Angry Birds Kindle Cover

My boys got a Kindle with their Christmas money. Of course it needed a cover! But, heck no I’m not buying one when I have a drawer full of felt!

The boys love Angry Birds…so I made them this…

2012-01-29 15.29.57

Here is the back, I made a little flap with a button to hold it closed.

2012-01-29 15.30.08

Here it is with the Kindle going inside…

2012-01-29 15.30.32

It was pretty easy, I did it all by hand with felt and embroidery thread. Just grabbed the Kindle laid it on the felt and kinda went for it. I of course had to have a pic of the red bird in front of me to make sure I got it right.

The boys love it. Now I need to make a cover for my kindle! Mine will not be Angy Birds..I was thinking of making mine with this quilt block I made years ago, I have a bunch of quilt blocks that never got made into a quilt…lol…might as well use them for something! That is the next project…oh and my friend Jen wants one for her Kindle and Michelle’s son Ricky wants one for his…LOL! The list keep growing, so I’m I will have more to share!

It goes with Travis’ Angry Birds hat..which I did not make! LOL! Some day I will learn how to knit or crochet or whatever it takes to make hats like these! lol.

Have a great day!

Happy Crafting!

My Planner for 2012

Yes, it’s the beginning of a new year. Time to get organized right! Well, I am a planner girl. I know, a lot of you have foregone the paper planners and only use your smart phone calendars. I do have a smart phone..but I just need my planner! It goes with me everywhere. it’s in my purse. I write everything in it. It’s actually kind of fun to go back through my old planners and see what I had written..almost like a journal of my daily life!

So, of course it’s 2012. My old planner is tattered and full. Time for a fresh start! Yea! Fun! I know I could go and buy myself a planner, but it is much more fun to make your own! It’s so way cuter!

So here we go…time to share my 2012 planner!

Here is the planner in process.


Yes, that is my sewing machine. I wanted pocket pages, so I decided to sew them! That should be sturdy don’t cha think!



Here are the inside pages.  I created templates for these planner pages you can find them in my shop at GingerScraps. The templates are totally customizable.

Just use any digi papers that you like, drag them into the layers in the template and print the pages back to back. You just have to do a few test prints to see how the pages come out of your printer. Once you get it all tested they printing a a breeze.

So, I was super excited to use my new Zutter Bind it All for my planner this year! I got it on sale too! With my Ben Franklin gift card Smile Whoowhhoo! I am totally loving this new tool! It punches all the little holes for you and binds it all together with the wires.  A few test punches with this and I was good to go. You could also use a small 3 ring binder, like I did last year.

Here is the cover. It’s my favorite part Smile 


I love pink and black! So, the zebra paper and the little rhinestone camera I also got at Ben Franklin. The rest of the papers and elements are digital and are in the kit Colors of My Life which you can find at GingerScraps. It is a buffet kit, so it is huge and a collaboration of a bunch of the GingerScraps designers. I’m using the same kit for my 365 project this year.

The cover is a piece of chipboard with the zebra paper on both sides. Then the cute little hybrid bit glued on the front. It is all Mod Podged to keep it sealed and protected. This little book has to be able to take my abuse for the whole year! And it turned out so cute, I won’t get bored of looking at it!

Now, I am totally ready to take on another busy, fun filled year of lots and lots of thing to do!
