Stylin' Stampin' Squad March Blog Hop

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. :)

Thanks for stopping by today. I would love to hear from you as would the other ladies in the Blog Hop. Have a great day, Tonya
