TBBM/Create a Crittter/A Child's Year

I've been MIA, but here are some pics of the latest little batch of goodies I've been working on. These little heart-shaped boxes are from TBBM, and they allow you to cut them with a little heart window without any fuss. To seal the windows shut I used Martha Stewart acetate and my ATG. To add emphasis to the shape I drew the faux stitching with my white Gelly Roll pen, and then embellished the other sides. On one side, each box got a different sticker from DCWV, and the remaining sides got a heart from A Child's Year, and the LOVE phrase from Create a Critter embellished with little buttons on the center of each heart. I actually decorated all sides of the boxes before gluing them together with my hot glue gun. This made it much easier to put them all together and made them nice & sturdy. To finish them off, I added cello bags with Valentine-colored M&M's. YUM!

Hummingbird Card

I made this little card today to inter in the weekly challenges a Cricut Cardz Challenge and BBTB2 . The first was to use the colors RED, WHITE, and BLACK in your card, the second was to use a hummingbird image. Recipe: Card base in black: 4.5" by 5ish inches-I wasn't accurate! Red mat : 4 4/16" by 5" Black mat: a little smaller-  dry embossed with Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots folder (my fav.!) Hummingbird: 3"from Disney Princesses DCT with two wings for dimension, dry embossed and de-embossed to soften the effect. Eye: Inkssentials Gloss in black. Flower : 2.45" from Gypsy Wanderings with Hearts at 1" from DP welded in center. Embossed to add shine, and popped with dimensional adhesive. Heart Layer: 1" also from DP. Tombo adhesive was used for everything else. The interior is matted in white, the small flower was made using the cut-outs from the larger flower and embossed. The border is a sticker from my stash. TFL!

Mini Book/ Playtime

I made this mini book known as the "Santa baby" from Paper phenomenon . Since it was after Christmas, I decided to make it with more of a  "Valentine" flair. It is for a little girl, and I used the new Playtime Cart available at Walmart with the E.  The cover is simple, since the little girl is very young so I only added 3 lil' stickers from my stash. This little girl is named Lauren- she is wearing bows in her air & matching piping on her dress-I also added buttons made of felt. I changed all the girls faces to suit my style... This is Tina- she's got a pearl in her bow & bling buttons. Her shirt is a little off- she had too many cupcakes I suppose! This is Jessica-she has a flower in her hair & her she's holding her cat who happens to have a lil' bitty pink nose! The hearts on her background are stamped and doodled on with a white-gel pen. This is Lucy-she's wearing 3 little flowers via Fiskars and the littl

Thank you cards/ Paisley

I made these thank you cards using the Paisley cart for the 1st time. I love owls, so naturally I wanted to use that image first. The frog prince is "charming" as well, so he was next. I added little bits of detail here & and there too... Her eyes are actually rhinestones on top of felted stickers. I also added those stickers to the centers of the flowers. So pretty! This little guy has embellished eyes finished off with black brads & his crown has stickles on it! The owl is sitting on self-adhesive ribbon, and the flowers were from my stash of embellishments.

Christmas Banner

Sorry people- New camera= no uploads of current activity. Therefore- this post is late, but better late than never. I will edit this post at a later time when I figure out what I used to make the banner. The pictures are finally here though!
