sew crafty...

Welcome to the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

This week is one of my favorites:

Sketch Challenge!

LOVE this sketch....I thought I'd play with my Cosmo Cricket Material Girl papers! It teamed up so well with Unity April Store Kit that I hadn't inked up until I designed this card. I bought it over on Crafty Steals {I think that is the one..}

Instead of stitching the 3 panels of papers, I used my Janome threadless....I wanted the piercing instead of the thread to give the card a smidge of character...that and so I didn't have to worry about the stitching lining up with the 3 different panels:)

Do you see that fabbie button....JANE....I finally de-hoarded one of your oh-so-lovely fimo buttons...the waxed twine fit right through the holes..easy smeasy...oh-I-so love her buttons...

I hope that you'll play with us over at Jacksonbelle...

♥♥DeNami Design Alert♥♥


Some of you may have remembered that I helped out in the DeNami Design Booth on Sunday at the Heirloom Productions show. Nami and her team were great....super organized and fun! I had the opportunity to meet and chat with a bunch of DeNami fans...gotta love fellow crafters:)

I'm actually typing this up on Monday morning to post for Tuesday and can I just say I'm beat'ola...it is hard work running a booth at a stamp show....Being on your feet all day is tiring:) It was hard work breaking down the booth...quite the work out and I wasn't even doing any of the really hard stuff...needless to say, on Sunday night I took some Alleve but I'll be moving slower today:)

Here's a peek at some of the goodies I bought at the DeNami booth:)
These Boutique Boxes are fabulous for putting together little gifties....nuggets fit in there like a dream but think of all the other possibilities!

Buttons...a staple supply for me:)

Solid Decorative Crest






Sparklets Glitter!




More buttons:)

I have an all new appreciation of all the hard work it takes to put together a successful booth like DeNami Design! Check out when they'll be at a show near you...
