Heart Wreath

I saw this awesome heart wreath on this wonderful blog (The Idea room) and thought it was a perfect wreath for Valentine's day. 

I purchased the foam heart at Hobby Lobby and purchased 2 yards of red felt at Walmart.

I used a 2" inch cirlce punch as my guide to cut out the circles needed and pinned them into the foam.  I must have cut more than 300 circle pieces... I lost count after cutting so many. 

The Idea room blog has better instructions than what I have placed below... please visit their site for instructions and inspiration.

Circle Pattern

Felt Circle folded in half and then folded in half again.

Once circle has been folded and refolded a pin is placed thru at the bottom.

Instert pin into foam heart.

Heart wreath almost at completion....

Zutter Bind It All ( Need Help!!!!!)


I got the Zutter Bind It All for Christmas and I'm having a hard time figuring it out.  I am working on a journal that is 7 1/2 inches (Cover) and the inner pages are 7 2/8ths.... I have followed the instructions on the instruction manual but after I finish punching the inner pages... they do not match the holes to the cover page.    I need help desperately... can someone please send me directions or if you have a video, I would love to see it.  Thank you for your help.

Back to the Gym!


This post has nothing to do with crafting but I just wanted to share it with everyone.  As part of my New Year resolutions... I woke up this morning with the thought of joining a gym.. so I signed up my dear hubby and I.  We went this afternoon and oh boy I used equipment I had never used in my life and my body is feeling the aches.  I had planned in coming home and using my bind it all to create some journals but my bones ache and my daughter still needs to get bathed and into bed.  I will update ya'll on how I'm doing my goal is to get healthy and loose some weight this year.

I plan to work on my journals tomorrow so I will post pics tomorrow.  Good night everyone.
