so I could put some pretty flowers around the frames.

I found some pictures of mothers with their children to put in the frames.

Made new letters to match the colors.

This is how it looks on the actual bulletin board,

Thanks for stopping by!!

April Bulletin Board – Easter/Christ

For the April bulletin board we went with the Easter/Christ theme.

From our decorations we came up with these colors for the title.

We started with some 5×7 canvases and painted them with a festive pink background.  We used a matching paper for the background and put lettering to convey our message.

 

For the Risen, we used popups to make it stand away from the canvas.

Here it is, all together.  We think it turned out cute!!!

Thanks for reading our blog!

Boutique is open tomorrow and Saturday. Address is 2663 State Hwy A, Auxvasse, MO. Short distance off of I-70 at exit 155.

Scrapbooking Night

We haven’t been scrapbooking since our move to Missouri.  The time was an issue.  Also with a lot of things still packed, we couldn’t find what we needed to add to albums.

This last week we found a box from Lu’s mom, Lucy.  It had some pictures she was planning to scrapbook,  A few of those pictures were from our wedding so many years ago.  We checked them against what we already had in the album and found a bunch we wanted to add.

We scheduled a night to add them to the Wedding Album.  We invited some people in our church to come scrapbook with us.  No one came that night.  Whether it was that we are too far away from them or the new snow that fell that day, we don’t know.  We will schedule another one for February, maybe on a Friday night instead of a Saturday night.  It is always fun to scrapbook with others.

Here is the cover of our wedding album,

In some cases we could just redo the page and add the pictures.  In other cases we had to add new pages to the book.  Here is one of the pages we added.

We love the way that you can add pages to a Creative Memories Album.  Just make the page and rethread the binding.  We put page protectors on the new pages.  It is so nice to get something taken care of.

It was good as well to revisit the past of happy times together.  Some things like cutting the cake we don’t remember very well.  We have pictures in the scrapbook, so it must have happened.

A Simple Card

Sometime you just need a card to show someone you care.

So open up the Cricut app and away we go.  Find a card you like, find some paper.  Get a mat, put the paper on and load into the cricut.  Make sure you put the scoring tool in, and change it to a pen when you need to.

I wanted to say that I am not sure what direction life is taking us right now.  We are together in this journey.

Plenty of room to write something inside.

I did let the Cricut write it in here.  Just covered it up so you could see the space.

90th Birthday Card for a Co-worker’s Neighbor

This is Steve.  I like to make cards too.

Last year, I reached out to co-workers at work to send my father a birthday card.  I waited too long to ask.  It was his 99th birthday.  He received about 35 birthday cards.  Never in his life had he received so many birthday cards.

Last month a co-worker reached out for a neighbor who is turning 90 this upcoming weekend.  I wanted to try something new so I found a new design on the internet.

This is a simple cart.  It is a bi-fold card.  with a couple of layers on the front.

Laying flat it looks like this.

Here you see how the front is angled.

 

 

Thanks for coming to read our blog!!!
