The One with Hambly March Projects

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

A few days late but worth the wait! Here are my three monthly projects for Hambly for March: the blog project, the sketch, and the "extra":

Blog project - the post with step-by-steps can be found HERE.

Journaling says: Every Thursday Mission Street is closed to traffic so dozens of vendors can set up and sell all kinds of things from fruits & veggies, nuts, bread, and cookies to full on meals. It's a fun tradition! I always get BBQ.

How to: There's a step-by-step on the Hambly blog so if you're really curious, check it out HERE.

Supplies: Cardstock, flower brads, paper leaves, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, patterned transparencies, patterned vellum, stickers (bird, butterfly, label, leaf), washi tape: Hambly; Letter stickers: Prima; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
March sketch:
And my card based on the sketch:

How to: Make a square card base from a cream ledger transparency. Cut a notched banner from kraft/white chevron paper and adhere it across the center. Hand cut "thanks" letters from patterned paper and adhere them (some with foam tabs) on the card. Adhere pieces of washi tape with notched ends to the top left and bottom right corners. Apply three bits of aqua spray mist rub ons around the washi tape. Trim the edges from a brown label sticker and place them over the bottom ends of the washi tape. Add a pink bird sticker to the "t" in the sentiment.

Supplies: Patterned transparency, patterned paper, washi tape, stickers (bird, label), spray mist rub ons: Hambly; Adhesive: American Crafts

Extra project:

Journaling says: Fox traveled more in his first year of life than I could believe possible! Luckily the loud noises and lull of airplanes and car rides puts him to sleep. Hopefully we can continue visiting family often so they can watch him grow up. We love traveling!

How to: This layout is definitely Kelly Purkey inspired! Die cut the United States from cardstock then trace and cut out each state from a different patterned paper or patterned transparency (yes, it takes a long time, so settle down in front of a movie or somethin'). Piece the states onto white cardstock, then cut the entire thing out so you can move it around in one movement instead of 50. Adhere the USA across a two page aqua cardstock layout spread. Adhere mini photos around the states then connect the pictures to the places you've been using baker's twine. Place a kraft star sticker on the ends of the baker's twine. Type the places you've been using a typewriter onto ledger papers, cut them out into banners, then adhere them over the photos. Make a title and write journaling on the right side. Punch train borders on three edges then straight and zigzag stitch under them. Drop white and brown mist beside the punched borders.

Supplies: Patterned papers, patterned transparencies: Hambly; Cardstock, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Letter stickers: Basic Grey (cream), My Mind's Eye (black round), Studio Calico (gray numbers, yellow); Baker's twine: The Twinery; Spray mist, kraft star stickers: Studio Calico;Typewriter: Smith Corona;  Train border punch: Martha Stewart Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine (Cameo), states die (Silhouette): QuicKutz

There you have it!
