It's Official!

I finally joined the Stampin up team! I am so excited. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. Most of the stuff I have posted on this blog have been made with Stampin up stuff. I love that all of their products coordinate with each other. I you have any interest in doing a part let me know! (Hint: You usually end up with a bunch of FREE stuff!)

Car seat Covers!

My sister-in-law asked me if I could make her a car seat cover for her baby boy, who will be arriving in the next week or two. So I stole my sister's and figured out how it was made. It was so fun to make, and fairly easy.
I did two different fabrics for the front and back, but you could certainly do the same on both sides.

Her sister saw the blue one and wanted a pink one for the baby girl that she just had a couple of weeks ago! Which turned out so cute!

My favorite part of the whole thing is the cute button that is on the straps. I got one of those button covering kits because I couldn't find any large buttons that I like well enough to put on them, and I ended up liking these a lot more than a regular button.

Client Box

This is another client box that I did for the same friend, and I had someone ask me how much I sell them for...$14 and I can make it say what ever you want it to...clients, recipes, contacts...
It is so much more fun to look at that a plain black book with people's names and phone #'s :)

I just can't get enough!

I have been making aprons for a friend to sell at her salon! Hopefully everyone else thinks they are as cute as I do. This is probably my favorite apron. I love the colors of the fabric together! And here are a bunch more picture of different aprons. Enjoy!

Client Box

I made this for a friend who is a hair stylist. She wanted a cute box to put all of her clients names and phone numbers in. I have made a bunch of these, but used them as recipe boxes. I think I like this one too much! I don't know if I can give it away:) I just bought the box from Roberts Crafts. They have all different sizes and shapes. Then I found the cute zebra paper at Hobby Lobby. The "clients" letters are stamped with craft ink and then embossed with embossing powder. If you have never used embossing powder before, you should try it. You just pour it on the wet ink and heat it with a heat tool that is basically a blow dryer.

When you adhere the paper to the box, just make sure you use tacky tape so it sticks really well. You don't want the paper to fall off:) I didn't take a very good picture of it, but there is a black handle on top and I tied a bunch of coordinating ribbon to it!
