If a messy desk is the sign of a creative mind…

Then I am so totally creative!!! By the time I took this picture I had already started to straighten things up.

First, let me say, fabric is way out of my comfort zone…

I was cleaning up my stamp room the other day, and as I was organizing my dies, I picked up my favorite of the moment, Fun Flowers (I’m almost done Mandy, really!) and noticed a stack of fabric and an old pair of jean shorts that I’d been meaning to try running through my big shot….whew, now that’s a run on sentence.

Anyway, I decided to cut up the shorts and run the pieces through the Big Shot using the Fun Flower die. Then I thought "why not run some of this other fabric through it'?. As you can imagine, my cleaning came to a screeching halt. What’s that kids book? If You Give A Moose A Muffin…

Now, while I’d decided to cut out all these flowers, I still have no idea what I’m going to do with them!

I love how the Big Shot cut even through the hems on the jeans with no problem. Just like it was butter! P1150371_edited-1

While I was at it, I cut out the back pocket of the shorts. I figured I could make it into something! Since the pocket was

sewn to the shorts, all I had to do was cut it out. No sewing or anything! I’m thinking it will make a great change purse for my daughter. It might even hold a tube of lip gloss. A girl can’t go out without her lip gloss, or so my daughter says.

I’m thinking maybe a bookmark. At the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference this past January, managers and above received a cute one made of paper, but a cloth one would work even better.

Stay tuned! We’ll just have to see what I come up with.

Thanks for looking.
