I absolutely LOVE this NEW CottageCutz Bella Spring Tree from the new "Elites" Collection.There are sooo many Beautiful NEW CottageCutz dies, cant wait for you to see them all!! To see the NEW Releases please visit CottageCutz here!

Sweet Glitzy Carriage

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday to all!!

Today I wanted to share the SWEET CottageCutz Horse & Carriage Die, along with the NEW Bella Spring Corner, both of them have LOTS of Creative Inspiration Paints "Resplendence Angel Dust" on them. 

I Love the look of all the shimmer and glitz this gives. Of course I got glitter everywhere in my craft room, even on the CAT! Oh boy, poor baby!!LOL You think after all these years he would learn not to sit underneath me.....LOL oh well...

All the ribbons and trims are from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I used the Silky Crush, Pink Leaves, White Sheer Box Pleated Trim. I use the Box Pleated Trim to make flowers. I LOVE making handmade ribbon flowers, I think they give that added touch to your cards, and mini albums.

In the bottom photo its really hard to see any of it. I think due to the angle of the photo. Anyways I had a lot of fun designing this card, and thank you for looking!!!!

RRR Happy Mothers Day Card/Video

Hello Friends!!!

Today's card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Beautiful Ribbons and Pom Pom Mini trim that Bonnie carries at the shop. In the picture above you can see the beautiful shimmer somewhat of the Creative Inspiration paints Angel Dust Resplendence Glitter that I used on the leaves. I love the look and in person its sooo pretty!!!

For my card I used Really Reasonable Ribbon Red Mini Pom Pom Trim to create the centers of the flowers. The flowers are CottageCutz Tropical Trio Flowers Die (4 x6). I cut them out in a dark blue, and then lightly distressed them with Tim Holtz ink. I will post my video below showing how I made these sweet lil' flowers :)


The Happy Mother's Day stamp is a SU! one that I used. I stamped it with Memento black ink on the CottageCutz oval frame. My design paper is one that I got in a warehouse sale from Pink Paislee and figured I should probably use it now :) Hubby bought this package for me last year.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!

Spring Craft Pennie Pockets

Designed for May Arts Challenge!

Hello everyone,
Today I'm sharing the 2 Pennie Pockets I had designed for May Arts Challenge!

We were to send in an Idea, and I sent in Pennie Pockets, then  May Arts would decide if we could participate in the Challenge(20 were picked), and you would get to work with their Beautiful Ribbons,and Trims. I really had fun making these!!!

Our Inspiration was a photo, and you can find that here!!

The flowers are all handmade by me, and on the Pennie Pocket that is standing, the leaves were distressed to be a little darker. Also used the string to make the center for my half rosette. The string was also used to make a flower behind the rose.

On the other Pennie Pocket I made a ruched flower with the ribbon, and added a dew drop to the center.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!

So for my card I used the Beautiful Checkerboard Satin Ribbon that Bonnie Carries. This one came from the November Ribbon assortment kit. However Bonnie does sell it separate. You can find all of these beautiful Satins here!!

I used the ribbon to run across the top, and placed 2 bows in the center. For my bows, I made 1 small ,and the other larger.

I also used the beautiful sweet buttons that are from Really Reasonable Ribbon too! these came from the Rose Garden pack and the Spring Button Tote!

The stamps I used are Heartfelt Creations, and this is 1 of my favorite sets from them. I absolutely LOVE the tea cup, its Beautiful!!!
