Hey everyone!! I'm going to tempt you all here today, and boy-oh-boy you are not going to want to miss this!! Is there anyone out there that doesn't love Sizzix? I think not.....so here's your chance to win one of four...(that's right)...ONE of FOUR, $100.00 gift cards from Sizzix and all you have to do is play along with these super simple rules.
To enter, visit the blogs of the six Sizzix Brand Ambassadors (listed below), the Sizzix Twitter page, and the Sizzix Facebook page and find the secret word we have placed on each page.

Want a clue to finding my secret word??? I'm sure you do and it's very easy....all you have to do is look for the one word on this post, that's been changed to "Bold Italic". It's that simple!!! You won't have any problems finding it, though it may take just a little patience on your part.
Now for the hop itself, we are celebrating....drum roll please....the 4th of JULY!! :) Yup, that's right, below you will find the projects I created for this hop and I hope you're inspired by the Stars & Stripes theme we picked out for the month!
I simply appliqued the star to a piece of coffee stained muslin, (which I dyed myself), then sewed on the "USA" with red DMC floss.
After that I simply added strips for the sides, a backing, then machine stitched around the outside, with right sides together, then flipped it out and filled it with poly fiberfill. To finish it, just hand stitch it at the bottom.
Here are some more pics...
Very simple, very sweet!
Oh and hey!! I've got another project I did using the same Star Bright 3-D die, only this is a small quilted wall hanging, I hope you enjoy! :)
and a few more close ups...
