You Can Do It :challenges # 7 and # 8



Hello friends in blogland,
tonight I am posting about the card/projects made for the 'You Can Do It Challenge' , on SCS .
The card above was made for the 'Mixing Patterns' challenge (week 7) It was also a case from my good friend Terry (WingPitSistah to me...lol). Feast your eyes on her beautiful card right here:

I kept my version simpler and quickly added a sentiment right on the main designer paper.♥

Last week challenge (week 8) was about creating tea bag holders (some of the gals created Ghirardelli choc. mini containers instead) Everyone take was so diverse, so nice to see such a stream of ideas and getting inspired by them.
My take on this challenge is to make a diaper fold pouch. It's been so longgg since I made one that I thought "why not?"....I never made one as a tea or chocolate container before but there's always a first time...right?? I actually kind of like the results.


 For this pouch I used a 5x5 square double sided designer paper, an EK punch, 
a mini butterfly punch, lil button, candy floss and stickles...The top part of the opening closes well tucked inside the round punched out pattern. Simply cute eh!? ♥




  This second pouch is slightly larger then the first one I showed above...
I used a 6x6 square d/p for this and punched out the top borders then sponged the top half.
Also stamped a cup and sentiment (both from SU) and applied them on top of pouch, using dimentionals. Larger bold flower cluster and a large brad completed the look. I really like how this one turned out...love how colorful and 'happy' it feels....


 This diaper fold pouch holds 2 Ghirardelli style chocolates and two pkg of tea, and it could easily hold even more. In the past I made larger one and filled them up with  seasonal goodies ie: Hallowe'en treats...etc...or even Birthday treats ...so many options as it is very versatile♥

Hope you like both challenges posted! Thank YOU for visiting!
♥Time to go sewing some dreams...G'Night my peeps! ♥
