so...I swore off Papertrey for 3 months. I decided that I couldn't buy anything new until I had actually used each stamp set that I had already purchased from them.

Three months is a long time...since I made it that long, I deserved a prize (I may not have actually used all of the stamp sets, but I showed amazing restraint...and that in itself is prize-worthy...isn't it?!?) I knew the perfect thing...more Papertrey things to look pretty on my shelf, create oodles of creative thoughts, and accomplish nothing...great plan!

Package arrived, I opened it, oohed and ahhed, then let it sit on my counter for 4 days while I was up to my armpits in paper bats, sparkle modge podge, and cricut letters (don't ask).

Anyway, after telling my friend that I caved and finally made a purchase, I told her I had this idea to use the stocking die for paper and felt and then stitch on the paper...then I felt compelled to actually do it...

I like the stitching on the cuff, and the felt with the paper...but the rest of it definitely needs work...

but, it was only a prototype...and I did actually make something...so it's probably okay that I already placed another Papertrey order...right?
