OMG! Where can I get those patterns! Loves it! I told my last boyfriend I wished he had a pencil-thin mustache! I won't tell you what he said in return! LOL! I have never even heard that song! Also, your lettering looks awesome, like an old typewriter. Hope that was the look you are going for - it goes well with the mustaches!

This dress is inspirational! I love the combination of satin, cotton, and fur! Fun! What do you do with all your dresses? Do you sell them? of do you have an amazing closet full of amazing dresses?  Cheesy

This is AWESOME! I think I'm gonna do pillowcases for everyone for Christmas! My boyfriend and his brothers are all in a band - I'll do drums for him, and guitars for the others! Sweet!

You've inspired me!

Woohoo! More new patterns! Something to tide us over til the book comes out in October!
BTW, I keep my patterns in a 3-ring binder with plastic page protectors. Each "envelope" of patterns just slides into its own sleeve, then when they are cut apart, you can see what's in there really easily, and they don't seem to have any troubles bleeding or anything. On the cover of the notebook, I've cut out some pics of Jenny's work and slid them under there (it's one of those notebooks where you can put a page under the cover) for inspiration.

I have every pattern and duplicates of my favorites just in case... what? A national shortage of Sublime Stitching patterns? I am becoming a weird-o completist collector - there are patterns I've never used (Gothic Grandeur) but I have to have them anyway - just in case!

And yes, the elf is sneaky, but in a good way!

It's gorgeous! I love the "dicho" (saying) - my mom "collects" them and knows so many! And the colors rock and are so cool and "folklorico". I like that you used 6-strands and made the outlines stand out.

And don't tell me you freehanded the letters. I'll die.

Watch out, Aunt Martha! Here comes Jenny Hart! I am just picturing the milkmaids or whatever looking horrified when the Roller Derby gals and the Pin Ups n' Panthers crowd moves in next door on the shelf!  Hahaha!

This is EXCELLENT for a first effort! I thought the monkey pattern was a bit advanced - lots of small bits with the curved tail and paws (hands?). Your monkeys look great and the leaves too!

I think Mr. Onion (garlic?) is adorable! How many strands did you use for his features? I tried this pattern and used too many strands (all 6) for the features and Mr. Carrot turned out quite odd. I tore out all the stitches and started over with just 2 strands and that worked much better. But then, I was working on a terry bib (!) and that had it's own challenges...

Your sugar skull is rad too! I just noticed the rhinestones! Are they heat set, glued on or metal backed? Wow, I'm nosy tonight!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: New to scrapping - Question about paper inserts on: June 23, 2006 10:41:05 PM
Sorry this post is so late! I'm lazy too!
The Disney store is on Pleasure Island in Orlando, FL; I think it's called World of Memories or something. It's a stationary store that has albums, photo frames, books, stickers, coloring books, as well as their scrapping kits. I bought two of their scrapping kits, so I'm going to use the pages that came with that, as well as some neutral card stock as you suggested.

Yes, my book is EKSuccess, but the pages don't have holes; they are just page protectors (that have the holes) so I guess the company assumes that you will slide your completed pages in, but since I'm a newbie... that wasn't intuitive to me.

Last, I LOVE the CM books. I like that you can move the pages around and they are sturdy and easy to work with. You don't even have to use paper if you don't want to - you can just put the photos down and journal or use sitckers. They also sell page protectors for the CM books if you want to protect photos or use embellishments. A good friend at work is a CM rep, and she got me started, so maybe I am biased??? Their stuff is really top-notch.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

OMG! I am SO BOOKMARKING THIS! The last time my boyfriend went on the road (he's also a musician), I brought out his pillow, and he was like, "UMmmm, do we have anything less GIRLIE"? He was mortified in front of the guys, but I thought it was funny. It was a choice between pink, and rose, and pink and rose flowers.

I'm guessing he deserves a nice rock and roll pillowcase out of this one!
