So excited to have finished this really cute box card by Creative Kuts
I just had to share it!!
 
 This Snowman and Penguin are having some fun in the snow!
Aren't they adorable?
 I love that these box cards can fold up flat so you can mail them in an envelope.
They are super addicting and have a bunch to show off really soon!!
So stay tuned!! Lots of cuteness to come...
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  My Mom & Me

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!!
 

 

Today is my first post with Miss Kate Cuttables and I am so super excited to be able to share my project featuring Miss Kate Cuttables' darling SVG files!!

But first, did you know that Miss Kate Cuttables gives away a free file everyday?
YES, absolutely FREE. So what are you waiting for, head over there and get your free file now!!
Freebie of the Day
 
I created this whimsical layout of me and my boys taken a few years ago on my birthday.
I never get a chance to create girly pages and even though there is a "boy" version to this file, I knew I wanted to use the girly, flowery version of My Mom & Me. So glad I did!





The flowers in this file are just gorgeous! They really make the layout pop! I love the different layers and by adding pop dots I was able to really give the bouquets life.
 

 Other Items Used:

Cardstock
Patterned Paper by Authentique 
Pop Dots
Gold Sequins
CTMH Chocolate Ink


I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Wonderful Friend Quilled Card

Pin It
Hello my crafty friends!!
 
 

Today is my first post with 3 Girl Jam and I am so excited to be able to share my project featuring the yummy 3 Girl Jam products I love!

 I have had this quilling kit from 3 Birds for some time now and thought it was time to bust it out and create my first quilled card ever. I knew 3 Girl Jam would compliment this card beautifully and I was right! 


I added some Jute Ribbon in Sunflower and Natural along the bottom to accent the banner. And added a big bow created with my 3GJ bow maker and Sunflower Crinkle Ribbon from the Harvest Bundle just below the window.
 
 
The quilled flowers peek right through the window and add lots of dimension to this card. Not too shabby for a first try at quilling. Although I will admit I am not a huge fan of this technique. Maybe I should stick to paper piecing! LOL!

 
Other Items Used:

Cardstock
 
Pop Dots

Gold Pearls

Today I have two projects to share with you.
The first is a Prima Ornament
decorated with Prima's gorgeous paper collection
"North Country Collection"


Now I know it's too late to change her hair color but if I  would have made her hair blonde she could have become Elsa. In any case I think she came out darling. The paper, added snowflakes and bling bring her to life!


My second project is this flakey fun card!!
My new Explore cut out the most amazing snowflakes and swirls all from
a Miss Kate Cuttables File. It worked perfectly for my card design.



My adorable Olaf is actually chipboard. I embossed him and stamped him.
I hope to show you a video of this technique very soon!!
Stay tuned!

  Prima Music Box

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!

I hope you all had a very blessed Christmas and are ready for an amazing 2015!
I know I am!!
Today I am sharing this adorable Music Box I bought at the Prima Outlet in Chino.
I just knew I had to alter this and give it to my son's girlfriend for Christmas.
 

When you take off the lid there is an adorable layout of my son looking all dapper. I embellished this mini page with lots of Prima flowers, jewels and trinkets. It even has a tag that says you and me! So sweet!
 
 
The silver Music Box was painted with Black Chalkboard paint and then I wrapped some pretty Prima paper around the outside and embellished it like crazy. I think it is beautiful and so did she.
Inside we also added a gift card for her to go shopping at one of her favorite stores.
 
can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!
