Olivia's Rocker

Hello! We are on the last day of the

 If this is your first time visiting, be sure to go back and look at all my posts from the past 10 days or so to take a peek at my projects, and be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the posts to all the other Artisan awards winners projects.

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I will be sharing some of Olivia's favorite things here at home. One of her favorite things to do, is join me in my stamp room, and keep me company. She even has her own little rocker to sit in -

I spied this little rocker at a thrift store, and knew it would be perfect for my Bear. I spray painted it white, and made a cushion for the seat using the Sweet stitches Designer Fabric, and added Tangerine Tango Pom-Pom trim finish the look. I am going to have to keep my eyes open for another to replace the one I submitted. I know I will!

Sometimes Olivia like any other girl, feels like she needs to change things up a little for the sake of fashion. So she changes her dress and her ribbon in her hair -

The second dress is also made with the Springtime Designer Fabric. I added a little bit of crochet trim down the center of the jumper, and added a few Razzleberry buttons for detail. Here is the outside of the Suitcase that I keep her change of clothes in -

I didn't think to take a picture of it closed before I sent it off to SU. But it's all good! I got the idea for her to have a Suitcase, considering she would be traveling to SLC. :) The Suitcase was made without a template. I basically folded her outfit and measured it, then created the box around it.  The Suitcase is really just a gussied up pizza box. I cut a piece of Crumb cake card stock, ran it thru my Big Shot using the Square Lattice EF, distressing it a little with Soft Suede ink, and applied it to the front of the Case. I made some straps out of Textured Soft Suede card stock, applied those with sticky strip, and added some brads for detail. The handle is a medium sized oval punched from Crumb Cake, with slits made at the ends to slide another strip of Soft Suede stock  through to create a handle.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing all of my entries, and visiting all the other Award winners projects too. I konw I did! :)
