Here's my latest project!

Soar High Mini Album

Hi friends,
 Today I am sharing this adorable Mini Album I crated for a special someone using Tonic Studios dies that recently released, and some papers from My Mind's Eye that were absolutely fabulous! It was difficult to part with this little book when it was all done, but I am very pleased that my friend will be able to enjoy it, ant that makes it all worth while.

On the cover you can immediately see that this is a Gatefold Mini Album style. The pages open to both the left and right sides. I altered a wooden Hot Air Balloon using papers from the collection, as well as pom pom and silver trim, gesso, chunky glass glitter and sequins.


 The floating teddy is also covered in chunky glass glitter. and a small pearl tops one of the kites that floats on the opposing cover page. I also used the blue pom pom trim to outline the sides and back of this book, and even added tiny gold hearts to the lattice edges of the cover.  On the sides of the book, I added another lattice in gold to ma…

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 Butto…

Shabby Chic Envelope with Attributes of Love for ReneaBouquets

Hello friends! Welcome to my blog. I am sharing a very special project with you today, as I am thrilled to be invited as a Guest Designer for ReneaBouquets this month! To make use of her absolutely gorgeous projects, I decided to make a piece inspired by 1 Corinthians 13. In this chapter of the Bible, we can read about the Attributes of Love. I was inspired to use this as the message of my home decor piece.  This is a metal and wood envelope, and as you can see, I was able to alter it and make it a gorgeous piece that would be suitable for home decor, or to celebrate any special occasion!
I began by painting the base of the envelope with gesso, and adding designer paper to the inside. I then used gel medium, and Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass to give it a shabby distressed, but classy look. Of course I had to make use of some of Renea's absolutely gorgeous Vintage Blue Mulberry flowers.  I love Gardenias and Roses, so these had to make it on the front. I surrounded a Beautiful Boar…

Christmas Crafts Snowman and Chunky Mini Album

Hi friends! I am sooo excited to share some of my most recent projects. This one was my favorite of 2019, but it is just now that I am placing this little gem into the pages of my blog. To begin, this was made to share in a collaboration with some amazing crafters in a youtube hop celebrating all things Christmas. (Details in video) I was smitten with this little snowman when I first saw him on Silhouette Studio, so I gave it a go, and was so very pleased with the results. If you watch the video, you will see he has a little surprise to share! To match, I made a super sweet mini album, as well as a card, which I share in the video as well.

Just look at that face!!
He is so sweet, and I took advantage of every but of space on his Top Hat to decorate with all the little bits and baubles that would make him look festive. Did I mention all of the flowers are HAND MADE? Yes, they are!!
  I added hand-colored poinsettias, which I made with dies from John Next Door, and Dress My Craft, as u…
