May Arts-Cardmaker Magazine Blog Hop

Hi Jenifer here with my card for the hop.  I used May Arts Ribbon 5/8" grosgrain dots if you haven't noticed I use these polka dots on just about everything.  They are a must have staple.  I used the ribbon as the header for my "THANKS" flags.  Everything is raised with some foam dots from Therm O Web and all the paper and stickers are from My Little Shoebox.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, make sure you continue down the list to see everyone else's cards.

May Arts is having a prize of 4 spools winner's choice.  Post a comment on any stop along the way.

Coming Home Cards and Layout- MLS

Hi Jenifer here with you today to share some projects made with the Coming Home collection.  I know I say this with every collection but I absolutely loved this line.  First up I have a card using some of the little flags that are mixed in with the flowers and then I just used some scrap pieces to fill in the gaps.  This is a super easy card that makes a big impression.
For the second card I used the House Stickers as my main focus.  How cute would this card be with some fresh cookies for a new neighbor moving in.
Last but not least I have a fun layout.  I took this picture in Wyoming just before driving into Yellowstone.  I love how the clouds on the paper go with the clouds in the picture.  I added a cute border under the picture using 2 different border punches and then a piece of My Little Shoebox ribbon on the top, add a quick, fun flower and you are done.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my projects today, make sure you come back tomorrow for some fun CHA sneaks.

Mini Winter Wedding Dress-TOW

Have you stopped by the Therm O Web blog lately?  We are revealing some of the projects that we created for CHA.  I can't wait to see what the booth is going to look like.
Hi Jenifer here with you today to share a project I made for the Therm O Web Winter Craft and Hobby (aka CHA) booth.
I created this little table top dress form, wouldn’t these be cute as table centerpieces for a wedding shower or the wedding itself!

Therm O Web Supplies:
Pink Glitter Dust
Silver Glitter Dust
Wood Base
May Arts ribbon
My very talented husband made me the base which is a block of wood with a dowel inserted in the middle that I wiped white paint on it to give it a whitewashed look, I then sprayed it with the Pink Glitter Dust.
I drew a dress form shape then sewed the pieces together and stuffed it and inserted the base through the bottom, now I have my mannequin.
I made the dress like I was making a Barbie dress, you can make your dress to match the bride and even the bridesmaids.
Pin your fabric in place until you get the desired shape.  Sew it together.  Tack everything down by had to keep it on the dress form.  Once you have the dress the way you want it then you add the ribbons and flowers.  Sew them on by hand.
