Little Jam Jars and Tag Embellishments with Video Tutorial!

Hi friends, I recently shared a tutorial on my Youtube channel on how I made some adorable tags and jar embellishments. These were tons of fun to make, and work perfectly as either happy mail or gift toppers for many occasions!

First, I received some adorable stamps as a swap gift, and you can see one pictured here to the right. I had also recently purchased some stamps from BoBunny I wanted to play with, and decided to combine both. I added the little girl image to a tag, colored her with Spectrum Noir and Nuvo Markers, and  stamped the sentiment and Hot Air Balloon using Ranger Distress Oxide Inks
To distress the papers I also used Ranger Distress Crayons, and finished them off with Ivory Seashell Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Here you can see several items I was inspired to create and share also in my video...


Above is a close-up of the Jar embellishments I created with Crafter's Companion Jam Jar dies, and Sizzix Funky Floral #1 die set. The little flowers were the perfect addition to my acryilic shimmery jars. I cut them out of felt, and hand-stitched them adding small pearls to their centers. They are delicate and pretty!

I also added twine, little acrylic hearts, and stamped mages to make each jar unique. To "fill" them with jam, I used BoBunny glitter paste in Tutu, as well as Martha Stewart fine glitter, and an embossing folder left little bows in the blue jar, topped with a vellum and mulberry flower. 
I love adding unique touches to my embellishments. Not only do they add a hint of glimmer, but they also add gorgeous texture to all my handmade projects. 
I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and that you can

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.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!



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…
