Still Quilting with Pat Sloan; Following Her Vacation 2015 BOM

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I didn't realize it had been awhile since I posted.  I've been working on a very special quilt and I will show the final product when it is gifted and opened. It will be ready by June 5 (I'm hoping).

Here is block five of Pat Sloan Vacation Bom for 2015.  This BOM has been really fun to follow.  I chose my fabrics from a whole line and then some and they were on clearance yet to boot. I love that!

I received a Stampin Up order in on Friday. The grandchildren left Friday evening, so hopefully I'll be playing with those sets on Memorial Day. No bar-b-q's that I've heard of as of yet. :(

Here are my very special blocks.  Enjoy! and have a terrific long weekend!!




As Always Happy Crafting and Thanks for stopping by!

Quilting with Pat Sloan; Following Her Vacation 2015 BOM

Hi Stampers an Stitchers,

well, I've been making cards and so excited about it that I mailed them without taking their photo. Duh!

So here's the quilting project I've been following this year. It's my first BOM in a very long time. I'm getting better as I go. Practice makes perfect right? (chuckles)

The BOM I've been following is by Pat Sloan. You can read about Pat here.  I'm having a lot of fun following these quilt blocks. I'm making more quilts so sometimes one block a month really helps. :D

Please ask me any questions that you may have.

There are some retiring products at SU!

Here are the weekly deals!

Be sure not to miss out on your favorites.  Of course there's always a clearnace rack which I love a great deal!

No pressure what so ever! I just wanted to mention it to you for the great deals!

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. :-)




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

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

GRADUATION CARDS 2015 AND STAMPIN UP PRODUCT

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.




This card is here.
