Okay… in T-minus 3 hours and 51 minutes Anne is picking me up to go to the airport so we will be on our way to Stampin Up! Convention! I am so excited. This is my first convention. So, in honor if this occasion, I designed died to make us some notebooks. These are fabric covered composition books. I used the comfort cafe and floral district fabric sets. And I used an elastic ponytail holder to make the closure. The flowers are die cut from the fabric that I fused with a stiff interfacing so they would not be too floppy. And I used the neutrals buttons, linen thread, twine, to sew it all on… these were lots of fun to make. And probably my first sewing project that I accomplished mostly on my own. I’m not gonna tell you how much seam-ripping I did…. but here is the comfort cafe:
And here is the floral district:
This one also has my school planner for next year. Bronwyn and I had this great idea to have our students make and sell planners for the staff at our school. Proceeds will go to benefit the Teen Parent Support Club. I’m happy it worked out that I made my planner from the floral district paper…. so now I can also use my notebook at school and everything will match! I will be updating from convention so check back. The rumor is that they have a big announcement. So big that they are streaming it live on the internet for the demos who cannot make it…. I’m excited….
