Below is the last of my October Afternoon projects. It was a true joy and pleasure to be their guest designer this month. Thanks, October Afternoon! =)
You probably recognize these pictures from a blog post a couple of months ago. Well, Miss "E" is going to be a big sister later this year! Congrats Cris & Bryce! I can't wait to meet your new little bundle! =)
It has been an insanely busy, crazy, chaotic week and weekend! Scrap. Photo. Scrap. Computer work. Sleep - a little. Edit. Drive 3 hours to parents'. Niece's birthday party. Go see Grandma. Mother's Day lunch with parents. Go see Grandma. Drive 3 hours home. Goddaughter's birthday party. Spend time with my wonderful friend. Go home... Breathe.
I'm sure that you've already read that we've had a little snag in the launch of Midnight Rooster's website. The website looks wonderful and works great - until you try to purchase a kit. The payment button doesn't seem to want to work. Why is it that a seemingly small thing can cause such a big problem? The boys are working on it, we promise. They aren't sure why it isn't working properly, because everything worked fine when they tested it out. It's as frustrating for them as it is for us, I'm sure. Makes me glad that I'm not the computer tech. ;)
On a more pleasant note, here is my third project for October Afternoon. If you follow my blog, you probably recognize the photos and that there is a bit of a glare on them in this picture.
And here are 2 of my projects for Midnight Rooster using the May kits.
I knew that I wanted to do some sort of altered project, but I wasn't sure exactly what. Well, it was Earth Day, so it only seemed appropriate that I repurpose a coffee sleeve! I love altered projects, and this one was pretty easy and really fun to do.
Sand any design and/or writing from a coffee sleeve.
Punch a 2" scallop circle from cardstock.
Die cut letters and a 1.5" circle from patterned paper.
Cut a strip from the middle of the circle wide enough to fit the letters.
Ink the edges of all the pieces, including the coffee sleeve.
Adhere together. (see picture for layout)
Glossy accent the letters and let dry.
Voilà! Now you have your very own custom coffee sleeve! =)
For those of you who may not already know, I was asked to be October Afternoon's guest designer for the month of May! OA is one of my favorite companies, so I was absolutely tickled pink when I received the e-mail from their design team coordinator. They will be revealing each of my 5 projects throughout the month, so check back to see all of my little creations! =)
Here's the first. Isn't Wyatt absolutely adorable?
