All Dressed UP card. So it seemed like a good combo for this Birthday Card. The stamp set is from the Best of Birthdays Stamp Set that is part of the 25th Anniversary Collection. I used a card base of Basic Gray and added some texture with the Sqaure Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The quilt panel was made much like yesterday's in that I started with a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and 1" Square Punch. Since I was setting my square on an angle I scored a light line down the center of the card stock so help me line up my squares. After I attached the squares I ran the panel through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I added Island Indigo Card Stock that had been punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch along both the top and bottom of the panel and attached some scrunched Baja Breeze Seam Binding before attaching it to the front of my card. The sentiment was stamped twice once with Basic Gray and once with Island Indigo. I punced out the Basic Gray sentiment with the Extra Large Oval Punch and hand cut out the Birthday to add with Dimensionals to the Basic Gray. I added it to the card with more Dimensionals then added the cute little dyed flower from the 5/8" Flower Trim. Now I just need to Birthday person to send it to. Since we are home bound today I am hoping to start on my Blog Hop projects to next week. It would be nice to be a head of schedule instead of rushing all the time. Maybe these last few snow days have been our catch up time and our chance to slow down for a while. I hope you are warm and dry where ever you are. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Tonya

Day Dinner for my family that has me making a heart shape cakes per my youngest son's request sort of a deal I made with him and he held up his end of the bargain so so am I. :-) Tuesday I had a class at our local library and this is one of the items we made. I just love the Candy Wrapper Die and since is cuts and scores all at once it really makes life easy. In addition we used the new More Amore Speciality Designer Series Paper to wrap around the container. The heart is made with the Primrose Petals Core'dinations Card Stock and was cut out with the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits and then sanded. A Basic Gray banner was made with the Big Shot and Bitty Banners Framelits which goes great with the Word Window Punch and the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. So add just a few extra details to the candy wrapper we added Very Vanilla Seam Binding on each end to close our wrapper and one of the new Vanilla 5/8" Flower Trim Flowers was added. I love these little flowers and will have a card to share with you tomorrow that has a flower that I colored with our Aquapainter and Stamp Pads. Funny story, while I was handing the flowers out at the library I managed to drop one in a cup of coffee that belongs to an attendee. After I fished it out I joked about how we could die them with coffee which of course you could. There are a lot of possiblities for these cute little flowers and I hope we see them carry over after the Spring Catalog has ended.
Well, I am off to decorate a cake and a few cupcakes too. Have a wonderful day! Tonya

Now back to why it is a great time to host a workshop. Usually for a $400 workshop you would receive $65 worth of free merchandise and one other item at half price (which is great) but during Sale-a-bration you would get those items plus a package of Silver Glimmer Paper and the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper,, Madison Avenue Stamp Set in either Clear or wood mount, and the Sycamore Street Ribbon And Button Pack. Wow that is a lot of free products just for having a few friends and family over for a fun evening/afternoon of stamping. Contact me if you want the opportunity to have fun and earn free items.
Well, I must get busy. My boys decided on the way to school today that they want to make Valentine's day treats for their friends so I need to get busy cutting out boxes. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Tonya

Hello and welcome to another addition of our blog hop. If you just joined us then don't worry you can travel onto the other blogs just by following the links at the bottom of my post. I really look forward to seeing what everyone has to share each month and this month is extra exciting as we are featuring our fabric. I love to sew and our fabric has added an extra dimension to my projects. Today I have two projects to share with you with the first being a Valentine's day card. The supplies I used are Real Red Card Stock and Ink, You are loved Stamp Set, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Basic Black Card Stock, Very Vanilla Card Stock, Basic Black Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch, More Amore Designer Series Fabric, Basic Rhinestones, Illiminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad, Argyle Embossing Folder, Hearts Collection Framelits, Adorning Accents Folder and to cut the fabric I used the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die. I attached the fabric to the card with Sticky Strip. Now to move onto the next project I have to share with you. I started this next project at 8:30 last night and it went together fairly quickly.
I have been wanting to make a new purse but didn't want the traditional Rag Purse that I have made before so I decided to make it a little more traditional and add a lining inside. I used the Scallop Square Bigz Clear die and the Tea for Two Designer Fabric. I love the colors in the Fabric they look so Spring like and I am ready to Spring. After I cut out the squares I sewed them together to create the outside of my bag. I added a simple strap and then made a liner the same way I did the outside only I used a printed off white fabric. Then I just sewed the two layers together and added a top stitching aroung the top of the bag. I think I will add stitching on the square but for now it is complete. It may get a flower to just for extra decoration if I have enough fabric leftover. I think this will make a perfect Bible Bag.
I hope you enjoyed today's fabric projects. Please leave us a comment as you go along the hop so we know that you were here. Now I will send you on your way to Dawn's Creative Chalet.
Thanks for stopping by and have great day, Tonya
