DIY Nautical Tote Bag for National Craft Month with Free Anchor Pattern (PDF)

Hello everyone! Did you know that March is National Craft Month?  I’m very excited to share this DIY Nautical Tote Bag as part of the Jo-Ann Fabric And Craft Stores® National Craft Month campaign. I am one of the crafters selected to share our love for crafting and highlight the latest spring trends. Jo-Ann makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a spring crafting inspiration website. Since we’ve been having bright sunshine days here in Arizona, it was easy for me to take on the Nautical trend. I always try to include something new when creating for Jo-Ann. And for today’s project, I’m playing with Fabric Transfer Ink!

Dimensional Lucky Clover with Free PDF Template Pattern

Hello everyone! I’m sharing a Lucky Clover Door Hanger on Pebbles  Blog today and thought it would be fun to share how I made the 4-leaf clover here! My project was for St. Patrick’s Day until I found out that Shamrocks and 4-leaf clovers are different… Did you know that? I was totally inspired by the Buttflies from Pebbles Garden Party collection! It was harder than I thought to create the look, but now we have a template pattern to make our lives easier! How to Make the Lucky Clover 1. Download template: http://cl.ly/2s1G3m3M272f, print and cutout as indicated. 2. Trim paper to 3-1/2″W x 7″L, score every 1/4″ widthwise.

Happy Hearts Wall Decoration for Valentine’s Day (Cloud Pattern in PDF and .studio)

Hello everyone! I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day decoration on Pebbles Blog today and thought it would be fun to share more step photos and a free pattern here. I picked a few of my favorite patterns from Pebbles Yours Truly collection and die cut a bunch hearts in various sizes. I used a set of nesting dies but you can also hand drew your own. I hand drew a cloud on the grid paper to be my base panel. I’ve made it into a pattern that you can download at the end of this post.

A Paper Crafted Christmas – Free Templates for 3D Reindeer, Trees and Star (.pdf) & A Coupon

Hello everyone! It is finally December! Have you started your holiday crafting? I’m sharing a fun & easy Christmas craft project today! This post is part of the Papercrafted Christmas campaign co-hosted by Jo-Ann and Die Cuts With a View (DCWV). All products used (except the templates) were found and bought at Jo-Ann. I received compensation in craft supplies for this post; however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience. All products used were my personal choice. Thank you Jo-Ann and DCWV!  Isn’t Christmas the best occasion to craft with kids, decorate the house and enjoy some quality family binding time? I’m sharing a couple of good old PDF templates! Even a 4-year-old can help trace the templates, or hold the paper together while waiting for the glue to dry, right? This reindeer is my new favorite! I was inspired by a LEGO deer and had so much fun drawing and testing the template! […]

Just Awesome Card & A Sketch for AEI♥U October Challenge

Hello everyone! It’s time for another AEI♥U Challenge.  We have a sketch for this month! Follow it as closely or loosely as you want but do remember to use at least one Avery Elle product. The winner will be Avery Elle’s guest designer for November! Details here! And here is my take: I used the new Silver Fox cardstock for my cardbase. It compliments the greys on my patterned paper very well. And as you can see on the card, white gel pen marks show up nicely. It is a great basic cardbase color besides white/kraft. The green sequins are from the new Evergreen Blend Premium Sequin Pack. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
