I got a new book on using my Cricut to make Doll house miniatures!!

  I got a great book on how to make miniatures on my Cricut!! 

It's called Making miniatures with a Cricut Maker byLisa Sones -Peck

She is on facebook too and Youtube  

I do not have a Cricut maker but I have an Explor Air Cricut and it works fine

except I can not cut the thicker chipboard as in the book but I have cut layers

 of poster board for the bookcase and used white Kraft cardstock for the frame and

 herb box next I will make the toy box!!

not a cricut project

My bicycle décor for summer 
I saw a wreath with a bike on it.
It was so cute but couldn't get the bike so
I found this one on Hobby Lobby.
I decided to make it a summer house decor peice.
It might go on a wreath if I find one that
I would like to make.
I made the fence from large tounge depesssors
added a foam core bas and flowers inthe basket
 and around the fence.

A shadow box using a calendar picture

I added some 3D butterflies and cut with my Cricut 
a piece of black card stock to help hide what was on the backside.

Not Cricut but a framed Stamping Project!!

This stamp set is by Stamp'n Up
called "Sheltering Tree."
I was inspired by someones post I saw
and I knew I just had to make one for myself.
I have always loved the scripture 
about God's timing. 
He has all control over time 
though He does not live in time
for God is eternal!!

"To everything there is a season. 
 A time for every purpose under heaven."
Ecc. 3:1
(click the pic to see upclose)
I have to replace the plexiglass 
it was old and scratched up.
I found an old frame that I had stashed away
 for years and knew one day I would use it.
It was brown faux wood.  Here the framed was already painted.
I  am showing you the picture that came 
in the frame.
  

I loved it but didn't go with my décor.
so I painted it black and I found just the RIGHT 
perfect matting for it at the Dollar Tree!
God is good! ❤
