February Coupon

I am planning on offering monthly coupons and/or specials. Here is the first special! Contact me if you would like to take advantage of this great offer!!

Tissue Pouch made with Stampin Up Fabric

Hello stampers and crafters! My husband bought me a fabulous new sewing machine back in November for my 40th birthday. He was shocked that I asked for that for a special birthday! I have been playing around with it and trying to teach myself to sew and quilt. I found this tutorial on Pinterest for the tissue pouches. I made about 8 in an hour! They are perfect for little scraps of fabric and such. They would make great gifts for teachers and friends that are under the weather! I made mine using the Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric (#122337, $9.95) and also added an Antique Brad (#117273, $5.95 for 20) and a loop made from Very Vanilla 1/8" taffeta ribbon (#119960, $5.95).

Give them a try! They are super easy!!!

Thanks for looking!

A Red Rose.....or cherry cobbler

Hello stampers!! It has been over a year since I have posted anything to this blog!! I thought I would post this card just to see if I have any followers left! If you know longer want to receive updates, feel free to unsubscribe. Trust me, I completely understand! I am going to try to at least post once a week. I'm not making any promises but I am going to make an attempt!!

I know most of you have jumped on the Pinterest craze! I know I have and I am totally addicted! I CASE'd (Copy And Share Everything) from there. You can view the original here. I kept it basically the same only changing out one of the white layers for a layer of black. The rose petals and stem are made using the Bird Builder Punch (#117191).

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Black, Garden Green, and Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler (sponged the edges of the petals), Garden Green (sponging)
