Blog of the Week : Nautical Themed Baby Shower

August 24th, 2011

This week’s Craft Blog of the Week is not so much a craft blog, but the blog author April  (who is an awesome photographer in the Houston area), is super duper crafty! She recently threw a baby shower for her Sister-in-Law that was fit for a Queen! Here are some of her photos of this awesome celebration. To see more, visit her blog: Life in Print.

Totally cute invitations! I love me a great invitation.Adorable banner and table. Those big fans are so much fun and the cake is too cute.

Bath Salt Party favors and a cute Entry/Guest Book table. This party had it all! And there is more… be sure to check out the rest of the photos including the awesome FOOD table. April sure knows how to party, and she’s a pretty great photographer too!

Craft Blog of the Week – Carly of Quiltville

February 15th, 2011

This week one of my friends sent me a link to this very inspirational quilting blog called Carly of Quiltville. I absolutely love her modern take on quilts, and her choice in fabric. Especially this beautiful quilt that she made with my Quite Contrary fabric from Riley Blake! (I’ll be doing a give-away of fat quarters sometime this week, so check back). Isn’t it so cute?

Here are a few more of her darling quilts:

Check out her blog for more inspiration. I know I feel inspired… I just need to learn how to quilt now! Are you a quilter? How did you get started?

Craft Blog of the Week + Blog Redesign!

February 9th, 2011

Okay I know its been more than a year that I’ve done one of these. But I now subscribe to so many awesome craft blogs, that It should be easy for me (ha!). With the new blog design (what do you think??) I’ve decided to be a little bit more pro-active about my blog. Its been like 15th priority in my life, but I really love updating it, I just never make time for it. So I’m going to steal 30 minutes here and there to keep it updated.  An easy way to do this is to celebrate other craft bloggers!

So without further ado… I LOVE cards. I think they are the perfect simple and quick craft. I subscribe to this cute little blog called Note To Self (isn’t that the cutest name??). Lindsay’s cards are adorable but not over-done. She has a great knack for balancing designs and elements but still keeping it simple and sweet.  I’m super inspired by her work, so I’ll share a few quick images with you. Check Note To Self out when you have a chance!

How can you do wrong with a big red bow???

And this one is made with MY Fine & Dandy line from MME. Love the flower!I love anything made with Kraft paper. Add some black and butterflies and you’ve got awesomeness.

I love these Christmas trees. I wonder if she cut them by hand? I definitely see an SVG cut file in my future… good thing Christmas is still a long way off!

Thanks Lindsay for all your beautiful inspiration! I hope the rest of you feel inspired to make some cards, or at least do something crafty today!
