Ethereal Mini Album

Hi friends, 

today I am sharing with you the sweetest little Ethereal Mini Album made with Items from Reneabouquets!

I incorporated items to make a soft and tender looking book that will be a very special keepsake.
On the cover:  A Victorian Heart Doily tops the paper covered Beautiful Board Tag. I also added elements to complete this cover with whimsy; the butterfly on the lower right cover is from printed Beautiful Board, and comes as a set with other pieces, including the tag. The silver crown and fairie are reminiscent of children's story books, which always inspire me. To ground this cover I cut pieces of the Beautiful Board Heart Lattice, Roses topped with Glass Glitter and Moonstones, a small skeleton leaf filled with champagne Micro beads, and the heart is covered with the glitter and beads, and topped with a gorgeous Tiny Treasures Sweet Pea Baby Blue Premium Paper Glitter Glass Butterfly

The book opens with a vintage bow topped with a  White Pearl And Rhinestone Button.


 For the Spine and Back cover of this Mini Album, I wanted to continue the garden-like feel. I covered the spine with Ivory Wide Floral Embroidered Lace, small beautiful board gears, a gorgeous Pendant blue dragonfly, and the back cover also was adorned with a beautiful printed Beautiful Board fairie, as well as a carefully placed piece of Beautiful Board heart lattice.


 The inside of this book is equally adorned using beautiful pieces to complement the cover. On this page: Scrolls top off the embroidered Ivory lace, layered with the Beautiful Board Victorian Snowflake clock, a delicate butterfly, and a small gear topped with a moonstone. The delicate little roses and leaf all work together for a shabby look that helps tell the story in this album.


 Here you see that every snippet of lace can be used. Especially if topped off by the Cotton Candy flat-back pearls...


 This delicate page has a border of lace topped with an altered clip that has a center of Champagne Microbeads as well as Glitter Glass panels, and a small Moonstone bead tops off the itty bitty gear.

  The Chunky Glitter glass helped me top off this dragonfly clip, and on the opposing page, a small yellow butterfly tops off a pocket adorned with a border piece of Vintage Lace.

 This small Heart clip also shines with Glitter Glass as it tops off a shabby belly band of layered tattered papers. This compliments the opposing page nicely, as it adds sparkle against the softness of the vellum shaker flip tag.

  Lastly, another little star topped with glitter. This completes this post, and I hope that you have enjoyed the examples of how you can incorporate these products into your book making. As always, thank you for your time, and I hope that you can Be inspired, Be Blessed!

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.

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!



March 2011 Crop Challenge

Hi everyone! This weekend I was peeking at challenges and Kathryn from Life on the Scrap Beach had some fun ones. I decided to participate in the first one which required the use of white space. It was fun to play around with the idea and I was able to complete a 2-page layout! Alleluia!! I was so excited to actually finish it! The tricky part was that I had mentally committed to using the stickers ( since I'm trying to use what I have this year) and at first I was all "Whaaat? how am I going to incorporate these & not mess it up?!!" but then, with a little help from my friend's son Stephen, voila! It came together. Thank you Stephen!! <---he told me to put the pumpkins INSIDE the cart!. Anywho- if you even read this, thank you & thanks to Kathryn for the challenge!
