My first Puddle Jumper

Isn't she cute? This is Daisy my first Puddle Jumper stamp! (=  I used a polka dot embossing folder on the pink background but, it's hard to see from the picture.  I also grabbed my new October Afternoon DP!  Love that stuff.  It's the paper that you don't want to use because your afraid you'll run out! LOL!

fabric flowers

  I  love fabric just as much as I LOVE paper! (=   These fabric flowers are fun, cute and easy to make and you don't have to sew a thing!  Just cut or tear strips of fabric - approx 1" x the longer the strip the bigger the flower.  I cut a circle of felt with my cuttlebug (you can just use scissors).  That is the base or bottom of the flower.  Tie a sm knot at the end of the fabric strip.  Add a drop of fabric glue to the center of your felt circle. Lay your knot down in the middle of the circle and just twist the fabric and circle around your knot.  Continue to add fabric glue to the felt base and twist until complete! 
These are great for cards, scrapbooking projects or they look adorable glued to barretts!!

I'm heading on a scapbooking weekened away.  I should have some fun layouts to share with you next week! (=  Enjoy your weekened!

(=  Enjoy your day!
