I have to say , that I always LOVE how my layouts turn out using Club scraps Deluxe club kits. Each one is special to me, and cant wait to add the photo's and get them in an album :) On this one here I already added some sweet photo's of our Chow Chow Miesha Bear! We also call her Mieshy...hehehe She is the most loving , caring, & sweetest dog ever. She has the best personality, and its very sweet. Never has she shown a mean side at all. She loves all other dogs, no matter what size they are. She also loves kitties, and gets so cute when she see's them. I have never had a dog listen so well, even when she goes for rides on our golf cart. She see's a cat, and cries, but says right by our side. Love this little Princess Miesha Bear! Hope you enjoy seeing her sweet photo's from when she 4 1/2 to 5 months old in these photos.

 On my page here I chose to use the beautiful design paper from this months Vintage Botany Deluxe Kit. Omygosh I love all the designs and colors in this kit.

On this page I used 1 12" x 12" print for the backing, its backed onto the Purple(BEAUTIFUL) card stock! I also used this same purple for the flowers that are spritz with a gold glitter. Next I chose to use the photo mattes that come in this kit for dear Miesha's photo's, lastly adding sewing to keep them in place.

The other flowers were cut using the 8 1/2" x 11" print card stock, its the one with the botanicals going down the left side. I then airbrushed them using a purple copic marker, and added some sweet flower embellishments to the centers of all the flowers.

Tags are from the cut-a-part sheets, and I used the Glassine Bag for the gold pop up butterfly tag, that also came in this beautiful kit.

Ribbon and fibers are also from Vintage Bontany Deluxe kit and add on.

I had so much fun working with this months beautiful Vintage Botany kit, as I LOVE everything about this sweet kit! I do hope you are enjoying our hop today!

Your next stop is Deb's Blog Have fun!!! Thank you for joining us today!!

Vintage Botany Card

 Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to you all! Today's card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using their Beautiful Satins. This one is the Satin with Grosgrain Edge, and its absolutely Gorgeous! Love how easy the bows come together using this ribbon. To see all Satins please visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store here.

To create this card here, I chose to use the New Vintage Botany collection from Club Scrap. So the design paper is 2 different designs, with stenciling on the 1st layer, then stamping the flower from the Vintage Botany Jumbo Unmounted Stamps and coloring it with copics for the flower image. Paper & stencil are all from the one Vintage Botany Deluxe collection. the 2nd layer is from the 8 1/2 x 11 design paper sheet called Deluxe Lt. Green. This collection is absolutely beautiful!

knew Really Reasonable Ribbon would have the perfect ribbon to go with this kit, so I chose the satin with Grosgrain edge, and its perfect. RRR also has some other beautiful satins and taffeta's that match perfectly. LOVE this!!

Next I colored my image with copic markers R85 & RV11 for the flowers, then for the greenery I chose YG03 & G99 they worked perfectly! For the center of the big flower I used some stickles in the color of fruit punch. I have had my stickles for about 9 1/2 years, and they still work perfectly.

I added sewing with my machine, in a light pink, and then added gel dots in white.

My layers are popped with RRR foam Squares. and the layers were glued together before sewing using a small piece of Scor-Tape, both of these can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon under adhesives

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I en joyed creating this card to share with you all! Please leave a comment letting me know what you think :)

Someone I love.....

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to all! Today I have a card designed for Club Scrap, The Project Bin Stamps ,and for Really Reasonable Ribbon's Anything Goes Challenge. I TPB's beautiful stamp set called "Born Yesterday", and Club Scraps Vintage Botany Deluxe club kit and Really Reasonable Ribbon's Satin! LOVE them all!

On my card I used 1 sheet of design paper in the 8 1/2" x 11" and layered with the green card stock also from the kit. Next I added sewing in a pink that I had a little left on the spool. For my sentiment I chose the Someone I love was born today, as its a birthday card, and worked perfecting with the die cuts I used from Cheery Lynn Designs.

The Really Reasonable ribbon I chose to use came from a jar I have on my work station that holds all current scraps of ribbon. That I way I know its still available to buy. I also used the sweet little covered button embellishment from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well.
I Hope you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful day!

 Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have a fun summery card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs using the beautiful floral & Doily dies. I have to say I LOVE the wide variety of dies that Cheery Lynn carries, and all the different Beautiful Doily's, its a crafters haven....hehehee My card was also designed for The Project bin using their super darling stamps!

For my card today, I started off by using a paper collection called sugar rush by basicgrey, im sure its an old old collection, as I have hardly any sheets left in this 6 x 6 paper pad....hehehehe

Next I took one of the coordinating design papers and cut out my Small Gardenia strip flowers B433. I love the look of these grey polka dot gardenia's. They were super easy to make and all I did was add some pearls to the centers.

Next I cut out some of the Floral Bouquet Kit greenery B777 to use with these beautiful gardenia's, and I LOVE how these turned out using 2 different Club scrap green inks, and a blending foam dabber. LOVE the look of the leaves!!

Doily Layers were done using 3 different Cheery Lynn Doily's
DL282 Alpine Flourish Doily
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily
DL232 Ankara Lace Doily
These were all cut out using white card stock, and layered within the layers of my card. I LOVE adding lots of layers to all my cards, its so fun to create them with layers :)

Sentiment was stamped using The Project Bins Bazinga! stamp set, and 2 different blue ink pens.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is a Taffeta in the color Maize.  and I used the beautiful pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbons Embellishment line.
Lastly I added some fun sewing to all my layers.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

Happy Birthday

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all! Today's card is a super fun birthday card created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Satin Ribbon that came in last months Ocean Breeze Assortment. Love the colors in this club assortment! My card was also created for The Project Bin using the darling sentiment from Jukebox Birthday set.
 I made my big bow using the satin, and love how it turned out. Easy when you use the beautiful and nice ribbons that Bonnie carries over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. I also used the foam tabs that can be found here.

The flowers were done using dies, and coordinating design paper. I did use the Glass flower technique that I do on a lot of my flowers. I love how these look in person. Not like paper :) heheheh for the centers I chose to use some of my beads from my collection. I have Hundreds of these that I ended up with from my moms best friend.

The stamp is from The Project Bin, and it is super cute. I did this stamping with the Mini Misti tool. Love that tool for stamping. I have to say you never get a bad stamped image using this, what a life saver .

The dp is from American Crafts, and I added sewing to complete my card for today.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by!
hugs to all!
