Dreamy Evening Projects

Hello all,

When I announced my Etsy shop I also said that I'd show you a few things I've been making with the kits. So today here are the projects I've made with one Dreamy Evening Kit like this one:

A layout:

Papers = DCWV 'Taj Mahal' & 'Old World', Journaling spot = My Little Shoebox 'Robots Uncut',
Cute Word Bead = Magnetic Poetry, Proud Alphas = Thickers 'Roller Rink', Daddy Alphas = Papermania,
Everything Else from Dreamy Evening Kit.
If you're wondering why the 'u' is a strange size,
it's because I had to cut down a 'q', I had no 'u's left!

I love the photo of hubby holding our newborn daughter, and am glad to have finally scrapped it. I also have a photo of me holding her the same day, but I look like such a mess that I never want to use it on a layout. I don't know whether to go ahead and scrapbook it even though I hate the picture, or just do a non-photo page about my first memories of her and just keep the photo in the family album!

I used some more of the kit for an elastic Alice Band:

I cut the vintage fabric strip down to 14", and backed it with some lilac felt to strengthen it - my felt wasn't quite long enough so I used two strips, just making sure the join would be hidden behind the felt flowers.

I attached two strips of elastic because my elastic was quite thin and I didn't want it to twist too much. If you're clever you can sew the elastic between the vintage fabric and the felt - I didn't think of it until afterwards so the back of my alice band is a bit ugly where I attached the elastic!

It only took a few hand stitches to attach the felt flowers for a cute finish. I'm going to have to make one of these to fit my daughter too!

I used up almost all the rest of the kit on a birthday card:

Card Blank = Papermania, Outline Stickers = Anita's, Happy Birthday Stamp = Whispers Words,
Flower Stamp = Anita's, Fimo button, crochet heart, and fabric from Dreamy Evening Kit

I think I'll keep this card for my Mother-In-Law's birthday, she loves these colours.

So there we go, three projects from one kit! I even had a little bit of the white lace trim left to use on something else. If you'd like to buy a Dreamy Evening Kit then head over to my Etsy Shop!

I hope you're all having a relaxing Sunday, xxx
