Nora in her Smocked Dress

I've been babysitting my granddaughter, Nora, this week. My neighbor smocked the dress and tatted the lace for it also! Nora looks like a little princess!

Mason Jar Mini Album

Made this mini album for my neighbor with Diemond Dies Large Mason Jar die.  She can put a picture of each of her 13 grandchildren in a frame and journal something about each child on the back of the photo mat.  Really enjoyed putting this together.

Nora's First Braves Game

Nora got to go to her first Braves game at 4 1/2 months old - so Grandma had to scrap that memory!! I used my new Cricut Explore for everything except the title, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"  which is a Silhouette image.

Mother Goose Paper Bag Mini Album

WOW!  It has definitely been a while since I posted on this blog!  Life happens!  Been busy with our new granddaughter, family visiting, our son has been home for the summer, the list goes on!  But I did find time to scrap through all this!  I made this Mother Goose Paper Bag Mini Album using MySistersscrapper method, Graphic 45's Mother Goose Paper and the Cricut Nursery Rhyme Cartridge.  Great fun - this was one of my favorite books as a child. The album is listed on my etsy store -
Front Cover
Each page has a flap, pocket & photo mat in each paper bag
Goosey, Goosey, Gander
Little Bo Peep
Rain, Rain Go Away
The  Cow Jumped Over the Moon
I used the Teapot Image for a journal card and added a waterfall element

Holiday Glass Blocks

I had such fun making those glass blocks for Christmas and my sister- in-law ordered 6 more from me for other holidays.

I used my Cricut Expression and my Silhouette Cameo to cut the vinyl.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Glass Blocks

Every year, I make a little something for my  husband to take to his staff at Christmas.  This year, I decided to make decorated glass blocks with vinyl and the Teresa Collins December 25th Cricut Cartridge.  This is what they look like (front and back):
 And this is the glass block (front and back) I am giving my sweet neighbor - I made this with my Silhouette Cameo:

I think they turned out really pretty if I must say so myself!  LOL!

Custom ordered apron

Things are getting busy in my craft room! I have an order for four aprons- I will post pictures of those when they are done. I'm also going to be sewing a crib skirt and basket liners for my first grandchild due in February.

This is a picture of a custom ordered apron I made for my sister-in-law who is a cat lover. I used a Simplicity pattern and a patterned fabric with cats. I think she is going to love it!
