SGC – Anything Goes

It is time for the last Southern Girls Challenge of the year, and we’re doing Anything Goes. As Christmas is coming I thought I’d do a Christmas layout. I had this lovely shaped paper from BoBunny, and found some thread to match. I measured up where my photos needed to be, and then made a…

SGC – Tags

Today is Tags with Southern Girls Challenge. I love making tags, fun for a small and quick piece of art. But for this challenge I decided to continue with my scrapbooking and use tags in a different way – on a layout. These sweet pictures of me, age 2 went perfectly with the large tags…

Machinery Cloth Book

I love these little felt cutouts of machinery from Imagine If, and the little boys in my life also love trucks.  So I decided to make a book that even a small boy can enjoy, a fabric one.  You can find them in sets of three here and here. I started out by cutting my…
