Christmas Hope

Christmas Hope

I wanted a decoration for my house so decided to do this picture frame. I used the back side of the frame as a shadow box. I colored Hope with my Copics. This was a lot of fun to make. I also handmade the poinsettias on the frame from a die. I can display her year after year.

Darling Layout

Darling Layout

Love the way this layout came out of my precious Little Miss Sunshine!.  I layered papers from Marion Smith's Garment District.   I layered the elements from the Garment District paper also and popped them up so it was dimensional.  I used some of the Junque & Gems including Resin Cream Rose and Geared Up.  I also took some of Marion's glitter stamens and bunched them up and glued them along side some roses....who says stamens need to be used only in the middle of flowers!  This was so much fun and the Garment District paper collection is so pretty and versatile.  Thanks for stopping by!!!!

Bloom Girl Tag!

Bloom Girl Sophie Tag

Creating this tag was so much fun using the Sophie stamp from Jamie Dougherty's Bloom Girl Collection!   I wanted to give her some island flair and decided to use the Seashore collection from Prima.  I also stamped and embossed the entire tag with aloha written in different fonts for a neat background effect.  I used some elements from the paper collection too! I used lots of flowers and sea shells and a bit of burlap.  She is so pretty and I love the way she turned out!  

Fun Christmas Tag

Fun Christmas Tag

This was such a fun and quick tag to make.  I used a kraft tag and stamped it with the Festive Cheer stamp from Fun Stampers Journey using their Whip Cream Ink Pad.  I layered FSJ Festive Patterns paper and added a bit of lace peaking out.  I used La La Lands Christmas Elf Marci and colored it with my Copics.  I popped the image up with FSJ Foam Squares for dimension on top of the card stock.  I created a ribbon using FSJ Cocoa Powder Gingham Ribbon and used the same ribbon for the tie at the top.  I placed a button tied with twine on top of the bow and some Christmas embellishments I had in my stash. I edged the tag with glass bead gel and some FSJ Journey Sparkle Dust to make it extra sparkly.  Who doesn't love sparkle?  It is adorable and I love the way it came out.  Such a quick and easy tag to make for a gift for that special someone anyone!  I make these as tags and then people can use them as ornaments for years to come!!!!

Keepsake Albums

Family Keepsake Album

 This adorable album is made using the Accucut Door Album.  I painted the cover and crackled it and then embellished it with I Am Roses and a Prima stamp.  I created the box for it using black paint, stencil and gold paint to accent it with.  I also added I Am Roses and Foundations Box Feet.  I added ribbon to the rings and a tie using satin black ribbon.  Though out the book I used different elements from Prima, I am Roses, Want To Scrap, 7 Gypsies, Tim Holtz, Bazzill, dies and ribbon.  I used a ribbon tie closure so it can be closed and look nice. I enjoyed making this album and box to hold it so that it can be treasure for years to come.

50th Anniversary Keepsake Album

Using Simple Stories paper line I created this album for a 50th anniversary.  I decorated the cover using embellishments from Tim Holtz, I Am Roses, Sizzix and elements from the paper line.  Throughout the book I embellished using elements from the paper line.  I wanted to keep this book clean and simple so the focus would be on the pictures.  I used a ribbon closure so it can be nicely tied and look nice sitting on a table or cabinet.   I gave them plenty of room to document and write notes in it so that it will become a family heirloom for their children and grandchildren.  It was an honor to be able to do this for this special couple.

Kaisercraft Beyond The Page LOVE

Using Kaisercraft Beyond The Page Love I created this using many layers of different mediums.  I used wash tape and modeling paste.  I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang and edged it with distress ink in walnut stain.  I accented it with I Am Roses and a bit of Prima embellishments.  It can be hung on the wall just like that or a picture can be inserted in the O.  Love how this came out!
