Sew Sweet N Crafty is the Guest Designer at 3 Girl Jam
Hello Crafty friends, I am excited that 3 Girl Jam is having me as Guest Designer today. I have always been an artsy crafty type person since I was a toddler. From childhood coloring books to adulthood with my Cricut I really enjoy nearly every form of creating art, crafts and sewing. I got my first Cricut in October 2010 after seeing a demo in Michaels. I fell in love with it and never foreseen all the possibilities that the Cricut has enabled me… as well as all the other tools and “toys” I have collected over the past year to supplement and compliment it.
So on to the good stuff. Here is the stocking I made to share with all of you.
I cut the stocking from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge at 11.5 inches. I can hang it from the fire place or stuff it with candy canes and other goodies and give it to someone for Christmas. As of now I am keeping it because I can’t bare to part with it, I just love how it turned out. The 3 Girl Jam pink crinkle ribbon was just the right touch for my stocking.
Art Philosophy is a super useful cartridge by the way. I am so glad I bought it. Back to the stocking, I used some Christmas stamps to stamp all over the stocking and then I sewed it together leaving a top open for goodies to go in. I sprayed it with some Shimmer Mist- Frost, added some pink 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon to make a bow. I also, painted the top of the stocking with white paint where the boa would go so the cream colored paper would not show through any gaps between the boa. I then, hot glued the boa down across the top of the stocking and added some Stickles to the holly & berries and popped them up with some pop dots (cut at 4 inches from Cricut Art Philosophy).
Thank you 3 Girl Jam, for having me as Guest Designer. I hope I gave everyone some inspirations to keep those holiday craft juices flowing. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
