I started making this for me – that is why it is blue instead of yellow…The more work I put into it the more I thought this would be perfect for my mom! She is just getting into quilting again now that she has retired. I figure this will be great for her to keep measurements and color schemes etc…in! 🙂 I followed the sketch from Cutie Sunday. I thought I’d “distress it” some too. I hand made the flowers. My husband couldn’t believe I chose to use my measuring tape as my “ribbon”. I used two different edge punches – the sewing one and the lacy one. I used my alphabet dies for her name. The blue and white polka dot paper is a FLD digi paper. The adorable seamstress is a Bugaboo digi stamp. And here are several shots of the notebook:
I am new at making paper flowers and didn’t want to make anything too difficult – now I can’t find the original video I used off Youtube (***tip*** If you are a visual/hands-on learner like me, YouTube is great to learn different techniques!!! ) so I’m going to share this one that is great too! I chose to use two different sizes of scallop punches and only used two then a button. Here is the video:
Thanks for looking!
