Okay, so I'm a day late and a dollar short and I never finished last week's challenge, BUT, I finally finished the template challenge so I'm moving forward instead of looking back (like sweet Lisa recommended).
This has to be quick because I have a TON of stuff to get done and I’ve already lost most of my day. I’ll try to come back later with additional photos. So sorry :[
If you came here via the JUGS blog, you know Lauren Meader is sponsoring us this week and gave the girls the soon to be released (1 Apr 10), Slip Cover template to use :] This thing is soooo easy to whip together, it’s a MUST HAVE for your template collection, seriously! I didn’t use one smidge of adhesive on the bottom portion…and it stays together beautifully without it!
I stamped the flourish in Wild Wasabi and added red and blue buttons from my stash to resemble berries :] Notice the different button stitches I used…cute ehh? LOL I stitched them right to the cs also…no chance in them falling off later. I hand-stitched the border and added my sentiment from All A Flutter Sentiments, and a butterfly from the Flutters and Flowers collection. The paper is my MTME digi paper from Darling Dots and Ga Ga for Gingham, and the ribbon is from May Arts.
I filled this with berry seed packets and a pair of gloves. I’m sending it to a sweet young lady in my life…whose mother just might be checking my blog, so I’m keeping her name a secret :]
Okay, that’s all for now. Hopefully I can add those other pictures later. Be sure to check out the other JUGS creations. Links are in my left sidebar! Don’t forget to swing by our March Featured Designer’s blog also…the oh so talented, Stephanie Kraft. If you play along, you’ll be in the running to win a free template from Lauren! Please link your creation using InLinkz over at JUGS and also use keyword JUGS26 in any online galleries :O)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back next week hosting the sketch challenge.
