Gorguss Girl Pocket Tags


Hi all,
I am sharing some Pocket Tags I made for a recent swap. I decided to use the Simple and Clean style, as well as some adorable stamped images from Santoro London's Gorguss Girl Collection.
I simply loved how they turned out, and hope that you also enjoy them!
First, I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut out scalloped edge tag pockets. This image cut out with a small window, but I decided that a matching scalloped tag would be the perfect addition as a backdrop to the required embellishments and sentiments.
Here is my 1st pocket:
I stamped and colored the Gorguss girl, and added a banner, heart, butterfly and bow dies from Brenda Walton's collection for Sizzix. I am loving this set, and thing it's absolutely adorable!

On the inside tag,I used a Sizzix embossing folder to add texture to the backdrop of the Postage Stamp shaped tag. To finish it, I also added the bicycle embellished with pearls, and topped it with a tiny heart tag and twine.  

I followed the same design with my second tag, which I also embellished with a second, smaller tag created with my Cricut. This time I embellished it with a Tim Holtz heart shape cut in silver card, as well as a gem, an acrylic red flower, a silk red flower, and another Gorguss girl. The sentiment, from Heidi Swapp, reads Cherish Each Day, and the inside of the pocket is finished with my Swiss dot embossing folder.

Following are some videos that display these makes, as well as the entries of the swap and other details. Be inspired, Be blessed! -Raquel

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.
