Guest Designer Cara from A Lady and Her Crafts

Hello everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I am so excited to be introducing this week's Guest Designer, Cara, from "A Lady and Her Crafts".  I actually first found her on YouTube.  She makes amazing videos and I have followed her on YouTube for a long time.  You should really check her out on YouTube by clicking here.  Her sparkling personality is paralleled with her amazing crafting ability.  So without further ado...

In Cara's own words:
Here in Alaska the snow is finally starting to melt…things are starting to perk up and get green. I think that's why I was drawn to the beautiful green seam binding…I am so ready for SPRING! So the first thing I did was to alter the adorable muslin bags I received….here they are:

Here's a close up:

The supplies for this project were: seam binding and muslin bag (3 Girl Jam) sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger), Glossy Accents (Ranger), Love Deeply sentiment stamp from Group Hugs stamp set (Paper Smooches), Simplicity sentiment stamp from New Day stamp set (Precious Remembrance Shop), both dress stamps by Inkadinkado and Moon Shadow Mist (Lindy's Stamp Gang). Whew!

Next I made some thank you tags which included my first attempt at a shaker box. 

Here they are:

And here's another close-up.

The supplies for this project were: green seam binding (love, love, love it) from (3 Girl Jam), Dear Lizzy Neapolitan pattern paper (American Crafts), sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), Love Quotes & Filigree stamp sets (Mama Elephant), Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger), Foam Tape (Scotch), Wood Veneer Stars (Studio Calico) and various Copic markers. 

I also posted a video to my YT channel (AKCaraboo) which shows not only these projects but the other goodies I received from 3 Girl Jam.

  1. Cara those muslin bags are just amazing! I have both of those dress stamps and just LOVE them. Your tags are super darling too…I've yet to master a "shaker" project of any sort and I've tried several times. You've inspired me to get on it and make it work. Thanks for sharing these amazing projects with us this weekend.
