Little cupcake pincushion

I don't know about anyone else, but I just love all the cute little pins that are available now. I love how they look on layouts, but often once they're home they're out of sight, out of mind.
Not any more! I made this sweet pincushion, kinda like a little cupcake, using a coffee mug and some felt. Simply roll the felt like you would a paper flower and voila! a handy dandy little pincushion that looks good on your desk and keeps your pins and needles nearby.

Scrap the Girls

Loved the challenge this month, since Pink is on high rotation in the car when I'm on my own (naughty words!) Have had these pics of my own little rock chick for a while, and this is the perfect way to scrap them.

I was inspired by the square design of the artwork, the color and have used a music theme as well. I thought a little grunge with the cardboard, inking, distressing and messy stitching suited the theme.

I'm a rockstar

I was lucky to find the little rockstar badge on a card of badges from a $2 shop, and made the felt flowers. I am loving all the layers I see on Leanne Pearces' layouts lately, and have tried my own hand at it.
