Good afternoon gals (and guys),
Welcome to 3 new followers. Happy to have you here.
Well, what have I done this week….hmmmmmm let me see.
I finished up another Hardanger trinket box and pin cushion. This one is called “Pansy”. I wasn’t sure about the colors but I followed the instructions and now I really like it. I added some seed beads to the flower centers and a thread bow. This is a larger box, measuring about 5″ x 6.5″. This is what the inside looks like. I cushion it with a lining of felt.
Next are Valentine’s Day gifts for my granddaughter to bring to pre-school. I got the idea from Pinterest and just changed it up a bit to fit my needs. Each bag has a treat size bag of gold fish. They came out cute, didn’t they.
FROM PINTEREST MINE
Also this week, I took a challenge from my card making group. This month the theme was geometric.
Here is the pattern I used. It actually is a pattern for string art but it converted to embroidery on paper very nicely.
And here is the card I made from the pattern. I used bright variegated thread to embroider the spiral and printed out an optical illusion background.
I also found on Pinterest (thanks Sue Madex) this cute name card and thought it would be great for all the birthday cards that I needed to make for 2017. In all, I made up 31 of these name cards. I used my Scan N Cut to die cut the message names. Once I set it up, all I needed to do was change the name for each card. Easy peasy.
These are only some of my cards, way too many to show.
I’ll end with one more birthday card, an inlaid version of a ballerina I found on Pinterest.
This is my version. I made a black and white copy, scanned it into my computer, converted to a cut file and used my SNC. It cut perfectly. I added some teeny, tiny gold waste dots to create an interesting background and also applied a gold border.
I think that’s about it for this week. Oh, one more thing. My granddaughters gave me a heart filled with candy for Valentine’s Day.
Here’s a pic of the front of the heart box.
And this is the back of the box. What’s wrong with this???? Who on earth would give a box of candy with this message to a 3 year old child LOL LOL LOL. Gotta love the marketing industry!
See you all again next week.
