It's Samantha Walker Blog Hop Day!!!

And I have two super quick projects to share with you today! The first is a fun little pin cushion that I created using a (cleaned out) tuna can!!! Yup! I love using things others would throw away!





Samantha Walker Pin Cushion


The fabric is from the Cowboy collection by Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Designs. The paper is from the coordinating Cowgirl collection by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations! I love using these coordinating collections together! So fun!

My second project is a set of adorable clips made with the Ooh La La collection by Samantha Walker for Creative Imaginations!





Tea?  Clips


I covered basic clothespins with the papers and then cut the shapes with my Cricut. The vintage buttons add the finishing touch!

So I hope you join in the fun!!! Leave a comment and look for a prize at the beginning of the hop, too!
