2  Memorial Shadow Boxes for The Best Pup in the World in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by LovelyMiss on: January 07, 2017 05:50:59 AM
I wasn't sure where to put these, but since most of the "crafting" part I did on them was paper related, I figured this might be a good place. Smiley

Our family dog, and everybody's favorite little princess, Bijou, passed away a few months ago after having canine degenerative myelopathy (which is like doggie ALS) for the past two or three years.  Everyone in the family has taken it pretty hard, so I put together some memorial shadow boxes for the main six of us for Christmas.

I made a ton of paper carnations for inside the boxes (and then ended up only using about half of them).  Aside from that I just chose and cut down decorative papers that kind of matched the colors/themes/personalities of each box.  Everyone got a different photo that I tried to match to everything/everyone as well.  The mini frames inside holding the photos are from the dollar store.  Each box got one of her collars and another toy/item that she used or played with regularly. 

This one went to my grandma:



This one went to my step-dad:



This one went to my mom:



This one went to my brother:



This one went to my great-uncle:



And this one is mine.  I made the little heart the bear is holding as a toy for her a couple of years ago.  Smiley



I also included metal name plates that I etched using my Silhouette.



It was hard to get a photo of them all together, but I tried.



And, just because, here is one of my favorite photos of her from when she was about one year old.



Thanks for looking!  We love you, Bijou!

8  Vanilla Extract in Recipes and Cooking Tips by LovelyMiss on: January 01, 2017 11:46:46 PM
Like so many others, I was inspired by Mistress Jennie and made vanilla extract as gifts this year.




I made the label in Publisher and then cut it out with my Silhouette.  It was attached with repositionable Xyron tape so it will be easy to remove.







I got some nice parchment-style printer paper and just used by black and white laser printer to print the labels.  Since I knew I wasn't going to use my color ink jet printer, I designed the label with an old-timey look. Cheesy




I was short on time and options for packaging, so I just found these cute bags and wrapped up the vanilla in tissue paper.




I ended up with a dozen bottles, and they were snatched up quickly at my "gift buffet."



Everyone was impressed that I had been holiday crafting since October.  Haha, if they only knew it really starts in January.  Cheesy

9  Cuff Scarves in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LovelyMiss on: January 01, 2017 11:16:49 PM
I made six of these scarves for the holidays.  One was for me, two were for me to give away, and three were requested by a friend to give away.



I wanted to make them for two reasons.  One, I had this plaid flannel in my stash, which was for a different project, but didn't end up working out the way I wanted.  And two, it was a reason to use my Kamsnaps press.  Which is super fun and reason alone to make things!  Cheesy



The first two I sewed following a general size guideline that was floating around pinterest.  They were huge, and very, very warm.  Which is good sometimes, but I wanted them to be a fashion option, and not just an outside in sub-zero option.  So, I did a bunch of math and figured out a smaller size for the rest of them.



I bought 8" x 10" leather sheets from the craft store, and cut them down into 8" x 3" strips.  Then I halved those strips so I had two 8" x 1.5" strips for each scarf.  The final flannel dimensions that I came up with were 70" x 18" (which is folded in half so it's 70" x 9".).  Finished item is about 69" x 8" for the flannel part, and 71" x 8" overall.



They really only took about 30-40 minutes each (including the cutting and snap setting), so a pretty quick project overall!

10  Triangle Pouches in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by LovelyMiss on: December 07, 2016 06:09:21 AM
I woke up last night and couldn't go back to sleep, so I decided to be productive.  Almost six hours later I had these...






The tabs are the same as the liner fabric.








They will be part of my holiday "gift buffet" where people can take what they want.










There are two layers of interfacing, one light weight on the liner, and fusible fleece on the outer layer.  Everything was from stash...which is why I could make them in the middle of the night. Cheesy










I will need some coffee to get through work today, for sure. Cheesy  But they're cute, so it's fine. Grin
