My New Venture - Julie's Girls ( Julie Nutting Dolls)

I joined a Club at Scrap-N-Yap ...learning techniques for making Julie's Dolls. I must admit I have the six original stamps and have had them for months but had not made not one doll until a couple of  weeks ago!  I love those dolls ( got them on my Pinterest). These people are so creative; I love collecting all these ideas. Well... yesterday I needed a break from my UFOs so I made a couple of dolls. I decided to make a Julie's  Girls Journal so I can take notes in it, when I learn new techniques ( you know at my age we think we'll remember stuff BUT you don't so I take notes when we meet.
So here is my Journal...
So fun ... so girlie 1 I used  #8 Julie Nutting Doll and papers from  Recollections "Fabulous Girl "
paper pad. These papers were so perfect, I knew when I saw the pad that I wanted these papers for my journal. I used Recollections white  glitter letters that I colorized with my distress markers. letters.
Not a good idea to handle them in 90 degree weather with sweat... yes sweat ( someone once told me women don't sweat we perspire... they LIED !!! ) running off your face and dripping on your hands. It smeared a little... oh well !! I love that I had small pearls, and dainty bows in my stash to use to embellish my doll. So fun !!  Well gotta get back to UFOs see you for my next challenges !

Oh... I forgot you might want to see some dolls I'm working on...
I'll share again when I complete them ( if I don't forget) ! Gotta go secure my work area now so cats don't get it ... time to put my foot up for awhile. It's 9:40 P.M. it is still 84 degrees here ... ugh!!
So happy my foot is only wrapped and not in a cast... I can ice it and it helps with the swelling! See you later :)


  1. Rea'-thanks so much for popping in to say Hello today! Loved! browsing your fun creations today! Those chics are so fun!!!!

  2. Ooooh how fun! Love the paper piecing! Have fun with the dolls!

  3. Thank you! And yes, so fun. Hope to do some more soon. Been hampered getting around for a few days ( guess it will be for a couple more weeks); I fractured my foot in August and it wasn't quite healing the way it should so I just got a cast last week and was told to stay off of it. Boomer... but I'm gonna get in some play time!!
