Cuddle Quilt

This is a quilt kit I purchased from Flying Goose Quilt Shop in New London, MN during the Willmar Country Quilters Quilt Show in September 2011. All the fabrics are cuddle fabric and super soft and cozy. The strips were all precut when I purchased the kit, and it tells you how to do the sew and flip method of quilting, so you sew all three layers of your quilt sandwich at the same time. I had this project done in one weekend and use it every day when I sit in my livingroom to watch TV.

Jaycee Memories - My T-shirt Quilt

It has been a very long time since I have posted anything here. It's not that I haven't been crafting, I just have had so many irons in the fire! Between scrapbooking, quilting, photography and my everyday life, there just isn't enough time to do it all. I promised last year to post a photo of this t-shirt quilt I was working on. I finally finished it in March 2011, hand quilting and all. So here's the final quilt. I didn't photograph the back, but it is a small, blue floral flannel fabric. It is a very warm quilt.

Graduation Album

I have been working on my daughter's graduation album for a few months now and have finally finsihed it. I will be ordering Creative Memories StoryBooks for this album, as I want a copy for myself and my daughter, and there could be others who want a copy too. I have posted a few of the pages so you can see the end result.

I used her favorite color, purple, as the main color for the album. I designed it in StoryBook Creator Plus 3.0 as a 12 x 12 book but decided that it looks just as good as an 8 x 8, so that is the size I will be ordering. I really enjoy digital scrapbooking in addition to traditional paper crafts. Each has its positive aspects and works well for certain purposes.

This is a project I will be doing with vinyl, eventually. I did a test with paper just so I could get an idea on what sizes I wanted each word. It will go above our entry door. We currently have an old fabric sign with the word "witamy", which is Polish for welcome, and no one knows what it means, so I used some other languages for welcome. Now I just need to find some time to cut it all out in vinyl and get it on the wall!

Rylynn's Polka Dots

This is a page I did of my friend's little cutie, Rylynn. I had the scallop/polka dotted paper in my stash and mounted it on a sheet of butter yellow that coordinated nicely with her outfit. The tag with ribbon is Creative Memories Tag Maker, which I sanded the edges of to give it a little contrast. She's a little doll!

This is a page I did of my nephew Kalib. I used Street Sign Cricut cartridge for his name, and the striped circles were punched with my CM Circle Maker. The 3 layered circle on the ribbon was cut with the CM Cutting System Circle Makers, as the sizes of those were slightly larger than my shape maker punch could do. I still need to do my journaling on this page, but I like the end result.
