It's just SEW easy!

I'm not usually one who is big into altering things.  But, when I saw this line of Jillibean goodies, I thought it really called for this.  I used a Sucrets tin and altered it to create an emergency sewing kit for my desk at school. 

Here's the inside....
I used one of the die cut buttons and some foam tape to make a secure place to store a needle.
 Then, I added buttons, safety pins and some thread (on some bobbins that someone gave me that don't fit my machine),

 Here's the outside top view:

And the side....

I'm so pleased with how this project came out.  And, had another sore throat this week, so I have another Sucrets tin that will become something fun soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Fun Halloween Project!

I saw this cute project somewhere in my scrappy-internet-adventures and thought, "This is super cute!  I need to remember this one."  Then, of course, I couldn't find it again when I wanted to try it.... so through trial and error, I figured it out.

There's a tutorial on how to make it on the A Walk Down Memory Lane blog.  And, today I got the honor (and SHOCK) of having this project shared on Creating Keepsakes Facebook page today!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I have more fun projects to share with you and will be back soon!

More Jillibean Goodness!

For some reason, everytime I create something using Jillibean Soup products, I LOVE the end results.  I don't know why that is, exactly, but their products just seem to fit my style so perfectly!

I've made several cards this month using Jillibean Soup's Apple Cheddar Soup and Homemade 6 lines.  Here they are.....

This one features a the October card sketch at My Sketch World by Lucy Chesna!  I also stamped a row of hearts using Ranger's Glossy Accents!

Thank you for stopping by today!  You can shop all month at A Walk Down Memory Lane and get 25% off all Jillibean Soup and Ranger goodies!  Enjoy!

Time to share!

It's time to share more projects!  YAY!  This month at A Walk Down Memory Lane, Jillibean Soup and Ranger are the featured manufacturers!  That means you can get 25% off all instock products from Jillibean Soup and Ranger for the entire month!

I got to play with the fabulous fall collection, Apple Cheddar Soup and I love the projects that came about!

First of all, "Apple Picking."  I feel like I'm out of snappy titles for layouts about picking apples each year, but this plain title seemed to do the trick.  This layout was inspired by one that was on the Jillibean Blog.

I used some Ranger Glossy Accents on the Apple Trees that I cut out to give a little "pop" to the apples!

This layout was created using a sketch from the Jillibean Soup Blog.  It's a little different for me, so it was a good challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back soon to share the cards that I made with this gorgeous collection.  Have a happy day!
