think pink.

The new lawnscaping challenge is paper-piecing!


My daughter and I sat down to read "Pinkalicious" yesterday evening, and I think I still had pink on the brain when I made this:


Paper-pieced-pink-pigs... *history lesson: when we were really young, my sister swore up and down she wanted to be a pink pig when she grew up... they are so cute when they're little!*

I stamped the pig from lawn fawn's "critters on the farm" onto various patterned papers and cut them out and mounted them with foam squares.

I created a focal point of pigs (!) by stacking them onto a strip of white cardstock and tucking half of a decorative label shape on either end.



I glued that to a white mat, which I'd stamped with "schoolhouse backdrops" - also in pink, naturally!

The sentiment was created with "smitty's abcs".


Thanks for looking!

  2. I'm pink with envy, this so so cute!
    I'm a beginner sewer as well. I just got a sewing maching for my paper projects, but can't resist pretty fabrics. I actually made my daughters Halloween costume, which is a Betty Boop dress and it looks great. I think so anyway.
