A few projects

Sage and I got crafty yesterday and wanted to share our projects with you today...

First up, Sage & I made a cover for her Bible, using some pink polar fleece. We diecut some PTI felt (autumn rose, scarlet jewel, hibiscus burst) using PTI dies (mat stack 4, headline alphabet, heart prints). We also diecut a LL:Squares with autumn rose felt to make a pinwheel for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Handmade Pinwheels.

In addition to the Bible cover, I made a layout and a card for a colour challenge at Love is in the Details:

Isn't it gorgeous? I loved it so much, that I after making a layout for it, I pulled out my new PTI stamp set (Cutting Garden) and played around with this colour combo.

First, here's my layout. I found some strips of patterned paper scraps in my scrap file and sewed them to my background (The grey polka dot and orange herringbone papers are My Mind's Eye, the pink floral and striped papers are Crate Paper and the blue is Echo Park.) Then, I added my photo, title (a mix of PTI Headline dies, Wonderful Words Additions stamps and a cut file that I cut using my Silhouette Portrait). Lastly, I inked up a bunch of Pink Paislee mistable hearts and adhered them to my layout.

And here's the card I made using Cutting Garden:

Thanks for looking!

Loving the Sage and Leigh team! Beautiful! Leigh, your card is gorgeous. Patiently (not!) waiting for my new stamps.

Linda Nicholson said...'re fast! I haven't even been able to put my new stamps away yet! Gorgeous card and layout and Sage's bible cover is darling!


PS - You need a Pin It button on your blog! Hint hint!

I also just thought of a question for you. I love how you use the negative die cuts on your layouts and cards. What tips do you have to line up everything so evenly as well as space so evenly?

Great projects Leigh! I like the idea of kids names in Felt. I was a little bummed that my PTI order arrived yesterday as I was packing to leave on vacation. Am already anxious to get home to play with those alpha dies!

Such a sweet layout Leigh, makes me happy just looking at it! Lovely colours on your card too!
