Sew Crafty (Digital Layout + Sewing Project)

© BasicGrey

Hi all! Just posted a new video for BasicGrey (it’s at the bottom of this post), this time using the Perhaps Digital Collection (Starter Kit and Borders) and the Kraft Journaling Spots.

I’ve totally been using all my iPhone photos for scrapbooking pages for the last year or so. I don’t think my big DSLR camera has been used for photographing anything other than cards and pages for almost a year. Shhh! Don’t tell! As I said a few weeks ago, I love my iPhone apps! So, this page has a couple iPhone photos. :)

Since starting to sew a few months ago, I’m finally piecing together my first quilt! Just strips of polka dot fabric. No pattern really. Just random strips. :) I ended up ordering a HUGE die for my Big Shot machine that cuts fabric strips that are the size of jelly roll strips (2.5″ wide). I bought mine from since they were having a sale, but you can get the die from Create For Less for nearly the same price I paid. Just be sure to get the cutting pads, too. This sucker is LONG! 26″ long to be exact. You’ll need the longer cutting pads.

Anyway, I cut all my strips from this quilt in about 7 minutes! It was so slick! The die can cut up to 6 layers of fabric at once. So glad I bought it! Especially since I’m not so good at cutting fabric yet. I don’t think I would have attempted something like this without having that die.


The polka dot fabric I used is a bunch of Michael Miller Ta Dots fabric. I ordered this fat quarter bundle from an awesome seller on Etsy. Highly recommend her store, Fabric Shoppe. Super fast shipping. I used the yellow dots from the fat quarter bundle for a different project. Otherwise they’d be in this quilt, too. I was able to get six 2.5″ wide strips from each fat quarter. There was a bit of excess leftover that I might use for a small block on the back of the quilt.

In the photo on the digital page above, Mannie is sitting on top of the quilt (he didn’t stay long, naughty kitty!). Here’s a better photo of the beginnings of the quilt. It will most likely be a baby quilt. Don’t know anyone expecting a baby real soon, so if you’re a friend or family member and you haven’t told me you’re expecting yet, pipe up! It could be yours! LOL!

In the photo you can also see the small ironing board I use. And a bit of the little travel iron I use, too. :)

Love x 8

Hi all!

Just popping in to share my latest page that I made for BasicGrey. This page is extremely personal for me because this is the first time I’ve used pictures of Ashlynn. Just couldn’t do it before, ya know? It was nice to look through pictures again, though. To remember her. :)

Anyhow, I used patterned papers from BasicGrey’s Black Tie collection pack (a reprinting of a SUPER popular collection from yesteryear). For a limited time, you can get the collection pack for $7. Sweet!


NOTE: At the time of this posting, YouTube has some sort of glitch causing the videos to squish to one side and put a white box on the right side. It’s super weird. I only noticed it in Safari. So, if you’re using Safari, you might switch over to Firefox to see the video. :)

Hi all!

I still absolutely love doing month-in-review pages. And I’ve been enamored with iPhone photo apps recently, so it’s made finding photos of my everyday life so much easier! In fact, today I recorded an episode of Paperclipping Roundtable and the topic was mobile photo photos. Perfect! I know my fair share about photo apps. I’ll do a post about my favorite iPhone photo apps tomorrow, so watch for that. :)

Anyhow, for this page I used a bunch of BasicGrey digital product, including the new text borders. I loved using these quotes for the borders! I hope you will, too! :)

You can see all the supplies used at the class page. Enjoy!
