A Lil' Piecing

Julie Ebersole's video on the Hero Arts blog today inspired me to do some paper piecing:


I was immediately drawn to this Hero Arts(HA) set CL583 Right At Home when I saw it among the 2012 catalog releases as it contains so many great elements for creating scenes :)  The only thing it's lacking is a sun so I used one from an older HA set called CL439 Kiss From the Sun.  Been trying to find different ways to use HA CG422 Zig Zag - why not grass? 
Other Materials Used:  HA snow and grass layering paper, Stampin' Up cs, My Mind's Eye pp, Nestie, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder 

I have a tendency to emboss when I paper piece as I find it alot easier to cut out and handle all the little pieces.  In the video I noticed Julie used a tweezer thingy - I think I "need" a pair :)

I'm going to enter this in the ABC DT Challenge Anything Goes as well as this month's Hero Arts Challenge:



Thanks for all your encouraging comments :)

Hi Jean! Thanks for your sweet comment :) I actually cut the window using one of the circle dies from Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Standard Circles and running it through my Cuttlebug. Hope that helps! Robin :)

Robin, I have always loved the scenes you create - this one is just super adorable!! The red gingham house and the zigzag for the grass - so clever! Love the tiny hearts, too!

Jean said...

That does help - that set is on my list. Think I may need to get it before next week's A Cut Above online card class. ;-)
