Altered Book Halloween Mini-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  Halloween is right around the corner and with the new Halloween Stacks I went to work creating this super cute altered book mini album.  This mini has tons of pockets and tags, ribbons, strings and charms.
The Halloween stack has beautiful copper foiling and it can be hard to get a good picture of it.  I layered the spiderweb paper with some tulle and string and a beautiful Blue Moon Bead Spider.  I love how the cover turned out.

Here are a few of the inside pages, as you can see there are tons of tags and pockets for journaling and pictures.  I love how interactive and fun this mini is, my little ones had a great time going through all of the little pockets and compartments

Blend Quilt and Pillow-TOW

Hi there this is Jenifer here with you today to share this Christmas quilt and pillow that I made using the I love Christmas fabric from Blend.  I am so excited to be getting started with my Christmas decorating early and this quilt is the perfect touch.
The quilt is a free pattern from AGF called Palisades and it is perfect to show off these beautiful fabrics.

As you can see I used one of the beautiful reindeer's from the panel fabrics, he was just too cute to not showcase.  

For my pillow I used the Santa from the big panel and a section from the smaller panel from the back to tie everything in.  This pillow is large measuring 24"x 24" I didn't have a pillow form in my stash this size so of course I decided to make my own with supplies I had on hand.

Step 1: cut a piece of StitchNSew Pattern material and StitchNSew Sew in Fleece in your desired size + 1", to cover your 1/2" seam allowances.  I cut mine at 25"x 25".
Step 2: layer the fleece and pattern material on top of each other and sew, leaving a 5" opening on one side.
Step 3: Turn your pillow form right side out and stuff with stuffing.  I used 3/4 of a large bag of stuffing to fill my pillow form.  Once stuffed then sew opening. 
Step 4:  Enjoy your new pillow form and enjoy making your own in any size you may need.

Fall Floral Wreath-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  Have you see these new Lia Griffith/DCWV stack "Fall Paper Flowers" that DCWV have recently come out with?  They are beautiful!!  I don't even have the words to tell you how absolutely beautiful these flowers are. 

I have chosen to use my flowers in making a fall wreath for my front door.  These beautiful flowers come together pretty quickly.  All you have to do is punch out the shapes and then using scissors or a tool you shape your flowers, this can be done while watching TV.

A little bit of hot glue and your flowers are ready to go.  Just imagine everything that can be done with these lovely beauties.

This stack is a definite must have and I just hope that the partnership continues and we see a winter, spring and summer stack from this match made in heaven.

Supplies used :
hot glue
floral wire
May Arts Ribbon
