Father’s Day Wishes for All
Father's Day is just around the corner, and our Design Team has been creating the best ideas for the occasion! See how Debi created this sweet star studded card for her hubby!
Well here it is again another great celebration and I have so much to share. I am delighted to make a card for my Husband. He is a great father and husband. He is my crafting cheerleader as well. My project this week is two-fold, I made not only a card using the wonderful Pages of Honor a collection from Glimpses by SignifyPink. Please check out their great collection of cardstock. They are selling out their current stock. I also had my crafting class project as well! This week was a work out for my Craftwell eCraft!

I really believe that this is pretty self easy and yields a very nice and cute card. I love the Popup effect. I used a pressure setting of 6 and a new blade. I also set to no tabs. I used my MTC software for this project. I normally use the Ecraft Pro Software however. I cut the main insert and then placed it in the Xyron Stamp Creator, I put a piece of waxed paper behind the lettering so it would not adhere to the base card. I next placed the popup on the base card. Quick and easy which is what I had to have since I worked all last week on my Relay for Life event. I was a worker for two teen girl co-captains. (you know I did all of the prep for the food and they served and helped) I was totally crazy, I didn’t realize that I would be so busy. The day before the event, I got up at about 6 am Friday morning to gather my stuff for my Senior Craft Class. I knew I would be off to the relay event for setup right after the class. I then worked Relay for Life till 10:00 am the next day. Talk about tired, I used my experience to relate to what Cancer patients experience in their fight for life. No I am blessed and this no way is any way similar but very symbolic of their journey. Staying all night reminds us of the awful journey when it seems so hopeless. They are tired and yet they still fight on, then morning comes. Hopefully bring a cure or remission or release. I brought this to my mind every time I wanted to give up and go home.
I also learned never give a class on the day before you stay up all night long to work a Relay. I wanted so much to share with you about my new love, my Senior Center Class. I volunteer at the Center to bring fun and hopefully laughter to the great people who make up the Center. I have so much fun.
The Craftwell eCraft has really proved itself as a great tool for my class. I was able to cut out 25 lacy boxes (SVGcuts) for our class. I had the battery tea lights for all. I put all of my paper in the automatic feeder and set it up and it worked away to make the cuts I needed. If not for this I would have had to cancel the class that morning. This would have disappointed so many. The ladies and men love paper crafting and the eCraft as it is so easy for them to use. Most are new to any crafting and are just staring as it works away. I was so please as they glued away and gave most away to a local nursing home. I am hoping to have a larger project this coming week.
Needless to say I was exhausted after all of this, but it was so worth it.
I just want to ask all you, if you have the opportunity take the time to share your craft, just DO IT. Many people are not aware or not fortunate to have the resources to have items we have. It is so much fun to share. Some of them have bought cardstock and brought it to share as well. They have already decided to look into Holiday items to be given as gifts to local nursing homes and also for some of the kids in the area. Thank you so much to Craftwell and also to SVGcuts for helping me to give in my community! You would not believe how happy and excited making these lanterns made my participants!
Happy Father’s Day!
Thank you Debi! We are sure, your husband will love his sweet card!
