♥ Sewing Journal and April Crafty Secrets Linky Party! ♥

Hi Bloggy friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We had a great day. I am very tired but it was nice. We came back from Vermont at 6pm Saturday and then I had to unpack a little, make my sauce and then do my food shopping for Easter Day. Then I had to get ready for the Easter Bunny to come hopping in and hide his goodies! Then I spent all day yesterday cooking and spending time with loved ones and friends. My kids had a blast looking for the eggs in the morning! This was really the first Easter my little one could participate and understand. It was funny watching them compete for who had the most eggs in their basket! So many great memories, I wouldn't trade for anything or anyone!! How was your Easter?

Today marks a new Crafty Secrets DT Challenge and the April Linky Party! Holey Moley, is it really April 1st already?? Crafty Secrets has some new Sewing Printables out! And they are amazing!! So the DT are showcasing all this month, creations using these fabulous new papers, ephemera and digi's!

I have wanted to make a Sewing Journal for a long time now and these new printables are just perfect! Just adore working with these! I used some Creative Studio Signs, Bobbin Cards and some Button Cards.

I also used the Sew Special Stamp Set as well.


The rest of the papers and ephemera that I used in the Journal will be available shortly in the Crafty Vintage Girl Shop. You can see more sneak peeks though, HERE on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog! (I will have links to everything as soon as they are up in the store!)

Don't forget to join in on the April Linky Party! Just link any creation made with a Crafty Secrets product for your chance to win a $50 Crafty Secrets Gift Certificate! And also, don't forget to stop by my talented teamies Blogs as well! We have a wonderful and talented new member as well! So, please stop and share the love with Sheila Rumney and welcome her! Here is the rest of the fabulous Crafty Secrets DT!! :)
