Try It On Tuesday~Challenge Flowers

This week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is using flowers.  I created this small journal cover using my gelli plate fabric and Prima flowers.


I sew around the circles and placed my tear bear behind a piece of plastic to protect it from getting dirty.  Be sure to check out the other design team members creations and come and play at TIOT.  ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Try It On Tuesday~Use a Stencil

This week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is “Use a Stencil”.  I used a brick stencil to create a faux old building wall.  I have created what I call my “House in a Box Card”.
It all folds down to fit in the box that I made.  I also, created a Halloween one too.

Seth Apter Background Noise @ The Ink Pad

June and I went to The Ink Pad to take Seth Apter class Background Noise.  The Ink Pad is full with so much eye candy and Anna is super nice and made us feel right at home.
