Valentine Accordion Card/ Gypsy/ TBBM/ George

In honor of tomorrow's celebration, here is a little Valentine card with a vintage look, yet some modern applications. (sounds fancy huh?) I used George for the simple heart on the cover, and cut around it to give it a fringe and add texture. The heart topped mini tag has pearls added to it, and some scissors tied with twine. The flower is stamped twice, and I added a skittle to the center (millions of those, need to be used). On the inside, I added an accordion to give the card depth and on it I placed the heart that opens, and added little post cards. The "LOVE" stamp is stamped twice, and I fussy cut the letters to pop them. May Valentine's day be a reminder of love to you as well!!
Two ribbons, a stamped flower, fringed heart, pearls.

I tied the scissors with twine.

The heart opens to reveal the message. Leaving plenty of room on the card to write a personalized message.

Here's a close-up of the letters. I used dimensional adhesive to pop those.

The little post cards reminded me of a"desk" scene. 

The small pink heart in the center is also heat embossed, and has a bit of glimmer to it.  I also added pink twine to the larger heart, completed with a bow.

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.

My Book of Special Memories Mini Album with Tonic Studios Dies

Hi friends,  I am here with a brand new set of dies from Tonic Studios and yet another adorable mini album! This one is perfect for a little girl, a mother of a little girl, or a cat lover, or all of the above! I am thrilled with this collection of dies, and how easily I am able to put paper on pages to assemble the perfect little personalized gift!

On the cover, and throughout, I have used the  CUTE GIRL collection from Crate Paper. As a cat-lover, I could not resist, and the floral designs were easy to repeat with the layered Tonic die-cut that I assembled and colored using Nuvo Pens and Nuvo Glitter pen. The little roses all have some sparkle!

The cluster of flowers is all handmade by yours truly, and I used Sizzix Dies by Tim Holtz, felt, and small pearls that I stitched together.  The cat, butterfly, and flower buttons helped me complete the look. Adorable!!

The spine of a book is equally as important as the front. So for this, I used all the little strips left over from my favor…

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!
