Happy May!
I recently took part in a group Swap with a Facebook group and had the great opportunity to create some Alice In Wonderland themed items. The requirements were to make a Mini Loaded envelope measuring 4' by 6', as well as 5 Embellishments, a Large Tag, and a Wand.
I designed the envelope in no time using Cricut Design Space, and went to work on making sure all the pieces were cohesive.
Behind Alice is a pocket, designed with Cricut Design Space and layered with specialty trims.

I made this large Rose with Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore Air2, Liquitex Gesso, Glitter, and a gem and key. Other flowers were from my stash.

I added charms throughout to tie in the Alice in Wonderland Theme.

The front of the wand has a teapot, topped with a mini sequin heart, and added glitter. I made the rosette with the Cricut, and added gold acrylic paint throughout, with seam binding, lace, and fuzzy pink feather trim.

The back of the wand has a Rabbit with time clock. I used Cricut Print & Cut to make him, added glossy accents, a charm, and backed him with a Cloth heart, layered with Washi Tape, and embellished with Gold paint and heart sequins.

The large tag was embellished with Ranger Liquid pearls, Seam binding, twine, and another Rabbit charm.

The large tag has a caption made with Cricut Print and Cut, a butterfly border, gold trim, and is glittered, as well as embellished with gold paint and liquid pearls. 

The back of the tag was finished. 

The small tags completed the requirements of 5 dies. I made toppers with a diecut, and used the Cricut Explore Air 2 to make teacups with little tea bags. The little hearts were topped with stickles. The trims are gold and peach tones.

I also added these cute little Prima buttons as a gift. I loved the colors!

The other little gifts were stickers, keys, and stamps, and they all got topped off with more images of Alice, the Mad hatter, and different dies. 
These little altered clips helped hold things together.
On the back, instead of a traditional pocket, I added a doily to hold the goodies, and a small envelope and card, made with my Cricut. 

The little envelope and pink  lace.
One of the clips was a small shaker I made with a tiny bow and sentiment.

I also used a lacy background from Design Space to finish the back, then distressed it with Gesso, glitter, and gold paint splatter.
Sadly, one of my favorite components is not pictured here, as I forgot to take pictures of the Altered envelope and Spoon that I also made for my swap partner.
I will post more pictures separately of the rest of the swap contents!!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and thank you for being a subscriber!!

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.
