Touch Twin Challenge 15 In Your Neighborhood

So glad that Betty pointed out this challenge blog to me.   Made me color, yep get out the markers and color type challenge.   I don't own that many markers so the faithful water color pencils worked.   I don't own any Copics so when I looked at Touch Twin Makers made me go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. 

As always there is a bit of twine or seam binding on my project so check out that little banner.

Be sure and check out the challenge here   Thanks for dropping by.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop April Teal, blues, and pinks

Here is the inspiration photo:


Taking care of several things at once.  First this is Papertrey Ink's blog hop challenge.   The challenge was to use some beautiful bolts of fabric in teals, sky blues, several pinks as inspiration.   One of the fabrics was a polka dot too.   This is my take on the challenge using several of their products along with bakers twine.  Papertrey ink items the two border die cuts, the flower die cut, the Happy Day label and die cut and last the little heart is one of their die cuts too.   The bit of bakers twine and seam binding is from my shop.

 Every Mother needs a heart felt card this day along with something sweet written inside.  So lets tie up something for Mom coming soon.

Make it Monday #62 Layer's upon Layers.

I thought this challenge would be fun and easy.  Then I was stumped on what to do.   I went back and looked at Betsy's video again and opened up my stamps and this is what I came up with.   I am loving stamping my own backgrounds.   I used foam and pop dots.   I love the label that is double stamped and very easy to hand cut.   So which topper do you like best.....seam binding or the twine?  Thanks for stopping by.

Easter Week Goodies to share

I am not much into the Easter Bunny.   I love the colors of spring, the birds unless they are eating my garden, and dying the eggs.   But any holiday is good for chocolate too.  I am going to post a new project with either instructions or links for how to's for the things made.   Most of my projects use the Belle Blvd paper and stickers found in  

I love these little baskets.   Perfect for shower favors, office treats, and table decor.   Of course I made them out of Easter paper and with just a touch of twine here and there on them.     Instructions to come.
