WOYWW #523....

Good Wednesday morning my friends and fellow deskers!  It is once again time for us to show off our desks and what we have going on in our world!  If you are curious about this little bit of madness just head over to Stamping Ground and have a look around.  Julia has all the instructions listed there for you if you would like to participate!

I am working on a folio using some old Graphic 45 papers I have in my stash called Botanical Tea.  I think this was released again recently for a printing so customers could have it again for a short time.  I had this terrible habit of hoarding my paper and not using it so now I'm pulling it out and cutting into it and I have to admit it is hard for me.  I'm a "true hoarder" when it comes to my paper!  When I finish this I will share it with you!

Of course this isn't my desk but I have been working with these petunias to get them to take hold and start to grow.  They never wilted when I transplanted but just didn't take off and grow until now.  I have fed them twice and they are beginning to come up over the lip of the planter so they can be seen.  Miracle Gro is a good thing!

Well that's it for me this morning...I'm off to visit as many fellow deskers as I can.  Have a great rest of the week!

All Aflutter....

Good morning friends!  Hope you are doing well and are ready to face this brand new week.  I'm here this morning to share another card I have made using some older supplies out of my craft room.  I'm on a mission to use some of the older papers I have accumulated. I have looked around and they are everywhere! 

The papers are from a Graphic 45 collection called Secret Garden.  I have cut into this paper pad before and find that I still love it just as much as I did back then!  I used the Regal Frame and Accents Die from Heartfelt Creations, and the little flowers are from the Floral Fashionista collection, also from Heartfelt Creations.  Do you notice the detail on the petals?  That is from the shaping mold...(HCFB1-471 3D Petite Florals Shaping Mold). I have found since I'm getting older and arthritis is ever present these shaping molds are a life saver.  You can make many flowers with one of these and it doesn't kill your joints to shape them!  (It's a very good thing!)

WOYWW #522 - Album in a Box with Lush Lilacs

Good morning everyone!  It's Wednesday and time to share what's on my workdesk!  If you would like to know about WOYWW just head over to Julia's blog (The owner and creator of WOYWW)
She has all the information there if you would like to come join us.

I have been working on this Album for about a week or so and just wanted to share with you.  I just went ahead and shot a video of it so please don't be too critical because it is done with my holding the phone in one hand and trying to flip pages with the other.

I hope you enjoyed my little video of what has been on my workdesk!  It is my first effort to make one of these Albums and I really like how it turned out!

Now I'm off to visit as of the other deskers as I can!  Have a great day!

Once Upon a Springtime Folio.....

Good Monday morning everyone!  Hope you are ready for the new week to begin.  I'm here this morning to share a Folio I have made using the G45 Once Upon a Springtime paper collection.  This is part of an 8 X 8 paper pad from the original collection that was retired. 

I kept this sort of plain as I just really wanted the gorgeous papers to tell their own story here.

The top page of the inside of the folio has a side pocket with a little notebook made and inserted.  You could journal inside if you wanted.

This bottom page of the Folio has a pocket with a Herbal teabag and a honey stick inserted.  What a sweet gift for someone dear to you.

I have been looking around my craftroom at all the supplies on hand and decided I really need to use these things so dear to me.   It is past time for me to cut into these papers so look forward to more of these older papers coming soom!

Inspirational Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations....

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you I will not be continuing on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team for the upcoming year and this is my final Wednesday Post for them.  It is time to do other things for awhile and I have many projects that I am anxious to do on my own.  I will transition over onto the Alumni Design Team and I will be back once a month for their blog hop.  I look forward to being a part of this team as there is so much talent there!

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". Make card base and cover with a piece of the pretty paper collection.
Stamp the flower petals with yellow ink and use a dauber to color the centers of the petals. Color the leaves with Fern Green ink and color with a dauber. Cut out using the coordinating dies. Lay flower petals and leaves onto the mold and spritz with water. Run through the Vagabond 2 and then lay out to dry. Once dry, glue two petals together to make flower. Add Prills to the centers and sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry. Once dry, decide on placement on card front and glue down.

Pick out a sentiment from the paper and cut out; edge with purple ink and use dimensional tape to adhere to the top of the card.
