This beach cruiser is from Deena’s soon-to-be-released line, “Offshore” that will be available in January. ¬†It was begging for a winter make-over, so we just had to get this pattern whipped up for the holidays!

Last week I had the opportunity to go to Quilt Market in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This was the first year I had set up my own booth, and wow, what a treat! My little section of Quilt Market was decorated in all things spooky, to introduce my newest fabric line Happy Haunting (it’s in my etsy shop as well as on your fabric shop shelves really soon if not already!) Our Kate Skirt took a cute little frightening twist, as well as our Around the Block quilt.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am crazy for this cat pillow. This quilt, runner, and pillow pattern might have just turned me into a cat person.

Here is one of the kitty cats taking a peek at my Happy Haunting storyboard. Storyboards are the booklets that the shops look at while they are placing their order. I was lucky to snag one from the Riley Blake booth to show visitors my new designs.

Ok, one of my favorite parts of the booth was the branch in the moonlight full of bats! We had a custom die made by Accuquilt (and you can too!) All sorts of patterned bats were adorning the branches.

But before we could bring the bats in, we had to stabilize our branch with foam spray. I learned first hand the “DRIES QUICKLY” is a relative term. If we wouldn’t have propped it up with chairs and tables I would have been standing in the aisles at the Quilt Market opening the next day! Thank goodness for helpful booth neighbors.

Don’t you just love the black and white version of my Around the Block quilt looks? It makes me feel like I am stepping into an old episode of The Munsters or the Addams Family.

Here is our cute BOO pillow on top of our Squared Away Quilt.

My puppy Piper must¬†be a little jealous of my cat pillow. She wants to make sure I know who’s Man’s Best Friend really is!

I’ve always wanted the opportunity to work on the branding of a new company, and when I was contacted to work with BasicGrey + ModifyInk owner, Rachel Brenchley¬†on a new venture, the answer was an easy YES! Once I knew the name and a little direction of what the company was, I went to work.

1. I started with a mix of inspiration pieces that had the feel we wanted the new brand to have.

2. Next, an array of different feeling logos were designed.

2. We liked them all, but went with the most simple, clean logo that we could build upon the most.

3. Choosing a color scheme, prints and patterns that we could use throughout a website or sprinkle through newletters, blogs, and other social media applications was the next step.

4. Creating elements that represent the brand, fonts that will be used consistently throughout the images made, was the next step.

Just like I thought, building out the PaperFix brand was a lot of fun! ¬†I look forward to watching the brand grow and use the design concepts we’ve put into place.

Hi, friends! CT Member, Sandy Henderson, here to share a fun HYBRID project with you. I’m sure you’ve seen all those fabulous pre-made printable decor¬†pages some of the paper companies are releasing. The idea is “insta-art”, all ready for you to pop into a frame and put on display in your home. Well, why not make some of your own? As digital scrappers, we have the kits AND the tools to make them¬†ourselves…and that’s just what I did! Then, to take it a step further, I added my own personal touch with a decorative banner–INSIDE my frame. I’ve pulled out a few “oldie-but-goodie” kits of Deena’s , opened Photoshop, and went¬†to work. Here’s how…and I didn’t even use¬†a digital cutter this time.¬† View full post »
