No, I'm not ready for snow, but it did really feel like winter after making my project for the Papertrey Ink Guest Star Stamper Contest. I really like how it all came together. My Mom helped me out a bit on the sewing part......I can sew, but with 2 kids, a very tiny stamp room.....it's just easier this way, plus she is a lot quicker! This project is very quick and easy to make. The pillow cover was inspired by a Woman's Day magazine called "Best Ideas for Christmas" It is full of ideas and the one that I really liked were the pillow covers. I thought these would be perfect in my living room.
I used PTI's set, Snowflake Seranade, for all of my creations. The pillow is just made out of muslin and are two square panels sewed with a 1/4" seam along the edges and has ribbon attached to the corners to tie to the pillow......super easy and quick! The picture frame is actually a great bargain that I got last year at Hobby Lobby after Christmas. They are just kraft colored and were regulary $4.99 each. I picked each one up for around $1.00.....I took all they had :-) The little goody bag is made out of muslin too.....my idea was for cookies or another treat, but this would make a perfect wine bottle bag! Hope you enjoy my creations.......I sure had fun making them!
My card......how much simpler can this be to make. I love it though!! The rhinestones add some bling too. This took less than a couple minutes to make!
This little goody bag is probably the perfect little gift, especially for school teachers or just something to have on hand in case you need a quick gift on the go! I really like the idea of having them to cover up a bottle of wine too. It helps that I live less than a half mile from a winery!!!
My picture frame has my favorite picture of the year........our Christmas photo of my kids riding our little burrow! I just love this picture.....I'm going to have it framed everywhere! I took some really neat pictures of the kids this weekend too, check out my new title bar.....I think this is my new favorite photo of the year! They were having a ball walking/dancing around the winery on Saturday. What a perfect day!
A HUGE thank you to Lauren Meader too! Check out her latest blog entry.......see those fabulous cards. Well, these will be in a collection of cards to be auctioned off at my son's benefit in November in the silent auction. They are pretty online, but are georgeous in person! THANK YOU!!!
