“OH SNAP” Camera **Printable**


In honor of SNAP the Conference that we will be teaching the ADOBE LIGHTROOM class at this weekend (more tips on that coming soon), I thought I would create a fun printable to share with you…taking pictures and creativity are such a huge part of a good life, in my opinion.  I hope you enjoy this one (personal use only please).

Snappy Bags


Snappy Bags are perfect for keeping little hands busy (they take a while for them to get open) or to hold the small items hanging out at the bottom of your purse. They use pieces of tape measure in the top to “snap” closed when you let go, so they automatically stay closed! So tricky. To make some Snappy Bags of your own you will need, fabric (scrap or fat quarters work great), a tape measure (my husband freely handed over a broken one), and decorative trim if you so desire. First, cut two pieces of fabric to be the same size. I found that 6″x12″ was a good size (but you can make them to fit anything!). And place them right sides together. Then sew the ends with a 1/4″ seam. Next, flip it so the right sides are out. Press with an iron. Here’s the trickiest part. Take a screw driver and remove the screws from the back [Read More…]

Business Card Wallet


We just spent the weekend at SNAP! and met so many great people! And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from attending conferences, it’s that business cards are everywhere. Typically, you can find me digging around to find one to hand out, and the cards I gather end up a scattered mess. To help with this problem I sewed up a little business card wallet. I shared this tutorial on Kojo Designs as part of her Sewing for Me series. And just the other day I realized that if I made it a little bigger it would also be perfect as a passport cover. It’s a small project and I found everything I needed in my stash. Fabric, interfacing, elastic, and vinyl. To start, cut 2 pieces of fabric and 1 piece of interfacing down to size. Mine were 4.5″ x 5.5″. I also cut the elastic to 6″ and 2 pieces of vinyl 2.5″ x 4″. Go ahead and [Read More…]
