1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Matchbox Advent Calendar on: November 16, 2014 01:03:30 PM
------Whoops! Wrong category... Sorry  Embarrassed

I recently obtained a much-longed-for Silhouette Cameo and have been crafting with it like a mad woman. For Christmas my daughter decides the general theme and color for decorations. This year she wants Pink, orange, and gold. Hmmmm... what can I make with my new toy??? Hours online searching for the right project and... Matchbox Advent Calendar!! (inspired by ones like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=394644.0)

My doofy daughter and I had fun choosing all the fun details that went into this project. Her favorite part is the hot pink poinsettia and I love the pretty poppies.

All the flowers are from the Silhouette store and the rest of the cut files were designed by me in Illustrator.






2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / yet another Sanibel... for the PTA ;) on: March 26, 2011 06:29:59 PM
I'm a little giddy because this my first project post Shocked Grin  

My dd's school holds an annual Spring Carnival and each class auctions off themed baskets to help raise money for the PTA.  As room-mom for her class I chose the theme "Knitting for Knewbies and Know-it-alls".  I made a Sanibel-esque work bag (totally lifted from dellastella's fab fancy flea market bag, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=332817.0) and needle roll as part of the basket and here it is...

 
It measures 18 x 5.5 x 11 inches and has pockets on ALL sides...

 
Needle slots in the three front pockets, and even more pockets on the inside.

   
The needle roll/fold and the closure on the front.  Yes, all those lovely 13" bamboo needles were part of the basket Smiley


and just cause I think they're purrdy, the stitch markers I made to match Wink

It was a fun project and I like it so much that I've already started cutting to make one for me Cheesy
