Gorguss Girl Mini Album

Hello and Welcome!
I hope you are stopping by to see this beautiful album I am sharing with you, and that you enter for an opportunity to win this beauty!
I have made this little book in hopes that it is well-received and loved by one of my awesome subscribers. 

I made the cover of  this small album with a Gorguss Girl in a pretty heart-dress and a friendly bunny. The front features pretty butterfly embellishments and a shaker. You can make the theme universal, and that is the reason I have omitted a title for this little book. I made it thinking of all the friends I have gained since sharing projects and tutorials on YouTube.

The 1st page features a lovely waterfall. It opens to allow room for small pictures, or it can be left as is. The sentiment reads: Dream out Loud

The small handle allows you to work the waterfall mechanism.
I made sure to embellish that as well.

The second page features the first of several Gorguss Girl frame stamps, colored with matching colors and glimmer. She is adorned with blue burreflies and pearls, also matching the designer paper and pretty bow. This opens to reveal room for pictures or journaling.

This is also a page with a ribbon closure. The title says " Memories", and I used seam-binding for a delicate touch. The page opens for more interaction.

Here I made a pocket page using my favorite bow die and vellum layered beneath to make it sturdy. I included ephemera that matches the collection, and lets you add small pictures. 

Here is a framed Gorguss girl, and the sentiment reads "So Thankful For You"
She is adorned with a small pink bow, traditional of Gorguss Girls.
The page includes small tags, and some embossing.

On this page I made a side-pocket. This houses a small card that can be used to gift the album, or to include more pictures. The sentiment reads:
Us. Friends. Always.
The shiny butterfly holographic sticker lends whimsy to the page.

This page reads:
Adventure is Out There
The lovely Gorguss Girl has a Seam Binding pull to open the page, and a magnetic closure keeps it closed. I adorned her with red pearls and a blue butterfly. 

This sweet page also has a half-pocket, added tags, and a chip-board embellishment with some added sparkly flowers. 

Here I have also created a small booklet that slides in the page. The pocket has a lovely scalloped edge, and the small tag has a pretty pink ribbon.

This page features a Gorguss Girl Frame and sentiment reading:
Genuine.
I fussy Cut the page to keep the cityscape background  and added butterflies to match. The tags all fit nicely and fit perfectly in the page.

This is a secondary magnetic page, where I used ink and dry embossing as well as some mixed-media techniques. I love the end result, and the little Framed image is finished with blue pearls and butterfly.

This is the last page, featuring a belly band, and a small booklet I made with matching ephemera. I added golden beads, and a pink flower embellishment. and he framed Gorguss Girl has a glimmered bow in her hair. 
All of the stamped images were hand-colored for this book.

I finished it off with my signature shaker, made with tulle, and the sentiment inside reads:
"Fall in Love with as Many Things as Possible"
I have fallen in love with making beautiful gifts, and I hope this one can be yours!

Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.



In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
***Key points are to always EDIT in groups, allowing yourself to work in sections. Once your text looks as you like:  Select the entire text box, flatten it, then attach it to your shape. It will automatically cut your shape and keep your text as a print option.***

The 3rd video will explain assembly, as well as the "Bleed" option to printing your shapes. I hope you enjoy learning how to use all of these awesome elements in Cricut Design Space3. Please leave me feedback, or a link to where I can see what you have created!

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.
