This blog is dedicated totally to my cards, sewing projects and beaded jewelry that I just love to make. I hope you enjoy them too! It would be great to hear from you too, so leave a comment if you would like.
I made this quilt for my daughter. She absolutely loves her quilt! She even picked out the colors! She drags it all over the house with her and has to sleep with it every night. I followed the pattern by Me and My Sister Designs and it's called Ten Cents.
This was a great challenge for me! I used paper from DCWV The Cardstock Stack and DCWV The Stack 6. The image is called MLSMflowers from Bugaboo. I used my Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cartridge to cut out the oval. The buttons and brad embellishments came from Hobby Lobby. I used my Crayola Super Tip Washable Markers to color the image. You've got to love Crayola! Thanks for the wonderful challenge!
This card was really fun to make. The image came from a stamp that my mom had given me. I have no idea where it came from. I used my Prismacolor soft lead pencils to color the image. I hope you like it!
Due to budget cuts, our small school of ten teachers is losing three! I wanted to do some thing special for them, so I made these pillows for them. I really hope they love them and that they bring them special memories!
My boss is retiring and I really wanted to do something special for her. My sister and I designed the quilt. I used T-shirt iron on transfers for the pictures. You have to make sure that when you print them, that the printer is set to print it as a mirror image, otherwise you will have a picture backwards when it is ironed on. We ironed on each picture and then sewed all the blocks together. The letters on the header and footer were cut out by my Cricut and I used the Disney font cartridge. I used wonder under to iron them on (make sure you iron the wonder under on the fabric before you use the Cricut to cut them out) and then sewed around each letter. It was a lot of sewing but I was able to get it done in two weekends. Let me just say my boss absolutely loved it!
My name is Erika and I am a mother and an elementary school teacher. I love scrapbooking and card making. Making jewelry has also been fun. I grew up in a home where my mom was always making things for us, dresses, dolls, stuffed animals and such. I loved it. I tried to learn some things but it was difficult because I am left handed and my mom is right handed. Needless to say, I left home without knowing how to do some really cool things. It wasn't until I was pregnant with my daughter that I really wanted to make the effort to learn. I learned how to sew and do some other fun crafts. Thank goodness my mom is the craft queen of the world because I have been able to go to her and ask her for help. She is my best example and my best friend. Plus, she made me start this blog...so here I am.
