Mother's Day Project 2009

This idea came straight out of one of Donna Downey's amazing books, I think "Fabric Scrapbooks". I thought it might inspire someone (even if it's just me :)). Whenever I type a smiley at the end of a parentheses like that, I think it looks like it has a double chin! Not the look I'm going for LOL

I thought these little "in the hoop" wallets/ post it note holders were cute prizes for this jungle-themed shower. We played a couple of jungle-themed games, of course! The design is from Sewing for Sarah, I really enjoy her unique designs!

Baby Bibs

Designs from Embroidery Library

Baby Blanket

This was a baby blanket I made for Amanda's baby. The design is from Smartneedle.

Amanda's Baby Shower

These were so much fun to do for my friend Amanda's baby shower. Her sweet baby came very early, so the shower was actually AFTER he was born, but we had lots of fun, anyway!

Easter Banner

This was my first time cutting out fabric with the Cricut. I used the Lyrical Letters cart for the letters. They are cut from white satin. I used a wonder under-type product and then used the mirror image so I could place the right side down on the cricut and the blade would go through the paper (rather than the fabric) side first. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. You can't see it in the pictures, but all elements are lined with gold foil which really catches the light during service. Hurray for "cricuting" for the Glory of God!

baby gift

I love how this set turned out. The changing pad is a colorful, soft corduroy on the front and a pink quilted vinyl on the back. The bib has a sweet paisley on it from Designs by JuJu

Princess Layout

I originally created these pages with thoughts of trying to sell them on ebay, but after I finished them, I decided to keep them! I embroidered the princess (Designs by JuJu) and started with her. I used Storybook, Serenade, and Happily Ever After carts. I can't wait to find the perfect pics for this layout!

Lyrical Letters Cards

These were so much fun to make. I've had this cart for a while, and just recently discovered the awesome card sentiments and shapes. Hope you like them!
