Celebrating with a Creative Chick

I have something very exciting to share with you today! My sweet friend Jenn Shurkus asked her creative friends to help her out with a blog feature this month. She's sharing a personal creation every day, along with a creation by one of her friends. The theme is ocean/summer/nautical ... which shouldn't surprise you if you know Jenn at all. ;) I've so enjoyed seeing all of the creations so far, and am so excited to share mine today!

I'm sure you've all seen the specimen punch art creations floating around the internet for the past few years. They still tickle my fancy though! I had this Martha Stewart shadow box thing sitting around, and decided to use that for my project. This was so much fun to create. I hope you like it!

A Muse Studio: Cardstock (Sage, Latte, Sky), Diamond Glitter, Latte Perfect Pearls, Sky Satin Ribbon
Etc: Martha Stewart Shadow Box, Martha Stewart Sand Dollar Double Punch, Glue Dots, 3D Adhesive, Xyron

And ... a BONUS creation, courtesy of Lily! Lily is my daughter - she's 11 years old and crafty like her mama. Although, her creations sometimes put me to shame. I mean ... check out her project! Sure, I can punch some shapes out of cardstock and tie some ribbon. But this girl can paint!


So, here's the exciting part. Lily and I are donating our items to Jenn's silent auction with proceeds going towards medical expenses for her good friend's mom.

Get all the details and BID ... here!

Bid often and bid high, people. The highest bidder will get 31 creations by Jenn Shurkus alone, PLUS a bunch of creations from her crafty friends - like these two I've shared today. :)


  1. Someone is going to be very lucky to receive these two beautiful projects. I just love sand dollars and yours are colorful and sparkly. Lily, I love your sparkly wave. Great work, girls!

  2. WOW! Both of these projects are BEAUTIFUL! I love all the buttons Lily!!
