New Crafting Projects

This week I received a new kit from Charlotte Lyons, a "Folding Paper Tray". She sent instructions and a variety of papers/images to use. I couldn't wait to make it. I could of used the papers that she sent, but I was anxious to use this new paper line that Connie Govea Stuart told me about; K&Company's Olivia Rose. Here's how it came out...
When you untie the sides it can lie flat for storing.

The next project I worked on this weekend was PaperClay. It was inspired by Connie Govea Stuart in some of her projects and also an article she had in Somerset Life. I used the Crayola Model Magic color bisque. I first molded a bunch of shapes and then stamped a images on them, then made button holes.

I can't wait to use these on some of my projects...thanks CGS for your inspiration.


  1. The paper tray is very sweet and I'm sure will come in very handy for use when traveling. But I love the paper clay art...they are absolutely adorable. I guess you can color them, but they look good just in black & white.

  2. Love the tray. I took Connie's paper clay button class and it was so fun making the buttons. You did such a good job of stamping, I think I had too heavy of a hand at first but I love the majority of the ones I made. I have never seen the bisque color, I like it much better than the white.
