Hand Knitted Strawberry Shortcake Dress set!

Well, it’s FINALLY Done!!  lol

Not only was I challenged to begin with, with my concussion, But the pattern was written by an UK designer and I’m an American Irish girl!  I’ll get back to that here in a few, after I share the finished sweet set!

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-Set-by-KimberlyRae

After months working on this ‘gem’, I’m quite pleased with it!

As you can see, I altered the pattern and created a more cap sleeve rather then the long.  I also changed the neck to white and didn’t use so many tiny Knitted strawberry flowers as it called for.  And I knitted the ‘Pips’ [strawberry SEEDS], which I like a lot more.

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetCollar-by-KimberlyRae

I used Cot-Lin yarn by Knit Picks  and love the subdued colorways.   They aren’t so shocking and defined red, white and green and just yummy.

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetD1-by-KimberlyRae

The pattern calls for a size 6 and size 0 for the flowers, but I used size 2 Harmony circular needles for the flower petals and centers.

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetD2-by-KimberlyRae

Speaking of Circulars-  This pattern is written for Flat work!  No, in the round.   I wish that was stated right up front, I had no idea until I bought the pattern and got into it!!  But that’s how I roll…should have asked questions, instead of diving in and assuming! lol  Maybe, that’s due to I’m still a Young knitter! haha

TIP for my American friends-  UK knitting Lingo as follows:

  • PIP= seed
  • yrn= YO or Yarn Over
  • stocking stitch= Stockinette

Strawberry-Shortcake-Dress-SetShoe-by-KimberlyRae

So of course, with Flat work, there’s a LOT of time intense seaming to be had, but the results are oh Great!

I loved working with the Cotton/Linen blend yarn and I just love, love the way it turned out!

I’ve started a couple more projects working with Anne Geddes Baby Sport yarn and talk about yummy…stay tuned!

DIY- Easter Basket!

BabyMineBOY-EasterBasket-KimberlyRae

Using Carta Bella’s Baby Mine Boy design paper kit,  I cut the SVG files  with my Silhouette Cameo.

All created from patterned papers within this sweet collection.

I Cut all SVG files pieces and when weaving the three strips that make the basket, I made sure to start from the bottom up. Doing this ensures a nice even weave.

Then, I decorated both with additional embellishments to make them even sweeter, including jewel brads for each of the wheels.

My Lawn Fawn Card!

Hi Everyone!

I’m Always needing a card…Aren’t we All? and today I grabbed my dies and stamps and had so much fun whippin’ up my Thank  you card!   It was so fast and Fun to make.  I’m pretty Excited to share with you some Lawn Fawn goodies, today.

 LawnFawnThankYouCardDbyKimberlyRae

For my card I used “Into the Woods” stamp and die set to create the fox, clouds and tree trunk.

I used Memento ink Cocoa Brown  and colored the fox and the house with my Copic markers.

The tree trunk, I used Ranger Distress Ink color ‘Peacock Feathers’, as well as for the bird and ‘many thanks’.

For the stitched card I used “Stitched Journaling Card” Die set!

LawnFawnThankYouCardbyKimberlyRae

Every time I see any of the Lawn Fawn products, they just make me so Happy and gives me those warm fuzzies inside!

I love how my card turned out [I know a bit 'clean' for me, but I love it]!

I hope you have enjoyed my little Thank you card and got some of your own warm fuzzies inside.

This Thing Called Crazy Life!

Hi Everyone!

I know, I know I’ve been absent for a time!  I’ve miss  you all and I’m happy to be blogging again!  Be warned, this will be a long one ;)

So much has been going on – Life is crazy!  In November , I was in a major car crash and even though my car was totalled, I came out of it alive with my left side all bummed up, concussion and whiplash.  I’m still in physical therapy, but healing more and more everyday.  I’m up to 10 minute walks, short driving and I’m able to blog, today. Yay me!    So,  for those of you going through similar experience be encouraged and know it does get better, with time.

On top of that, we transferred jobs and  made a Huge move [I say 'huge', since it's been 13 years since our last move] in September!!  My youngest kid adjusted quite quickly and loves  his new school.  My wayward 18yo, came back to live with us, in December and he also loves his new school. This School District ROCKS!!!

And speaking of Rockin!  Crafting is about the only thing that kept my sanity, living in our motorhome while our new house was closing.  It took FIVE long months to close, but our home in the Northwest trees by the lake is finally ours! Woot!

Here’s a pic of me on the dock with our puppy Kisses. We sure Love our new home!

KimKissesLakeBeach

DYI-Carta Bella ‘Homemade with Love’ Clock!

Hi Everyone!  KimberlyRae, here with my Carta Bella DT project and I have to say I’m soooo Excited to share with you my Real Clock I made; and show you how you can make your very own clock with Carta Bella’s ‘Homemade with Love’ paper kit!

MadewLove_MixitUpBakersClock2byKimberlyRae

For those that are not familiar with Carta Bella, they are a newer  Scrapbooking Paper Company that offer paper kits and digital as well.  When purchasing You can expect Every Gorgeous 80# Textured page of the highest quality.  Same goes for the stickers and 6×6 pads, too!  Most kits offer brads and chipboard stickers.  Truly a Crafter’s Dream paper! Wow!  Click right here to check’em out!

Ok, let’s get started!

DSC_2501

First, I used the Print & Cut feature with my Silhouette Cameo Studio Software, to create the mixer, pie and hot pad elements.

If you’re new to P&C, please ask me about my video.

DSC_2500

Then, I cut each element out with my Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine!

DSC_2502

I then layed out the pieces where I thought I wanted them to go and *TIP* took a pic with my cell phone, which helps with reassembling.

DSC_2503

Once all the main pieces are assembled and adhered, I lined up the Clock pieces and added them to the center, as directed from the instructions that come with the clock piece.

GO HERE for Detailed VIDEO on how to do this.

You can find these in most craft stores, I bought mine at Michael’s Crafts . Make sure it’s the 1/4″.

MadewLove_MixitUpBakersClock3byKimberlyRae

I adhered the Fork, knife and spoon to the clock hands and some May Arts Red burlap twine to add dimension and interest…just plain o’fun! lol

MadewLove_MixitUpBakersClockbyKimberlyRae

I used “Maison de Madeline SVG Kit” to create the cutting files for my clock.

Hi Everyone,  Carta Bella designer KimberlyRae here with a Pocket Mini Album to share with you, today!

I made my Pocket Mini Album with Carta Bella ‘WildFlower’ Collection!  And Oh My Goodness, was This collection Perfect for my projects!

My Cousin-in-law, Anne and her hubby Troy love to go hunting for deer, elk and moose and I can’t wait to give them this pocket album to stuff full of memories.

PocketMiniAlbumPagesSidebyKimberlyRae-WildFlower

I  used my die cutting Silhouette machine to cut out the pattern for this ‘Chipboard Pocket Album’

PocketMiniAlbumTipbyKimberlyRae-WildFlower

Tip:  For some of my TAGS I used this ONE sheet of paper and placed the shapes just so in my software.

PocketMiniAlbumTipFbyKimberlyRae-WildFlower

They cut out perfectly and was so Easy!

Next, I created the spine of the album!

PocketMiniAlbumSpinebyKimberlyRae-WildFlower

This design of album spine is really so cool because you can place and remove the pockets anytime/anywhere you want.

Remember to glue just the .5″ pieces together.  The back of the spine should lay flat.  Place each Pocket over each spine and place tags inside.

PocketMiniAlbumBackbyKimberlyRae-WildFlower

Carta Bella’s 80# paper is perfect for the Front and Back I used Two pieces of Cardstock and adhered together.

PocketMiniAlbumFlatbyKimberlyRae-WildFlower

Now,  head on over to see how you can make this fun Pocket Mini Album, with Carta Bella ‘WildFlower’ Collection!
