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 special times in her life.
 
I began decorating pages with flowers backed in vellum, centered with sequins, and overlapping stitched border frames.
                                     
I also added golden borders to some of the frames, Nuvo Drops for shine, and used the Keepsake Book Maker Tabs and paperclip dies to give this little book the appearance of small items attached to the lovely pages. 

The recipient will also be able to open a tab to reveal another spot for pictures on the page above!
The paperclip...it's made with golden paper!  

For this page I even created a dangle using gold thread, tulle, a dainty rose bead, as well as others, 
Here you see a very delicate page I created using Vellum. All the little dots were placed by yours truly on the vellum using Nuvo Drops. These little details are what I love to add to my pages!


I could not resist adding a little bird and birdcage to this page! I colored the little bird using Nuvo Alcohol pens, and added sparkly tulle behind him, to resemble the texture of a nest.
I then stamped a label image using  a Lia Griffith design stamp from Fiskars. This will easily serve as a journaling spot. On the opposite page, I made a doily stitched with gold ribbon, and it also hides a top-loading pocket for even more room to write!
The page is also decorated with matching antique lace. 

 The last page was not left behind, as I added a frame topped with a flower and golden clip, then also made a tuck spot by making the lattice die cut out of vellum and pretty flowered paper. On the last page, the little polaroid style frame states: adore...
I simply loved adding all the little details to this book, and hope you have enjoyed looking through it.
As always, I hope you can 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.
