Sewing Project.

So after seeing a tutorial by Cristi Burton over @ scrappin 5 little cupcakes on Made it Myself Mondays over @ youhadme@craft.com (both are awesome blogs you guys have to check out!). I decided to pull my sewing machine out and try again since I haven't done anything on it since the last sewing project http://divaof5.blogspot.com/2011/05/little-sewing.html. I like how it turned out and I had fun doing it and Tae'lor likes it so really that's all that matters but I am going to try and use my machine more because I am not 100% and I am sort of a perfectionist so EVERYTHING has to Perfect down to the last little detail.


Just like Cristi I started w/ a plain tanktop I bought from Walmart.

I cute some images out on my Cricut using the Create a Critter cartridge.
This is after my first layer of ruffle! Not to bad I guess and btw I followed Cristi's tutorial almost exactly it was really easy.

This is my final project! Like I said Tae'lor loves it and she keeps asking me can she wear it so that makes me feel GREAT! Once again go check Cristi out @ Scrappin 5 little cupcakes for the full tutorial on how to make this cute little tank/dress.

Quick Project!

I am just getting back from a SUPRISED FUN-FILLED BIRTHDAY WEEKEND, that my Darling Husband planned all for ME!! He is the BESTEST ever lol, although I am tired tired tired I wanted to put a quick project up here that I did on last week. The youth director @ my church was needing a box decorated to put out in the foyer for people to drop their donated school supplies in for the youth's Back 2 School Rally that they are having in a few weeks, She came to me and I jumped to the task! Here is what I came up with.



I  started off with the plain box of course lol. I then glued sheets of notebook paper to use as my background. I used the Locker Talk cart for ALL the images and cut them on the E2 @ the largest level that it would allow for each. My paper is from Recollections the 3.99 solid color packs @ Michael's and some other cool paper I found on the shelf also @ Michaels's. This project was really Simple and Fun but it took alot of time, but its for the kids so I am more than Happy to pitch in and do what I can do for the Building of God's Kingdom! Well for right now I'm going to get some rest and I will talk to all you GREAT Crafters in a day or 2!!

Baby Boy Card

Well Guys I think I'm getting the hang of it (and having fun in the process). I was invited to a baby shower over the weekend so I decided to try my luck @ another card. Tell me what you think.
                                            
I used Create a Critter cart for my turtle he was cut @ 3" on my Cricut E2. The cloud was cut also from CAC @ 2". My sentiment is from Michaels it was in the Dollar bin. I found the Ribbon @ Walmart (both) my background paper is from Recollections Pet Paper Pack.
                                      
I took the rest of my scrap paper and added a little pocket on the back for a gift card. The gift card ended up fitting perfectly inside.

                                     
Im actually Really PROUD of this card, so proud that I am going to enter it in over @ Alex's blog http://www.youhadmeatcraft.com/ for her Made it Myself Monday Linking Party!

Simply Sunday "Fashion-ista" Challenge.

Hey guys as you know I have been gone for quite sometime and it feels good to blog again! Since the hubby has been home it has been NONSTOP around here! Water parks,Traveling,Movies,on and on and on but I'm not complaining @ all its been a long time since we have been together as a family and I thank GOD for the Blessings that he bestows on us! Now I stopped by http://www.gettingcricky.com/ as I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog!! Kristal is so Amazing and such an inspiring person! When I am not in the best of moods I go 2 her blog because I know she will have a word of inspiration JUST FOR ME!! The challenge this week is to post a Fashionably Fun project by July 23rd @ http://www.gettingcricky.com/2011/07/simply-sunday-fashion-ista-challenge.html and here is mine...Now I warn you I have just started to dibble and dabble in card making so I am not a pro by a long shot but I will let you guys judge lol.


I used the Paper Doll Dress Up for the town, moon and star and Forever Young for the lipstick. For the sentiment I used Kristal's Stamp Set Fashionable Friends it says "Let's paint the town red". My husband has promised me a new camera for my upcoming birthday so hopefully my picture taking skills will get ALOT better.
