You're Sew Special

I have a friend who's into all things crafty.......and recently has got very into sewing.......she also loves all things 40s and 50s.......even her wedding last year was 50s themed.....so I've made her a little xmas gift that I hope combines the 2.
I startd with this blank that I got at Ally Pally last month.......and 'altered' it to this.
The Cosmo Cricket retro 'material girl' pad I also got at Ally Pally was just perfect........the sewing embellishments are a Hero Arts download.........the retro ladies are a Deviant Scrap download.......added some buttons.......and the thin twine is from The Ribbon Girl.
This should fit into 'alter it' at One Stop Craft Challenge and 'under the tree' at ABC Christmas Challenge.
And Shimelle's new class.......a journaling class......True Stories......is now 'live' on her blog.....I shouldn't take this class......I've got 'Cut the Crazy out of Christmas' class just started.......all my xmas crafting to do.......4 courses to tutor in Term 2........but how can I resist a Shimelle class.....especially on journaling.......which is something I could definately do with a class on.....haven't signed up yet.......but don't hold your breath!!!!!!

This is gorgeous Jacky! It's one of the best uses of Material Girl I've seen anywhere (have you seen their new 1934 collection?)

I haven't seen up yet either, but I probably will

Amy said...

Yes, this is fabulous Jacky!

I've not signed up but I'm thinking I might because the topic sounds very good and not something that has to be done now.

Lauren Hatwell said...

Its beautiful Jackie. Your friend will be thrilled to bits. Lx

Cheri said...

I had the same feelings about Shimelle's new class - waaayyyyyy too much going on right now - but how can I resist???

Karen said...

Fabulous is the right word. I love this. And like Sian, I'm anxious to get my hands on their new line Circa 1936 (or something like that.) I signed up this morning. I love Shimelle's classes and how can you beat the price? I didn't participate on the boards at all in September and felt like I missed out, but I had other priorities. That may be true for this class too, but I'm always looking for ways to improve my journaling.

LOVE this, Jacky. You did a fabulous job on this, and I just love the material girl line. I haven't signed up for the class, and I'm seriously thinking of not signing up for any classes through the end of the year. :o\ I did terribly with the MeTAV class - just couldn't keep up with other things going on. I'll just live vicariously through you. :o)!

gorgeous gorgeous! i dont usually keep up with classes lol but I am proud of myself for metav because i decided to do it digitally and it took all the stress away. I just write my entries on my blog and when I have time, copy them over to photoshop and faff with pictures! definitely signing up to the new class as i think i'll enjoy it, haven't felt that inspired by the last 2, but obviously me nothing to do with the class!

Macy, you such a good job on both cards and altered art pieces!!!
I'm very on the fence about shimelle's class. I'm signed up for dina's new art journaling class, and think the two might be too much together.
