Shabby Chic Mini album with Doily Dreams digital papers!

Hi friends, 
I have been so blessed to have won the amazing paper collection titled Doily Dreams. Designed by Carolyn from Teatime and Dolls. It is such a feminine and pretty collection, and each paper is shabby and beautiful! 

I decided on making a mini album that was simple, but beautiful.
On the cover, I made a small shaker element using one of the ephemera pieces. It is a lovely birdcage, housing a vintage dress-form, covered in flowers. 

To mimic the elements found in the paper line, I used flowers, butterflies, and birdhouses.
 The sentiment scroll on the cover was inspired by the lovely script also found in the paper line.
The laces are also very elegant and match the papers perfectly!

The front and back inside covers have delicate touches with scrolled photo corners and blue pearls. 
Each page features one of the lovely papers from this collection, and all have a little tuck spot for photos or your favorite notes. 
To add a soft touch, I decided to make added tags in Vellum, with embossed sentiments. All page fronts also have vintage laces on the bottom borders. This kept is pretty, and soft.  
Some of the ephemera from the collection is seen here also.

Of course a Shaker Tag had to be included. I used the same pretty papers, added golden tulle, pompoms, pearls, trims, a heart-shaped doily, and painted a beautiful birdcage in colors to match.
Even the back of this mini album is spectacular to look at.
I hope this has inspired you to make your own! 
Visit Carolyn for this spectacular paper collection. You will love it!!
Be inspired, Be Blessed- Raquel

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!
