HomeMade Saturday - Raggedy Ann 25"

Hi all, I am here to share with you a sewing project I've been working on for a month to six weeks.  About two years or slightly more my niece asked me if I would make another Raggedy Ann doll for her oldest daughter, Julisa as she applied make-up to her 15" doll and didn't like the doll....

So I decided to make a 25" doll for replacement and here is pics of the doll....

Doll w/out her hair


Finished project.  

and the tag:

Ragdolls by Scrappy .  Printed and cut using my Silhouette Cameo and Studio DE software.  Actually, I loaded file into my Make the Cut software, put all the pieces together to form the Raggedy and saved as a png file so I could print and cut (or if I prefer, print than cut on the Cricut Explore.)

Using Inkscape and Studio DE I created a little tag as a card, so my sister and I could sign the inside.  I know there will be a happy 10 year receiving this doll by the end of this week.  And I will be cutting and sewing together another 25" Raggedy Ann doll for her 3 yr old sister.  

Thank you for visiting with me and happy crafting.  Enjoy spring wherever you are and be safe.

Today's posting is a Mini-photo/Journal Album I am creating for my granddaughter and family and utilized the image from Scrapping With Lisa Designs 

And here is my project:

Basically this will be a Journal/Photo Album of the great-grandkids.  I've included a baby from another file in this project as my granddaughter is expecting a baby girl on July 4, 2015.  Don't want to leave out the baby.  

The edges of front cover not covered (not sure I will cover it with washi tape or paper) because I have not completed the inside of the cover.  The pages will include birth, birthdays, holidays and there will be pages or tags for journaling.  

Cardstock and design paper from my Stampin! Up stash, the hearts came with a card kit and ribbon a gift from a friend in Canada.  I used Prismacolours and Bic Markers for coloring along with one Copic marker for the skin coloring.  It will be bound using The Cinch from We R Memory Keepers.

Thank you for taking time to visit with me and may you have a blessed day.

Challenge #52 - Spring Theme

Spring has sprung and brings the golfers out to play.  Son-in-law has birthday this month, and he occasionally goes to play golf so created a 'bendy-card' for him.  Here is the file that was used to create this card;

I used the golf cart, golf bag and where you swing the ball to from this file; and here is my card...

I purchased the Silhouette Studio cut file for the bendy card envelope set sloped design by Samantha Walker. And it wasn't too bad to cut out and design.  All cardstock from my personal stash.  The golf bag is actually print and cut using my Silhouette Studio DE and the rest cut out with my Cameo.  I did create a button/flair with my son-in-law's age and placed in the corner.

The sentiment 'happy birthday' was stamped using my newest tool. MISTI - a stamp alignment tool by My Sweet Petunia - a life saver for me.


and if the ink comes out blotchy or light, without moving the card or stamp you can re-stamp until you are satisfied.  I love this little tool and will be using it more.  I am planning to convert my wood-mounted stamps down to the cushioned stamp and placing on EZ Mount foam and than presto, I have acrylic type stamp to use.  Hopefully less storage as well.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today, and head on over to Creative Cutting Challenges and play along with us in the Spring Theme Challenge.  Happy crafting to all.
