Dress Forms

I wanted to try my hand at decorating dress forms ...  Yes Dress Forms and boy these little beauties are so addictive to make. I really had a blast making them :  I used the Tim Holtz die cut then I cut several pieces of chip board so that they would be sturdy afterwards I glued them all together.... I got lucky at Joann and found some really pretty cardstock that feels like fabric it was on clearance! WooHoo While I was surfing I came across this video for making a brooch that I used for the middle of  two of the dress forms.....these are way too cool.... ...I had to change up a few things to made it work for me but that was not a problem love they way they turned out!....... I used tulle and lace to make the dresses and what is a dress form without a little bing and a stickpin! Hope that you enjoy what I done  TFL Happy Crafting Suzy-Q

Flowers! Flowers! and more Flowers!

I joined a swap over on to swap handmade flowers. I really enjoyed making these flowers....a lot of the supplies came from Hobby Lobby and Tuesday Morning.  Cloth flowers a my favorite ones to make and  most of these are made out of ribbon and trim that I found in the fabric section...and they are so easy to make. I really wanted to step up my game and make them a little more dimensional than I did the last time so this time I added liquid pearls, stickles, and buttons that I got from various places some are even from swapping with fellow crafters. If you have any questions please leave a message and 
I will be sure to get back to you...
As always Happy Crafting!

My first Card Swap

I have recently completed a card swap and it was very challenging but I was happy on how the cards  turned out I used a stamp that I had found at Michael's and the cardstock came from HL and Michaels the sentiment I typed and printed on the computer. I also used a die cut from spellbinders that I really like...TFL
