Petal Cone Carrot

Good Morning all!  Here is the top note in yet another keen way of using it.  Instead of folding over the petals
I folded them in to make the carrot!   Take a close look at the carrot,  I used the Sanded large background stamp stamped in
Peach Parfait.  After you assemble the die use a dauber with the Peach Parfait and shade around the carrot.  At the top of the carrot
punch two holes across from each other so you can thread the ribbon through.  Cut 3 pieces of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon cut at 7 inches long and feed all three pieces through  the hole and tie a knot and decorate the front.   You are done!  xoxo

Big Shot Daisy Cell Phone Holder

How cute is this!  This was made with the Big Shot Top note die and the Daisy Die. 
Cut two of the Top Note dies and three of the daisies.  I cut a handle that is 7 in. and stitched up the sides.  Attached the handles first to the inside of the top notes, then fold over and sew up all sides except the top.  Stitch all daisies together and add cordouroy button.  Whaaa Laaaa!  This can  also be used for an Ipod too or any gift.    Have fun sewing ladies!  xoxo

Welcome Courtney from Scraps and Scribbles!

Hi all!  I'm so happy to be here visiting.  Julie has been kind enough to let me come invade her blog for the day.  Isn't that nice of her? : )

In case you're wondering who I am, my name is Courtney.  

I blog over at Scraps and Scribbles.  There you'll find a little bit of everything that I love-crafts, sewing, cooking, fashion, make-up and photography.  I'm a SAHM to one busy little 2-year-old and I've been happily married to my hunk of a hubby for over 5 years now. We live in the Sunshine State (aka Florida) and love it.  I've also recently started going back to school as a full-time student.  It's kicking my can and I don't really like it, but I'm almost done!

If you were to head over to my blog, here's a few of the things you might find:

Last fall, I made this interchangable wreath.  The embellishments are removable so you can change them as often as your whim does!

As I mentioned, I like to dabble in sewing and I love making knock offs!  This Anthro-inspired ruffle tee is one of my favorite sewing projects yet.

I also throw in yummy recipes into my regular line-up from time to time, just to spice things up a bit.  These surprise cupcakes were a big hit with my family-I'm sure they will be with yours, too.

I started a little herb garden on my porch last spring and made these silverware garden markers so I'd know what was what.  I'm getting ready to list some in my Etsy shop.

Thank you Julie for letting me stop by today!  I had a blast!  I hope you all come by Scraps and Scribbles and say hi!

Take the shovel and put it inside int he bag, add the hearts and tie with a ribbon.  Get on the computer onto your MDS and type I Dig You and print out.  Punch a circle punch 1 3/8 and a scallop punch.  Attach the tag to the bag and wahlah!  So stinkin cute!  xoxo

Many have emailed asking where to find the shovels,
