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!

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.

Christmas Crafts Snowman and Chunky Mini Album



Hi friends!
I am sooo excited to share some of my most recent projects. This one was my favorite of 2019, but it is just now that I am placing this little gem into the pages of my blog.
To begin, this was made to share in a collaboration with some amazing crafters in a youtube hop celebrating all things Christmas. (Details in video)
I was smitten with this little snowman when I first saw him on Silhouette Studio, so I gave it a go, and was so very pleased with the results. If you watch the video, you will see he has a little surprise to share!
To match, I made a super sweet mini album, as well as a card, which I share in the video as well.


Just look at that face!!
He is so sweet, and I took advantage of every but of space on his Top Hat to decorate with all the little bits and baubles that would make him look festive. Did I mention all of the flowers are HAND MADE? Yes, they are!!
  I added hand-colored poinsettias, which I made with dies from John Next Door, and Dress My Craft, as using delicate foamiran and paper, and decorated the top hat with glitter, gems, and even a little Tim Holtz Raindeer.

I also altered some Beautiful Board piecesfrom ReneaBouquets using paint and glitter ( of course!),  added vintage seam binding that I colored in the lightest pink and even tied a little bell that I painted to go with the color scheme. 

 Every little detail was hand-painted by yours truly...and now for the MINI ALBUM!!

This little beauty was made with lots of love using a tiny stamp from Stamping Bella, Lazer cut board from LaseroweLove and ReneaBouquets, Spellbinders and Tonic Studios Dies, and papers from Mintay. Can we say YUM??


To make the cover extra shabby and beautiful, I matched the coloring of the stamped image with the papers used in the background using Nuvo pens and Promarkers. I also added Nuvo drops for shine, and fussy cut images from the Sweet Christmas Mintay papers to top off the handmade Poinsettias. The snowflake centers are from ReneaBouquets and the swirls are all made with Spellbinders dies, and I layered everything with tulle, lace, and even a pompom trim on the edge.


 Layers!!! From the very first page, you get layers in this book, starting with an adorable pocket, trimmed with an embossed edge and pompom trim, and a beautiful bouquet topped off with a little Christmas tree decorated with pearls and sequins. The sprigs are also topped with Nuvo Drops.

 I made  this expanding tag page using Mythical Glade dies from Tonic Studios, and the golden tab allows the user to open this interactive element. Small lace flowers top this tag page, and little pink sequins add sparkle to the page.
 
This page contains a top folding element tied closed with mint twine, and backed up with lacy borders. The Snowflake is accompanied by little Gingerbread Babies I made using my Cameo, and all is topped off with shiny gems. There is also pompom trim and and a pink ribbon in the center of the page for additional texture.

The matching page has a shaker containing shiny bits, and tiny gingerbread cookies to match, as well as a handmade Jam Jar made with pink glimmery jam and a handmade felt flower. This page is also interactive, and the small heart-shaped tab allows you to open the flap and add a hidden picture.

For this page I made a spread where you can add a picture on the oval frame, and still enjoy a warm cup of tea! all items were fussy cut, layered, glimmered, embossed, colored with matching inks, and made to sparkle with Nuvo drops and gems.
 Here is another adorable page that opens to reveal a surprise. To see what it is, watch the video!
It is topped by a glittery pink snowflake, and sweet candy canes I cut using Spellbinders dies. To finish the page, I added  Beautiful Board snowflakes and a snowman, all from ReneaBouquets.
 This is yet another interactive page, with additional candy canes topped with mint candies fussy cut from the collection. The little window is topped with more fussy cut images, and a handmade bouquet. I colored different elements using Ranger Oxide ink, and topped the snowflakes with more fussy cut mints. Can you spot the washi tape? It's what I used to top the candy canes!


Here I made a pocket using a border die backed with acetate for support, and topped with different colored Nuvo drops. To this I added some festive trims, and I heat embossed some beautiful board snowflakes. They shine and add texture to the page, where three large tags can be used for journaling.
 My project wouldn't be complete without acknowledging the true reason for celebrating Christmas, so on this page, the little angel helps to announce: "Christ Is Born!"
This is my reason to celebrate Christmas, and my inspiration behind everything I make. The lettering is my own, and the board is from Laserowe LOVE. I also added a circular photo mat backed with swirls, and finished the page with more handmade poinsettias and greenery.


The matching page has yet another peek-a-boo window that doubles as a picture mat, and is decorated with a Christmas tree from the paper collection, and a gingerbread baby from ReneaBouquets. The cooke tray is a die cut piece I made using a Spellbinders die, and the flowers are made of pretty lace topped with pink pearls.

In case you were missing some RED...here I made matching pages using tonic dies that have interactive opening panels, and are topped with more beautiful board pieces that I heat embossed using glittery embossing powders and ink. The poinsettias are also handmade, using Oxide inks, and....paper towels!!! WHAAAT??? 
 Here is the opposing page, full of texture with the addition of more hand-placed bits of glitter throughout the page.

This is the last layout in this mini album, and here I made a pocket stuffed with little envelopes, and small ephemera from the Mintay Paper collection. To finish this page, I used more snowflakes from RenesBouquets, topped with small gems to match the envelopes.


The final page is one of my favorites. with a side pocket topped with an incredible bouquet of handmade poinsettias and gingerbread babies. This book has sooo much of what I enjoy inside of it, and I hope it is a source of inspiration for you!
 For the Spine, I used yummy beads and ribbons that emulated candy canes and sugar candies. The white pom-pom trim reminded me of falling snow. 

Please enjoy the video for more details on this awesome Christmas Project, and feel free to leave me a hello in the comments! 
As always, I hope that you can 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!!

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

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!

Here is a Video of how I made them:




Here's my latest project!

Tonic Studios : A Lifetime of Adventure

Hi crafters,  Today I am bringing you samples made with the Tonic Studios Craft Kit: A Lifetime of Adventure. This is a great little kit, as...
