Have a Chevron Craving?



Hi bloggers! TGIF! I've noticed lately that almost everywhere I look, I see this little pleasing pattern.  It could be in Simon Says Stamp or my local clothing store.  Chevron and/or Zig Zag is everywhere!  Just take a look at the amazing card made above by Jennifer McGuire?  Check out the supplies below to make a similar gorgeous creation!
 




I'm really loving this design, simple and beautiful.  The stitching is gorgeous and the stickle 'sugar' rim is the perfect touch! Check out Frances Byrne's blog for even more gorgeous creations, and to get started on a similar creation, check out the supplies below.





This little cutie, instantly made me smile! I love the pun of course, and the finishing touch of twine.  Check out the Flickr station HERE to find more incredibly clever creations by this artist!




BLOG CANDY ALERT! Join our following and comment on this blog and you could win this not for resale Hero Arts Stamp set pictured below! Winner to be announced on Monday, good luck!

  37. Loving the chevron craze. Of course, I am old enough to remember when they were 'big' before. Jennifer's card, as always, is great. Love that ribbon.
    The "it's 5 o'clock" card is great. Am going to have to remember to use patterned paper paper more.
    The sheep card is great too. My grandkids other grandmother raises sheep and the kiddos love them.
