Raindrops on Roses Mini Album Video

Good morning everyone and welcome to my corner of the world.  We are dodging raindrops in these parts and I just wanted to come along and share my Raindrops on Roses mini album video that I made using the Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses paper collection.  I followed along with the Shellie Geigle videos about this paper collection and used the same methods to create the album!

I had so much fun making this video and hope to make more in the future!  Since this is only my second ever video, please be kind!

Well that does it for me this morning...try and stay cozy and dry!

Let's Celebrate The USA! Stars and Stripes...

Good morning everyone.  A while back I was asked to join the Dies R Us Challenge design team and jumped at the chance to be a part of this talented team!  This morning I'm sharing my very first creation for them and I must say, I couldn't be happier! Dies R Us has a great selection of dies and their shipping rates are extremely low for both domestic (US) and international shipments! And I have to add that everything arrives in pristine condition!  What a joy to be associated with such a class act!

I had so much fun creating this fun card to celebrate the upcoming July 4th. holiday! Since our theme for this challenge is Stars and Stripes I used a Red, White and Blue color scheme and glittered the stars!

Now get busy and create something to go along with the Stars and Stripes theme and link it to the Dies R Us Challenge blog.  You have until July 13th. to enter this challenge!  I look forward to seeing what you create!

June Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Good morning everyone!  Well here we are again at the end of another month and I'm here to be a part of another Alumni Design Team Blog Hop for Heartfelt Creations!  I always love to be a part of these blog hops because I love being with the past designers of Heartfelt Creations and believe me there is some awesome talent here!

There will be a $25 gift certificate for one lucky person.  You must visit as many of the participating designers and leave a comment on each blog because we never know from which blog the winner will be chosen.

This month I decided to make a tag using the Blazing Poppies stamps and dies that I just received!  I love these flowers and they were such fun to color and shape.  I started out with white card stock and used Ranger Distress inks to color my flower petals.  (Barn Door and Orange Marmalade)  I put black seed beads for the center of my flower and I love the finished product.  My little tag was cut out of my Blazing Poppy paper pad and that is about all I had the nerve to cut away.  I still need to hold it, flip through the gorgeous pages and just hoard it for a bit before I actually use any of it!  I colored seam binding to match the flower and I love how it turned out!

You have until Midnight, July 3rd. to leave a comment on as many of our blogs as you can.  The winner of the $25 gift certificate will be announced on Saturday July 4th.  Good luck to everyone!

A New Size Format For Me.....

Good morning everyone and welcome to my corner of the world!  I spent the day yesterday resting with my feet up.  With yard and garden and every day chores, my life is quite frantic sometimes and the wind just went out of my sails. It was nice to spend the day chilling with my girls (Maggie and Bella).

I have been seeing a lot of 8 X 8 cards out there and love the idea of them and decided to try one to see how I felt about it.  Well I think I love them!

There is a lot of real estate here and I love the larger format.  It gives you lots of room to do all kinds of things.  I kept this one sort of simple but the possibilities are endless!  I used some pretty design paper and a Sue Wilson edge die called Perseus from the Gemini collection.  A few layers some seam binding and a few more flowers and this one is all set.  I will probably purchase some 11 X 17 white paper so I can make envelopes to accommodate these.  I could do a box if I would want to be sure my pretty scrunched bow stays in good condition.  Look at me, I'm almost scrapbooking!

I'm working on my video for my mini-album using the Raindrops on Roses paper collection from Heartfelt Creations.  That will be coming soon so stay tuned.
Also be sure and come back tomorrow as that is the day we do the Heartfelt Creations Alumni blog hop.  I have something pretty to share with you!

Well that does it for me this morning.  Hope you have a good day and that you get to do something you love!

The Sisterhood of Crafters New Challenge - Wedding Time of Year...

Good morning everyone and welcome to a brand new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!  ("Wedding")  Make a wedding card or project. I did a wedding explosion box!

This was a total labor of love. The wedding colors are navy blue and lavender and it was difficult to find ink colors to match the color of flowers I needed but this was very close.  I made handmade roses and leaves using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies and Spellbinders Foliage dies. I suspended the silver rings on a wire so they are always standing ready to be viewed.  This is to be a gift containing money for the bride and what better way to celebrate than to pop off the top of this box and be greeted by these pretty flowers and rings.  I'm hoping this will become a keepsake for the bride and that she will have it for many years.

This is a photo close-up of the top of the box.  This light actually shows the color of the flowers better than the others.  They were a pretty lavender color and
The side of the lid had some modeling paste stenciled on to add another touch of  texture.

These boxes take a bit of time but at the end of the day, they are well worth the extra effort!  Now get busy and make a card or project for a wedding and link to: The Sisterhood of Crafters!  I can't wait to see what you make!

My box was inspired by two friends of mine...Olga Jewell and Selma Stevenson. Both these ladies did beautiful explosion boxes that just took my breathe away!

I'm entering my project in the following challenges:
All Crafts Challenge - Anything but a card.
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Not Just Cards Challenge - Always Anything Goes

Navy Blue and White Cardstock
Homemade Modeling Paste
