Girly Name Album

This my favorite name album so far.  I made it for a client.  I just love the colors she chose!  Gray, aqua, pink, a little purple.  So bright and pretty.

Knitted Cabled Pumpkins

I saw these knitted, cabled pumpkins on Pinterest and I absolutely had to make them. Do you ever get obsessed with the idea of creating a project or am I the only crazy one? :-)

Well, it turns out that this is a great kit from Mary Maxim with everything you need to make this project, except for the polyfil (or stuffing). I thought the kit was very reasonably priced especially since you make two pumpkins with it! I love all of the details on this project. I have always liked this burnt orange color, and the jute and burlap ribbon for the leaves are very sweet without being too country for me. :) Happy Fall!

Pretty Pony Overalls

I loved these sweet Pretty Pony designs from Embroidery Library.  The raggedy applique alphabet is from Lynnie Pinnie.

 I opened up one seam to do the pant leg.  As you can see, the design came out perfectly!

 It was so much fun giving these as a Christmas gift.

Baseball Bling

 We went to a week long baseball tournament last summer.  This called for some serious baseball bling!!!  My daughter and I found this adorable project on Pinterest (where else?) and just had to make our own.  We watched this TUTORIAL which really helped.  We did resort to clear gorilla glue to adhere the flowers to the straps and clamped binder clips to hold it all together until cured.
 I was so pleased at how easily my machine embroidered the baseball leather.  This was a little big for a keychain.  It has found a new home as a luggage tag on my son's suitcase. :)

 Here is one of the cuffs I made.  I just used embroidery floss to re-stitch the seams (also for the keychain) and stitched an elastic loop to one end and a button to the other.  I always get compliments on my baseball bling!
I loved getting a baseball pedicure first thing before we had our first game. 
Very festive!

Last of the Dance Recital Projects

 Here are the last of the projects I made for the dance recital.  This gift bag and card were for my daughter. This was her first dance recital and she had a blast.  The image above was cut from the Twinkle Toes cartridge and I embossed the turquoise cardstock.

Below is a card that was also made from the Twinkle Toes cartridge.  I love that lacy scalloped oval!! I will have to use it in the future for other cards.  The roses were from Art Philosophy.  I just glued this to an oval card base from the Art Philosophy cartridge. Simple!

Tiny Dancer Card

 This card I gave to my 3-yr-old granddaughter who was dancing in her first recital.  The mouse is from the Twinkle Toes cartridge as well as the sentiment.  She is on an action wobble, so she really dances!!  I glittered her bow with stickles and added a rhinestone for some bling on her necklace.

Bravo! Artiste Swing Card

 These are fun, dimensional cards with a unique cut. This is from the Artiste cartridge from Close to My Heart.  The great stamps (the pink rosette is just one color) come with the cartridge.  I love how easy it is to cut Cricut images that will fit the stamps perfectly.  This card was made for Joy's dance instructor after the dance recital.
