Rachelle here and I am up on the FD blog with my team mates
 sharing DT examples
for this week's Friday Challenge-String Art.
Take a look at
 
Frosted Designs
 and enjoy viewing what I created!

"I Am so Happy"
My girlfriend Misti & Russel's Wedding Day~May 3, 2014

It is all about String Art this week.
I went with fancy stitch around the entire bottom layer of cardstock.
Then I applied string/twine and tags in various areas of the design.

I created a mixed media background using several Prima stencils
along with a brick stencil. Then I applied mist and ink to get the
 pastel color texture.




I love working with layers so I applied them behind the bridal picture.
The journal reads:
"Misti is happy and ready for her beautiful wedding day
as the flower girl places flowers in her hair."


The small frame shows a picture of the flower girl which looks so sweet.
I enjoyed creating this design with my some of my Prima stash and colors.

I created this card so fast I hardly could believe I did.
I went with the card because my mother is in Heaven and since that time
these special days are a bit difficult.






 I really enjoyed creating the card 
as I went with the shabby chic style for this one.
I used trendy teal and pastel pink colors which are my faves.
Well that's it for this post!
I really hope this project inspires you to create and 
join in the challenge.

Love My Fabrics Project-Wall Holder!

 
Hi there crafters!
Rachelle here and I am up on the LMF blog today to share my latest
Love My Fabric project.
  This project is super simple and will add color and organization to your space.
This project is completely no-sew! You could easily modify it with a few straight stitches for a more personalized or practical product.
Let's take a look.

 
Fabric Wall Pocket Holder 
 
Materials needed:
Embroidery hoop-8 inch
  Fabric (2 coordinating)
 
 
 
 
 
Lay out your background fabric over your inner embroidery hoop.
 

Lay your pocket fabric, folded in half, over the background fabric.  You can place it half way in the middle, higher or lower, depending on what you plan to put in the pocket.
Now slip on the outer hoop and tighten.  Gently tug the fabric around the edges to make it taut inside of the hoop.  This is the part where you make sure you are happy with the placement of your pocket or how the print on your fabric is situated.  If you’d like, you can add a couple vertical stitches down the pocket for pencils or one in the middle to divide the pocket into two. This, of course, would be done before you place the fabric in the hoop.  When you are satisfied with it you can cut the excess fabric or tuck it behind the hoop.  Be sure to tighten your hoop real tight so that the fabric doesn’t slip out.



So that’s it!  Quick, huh? 
And so easy, not to mention clever. And since there is no glue involved, you could easily change out the fabric whenever!




Hang it on the wall and use it for notes, pencils, or outgoing mail.
 Sort important reminders, postcards or invitations.
I really hope this inspires you.
  I’m sure you will think of some interesting ways to use this holder.
That's it for this post.
Thanks for stopping by today!
 
Happy crafting!
