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.

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!

I loved these sweet Pretty Pony designs from Embroidery Library. The raggedy applique alphabet is from Lynnie Pinnie.
It was so much fun giving these as a Christmas gift.

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 loved getting a baseball pedicure first thing before we had our first game.

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!

This is a mini album made from the Artbooking cartridge. I love that all the measurements stay perfectly proportional as long as you keep the dial size on the one specified and don't change it. Takes the guesswork out of it. The butterfly on the front is from Art Philosophy. I also added the baby's name in pink to the floral tag.
This is a pocket that would be perfect for storing extra photos:

Missouri Star, only I made it much bigger so it would fit an extra long twin bed (he could take it to college one day!) It was reeeeeally time consuming, but worth it in the end. With the basketball jerseys (tank top style) I had to add some fabric to the square. I really love the squares that have his name on them and the button-down jerseys, too. I think the black sashing really unifies it all. This thing is crazy cozy---I use a soft fleece on the back. I also quilted a big "x" across each square. I pieced together a square of sleeves with patches and stars, too. The hardest part was trying not to melt the numbers as I ironed on the squares to the stabilizer. I hope my boy loves this for many, many years to come.

THIS Butterick pattern. I ordered the indoor/outdoor material from fabric.com I think for only a few dollars a yard (which is good because you need a lot). I went crazy trying to find 6 bamboo poles and we ended up cutting them down and adhering them to pvc pipes on the inside. I also added this fun, beaded upholstery trim across the front. It folds to basically the size of the bundled poles so it doesn't have to be up all of the time. It is also big, which is nice cause my kids are older.
