Sewing Notions Drawers

Hi everyone! I am back for my final project of February! I created this sewing notions drawers from Eileen Hull’s new diecut, Stacking Drawer Diecut that premiered  at Creativation in January.

Instead of stacking the drawers on top of each other I decided to place them side by side.

I cut three sets of drawers diecuts from Matboard and put together according to directions on the packaging. I adhered all three “walls” together and covered with patterned cardstock from Authentique. Actually all cardstock used on this project is from Authentique and if I remember correctly it from the Fabulous Collection.

I put all the drawers together and covered with cardstock outside and on the inside too. Before covering the inside with cardstock I added drawer pulls which I attached with brads.

I cut all the flowers and leaves from the Flowers and Leaves Jouranling Cards Diecuts.

I shaped all the flowers and added cording, lace, pearl top pins and mini spools to the top of the drawers.

I also added sequins and gems to the center of each flower. 

I dressed up the outside edges by adhering decorative trim to both sides of the drawers. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see what the rest of the team has created! You can find these post HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Quilt Queen Shadowbox

Hi everyone! I am super excited to share that my little shadow box is featured over on Canvas Corp blog today! As you know I love creating with diecuts but they can a little expensive if not on sale or if you are lucky enough to find them on clearance. When I do purchase them I always try to think of other possible uses besides the obvious use the diecut is intended for and this is the case with the House Gift Card Holder Diecut. I had purchased these cute printables from Lisa’s Altered Art on Etsy and I had wanted to use an image or two in some type of shadow box. Then I had the bright idea that I could use the House Gift Card Holder and the Make it 3D diecuts to make my own shadow box. For instructions and photos you can find the post HERE

Eileen Hull’s New Diecut Release

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project for Eileen Hull’s November Art with Heart Challenge.

 Eileen has new diecuts called Stitchlets out this month and let me tell you I am in LOVE!!!
It is a combination of sewing and paper crafts all rolled into one! I started with the Embroidery Hoop diecut which I cut out twice with mat board. I spritzed with Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist and I laid it the hoops off to the side to dry. (I didn’t spray the circles that are in the center of the hoops since I won’t be using them). Also I inked the “closure”/top of the hoop with silver ink.

Next I cut out flowers and leaves from felt with the Buttons, Border and Trim diecut. The pink flowers I layered four per flowers and tried off with cross stitch thread.
I layered two leaves and tied off with thread and the yellow flowers I actually cut it to make a spiral. I started by rolling the petal around each other until the center (two button holes) is left. I then add glue to that and pinch that to the bottom of the flower.  The border stem with leaves I cut from cardstock. I cut two leaves from that inked edges and shaped and added to the yellow flowers. 
The larger hoop I tied various lace and some ric rac to the bottom. I drew a half circle from the larger hoop onto a double sided cardstock, cut out, used a decorative punch on the straight edge, inked the edges and then cut down the center. I adhered to the backside of the hoop and then curled the edges with a pencil to created a pocket.

Next I cut netting a little bit bigger than the smaller hoop and wrapped around the hoop and then adhered to the backside of hoop. I inserted the smaller hoop into the larger one and added a little glue to the backside.  Next while the hoop is still turned over I sprinkled sequins on the netting and then adhered a second netting over that and trimmed off the excess. The second set of hoops I adhered over that.

 I arranged the flowers in the pocket and on the hoop and then glued down. I also used the Banners and Pennants diecut to finish off this fun and cut hoop.
Originally I hadn’t planned on adding sequins and netting to the projects but I really do think it turned out great…if I do say so myself. 😉 I do plan on making more of these…maybe   sequins with a Christmas/winter theme?
If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
