Paper Playtime Challenge #55 / A Child's Year

Hi There, I made this card for the Paper Playtime Challenge #55. Here's the recipe:
Card base: 4 1/4 " by 5 1/2".
Yellow polka dot mat: 4 2/16" by 5 5/16"
Coffee pot and cup with saucer: A Child's Year cartridge at : 2 1/2" and 1 1/2 " respectively, the same size was cut in white and I staggered them to create the shadow. I also used the Swiss Dot folder to dry emboss the orange layers.
"Enjoy" sentiment from Cosmo Cricket is double matted in orange and white cardstock in 1/16th increments.
Flowers are from My Minds eye, brad is from my stash.
For inside of card:
I used same polka dot paper to mat the inside, and added a double mat of black and white paper for sentiment cut at : 4 2/16" for the black, and 3 15/16" for the white. Alphabet stamps for sentiment are from Studio G. Felt flower is from my stash. Enjoy!
The challenge is to make an Easel/ Pedestal card.

Both pictures are of the card when opened. The little red felt flower will keep it standing.

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…

Memorable Moments Mini Album for Spring!

Hi friends,  I am so thrilled to be able to bring you a mini album perfect for Spring! I just finished this little beauty, full of little details and whimsy, in lovely shaped pages that will keep your eyes entertained!  I used Tonic Studios new Memorable Moments Keepsake Insert Creator dies for this stunning little beauty that contains 11 opportunities for photos in five interior pages, as well as both front and back covers. The front reads: Memorable Moments, and is embellished with a gathering of small glittered pink and white flowers, a sparkly bird cage, and a golden butterfly among other textures created with a small doily, rose gold trim, gauze, and shiny bling and pearls.
For the interior pages I also used dies from the Memory Book Maker Layered Cascade Die set. This is a lovely space to either write a small sentiment, or the name of the owner of this little book. I think any grandmother or mom would love to receive this on Mother's day as a little brag book, or mementos of…

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.
