OTWC #56

Since this weeks marks the official beginning of summer, this Off The Wall Craftiness challenge will certainly get your inspiration flowing for those BBQ's/picnics and the 4th of July celebrations!  Take a look at the wonderful inspiration photo Kim has for you this week:


I just so happen to LOVE the 4th of July celebrations and what this day means to all of us=freedom.  So let's celebrate!  This year we will be celebrating most of our holiday weekend at a baseball tourney in KC for my son's team.  Go Bulldogs!


Do you see those fun new little embellishments?  They are handmade by me!  This week's sponsor, MoldMuse, was so very kind and sent molds to the DT to work with!  Thank you!  I chose to use polymer clay for my flower.  These are super easy to make!!



Our sponsor this week is another new sponsor.....MoldMuse!  Oh goodness, these molds are addictive!  I think the possibilities are endless!  My friend Jen even has made rings using these little mold treasures!  I found a video tutorial online and went to work making my own flowers.  Have you seen the cost of these pre-made ones in the scrapbook stores??  Unbelievable!!  Mine were made for literally pennies AND you can make them in any color!!  This week's winner will get a $15 gift certificate from MoldMuse.

Amy.......I just love your card today!!! Those little flowers are just perfect and the gingham is awesome. Funny you should mention the price of those molded flowers. I was just a scrapbook store and about died when I knew I could make them myself. I haven't jumped on that bandwagon, yet......but, I sure want to.
