Cards, Camera Strap, and Paper!

Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? I was crafting up a storm over here! I’ll be showing you the fun goodies I played with tomorrow. Today, I have a couple of small projects to show off and a really great sale to tell you about.

Ruffled Camera Strap

I made this ruffly camera strap slip cover for my Nikon D60.I’ve been obsessed with turquoise and green lately. This color combo is in my front room {hoping to reveal the transformation soon!!}, my kitchen, and my iphone cover. I don’t know what it is, but I’m totally digging teal + green!

{all you camera nerds will probably laugh that I shoot a D60…. but hey, it works! someday, i’ll convince davis to let me upgrade. for now, i’m working on upgrading my lenses. baby steps, right?}

And of course, polka dots!! I made this camera strap in January before I went to CHA because I had to have something cute around my neck.

Simple Thank You Card

 I sewed some fabric scraps into ruffles for a simple thank you note I sent to a publisher recently. {recognize that teal polka dot fabric ha!} I’ve said it before, but I really do hang onto almost all my fabric scraps. There are just so many ways to reuse those tidbits of fabric!

And once again, I used turquoise and green together. Is it just me or are they pretty rad together??

What crafts or projects did you get done this weekend?

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

      I agree, the shipping was pretty outrageous. Its only paper! I had no idea they were going to charge that :/
      thanks for stopping by, Rebecca!

    cute thank you card, which totally goes with your biz cards – good thinking :) You make great pictures with your D60! It’s not the gear, it’s the photog!
