Sew Happy....


Stampin' UP!® is coming out with a whole suite of sew cute stamps, fabric, paper, and accessories!
A Little sneak peek of "oh SEW Suite", from the, soon to release Occasions Mini.
This cabinet, no longer have it BOO HOO), was For the Inky Angels & Inked Blessings X-mas party.
Found the cabinet at the thrift store filled with Linkin-logs, for only 2.00$ CHA CHING Again!

Here's some Deets....

Painted it here and there with brown and green craft paint, then applied, with sponge brushes, Aileen's Tacky Glue to these spots in one direction and immediately with the top coat color in another direction.
Worked like a dream and cheaper than the actual crackle paint.


Pin cushion section, using some Sweet Stitches fabric and the Sew Suite Stamp set.


Buttons and more section,
and a little clothes line, really can hang some fabric Samples and more from it.


Scissor Section, this is hanging by a wooded piece and a fun button on top.
Stamped the Tape measure from the set for a little accent.
The tape measure clear stamp is very long and must be put diagonally on a block.
When you get this set...of which I know you will. You will see what I am talking about.☺


A miniature cross and cork board.

Some thread and Cross stitch floss to use on your projects.
The Whole cabinet is use-able.
* just a slight note...there is no sewing on this, it is all the
Sweet Stitches fabric, Anywhere glue stick, and a Hot Glue Gun☺
Alicia C. an avid sewer, stole this awesome piece, and it could not have gone to a better home.
I thought about saving and entering it in the 2011 Artisan Awards. But have decided not to enter this time.
I'm terrible at keeping works of art a secret and not sharing.
So I will share away....
Have a Great Weekend

I don't sew but my son does. I could make something a little more MANly for him. And I could make an altered box for myself 'o)

Beautiful box! I love, love, love this stamp set. Which block did you need to place the measuring tape stamp diagonally on? I have not decided yet whether to get this in wood or clear for that very reason.

Subscribing to your blog now so I don't miss out on any of your gorgeous work!
