Adelade Quilt TOW and Dear Stella

Hi there Therm O Web fans this is Jenifer here with you today to share this fun lap quilt I made from the Adelaide Collection from Dear Stella.  It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do with this beautiful collection of fabrics and then I came across this free pattern.  I did make it a bit bigger by adding a 5" border all the way around and with some of my cut off triangles I managed to make fun little pinwheels at the corners.

This quilt came together fairly quickly and with the minimal quilting that I did it was finished in no time.  I used almost all of my fat quarter bundle, and I even managed to use it to make a scrappy binding.  I love seeing the little pops of color from the back.

Here is some of the backing, I got this awesome black and white fabric from my local fabric store that was going out of business and with all of the discounts it ended up being $1.40 a yard, big score for me :)
One of my favorite things to use is Sew in Fleece it gives my light weight quilts just the right amount of stuffing on those not to chilly days.  When putting all of the layers together a quick spray with the Basting spray and I don't have to worry about shifting.

Tutorial for adding a quilt label to your quilt using EZ print Transfer Sheets.

Gather your supplies, Ez Print Transfer sheets, a piece of quilting cotton that to use for your label, pins and a pair of scissors or rotary cutter.

Step 1:  Print desired label or image using an inkjet printer.
Peel off the paper backing and place on fabric.

Step 2:  Iron image onto the fabric with a piece of parchment between the iron and the fabric.

Step 3: Iron carefully around your edges 1/4" to 1/2" so you have nice finished edges.

Step 4: Sew your new custom label to the back of your quilt.

Foil Monogram Bag-TOW

I am just stopping in today to share this fun bag that I made for my Daughter.  She plays a lot of Softball and I thought I would make a nice big bag, in her team colors, so when we travel it can be done in style.  I added a few different touches to make this bag special for her the first being her initials in red foil.  I just love this and really think it makes the bag.  The other change I made is instead of using webbing for the handles I went with a faux leather and it really takes this bag to another level.

I found this free pattern at the Sew4Home website.  The pattern is clear and easy to follow with their step by step instructions.  One of my favorite things about this bag is that with the long separating zipper the bag opens really wide so you are able to access everything easily.  See how wonderful the piping is to separate the pockets and it is just a beautiful detail.

Watercolor Card with LDRS

I was so excited to receive this lovely stamp and oval dies for my project.  This girl is so cute she reminds me of my darling daughter so with her Birthday coming up I thought I would put together a fun card for her.

I haven't really gotten into the coloring craze so I was a little worried about coloring this beautiful girl so I broke out my watercolors and added a little color here and there and I am so pleased with how she turned out.  While I had my watercolors out I added a little color to the pink rosettes and I am loving the ombre effect this has.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today.  Make sure you stop by everyone's lovely projects for more inspiration.

Mothers Day gift-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  Mothers Day is coming up quickly so I thought I would put together a quick gift for one of my special friends that will be celebrating her first Mothers Day this year.

Using the DIY rolled Flowers stack I created this large rose.  I love how big and beautiful it is.  Using a stylus I rounded out the petals to give it a little more dimension and I filled the center with some pearls and some tulle.  DCWV also has these beautiful sturdy boxes and I love the contrast with the black and gold and the big pink flower.

The box is a little big for the necklace but it just keeps the gift a mystery.

Have you seen these beautiful new necklaces from Blue Moon Beads?  They are called Tiny Worlds and there are several options that you can do fill up these small little containers.  I LOVE THEM and they make perfect little gifts for teachers and friends.

I just wanted to say Happy Mothers Day!!

Lovely Thank You Card with Wow

Hi there for my very last post on the WoW team I thought I would do a beautiful Thank You card to Thank the wonderful team and leaders for Wow Embossing powders.  I have been on this team for several years and have learned a lot of new things and I will forever be grateful to have had this opportunity.

I used the Chrysanthemum stamp on some watercolor paper using the Coconut Ice embossing glitter.  After heat setting my image I colored them in using some watercolors.  After the water colors dried I cut them out and layered them on my card. 

Using the Pick&Mix stamp I stamped directly on to my card base and my card is complete:)
Thank you so much for following me along on my embossing journeys and just remember this isn't good bye I will be back with more embossed projects in the future :)

Spring Jar-May Arts

Welcome Ribbon Fans!!  This is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun flowery project with you today.  I can't wait for spring and since there is still a little bit of snow on the ground and I just know that beautiful flowers are just around the corner, I thought that I would create a little bit of spring to set on my desk.  I haven't decided what to put in the jar yet maybe change or even quotes.  What would you use the jar for?

Lay a paper doily as your first layer and then just build from there.

Lately on of my favorite things is the 524-38-09 Pearls.  I love to tuck them in here and there to give dimension and texture to my projects.

Add a couple little butterflies here and there to give it a little bit more whimsy.
