Allie's Twilight Bday

A good friend of ours has a magnificent daughter. Please see her web site and donate if you can. Operation a sister's love She makes fleece blankets for kids in the Children's Hospital. So far she has made around 153 and counting.

Well today is her birthday! Oh to be 13 again. She is in love with the movie Twilight. I made this bag for her using my cricut. My DD is the great model. :)

Fabric cutting is actually very easy. Use heat and bond on the back. Then place on a new mat with a new blade and off you go. Settings: blade 4, speed max and pressure max. Cut like butter. Simply iron on designs and it's done.

Prom night missing man

For a recent swap I was supposed to do a prom couple. I missed the word couple. In the end here is the missing man. He was cut at 4" and real dial off. Using PDDU and design studio.

Everyone of my dolls went postal a few days ago. Will post the returned ones.

Wedding ABC swap

This swap is a wedding coffee table book. The special twist is every letter of the alphabet is represented. I had F for Friends and Family and Z for zoom of bride and groom. I choose to leave room for other people to decorate with specialize embellishments to go along with the wedding. I made a total of 56 pages (28 for each letter, plus front and back cover).

Most everything was made with cricut machine. A few stamps and markers. I made a total of 112 1.5 inch paper dolls. That was a challenge in it's self. Not used to working with something so small. I also cut doves with a punch. My pages will hold either a 3 x5 or a 4 x 6. Will update when I get the others back.

New blog name!

During our card class last week we all shared some of our hobbies. I shared some of mine was collecting Mary Moos and other cow stuff. My amateur radio call sign is K9MOO. I guess I am obsessed with cows. Tho I do not have a lot of actual cows, I have a lot of cow stuff.

Since crafts are a new hobby a lady next to me came up with The Crafty Cow. I thought that was so cute. So I changed my blog name to it.
