"Happy Fall Y'all"

This was a big project because I did two sets. Lots of little pieces, so lots to detail for me. I love how it turned out. Perfect for Fall photos.

Lots of Pieces

I normally just show photos of my finished work, but today, I thought I'd share some before and after photos.

Many people are unfamiliar with what exactly a paper piecing is. A paper piecing is a combination of many different colors of cardstock shapes, that are cut out, and pieced together. Before they are pieced together, each piece is hand detailed. Once all of the pieces are glued together, the piece is ready for your scrapbook pages or handmade cards.

My favorite part of the process is the detailing, right down to the tiny details in the eyes. The pieces take on their own personality, with each individual crafter's style. Here are a couple of before and after photos of some sets I had worked on today:

What a Zoo!

When I take my kids to the zoo, they always look forward to seeing the giraffes. These two sets are perfect for those zoo photos.



Going to Grandma's

I decided to make a girl version of this set and used some cute prints on her shirt and suitcase. Loved how this one turned out!

Christmas Apron Card


I love the whole concept of creating paper crafting projects that look like aprons. Gives your project a little more "homemade" appearance. I used this week's freebie pattern at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs to create this Christmas greeting card. 

I've added some fabric trim and ribbon. Chipboard snowflakes by K & Company. The sentiment is stamped and created using heat embossing powder. Eyelets were added for the ribbon at the top of the apron. 


Thank you to Little Scraps of Heaven for such a sweet pattern!
