Welcome to the 

Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike. 
Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets. This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 
We took one card created by Theresa from ScrapsByGracie and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 
When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first. So let's get hopping.  You should have arrived here from Theresa Knopf @ www.sc…

HomeMade Saturday - Raggedy Ann 25"

Hi all, I am here to share with you a sewing project I've been working on for a month to six weeks.  About two years or slightly more my niece asked me if I would make another Raggedy Ann doll for her oldest daughter, Julisa as she applied make-up to her 15" doll and didn't like the doll....

So I decided to make a 25" doll for replacement and here is pics of the doll....

Doll w/out her hair

Finished project.  
and the tag:

Ragdolls by Scrappy Dew.com .  Printed and cut using my Silhouette Cameo and Studio DE software.  Actually, I loaded file into my Make the Cut software, put all the pieces together to form the Raggedy and saved as a png file so I could print and cut (or if I prefer, print than cut on the Cricut Explore.)
Using Inkscape and Studio DE I created a little tag as a card, so my sister and I could sign the inside.  I know there will be a happy 10 year receiving this doll by the end of this week.  And I will be cutting and sewing together anot…

Hello scrappy and crafty friends. Barbara here with a layout for Friday
.
My tip for today is to use tiny brads to attach vellum if there is not part of the vellum that will be hidden so you can use adhesive.

Here is the photo of the finished project:


I used the I AM line for this layout but any papers will do fine. You will need
1-12x12 solid piece of cardstock a doily cut in half background colored heart paper cut to 10x10 a contrasting color patterned paper cut to 4x6 two photo mats 4.25x6.25 piece of printed vellum cut to 10x2 2 tiny coordinating brads various embellishments

Center the heart pp on the solid cardstock. place the darker 4x6 pp at an angle in the top left corner approximate placement of photo mats so vellum will fit between them attach top photo mat attach vellum with brads attach bottom photo mat add the half doily as shown add embellishments as desired.
I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comme…
