Give Away - AccuQuilt at Qubee Quilts

Okay... this weekend I am a hopeless giveaway blogger.  My apologies, LOL!  But, I found one more giveaway I have to post about.  There is another AccuQuilt Giveaway going on at Qubee Quilts.  I want an AccuQuilt so desperately that I have taken to searching (using SwagBucks of course) for AccuQuilt giveaways. 

They used the AccuQuilt with the circle die cut set at Sewing Club to create easy to position appliques.  All I can think about now is how great it would be, and how easy it would be, to use an AccuQuilt to create Holiday table scarves.  You could use these two die sets to create wonderful holiday decorations! 

How they did the applique shapes, was they used Steam-A-Seam 2 and applied it to the fabric to be cut.  Then centered the fabric under the size circle they wanted, and rolled it on through the AccuQuilt.  The way she did it there was not much fabric waste (no more than if you had been cutting the circle by hand), and the plus side was that you had the Steam-A-Seam 2 and the fabric both cut at the same time in a perfectly round circle.  How easy is that?!?!? 

By applying the Steam-A-Seam 2 to the fabric before cutting you have perfectly applied the adhesive.  Then all you need to do is peel the second side of the Steam-A-Seam 2 and place the shape where you want it.  Look at the shapes above.  How easy would it be to cut them out perfectly?  That is my point and why I am so coveting an AccuQuilt at the moment!

So, go ahead and take a moment to go enter the giveaway for your own chance to win this wonderful gizmo!

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
