My Favorite Things–Wednesday Sketch #429!


Hello friends!





I’m back today to share a project that was inspired by this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  This week’s sketch offers tons of opportunity to get creative, and I certainly had fun creating with it!  Here’s this week’s sketch:





And here’s my project:





I used the Mod Rectangle STAX Die-Namics and the Mod Square STAX Die-Namics to take the place of the triangles in the sketch, and I masked off the spaces on the card base and ink blended them with some rainbow distress inks.  The sentiment and rainbow and hearts are from the Rainbows & Unicorns Stamp Set.

That’s it for me today, friends!  We’ve got lots of stuff going on at our house – my middle grandson and son-in-law arrive today for a quick visit, and we’re in the middle of a master bath remodel!  So yeah – things are a little chaotic around here!  But I’ll be back very soon with more crafty stuff, so I hope you’ll stop by for another visit real soon!

Stitched With Love–Cross-Stitch Tag Ideas!


Hello friends!





I’m back again today with a super fun project!! We’re playing with the Cross-Stitch Tag Die-Namics and Scallop Cross-Stitch Tag Die-Namics!!  They pair together perfectly, and are so much fun to make!












I spent the weekend with some of my amazingly talented crafty friends recently, and these were the perfect projects to work on!  But in the past, I’ve made them while watching TV or riding in the car!  I love making these tags, and I love seeing the looks of appreciation on the faces of those that receive them!  Today’s project features four of the 12 Cross-Stitch Tag Die-Namics patterns that can be found in the Printable Resources section of the MFT Design Blog.  I wanted to make up some tags that would complement the adorable Mini Grow Pots that I found at Target in the Dollar Spot!  I thought they’d be fun for May Day, or just a little “pick me up” for your favorite gardener.  I used the Love Bugs Stamp Set to add bug-themed sentiments on each tag.  I’ve listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.


This is the first of three days of a “Stitched With Love” series on the MFT Design Blog.  Be sure and check out the other projects created for today, and the next two days!  And I’m sure you’ll be as inspired as I was with the new patterns that are included in the Printable Resources section!  All of the hard work is done for you!  BONUS!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be back again soon with more crafty goodness to share with you!  Until then, have an awesome day!

And here's my project:

My Favorite Things–MFT & Friends March Release!


Hello my loves!





I’m back with one last project for this month’s MFT & Friends post!  Today’s project features the new Fresh-Cut Flowers Background Stamp and the new Anything-But-Basic Encouragement Stamp Set.  Both of these amazing stamp sets are awesome and will be used by me over and over again!





I stamped the Fresh-Cut Flowers Background Stamp onto two Smooth White image panels using VersaMark, and then heat embossed them both with silver embossing powder.  I die cut one of the image panels using the domed fishtail tag from the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-Namics, and colored some of the images using my Copic markers.  I positioned the colored tag on top of the other image panel, aligning both images, and adhered the tag with foam squares.  I stamped the sentiment from the Anything-But-Basic Encouragement Stamp Set onto some Sour Apple Card Stock using Versamark ink, die cut it using the folded banner die from the Tag Builder Blueprints 7 Die-Namics.  I’ve listed and linked all of the MFT products below.  And, of course, ALL of the March Release products are available for purchase in the MFT Online Boutique now!!  You can find them all by clicking on the graphic below.

That’s it for me today, friends!! I’ve got some errands to run, and a few more projects to create, so I’ll be busy, busy, busy!  I hope you have an awesome day, and that you’ll stop by again tomorrow to check out the project that I created for this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge!
