Frame Pincushion & Writing Tablet

Hi Everyone!!

 I pray your staying cool, it has been so hot
and humid here in NE Ohio, but at least there
 is no snow, that will be soon enough LOL

Today I want to share with you a fun project I
 learned from the fabulous Becca Feeken,
for her instruction video click here
This is my take on it.

I sure hope you try this project out, it's fun and a great
way to hold and display your embellished stick pins,
which I just realized I didn't photograph in mine LOL !!
So please pretend they are beautifully
displayed in mine LOL LOL.
 Oh it's been a very long day LOL

I used fabric & trim I had in my stash forever LOL.
The frames are from Micheal's bridal area
they come two in a pack. The flowers are Prima's.
I ended up putting mine together a little differently then
 Becca did but the results are about the same.

Now I also want to share a cool writing tablet
my friend Darlene (click on her name to go to her blog)
showed me how to make
and this is how mine turned out.
Thank you Darlene!!

The tablet is from Staples. I used my scalloped nesties ,
CS and punch from SU.The embellishments were
from my stash. The flourish die is a Cheery Lynn
die I got from Joan's Garden. The silhouette
sticker is from Archiver's.
Well that is all for today, hope you enjoyed these
 so now get busy and create something!!!

                                               So until next time {{{Big Hugs}}} to all
