I LOVE the fabric paper....

that Love, Elsie does!!! It's so great for adding a whole other dimension of texture to a project. And it also looks really cute to kind of fray out the edges, sew on it, etc.

This is just a quick card I made for my sister's birthday... I had to do something with this fabric paper! That cute little cupcake was cut out of some Luxe Designs paper and colored with watercolor pencils. I also really love the shape of this card... it's sort of a tri-fold card, just with one side longer and rounded.

Also, this is another card I made a few weeks ago... used some Making Memories 5th Avenue paper... This one was really fun to do. I cut those little flower like shapes out of some of the paper (6 of them), then cut about half way down in each crease so it could curl up a little. The stitching on this was fun too. And I love the little felt butterfly- Target in the dollar section!

Just had to share...

I was looking on flickr at craft rooms, when I stumbled across this. This room is sooooo saturated in color... it's beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen so many bright colors, and it still all works together. I absolutely love the orange on the walls! :)

I can't seem to get a few of the pictures on here... so I guess you'll have to go look- it's definitely worth it!

Challenge of the week..

...over at BBTB. We had to use the mug cut off of Christmas Cheer. I thought for a long time about how to use this and not make the card look too wintery, then I remembered this quote! I really had a lot of fun with this background... I was looking around on Two Peas the other day when I found this page, and I absolutely LOVED the background, so I had to use the same concept on a card. It was very time-consuming to cut apart, sew, and distress the edges of each little piece of this, but it turned out wonderful! Also, I got to get a few pieces of the beautiful Pink Paislee stuff the other day, and I love it!
