Good Morning everyone! Woo Hoo!!! It is Friday!!!! So glad for the weekend. No big plans, which is a nice change to be honest.
Today I wanted to share with you a sweet little Home Decor piece I made using the Window Box die from Eileen Hull for Sizzix. This die is just so adorable, I couldn't wait to play.
Are you familiar with that cookie commercial...."get to the good part faster?" The decorating? Well, I started using matboard from Sizzix and let me tell you....It makes getting to the good part that much faster.
Matboard comes in a few different colors. I chose a white 6x13 piece for my project, since I knew I wanted a white window. Having the matboard already cut to the perfect size, the color being right, and the fact that it embosses beautifully (here I used the Wood Grain texture fade) meant I could get to assembling and decorating much more quickly.
A quick swipe of some Walnut Ink distress ink over the high points on my window....
And a more heavy hand with Tumbled Glass on the Window Box
before a quick swipe of Walnut Stain to distress.....
With the help of the simple instructions on the die package I was quickly able to assemble and embellish this burlap panel I found at my local Michaels.
Perfect for holding a few little odds and ends; a little note, a photo of my beautiful daughter and whatever else may show up.
I added just a few Prima flowers and a bit of bling to finish everything off. So bright and spring like.
Good Morning everyone! I am so excited to share with you today! I have been keeping a secret for quite a while now....Well, one secret I have been keeping for a while, and the other I have only been keeping for a week. Finally though, I am ready to share.
I have been invited to participate in a new blog from Darice, Live, Craft, Love I am so honored to be designing with all of the gorgeous things that this fabulous company has. And goodness, the team they have assembled. Be sure and check it out. My first post won't be up for a bit, but there is plenty of beautiful eye candy there already. Go check it out.
Next, I was chosen to be part of the Clear Scraps design team! So honored. Clear Scraps has such an interesting array of acrylic and chipboard items. I can't wait to get started. Such a talented group to be working with....I am just thrilled.
Oh, and another interesting bit of information. Lorine Mason, the creator of Banners of Hope...I am up over on her blog today discussing the thought process behind creating my banner. You can check it out here.
Good morning everyone! I hope all is well with you. Can you believe it is already March? eeek! So much going on here...it is killing me that I can't tell, but I should be able to spill soon.
Today I wanted to share with you a project I made using the gorgeous Optimist Collection from Prima. This paper has the most lovely chalkboard background (sorry about the off colors, so hard to get good photos this time of year with the funky light). It has been a while, but the girls decided they were going to do some mixed media canvases, fan art, for one of their favorite bands. They had so much fun creating, and you know I had to take photos of the process.
Kristina also has some of the most gorgeous embellishments to coordinate with these papers. Flowers, flair, paper clips, oh my.
Be sure and swing by the Your Memories Here store to check out all the goodies currently in stock.
Good morning everyone! Sorry I am a bit late, I have been under the weather...nothing serious, just a little cold, but I am moving rather slowly. That coupled with getting my house repiped this week. Ugh
Anyway, today I want to share with you this cute little suitcase box I made with my Eileen Hull for Sizzix die. This has got to be one of my all time favorite dies. I really love it, perfect for holding a little mini album, a gift card, small treasures.....
Cut out of mat board and then covered in some gorgeous Madeline papers from Prima and covered in some gorgeous Prima flowers and other miscellaneous laces, I just love the look of this little box.
I haven't quite yet decided what to do with it, but I am sure I will think of something soon.
Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share with you this little mixed media book box. This time of year my Michaels has started to clear out the organizational tools and these little boxes were on sale...woo hoo! As lovely as the cover was, you know I couldn't resist changing it up.
With a base layer of Prima Zephyr papers, lots of gorgeous mists from Lindy's Stamp Gang, gesso, and of course bunches of beautiful Prima Flowers I came up with this. Oh, and don't you just love those ribbon roses? those are KaiserCraft. Many of these goodies can be found in the Your Memories Here store.
This little box is perfect for tucking away secret treasures and notes. I can't wait to fill it. Thanks for stopping by.
