A friend at work asked me if I could make her a center piece for her friend's baby shower. I love to make center pieces and this one was pretty easy to do. She wanted something simple and her theme was nautical. Well CTMH had the perfect paperpack called Tommy. The colors matched perfectly with her invitations. What a coincidence. I used my cricut to cut out the shapes and hot glued them to wooden skewers and put them in the metal buckets. My co-worker said that they were a big hit at the baby shower and she plans to put them in her nursery. It is nice to know that our creations are going to be used over and over and not just thrown out after the event. TFL!

Base & Bling Style


Welcome to the Use Your Stash Blog Hop for the month of February, this month we are featuring CTMH fabric. if you have come from Joy's Blog then you are on the right track. For a complete list of hopping order head to Judy Faye's blog . Fabric is not a textile that we usually use but if you really think about it fabric comes in many shapes and forms. I make hair bows which uses ribbon, I crochet which uses yarn and I also do some sewing which use fabric. When I signed up for this hop I just shook my head and said what was I thinking. Well it turned out that working with fabric wasn't really all that hard. I made some fabric flowers that can be used for scrapbook layouts, cards and even a hairbow or two. Once I started to think about it I realized that just about anything I can make with paper I can make with fabric. I hope that you like my project. Now go check out what other great projects the other players made. TFL!
