Just for...You

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday!
WOW! Thursday already?? I'm not complaining at all but this week sure flew by so fast.  I guess that  could be since my days start at 5:30am for work and the everyday routine after work which is usually getting home about 5:30 pm to get ready for my daily run, dinner and of course my craft time.  Just sharing a little with you all on my daily stuff:)

Ok now let's get to my card for today! I started with a sketch from Pattern Cards Challenge and the colors from Dynamic Duos Challenge.  I must say using these colors was definitely a challenge for me only because every idea I would come up with would of course have bright colors.  I finally decided to use the Tea Shopp stamp set for both challenges and everything fell is place.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you get a tiny bit inspired by my card today!!
A close up of my card showcasing those adorable tea cups with the added embellies.

I would normally not put these colors together but, I really do like the way the card looks with these colors! I really LOVE the Delicate Dollies die on the card.  I used our Bitty Banners Framelits Die to stamp the sentiment from Tea Shoppe.

Designer Fabric Makeup Bags and a Card

Happy Friday my friends,
I'm so excited for the weekend we have a couple of birthday parties to attend and maybe catch a movie!!  I hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend!!

Today, I have a couple of projects using Stampin' Up! Designer Fabric and a card for my sister.  I'm most excited about sharing my FIRST SEWING projects , these adorable makeup bags!!!

I've been really inspired to learn to sew more from my new bloggie friend Daryl over at Patchouli-Moon Studio her sewing skills are AMAZING!! The Stampin' Up! Designer Fabrics come in  18 X 27 (fat quarters) and you get 3 different designs for ONLY $9.95

OK, so let's get to the projects:) The red bag will go to one of my sister's along with the card below!! She loves RED so, I hope she likes it:) The black one is for me and I will definitely be making some more.. Thank you for stopping by today!!!
I used the Forever Young Stamp Set and embossed the tiny frame and stamped the image in Cherry Cobbler.  The sentiment is a retired stamp set but you can certainly substitute it for one of your own. The sister sentiment is from our current Family Reunion stamp set.  The Oval Accent Clear Die was used to cut the lovely top shape in Whisper White.

The red bag can fit your brushes or any makeup items you would like to put inside.  The black one is a little smaller and higher in height.  I added the retired Stampin' Up! Charms on the zipper for a little glam!!
In the inside of the bags I added some 4 gauge clear vinyl that I got at Joann's and attached another piece of fabric for the inside. I also added my made by stamp in the inside which can be hard to see on these photos.  Love how they turned out.  I have to make more for my other sister and nieces!!
A closer look at the inside on this bag with another piece of fabric and the clear vinyl inside.  You can see a video I followed  HERE on how to make these adorable makeup bags.
