So I borrowed a stamp set from a friend called Baby Bear from Stampin Up. I needed 2 baby cards for new expecting parents, but I decided while I had the stamp set I would make extra for future needs. Therefore I made 4 New Baby Girl Cards, 4 New Baby Boy Cards, 4 New Neutral Baby Card (for parents who want to be surprised at delivery time), 4 Wedding/Anniversary Cards and 4 Christmas cards.
They are so cute!
So I have been working on a baby blanket for Scott to give a co-worker who is having a baby boy. Here is the pattern I used its FREE https://www.thestitchinmommy.com/2013/12/shell-stitch-baby-blanket-free-pattern.html however I used Lion Brand Pound of Love 2 x balls.
I increased the size of the blanket by doing 150 + 1 CH and 102 rows plus the trim. I could have done approximately 8-10 more rows to use up all the yarn (which I wish I had). It took about 20 min per row so about 34 hours plus the trim and measured 50″ x 58″……not bad for doing in front of the TV.
I hope the new parents like it.
A friend of mine became a grandmother ON MY BIRTHDAY so of course I had to make the little guy a gift. I made him this blanket, didn’t take too long to make but it was a great project to keep me busy at night while I watch TV.
I found the free pattern on Mikey’s web site called Crochet Crowd http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-happy-baby-blanket-pattern-tutorial/
It took me about 33 hours of crocheting within a week to make 63 rows but only did one row of edging, I would have preferred to do 59 rows and make 3 rows around the edging.
The ball of yarn was 1263 yards and this is all I had left…not bad.
I decided to made Canada Day cards to commemorate 150 years. I only made 8 so I had to limit who got them so if you didn’t get please don’t be upset….heheheh
I found the various svg on the internet and cut them out on my Silhouette.
Happy Canada Day everyone!

I decided to make some cards today because I really wanted to play with my new stamp set I won a few weeks ago called Everyday Hero. Since I have a few birthdays coming up I decided to make them all the same card therefore letting me also use my new stamping tool called Misti which was very exciting. If you don’t know what a Misti is then check out this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuqVubvpGNg
I hope the birthday people like them!
Here is the Everyday Hero stamp set from Stampin Up
This weekend I went to a Stampin Up event in Burlington called www.stamparama.com and I had a great time. I met some great woman and won some great door prizes. In fact I think I won enough stuff to cover the ticket which means I will be go to their next event on October 21, 2017, maybe you can join me!
Here are the cards we made.
On Saturday I took a class called Stamp Camp in Markham. It was my first time going and I had lots of fun. We made 10 cards and lunch was included. The next Stamp camp is Saturday Sept 23, 2017 if you’re interested in joining us.
