Hannah Door/Wall Hanger

Morning Everyone!

Today, I have a DT creation to share with you, a door/wall hanger.
I've made it for The Ribbon Girl's Everything Goes With An Image challenge.


The image I used is called Hannah from Saturated Canary.
 When I first saw this image, I was totally amazed how
it resembles one of my coworker's teenage daughter
whose name is Hannah and who also has two cats.
I was inspired to make a door/wall hanging for her.

I have colored the image with Distress Ink pads as usual.

Dies ~ Marianne Design, Magnolia, Memory Box, Spellbinders


The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:

WOC apple blossom, white Gutermann top stitching thread,
3mm ivory flatback s/a pearls, 6mm sticky tape. 


You can see all the Ribbon Girl design team creations here.
We would love you to joy in the fun creating.

I hope my creation has inspired you as Krista's digi stamp inspired
me to create this door/wall hanger for a sweet young girl.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Katie

Thank You Tilda Wall Hanging ~ Tilda with Fantasy Flowers

Good Morning Everyone!

How quickly has the time passed; it is the end of March already!
I have had a busy month in my personal life and also enjoyed our abnormally
mild weather here in Vancouver. Cherry blossoms are in full display
and the temperature reached 18C the other day. So I won't
complain about a few spring showers here and there :^)

On to my regular last Sunday of the month post, it is the
Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl Inspirational Blog.
The theme this week is ~ Not A Square.

For my DT creation, I made a heart-shaped wall hanging in spring colors
using Magnolia stamp image Tilda With Fantasy Flowers.


I have this stamp in my stash for a while, it is the first time to ink her up!
The image was colored with Distress Ink pads as usual.
I started coloring with Distress Inks a couple of years ago and have enjoyed
the beautiful soft tone immensely. I use my Copics and Prisma pencils
from time to time, but I always go back to watercoloring.


The heart-shaped base measures approximately 5"(W) x 8"(H).
I top stitched the DP and embossed the butterfly with shabby white frantage.

Designer paper ~ Pion Design Fairytale Spring Collection
Dies ~ Magnolia Doohickey, Marianne Design, and Nellies Choice

cream seam binding ribbon, natural hemp twine, 3mm & 6mm sticky tapes,

Happy Day with Flower Friend Avery

Morning My Dear Friends!
Hope you are well wherever you are.

I have a new PND guest design creation to share with you today.
Since spring and Easter is just around the corner, I made an egg-shaped shadow box card
 using Flower Friend stamp from Paper Nest Dolls' Fairytale Collection.

The shadow box is about 6.5"(H) x 5"(W) x 1.5"(D). The front panel has an opening
which is joined with the back panel with an 1.5" accordion fold on each side.
 Avery is attached to the front panel with narrower accordion folds.
I am not able to show you the side views as I forgot to take
pictures before I sent the card off to Christine.


I have colored the image with Distress Ink pads as usual.


Designer paper ~ Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour and Vintage Spring Basic Collections.
Dies ~ Impression Obsessions, Magnolia, and Memory Box.
Sentiments ~ Retired Stampin'Up rub-ons.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:

Tilda With Her Bunny ~ Another Fridge Post-It-Note Caddy

Happy March 1st Everyone!
Hope you are all doing well wherever you are.

Today, I have a new creation to share with you; another fridge post-it-note caddy.
I made one not too long ago here and really like the way it dresses up 
my kitchen. This one is for a friend's birthday coming up very soon.
Hope this adds a functional element in her kitchen too.

I recently accepted a DT invitation From Katie Tate, Scor-Pal
Design Team Coordinator and Social Media Director.
Scor-Pal products have always been my must-have items for crafting,
e.g. Scor-Pal scoring board, Scor-tape and Scor-mat.
I think designing for products I love is the best way to showcase 
my creativity and the versatility of the products.


This DT creation is designed for both Ribbon Girl and Scor-Pal.
The challenge themes are:
The Ribbon Girl March Card Challenge: Add flowers
The Ribbon Girl Blog

Scor-Pal March Challenge: Organizational and More Than One Score

The image is Tilda With Her Bunny from Magnolia Butterfly Dreams Collection.
I have colored it with Distress Ink pads as usual.


Designer Paper: Maja Design Nyhavn Collection
Dies/punch: Magnolia, Memory Box, Go Kreate, Martha Stewart

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm Rebecca ivory vintage cluny lace, 3mm white s/a flatback pearls,
5mm white s/a flatback pearl, white Gutermann top stitching thread,
WOC lemon yellow and blue blossom flowers, Apple Blossom flower,
Forget-Me-Not fabric flowers, cream tiny Ric Rac ribbon.

This post-it-note caddy measures 9.5"(H)x 5"(W)x 0.75"(D).
I have borrowed the idea from my blog friend Alexandra, AKA Clay Guana.
She has a lovely fridge post-it-note holder tutorial here.
I have modified her dimension for my version in order to fit the topper.
 And of course, I used my Scor-Pal for precise scoring the caddy part.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
I am still working my way through a few spring birthday cards and some 
baby projects. Hopefully I get time to stop by your blogs soon.

Have a lovely day!

Hugs,
Katie

Tilda Kitchen Towel Holder ~ Use Lace at The Ribbon Girl

Good Morning Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well and enjoying the weekend!
We've had a very mild winter here in Vancouver, the cherry blossom has already started.

I apologize that I have not visited your blog or Facebook posts lately
as I have been busy at work and at home.

So onto my post today, a DT creation for The Ribbon Girl's February
Magnolia Only Challenge. The theme this month is ~ Use Lace.
I have always loved the lace collections at The Ribbon Girl Shop;
the vintage style laces are my favorite and must have in my stash.

I made a couple of kitchen towel holders using Violet Tilda
from the 2013 Magnolia Sea Breeze Collection.
The towel holders are miniature aprons measuring 5"x9".
The 2 aprons are slightly different, can you tell at least 3 differences?


The image was stamped on TAP paper (Transfer Artist Paper) and
colored with Copics before transferred onto fabric by ironing.


One of my favorite items from The Ribbon Girl is the sticky tape.
I have collected a stash of the plastic cores and intended to use them
in my creations. Here is one of the ideas that you can recycle them.
 I have used the ring as the towel holder under the apron skirt.



The ring is detachable and the apron is machine washable.


Here is a picture of how I hung the towel in my kitchen drawer handle.


And this is the picture of the much improved version :^) !
You can hang the towel holder on oven handle too.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope my creation has inspired you
to create a towel holder for your home.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Katie

Love Grows ~ Fridge Post-It-Note Caddy

Hello Peeps!
Hope you all are having a great weekend.

Today I have a new creation to share with you ~ a fridge note caddy.
I have made it for The Ribbon Girl's Card Challenge ~ Romance.

Instead of making a Valentine's Day card, I thought of making a
post-it-note caddy for the fridge door since my DH can never
find the note pad and pen when he needs one.

The idea is from my crafty friend Alexandra, aka ClayGuana.
She had a post-it- note fridge holder tutorial here.
I have borrowed her idea and made my own measurement for this 
fridge note caddy. Thanks Alexandra for your inspiration!


The image is a retired LOTV stamp, Love Grows.
I have water colored it with DI pads.


Designer Paper~ Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour Collection

Dies ~ Marianne Design, Memory Box, Joy Craft, Magnolia, Spellbinder


The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
K&G pale pink rolled rose, WOC pale lemon and pink blossom flowers,
WOC 10mm pale pink open roses, WOC tiny pale pink rosebuds, 
 38mm vintage pink fluted edge sheer ribbon, 17mm Faye ivory cluny lace,
8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace, 25mm Deborah ivory cluny lace, 
3mm white flatback s/a pearls, white top stitching thread,
3mm and 6mm sticky tapes.



I love this note caddy. It makes my fridge door looks rather pretty!
I think I will make a few more as gifts for friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a lovely week!

Hugs,
Katie
