Armoire and Card DT Project for Reneabouquets

Hi Crafters, Today I am sharing with you a beautiful Armoire and Card made with items from Reneabouquets, and Tonic Studios dies. I am using some lovely laces, beautiful board pieces, flowers and more, as well as Nuvo products to complete these pieces.  To begin, I have incorporated die cuts made with Tonic Studios Rustic Rose paper collection. I loved using all of these beautifully coordinating products!

The card was so much fun to make. I incorporated the gorgeous laces from Reneabouquets to make a shaker, and also used a small Printed Beautiful Board flower girl: Dahlia. She fit perfectly on the cover of this card, and the gorgeous white magnolia, altered with pink Nuvo drops is also from her store. All other handmade embellishments were made with Tonic Craft Kit 35. This allowed me to use the gorgeous shimmer powder to make the leaves, and add coordinating sequins.
The Armoire was absolutely gorgeous in pink and green, so I knew I wanted to add the Ivy leaves from Reneabouquets, as we…

Moments In Time Mini Album using Tonic Studios dies for my 3K Giveaway Challenge!! (official rules included)

Hi Crafty friends!  This is a special post sharing a Mini Album I have made using Tonic Studios Moments in Time Designer's Choice Dies #10. laces and Beautiful Board pieces from Reneabouquets, and papers from DCWV. I am so excited to be hosting a Giveaway Challenge on my Youtube channel and am including this in the giveaway as my way of thanking you, my subscribers, for supporting my channel and crafty ventures! 
(*This Mini album and items given away on my channel are from my own personal purchases, not sponsored by any social media channel or company.)
As you can see, this mini album has a lovely soft-muted palette. I refrained from using darker colors, and only used the green and peach tones included in the paper collection I selected. To finish the cover, I used a Tree of Live ATC card piece. I cut off the small handle that comes with this piece, and used it as a small frame. The cover also includes Peach colored Wide lace from Reneabouquets, and a golden trim from Michael's. …

Tree of Life Loaded Wedding Frame: Reneabouquets Design Team Project

Hi Crafters, Today I bring you this loaded Tree of Life Frame Chipboard Kit and Mini Album made with Tonic Studios Keepsake Book Maker Dies. I knew the moment I saw this gorgeous Beautiful Board piece, that I would enjoy working with all of its intricate detail! It was a perfect opportunity to play with my acrylic paints and Nuvo drops also!

I thought of this as a great bridal gift, and to give an example, inserted a picture of my wedding as a sample. To match the picture, I painted the Beautiful board pieces with white acrylic paint, followed by several other acrylic paints in blues, greens, pink, lavender, and yellow. Using a small brush, I added detail to the small ivy, and using dry-brush and splatter techniques, I was able to give the frame a speckled look incorporating all the mentioned colors. 
It was the perfect touch to add Reneabouquet mulberry flowers to adorn this frame in soft pink and seafoam. This allowed the flowers to stand out. A small Tiny Treasure Lissie Glitter Glass…

I have used Beautiful Board pieces, laces, and jingle bells on my projects, as well as the prettiest Beautiful Board snowflakes you could ever imagine! These projects were so much fun to make!

Below you can see how I also added shine to the Beautiful Board Linda's Love Flakes by using Tonic Nuvo drops and Mermaid Tail colored Glass beads from Renea's shop. I also made a whimsical rosette out of vellum, and added pom poms to resemble snowballs. I finished this cover with small gems to make it shine!
