Punch Art

I did a bit of creating today.
I was able to colour an image.
I am in a stamped image swap, this is one of the images that didn't make the cut. See the smudge from the stamp? It wasn't up to par so I kept this one.
I made some more charms.
I love those butterfly beads. With the white pearls on top of them, they look like angels. I ran out of some materials, or I could have gone on all day :) I was playing around with my punches.
Most of the ones I saw online didn't give the instructions, so I just figured it out on my own. I am sure I didn't have the same punches as they used, so I just went with it. I used google eyes on most of these characters. I need a new type of glue for these. I used liquid glue and you can see the shine on where it touched.
Not sure if I like these, but I did use up a wee bit of my scraps.....and I mean a wee bit, teehee. Now that I know how to make these, I can add my own twist to them.

Onto My Day:
I slept in, majorly slept in. Hubby snored so loud that when Ashley came home last night, her boyfriend Tyler was at the back door and heard hubby snoring. Tyler said "Your Poor Mom", lol. Little did they know I was on the couch ;) When hubby got up this morning I jumped into our bed and went back to sleep. At 1:00 (yes you read that correctly) Heather came in to check on me, lol.

This is about it. Hubby and I stayed in and watched movies most of the day. So I just brought up my supplies to the living room and worked away on these.

How was your weekend? Did you get to create today?



  1. Looks like you've been pretty crafty, girly! Love all your stuff...and I'm especially lovin' your little bead thingies!

    Oooh, that pretty. Can hardly even notice the smudge (wouldn't have if you hadn't pointed it out).

    I sleep with a loud snorer, too. My heart goes out to you.

  2. Love the butterfly and its colors. the jewelery is really pretty too. Love the punch images, super cute!

  3. Super crafty today. Did pretty good for such a late start.I adore the butterfly you colored. There ya go so hard on your beautiful work.
    Oh the charms are TDF! stunning with the butterflies and pearls.
    Wow you made all those with just pearls? That is something! Would be adorable on treat bags.
    Poor you I have a snore buddy too. Between him and the dog they could take the roof off in unison! LOL
    I am off to do some sewing.

  4. Your colored butterfly is gorgeous, and so are the charms you made! (love those butterfly beads, and they do look like angels) And your cute little punched critters are adorable! :o)

  12. Your little punch characters are so cute! I wish I could have slept that long yesterday, I did not want to get out of bed at all :0)

  13. I took a lovely long nap yesterday, from 2pm - 5 pm... Ethan had an accident on Sat. night and we were at the ER until 1 am, went to bed at 2 am, but my internal clock had me up at 7! Anyway... I think your little punch animals are super cute!! And love the charms, they look like earrings.

  14. You did a great job using your punches. Those paper piecings are too cute!

  15. i like those.. very nice :D... the snoring reminds me of the time we had the guys stay the night, and i could hear the one snoring from my room.. it was very loud.

  16. hey thanks for visiting my blog and your nice comments!! Love those charms, super cute!!!

  18. Love the paper piecing! Good job! Ugh! I know all about snoring hubbies. Don't know what it is like to have a full night's sleep. :-P
    Hope you get better sleep tonight!

  19. Those charms are SO pretty! I didn't get to create all weekend - my gal's school play, parent teacher conference the day after tomorrow and still three weeks to go on the master's. But at least I get to admire yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Gorgeous creations to see Tracy, the punched characters are fab and are great card toppers. And more beautiful charms.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  21. I used to make lots of charms, but haven't done that in a couple of years. I really need to since I have so much stuff left. Maybe after seeing your cute ones, it might inspire me to do at least a few....maybe.

    And girl, how many punches do you have to be able to make all those darling little designs??? Can you say ADORABLE?!!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
