My Spin on the Pin {3.30.12}

My Card Ideas Board on Pinterest is full of cards that inspire me.  I don't know if I'll ever get around to putting my spin on all of them, but I'll sure try! 

Today's card was inspired by THIS PIN of THIS CARD.

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


I love the simplicity of this card, and the fact that it was quick to put together is always a plus! 


Hope you have a great weekend!!  Happy Pinning!

Congratulations {baby card}

Just wanted to pop in real quick and share a card.  I made this one for a family in my area that recently welcomed a new baby boy into their family. 


I usually put my own spin on cards that I find online, but not this time.  After looking at what supplies I had on hand, I sketched out what I wanted the card to look like then got to work. 


I've also made a 'girl version' that I'll share with you soon. 

In other news, we're in the full swing of volleyball and soccer around here.  One of my daughters is in a volleyball league, and all 4 of my girls are playing soccer.  BUSY!  Want to know the best part?  I actually volunteered to coach one of my girls' soccer teams...even though I know NOTHING about soccer!  We've already had our first game, and will be playing our second one tonight.  I feel a little overwhelmed with what I DON'T know, but hopefully the girls will have a fun season no matter what.  Wish me luck, and send happy thoughts my way!  Oh, and if any of you have coached a girl's soccer team before, any tips you could give me would be AWESOME!!  I need all the help I can get!!

Baby Shower Gift #2

Today I'm finally able to share another baby shower gift with you.  This set went to my friend who is expecting her baby girl later this month.


I appliqued a polka dot flower on the onesie, and added a red center to match the shoes.

Oh, these shoes...I am in LOVE with them!  I think this color combo is my favorite so far.  Love the black/white/red together! (pattern here)

And, of course, the hair bows.  (tutorial here)  

If you didn't see the first set I shared, you can find it HERE!

My Spin on the Pin {3.16.12}

Today's 'My Spin on the Pin' comes from THIS PIN of THIS CARD.

 
I'll admit that when I first made this card, I hated it.  But the more I've looked at it, the more it has grown on me.  I think it's a keeper!

Have a great weekend, and Happy Pinning!

Baby Shower Gift

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had been working on a sewing project, but had to wait to show you what I was making.  Well, the wait is over!

I've got 2 sister-in-laws that are expecting baby girls in the next few months.  This is the first for both of them, so I wanted to make something fun for their baby showers.

One of them had her baby shower last weekend, and here's what I made for her.


The baby's name is going to be Nadia, so I appliqued an 'N' on a onesie.  Making appliqued onesies has been on my 'To Do List' for years, and I don't know why I waited so long to give it a try.  Easiest gift ever, and it turned out adorable too! 

The next part of my gift was these handmade baby shoes.  I am SO in love with these!!  The pattern can be purchased HERE from Make It and Love It.

And the final part of my gift was these cute baby bows.  I wanted the bows to match the fabric on the onesie & shoes, and found some ribbon in my stash that matched perfectly.  Love it when that happens! (the tutorial I used for the bows can be found HERE).

I wasn't able to attend the baby shower, but was told that my gift was a big hit!! 

I've got 2 more sets to show you in the coming weeks.  One set got sent off to a friend in the mail yesterday (she's expecting her baby girl at the end of this month), and the last one will be given to my other sister-in-law in a few weeks.  Since I don't want to spoil the surprise, I'll wait until they've received their gifts before I share them on here!

My Spin on the Pin {3.09.12}

I hope you all aren't getting tired of seeing CARDS!!  It's no secret that making cards is one of my most favorite things to do, and when I see a fabulous one like THIS CARD, it gets pinned onto my Card Ideas Board.  Most of the time, I can handle waiting for a few days or even a few weeks before I sit down and make a card based on one of my pins, but that wasn't the case this time.  I was so excited, that I had to make one that same day!

Here's My Spin on the Pin...

I used up some of my scraps for this card, and the sentiment stamp is from the Sentiment Sampler set by Paper Smooches.


These pictures make it look like the squares aren't evenly spaced, but I promise that they are!!  Nothing bothers me more than when I put something crooked or uneven on my cards.

This card seriously makes me SMILE.  I just love it! 

Happy Pinning!
