Gcd Studios make these cute little necklaces to coordinate with the Chip Art tool. I created a crackle finish on mine. I added some bling and distressed the edges with some paint. They are fun and easy to create. They would be perfect birthday party projects.

Pinwheels and circle punches. gcd Studios

To be completely honest. Pinwheels were always a challenge for me. I would look at them and feel quite confused at the way the blades laid. For some reason my brain just couldn't "go there".
I saw some of these browsing the net this week and I knew I wanted to figure out how to make them. They turned out to be very quick and easy to create. They can be created in less than 5 minutes. I think I'm going to making a lot of these in the near future!

Pinwheel Tutorial:

Punch 4 circle of the same size.

Cut each circle in half. You will have 8 halves.

Punch a smaller circle and cove with adhesive.
Lay 4 halves evenly on circle.

Take the remaining circles and layer them over the
bottom halves. (all halves go the same direction)

Have a super day! ~lori

Now you all know I'm a little rusty in the SB area. I gave it up for cards and altered projects. That means a challenge like this really stretches my comfort zone. Which is a good thing!! Anywho......This month we were challenged to create a l/o using photos of our town. This is what I came up with using the Independence collection. I kept my l/o very simple so the photos would be the main focus.

Our town is the first capital of Ohio. We celebrated 200 years in 2003. Chillicothe holds a lot of Ohio history. With farming still being a fairly big industry.
Downtown host several quaint shops. We enjoy strolling through them occasionally. My mom celebrated her birthday last week and in honor of her day I took her shopping downtown and bought her brunch at one of the little cafes. Fun times! :)

Photos left to right: united methodist church (walnut street), yoctangee park (water street), united methodist church (walnut street), in honor of fallen soldiers statue (water street), Lloyd's Sweet Shoppe (water street), The Pump House (Yoctangee park)
TSM for stopping by!
