Designer Fabric from Stampin' Up!

I love these fabrics!  It is so much fun to combine them with the coordinating products:  Papers, Inks, Card Stock, Ribbons–they all work so well together.  And if you think "fabric" means getting out the sewing machine, think again.  Projects like this are very easy and do not require any sewing.

I started with the On Board Journal from Stampin' Up!  Then I cut a piece of Deck the Halls fabric to fit the front.  I have been experimenting with different adhesive options.  This time I used the Adhesive Sheets from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Then I got out the new Tasteful Trim Die to create the border.  I cut a strip of the Cherry Cobbler patterned fabric, adhered a strip of Adhesive Sheet, and ran it through the Big Shot.  Then I removed the backing and added it to my project.  The adhesive keeps the edges from fraying.  Easy Peasy.

You can see how I combined paper and fabric:  The sentiment is from Define Your Life stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla card stock.  The background was done with a stamp from Vintage Vogue, using Always Artichoke ink which was first stamped off to make a lighter image on the card stock.  Adhesive Sheets worked great for attaching card stock to fabric. The flowers are also from the Vintage Vogue set and embellished with Antique and Metallic brads.  The leaves are wings from the Two Step Bird Punch.

The fabric ruffle was made from a strip of fabric.  I ran one of edges through the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim die to create the "pinked"or zig-zag edge in order to minimize fraying.  Then I attached it to a punched circle of card stock with Sticky Strip, pleating it as I went.  The Crochet trim was adhered the same way.  The top layer of fabric was backed with Sticky Page and cut with the Circles #2 die.  I used the Sticky Page for this layer because of the uneven surface it was being adhered to.

You rarely see one of my projects without ribbons, and I couldn't resist this indulgent set of bows. Once again I was appreciating how the fabric coordinates with the embellishments. 

Are you inspired to try this yourself?  When you order these fabrics you will receive a booklet with photos and instructions for five different projects.  If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or contact me through the link on the left sidebar.

    Thanks to all of you for your comments. As for Kristis question about hiding the fabric edges: The fabric doesnt go to the inside. I cut it to just cover the outside with pinking shears, although that may not have been necessary, as the adhesive seems to keep things from fraying. then I used the Cherry Cobbler trim to cover the pinked edges.
