Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Gettin' Crafty Blog Hop! If you arrived from Leah's blog then your headed in the right direction, if you stopped by to visit and would like to participate in the hop you may start with our lovely host Lisa! Let's get this Crafty Hop started, woot woot!!

The theme of this hop is Gettin' Crafty.The projects have to be craft related (something other than cards or scrapbook layouts), or they can be craft themed projects (these CAN be cards or scrapbook layouts) featuring Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files, now this will be the same theme used for our challenge this month, for further details, challenge rules as well as entries please click here, you will find all the information needed to play along!!!

 If you choose to participate here is what your playing for.....
Now onto my projects and Cutting Files

I have two crafty projects for you today, I am sure you will be able to guess what one of them will be, if you guessed a shaped card then your totally right!

Take a look at this sewing machine, isn't it just the cutest!?! I love the look of it!
For my second project...
Did any of you get the chance to purchase this twine from TARGET after Christmas for .10 cents???
I purchased quite a bit, not that I needed it, but it was such a good price, I just couldn't pass it up!! Well I found a creative way you can share the love, crafty style!
 I used the spool for storing my twine. With my silhouette cutting tool, I snipped the thread tail and added a small slit around the top area to hold the twine in place.

Now check this out, I purchased these little bags from Tuesday Morning, they measure 2x2 inches.
Fit perfect!!!
Isn't this just perfect for pocket letters and flip books?
 I cut them at 1.95x1.78, you should definetly give this a try!!!
I hope you have enjoyed my projects!!
