Color Combos & Sew Cute Things

If you don't know already Simply Scrapping Crafts has closed it's site and it was so sad to see it go.  Judy (the owner of the site) was a really sweet lady but had a myriad of problems concerning her health and was unable to keep up with the daunting task of running such a huge site.  It was a sad day for many of us but upward an onward we go.

You know the say that when one door closes another one opens and so I am excited to say that another site has been developed by two of the former DT Stars at Simply Scrapping Crafts, Angie and Doris.  These ladies are fantastic and I am so thrilled to be working with them again.  The new site Crafting By Designs is small right now but we're just getting started, but it is generating much creativity already.  We had a beautiful color combo challenge that I would like to share with you today.

We needed to choose at least two colors from the picture to create a card inspiration.

 Here is my take on the color combo

If you take look at the color combo picture that was given for inspiration, I chose to use the colors from the striped pillow cushions.  I used the white, light blues, light tans & cream colors.

Next I'd like to share some of my sewing creations.  I am really excited about these creations.  I wanted to find some beautiful materials so I went to Memories by The Yard.  I rarely go in there because I am not a seamstress and frankly I am quite intimidated.  It's like going to French restaurant in France and not knowing the language and you don't have a clue as to what to order.  Well that would be my analogy for going into a specialty fabric shop...I DON"T SPEAK THE LANGUAGE!!!!  Anyway I managed not embarrass myself and bought a fat quarter of material ( yes I learned the term fat quarter.)  Here are the little pillows I made with the material:

Lastly I want to share a purse that I learned how to make from a tutorial on Angie Juda's site called Chic'n Scratch.  You can click the link and it will take you directly the tutorial.  She is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and she does amazing projects.  Remember I am not a seamstress but I followed her tutorial step by step and look what I created!!

Well That's all for now folks!!  Until next time I pray that you will be richly Blessed!!!


  1. I love your card. Makes me feel like I'm at the beach and relaxing, enjoying the sun. I also adore your pillows. Great work on those.

  2. All of your projects are so wonderful! Thank you for your lovely comments on the Crafting By Designs site. -Yvette
