Sweet Dreams Baby Afghan

Sweet Dreams Baby Afghan is an elegant, lacy pattern from Terry Kimbrough. I love the feel and flow of this blanket and in all white it would be a perfect christening blanket or a sweet show piece to accent the basinet or crib. I chose Red Hearts Babyhugs 100% acrylic yarn, machine washable and dryable on the delicate cycle.  The project shown above colors are in Pinkie and Dolphin Grey. The softness of the yarn and light weight was perfect and gave me great result’s it measures 31″ x 40″. The pattern can be found on Ravelry  and in booklet form from your local craft store. The booklet I purchased was The Best of Terry Kimbrough’s Baby Afghans, a Leisure Art book release.

Cost for this blanket is $85.00 for the multi-colored blanket or $70.00 for the solid colored version. It can be paired as a giftset with booties and a beanie or what ever your heart desires to bless that precious little one God has gifted you and your family.

Regal Baby Boy Chevron Crochet Blanket

This baby boy blanket was crocheted using Vanna’s Chioce Kelly green (by clients request) and Bernat Baby Cream 4 worsted weight yarn. The stitches used are shells and double crochet slant stitch in a single crochet chevron pattern. The body of this pattern is my own abbreviated version of the best of Mary Maxine’s Rippled Wave Blanket. The edging I created using shell and picot clusters.

Versatile Crochet Hat


This hat was created for my sister in Christ Rev. Gloria Garner, she was being honored at her church for her and her Husbands Pastoral Anniversary to SAFCOG. I wanted to gift her with one of my crochet creations because she has been such a wonderful supporter of my talents and a good friend. So after I was challenged by OVW on YouTube to make a cable ear flap hat that OVW designed and taught I put on my creative cap grabbed a piece of graph paper and this is what I came up with. To see the black ear flap hat check out my Crochet hat and Scoodie page above.

For the pattern to the Black Cable Textured Beanie that inspired my hat check out Onevirtuouswoman on YouTube.

Leah’s Cards Wedding Program



Hey Crafters!

I know it’s been a while since I uploaded a post but I have been very busy. I thought you may like to see the latest project I had to create for my good

friend, Pastor Mark Bethune’s wedding.

It is a metallic gate fold ceremony program.

I created it from 8-1/2 x 14 card stock and glossy brochure 35lbs white 8-1/2 x 14 paper.               Here’s the inside view image

I had purchased a new product from Crafters Companion called the Cut’N’ Boss. It was wonderful to use and great for helping me emboss 100 program. It saved my arm and I was grateful for not having to crank them manually. The machine is similar to the Tim Holtz Vaga Bond but it allows me to cut and emboss larger mediums as well as the Sizzix and Spellbinders folders and Dies I currently use.

I really enjoyed using it and If you are in the market for an automatic die cutter and embosser it is definitely worth a look at. The only con I have is it isn’t the fastest machine on the market but it really does a great job and I can be patient with it since it gives me such great results.

I also created a couple of prototypes for the couple to choose from that I will post below.

If you are interested in purchasing any of my designs or the Cut’N’Boss,  please contact me at http://www.LeahsCards@live.com

Thanks for stopping by,

Have a wonderful and blessed day!
