Modern Yardage!

I just stumbled on a new fabric company by the name of Modern Yardage. They print their own fabrics to order on high quality cotton using water based textile pigments. They have beautiful designs, I can't wait to play with some of these! Check them out at Or follow them on Pinterest!

P.S. Credit goes to Sew Fearless for the awesome picture showing how the fabric is printed.

Happy Birthday to My Son!

Here is a card for my son who turned 19 recently. He loves the Oregon Ducks so I made it in the school colors. Rather simple, but masculine cards are pretty hard to add a lot of embellishments to! This is my recent creation for my "Use Every Stamp" challenge over on the Use Every Stamp blog sponsored by My Creative Classroom.

A Baby Card This Time

Another project for my Use Every Stamp 2013 challenge! My niece recently had a baby so this card is for her. The tags were made with Papertrey Ink Tiny Tags dies. I stamped the tags with images from Papertrey Ink's Boy Basics-Simple Circles and a small flower background set that I not sure who made. The stamps I used are from Just the Ticket by Papertrey Ink. My inspiration came from a long ago post by Ashley Cannon Newell - check out her blog, she rocks!

Finally...a new post!

I am way behind in posting projects, that's for sure. I blew right past 2012 and into 2013! I am participating in Use Every Stamp 2013 sponsored by My Creative Classroom, and this is one of my projects using two stamps from my collection. This is a glassine bag containing goodies for my husband for Valentine's. The two stamps are from long ago, I don't know the xo manufacturer. February was stamped with a roller letter stamp from Provocraft. Wow, two down, a bazillion to go! Check out My Creative Classroom, they have awesome classes at very affordable prices!

4th of July Dress and T-Shirt for Kids

I made a dress for my granddaughter and appliqued a t-shirt with a "firecracker" for my grandson so they can celebrate the 4th in style! My sewing machine is going to the shop this week, I had to coax these two projects out of it, so the stitching is quite quirky, to say the least. I posted the back of the dress first, I love the big white buttons!
And the front of the dress, the color is a bit off in the picture:
My grandson's name is Tyler, hence the "T" on his t-shirt (so many t's-tee-hee!)
Happy Birthday America!
