"In the Wild" Precious Piecing DT Challenge

This week at Precious Piecing was to use a patterned animal print in our designs. I loved this as I had a whole pack of animal print papers that I had never used before. So, I took pattern #505 Circus Lion and made this really cute title piece. The circus lion turned out adorable. I am soooo happy with the way he turned out, he is perfect. I also used a Pink by Design stamp that says, "Rawr means I love you". It fit perfectly with my little circus lion.


Title piecing measures approx., 5 inches x 5 1/2 inches.

Blue Beauty Butterfly Tear Bear

I'm so excited to share this creation with you. I think Precious Piecings has the best patterns to make tear bears with. They are so easy to use. Being in love with spring this year I decided to make a butterfly. Who doesn't love a butterfly? Butterflies are such amazing creations of beauty.


I used Precious Piecing pattern #032 Large Butterfly. Using the pattern I layered the mulberry accordingly. As always my creations are made with extra thick, acid/lignin free mulberry paper.


Thanks for dropping in and I can't wait to share more with you this week!!

Blessings.

Spring has sprung!

The object of this weeks challenge was to create something Springy! I just love Spring, it's one of my favorite times of the year besides fall.


What better way to celebrate spring than with bunnies and duckies. So ...I used Precious Piecings patterns and came up with a border. Patterns used were #773 Big Bunny Peeker and #775 Big Ducky Peeker. I turned those patterns into tear animals. They turned out very nice.

Projects this week

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!! Bring on spring!!


I have been so busy this week trying to keep up with design team projects and special orders, I've barely had time to breathe. It feels good to be busy and doing what I love to do.

Gonna share 2 of the projects that I did for Precious Piecings. I'm not normally a card maker, but I decided to try one for Easter. I made the cute little bunny card for my youngest niece.  I used pattern # 772 LaBunny Davinci. I love the little expression on her face!


Next project I did was a paper bag album. I used pattern #060 Baby Bunnies on it. The baby bunnies are all throughout the album. This is just a taste of one of them. They are soooo cute!

Thanks for dropping in today. Always glad to see new visitors.

Blessings!

Precious Piecing Blog Challenge--Bling it Up!!

Hello! I am so very excited to be a new member of the design team for Precious Piecings! Precious Piecings have the best paper piecings available for your use. Go check them out HERE.

This week I was right in time for their "BLING" challenge. I love using bling in my creations, you can almost always find it in anything that I make. Well, for this challenge I used pattern #546 Puppy Kisses. I put a little twist on it and made it into a tear animal. It was so simple to turn the pattern into a tear bear paper piecing. Don't you just love this paper piecing...I woof you! So perfect for your pets scrapbook page or maybe a handmade card letting that someone special know that you "woof" them.

I also used bazzill cardstock, bling, puppy embellishments, brads, and DCWV pet stack.

Come check out the rest of the design teams creations by clicking HERE. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look at my newest creations. I hope you will wish me well in my new adventure of being a design team member for Precious Piecings.

Blessings.

Gotta love A Koala!

Hey there! I decided it was time to create another tear bear. Seems like I hardly make them anymore...tear chicks have become my new craze. LOL.

There is just something about a cuddly little koala bear, isn't there? They are just so fuzzy, I could use one as a fluffly pillow. I have to say he is one of my favorite bears to make. You get tired of working with browns for bears, gray is a nice change.

You know by now that I use extra thick, acid/lignin free mulberry paper. He's been penned and chalked for added detail. He'd look so cute wherever you would decide to use him at. If you don't want a he...we can make it a she by adding a hair ribbon and eyelashes.

Click HERE to bid on Ebay!

I'll have some chicks to post later on today. I've been on a roll to say the least. My scrap area is torn up and I need to clean it...or at least clean my desk so that I can see the top of it.

Happy scrapping ladies!!

Blessings

Spring Bunny!

Good morning!
It's a beautiful, bright morning here in SW Ohio. Too bad the temp does not match up with it. It's still cold outside....brrrrrr!

I've been busy creating this week. I found a new love in paper piecing patterns. I've bought several patterns from different companies. My faves so far are from Treasure Box Designs and Precious Piecings. Click on them and go check them out!!

So, green is my favorite color. I absolutely love GREEN! I suppose it is because it reminds me so much of Spring and Easter. I love Easter!!

This paper piecing set was inspired by my love of Easter and the little Easter bunny is to die for. Come on over to ebay and check it out. Click HERE to be taken directly to it.
