I am moving to a nEw BLOG

I am moving to a new blog URL. Please visit www.southerncrafts.wordpress.com

It still needs more love but I will get there eventually.

I will be updating there as soon as I can.

Here Comes The Bride...

I used the new victoria case digital stamp (I sound like a commercial for victoria case don't I?). I used my sewing machine to stitch both the outside left and around the Paper Trey Ink gorgeous Paper from the hodge podge collection.

I cant wait until tomorrow to see what victoria comes out with next! This card is for sale. Leave me a comment if your interested. :)

Victoria Case Challenge #6

I did another Victoria Case Challenge.
I love this new digi image I just bought from her, it is called The Shopper.

This challenge was to create a card using one of her images as well as Black Kraft and Red Cardstock. I dont own any Kraft, but brown came pretty close. I colored the shopper in with my prismas and OMS. I cut her out and added an extra dog and extra packages. A girl can never have enough packages! Those dogs are too darn cute, Their collars are embellished with glossy accents. The red scalloped square was embossed with my dots cuttlebug folder and that fantastic paper is from Basic Grey. I also used my ek success swiss dots punch to make that fun pattern on the black piece.

Oh I do want to mention how you all can save alot of money on sentiments! Instead of spending money why not just look through your favorite stamping company, find that just right sentiment and then get a free font from fontspace.com and then create it in word. More than likely you will find the same font they used :) That is what I did with this sentiment :)

This is one of my favorite images of Victoria Case so far. I cant wait for her new release on the 10th!

Victoria Case Blog Challenge #5

This is the sketch we followed this week:
I didnt follow the sketch exactly, I changed it up a bit.

It took me 5 attempts at doing this, I am very tired tonight, Both kids are home and I couldnt get my mojo working. But It finally clicked into gear! Woohoo..

I love this new image of Victoria Case's Stork I used my copics to color in the stork, stickles on the baby blanket and Safari Kids Stack Pack by DCWV. I have a bunch of cute buttons in my stash, and I just happen to find that tug board. My sentiment is a stamp i found at Hobby Lobby. That circle where the sentiment lays is from SCAL its actually a Spellbinders file called Dahlia, I googled it and I found the SVG. :) If you want a copy let me know.

Have a great night.

Blog Award!

Thank You Jackie!!! The rules are to display this award on your beautiful blog with a link to mine and the 7 blogs you are passing the award to. So I am passing the award to the following blogs:


Stitching on Cards

I am so glad to have my sewing machine back in working condition. I finally can do some sewing. One of my blog buddies Stephanie was kind of enough to send me some penny black images, as I dont own any, Thank you so much!!! I dont know the name of this stamp set. I love them and they are on my wish list.

I stitched on this card using the PTI cardstock because of its weight. Its very heavy and handles stitches well. I used black straight stitch and a yellow scallop stitch. I love the way embrodiery thread looks on cards. It has a nice shine to it.

Room Photos

As promised here is my new room. The new color is a greenish blue, looks very blue on camera. Not sure why. I didnt make the curtains yet, I just draped the fabric on my rod (the machine is in for service) I still need a few things, an area rug, some photos, pillows another chair. But I got the painting done! Woohoo

This is what it look like before. It was my sons room. I kicked him out hehehe. Naah hes in a new room now.

And this is what it looks like now..

Computer/Cricut Area

This Ugly book case is going to be replaced with More adjustable shelves and I would like a real sewing table one day :)

I used Stampin Up Purple Cardstock, Momento Ink and a cosmetic sponge for the shading, my yummy Prisma Pencils with OMS and of course my scalloped nestie dies. Now I want more nesties! hehe....

Have a good day!
