Long holiday weekends spent with friends and family are one of the best-- and most hectic-- things in life, don't you think? But I (Lauren) have a no-fail action plan for any eventuality:
Luckily I also have some Eyelet Outlet Knitting Brads to bring it to life in card form. I love that the packets include knitting needles and balls of yarn, and that the yarn comes in a few different colors, because let's face it, there are very few knitters who will content themselves with just ONE color of yarn! I made my own knitted background paper by painting little V's in coordinated shades with my favorite watercolor pigment powders, and a solid panel to hold my stamped sentiment. A few tiny gems from a Jewel Bling Strip and a bit of machine stitching complete the design.
I hope that your weekend is full of food, fun, family... and a little creativity, too! ♥
likes yarn almost as much as she likes paper...
and loves to talk about both on her blog!
