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!!
