Having a ball with my eCraft

Santa isn’t very good at keeping secrets – he made it kind of obvious that he was bringing me a purple eCraft for Christmas. Hubby has actually played around with the eCraft more than I have, and he finally figured out how to get it to cut out the template from How About Orange to make these cool 3D balls from CB2:

I picked up a big pack of scrapbooking paper at HomeSense, and now I’m having fun making balls :-)

This is the first one I made, so I used colours that aren’t my favourites in case there was a screw-up.

Of course, I had to make one in purple & turquoise :-)

And a beach-inspired ball in blue and light brown.

These balls are so much fun to make, especially now that I don’t have to cut out each of the twelve pieces to make them! Now I need to work on some other projects that I’ve seen. I think I’m going to take a shot at something like this next:

  2. So very cool! I want one too!!! :)

  3. I love these balls Kelly. I think you might need to open an etsy shop. As soon as I saw them I thought of the heart artwork. Can't wait to see how you tackle that. Have a great weekend.

  4. These are so cool. They'd look great hanging in a kids room!

  5. I have never heard of this implement - if one calls it that - but I am going to read up on it !!

  6. Of course the first thing you would make with your e craft would be balls! They are lovely. Looking forward to see what else you create with this.

  7. Oh that is too cool!! I love that, your hubby is a keeper. I heart the turquoise and purple too :) You'll have to show us what else you do with this nifty eCraft.

    Kelly I'm excited that you tried my new fav chocolates!! Are you enjoying them? I'm enjoying them a little too much. And the point was supposed to be that I was trying to lessen my intake of sweets. Oh boy.

  8. I've had my eye on the hearts art for some time now. I'm looking forward to your version!! Have fun with your new eCraft :-)

  9. These are so fun, Kelly!

    I would absolutely love it if you would link this up at my FREE-FOR-ALL linky party!

    Hope I get to see you there1

    P.S. I'm following now. : )

  10. Hey Kelly!

    Thought you might want to know that I'm featuring you tomorrow for Feature Friday Free-for-All!
