Mega March JustRite Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of the Mega March JustRite Blog Hop!


For my project today I created a Gift Ensemble using Stitched with Love. Yes, I’ve done a few ensembles with this set already, but honestly, I LOVE this set and just can’t seem to put it down!!! Today’s ensemble was easily made usingalterable pieces I picked up this past weekend at Michaels for 50% off — and that’s a goodthing! Any one of these pieces would make a great gift for Mother’s Day or anytime you need a little gift for a crafty friend! Take a look at the completed project:


A four piece sewing ensemble, to be given together as one gift or each could be given individually. The garden bench is actually intendedto hold a small potted plant, I think! But I saw a fun pin cushion when I looked at it! The other 3 boxes were altered to suit my needs. Here’swhatI purchased and started with:


Now these are all very nice as is. And that’s the beauty of buying nice pieces already finished — just a little altering to the lids and you have a custom piece ready to give as a gift. Much quicker than purchasing a completely blank alterable. And I like things quick and easy!!! And I LOVED the garden bench when I spotted it — instantly I KNEW it was going to be a pincushion for this project.


The firstthingI did was to cover the lids, just the very tops. I traced the lid onto my DP, cut it out, glued it on, sanded the edges to get it smooth andblend it in nicely, then I took a smallchalk ink pad andapplied ink to the edges covering where I sanded. Very little effort and the boxes look as though they came this way, but NOW they areall set to become a custom gift ensemble. Papers I used for this project are by Graphic 45, both LeRomantique andOn the Boardwalk. The 2 pads worked together well. Links to all product used are down at the end of my project photos.

Now, on to the pincushion – that was fun!


To make the pincushionI just cut a piece of chipboard (backing from a DP pack) to the shape of the bench seat, found a scrap of fabric and some polyester fiberfill, and using the fiberfill as stuffing I wrapped the fabric around it, with the chipboard base on the bottom,and hot gluedthe fabricto the underside of my chipboard base. Then I trimmed it up with a bit of lace before gluing it to my garden bench seat.


Here’s a closer look at the focal image. There are so many projects you can come up with using Stitched with Love! Fun set! It requires a 2 3/8″ Round Wood Stamper. I used Copics to color my images for this ensemble. Here I used my Circle Nesties and Heart Nesties. All items used on this project are available inThe Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


This is the largest of the oval boxes. It is about 7.5 x 5″ and 3.5″ high. The buttons are sewn on with heavy button thread and all the bows for this project were made of 100% Silk Ribbon by May Arts in Ivory,on the Bow Easy. Here I used my Petite Oval Nesties (4 pack). I can see this box filled with spools of thread in a variety of colors. It’s plenty large to hold a goodly amount!


This is the smaller of the oval boxes, measuring 5.5 x 3.5″and 2.5″ high. Again, here I used heavy button thread, the Bow Easy, and circle dies and oval dies from my 4 packs of Petitie Circle Nesties and Petite Oval Nesties. All images on this project are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Copic Colored. All sentiments are stamped with my favorite, crisp black ink, which is Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink. This box is intended for buttons — oh how fun to fill it to the brim with vintage buttons!


This is the rectangular box, measuring 6.5 x 4.5″ and 3″ high. Again, the same product details as the oval boxes, but here I used my Classic Rectangle Nesties for the base as well as my Petite Circle Nesties (all 4 packs, which IMO is the best way to purchase them). This box would be fun to fill with ribbon, lace and twill — items held very dear to a crafter!



Aside from the alterables which came from Michaels, all items used to make this project are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
