New website and Yahoo group

Hi there,
I have left the design team of Creatively-Green due some issues that I did not feel were ethical. So several of my former design team members and myself have created a blog to share green ideas as well as a Yahoo group to share files, templates, do swaps and blog hops. The blog is called Create It Green. And the Yahoo Group is also called Create It Green.

Please feel free to join us in this safe and friendly atmosphere.

Handmade felt flower

I recently discovered Heather Bailey's website and could not resist purchasing some of her felt, fabric and scrapbook supplies. The colors are so bright and vibrant.

I purchased her template on how to make the Felt flower and when I received it yesterday, I just had to make one.

I did add my own touch to it with some white tulle. The button is a vintage button that my mother had saved.

I think I will make one for each person I give a Christmas gift to. I can use this on a scrapbook page, as a hair clip or pin.

Soda can Background with Packing Peanut flower

This is a card that I made for Creatively-Green with a soda can and a packing peanut flower.
The soda can was cut up and embossed with the cuttlebug folder then colored with Generation Colorant. For future use I would add the colorant to the Generation Green paint because the colorant does come off on your hands when dry.

The packing peanuts are flatten on one side to make individual petals.

I really should have taken more time to punch more holes closer together so that the stitching looked a bit better.

Once again, I hope I have inspired you to look at things around you and use them in your crafts.
