Etsy Inspired #135 - Creating Is Fun!

Saturday, April 16, 2011


I'm soooo excited. Just booked my first cruise. If you have any cruisin' advice please pass it on. :) Now let's get to the Etsy Inspired Challenge!

Our featured shop is:
Creating is Fun!

This shop is full of beautiful buttons, lace trim, and ribbon.

I was inspired by the RED and BLACK ribbon


For my project I took a piece of Chipboard and made a cute "Rah Rah Cheer Tag".


I have so many ring clips lying around. I added one to this project as well as some fun Thickers. These are great to clip onto a bag, purse or backpack. And they are fun to give as gifts too.

How exciting that you will be going on a cruise. I've only ever taken a 3-day cruise am certainly no expert. My only advice would be to have a wonderful, wonderful time - and take heaps of photos!

Angie, have fun in your cruise! I've done it twice (13+ years ago), we were suggested to bring fancy clothes for dinner and the night shows....and they were right! I also have to tell you, both times I put lots of weight on!...they had food available at all times, they even had midnight buffet!!, forgot to mentioned I had the best coctails ever while cruising!!
BTW, cute project!!!

Ruby said...

Oh how fun Angie! Love her little pom poms! how fun to book a cruise! Bet you can't wait!

Audrey Pettit said...

My goodness, how cute!! That cheerleader really makes me smile. LOVE her pom poms. :)
Congrats on booking your first cruise. My only advice would be to be sure to bring along some Dramamine and some of those sea-sick wrist bands. I never thought I could get sea sick on a huge cruise ship, but I was a mess the entire time. Really needed those items. So I would have them along, just in case. You can always buy them on board, but you will pay out the nose for them.

Sandy Ang said...
