We'll Miss You, Dawn

This is a card I made for a friend who's mother passed this month. I'm new to stamping but I like how it turned out.

I only met Dawn a handful of times. To me, she was a natural giver. She was always willing to help and always maintained positivity. We'll miss you, Dawn.

I am a butterfly...

I am a butterfly.
All day long, I flutter by.
Should I chance to catch your eye,
Stop and smile, don't be shy!
--- L. Topps

These custom order pastel butterflies were a pleasant surprise for me. Apparently the butterflies from one of my cards caught someone's eye! Yay!

I love my little ones

I just love these kitties I designed with my Boss Kut Gazelle! I made these to be paper piecings so that I could vary the colours. The solid silhouette was designed just as a base for the pieces. I’m actually partial to how they turned out as a silhouette!

It is a little finicky to place the pieces. As a solid piece, one could draw on a face or some stripes themselves.

Here is what it looks like fully fleshed out with its pieces though. I had trouble cutting a small enough nose and then I thought, why not just use some sparkly Stickles glue?

I actually designed a dog first, but when I finished I realized all I had to do to make a cat was change the ears and add a tail. Here is a picture of the fully pieced dog version of my homemade paper piecings.

Eventually, both my online stores will carry both models.

ARISE my minions!

Here they are: my little army of paper quilled teddy bears. These bears are for my baby boy christening invitation order. I’ve been trying to keep my house as de-cluttered as possible since we are trying to move and showings will be starting soon. While the bears were in progress, it looked like a teddy bear Frankenstein shop, what with them pinned in place and such! You can see my makeshift circle sizer in the background. It isn’t great, but it does well enough.

Now that I’ve finished the stack, I have to go grab some more supplies for 10 extra cards and a whole set of flat reply cards. Since it’s Canada Day, the stores are closed, so it will have to wait for another day.

And then I will de-clutter the scrap studio… promise…
