ABC= A Beautiful Craft!

Hello! It Windy here with a technique that will help you simplify
those ever so trendy samplers that all over the internet right now.
Here's an example of one of those extremely detailed, gorgeous

That beauty makes me yearn for life before kids... for the days when I
had the time to do needlepoint... strike that! Reverse it. I'm having
too much fun as a mama to my girls, so I'll just skip the authentic
sampler making for now and use my scrapbooking supplies to create a
"Simplified Sampler."

How about this?

I still get my trendy sampler fix, but I can finish it in one evening
and give it as a gift for a girl friend who's expecting a little

Here's how I made it:
1) Start with a pre-made canvas and lay down letters from Animal
Crackers for Girls collection rub-ons.

2) Use a clear ruler to make certain that letters line up straight.

3) Use rub-on tool to apply rub-ons to surface of canvas. Note: place
a book under the canvas so you have a hard surface to work on.

4) Embellish with stickers, ribbon or other embellishments that you
may have on hand.

And that's it... easy peasy! Thanks for visiting today!
