Even more Base & Bling

Parker is attending his first, non-family, birthday party this afternoon...and to say that he is SUPER excited, would be an understatement!  The party is for a little girl (Rivka) from his Pre-K class.  I made her a head band & ring from the new CTMH Base & Bling line...and then decorated this skirt purse that I found at Walmart earlier in the week.  I hope she likes them!

The "R" was cut with CTMH's Art Philosophy.

Here are some of the products that I used to make these items:

Parker's Preschool Binder

I started this Kraft binder, for Parker, at my August weekend crop, and finally put the finishing touches on it at my September All-Day crop (yesterday). Check, check and check!!!!

He is officially in PreK this year and we've been working on his letter, numbers, colors, shapes, etc.   I wanted to make him a 'busy book' of sorts.....we do so much running around for his older sisters' activities, I am hoping that maybe this will keep him occupied for a minute or two.  One can dream, right?!?   

The cover decor & all the pages were made with the CTMH Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

I wanted the pages to be good & thick, because he is SO rough with things.  I cut two of every page, glued them together and then after I added the page content, laminated each one.  

I also cut two of ever image, one for the page and the extra which was laminated (and 'velcro-ed' - is that word?) separately so he can use it to "match".  

I store the pieces for each page, in plastic baggies, at the back of the album.

Let me know if you have any questions on how I cut or assembled any of the pages.

Chantilly Textiles...

I've been wanting to use the Chantilly textiles to make a utility apron...for a long, long time now.  Me, the gal who does very little sewing.  But, it kept nagging at cute those colors would be together, maybe a rolled fabric flower and some bling.  Always have to add the bling.  I am actually REALLY tickled that I did it.  I sewed something!  And it fits, it ties, the lines are straight (for the most part!)... I am pretty damn happy with myself.  Is it sad that this little utility apron makes me so proud?!?

Anyhoo...I still can't decide if I am going to add some flowers and bling.  I am kind of diggin' the basic look, but who knows what tomorrow (or the next day) will bring.
Product# Z1826
I added the Hollyhock Zipper Ribbon just below the cute is that ????

Product# Z1819

After all my back patting (to myself)...I must give credit where credit is due.  I followed this easy utility apron tutorial HERE!

More Base & Bling!

I am having so much fun w/ the new Base & Bling!  I'll be first thought, when I saw this in the new Idea Book, was Ugh!  Really?  But I have to tell you, it's been  pretty dang cool.  My wheels are turning...I am thinking Halloween themed necklace, Christmas/Holiday themed necklace....which, by the way, is SO NOT ME!  Am I am showing my age?

Maybe I'll set a new trend...screw the holiday vest & sweaters...everyone will be wearing Base & Bling!  I am sure that it will embarrass the heck out of my teenage daughters...which just might be even more of a reason to do it!  I'd say that I'll post picture of their eye rolling, but they won't even look at the camera for me anymore....ingrates!  I just keep telling myself that one day they'll thank me.....
