Gorguss Girl Challenge Embellishments

Hi and thank you for stopping by!
I am sharing some goodies made for a challenge on YouTube. 
The challenge was Gorguss Girl themed, and I could not resist participating, as I love all-things Gorguss Girl related.

All packaging was handmade by yours truly.

We were asked to submit embellishments in sets of 4 as an option to enter. They were to be 2 inches in size, or approximate.
 I chose to keep it simple and here are my results: 
Love Squared Dies from Bo Bunny
My first little batch were these adorable Scalloped square embellishments made with a Hipster Giraffe (Cricut Design Space) all glimmered and glossed, and a layered flower die from my stash. To make them stand out a bit, I used Ranger Oxide inks to give them a soft hint of color, and then added the Love sentiment, as well as the pearls.

GOR503011 Dies and Stamps, CBD004 Perfectly Layered Dotted Daisies

My second set was a small whimsical banner, made with four layered Dotted Daisies. The centers are all Gorguss Girl related, and glossy. The flowers lay atop a banner made with Detailed mint-colored lace and turquoise ribbon, and topped off with small pearls. All of the petals were also distressed with Ranger Oxide Inks. The toppers of all bags were made with matching papers and flowers.


Butterflies and flowers and shiny little things!

Pictured above are the remaining embellishment sets. For one, I made scalloped flowers topped with pretty pearls, with beautiful broad silver leaves and a blue doily to match the color palette.
 For the fourth set, I made square shaped embellishments full of shine. I began by embossing some stamped images, the smaller one reads: Inspire, Enjoy Life (Inkadinkado Stamps), and they also have matching gems and beautiful little silver butterflies.


I made a double-sided pocket envelope using Tonic Dies to house all of the little gifts. The backgrounds to house the items were all made with the Gorguss Girls Postcard Die Set. This way they may be reused to send a little message to a friend! 


To embellish the front, I used a Gorguss Girl Stamp from the Frames Collection. Then I added more flowers in layered pinks, and an antique wedding lace to finish this Gorguss Project!


This is how the package was sent to Jeannie, from Happily Ella After. I truly had fun making these, and hope that you can 
Be inspired, Be blessed!

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.
