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.

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!

Hummingbird Card

I made this little card today to inter in the weekly challenges a Cricut Cardz Challenge and BBTB2. The first was to use the colors RED, WHITE, and BLACK in your card, the second was to use a hummingbird image.
Card base in black: 4.5" by 5ish inches-I wasn't accurate!
Red mat : 4 4/16" by 5"
Black mat: a little smaller-  dry embossed with Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots folder (my fav.!)
Hummingbird: 3"from Disney Princesses DCT with two wings for dimension, dry embossed and de-embossed to soften the effect.
Eye: Inkssentials Gloss in black.
Flower : 2.45" from Gypsy Wanderings with Hearts at 1" from DP welded in center. Embossed to add shine, and popped with dimensional adhesive.
Heart Layer: 1" also from DP.
Tombo adhesive was used for everything else.
The interior is matted in white, the small flower was made using the cut-outs from the larger flower and embossed. The border is a sticker from my stash. TFL!
