Winter Wishes DT project for Renebouquets

Hi fellow crafters!

I am introducing to you my Winter Wishes projects made with adorable pieces from Reneabouquets, Tonic Studios dies, a Cricut cutting file, and my own #Pastel Snowflakes Digital paper!©

I have used Beautiful Board pieces, laces, and jingle bells on my projects, as well as the prettiest Beautiful Board snowflakes you could ever imagine! These projects were so much fun to make!

I was really excited to work with these pieces, so I designed my own digital paper to match! (This will soon be available in my Etsy shop!) Below you can see how I also added shine to the Beautiful Board Linda's Love Flakes by using Tonic Nuvo drops and Mermaid Tail colored Glass beads from Renea's shop. I also made a whimsical rosette out of vellum, and added pom poms to resemble snowballs. I finished this cover with small gems to make it shine!


To begin, I used the Printed Beautiful Board Small Snow Ball Fight With Claire grouped with white Doily Lace and Beautiful Board Linda's Love Flakes on an adorable gatefold style mini book with a hidden surprise. To add some Christmas flair, I also tied some shiny gold Jingle Bells to the side of the cover with silver thread. This pairs beautifully with a Christmas ornament, complete with a Small Diane's Snowman. The pieces are just darling, and I also added pieces of Venetian lace to the small star. 

You may have noticed something peeking...well inside this book I used the absolutely gorgeous Tree of Life Beautiful Board piece atop an acetate pocket that is also a magnet-held picture frame. This sits on top of more Doily lace, and is flanked by Printed Beautiful pieces!

You can insert a tag into this pocket for an extra message, or you can place your favorite picture to gift to a loved one. The outer pages can be removed for added notes, or small pictures. A closer look allows you to see the glimmer added with Glass Glitter, as well as the Beautiful Board pieces :Christmas Belle Itty Bitty Chipboard on the left and Tiny Jack's Snowman on the right.

Here again is a closer look at the small Christmas star with the Printed Beaituful Board: Small Diane's Snowman.

The small hearts, painted with glimmer, are also from Renea's store. Isn't it darling?

For a more sophisticated touch, I made a larger star. This time adorned with pieces of the Pearl Accented Wedding Day Lace, and the lovely Printed Beautiful Board Large Victorian Winter Laser Cut Chipboard. This pretty lady is available in the store in your choice of color. 

The back of the star is adorned with a piece of  Reneabouquets Trim-Tattered Pink Pleated Tulle, and I also added another Linda's Love Flake and Vintage Snowflake, both altered with Nuvo drops, paints, and gems. The white rosette also has added Glass Glitter and a Moonstone in the center.

 I love Vintage style pieces, and this one is perfect for a Victorian Christmas!

On my Youtube channel, you will also see an additional card made with more Reneabouquet Products, and you will see how these pieces are made with step-by step tutorials! 
I hope you have enjoyed these projects, and that you can Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Merry and Bright Gift and Lantern DT Project for Reneabouquets

Hi Crafters,
I am here once more with a beautiful Reneabouquet Design Team Project for my Christmas in July gift series. Today, I am showcasing a gorgeous Octagon shaped gift box and darling lantern!
For these projects I used my Silhouette Cameo, Items from my stash, and of course, beautiful board pieces from Reneabouquets!

To begin, I made this gorgeous gift box and topped it off with a  Printed Beautiful Board Small Christmas Holly And Berry Wreath Frame. I then used the Beautiful Words Tiny Merry And Bright Laser Cut Chipboard. This piece fit perfectly, and I painted it in a light gold wash, then added a tiny gem in the center. On the bottom, is a grouping of Christmas Red Mulberry Paper Poinsettias, Roses & Holly Leaves Flower Set. To complete this set, I also added some green roses from my stash. To keep all of the flowers shining, I altered them with gold paint and then finished them off with two Tiny Treasures Holly And Berry Christmas Butterflies.
The box is also painted with gold paint and crackle finish for a vintage look.

Inside the box you will find an adorable Victorian Era inspired Christmas Ornament. I used a 

Beautiful Box Large Square Shaker Box DIY Kit Laser Cut Chipboard. This was easy to fill with different sequins and also some tiny Beautiful board snowflakes that I painted to match. The outer frame was also painted, with the bottom layer in green, then the top painted to resemble wood, then topped with a golden crackle effect.

To top off this shaker frame I added pieces of Wedding Day Lace, a handmade bow, and topped it with a Gold Ribbons & Bows Premium Paper Butterflies. This little beauty is already topped with gold glitter and gem, making perfect for my project! To give it the Christmas touch, I also added three small Jingle Bells in the 8 and 6 mm sizes. They are dainty and perfect!

On the bottom of the frame, I had plenty of room to decorate with a Printed Beautiful Board Small Christmas Carol Laser Cut Chipboard Die Cut, grouped with a tiny altered Christmas tree from my stash sprinkled with Glitter Glass. I also added a small poinsettia and tiny roses, both from Renea's shop. This piece can also be filled with a picture or sentiment for a perfect personalized gift!


To go along with the gift box, I decided to also make a lantern. This red and gold beauty is all spruced up for the holidays!

I topped it with another poinsettia, grouped with small pine cones from my stash, and tied little jingle bells to a delicate red bow. The flower is painted in gold to add a shabby vintage touch.


To make this super special, I added a Printed Beautiful Board Tiny Vintage Christmas Reindeer Laser Cut Chipboard. This little doe is grouped with small roses, and a gilded leaf from Renea's shop. Her bells and green bow are mimicked by the bells and velvet ribbon on the lantern.
The lantern also features different Beautiful Board Medium Shabby Snowflakes. These are absolutely stunning,and come in varied sizes, All I did was to add little gems to the center to make them sparkle. Voila! Project complete!


This was a fun project to make, and I hope you gain inspiration to make your own. As always, I hope that you can Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Vintage Christmas Decor DT Project for Reneabouquets

Hi crafters,
This month I have the pleasure to share with you this Vintage Christmas Home Decor Piece with Beautiful Board pieces from Reneabouquets, items from my stash, and a repurposed board.
I began this decor piece with a board that I covered with Christmas themed scrapbooking paper from my stash. It all came together with the coordinating beautiful board pieces, which I was able to color with different inks from my stash. The Medium Decorative Scrolls are guilded in gold Nuvo flakes, and topped with Small Holly and Berry Corners.
The top of the piece also has a swag of Christmas Red Mulberry Paper Poinsettias, Roses & Holly Leaves. These I altered with bronze Nuvo drops and gold spray. I also tucked small pearls guilded in gold between the flowers.

The Beautiful Words Small Merry Christmas Laser Cut Chipboard is also guilded in gold, backed with the Venise Lace die cut pieces that I distressed with Ranger inks, and topped with one of the Beautiful Bits Snowflakes. I also added Cranberry Translucent Glass Microbeads. Sprinkled throughout are Beautiful Bit snowflakes and painted to match the color scheme and topped with little red pearls and gold gems.


To make this warm scene, I also painted a fireplace and topped it with one of the Beautiful Box Small Square Shaker Boxes. This is also adorned with a Beautiful Board Small Holly Flourish Laser Cut Chipboard and pieces of Printed Beautiful Board Small Holly And Berry Corners With Tuck Ins. These shakers are so versatile, because you can color them to suit your needs!

To finish this piece, I also colored a Beautiful Board Small Shabby Christmas Tree, topped with different colored gems and baubles. This is also grouped with a Printed Beautiful Board Small Christmas Holly who also has with her some adorable golden Jingle Bells. To ground this, I also distressed pieces of Beautiful Board Wildflower Elements Laser Cut Chipboard. To bring everything together, I also used bronze and gold glimmer paste for extra shimmer.



I hope you like this home decor piece, and take advantage of this month's coupon code for all your Beautiful Board pieces. This was lots of fun to create, and as always I hope that you can 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Life is Beautiful Mini Album DT Project for Reneabouquets

Hi crafty friends!
I am here to share with you my album titled: "Life is Beautiful".
  I have used lovely items from Reneabouquets, floral papers from Recollections, as well as Tonic Studios and Spellbinders dies to create this lovely keepsake.
On the cover, you can see the adorable Printed Beautiful Board Tiny Flower Girl Daphne. She is coupled with the Beautiful board Victorian Scroll Pattern Laser cut chipboard. I have used several pieces of the Victorian Scroll pattern throughout this book.
You can also appreciate the beautiful colors of the Pink and White roses and gardenia, carefully arranged with cabbage roses and grouped with Garden Part and Venice Rose Laces .
On the spine, I have carefully arranged the Garden Party lace atop others, and grouped it with the Pearl Accented Wedding Day Lace. It is both delicate and beautiful!

My front cover features a Sweetheart Pink Glitter Glass Premium butterfly. I love the tiny heart detail in the center! It tops off a gorgeous gold accent made with a Spellbinders die. The opposite page hold a card that slides out. This is topped with a piece of white Beautiful Butterfly lace.

Here you can also see the delicate white lace on the left. This is the delicate sheer Romance lace. The golden die cut is topped with sequins and pearls for a touch of soft color.


The very next page is my favorite, and it showcases the Beautiful Board Elizabeth in Paris topping a piece of Daisy Chain lace. This is also grouped with the same golden die cut from Spellbinders. Opposing her is the grand Eiffel tower, complete with sequins and delicate pearls for a very Victorian layout. 

This page showcases more pieces from the Victorian Scroll Pattern collection. You will see how I grouped these pieces on the outer and inner pages. The matching tags tucked in the pockets will hold pictures inside, and these are also decorated with pieces from the Garden Party lace, and Spellbinders dies. The small heart shaped gear is from the Beautiful Board Spring Beautiful Bits. I used a moonstone bead in the center for added shine.

These are the interior pages with more pockets made with Tonic studios dies, and matted layers for pictures.
Below is a double pocket page decorated with a gorgeous Beautiful Board Small Victorian Snowflake Clock face, topped with another gear, and it is followed be a sentiment that reads : Moment, also made of Beautiful Board. This is also adorned with a Sweetheart Pink Glitter Glass Butterfly. 


The pockets were created using a Crafters Companion die, and it houses two photo mats, with room for more. 


Below are the tuck spots made with Tonic Studios dies.  I thought the flowers were perfect for this book!

Here is another double pocket page, this time with more Victorian Scrolls and Beautiful Butterflies to adorn the photo mats. I fussy cut the floral paper to make the pockets on the page. 

Below you see more of the Venice lace, this time paired with the Watercolor Cherry Blossom Premium Glitter Glass Butterflies. They are absolutely beautiful among the floral garden in this book!


The sentiment reads: Life is a Beautiful Journey. I believe this to be true!
The last page houses another tuck away side pocket. This time I adorned the card on the edge with a piece of Garden Bouquet lace. This gives the book an adorable junk-journal look when it is closed. The lace is covered in beautiful pearls. 

Last but not least is the back cover. Here I used a stunning Beautiful Board Small Romance and Roses Heart Frame. It serves both as a picture frame and a shaker!
As you can see, I have filled it with shiny sequins and rose microbeads from Reneabouquets, and also tied golden tulle on the edge. The picture will slip in on the side of the page.
I hope you've enjoyed this project share, and that you take advantage of June's Coupon available at Renebouquets with your thirty dollar purchase. You will receive a set of gorgeous dragonflies!
As always, I thank you for your time, and hope that you can 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Queen Bee Handbag and Sketchbook DT Project for Reneabouquets

Hi crafty friends,
For this month I want to share with you another fun project I made using Items from Reneabouquets and Tonic Studios dies.
I wanted to make something ultra lush, as I would be working with the Glass Wing Queen Bees from Reneabouquets. As we all know, there is only one queen in the hive, and for this queen, a beautiful handbag and sketchbook are essential!

Here is the couple with the hexagon shaped handbag covered in a beautiful handmade flower bouquet. Each handmade flower is delicately sprinkled with Gawdie Girl Pink Chunky German Glitter Glass. Grouped along the top of the handbag are also Beautiful Board Hexagon Elements Laser Cut Chipboard pieces that are embossed in gold, and scattered with Moonstone beads. I also added layers of embossed vellum resembling honeycombs, and hand-colored roses made with a Tonic Studios stamp and alcohol markers. Underneath is a piece of Ivory Wide Floral Embroidered Lace.This will surely provide a safe landing for any queen bee!
I

Along the side of the handbag, I wanted to ensure to add a handle, so I crafted one out of gold cord, and attached it to the bag with Tonic Studios die cuts that I layered with gold and black cardstock. Small black sequins top off the faux clasps. The base is also dry embossed in a honeycomb pattern, and topped with cascading hearts created with Nuvo expanding mousse and Finnabair golden nugget effect paste. The entire thing is also sprayed in gold.
Here you can see the queen bee front and center. She tops a piece of Beautiful Board Large Stackable Honey Bee Pattern that has been altered with Finnabair golden nugget effect paste,and sprinkled with pale pink microbeads. It all rests on the hexagon embossed front of the handbag.

Take a closer look at the detail in the Glass Wing Queen Bee. They are so amazing!

Now, lets look at the sketchbook! It fits comfortably inside of the handbag, but it is also made to fit the theme very nicely. On the cover, you see another grouping, only this time I used the Beautiful Board Medium Honey Bee Chipboard. To make it cohesive, I also colored it using my Nuvo alcohol markers and Nuvo Gold marker. The decorative pieces are also sprinkled with Gawdie girl pink glitter and moonstones, and they all rest on a bed of honeycomb chipboard pieces topped with vellum honeycombs, and lovely red roses. The phrase "Inspire",and the Notebook pages are all cut using Tonic Studios dies. 

On this page, I recycled a piece of clear packaging and created a page by embossing it in a honeycomb pattern. Using a lovely stamped phrase shared by a friend, I adorned the page by framing it out with more vellum embossed pieces as well as the hand-colored roses and yet another gorgeous GlassWinged Queen Bee. In the background you can see the pages, They alternate between sketch papers and mixed media papers for a fun sketchbook.

Never forgetting the words that inspire me to create... I incorporated some scripture verses on key pages in this sketchbook. Here, I adorned the page with a piece of Beautiful Board Large Stackable Honey Bee Pattern, only this time I cut it in half to fit my page, added black embossing powder to make it shine, and sprinkled it with small moonstones
On this page I did the same, only here I embossed the honeycomb pattern beautiful board in gold, added moonstones and gems from my stash, and added a beautiful Proverb. 

For the last page, I decided to add a pocket. I dry embossed and stenciled the paper, then added photo corners as a decorative element. To finish, it, I added a piece of applique given to me by a sweet crafter, and altered it using gawdie girl pink glitter, pearls and gems from my stash, and a beautiful 
This concludes my project share, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Please visit the links for your convenience, and don't forget to watch the video for more details. 
Thank you for stopping by, and as always, I hope that you can Be inspired, Be Blessed!
