Back to School Altered Notebook

4 Aug
 
Hi everyone…I am here with a bit of a late post for Joy’s Life.com, thanks to lots of smoke in the air affecting my little one with asthma..not a fun past 48 hours, let me tell you!
This week over at Joy’s Life.com , we are all working on projects gearing up for BACK TO SCHOOL. 
I have this adorable purse to show you.  Have you seen these before????
Can you tell what it is made out of??
 
 
 
First of all let me point out I have made a sweet little tag from the LOTS OF PUN stamp set.
 
Here is a close up of the front, you can tell, but the sewing scene is all sewn into a pouch of vinyl.
 
Here is a side view and maybe now you can tell this is made from a simple inexpensive composition notebook.
 
Here is the inside.
 
More of the inside.
 
Here is a view of the back.
 
One last look at the front.
 
I didn’t have pattern for this, I just kind of made it up as I went along.
I just LOVE it!  I thought it was perfect for the whole back to school theme.
Maybe a bit fancy for grade school, but maybe for the up and coming new designer, seamstress?  
Who knows!  It is just SEW DARN CUTE!!
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

Sweet Stamps goes Back to School

30 Aug

It is Tuesday which means….It is time to issue another Sweet  Stamps Challenge.

This week we are challenging you with a sketch.

Here it is.

On my card today I have used the very fun stamp called:

Umbrella 244.


You know I love to paper piece and today’ s card is proof.

I have used paper from the Authentique Paper line called Blissful.  You can see all the products for this line here.

For my apples, I just used a heart punch and cut the bottoms off to make them look like apples.

Well, what do you think?  I am rather excited how it turned out, sometimes sketches make me nervous, but not this time!

Now it is your turn!  Head on over to the Sweet Stamps blog and play along with us!

As always you will be playing to win a $20.00 Sweet Stamps.com Gift Certificate!

Have a great Tuesday!
