Material Girl


I am a material girl.

Show me a piece of fabric that has a beautiful print, a great texture or a unique grain and I am over the moon.

Sew (hehehe, couldn't help myself!) when Julia created a fabulous set for the Rummage Bin called "Sew Special"
I thought I had gone to heaven! It is full of big and little vintage images that are perfect for material girls!

For this project, I cut a regular 8 1/2" x 11" in half like I would for an A4 base. But instead of folding in half, I used my Scor-Pal to score fold lines at 2 1/2" on both sides which leaves a 3" space in the center. For the center insert I trimmed a piece of paper that is 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" and then made some "ribbon" from favorite pieces of fabric. The top one is a piece of my favorite ribbon from Creative Impressions, a yummy silk that looks great on everything! Some pins from Fancy Pants to hold them in place, and done! Just need to add a personal thought and then share!

I think this one is going to my mom for helping the girls and I make some aprons the other day! We had a great time, and she is an awesome seamstress!

Happy Saturday friends!

Love this, Becky!! The colors of your ribbon look so wonderful with the craft. Love the stamped lace trim on the trifold card, too. I'm thinking this would be a great way to give a little crafty gift to the ladies in my ATC club. TFS!
