Stylin' Stampin' Squad May Blog Hop

Hello it is once again time for our Blog Hop! Did you just come from Rose's blog? If so welcome if not then you can continue around and make the complete Blog Hop. Leave us comment so we know that you stopped by. Today I have several projects to share with you some for Mom and one is a 3-D item with my daughter in mind. With May being the last month to get the retiring items I wanted to focus on several of the retiring items. So I pulled out one of my favorite sets that will soon be unavailable Fifth Avenue Floral and decided to do a One Sheet Wonder and see how many cards I could make. I was able to do six with one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Whisper White Card Stock. The colors are Blushing Bride, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Sahara Sand as a neutral. I also used the Sincere Salutaions Stamp Set that is also retiring soon and several of the retiring ribbons. These cards would be perfect to give mom for Mother's Day so she is ready for card giving through out the year.

 The next project is made with the Summer Smooches Fabric and don't worry if you missed purchasing it last month because it will be available again in June when the new catalog comes out. I wanted to make a skirt for my daughter and when I asked her how she wanted it made she mentioned that she would like it to have a jean top.  So I upcycled a pair of jeans that had a hole in them and cut off just the top portion then added an under skirt and added the ruffles in layers. I used one package of fabric on this skirt and I really like the way it turned out. What a great way to use a pair of old jeans and make them something fun and useful again.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the Blog Hop. I will post close up pictures of the cards in the Mother's Day set later this week and will be holding  a class this month too. Just check my calendar if you are local. Have a great day, Tonya
