Feeling crafty!! Quiet Book!


Hey there crafty peeps!!

It's been a while since I've posted any crafty projects on here so I am so excited to share this very special project with you all!!

Although I love making cards and paper crafts I still have so much of my crafting supplies packed in boxes so I decided to try my hand at sewing. I wanted to make my Preston a quiet book and I looked around for ideas and found this great website that had some patterns I decided to dive in head first and here is my first quiet book page!! EEk I'm so excited!!


Ok so here is page one of the quiet book!! Isn't this mailbox the cutest thing ever!! Not bad for a beginner huh hehe!! The little door opens and closes and has a snap to keep it closed and the little flag moves up and down too!!

Ok so here is what you will find inside!! These little letters were so fun to make but did take some time since I did it all by hand. I did make cut out the pattern for the stamp using my cricut and the gypsy wanderings cartrige as well as the star!! I love how they came out!
and of course inside the envelopes are little letters. I used some of my stamps Mosnter Kisses and Smile on to write sentiments on the letters!!! I only have two finished here but I am almost done with the third! 

I am so proud of my first page it really did take some  time but it was worth the effort when my baby boy saw it and got excited!! He really loves his mailbox and getting little letters! I am already starting on page two I cant wait to share it with you all!! I should have it ready by tomorrow!! I can't tell you how happy I am to finally be posting again!! Thanks for stopping by!!
