Lil' Angel Tear Bear LO

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to all! Today Im sharing my Lil' Angel Layout I created using Really Reasonable Ribbon! I'm also SUPER EXCITED to be going to DCWV's Warehouse SALE today in Provo UT!!! this is my 1st time getting to go :) Hope to come home with TONS of goodies :)
Of course I LOVE using PINK and BROWN! So for my Layout I used DCWV Lace & Linen Paper Stack for my dp. Then I decided to use the SWEET Tear Bears I made using Mulberry paper. The ribbon I used is all from Really Reasonable Ribbon,and is all in Brown! I also used the Estelle lace for around the photo matts.

I also used some buttons,swirls and my FAVORITE GLUE "Helmar" Premium Craft Glue & 450 Quick Dry!

I think the teddy bears are sooo CUTE and love making them! I need to set some time aside to make LOTS more of these darlings :) I dressed my one bear in pleated ribbon that was leftover from a long time ago. Then added a trim band for her head and added roses to that :)

Lil' Angel is spelled out with chipboard Alphabet stickers. Of course you know me, I had to GLUE them on with Helmar 450 Quick Dry, I want to be sure my layout stays together for years to come! This layout will also be framed and hung in my home :) Just need to add the photos and some writing. 

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful Thursday!!

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing a Strawberry Container decorated with Really Reasonable Ribbon, to hold a Mini Toilet Paper Album that I will be giving to a dear friend after my USTREAM class this friday night.
I needed something to give this Toilet Paper Mini Album and thought the Strawberry container from the Grocery store would be perfect if decorated. So I used lots of Pink Satin ribbon in different sizes to make the bows and run through the openings in this. I also used some beautiful Estelle Lace that Bonnie carries at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and seam binding!

I used buttons,flowers,wedding stems,feathers, and Helmar Glue to decorate this up. The MEMORIES was cut out with CottageCutz Sugar & Cream alphabet die.

Here is what the container looks like before decorating it.

Supplies Used:
Wild Orchid flowers
Wedding stems
Buttons/Feathers/wedding stems
dp is leftover from the album

I will be doing a USTREAM LIVE class with Helmar Live on Friday night 6:00 pm Mountain time, if you would like to do a Mini Toilet Paper album please join me then!

VO/ 2 Father's Day Cards :)

Hello everyone, today I have 2 Father's Day cards I made for Victorine Originals "Anything Goes" Challenge that is going on right now! 
I needed 2 cards for Father's Day and thought these would be perfect!!
Here is my 1st Card!!

On my first card I used 2 Victorine Originals Stamps, the clock is from the set Mirkwood Designs/(10579-X) Tempus Fugit Set (Unmounted Only) 

The Circle with lines for the writing is also from VO!
I used Really Reasonable Ribbon for the Brown Pleated Satin, and then for the bow, i used the new textured Antique two tone Brown/Antique Gold ribbon I think this ribbon was perfect for a manly card :) The design paper is 7 Gypsies I bought it a long time ago and so are the stickers. The Little Brown stickers are My Little Shoebox.

Both Cards were put together with HELMAR Premium Craft Glue and 450 Quick Dry

Here is my 2nd Card
On my 2nd card I used all the same supplies but added some swirls and a sticker tag from the 7 Gypsies DP pack!

I hope you will join us for our "Anything Goes" Challenge at Victorine Originals Challenge Blog found HERE!!
