PTI blog hop: april edition



This may just be the only card I have time to create this week, and mostly because I was able to deconstruct parts of Sofia's sewing party and re-fashion them, based on this inspiration photo:

I mean, how perfect that Nichole picked a photo of fabric, in pretty much the exact colors of the sewing party? hee.

I turned a 7-year-old's party into a sweet baby card:

I did leave off the bolder pink color,  and added some krafty goodness.  I created the fabric lollipop flower by stitching different sizes of pink gingham circles together, and added a felt "flower fusion" shape and a button top layer.    Other touches I love: the damask pattern on the banner, the clothespin embellished with a paper bow, and the sweet little "baby" tag.


In other-party news, I'm chugging along for Thomas' monster party this weekend and realized that I based the entire party around 2 stamp sets: PTI's "newsprint" background, and My Cute Stamps' "eeek! a monster" set.  How awesome is that!  I can't wait to show you everything :)

Thanks for peeking!
