Nina's Weekend Projects

Nina has been busy this weekend, creating like crazy for the special people in her life!  Her friend, Rebecca, has a birthday today, so Nina used some of her scrap goodies--a paper stack she found at Michael's for $1.47, a "relief" cut from Hello Kitty Greetings, and some Crayola Pip Squeaks glitter glue to create a fun card.  She also used some stretch cord and beads from her stash to make a bracelet.

She also absolutely adores her older brother, Ben.  She is constantly creating stuff to send to him.  Todays creation is a card that features Octopi from Create a Critter, her favorite cartridge.  She made the card from vellum and put it through the Sizzix Textured Impressions with the Cuttlebug Stars folder.  She added velvet ribbon and colored the stars in Ben's favorite color--blue.  The blue octopus is a magnet, and the purple octopus is adhered with an Action Wobble spring.  

Nina's last project is a set of candy gift holders she made for her nieces and nephews...Yummy!
