I was so excited to find out last week that I won all of these goodies from Love My Paper. Emily already claimed some items for herself. I can not wait to use my new Cricut cartridge for Emily's dance recital pictures. Thank you La-kesha for this wonderful gift of goodies.
I have been meaning to post this for awhile. I made Emily's Christmas dress along with one for Rebecca her American Girl doll. For Christmas she got a My Twinn and a dress to match also. I know enough about sewing that when you make more then one item and add up the amount of fabric you need for each to purchase you will have some extra, since you can move the pattern pieces around to fit better and save fabric, but more then three yards extra was a lot. With all of the extra fabric I decided to make myself a skirt to match, I still could of made something else out of what was then left.
I decided to post this for A Delightful Waste of Time'sblog challenge on gift packaging. I just used a plain brown bag for this with white tissue. The papers are Close to My Heart from the Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection along with the Adorn-able stamp set to create the ornaments. The Merry Christmas came from the St Nick set. I embossed most of the stamping on this. The bottom picture I am showing you how the bag covers look from the front and back side. To make the bag topper cut it the width of your bag and then decide how far you want it to come down and then double that length. Fold your paper in half and cut a slit a quarter of an inch wide and for the length cut it a quarter of an inch longer on each side then the width of your handles. The bottom border I used a Martha Stewart boarder punch. For the tissue paper I random stamped using CTMH All the Best stamp set in cranberry, cocoa, and new england ivy.
was to create something for a birthday. I used an empty Ovaltine jar for this, the stamp set is Waltzing Mouse Rescue Remedies which goes with Spellbinders Labels 4 dies. Papers are Close To My Heart Veranda.
I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children, which I thank Jesus for. My passion is scrapbooking and crafting. My family knows the camera comes out for all events and activities. Yes my husband complains when I ask him to take a picture of me, though I also want to be included in the scrapbooks which I spend so much time on. Because of my love of scrapbooking and Close to My Heart products has led me to becoming a consultent.
