Hanglar fun

You can tell Christmas is over, because I have time to play again! My friend Nikki had sent me a bunch of adorable Hanglar images a few weeks before Christmas, & I'm happy to find some time to play with some of them. I adore these images, & I'm sure some day soon we'll be able to buy them here in the US!


I colored this lovely gal with Prismas & gamsol & cut her out. I used my Nesties for the olive & white layers, & the white background is embossed with my Cuttlebug snowflake folder. The designer paper is from Basic Grey Mellow, which I happily got at Michael's for 40% off. I'm so thrilled they're carrying at least a few of these fun pads! The sentiment is from Hero Arts, & the snowflake charm is from a stash I scored on Ebay. The Primas in the corner have a bit of raffia attached. Notice the Dew Drops in the corners?? Those were not planned, until I went & did some zig zag stitching & guess what ~~ all 4 corners turned out differently!! LOL!! I hate that, I like everything to match & to be uniform. I'm sure there's some secret formula out there to get perfect corners, but until I figure it out I will be adding a lot of brads/Dew Drops/other bling to my corners! I'm just happy the zig zags turned out straight!! This is the first card I've tried stitching that way & am surprised it turned out okay!!

Speaking of sewing, I bought the Sew Mini the day after Thanksgiving. Hancock had them for $39.99, & they only had one left. It was fate. But I also had my friend's machine, so it sat in the box. Well, tired of lugging around her 1000 pound Kenmore, I finally packed that one up & opened up the box to the Sew Mini. I was shocked when I took it out, how light it is!! This is going to be so much nicer! It's half the size & about 1/100 of the weight! I haven't set it up yet, but I'm anxious to try it out!! That will be my project tonight, after everyone is in bed & can't hear me swearing, lol!!! Seriously, it does look pretty easy & Gina K wrote a great tutorial with lots of pictures on how to set it up & use it, for us non-sewing types. Wish me luck!!
