I made this summer bag out of home dec fabric. I thought the embroidery design was so cute. This was a very quick project that took about 2 hours. There is wide black ribbon in the center of the bag to tie it closed.
I made this dog for my cousins son. It was so much fun making it, a friend and I had to work together to decipher the directions. LOL Sewing directions and I don't get along very well. It's hard for me to figure them out sometimes.
I have been working on a hand applique quilt for 5 years. When Provo Craft released Preserves Cart I knew I had to have it. The quilt has fruit in the center of each block. So my plan is to cut the fruit with my cricut and heat set it on the quilt. I'm hoping it won't take another 5 years. LOL I know it won't, it will go fast using the cricut method.
The new Stampin Up catalog is my inspiration for my latest project. There is a frame on page 98 that I love. It seemed pretty simple but the wire is anything but simple to attach to the frame. Here are a couple of pictures after I sprayed primer on the frame.
I decided to repost the album I made for Becca's Vintage album swap. There are pages that I forgot to post. I had so much fun making this album for Michelle, my swap partner. She received my album on Friday and said she loved it. I'm so glad!
I just received my album from my partner, Michele. The album is just amazing, I am so happy with it. Michele used one of my favorite cartridges, Forever Young for some of the cuts. My album to Michele went postal today. I am so happy to have it in the mail to her. It feels really good to complete a swap and have it in the mail on time.
It has been so long since my last post. I've been sick and had my gall bladder removed. Boy oh boy was that an experience! LOL Then I got sick again after the surgery. Now on to the fun stuff.
Joanne Huber, a local Stampin Up Rep has Stamp Camp once a month. I went on Friday for the first time in months. We made some really nice cards. Here are 2 baby cards we made. We make 5 different cards, 2 of each design for a total of 10 cards. I had so much fun with the girls.
I was watching Kathy make these beaded charms. Needless to say I was inspired to try to make them. They are so much fun to make and really dress up your mini albums. Joann's has a starter bead kit you can buy for $19.99 that has everything you need. You can use a 40% off coupon to get it for less. I was lucky enough to have a 50% off coupon.
I want to share my love of paper crafting. I grew up in a very creative environment. My mother had my sister and I crafting as little kids. My love for it stayed with me as well as fond memories.
I have 2 Airedale Terriers , Otto and Emma. They are like my children. Yes I'm one of those people. LOL
