Sewing Project

I took a break from paper crafting to work on a couple of sewing projects. Here's a 3 foot tall kitty I made for my daughter. I also made one in pink for my goddaughter. I think they turned out pretty cute! As long as I had the sewing maching out, I also sewed a pillow out of a set of Hannah's shirts a friend had embroidered and I didn't want to throw away, and sewed new curtains for Hannah's room. I do miss my paper, though, so bye-bye sewing maching - I'll bring you out another day!

Another Song Challenge

This week's song at Scrap it With a Song is Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors". I picked up on the line "and that's why I love you" for the title for a layout featuring my loves. This was a quick one - I really like pairing a bright color with blacks/greys lately. The letters are cut with the Designer's Calendar font.

Busy Busy

I've been crafting up a storm - but not keeping up with it all on my blog. Sorry about that, for I love to share. First, I finished a 22 page album for friends. Then I sat at my sewing machine with an actual pattern (it's been awhile!) to create a 3 foot fleece kitty for my adorable god-daughter. Of course, I had to fit in some card making for birthdays, anniversaries, and Mother's Day. And then a few layouts for myself and Scrapdoodles. I was lucky enough to come in just after they put the new CratePaper "Paper Dolls" collection out. It's so cute and very girly! The chipboard accents are awesome.

I also picked up a few pieces from Fancy Pants Designs new "My Family" line. The colors are great for any type of layout. They are also featuring a mix of acetate accents with fun glitter features. I loved the line "all because two people fell in love..." on the border sheet and thought of my parents. I've got 5 great siblings all because Jim and Sandy fell in love.
