Flowery T-shirts

Happy Monday, my crafties!

I'm still feeling good from the Classy Scrappers crop I attended on Saturday. We had a great time! My daughter, Kristen, ended up coming with me, which I always enjoy. There were also some new friends as well as some people I hadn't gotten to craft with for a while. My friend Sally brought her 13 yr old daughter, Julia, who was such a huge help and quite the crafter.

Maggie taught us all how to enhance a plain t-shirt with fabric flowers. Here's the shirt I made:

 The t-shirt was purchased from Wal-Mart. I really like the neckline and it wasn't too pricey (maybe $5).

Here's a close up....the green flower was made from fabric Maggie provided. The other flowers were from an old shirt I was going to throw away.

Plastic beads were added to the large green flower. The green dots around the blue flowers were created with Tulip paint. The flowers and beads were added using Beacon Fabric Tac glue.

Now, here's Kristen's shirt:

I love the way her's turned out! Her flower placement is great.

Everyone's t-shirt was different and turned out great. We cut the flowers using Sizzix flower dies and the Cuttlebug. Cutting fabric is so simple with dies, even the knit shirt material Kristen and I used for our flowers cut easily.

This is a fun craft that you can do with minimal supplies. And recycling old clothes is a great perk of this project. I would love to see any shirts you've made. Leave me a link to your blog if you have any you'd like to share.

See you soon,

Happy Sunday everyone! Today, my first project as a Crafty Chica Design Team member is featured over on the Chica's Getting Crafty blog.

I know a young couple who is in the process of purchasing their first home and this card will be making it's way to them with a housewarming gift in the near future.

Exciting News!

...for me that is! I have been asked to be a Design Team member over on the Passionately Artistic blog. If you haven't visited the blog in a while, or have never visited the blog, you should check it out. Maggie has a linking party going on over there and there are some amazing projects you will want to take a look at.

The pencil holder I made is actually an altered dog food can (don't worry, I cleaned it out thoroughly). Since we can never find a pencil in our house, I thought this would be a great "back to school" project for our home. I used one of my favorite materials - dictionary papers, and favorite elements - paper flowers, to spruce up this pencil holder and make it more my style. A bit of tulle and some beaded flourishes and this project was complete.  But you'll have to go the Passionately Artistic blog to take a peek!

I don't have a Design Team badge yet, but I have a link to the Passionately Artistic on the right side of my blog. Or, you can just follow this link Passionately Artistic.

Happy crafting!

Mini Album

Hello, all. It's been too long since I've posted. I made this mini album a few months ago and have been wanting to post it. It's the first mini album I've made and it was a lot of fun. I'm quite proud of how it turned out.
This album will be going to my goddaughter, Danielle, who is the subject of this album. My beautiful goddaughter is lucky enough to be going to school at University of Hawaii. She posts the most awesome photos on Facebook, and I decided to snatch a few for this little book. I also included a photo of my other beautiful nieces, Jennifer and Rebecca (Danielle's sisters), and MY beautiful sister Theresa, the mother of these wonderful girls. I am truly going to hate giving this little book up, but I will. And I'm glad I'm posting for all to see, and so I can look at it whenever I get the urge.
I made the bones of this book at a class given by my good friend Maggie Lamarre at one of the monthly crops she hosts at a local church (let me know if you are interested in attending). I must give her thanks for the lesson. The book was made with chipboard (I used cereal boxes for most of it) and I loved the creative feedom making my own book gave me. I will be doing more of these.
Finished size of this album is 6" X 6".
