Dust Covers!!

I made a dust cover for my big shot . I found a video on youtube by cherylswindow. It was very simple to just follow her and make the dust cover. I used an infusible lining underneath.

Then,I saw a beautiful dust cover in pazzles craft room which inspired me to make one for my pazzles. The pattern was originally designed by Roxanne. She was so nice and gracious to upload the pattern online for everyone to use! I used her pattern to make mine. I changed it a bit because I was not comfortable sewing the reversible dust cover. So I put a infusible lining underneath and used the measurements from the pattern. It came out beautiful!!Thank you Roxanne for the beautiful pattern.

So now I have two matching dust covers!:)If anyone needs the link to any of the patterns, please leave a note! I am so proud of myself:D

Ifitsgroovy Stamp Challenge!

I loved this challenge. When I first heard about it..I was thinking how am I going to do this now!! But it really forced me to think out of the box. I looked through all the envelopes I had saved from the cards and letters I have received. I found this very cute heart stamp. I decided to use this stamp and looked for an old photo of me and Sid back in college. We were much in love that time..We still are ;) LOL!

I used Pastel Pink DCWV cardstock as my base and inked it up. I love inking!! I used both the stamp and the negatives of the stamp to make the title of my layout. I chalked around the stamp to get the white blocks with postage border to write my title in.

I had tons of fun working on this layout! I hope you will give it a try. Looking forward to see what you all come up with!

The sketch I used is from 52sketches52weeks. They have awesome sketches.

Supplies: Fiskars Sure Cut Deluxe Trimmer, DCWV Pastel Cardstock, Frances Meyer Pattern Paper, Crafter Workshop "Dots all Around" Doodling Template, Nestabilities Classic Circle, Sassfras Flowers, Buttons, Red Chalk and Ribbon from my stash, CTMH Red ink, Fiskars Pink Ink.

Simple Stamping!

I made these for ifitsgroovy.....just sharing on my blog again!

I wanted to show you how to make some very easy cards. I love stamping and it is a fun way to create your own pattern paper. I looked through my stamps, selected a few and just started stamping. Then, I added some ribbon and stamped the sentiment. I had a plain orange ribbon, so I stamped the little flowers on it to match my pattern paper. This was my first experiment with stamping on ribbon and I really liked the way it came out. I am definitely going to do more ribbon stamping in the future. Let's see what stamps you have hiding in your treasure and get stamping!
