Hello crafty friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I know we did! We had some baseball games and a fun picnic!
Well today is Wednesday and that means it's 3~D Wednesday over at My Creative Time! Emma and the design team are hoping to inspire you all with anything BUT a card! I have to say again, I LOVE that Emma started this segment! I get so excited to see every one's creations!
Today I wanted to show you what we are starting to teach our son! NO ~ not the vodka bottle but how to not only recycle but save for special things! We thought it would be a great learning tool for him to save up any spare change we had, so we could take him on a fun vacation next year! Now obviously we are just going to do this by saving change, even though if I admitted how many red Solo cups we have filled with change in my house , you might just think we are hoarders! LOL!
I really wanted to create a scene for us to focus on our goal! The "Stitched Journal Die" was the PERFECT size for my scene and bottle. I am in LOVE with this die and could use it every single day! I know it isn't fully on the jar but I have a reason for that! I plan on taking this off the bottle after we return from our vacation (next year) and put it in with all the photos I plan on taking! I LOVE how the "Stitched Umbrella Die" could be used for a beach umbrella! The "Stitched Oval Die" I tried to make it a surf board ~ not to bad right? Then for my beach ball, this was an after thought, I decided to use the little circle die from "Build A Banner Kit". I could have played with it a little more but I hope you all get the idea! My sun is from the stamp set "Fun Pockets". I just paper pieced it twice to get a little more rays. My sand is sand paper I borrowed from my husbands stash! I will list the rest of my materials below the picture!
