Sew Crafty Friday


It's time for 'Sew Crafty Fridays' at Shereen's blog. Stop by to see what everyone is working on and add your craft project to Mr.Linky.



This is a guest book I made for my aunt's 70th birthday. It was a little rushed as I only found out at suppertime last Friday that they didn't have one. The party was on Saturday, so I had to do it up pretty fast. This was our gift to her.
I had a 6"x6" album on hand so used it for the book. I took pictures at her party too and, I will scrapbook the highlights to add to the album. I made pages to fit it by quartering a sheet of 12"x12" 'confetti cream' paper. The album was blue so I used a navy pen to make lines for the names and, added the word 'Guests' and some party stamps.

These are some 'Thank you' cards I made.

I am really liking the red and yellow together.

Wow, it looks great. So you made up the lines on the paper? It really does look like it came like that. What a nice gift. So did you stamp each and every little dot on the Thank You cards? I'm with you, the red and yellow go well together. I can't wait for you to share how you do a card. I saw some cardstock the other day and wondered if that was what you used to make your cards. Thanks for joining us today.
