Ruffle Notebook Cover Tutorial

*I was given fabric to participate in the This and That blog tour. All opinions and projects are my own. I love the florals in the main print of the This and That fabric line, but what I love even more, is the accent of black that runs throughout this line. It’s such a fun contrast to the bright colors. That element of contrast is what led me to create this ruffle notebook cover. The pleated ruffle on the front…

Scalloped skirt and floral garland with Lily fabric from Penny Rose

I am so excited to participate today on the Lily fabric tour for Penny Rose Fabrics.

Springtime Felt Flowers

It’s always this time of year when I start itching for warmer weather and sunshine.  We seem to always have a warm spell that gets our hopes up, which is quickly followed by colder weather and snow.  So, until spring gets here for real- I decided to create some sunshine of my own and make this fun springtime floral frame.  It’s just the right colors for my living room and it might just live in there all year round. These…

Flower Art Piece made with Cricut Explore- and a video

Today we’re going to discuss this art piece I created for my girls’ room.  I’m not going to lie- it took a bit of time and some playing around to get just the right feel.  I made a lot more flowers than I ended up using and adjusted the sizes of some, either before I cut them out- or by leaving out some of the petals to make it a bit smaller. The flowers come from a few different Image…
