Every girl's bestfriend.

So, I'm finally finished my Christmas cards!!!! Yay!  I will be sharing that later in another post.

For today - thought that I would make a quick card with this adorable doll from last week's SVG Cuts' Christmas Morning collection.  I've always been a fan of doll die cuts, but when I saw this one, I fell in love, and had to play with it!

I also had a chance to plug in my Sizzix Eclips yesterday and cut this out with its SVG software, eCAL.  This machine is just so amazing - it sucked in my mat into the machine crazy fast and the cut is so smooth and clean!  I've really only cut this one thing out, so I cannot tell you any more right now, but I'll definitely be using this from now on!  I'm really happy with everything - I so recommend the Sizzix Eclips!  Thanks so much Leo and Mary!

Anyway, with this particular doll, I thought that it would be really cute to make 'hair' with twine!  I put tacky tape on the base and adhered twine on it! I love how it turned out!  The twine is from The Twinery - Lemondrop Yellow.

Okay, gonna keep this post short, so here's the card:


This sentiment is from Papertrey Ink - Signature Series: Cupcake. (Please don't look at my stitching... realized the bobbin wasn't inserted correctly - but this was the last piece of this paper, so couldn't chuck it :( The papers are from Crate Paper - Emma Shoppe for doll's dress, and background is from Neighborhood Collection)


It's really cute, isn't it?


Okay, that's it. I've got a project to make for this Thursday for My Thoughts Exactly - so I'll catch ya later!


  1. Wow, that hair is pretty awesome! And I love all the details and papers! :-D That's a really sweet card! :-)

  2. Love all the details. Oh and by the way my mom always told me that the orientals would on purpose have an imperfection in their crafts. I don't know if it is true or not but I sure feel better when I goof and it is my last piece of paper.

    You do beautiful work and encourage me to try new things. I love coming to your blog

  3. So adorable oh my...I love her! ;) Hugs x
