Here are the Creativity Sisters' project picks of the week:
I know, I know. . . what am I thinking about Christmas already! But, if you make a few little things ahead each month, then you will be all ready for the holidays. These cute Christmas Jingle Booklets (and they do jingle) would be perfect for secret Santa, teacher, office exchange, stocking stuffers. Ok, ok -- if you really aren't into Christmas this early, just change out the design . . . make a flower or a star! >>Heidi
|I have a whole bin of Friendly Plastic at the Studio so when I found this Spirit of the Heart Necklace on FaveCrafts.com, I was so excited! I have always loved Friendly Plastic but I had kinda forgotten about it lately. But, I'm going to pull it out and get to creating!>>Candace|
|My pick from FaveCrafts.com is Finger Friends by Kathleen George for Styrofoam Brand Foam. Using Styrofoam balls, chenille stems and some cute embellishments and wiggle eyes, her kid-friendly critters come to life. With the kids looking for a fun and easy project to create this summer, this is the perfect pick! >>Tiff|

|This darling Scallop Heart Sachet is my pick from Sizzix this week. Created with the Sizzix Bigz Die - Heart with Scallop, this sachet would be easy to make by the dozen. Fill them with your favorite aromatic herb - my pick would definitely be lavender - and you have a really sweet gift. >>Tiff|

step-by-step instructions with illustrations. One can never
have too much bling!>>Heidi

make. From scrapbookers who want to go outside their comfort
of album pages and try home decor, this is a great place to
|My project pick this week comes from ohdeedoh.com. This Rooster Wall Art is fabric that has been cut into the rooster silhouette and "adhered" to the wall with liquid starch. That way, when you need to take it down, you just peel the fabric off, wash the walls and you're ready to make a change. Cool! >>Tiff|
