I’m in Love!!! with Stampin’ Up! fabric

Today was my first try with the gorgeous fabric from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasion Mini Sew Suite.  Actually this is my first try at doing something with our fabric at all.  I got both sets of Holiday fabric and admired it for months but didn’t actually attempt using it on a project.   Now I have two more great sets from the new mini.  Plus the buttons, brands and all accessories.  I even have the Big Shot dies to make cool fabric flowers.  I’ve studied samples made by my favorite stampers and fellow demonstrators, but just didn’t take the plunge….until today.

Shelli (Stampin’ Up! co-founder) has challenged us this month to try something new to celebrate the new year.  So I decided it was time to pull out my fabric and do something- start small and then I can work up to bigger projects.  So I did.  I took a small strip of the gorgeous garden pattern of Springtime Vintage, crinkled it and frayed it a little bit and accented my card.  And I am in love.  The sewing machine has been dusted and a corner of my dining table cleared.  So, watch out, I hope to be able to showcase this beautiful fabric along with other items from our Occasions Mini. 

I think this will be a great workshop make and take.  It’s fairly simple and I love, love the colors.
