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 little cakes behind her are all glossied up as well as hand painted.
Back to LAuren-she's pointing at the bird. It opens up to reveal a little journaling spot.
She's singing "Why am I such a misfit? I am not just a nitwit...."

I also used puffy stickers on some of the pages rather than doing more inserts. 
This lil' piggy went to the market & got the bling treatment too. The scallop border  belongs to the insert for that page.
Here's another page with ribbon and embossing-love my cuttlebug!

inside...

Another sticker on the spine & ribbon ties it shut on the other side. Hope you like it!

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
