Meet Emma and another video! :)

Hello and happy Sunday! Hope you are enjoying the weekend. Since summer is right around the corner, how about something bright and cheerful? Meet Emma from Baby Buds Designs! She is so so cute with her curvy hair, and I'm way over due for something blue. Plus I want to play along the TTCRD challenge - "paper piecing".

I don't know about you... but for me, when I use digi stamps and trying to print the image on the design paper is always a challenge for me. I never know which side to print on... actually I'm too lazy to figure it out.Smiley from So, I made my own paper!

What I did it:
  • I printed Emma twice from my printer
  • I use one of the Emma's, use a polka dot stamp (Stampers Anonymous) with versamark, heated dry, then ink her whole dress in Ranger distressing in broken china
  • Wipe out the extra color with a baby wipe
  • Cut out her pretty little dress

Goodies that I used:
Paper: Basic Grey Lauderdale
Copic markers: E000, E00, E01, E50, E53, B00
Others: Washi paper tape, twine, glitter
Well, I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by! Smiley from

She's adorable! I love ALL your work and think we ALL learn to do things in different ways!

I tend to use digi papers for my paper piecing and place several small pieces into a Word Document and then add my digi images on top, and then cut them out! It's FUN!

One day I may even make a VIDEO! :)

PS: The Video rocks! I love how you did your sweet little dress!

Now you have me wanting some Washi Tape, something I have had on my wish list to try!!

Where did you buy it? I know they have it at iCopic, but gosh if I go there...I'll spend a lot! :)

Hope to SEE you soon!!
