Memory Dex Card and Gorguss Shaker

Hi friends, 
I am sharing some of the latest embellishments I decided to make in a rosette style, as well as an adorable Shaker topped Card  and Memory Dex card I made to go share with a fellow blogger and youtuber.
These little embellishments were easy and fun to make!
I began by uploading a designed I liked to my Cricut Explore Air 2, This allowed me to cut several ballerina shoes. I decided to make them in Gold mirror Cardstock and Vellum. This is always my preferred way to make delicate embellishments.

I also added leaves from a different die set, and topped the rosette with the die cuts, tulle, and several sequins. To make the shoes "pop" I embellished them with pink seed beads, sequins, and enamel.
It all got finished with little flowers and bows.

To make this set, I also used a Gorguss stamp, and a Tim Holtz die in the shape of an antique Clock. To make it a shaker, I filled it with sequins, and layered it with acetate, creating the perfect window effect. To cut the background, I cut the same shape using my Cricut and a scanned image of the same clock.

Here is how I packaged this lovely card set. It's a great way to share a little about yourself and your personal style.

I made a frilly embellishment by fussy cutting the sentiment image. I also added three little pearls for sparkle.

I love adding dimension to my cards, This one has it all! Leaves, washi, crochet lace, tulle, and even a hand-painted leaf I made using plaster.

Here is a close-up of the shaker with the perfect twinkle!

I hope that you have liked this post.

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…

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.
