My Spin on the Pin {8.31.12}


I couldn't help but love THIS CARD.   The stitching drew me in...I had to give it a try!

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


I ended up making two cards, but switched up the color of the flower to make them a little different.


These were fun to make.  I think I may have an addiction to sewing on my cards!  Atleast I'm getting some use out of my sewing machine!

Happy Friday, and happy Pinning!

My Spin on the Pin {8.24.12}


A week ago, I shared a card that I wasn't 100% pleased with.  After changing it up a bit, I ended up with a card that made me happy.

Here's my 2nd Spin on the Pin...


What I wasn't happy about on my first card was the ribbon.  I don't know why, but I just didn't like how it looked.  Rather than using ribbon on this card, I chose to put my stamped sentiment there instead.  And then blinged it up a bit with some pearls.



Since I already had the sewing machine out, I went ahead and made another one, but used a different flower in the center of the scalloped circle.


I like it a lot.

It's hard to see, but the center of the flower is raised up a bit with 3D foam squares.

So what do you think?  Do you like my first card better, or these ones? 

Have a great Friday, and Happy Pinning!

From the Desk of...{Teacher Gift}


My kids started school last week, and I wanted to make their teachers something special to start the year off right.  One of my favorite things to give as a gift lately is a 'From the Desk of...' gift set (template available for purchase HERE).  They're so versatile, and you can really customize them however you want. 

Here's what I ended up making for their teachers...

Included in the set were these cute printable 'Just a little note' cards (click HERE for free printable), & envelopes.

...a Post It Note holder (tutorial found HERE)...

...and a covered notepad (tutorial found HERE) ...

A bar of chocolate was also included, but didn't get a picture of that. 

I made a total of 3 sets, and the kids' teachers loved them!

My Spin on the Pin {8.17.12}


I've had my eye on THIS CARD for a while now.  The element that I loved the most was the zig zag stitching because it adds so much to the card.  Love it!

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


The papers I used came from the Amber Collection of Becky Higgins' Project Life Cardstock.


Yeah...I'm still in love with the stitching!

Although I really do love the stitching, I wasn't 100% happy with how my card turned out.  So I played with it some more, and made another version.  BUT, I'm going to make you wait until next Friday to see it.  'Cause that's just how I roll.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Pinning!

My Spin on the Pin {8.10.12}


Something that I love, but don't do enough of, is sewing on my cards.  I pinned THIS CARD specifically so I would remember to pull out my sewing machine. 

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


My sewing needs work!!  Those lines aren't perfect, but they'll do.

This is the perfect card to use all those scraps up on.  I love that the paper doesn't have to be matchy-matchy (is that even a word?), but inking the edges helps pull it all together.

Have a great weekend....

...and Happy Pinning!
