♥ Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #79 ♥

I must admit that when it came to die cutting onto fabric, mine never came out right. So therefore, I gave up! Then I saw this week's Make It Monday challenge to make Fabric Die Cuts and I thought I'd give it another go. After watching Melissa Phillip's video, I realized what I was doing wrong! I wasn't adhering cardstock to the back of my fabric before die-cutting it! What an easy solution! Why didn't I think of that?! (Thanks Melissa! ;)


So I decided to use one of my all time fave Papertrey Ink stamp sets, Garden Variety. I used the Seed Packet Frame Die to die cut onto some pink gingham fabric and then stamped right onto the fabric itself. Love having texture on cards! I will be using fabric on my cards a lot more often now!


I also used some Bazzill Basics Vintage Marketplace paper, lace trim, Liquid Pearls and Bakers Twine. I just ordered a bunch of new things from Papertrey Ink and I am waiting with baited breath for them to arrive!! {swoon} :)

Well, I am now in Party Mode! Sunday is Santino's 2nd Birthday party! So I am off to order balloons and go shopping! I can't believe my baby is turning 2! And don't forget, you still have time to enter my latest giveaway! But please no Candy Chasers!! :(

Have a great rest of your week!!

This is beautiful, Melissa! I realize you already placed your order with PTI, but just in case you didn't know....they have packs of cardboard squares for this very purpose (backing your paper or fabirc before die-cutting). They are inexpensive and work SO well. I'm sure you will enjoy all your new goodies.
Thanks for sharing this. As always, I'd love to have you share it (or anything, really) at WAW if your get the chance. Have a blessed weekend and enjoy that B-Day party. Precious memories!
