Graphic 45 Altered Gift Card Holder

Graphic 45 Altered Gift Card Holder

I altered this gift card holder from Michael's using Graphic 45 French Country paper.  I used the Graphic 45 wash tape to line the sides of the card holder and then accented with the paper line.  I used some of the chipboard pieces, fussy cut some of the papers and used some lace and twine.  I love the french saying Joie de vivre which means a cheerful enjoyment of life….its perfect for a celebration whether its an anniversary, birthday or a congratulations!  It was fun and easy to create!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:

La La Land Spring Marci Card

La La Land Spring Marci Card

Hi Guys!  Just wanted to post a card I created this weekend late one night!  I was in the mood to color and thought I would whip up a card real quick.  this is what I came up with.  Spring is in the air and what better way to welcome it than to create using this adorable stamp from the April 2015 Kit.  Spring Marci is so adorable and she was a lot of fun to color.  I used several dies from the kit and I also used the Heart Doily die from La La Land Crafts.  I used a bunch of flowers and instead of coloring the bouquet in her hand I used flowers instead.   I even added a cute butterfly! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  Back to work tomorrow for most of us.  Enjoy your evening and thank you for stopping by!

Stampin Bella-Brett & Brenda Get Married

Stampin Bella Card

I created this card using Stampin Bella's adorable stamp Brett & Brenda Get Married.  I wanted to create this card to reflect the bride and groom for a friend who was attending their wedding.  It was a special day and I wanted to incorporate the wedding colors on the card.  I layered the patterned paper and added some elements to the card.  I wanted to keep the card simple and wanted the image to be the highlight!  I added some stickler to her dress to make her dress pop-its hard to see in the picture!  This was such a fun card to make. Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog.  
Happy Crafting!

I  used the Filigree corner die to accent the top corners of the card.  I used one of the butterflies from the Butterflies Set 1 collection and layered it with a flower.  I layered the card with lace and flatback pearls also.

Graphic 45 By The Sea Bottle Set & Holder

Hello Everyone!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!  It's Monday and the start of a new week.  I found some time this past week to spend time doing what I love…..CREATING!  I bought this set of bottles and holder at Michael's.  When I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do to alter it and of course it called for Graphic 45's By The Sea Collection.  I did a little bit of fussy cutting using the collection.  I accented the bottles with paper, cutouts from the paper collection,  rope and seashells. This collection reminds me of the beaches on the East Coast and screams seaside summer.   I decided to create this this so that I can have a place to collect my sea glass and shell collections.  I love to go shelling and sea glass collecting.  I have a love of the ocean and beaches.  I am blessed enough to spend so much time at the beach. 
I will be posting other projects that I was able to create this past week so stop by often to see what I have been up to.  Hope everyone has a great week!!!
