Elegant Shabby Purse

Howdy all!   It's been a very busy week between spring cleaning and trying to get my DT projects done.  I made this purse using the Elegant Shabby Clutch kit from

This is made from a Dollar Tree Placemat.  The only thing I used extra  was the sequins trim on my handles and one extra pearl dangle applique on the top side of the purse. Oh... and some fabric to make the extra pockets.    Each side is gorgeous!
Oh yes I did include 3 extra pockets!!
 This one is on the outside of the purse  and I made two on the inside of the purse.
One is for my cell phone and the other one is on the opposite side inside and is a bit larger.
Above shows the extra white beaded applique that I purchased from
I had so much stuff left from my kit.  I'm sure nothing will go to waste!
Thanks for stopping by!!! Happy Crafting!!

Elegant Clutch Kit Share

Pin Cushion Made From What??

Howdy all!  I've been extremely busy spring cleaning. UGH!!!   I had to take some time this weekend to make another Dt project for Creating With Details  Store.  By looking at this you would never know that it is a pin cushion.  The images that I used are from   I printed the images on fabric and then sprayed them  with a clear sealer. (experimenting to make sure that they will not fade with time)

Here is my recipe:
Toilet paper roll with ribbon rolls
Gold /White Braided Cord
White Ruffled Trim with Gold trim and beads From Creating With Details  Store Unfortunately out of  stock
Pin Pleated Ruffle
Flower Spray is from Pat Catan's , small flowers from Wal Mart or Jo Anns
Sequins from my stash as well as small white pearl trim, gems, Stickles
I did add a touch of 18 KT. Gold to the edges of the white leaves.

I also added a little bit of gold tinsel to the white flower centers and Gold and Silver stamens that have been in my stash for a long time. Gold Stickles was added to the edges of the butterfly wings.

Now a peak of the back!
The pink rose trim in the center was from a DT Kit from Creating With Details  Store  unfortunately not in stock at this time. The Gold/White trim is mentioned above.  I made all of the flowers  and stick pins too!
Thank you all for stopping by!  I hope someone is inspired.  Happy Crafting!!!  God Bless You All!

Fabric Journal Finished

Howdy all!   Let me tell you one thing, "This was quite an adventure creating my first fabric journal." I swear once I started I couldn't stop.  Honestly don't know why on earth I waited so long. 

Many products that I used are from  Be sure to visit the store and find the beautiful rose buds, long dangle trims, sari ribbon, laces and gems.   Many of my roses and Yo-yo flowers are handmade by me.  

The pin above this cherub is a gift from one of my aunts.  The butterflies are by Prima and I colored them with Inka Gold Graphite and Rose Quartz.  The pearl sprays are from my stash as well as many laces and crochet doilies.  Below is my centerfold:

More dangle trim, applique, tassel, flower gem, Gemstone applique.  I used some of my own bridal appliques, fringe trims and laces also on this centerfold.   I got the images either from Pinterest or the Graphics fairy and printed them on fabric. 

Next a look of my last two pages
The pink ruffled trim surrounds this gorgeous angel that I outlined with flat iridescent pearl trim and round iridescent pink pearl trim.   My pocket page is made using a solid fabric doily. I ran ribbon through the gorgeous trim and attached a homemade flower.  The hankie is from my stash and I applied a beautiful pearl cluster.

Finally the back page!

The pink rose trim is from my first Dt Kit.  Now a view of the spine with my handmade chunky charm! Applique  above the charm was left over from a  DT kit.
Must show a side view!

And a view of my  ribbon closure.

Fabric Journal Part One

Howdy all!  I finally took the plunge and made my very first fabric journal.  I've been admiring these journals for the past few years and collecting lace and doilies. Being a DT for has really inspired me to take the plunge and " Just Do It!"

Once I got started  on this journal it was hard to stop.  However ; I will  only debut the very front page today.  The outside lace trim is from as well as the flowers and dangles (under the image, sorry out of stock),  Corner dangles, this one also, leaves and decorative lace by the flowers.  The rhinestone trim can be found here.

I think I got the image from Graphics Fairy or Pinterest.  I printed the image on fabric.  My journal is originally made with upholstery fabric sandwiched with batting. You can see what it looked like in my You Tube tutorial and how I put this together.

Wedding appliques from my stash are also used as well as rose gimp, lace, gems w/pearls, love gem. and the chunky charms are made by me. There are also Tim Holtz tiny flowers on the appliques.  And....there are actually nine layers on this top page.   You will see when the journal is done it is very thick.  I had to attach satin ribbon to keep it close with a bow!
