Experimenting and Having Fun!

I have been wanting to my granddaughters some cute accessories for their hair. This summer I have finally had some time to play a little more. I had already been gathering different fabrics (cotton and chiffon and other similar fabrics). I pulled out my big shot and some different dies. I used the Bigz xl Flower Folds with a cotton fabric and on a few stuffed with batting and then sewed along the edges. Then on one I just folded the flowers and layered them together. I also used the Bigz Scallop Circle #2 and Circles #2. On these last two die I used my heat gun to shrink them up and get some dimension to them. I put a brad or ribbon in the center and then used felt and the Circles #2 again to add my clip and backing to the flowers. Now my dauther-in-law can just clip them into their hair or on the stretchy elastic headbands I made from cute stretchy ribbon. They were alot of fun to make and not one of them is the same.

Samples from Shoe Box Swap

My Upline had a Shoebox swap Monday night. They are always fun because I get to see people I haven't seen for awhile not to mention the food and fun. As a result you get to see the spoils. I am sorry to say I am not sure who made which card so I cannot give credit to everyone so I am going to leave names off this time around. The two I did I totally cased from I changed some of the colors to keep it with what would be in the new catty and on the other I added the touch of the butterfly just to add some pop of color.

Recycling-But Cute!

I had a bunch of empty stamp containers and a friend suggested recycling them. So here is a project I did as a thank you gift. I put 6 handmade cards and envelopes inside. I used up retired products and I think it came out quite cute!
