Blue Birds of Happiness

These felt blue birds are ready to bring you happiness and fun. Different shades of blue and dark purple; die cut birds with wings are pre-cut for easy DIY crafting. I kept smiling to myself as I was cutting out these happy little birds thinking of all the fun, cute things one can make from them!

They would make great embellishments for handmade cards. I think they would also make a cute brooch or pin. Since they have a simple shape they would also make great cupcake toppers. Simply use two shapes and glue to long toothpick or "Popsicle stick".

What ideas do you have for these fun "Tweet Bird" shapes? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Here are some of the ideas I have for these Blue Bird Shapes:

pin or brooch
friendship cards
birthday party favors

From My Kitchen

These adorable "From The Kitchen" tags are handmade by me...especially for you!
I scallop die cut each tag and then stamped with olive green. The distressed edges gives the tags a vintage look. They each have black string looped and ready to display on you favorite homemade goodies.

I think these tags will have many uses, but some of the more popular ones may be:

Recipe Cards; is someone you know asking for a recipe? Why not give them the "dish" and attach one of these cute tags with the recipe.

There is a big revival of home canning from your vegetable garden. Imagine how nice it would be to receive some homemade goodies with this tag around the Canning Jar?

Flavored olive oils and extracts make nice housewarming gifts for newlyweds or a bridal shower. Why not make your own Homemade Vanilla Extract, and attach this vintage inspired tag to the bottle?

Please feel free to share some of your ideas for these great tags. I would love to share them with my readers.

Patriotic Felt Star Shapes

There is something about summertime that speaks of a patriotic spirit. Maybe it's because of July 4Th being right in the middle of summer, but it is also surrounded by Memorial Day, Flag Day, Veteran's Day and more.

I am a big fan of red white and blue so making these cut out star shapes was super fun and these felt star shapes make your patriotic crafting easy. Red white and blue die cut stars in 3 different sizes makes layering a breeze.
Also great for picnics, family reunions, summer time fun. Show your love of country with fun felt shapes.
Use for party invitations, scrapbooks, embellishments, party favors, decorations and more!

What will you make with these star shapes? I bet you have more ideas to add to the list!

Rose Buds Gift Card Holder

I hand cut and folded this Rose Buds Gift card holder. It speaks of spring time birthday's, garden parties, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and graduation.

The rose buds background print is folded out of heavy weight double sided card stock, and is made to enclose a "gift card" in the pocket on the front of the card. It's soft beige and peach/pink tones make an elegant card.

It also has a place for you to write your greetings and wishes on the inside of the card on creamy beige polka dot print and tuck the "gift card" into the outer pocket.
Outside fold comes with mini stick on pearls and sheer ribbon.

I love having this type of card on hand for the unplanned needed gift. Just purchase the recipients favorite "gift card" and slip in the enclosed pocket and you have a nice card and gift that Wows!

Grandma's Apron

I wanted to created a "modern" item to remember fond past moments; so I created my apron magnets. They signify a simpler time when mom's and grandma's started their days with a fresh new apron.
Do you remember your mom or grandmother wearing an apron? It has a homey feel and a comfort knowing you could bury your "troubles" in her apron.

Not only for Mother's Day, but for year round, why not place an apron magnet on your refrigerator to remind you of love and security and comfort. Or give as a gift to say; "Thanks Mom"!
