December Daily-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team! I love December Daily's but I never seem to have enough time to complete them.  So this year I decided to keep it super simple.  I am going to keep this in my bag and I will fill out a tag for each day with thoughts or activities and pictures.  Keeping it low key just might make it work for me.

I found this beautiful Christmas book at a book sale for $.25.  It is a beautiful red and had these beautiful gold embossed holly leaves on the cover.  I wanted to do something special with these and incorporated them into a shaker box.

This book is not very thick so I had to keep everything pretty simple.  To add some texture I created some little pocket pages with some glitter and floating elements.

Each page has a number for each day in December, I cut these out from the All About Christmas stack.  This stack has so many cute designs it was hard just picking out a few fun pages and elements.

Here is a side view.  I just love looking at all the fun goodies poking out.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I can get this book done this year.
Thank you so much for looking at my project today and I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Supplies Used:
All about Christmas stack DCWV
Ribbons May Arts
Strings Blue Moon Beads
Bow on the Cover from the Gift Decor Stack

Mini Winter Wreath- DCWV and Eileen Hull Hop

Good Morning DCWV fans and Eileen Hull fans.  I am so excited to share my project with you today.  I had this fun mini wreath laying around my craft room for awhile now just waiting for the perfect opportunity to get it decorated.

The new Twist tool from EH makes it easy to twist wires, threads and strings to make awesome projects.

Here is a close up you can see I used some wired strings around the wreath and also for the hanger.  I can't wait to use this tool again, it was so much fun.  I used the new Cranberry Christmas stack and some velvet flowers I had in my stash and the entire project took about 15 minutes.
Thank you so much for stopping by today,
Have a wonderful Holiday Season.

Quilt Market Projects for the ThermOWeb booth

Hi there Therm O Web fans :)  This is Jenifer here with you today to share the projects that I made for Quilt Market.   Moda was kind enough to send out this beautiful Manderlay fabric for the booth and Wonderfil Threads provided us with some beautiful threads.  I can't wait to see this booth.

My first project is this knit wrap skirt that I did in Alabama Chanin style, with raw edges and hand stitching.  I used the new Soft Stretch interfacing for the waist band and it is beautiful giving some stability but still giving the fabric some movement.  I appliqued these roses to the bottom corner and did some hands stitching with some beautiful Wonderfil thread.  I am so pleased with how the skirt turned out that I can't wait to make some more.

For my second project I made this fun little purse using some Fusible fleece and the awesome fabrics from Moda.  I made a cute flower out of some flannel using the Soft Stretch and it almost turned my flannel pieces into felt give it the stability I needed to make a flower without all of the bulk.  There will definitely be more flannel projects in my future.

For my last project I made a fun hoop showcasing the beautiful Moda fabrics and I couldn't help but add some beautiful Deco Foils to it.  This hoop came together pretty quickly and would look really cute with a couple others that coordinated with it.
