More summer projects

Few more crafty projects from this summer. 
I made this layout for Crafting Jewish Style blog back in May. The Design Team used Anam Stubbington's sketch
I picked 2 pictures from Shavuot celebration in our moshav. (I am the one with the headband, holding little Lila.) All papers are from Crafting Jewish Style Hanukkah collection. Once again, I used my trusty heart squeeze punch to make the scallop border. The flowers are made with Lifestyle Crafts die. The pictures were taken during the tractor ride so I had to add the tractor. I googled for tractor coloring page, printed it and used it as a template to cut my tractor pieces.

Supplies: patterned paper and sticker (Crafting Jewish Style), die and die-cut machine (Lifestyle Crafts), flower cabochons (Recollection), border punch (Fiskars), squeeze punch (Fiskars), hebrew letter stickers, brads

The next card I made for Bar Mitzvah of one of Lila's classmates. I used the papers from the same Hanukkah collection but just stayed with the blues to give it a masculine look.
Supplies: patterned paper (Crafiting Jewish Style), cardstock (American Crafts), twine (We R Memory Keepers), circle punch (EL Success), corner punch (Fiskars), ink

The last project is another Bar Mitzvah card with altered printers trey. I always wanted to make one of this. I bought wooden numbers at Michaels (13 is the Bar Mitzvah age) and colored them with black acrylic paint. When they were dry I sanded them and covered with glimmer mist. I did the same with the chipboard letters. The big Star of David is printed on a vellum.The small square with the Star of David and Hebrew words was part of the invitation. 

I am still not sure if it was a good idea. I don't know about the boy but I hope his mom liked it.

I have more projects to share but we will leave them for another time. I went through hundreds of posts in my google reader, trying to decide what subscriptions to keep and what I will have to let go. I need to limit myself to some manageable amount. I think I am almost there.  So, I am wondering, how many blogs are in your google reader?


  1. Maya, I think the printer's tray was a great's beautiful!

  2. Love these projects! If Seth is anything like my DS, he would have been thrilled with that altered printer's tray (even if he didn't say so!).
