Make It Monday #70 Papertrey Ink

Yay I get to play along with Make It Monday with Papertrey Ink this week too! :) So today they asked us to incorporate a sort of quilting technique using first I was super intimidated and thought "Man, I can't do that!" But as I was watching the video, I started thinking..."well I may as well give it a go and see what happens." :) While I think with practice and some trial and error I may get a bit better at it, here is my first go...

 This is the fabric I used. It was left over from making the leaf props for a dance class at the studio where I work. :)
 Here is the finished product. :) PTI Products: Fine Linen and Smokey Shadow patterned pack and card stock, Notebook Page die, Double Ended Banners die, and Mat Stack #3 stamp set.
 The button is American Crafts and the Floss is from my stash. The bling is Michael's brand and the edge punch is EK Success.
Here is a side shot so you can see the "quilting" effect. I didn't have any foam so I cut three circles using my Spellbinders circle dies (that's also the same set I used to cut the bigger negative hole) and adhered them together with foam tape. :)

Thanks for looking, hope you like it. :) I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment if you wish. :)


  1. Cool! Very creative. I'm loving all your crafts thus far. I'm inspired!

  2. What a symphony of stripes! They look great with that quilted center motif with the button--nice job!
