wait to share. I used the super cute Twitterpated Designer Fabric from the Occasions Mini and the Dresden Designs Bigz L Die also from the Mini to make the quilt. With the Big Shot and the Die it was a quick process to cut all the pieces for this quilt and the best thing is that all the petal pieces are the same size because the die cuts them for me. I used the small sized petal which is 2 3/4" x 6 1/8" but there is a large option on the same die which measures 3 1/4" x 7 5/8" if you want a larger petal.
I have added a closer picture so you can see just a bit more of how I made this quilt. I am planning on finishing it and think it would make a great baby quilt. What do you think? Would you like to give quilting with the Big Shot a try? If so contact me and I will be happy to show you how easy it really is. Thanks for stopping by today and for taking a look at my quilt. Have a great day, Tonya

The second card is even simplier with just Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla Card Stock. The ribbon is from the Sale-a-bration brochure and is only available until March 31st. It is 1/8" Organdy Ribbon and you get two spools one of Lucky Limeade and one of Calypso Coral for placing a $50 order. I used markers to color this image and used the following colors: Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Peach Parfait, Early Espresso and Blush Blossom. The inside of this card has the sentiment "to gnome you is to love you" from the Gnomenclature Stamp Set that has extra Gnome sentiments to expand your Gnome Sweet Gnome Set. I hope to this set some more time later but for know I am going to work on a blog hop challenge for the upcoming April 5th Blog Hop that I will be participating in. Make sure and mark your calendars as you won't want to miss the projects that everyone shares. Thanks for stopping by today and as always have a great day, Tonya

Hello, I am busy getting ready for club tonight and have four new cards to share with you but for now I want to share with you another Digital Page I made last week. This one was even easier than the last in that this is a premade page and all I had to do was drop my picture in and do some journalling. I made no changes to the page just left it as it was. How simple right? Have you tried My Digital Studio yet? If not what are you waiting for? It really is a fun option and it allows me to scrapbook all my digital pictures that are just stored on my computer. Well, I am off to finish getting ready. Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow for one of our club cards that I will be sharing. Have a great day, Tonya

Hello, I was going through some of my drafts that didn't get posted and a came across this card. I hope I haven't all ready shared it with you but if so maybe someone else hasn't had a chance to see it yet. This card is one I did for Convention swaps last July and uses a technique called Wet Stamping. It is really easy to do and really can change the way a stamp set looks. For this card I used Fifth Avenue Floral and Word Play. The colors are Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Regal Rose and Basic Gray Satin Ribbon. I also used Watercolor Paper which is an important part of the technique and the Scallop Trim Border Punch. If you would like more information about this technique please let me know and we can set up a private class for you and a few friends. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend, Tonya

Hello and welcome to your March Blog Hop! Whether you are joining me from Rose's Blog or just started here be sure and work your way through all the wonderful blogs. There is a complete list at the end of this post and if you click on the Next Blog Button it will take you on your way. This month one of our themes is Spring and the card I am going to share with you just feels so Springy to me. The colors are just so light and fun and of course Spring is the start of all the wonderful flowers that start to emerge after a long winter. The supplies for this card are from the Occasions Mini and include: Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, Bordering on Romance Stamp Set, Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and Textured Impressions Folders, Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die, Sincere Saluations Stamp Set, Baja Breeze Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Blushing Bride Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Island Indigo Classic Ink Pad, Riding Hood Red Classic Ink Pad, Basic Gray Classic Ink Pad, Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pad and 5/8" Whisper White Ribbon.
My second project is a fabric project and what girl doesn't want a new bag for their new Spring or Easter outfit? The ruffled bags have been showing up all over the place in catalogs and on pinterest and I decided to try and make one myself. I read through a few tutorials but in the end I just sort of winged it and while I love how it turned out I did find a few things that I would change for the next time. Like finishing my edges differently. The best part about this bag is the fabric is free this month with a $50 order. I used all of the pink prints in the Flirtatious Designer Fabric and then with the third I made a head band which I will share with you another day. I also used1/2" Melon Mambo Scallop Dots Ribbon for the trim and for the straps (which are fed through button holes on the sides of the bag) to carry the bag which is a draw string back pack style. While making the bag I decided my next project is going to be an apron with more cute ruffles. I just have to decide which fabric to use next. I have really loved doing more sewing projects lately and have a major project to share with you in the next few weeks, but it isn't quite ready yet. :)
