Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

90th Birthday - 90 Flowers

My grandmother, who lives with us, turned 90 this past Wednesday and we had a family celebration last weekend.  Rather than make a birthday card, I decided to make 90 paper flowers to celebrate her 90 years.  Out came my Sizzix Big Shot (my latest tool addiction) and Brenda Pinnick's Sizzix Originals Die - Flower, Beauty Bloom #655455 flower die.    Once I decided on my color palette (inspired by the fun Linnie Bell Collection from Pebbles, Inc.), I searched through my vast (hoarded) collection of papers and got busy.  Each flower has 4 layers, and a wire stem hot glued to the bag to help them stand up in the basket.  A gift card was slipped into a bamboo skewer and inserted in the bouquet.  She was quite pleased with her lasting bouquet!
