Splatter Canvas By Amie!

Karla here today with a project that Amie, my 9 year old, came up with. She has become quite the little crafter! She attended a birthday party this weekend and wanted to add a homemade gift to the gift she purchased for her friend, and this is what she came up with!

She started off with a blank canvas and some Dylusions Ink Sprays. She created the splatter effect by taking the nozzle out of the bottle and tapping until she achieved the desired amount of splat!

How fun are these bright dots of colour?! She then Mod Podged on a diecut initial cut from some ombré cardstock and a cute little grasshopper cut from the Cricut Explore, since her friend loves grasshoppers.

She added some fun sequins to add some shine!

Here she is proudly displaying her project with her sister, Erica. I just love that they love being crafty! And her friend loved her gift!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a lovely week!

Scrappy Cat!

Hi there! Karla here today! Over the summer my girls have enjoyed coming in to the Scrapendipity store with me for make 'n takes and classes and are always spoiled by everyone there! We are so lucky to have this wonderful store and all the amazing people there.  There are so many crafters who just don't have this - it really makes me appreciate it.

Back when we used to get together at the owner, Selena's, house, everyone used to get some snuggles in with her cats. Of course, once the store opened she couldn't bring her cats, but she did get a really cute stuffed cat that the girls, especially, love! Well, this cute, fuzzy kitty needed a name, and the girls thought Scrappy Cat would suit her (or him), so we promised to make Selena a cute sign. Amie helped design it and the girls both picked out the colours to match the signature store colours. 

We used Cricut Design Space and several different Cricut and PPPR cut files for the frame, letters, cat and flowers. 

Even though this cute cat comes with a hat and scarf, you can choose to cut her without it! We used part of the scarf for the collar and duplicated the large flower, making it really tiny to fit on the collar. I used some Distress Ink around the edges before layering her together.

Amie saw this Hello Kitty ribbon and thought it would make the perfect collar for Scrappy Cat. She added a pink flower with some Stickles in the center - 'cause a cat's gotta have some bling!

Amie and Erica pose beside Scrappy Cat with the new sign decorating her bed.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you want to check out the Scrapendipity Online Store click here, and if you're anywhere near Calgary, Alberta, we'd all love it if you stopped by for a little shopping, a class, or just to say hi to Scrappy Cat! - 208 3400 14th St NW Northmount Plaza (facing Chelsea St) Calgary, Alberta.
