I Should Have Read All The Directions



Pretty In Pink!


January 2014 Blog Hop

  I have three projects to share with you!
My third one is posted HERE


At first I didn’t read that we could only use pink. Normally we just go with the inspiration from the photo.  And here I thought I was so smart seeing the blue dish!


So I made another card and reattached the hand stitched heart that I made. Luckily I used removable glue dots.



All in Pink this time!Everything but the ribbon is from 
Papertrey Ink


 I loved making the French Knots for the flowers on this barrette! 


Dont want to keep you there are lots of beautiful projects to see on the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
I love pink, maybe because I had three girls first! Lots of pink when they were little!

  4. Oh love this, and I really should pull out the In Bloom impression plate, such a nice background (that's what happens on these hops, I find all these products I have being used and rediscover them). And I didn't follow the directions for the build your own little house hop and I still randomly won, so don't stress the details.

  35. OMG Marybeth - just gorgeous! and you crack me up - didnt read the directions huh? well then we ALL should skip the directions if we come up with gorgeousness like yours. The heart was pretty enough and then you made that barrette! so beautiful. I could never make a french knot - ridiculous I know - so i made need lessons from you. I love every single thing you made here sweetie!

  36. I like the white background better. Those stitched hearts are beautiful. I was going to add the flowers on mine too but changed because of the green. Love the Barrett.

  38. Simple and elegant Marybeth. Love the stitched felt heart...

  39. WoW!!! Your cards are gorgeous and I love all three of them!!!
    But my favourite is the Pink one, Oh my is that pretty or what!
    And yes, our daughter had some pinks in her wardrobe too. :-)
    That's probably the reason why she doesn't want to wear any pink clothes anymore nowadays, ha, ha, the poor kid! (I know, I must have traumatised her wearing pink and all, and ribbons in her hair....)
    You're such an amazing and creative person!
    Thanks for sharing your story.
    Bye,
