Bunny time !

Sewed these cute bunnies to add as basket fillers.  So cute on the shelf too.  They are fast and easy and take very little material.  You can make them in various sizes and materials.  

Sewing bunnies!

Spring Chicken ??

 Spring is around the corner... so I dug out my embossing folder and waterproof inks. A little fussy cutting that was pretty easy.

Playing with some watercolor today...Its really fun but I noticed some colors are easier than others.  I find reds a little hard to perfect. This stamp set is so versatile and has a sense of humor !

Easter Chicks !

Nothinall the small pieces I cut out at the same time.  I was making a chicken card at the same time as this chick card.   All the little eyes and little beaks made me break out the tweezers.  I have another stamp that says "Chicks Rule" thinking I will try this card again using that saying for the banner.  Thought it would add some humor for my friends card.

Onesie - Baby Shower Gift.

This came out so cute...  I covered the chip board shape with Graphic 45 papers.  The green doily and flowers were from Michaels.

Ruffled elastic trim and small safety pin created a pocket

Mini book...

Baby bib with pockets...

Waterfall style pages.

Side pocket with tab. Finding ways to allow the receiver to add pictures without glueing too many embellishments in the way but also making it have a cute finished look.

Pocket page that opens to the side and is held shut by the New Arrival. 

I had to make my own pattern to create this collar and cuffs. I was short on paper so had to get creative and piece this background onesie in 2 pieces and covered the gap with a belly strip of the flowered paper.  
Created some baby booties by using an old Quickutz die that made a Christmas stocking.

Some ribbons that worked perfectly... The striped one was really old and was by Making Memories.  I loved the gold sparkle edge to the pink one.  It just added that perfect touch.

Adding trims really finished this project off.  I have quite a stash of ribbons and lace in my craft room. This pink was on the peach side so it was a little bit of a challenge.  I found a package of trim I found in a dollar bin from Michaels that worked perfectly.  Getting the right one to work on the curved neck and legs was the key as flat lace doesn't curve that way.

You've got "Valentine" Mail !

Valentine's Day is only a couple of days away now...Finally had a quiet moment to make a card to cheer someone up.

What a month its been... but you realize when things are tough who is really special in your life.  I found the perfect stamp for the back of this box card in a new stamp set I bought by Hampton Art.  There are some nice Valentine Sentiments with cute hearts and font styles.

Recipe Mini Album is done !!!

The cover - doily die and a front pocket. This is a nice album project that doesn't take a ton of time.  I have made others that were more complicated...

The spine...

Spine on the opening side... it opens in half and then opens again.

I added some printable cooking measurement tables to make it more handy when cooking. The shapes of these made them look like embellishments also.   

Overall look of the book laid out flat.  The two middle sections have pages that flip.
