CPC: Quilter’s Christmas Sampler

As a guest designer over at Craft Project Central for the moth of October, I’m happy to show off all the other projects available this month.  Today’s project is brought to you by Sandy Mott.  Get ready and get cozy for Sandy’s quilted tutorial.


What quilter wouldn’t love this receiving this Quilter’s Christmas Sampler to adorn their sewing room wall at Christmas?! This 12″ x 12″ sampler looks as if it’s made of fabric and will delight any person who loves to sew. Quilters, stampers, and crafters of all kinds have a lot in common – an appreciation of handmade projects made with love and patience. This sampler is no exception. Make one for your favorite friend who quilts/sews and “warm” their heart!

CPC: Birthday Memories Supply Box & Gift Bags

I am a big fan of Stampin’ Up’s Birthday Delivery suite and today’s Craft Project Central tutorial by Buffy Cooper highlights these lovely products so well!  I hope you are inspired to try out the projects posted so far – but more is still coming!


Paper crafters often have friends and family who need a last-minute card for a birthday, and, of course, they usually ask for one when you have the least amount of time to make it. Then there are those times when you remember a co-worker’s birthday as you’re running out the door and don’t have time to make a card. In this tutorial, you’ll make a box to hold birthday supplies, and we’ll use the Birthday Delivery Bundle – complete with the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Stamp Set, Birthday Friends Framelits Dies, and Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper – to create coordinating cards, gift card envelopes, tags, and gift bags. This box is very easy to put together, so you may want to use an extra pack of the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper to make a set for a gift.

Remember to subscribe to Craft Project Central for the month of October to get this and other wonderful tutorials!

Tic Tac Toe, Three in a Row: #tttc018


For this card I drew inspiration from the left diagonal.

Which three in a row will you choose for your project?  Grab your creative cap, whatever supplies you have on hand and come play with me at TTTC!


Pigs can fly!  At least they can in this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Our board has plently of options for cute and creative cards!  This piece is actually a decor item for a customer of mine who loved the flying piggy (who doesn’t) but wanted the sentiment modified for a baby boy’s nursery.  This tic tac toe board was a perfect fit!  

I also used my Hand Lettered stamp set for the first time to really make the “he did” stand out.  If you don’t have this set and like to custom create sentiments  – get it!  The stamps really do line up and connect to look like handwirting.
