I just love working with the great assortment of embellishments Creative Charms has to offer. At first glance, you might think it's all about beautiful flowers and bling.... but every time I look through the catalog, I seem to find something else just screaming for me to try it on a project! These adorable fuzzy teddy bears were just perfect for a recent project. I created a "Dad's Brag Book" for my cousin to celebrate the birth of his son Wesley William Wood. I wanted it to be boyish, yet not done in the traditional baby blue color palette. I decided on manly plaids, browns, camo trims, leather.... but added the fuzzy whimsical touch of Creative Charms bears. Nick has been having fun filling it with photos of the "little man" and sharing it at his workplace.
While I was in the mood for masculine projects... I found the perfect project for some of Creative Charm's adorable camouflage ducks! This envelope book was my husband's Father's Day "card" - each pocket held a verse/poem about Fatherhood, and personal messages from our boys. These little camo ducks blended perfectly with the brown cardstock, plaid paper, burlap and bamboo clips to create a gift my husband truly treasures.
Until next time...... look deeper into the world of Creative Charms and share with us what YOU create! Cindi Bisson
