In February I challenged myself to a little drawing challenge. I decided to draw one Star Trek themed drawing every day for that month. While I'm not posting ALL of them here (I drew 28 of them), I do want to share some of my favorites.
I don't have just one drawing style- I love portrait style sketching, cartooning,etc.

I actually made 2 cards for my blog hop project because I couldn't stop at just one. ;) I used both the Celebrate stamp set and the Hanging Stars stamp set on these. The large Celebrate stamp is perfect for sending out congrats cards!
For this card, I stamped the stars in a medium blue, and heat embossed the celebrate stamp in a light blue to match my card base. I layered it with some fun patterned scraps and stitched them together before adhering them to my card and adding gems.
While I think my first card has more of a celebration theme, I think my second card is good for say, celebrating a graduation, maybe?
I love everything galaxy/outer space so I wanted to combine the star stamps with some fun star patterned paper and a constellation die cut. I love that there are so many different sizes and styles of stars on the Hanging Stars stamp set.
Thanks for hopping with us today and I hope you have been inspired with all of the fabulous projects the Design Team has shared! Please head on over to the Paper Wings Productions blog and leave a comment for your chance to win!

I was provided a copy of the book Artful Handmade Wrap Bracelets by Di Kim from the publisher, and I was excited to read it and make some projects!
The bracelets in this book are just so gorgeous! While I plan on making more, For my first bracelet I decided to use the design for the "Ruby" bracelet.
I already had all of the supplies- thread, beads, thread glue (or clear nail polish) and a button, so it sounded easy enough. I followed the tutorial and my bracelet came out great.
What I'm loving about this book is that even though some of the braiding looks complex, there are some really good explanations at how to do certain braids, knots, etc.
The bracelets in the book use materials such as embroidery floss, wire, leather, chain, a few jewelry supplies and a variety of beads. Supplies that most crafters already have on hand.
If you love bracelets or the boho style, you'd love making these fun little bracelets! You can purchase the book on Amazon here.

Today I'm thrilled to be up on the Dollar Store Crafts blog sharing these Toy Animal Photo Holders!
I love projects that use plastic animals, so when Heather asked me to guest post on Dollar Store Crafts I hopped over to Dollar Tree to look around and I found these fun animals.
To see my full project and to get the tutorial, Check out Dollar Store Crafts!
Today I made this fun mixed media card for Paper Wings Productions What's Up Wednesday post. I don't do mixed media on my cards very often, they're normally just paper and stickers but it was fun to make a card like I'm playing in my art journal. ;)
I used papers, stamps, micron pens, crackle paste, gelatos and more! Hop on over to read more about my project!
