Ian, here from A Newbie Crafter, with a simple card for you featuring the Close to My Heart April Stamp of the Month. This card was another quick one that can be for anyone that's looking forward to the summer (it's right around the corner).
For this card, I took a A2 size and cut a piece of card stock at 4 1/8" by 5 1/4" from the Dotty for You pack. The next thing I did was cut a piece of Dotty for You card stock at 4"x 5 1/8". I added some Liquid Pearls to the front. The sun was stamped in Honey and Goldrush. The sentiment was stamped in Holiday Red. I think it turned out nice.
I think it turned out well! I hope you all enjoy it!

Hello everyone! This is Java Jen from JAVA JEN CREATIONS and I'm excited to share here today and over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY! It is a privilege, as always, Sheila! Thank you!
I made these magnetic learning boards for our two oldest grandsons for Christmas but have not had the chance to share them yet, so here they are:
I was so busy making these before Christmas that I didn't even take pictures as I was doing each step! Sorry! :-( At any rate, here is my "recipe":
Cricut Imagine Blast Off cartridge
Fabric fat quarters
Provo Craft Your Story laminating machine
Metal cookie sheet
I started by covering my cookie sheets with two different fat quarter pieces that I picked up at Joann's. Next, I printed and cut 2 of each letter, number and shape. I took one of each and glued them to my fabric-covered cookie sheet with Mod Podge, being sure to completely cover them. I took the next set and laminated them using my Your Story. After trimming them, I put a button magnet on the back of each and my magnet board is now complete! These are really quite easy to make! I'm hoping to do a more detailed post on my blog, at some point, to show all the fantastic details close-up.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Now wasn't that easy? Remember the base of the card is only 4 inches high but with the addition of the letters it goes to 5.5 inches so it will fit perfectly in an A2 envelope.
Well I hope you liked today's post.... I sure enjoyed making this card and spending time with you creating. It gets lonely in my craft room with out you! Thank you for your sweet sweet word of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me to share with you.
Have a blessed week!
