Pretty Little Cupcakes

I had so much fun creating these cupcake cards using cupcake images I made from cute fabric, I backed the fabric with interfacing then cut and embellished edging with a blanket stitch or enamel embossing.

Scribbly Bird Note Cards

I really enjoyed using my Gelatos on these Scribbly Bird Stamps by Ranger.  The stamps are fabulous, they stamp cleanly and are great for the outside of packages too.  See video below for project details.

Several Projects: Cards, ATC & a little Crochet...

Just want to get up to date with posting projects completed this summer... links to videos will be below each project.  

Chevron Scarf: made from 100% cotton that I picked up from a specialty yarn store in Cape May, NJ.  The yarn has a silky feel and drapes so lovely.  

Pattern: Chevron Lace Wrap


I've been wanting to make a 'little girl' birthday card so this is what I came up with.  Flower is created with butterfly die/punch, see video for details.


P is for Paris ATC
I love the end result of this artist trading card and it was so fun to create!


Vintage Birthday Card

Vintage birthday image is the focal point of this card with lots and lots of layering.  Also used the Anna Griffin Rosa embossing folder which gives lovely results.

Holiday Banners

I'd love to make more of these holiday banners for myself as I sent these away for a challenge. Love how they came out!  I think 5 or 6 of these draped together would be so very pretty to display at the holidays.

Crocheted Pin Cushion

I used a pattern from Leisure Arts Little Books (found at Michael's) called Thread Crochet, it was the 3rd project in the book for a potpourri sachet but I turned it into a pin cushion.  I used Tilda fabrics to create the inner cushion and then embellished with book paper leaves, seam binding, a button and locket.  See below video for more information.
