Tilda Kitchen Towel Holder ~ Use Lace at The Ribbon Girl

Good Morning Everyone!
Hope you're all doing well and enjoying the weekend!
We've had a very mild winter here in Vancouver, the cherry blossom has already started.

I apologize that I have not visited your blog or Facebook posts lately
as I have been busy at work and at home.

So onto my post today, a DT creation for The Ribbon Girl's February
Magnolia Only Challenge. The theme this month is ~ Use Lace.
I have always loved the lace collections at The Ribbon Girl Shop;
the vintage style laces are my favorite and must have in my stash.

I made a couple of kitchen towel holders using Violet Tilda
from the 2013 Magnolia Sea Breeze Collection.
The towel holders are miniature aprons measuring 5"x9".
The 2 aprons are slightly different, can you tell at least 3 differences?

The image was stamped on TAP paper (Transfer Artist Paper) and
colored with Copics before transferred onto fabric by ironing.

One of my favorite items from The Ribbon Girl is the sticky tape.
I have collected a stash of the plastic cores and intended to use them
in my creations. Here is one of the ideas that you can recycle them.
 I have used the ring as the towel holder under the apron skirt.

The ring is detachable and the apron is machine washable.

Here is a picture of how I hung the towel in my kitchen drawer handle.

And this is the picture of the much improved version :^) !
You can hang the towel holder on oven handle too.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope my creation has inspired you
to create a towel holder for your home.

Have a wonderful day!

Love Grows ~ Fridge Post-It-Note Caddy

Hello Peeps!
Hope you all are having a great weekend.

Today I have a new creation to share with you ~ a fridge note caddy.
I have made it for The Ribbon Girl's Card Challenge ~ Romance.

Instead of making a Valentine's Day card, I thought of making a
post-it-note caddy for the fridge door since my DH can never
find the note pad and pen when he needs one.

The idea is from my crafty friend Alexandra, aka ClayGuana.
She had a post-it- note fridge holder tutorial here.
I have borrowed her idea and made my own measurement for this 
fridge note caddy. Thanks Alexandra for your inspiration!

The image is a retired LOTV stamp, Love Grows.
I have water colored it with DI pads.

Designer Paper~ Maja Design Coffee in the Arbour Collection

Dies ~ Marianne Design, Memory Box, Joy Craft, Magnolia, Spellbinder

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
K&G pale pink rolled rose, WOC pale lemon and pink blossom flowers,
WOC 10mm pale pink open roses, WOC tiny pale pink rosebuds, 
 38mm vintage pink fluted edge sheer ribbon, 17mm Faye ivory cluny lace,
8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace, 25mm Deborah ivory cluny lace, 
3mm white flatback s/a pearls, white top stitching thread,
3mm and 6mm sticky tapes.

I love this note caddy. It makes my fridge door looks rather pretty!
I think I will make a few more as gifts for friends.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a lovely week!
