Tree of Life Loaded Wedding Frame: Reneabouquets Design Team Project

Hi Crafters,
Today I bring you this loaded Tree of Life Frame Chipboard Kit and Mini Album made with Tonic Studios Keepsake Book Maker Dies. I knew the moment I saw this gorgeous Beautiful Board piece, that I would enjoy working with all of its intricate detail! It was a perfect opportunity to play with my acrylic paints and Nuvo drops also!


I thought of this as a great bridal gift, and to give an example, inserted a picture of my wedding as a sample. To match the picture, I painted the Beautiful board pieces with white acrylic paint, followed by several other acrylic paints in blues, greens, pink, lavender, and yellow. Using a small brush, I added detail to the small ivy, and using dry-brush and splatter techniques, I was able to give the frame a speckled look incorporating all the mentioned colors. 

It was the perfect touch to add Reneabouquet mulberry flowers to adorn this frame in soft pink and seafoam. This allowed the flowers to stand out. A small Tiny Treasure Lissie Glitter Glass dragonfly was the perfect addition. It has a subtle copper sparkle and a small pearl center. Just lovely among the other elements that top the frame. The itty bitty blossoms, skeleton leaves and mulberry roses also got a touch of Nuvo drops for added sparkle. 


Here is a closer look of the hand-painted details and the lovely flowers Renea has to offer in her store. They are delicate and adorable on any project!

The best part about this frame, is that it also has a pocket in the back. Genius!! I decided to make a small mini album to fit the theme. The board is also hand painted, and this time I added a Precious Moments premium paper glitter glass butterfly to accompany the mulberry flowers. 

Here you see a closer look at the Beautiful Board piece that is also the focal point of this mini album. It makes such a big impact! I wanted it to also be soft on the eyes, so I colored it with a Nuvo marker in a soft pink, and also added shine with pink nuvo drops. This also has an added butterfly, gears, small hearts, and lace, all from Reneabouquets. 

As you can see here, there is also a gorgeous piece of Garden Bouquet lace, very fitting for this embellishment. I just love ho soft everything turned out once it was assembled!

Here is another view at the mini album, made with Tonic Studios dies and Blue Fern Studios papers, sold at Reneabouquets. It is gorgeous paper, so you need not add too much to it for it to have impact. I added delicate photo corners from Tonic Studios Designer Series dies and a seam binding bow to close it off.

The delicate gears are backed with vellum, topper with Nuvo drops, and nestled atop a snippet of Ivory wide floral embroidered lace. A Precious Moment Butterfly was the perfect complement to the cover of my book!

 The first page is adorned with a piece of Ivory wide floral embroidered lace and an itty bitty flower. 

As you can see, the inside is quite simple. I only added two signatures to ensure it would fit inside the frame. I also made some pages out of vellum and thin paper. Small tags also give a bit of whimsy to the pages. 

I hope you have enjoyed this proyect. I certainly loved working with all the supplies Renea has to offer, and each month she has a great coupon to go along with your purchase! More details in the store, and below, a list of supplies for you to make your own!

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!

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!

Camera, Card, and Cantilever Box DT Project for Reneabouquets


Hi friends, 
I am super excited to share today's Design Team project for Reneabouquets with you. I have used some of my favorite Tonic Studios dies, a file from Silhouette Design Studio, and other items from my stash to make these adorable gifts. The items will be swapped with a partner in a crafty group. I hope she enjoys using them!


Here is the final group of items, as you can see, I used lots of adorable laces, trims, and beautiful board pieces throughout for a shabby and elegant look. The papers are 'A Romantic Life' from #Bluefernstudios, and available at Renea's shop.

To begin, this adorable little camera was just so much fun to make! I adorned it with the title "Fearless", a gorgeous feather, small daisy and gear.  These are all part of the lovely beautiful board pieces you can select from Renea's shop. To make them fit my theme, I altered these with gems and Tonic Studios Nuvo drops. The lens is also made from Vellum paper that I altered using mixed media. 

You can also see traces of little lace flowers. Those are from Renea's Daisy Chain Lace. I cut small pieces and used them to top off my vellum flowers, made with a Fun Stampers Journey die. All other flowers, butterfly, and the gorgeous Bridesmaid lace with heart motifs are also available from Reneabouquets. 

The Bridesmaid lace really took this project to a new level. Just look at that heart shape! I couldn't resist making the small handle out of delicate pearls. This is a camera fit for a true lady!

Now...are you ready for this?

Yes!!! I made a double stacked cantilever box using the gorgeous Beautiful Board Large Dainty Butterfly Pattern. This is such a versatile piece, and I truly enjoyed adding it to the base of this box. Layered underneath is part of the Daisy chain Lace trim. Peeking from underneath the Double Sided Butterfly is a piece of the Garden Party Tea Rose Lace, This comes with clusters of small flowers and gems included. 

To top off this gorgeous tower of boxes, I added handmade flowers I made with #Tonicstudios dies, and Crafting Foam, layered along with Garden Bouquet Lace pieces, and the stunning Venice Rose Lace. The small Wildflower and Skeleton leaf complete the look together with the double sided butterflies.
Included in this grouping is also a folio, and a Polaroid Style shaker card. To house the small folio, I created a sleeve that I decorated with a Vintage Fairy Bell and a Tiny Candy Cameo Frame.
These are backed by a piece of the Venice Rose Lace and vellum for a soft look.
I also topped of the frame with Cotton Candy Flatback Pearls, and altered the fairy with a small flower from my stash. The closure is a hand dyed piece of seam binding topped with a gem. 

Here is a closer look at the small folio, decorated with a Tea Rose beautiful board piece, a small Fairy-est Of Them All Laser Cut Chipboard. She sits on a bed of flowers cut from the Daisy Chain Lace. I also cut other leaves and flowers to complete the little garden scene.

To finish, this is the Polaroid inspired shaker card. Here I used pieces of the  Garden Bouquet Lace
as well as Beautiful Board Beautiful Bits - Tea Roses. The small Butterfly Kisses Spun Sugar butterfly gives it a special touch. I used Tonic Studios dies to make the shakers, flowers, and the filmstrip that I backed up with altered vellum. I also used Nuvo sequins and others to complete this card. 
This concludes my project share. I hope you have enjoyed it, and as always, that you can 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!

DIY Hat Box Project Share from Decor8yourlife

Hat Box Project Share from Decor8yourlife

Hello fellow paper crafters! This is Sandi Nagel, aka Decor8yourlife.  I'm thrilled to pieces to be here as a Guest Designer for Paints and Glitter!  Today I'm sharing a DIY Hat Box that I made using the SVG files from the Paints and Glitter Etsy Store.


 I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was to cut this hat box file and put it all together!


This hat box is perfect for gift-giving and sending crafty items to a friend.


The hat box measures approximately 5 1/2 x 4 x 2 3/8.  It's wide enough to hold a handmade memorydex card and other crafty goodies!


I don't know which part is the best, seeing it all come together or decorating it! You can add as much or as little embellishments as you want! I hot-glued a couple of trims from my stash, added a couple of trim flowers to the end of the handles, and flat-back pearls on the accent straps.


I also added some large, flat-back pearls to the bottom of my hat box to sit on.


I hope that you've enjoyed my hat box project share and that it inspires you to make several of your very own.  Thank you very much for visiting and let me know (in the comments) what you think of my project.

Hat Box Video Tutorial

The instructions that Raquel gives in her Hat Box Tutorial are easy to follow; and I highly recommend that you watch this video after you have downloaded and cut your SVG files.

Soar High Mini Album

Hi friends,
 Today I am sharing this adorable Mini Album I crated for a special someone using Tonic Studios dies that recently released, and some papers from My Mind's Eye that were absolutely fabulous! It was difficult to part with this little book when it was all done, but I am very pleased that my friend will be able to enjoy it, ant that makes it all worth while.

On the cover you can immediately see that this is a Gatefold Mini Album style. The pages open to both the left and right sides. I altered a wooden Hot Air Balloon using papers from the collection, as well as pom pom and silver trim, gesso, chunky glass glitter and sequins.


 The floating teddy is also covered in chunky glass glitter. and a small pearl tops one of the kites that floats on the opposing cover page. I also used the blue pom pom trim to outline the sides and back of this book, and even added tiny gold hearts to the lattice edges of the cover.  On the sides of the book, I added another lattice in gold to make it shine! The closure is a small tag with a heart center, and a light blue grosgrain ribbon ties it closed. 



For the first page, I made a double frame topped with a bow, small white flowers, and a larger center flower. The outer diecut in coral is topped with pink and cream pearls. This is the darkest color used in this book, but I think it ties in very well with the rest. The little birds on the paper were so beautiful, I had to use this paper!


To the right, this page begins with two Polaroid-like frames that have removable photo mats. They are decorated with a small bow, golden heart-shaped tabs, photo corners, and a piece of white lace. A vellum doily corner that slightly covers a sentiment that reads "happy". You can also see that the hinges of this book are entirely decorated if you look closely to the edges of the picture. 

On the left is this page, with two square-shaped photo mats adorned with a stitched edge, a banner that reads "adore", and the cute little teddy bear holds two balloons with a string. The papers were so beautiful that not much was needed to make this little book beautiful.

Our next center page follows the Kite theme, and I incorporated three frames that can be untied from the page, and have matching photo mats on the back. These will dangle like a kite string when untied to reveal the pictures. The little kite on the side is topped with little golden bows, and I heat embossed the little bird image with pink embossing powder, then colored the layers in light green and yellow.

Here is another dual-frame page. This time they are ovals. and I added a festive banner that I made using small hearts carefully placed on string. There are also pink framed blue hearts in the background, and a little blue butterfly layered with tulle. Each paper was carefully selected to showcase the sentiments in the paper line also.


Here you see the same types of frames, with another delicate kite that has also been heat embossed with pink flowers. I placed clusters of gems on the corners for a little whimsy. 


The next page houses a flip-album that can fit up to six more pictures or journaling tied with a pink trim. I also used adorable swan-themed papers to inlay the flower motifs on the cover of this little booklet, and placed another teddy who holds a banner that reads: You Fly You Soar. The little decorative die-cut to the left can be used to jot a date or names. 


This page allows for a larger stand-alone picture in a circle doily, and it also has the  floating hearts decorating the background, grouped with a couple of doilies that serve as a hidden pocket for tiny matching tags tied with a string. I topped this off with a tiny jar that I altered with paper, golden thread, and its own little heart-shaped tag. I also used an acetate butterfly to finish this page.


In a similar style, this page also has a circle doily frame, only this time it has an adorable little envelope topped with a heart tag, a large butterfly that I hand-decorated with inks, and two little hearts as well as a tulle knot. Three little yellow vellum butterflies float around the frame followed by little gems. 


This page was so much fun to make! I designed a pocket by making a cluster of layered honeycomb shapes from the designs on the paper. They each are decorated with little hearts, a bee and bird, and behind it are matching tags I topped off with tiny matching bows. 



You may know I love adding shakers to my mini albums. Here I used a honey jar shape to make a window shaker. You can actually fit a picture behind this jar, and it will appear to be covered in the little floating sequins. The page is top-loading with a hidden clear window. The flowers are all handmade by yours truly to complete the page. 


Opposing the page is another dual-photo frame with golden photo corners,butterflies, pearl heart, and clover-shaped tags to hold the photo mats inside. I topped the frames with vintage trim to add softness. 


The last page houses yet another little flip-book. This time it ties to the side with a golden brad, and it is also a delicate shaker topped with a little bird and small gems. The flowers are also all handmade with love.


Here is the back of the book, displaying my favorite paper in this collection. I hope you have enjoyed this walk-through and can use it for your own inspiration. Feel free to watch the video below for more inside tips and suggestions on how you can preserve memories in love. 
Thank you for stopping by, and as always, 
Be inspired, Be Blessed!
