Clear thanks + my 1st tote!

Friday, May 8, 2009

Hello peeps! How's your day going? I've been a busy little girl!! tons of design stuff to do as well as other daily errands to run. My car's in the workshop for servicing, the guy called me earlier to tell me that my suspension system on my front right tyre was leaking. I mean, do suspensions leak in the first place?? arrghhh. Anyways, so not going to fix that problem there. Going to bring it in to Malaysia to do it, cheaper that way PLUS I've got a friend there in the car industry so I know they will not be overcharging me HAH.
Here's a card I made some time back, I had some Hambly leftover so i used it for this card which shape I cut out with my Cuttlebug & Labels One Nestabilities dies. I then cut another inward layer to mat the shape with the same dies only 1 size down. There's a video I made on how to do something similar like this if you wanna see :) Here it is.

By the way, I'm loving the papertreyink's 'damask designs' stamp set that comes with that gorgeous sentiment! Truly so classic.
Then I just tied some string around the front of the card and adhered a punched out star & layered on some buttons. There's some faux stitching too, NO way can I really sew something like that using the pink mean sewing machine *lol*
Still on the topic of sewing, I made this tote last night!
Isn't it cute??? The finishing inside isn't too fab but OK for a first try i guess :) And the ugly stitching on the front from attaching the handles? Just cover' em up with some matching ribbon. GLUED ON bwahahaha
Not sure what I'm going to use it for yet, maybe store punches or something along that line teehee. I took inspiration from here & here if you wanna check it out. Do hop around to the 2nd link, Elizabeth's got lotsa great tutorials over there ;)
Have a great day!! :)
