Lots to show you and talk about today....in my mad prep for leaving to CA I got a chance to do something fun and creative with this month's VIP set from My Favorite Things! Woohoo!
We are doing a blog hop to celebrate the day so if you are coming here from Patti's Blog you are hopping along just fine....If you are coming straight to my blog you may want to start at the beginning of this fun hop which is none other than the fabulous KIM!
What is VIP?
VIP is your one day chance to purchase this kit (which includes this awesome new stamp set) 2 weeks BEFORE it's official release! I know how I love to get the "new stuff" early!
Here is what is in the kit:

Bakery Blend Buttons
Bakery Blend Ribbons
Sugar Glass Glitter
Sakura Clear Glaze Pen
Plus receive a FREE Clearly Sentimental about Food stamp set (value $9)
I had this tin from yummy Christmas goodies (that are now gone) that I decided was too perfect of a size to throw away! I had just about completed my card when I thought a utensil tin would be a perfect companion to my card! As you all know, I love to play with fabric and I decided while I was at it why not create a little video to show how I color fabric....more on that to scroll down....
Here is a close shot of the card. I used the petite papers from Webster's Pages. This patterned paper was PERFECT, as I covered over the image that was on my patterned paper with this image from "Lovin' from the oven". The only little accents that I added were the little scalloped valence that is at the top, I popped it up a little for dimension. I sewed some lace trim to the border and paper pieced her apron.
Here is a close shot of the image....I added a little of chocolate liquid applique to the rim of the bowl. I don't know about you but I am a messy baker...just like I am a messy crafter! LOL!
Here is a close shot of the tin. I measured the circumference of the tin and added 1 inch so that when I sewed it together I had a 1/2" seam allowance. The little plaid square was a scrap from somewhere...? I stamped and colored my image on fabric. The video below shows how I color fabric with copic markers. After coloring I cut it out with my nestability die and ran it through my creatopia to apply fabric adhesive to the backside. Peeled it off like a sticker and stuck it to my tin. I added a few buttons and chipboard utensils for accent and I was done!
Alright! You are not done yet....keep on hoppin' there is a lot of great stuff out there! Next on the hop is the fabulously talented SUSIE! Go and check her out!
I'm so excited for CA...I just received my class lists for the certifications and have a lot of familiar names on there....how fun! See you all there!
