I had a little bottle filled with sweeties given to me at a craft retreat – the sweeties were soon gone but I could not bring myself to throw away the bottle, so I tucked it away in a corner………… knowing that one day I would find a use for it.
Each month in addition to the great 3D projects that Craft Project Central has for you, they also host a monthly card challenge – Creating Pretty Cards!!
To help you recreate the sketch each month, they also provide a free Sketch Mini Tutorial! This mini tutorial has information about how the inspiration card (using the sketch) was created, supplies used, and basic measurements!!
WOW I am thrilled to share with you that I have been invited, once again, to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central and I get to share it with you today!

When I saw the bundle for the first time it literally screamed GOLD heat embossing to me so that was my starting point, I chose very traditional colors of Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla to compliment the gold.

I love to make 3D items, especially ones to put little gifts into. I was in one of the large local stores a couple of months ago and came across the handbag/purse size EOS Hand lotions. It is such a lovely shape and perfect for a gift.
