Shake Baby Shake!!

Thank you for stopping by!
Who doesn't like a shaker card? Amiright? Recently, I too, have succumbed to this need to make a card with glitter bits and interaction. These were made with the traditional acetate, and lots of room for shine!
I used the Delicate Bow die from Crafter's Companion, and it suited my card perfectly!

 I used sentiment dies that I glued to the background, so if you take a closer peek, you will catch the words "Smile, Happy, and Fun" in the background. The rest is purely glimmer. 
Recipe: Dies from AliExpress

Recollections Sequins


Here is another take on the same concept, just in time for the 4th of July!!
For this awesome card, I got my son to play along. He did most of the assembly, and I helped with the more tedious parts. It shimmers beautifully in the light!

Sentiment: Cricut Explore Air 2
Dies: AliExpress.

I hope you give this style of card a try. With a little patience, the results are totally worth it!
Be inspired, Be blessed- Raquel

Flowers with Cricut Design Space, and Cricut Explore Air 2.

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.

I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!


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.

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!
