The days of making quilts are gone for me - but it's fun putting paper ones together....Quilts was the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I've used the Floral Districts DSP for the flowers in the middle of each square. The squares were mounted on white card stock before being cut with the Top Note Die and then embossed with the Fancy Fan Folder. I'm not sure about the two random strips of ribbon - but that's where I went.
I also finished off a Mini Album using the Serene Silhouette set. I used a tutorial from the 2012-13 New Catalogue Edition from Create with Connie and Mary. I had to make a few adjustments because I didn't have everything that was used in the tutorial.
My cover is pretty much the same. I didn't have a coiling machine so I used ribbons to join all the pages together.
I don't have the English Ivy Simple Sentiments stationary - so I used the flourish from Creative Elements on Very Vanilla card stock for the pieces that used the stationary.
Of course, since I didn't have the stationary - I didn't have the envelopes with the fancy insides or the fancy edges. So, I "cut" off the envelope glue off a regular Vanilla envelope using one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.
I also chose to use the Finishing Touches Edgelit for some of the parts instead of the scallop border punch.
I like the final results.....now I just have to decide who to give it to. I must commend this group of women who create things for the tutorials. The steps are always straight forward and easy to follow. And they are such an inspiration!
Hope you are finding inspiration in your life today. Thanks for stopping by. Only three days left of school....whooooohooooo!!!!!
