Keeping Warm with Therm O Web

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

It seems like once Halloween is over, time just has a way of gathering momentum and zipping by. The holidays will be here before we know it. And if you are already feeling short on time, and are looking for holiday gift giving ideas, then be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog. All month long, the team has tons of quick, easy, last-minute, and do-able projects to share with you.

I don’t know about you, but that sweet little snowman face kinda melts my heart a bit. Love snowmen for the holidays, and all winter long, too. Such a fun way to add some cheer in the cold winter months. And better yet, this easy, no-sew project can be completed in under 15 minutes. A definitely plus when the rush of the holidays begin.

I tend to grab up wooden frames whenever I get the chance, and keep them on hand for last minute project ideas like this. They’re usually readily available at second-hand stores for just a few cents, or can be found unfinished at your big box craft stores for very little cost, too. Then just remove the glass and add your favorite papers and embellishments. This is the Snow Patrol collection by Simple Stories and sequins by 28 Lilac Lane, and an adorable Therm O Web fleece snowman.

I added vintage buttons and a big carrot nose. A little hand-stitching for the mouth. Therm O Web Fabric Fuse tape easily keeps fabric, even thick fleece like this, in place. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Or, you can find this holiday cutie ready-to-go in my AudOnes Prims Holiday Shop, too!

Mother’s Day Wishes with Therm O Web

Happy Wednesday, Crafty Friends!

Today I have a Mother’s Day card to share that I made for the Therm O Web blog. This card features a bit of stamping, a bit of trendy Deco Foil, and a quick and easy inlay die cut technique using iCraft adhesive tape.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil Mother'sDayCardMy mom loves flowers, as most mother’s do. You should see her gorgeous yard. When I picture her house, I almost always envision the front courtyard. My dad built a beautiful wooden arbor there, and wisteria was planted at the base of the poles. Fast forward many years later, and now that wisteria has filled the entire front patio. And when it’s in bloom, those amazing blossoms hang down from the canopy like some magical fairy wonderland.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil Mother'sDayCard2My bedroom at home looks out over the courtyard. And last time we visited, the wisteria was in bloom. So many happy memories. I’m sure it will come as no surprise that these rich colors of deep lilac purple and green, well… they make me think of home. And although these flowers aren’t wisteria, I think they will do. 😀

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil Mother'sDayCard3These pretty flowers are from Stampin’Up’s Bloom with Hope set. I stamped the images in black ink, doing a bit of masking to add the greenery around the flowers. And then colored them all with Copic markers. I die cut the panel with My Creative Time’s Stitched Square dies, and then created a matching frame from the dies, too. The outer frame has been embellished with Therm O Web Deco Foil in the gorgeous new Lilac color. Inlay die cutting keeps the framework seamless.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb DecoFoil Mother'sDayCard4I added some pretty BasicGrey patterned paper, and a button from the new 28 Lilac Lane collection. A stenciled background, and a quick sentiment strip finish the design. You may notice I did something a little different with the card base, too. I’ve got the full tutorial, including details on the foiled frame and inlay die cutting, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back a day early tomorrow for the special Buttons Galore & More 28 Lilac Lane Blog Hop. Hope to see you all then!

Hello Sunshine with 28 Lilac Lane

Hello Friends! A very happy Friday to you!

I am super excited to share my fun project with you today! I have got a sweet and sunny, spring-inspired fabric project today that features some fabulous new embellishments from my friend, May Flaum, at Craft with May. I think I may have mentioned my serious love for buttons once or twice before, right? Well May’s new product line through Buttons Galore & More, called 28 Lilac Lane, is filled with the most gorgeous buttons and notions, in a whole rainbow of color. There’s buttons, of course, and sequins, as well. Beads and pearls, charms and trims, too. All packaged in the most adorable tins and bottles and kits ever.

To me, there’s something nostalgic about buttons. Both of my grandmothers were sewers and quilters, and I can remember being fascinated with their button collections growing up. Although I’m not the sewer that they were, I do love to play with fabric. And I still love buttons to this day. So when May asked if I’d be interested in playing with her 28 Lilac Lane line, I jumped at the chance. Such gorgeous colors, and amazing variety… and a quality that can’t be beat.

Now that spring has truly sprung here in North Carolina, and everything is in bloom, I’ve got flowers on the mind. So I created some sweet and shabby fabric flowers to dress up a few simple cotton pillow tucks. And finished them off with bright yellow buttons from the new Hello Sunshine Embellishment Bottle. A little home accent for spring and summer that can be tucked just about anywhere.

I’ve been having fun experimenting with dying my own fabrics with Distress Inks, which I’ve done here with the flower petals and bows. I thought if it worked on paper, why not try with fabrics? I’m really happy with the results, with that great shabby distressed look that I love so much. And those buttons are just the icing on the cake, aren’t they? Want them in every single color.

28 Lilac Lane
Speaking of colors, here’s just a peek of May’s 28 Lilac Lane collection. These are from the embellishment bottles, Hello Sunshine, Pumpkin Spice, and Minty Fresh. Aren’t they beautiful?

28 Lilac Lane products are available now at Ellen Hutson, LLC, and are coming soon to Scrapbook.com. Be sure to check out May’s blog for lots more project ideas, too.

And if you’re interested in my Sunny Prim Pillow Tucks, you can find them in my Spring Shop here.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Wish Upon a Starfish with Sizzix

Helloooooo sweet friends! Happy Monday! Hope you all had an amazing weekend. We have been having a wonderful time here, and today things are just starting to get back to a normal routine. Last week, we took my big graduate off to Myrtle Beach for five luxurious days of surf and sun. We lounged on the beach. Bobbed in the waves. Swam in the pools, and visited the aquarium. I do miss it already, though it’s good to be home, too. So today, I thought I’d bring a bit of the beach to all of us with a fun nautical project I made awhile back for the Sizzix blog. But first, I wanted to share some fun news with you.

This summer, I am so excited to announce that I will be joining May Flaum, from Craft with May, and an amazing line-up of guest instructors for Camp Scrap 2015! Camp Scrap is a month-long online class including over 40 new projects, five hours of video lessons and so much more. There will be cards, mixed media projects, layouts, and technique based tags… a little bit of everything… and you can sign up for the entire camp, or just bits and pieces. I know you’re going to love it. May is awesome! And check out this roster of guests: Ashli Oliver, Nancy Damiano, Nichol Magouirk, Paige Evans, Tammy Tutterow, Wanda Guess, Ashley Horton, Lydia Evans, and little ‘ol me. Class starts July 1st, and I hope you will join us! For all the details on Camp Scrap 2015, including class descriptions and registration, please click here.

And now onto my project for today! A fun seaside gift box made with the adorable Sizzix Mini Pizza Box die, and BasicGrey’s nautical Adrift collection.

AudreyPettit Sizzix WishPizzaBox2
This Mini Pizza Box die makes such a fun gift box, and it really is a great size for packaging all sorts of gifts and treats. Love that you could as easily fill it with jewelry as you could a cookie, for a big gift, or a small gift, or the perfect anytime gift. And, it also fits gift cards, making this one seriously useful container.

Thanks so much for stopping by! The wifi connection wasn’t very good at the beach, so I’m a bit behind on blog visits….. but I hope to visit SOON! Have a great day!
