BUNDLED BABY GIRL CARD WITH PINK PIROUETTE AND RIBBON

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

today I made a card for a friend. She needed a baby girl look! Perfect don't you think? :-)

If you'd like a card or two, pop me an email and I'll see what I can come up with. You can make a donation and I'll pay it forward.

The Pistachio Pudding CS is retired but Pear Pizazz would be perfect too!

The Pretty in Pink Stitched Ribbon is also retired but a nice alternative would be Pink Pirouette 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon

The pistachio pudding is prettier and more subtle in person. I'm not sure why blogger changed the color of the photo. :-)


Stamps: Bundled Baby (clear mount)


Paper: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, and Pistachio Pudding (retired)

Accessories: Pretty In Pink Stiched Ribbon (reitred), Tea Lace Paper Doilies


As Always, Happy Crafting and Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

Today I have a very fun graduation card to show you. I used Stampin up Simpy Scored Diagonal Scoring Plate  and Stampin Up Simply Scored. These items made this card a breeze to make. Loved it!!
So much so that I made two!! :D

I followed this tutorial Graduation Cap.

And here are my caps!! Pretty cute!!

I'm going to fold and place bills in the pocket of the card. A $20 a $1 and a $5 for 2015! Just spiffy!

I saw that idea on the net. There are lots of ideas on Pinterest also.   I also found another couple of ideas for credit cards and more money ideas.

EASTER BASKET IDEA FOR GIRL

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

Today I made this cute little purse for my 3 yo grand daughter. It will be her Easter basket. I will include two story books and one chocolate bunny.

There are some changes I would make to the directions. On the Moda Bake Shop website, the directions are correct for #13 but on their printer friendly version, they are a little different. Follow the website directions. For #10 I would have said to do this twice. I'm not a sewing person so for me this was trial and error. I figured out my mistake and it turned out well. Finally, for the pleat, instead of sewing both ends together at once, I sewed the two 4" x 12" pieces together on one end, folded the fabric wrong sides together, then I measure from my seam to the edge of the fabric, found my center and then made the 1" and 2" marks after that step. When I was all pinned after pinching the pleat, I then sewed the other end back together. Don't ask me why this worked better for me, I don't know. LOL

So here it is!!

Enjoy!

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me. Happy Sunday!!
