Tilda inspired designs

As some know, I have developed a love for Tilda doll and character. So I thought I would share a couple of things I created. Feel free to use them for personal use. Enjoy!

If you look carefully at the flowers and snowflakes

                                                                          you will see the Tilda connection!

I usually reserve this blog for digital and paper designs but if you wish to see my other Tilda related work please visit my other blog!

Sew what's new?

Sew glad you could sit a spell and see what I've been doing! Had to share my two little sewing machines made of paper! Even the needle! The only thing that isn't paper is the little bit of thread on the bobbin!

This amazing design comes from Cre8ive Cutz where you will find a number of creative and affordable svgs!

I used my Cuttlebug to create some embossing on some of the pink areas on the base. The drawer even opens! It is time-consuming but I still ended up making two of them!

I figured there was no reason I couldn't have a pink and polka dot machine.
However, if you want to see a refurbished sewing machine in pink check out this photo!

Standing Paper Dolls

So fun to see groups of these sweet are a few orders I've had in the past couple of months. They are used as place card holders. It's been one of my more popular designs.

I use my Cuttlebug to create the beautiful texture on the solid colored dresses.

Window Cards

So I saw a window die cut and thought it looked like a fun card project so I bought it and then began exploring what others were doing with it for inspiration.

I really love the dimensional effect of having the window appear open and adding flowers so this is my current summer inspiration. Perhaps it will inspire you, too!

 The flowers are from a Martha Stewart punch and the "hello" is a provo craft die cut

 More MS punches used here...the larger butterflies, the leafy branch behind them and the border on the card below.

 I used a punch to create the little white valance. The scene in the window came from an old calendar.
 I thought the paper dolls look so sweet with the cards, too!

The Belle of the Ball

I've been busy though my blog might not show it! So I will try to share a few of my projects from the past few weeks. These paper dolls have been one of my favorite new designs.

I was asked if I could adapt a ballerina design for a debutante event. So, I was excited to work something fresh. This adaptation would make them standing and could be used as place card holders.

 On my solid color dresses, I alternate the embossed panels with a plain one for contrast and texture.

 I figured I would eventually have someone want some guys to go with the gals so I created a basic fella to accompany the lovely ladies!

 My Paris themed dolls have been very popular
