11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Beach Towel Roll Up on: July 17, 2013 04:53:40 PM
I saw a couple different versions of these floating around on Pinterest, so when my friend and I planned a beach trip, I knew I wanted to give it a shot. I ended up not following any tutorial, just because I didnt like the ones I found. The closures gave me the hardest time, I ended up using velcro. Also, the pillow is removable to make washing easier.

At the beach!

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Stamped Notecards on: June 08, 2013 07:56:39 PM
I've been having fun with my paper supplies again! Made these notecards for the recent IYP swap. I liked the bicycle ones better, but the hubster liked the bird ones better. Now I want to get some more stamps! Cheesy

When I saw this fabric at my local quilt shop, I knew right away that I needed to make one of these. I think it was a 3" frame. Of course I had to get the coordinating keys fabric for the lining! Grin

Made this one for my pal Calabaza for the latest IYP. We both actually had this pattern pinned, so of course I had to give it a go! I went for a starry/sky theme, and there a couple small pockets inside. I didnt have any hardware, so the handle is just sewn into the seam. Now I need one for myself! Wink

These are quick and fun! Trace a puzzle piece onto some scrapbook paper, embellish with stickers, markers, etc., and add a magnet to the back. Easy peasy!

16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Simple Carved Stamps on: June 08, 2013 07:36:35 PM
I had an experimental go at some basic carved stamps. They are carved from an eraser using an exacto knife. I wanted to try a paw print, and after finishing that, decided to do a fun chevron style. I made some tags to try them out.

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ballerina MAQ on: June 08, 2013 07:32:11 PM
This was for the recent IYP swap...and I LOVE it. I wanted to try to make something that had a scrappy/mixed media/vintagey feel to it. I saw an image of a ballerina on my partner's Pinterest, and she had somewhere that she liked flowers, so I got the idea of all these different flowers flowing from a ballerina's hand. It took a few tries of getting her printed on the fabric before getting one that didn't wrinkle/jam in the printer. I love using the scraps to make a larger piece of fabric, and I chose muted tones to get that vintagey feel, plus so the colors from the flowers could pop. I wished I could have added a few more bits to acheive the mixed media vibe (I just have fabric, paper, and buttons) but I was so afraid to paint or do something that I couldnt take back. All in all, I was really excited with how it turned out.

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / TM Style Bag on: June 08, 2013 07:22:12 PM
I finally got around to having a go at one of these bags when one of my partners and I decided to swap one for part of our IYP package. It is lined and has an elastic/button closure (as I wasnt too sure about how to hand sew a zipper in Roll Eyes). I had a lot of fun making it, and many thanks to sheepBlue for all the helpful tips on her blog! Wink

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Upcycled denim coasters on: June 08, 2013 07:16:36 PM
I've been wanting to do an upcycled denim project for a while now, and after going through my Denim Ideas Pinterest board, I decided to give this tutorial a go. I sent them out in a swap, but I really want to make a set for myself now. There are so many options when it come to coordinating shades, shapes, etc. I was really happy with how they turned out!

20  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Simple Stamped Stationary on: June 01, 2013 08:08:20 PM
I had all my paper crafting supplies out recently, and decided to make myself some notecards and tags for swap packages. I used some hand carved tiny house stamps from my pals Calabaza and FeliciaSlayDCRG, some coordinating cardstock, and some scrap ribbon. I'm pleased with how they turned out and can't wait to use them in my packages! Smiley
