I'm Not A Material Girl

Now my dear hubby might disagree with that statement when he looks at my craft area - bahahaha! But in this case I'm talking material such as fabric, give me my rubber, ink, and paper anyday, but SU! came up with fabric so you know I just had to give it a try :)

Yesterday I showed you a Top Note box done with wood sheets, well take a look at it done with fabric!!!! Yummy!!!

Now if SU! brings out a mini craft style sewing machine, you better know, I'll have to have that too!

The first photo is of the box kinda standing up so you can see the top best, the second photo shows more of the box itself, and the third photo shows the inside.

My tag is made with Many Merry Messages and some left over scraps of the new vintage DS paper - see I do use my scraps, I knew there was a reason I kept them, he,he,he!

Yep, it holds chocolates very well!

Big Shot Class Act 1

How's fall treating everyone? My entire house has been down with colds this past week, plus we've had two weekends of kids ranging from 17 to 27 hanging out with us! Who would think they'd wanna hang with a couple of old foggies!

Anyway I thought I'd spend the next couple of days sharing what we did in my Big Shot class last week, this is the first card:
We embossed the entire folded card with the vintage wallpaper folder, then turned it "inside out" folded down the front and formed the pocket.

The Players are:
Cherry Cobbler c/s
Early Espresso c/s
Ivory Naturals c/s
Kraft c/s
Friends 24-7 set
Kraft ink
Early Espresso ink
Lace ribbon

It's all about Dreams

I love how this card turned out!

I stamped the En Francis background stamp onto the Newsprint DSP, stamped my image from Dreams Du Jour onto vanilla and Pink Pirouette, then cut it out and layered it, used the eyelet punch to give some more detail and added some vanilla ribbon - TA DA! Done!
