PL week 38

I'm sharing my newest digital Project Life spread today. It's the release day for Splendid Fiin's October card and paper kit, and they are lovely (and 20% off this weekend!). I had fun using them on these pages.

Also, the Lilypad has an adorable new collaboration kit called #Selfie that is free with any $10 purchase. Go check it out!

Splendid Fiins Design Team

I'm thrilled to have been selected for the Splendid Fiins creative team! Nisa's designs are my favorite to use in my digital project life. She has an awesome team making layouts and Project Life spreads. I'll be sharing my Project Life pages here occasionally, but they're also on Flickr.

Sanibel shadow box

I started this project over a year ago. I had some Instagram prints made from our spring break trip to Sanibel Island, FL with the intention of displaying them in a frame.

Finally, some new pretties from Studio Calico + plus a little beachy bathroom redecorating inspired me to revisit the project.

I loved this little piece of flair designed by Kal Barteski and the gorgeous letterpress card by Lindsay Letters.

Done and hung up, yay!

Tea Party for big sister

I wanted to send a little something special for big sister when I sent the quilt, so I made some fabric tea bags for a play tea party. There are a few tutorials around, but I just winged it with some fabric scraps I had on had, and a piece of batting inside each tea bag to add a little weight. I stamped "TEA" onto a bag that I had received from a jewelry order, and ta da!

I had so much fun making these. I think there are more in my future!

Crinkle Quilt for baby V.

I made this quilt for a special new baby girl who lives in Colorado. I knew right away when I saw the Crinkle quilt pattern that I wanted to give it a try. It creates a very fun texture, and I loved playing with the Simply Style fabrics by V and Co. from Home Ec Workshop. I would say that it comes together very quickly for a baby quilt (even though it took me months from start to finish, ha ha!).

One detail I added was a little embroidered message on the quilt back. I plan to do this on all the quilts I make from now on. It is an easy, but special detail that marks the time and occasion for the quilt.

I hope I get to meet little V. in person sometime soon, but in the meantime, I'm happy to have added a little coziness to her nursery.
