Just somethin' easy peasy I made as an example for an upcoming online class, "Crafting with the Cricut: Beyond Paper" that starts October 26th. Yes, I do realize it's made of paper and the title of the class is Beyond Paper. Trust me...(wink)

Happy National Sewing Month!

I bet you didn't know it's National Sewing Month, did you? Well, in honor of such a special event(and I'm being serious!) I made a very cool, very "green" reuseable market bag. There are a few very cool things about this.
The first cool thing is that I recycled blue jeans that my DS#2 outgrew to make the handles. The second, very cool thing(pun intended!) is that it's made with the new Insul-Fleece by C&T Publications. Insul-Fleece keeps cold things cold and hot things hot. Metalized mylar is layered in between polyester fleece to create a high-quality barrier that reflects heat or cold. Very easy to sew through. It's coming out very be on the look out!

And while I'm on the subject of fabric, come join me in my first online class of the fall semester at My Creative Classroom, "Fabric: What, How, and WOW!" Come use that stash of fabric you have(or go shopping for one!) and let's create some cute and useful things with my favorite medium...fabric!

We'll make cards, photo frames, embellishments, art quilts, and even wearable fabric art! Click here to see full course description and to register for this class. Class starts Tuesday September 14th.

Remember, an online class means you can view materials 24/7 whenever YOU'RE ready...on YOU'RE schedule....and in your jammies! :D

On an ATC roll...

I am just so loving making these ATC's. Here's another one I made as a sample in one of my online classes, "Fabric: What, How, and WOW!" at My Creative Classroom. Fabric class? Yep. You'll have to join the class to see where the fabric is. (I know, I'm mean...but really, you'll love this class!)

More ATC's

Here's the last three ATC's for the swap and they're packed in an envie for shipping. Can't wait to see the ones I get in return!! I love ATC swaps!! The background for the top and bottom cards is embossed Sticky Backed Canvas...yes, it's true! Such wonderful texture...and from cloth!

Big 5-OH! ATC Swap!

Here's my first two ATC cards for Lisa Vollrath's "Big 5-OH ATC swap". I used Tim Holtz' WONDERFUL BINGO embossing folder for the top one. His embossing folders have such a deep impression. I love them!

All the ATC's should pay homage to Lisa turning 50 this year and journey, adventure, etc. I think these two companions look like they are off on an adventure...don't you think? Maybe they're singing, "On the Road Again"...?
