Christmas December Daily (pp1-2)

Hi friends! 
The Christmas season has begun, and this year I'm making a December Daily to go along with celebrations and memory making!
I used my Tonic Craft Kit #15 for this quick and easy project. This allowed me to cut out all of the pages I intend to use, as well as all of the journaling cards in one day!
Easy Peasy!
I began with the Authentique Colorful Christmas Collection, and some adorable dies from my stash. My cover has a cut-out from the collection, and I layered it onto a snowflake frame, as well as a photo mat die, and then embellished it with a gingerbread man, Vintage Christmas lights, and sequined tulle.

The Red Cardinal has a huge significance for me, so I incorporated him onto my cover. I wanted him to look extra special, so I spruced him up using red and black ink, as well as glossy accents
For my first page, I began with a little Gingerbread couple sticker from the collection. This is neatly tucked into a small envelope I created using the WeRMemory keepers mini envelope punch board.
I found this little tool to be very handy with little leftover pieces of paper!
With other stickers and die cuts, I created a scene, and my journaling card fits nicely behind all of it, as I created a pocket where it slides in perfectly!!
I also decided to use the Keepsake Book Maker Photos and Filmstrips die set. I think this will be the easiest way to add little pictures if I feel they are needed, and I love that it also includes phrases that fit perfectly in my little December Daily!
Here I have incorporated the Photo Die cut as well as the sentiment Believe, and the filmstrip along the bottom of the page.
The penguin sticker was a gift from my hubby, and he fits nicely onto the page, adding sparkle with a trail of bubbles!

Here is what the entire page looks like!

Every piece is part of the happenings of that particular day, and pieces of ephemera also fit into the pockets I created using the photo mats and small gussets. 
I look forward to continuing this project, and hope to share each step with you!
Watch the video if you prefer to hear the details!

I hope that you can Be inspired, and Be Blessed!!

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.
