Back from Convention

I’m back from Convention and so excited to share everything with you.  Convention was fabulous as usual.  Of course there were tons of great ideas.  I did my swaps again this year so I thought I would share them with you.  I was in charge of three different swaps this year: a fabric swap using the Big Shot, a 3D swap and a 12 x 12 Double Scrapbook Layout.  So far I have the fabric swaps up so you can check them out.  Just image how much fun you could have making these projects with your own Big Shot.  I’d love to show you how just give me a call, plus you can check out all these great projects in person.

To see the fun swaps just click here. You can also find them under Samples-Swaps-Convention 2010.  Check backs so to see the great Hostess Promotion as well as the other swaps I got.

Sew Fun Quilting Weekend

Thanks so much for everyone who helped me to earn the Sew Fun Quilting Weekend.  I had a blast and learned so much.  I would love to show all of you how to make these awesome quilts.  If you want to learn let  me know.

So here’s the first quilt.  It’s the one I made for my husband.  It’s made with 10 by 10 square and then I cut out the small squares with the Big Shot Scallop Square Die.  This is the same die I used to make the baby quilt and the rag bags.  I will post more pictures after I get it quilted.  When it’s done and you wash it then the ends come up and and frey a bit like the rag bags.

This is the second quilt that I made.  This one is for me.  As you can see I tied in several of the same patterns.  They are both green, brown and white and then I added the pink to mine and the blue to his.  Mine is made with the Scallop Circle Die and Scallop Circle #2 die.  This one is really pretty when it’s quilted because all the circles just pop.  It’s also really easy to make and not very much sewing.  I just sewed the outside boarders and then glued on all the scallop circles.  I also found out that there’s something in the chemical make-up of our glue that makes it so that it doesn’t gum up the needle for the quilters and then washes out.

I made both these quilts on Saturday at the event, that’s cut sew and glue plus time to visit and eat.  I think what took the longest was deciding which patterns to put where.  I also made a quilt Friday Night and a baby quilt on Sunday.  I will post those later.

If you want to see the fun projects in person, be sure to stop by my booth at the Hyrum Star Spangled week on July 5th.

More Fabric Fun – Want it free? Ask Me?

I’ve have fallen in love with my Big Shot again.  Who knew fabric could be so fun.  So I had to share a few more projects with you.

First is my Flip Flops.  I was in the fabric store the other day and was talking to a girl.  She told me she had seen these cute flip flops with flowers on them and thought how cute it would be to make them.  Of course I loved the idea and knew how easy it would be to make them so I headed straight home to make my own.  If you would like some of your own it’s so easy.  You can buy the Big Shot or if you want to have a party I’d be happy to come and make some for you.  The flowers are so fun, because you can also put them in your hair, add them to a purse or a skirt or anything else you can think of.

Speaking of purses.  I’ve been having so much fun making new purses.  Here’s my latest one.  I even put in pockets on this one.  I’ve had lots of people ask me how they can make their own so I thought I’d give you three great ways to get one.

First I’m going to be doing a class.

I haven’t decided on a date yet, I will figure that out after I know who wants to come.  But I’m thinking it will be sometime in July.  The class will be just $5.00 however there are a few requirements.  First space will be limited.  You will only be able to make one purse with two outside side pockets.  The purse will be the same size as the one shown here.  Plus you will need to bring your own material, batting and sewing machine.  I will help you with everything else.

Second you can get one for FREE by hosting a workshop.

Yes I said FREE.  I will be making at least one, maybe more depending on how many parties I get.  I’m down to the end for earning my cruise to Alaska and I need a little help.  So I will be giving one away to one of my hostesses.  All you need to do is contact me to schedule your in-home party and you will be entered to win.  Now here’s the extra bonus.  You will get an extra ticket to win with every $100.00 in sales at your party as well as a bonus 5 tickets if you have a $400.00 party.  If you have a $1000.00 party you will get one for FREE.  Remember the retired list comes out June first so this is  a great time to have a party and help your friends and family get what they want before they are gone.

Third join my team.

I have loved sharing this idea with my customers and want all of my down-line to have it.  If you sign up before the end of June I will help you make one of your own, all you need to do is provide the materials.  Sign up by May 26th and I will provide the material for you.  Of course the best part about this option is you will get all the great products to get your business started and be able to start making money yourself.  Plus you will have the time of your life doing something you love.  Click here to learn more about joining my team.

Check out my Baby Quilt

I just had to share.  I made this cute quilt for my friend that’s having a baby (I’m going to have  hard time giving it away though.)  I made it with our scallop square die cut for the big shot.  It was so easy I couldn’t believe it.  This is coming from someone who hadn’t sewn in 14 years and I often claimed that I couldn’t sew a straight line if my life depended on it.  I’m amazed at how easy it was and how much I love it now because of a little bit of instruction.

Remember if you want to learn more you can come to my Open House on Saturday from 10:00 – 2:00.  You can find more details in an early post or give me a call.  Please feel free to bring a friend.
