OK, it's been forever and a day since I posted anything. The last time I looked at my Blog it was a complete mess. It looked as though it had gone through a food processor then spilled out across the screen, no one knew how to fix it.

Now that it is looking normal again I'll upload some of my lasted projects.

Here's my first attempt at a Gatefold Mini Album. It had pictures taken at the 8th Grade Dance.

I made a second Mini Album of the Dance pictures and gave it to the guy's Mother.

The following is my very first Mini Album it was part of a Swap I was in.



I am currently working on another Mini Album. I will be posting it as soon I complete it. Thanks for stopping by to see what I have added

Hello Fellow Crafter's

I recently started back Machine Embroidering, I'm enjoying it once again. Last night I decided to stitch out a design by Anita Goodedesign. It's a Christmas Tree about 20 inches tall and all done in the hoop. I'll be making a couple move to give as gifts.

Past Projects

I thought I would share some pictures of my first few embroidery projects that I stitched after I bought my Bernina Embroidery Machine.

I'm thinking about stitching up a couple of Christmas Stockings next. I wish I could take a refresher course on machine embroidery, I'm so rusty.

The two shirts below were fun to do, I was so proud that the button hole designs lined up correctly.

The black stocking on the left is one of my favorites, I gave it to my friend's husband who's a Preacher. The one on the right I made for Kelly. They both were big hits.

This was my first attempt a stitching a free standing lace design on a pillow case.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
No it's not snowing. But I did get out my sewing machine and decided to stitch up some Lace Snow Flake Ornaments. This year I'll be including an ornament with each Christmas Card I send out.

I like to plan ahead, in this case I may be planning too far into the future. I made this card to give to the bride and groom when they get married next year (if they do....LOL). I know the embossing isn't wedding related but the Bride to be thought it was perfect for the occasion when she saw the box I up loaded on July 19th. I think the embossing showed up beautifully on the gold paper.
Let me know what you think.

I'm still in the Christmas Mood

Here's my Christmas milk carton I cut out on my Cricut. The embossed layer was done by using the center part of the Spellbinders Poinsettia Frameability Die on the Cuttlebug.
Here's two views of the milk carton:

Here's a gift box I made today. I used Spellbinders Poinsettia Frameability Die and my Cuttlebug. The poinsettia that is on the box lid, I made and cut it out on my Cricut. The yellow beads I made with hot glue and colored with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink. The tag was made with the center part of the Frameability die and the bottom layer of the tag was a scrap that was left over from the die.
Below are three views of the box:

Here's the Lid

Here's the picture of the other project that I mentioned in my previous post today. Seems like I'm on a roll. I don't think I have created so many new projects as I have the last few days in an extremely long time.
