I'm having so much fun stitching this piece and she's going quickly. I need to slow down a little because I didn't have the beads I needed for her and just ordered them this week. I'm afraid I will have to put her away soon and wait for my order to arrive.
It's been 6 months or more since I put a single stitch into my many Cross Stitch projects. So I decided last week to try again. I love stitching and have been doing it for 25 years. Instead of picking up one that I had been working on I decided I needed a fresh start so I chose Nora Corbett's Lilly of the Valley Pixie (my birthday flower). Here's what I have done so far, I'm afraid I don't know the name of the fabric.
Welcome to our July Blog Hop featuring Summer Albums. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do. By leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here, as this is a circular. If you came from Terry Ann then you are in the right place!
I used the Jubilee paper pack, Cashmere cardstock, Cashmere ink, Tropical Bakers Twine, and the Rosewood Mini-Medley. The title was cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.
This is the front cover
This shows it opened up, under each flap is a pocket for a card on which you can add a picture. You could also add pictures to the front of the left and right pocket. On the front of the middle pocket is a pocket for a mini card.
This is the back which has two more mini pockets to hold full sized cards.
Finally, this is a picture showing the flaps up and the card held inside. Just to let you know, I've only added a couple of pictures because I will be adding more from our summer activities in August.
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, as she has the complete blog list.
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring alternative uses for Picture My Life cards. So mark August 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
I'm such a terrible blogger. If I can only manage one post every 6 months my life must be so boring or so busy, I think I'll stick with the busy excuse. I'm resolving to post here more often and especially to use it to show my artwork. In that line I'm planning to take part in the CTMH Cross Canada Blog Hop on the 15th so please come by and check out my blog and all the other creative Canadian Consultants taking part.
I'll end with a recent picture of Aaron, taken on July 1st while on our trip to Bell Island.
