RRR Shabby Chic Lollipop card & video

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all! Today's fun project is a shabby chic Lollipop card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon and for our Doll club meeting that I hosted in April where I taught a class on making these. I had prepped all the layers and bows and had everything ready for everyone to make, it was Super fun! I used the beautiful ribbons, flowers and embellishment from RRR.

To start with I cut out several different die cuts in different design papers and what ahead and use foam tabs to layer each one on top of each other. Next I used an Image that I had printed out and then cut out with an oval die, then used an old trim around that using hot glue. I did add a straw and used Really Reasonable Ribbons Grosgrain Swiss dots ribbon in light pink around the straw, and love how it looks. Next I used Delicate stitched ribbon in a shade of blue, and then a old vintage blue ribbon as well ,I made bows with those, and then I used some Satin Pink Ribbon 1/4" for my bows in pink. I used one on the bottom and one up on the top by the flowers.

Flowers used are:
open roses  2tone pink with dusty pink centers, and then 2 tone ivory an pale pink 20mm

For all the layered die cut pieces I did use really reasonable ribbon foam tabs. And then the small flower on the bottom bow is really reasonable ribbons flower. I love making these lollipop cards and do have a video on making one that I made awhile back. I will link video here.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my blog post today. Also if you'd like to see my YouTube video on creating a lollipop card you can find my video here on YouTube

Shabby Chic Poppers for Mother's Day

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have some darling shabby chic Mother's Day poppers I made to add to my table setting for Mother's Day. These were designed for The Robins Nest Creative using the beautiful dew drops they carry.

To Start

To start I made this box small so it could hold some goodies for my table setting I'm doing for Mother's Day. I picked some pretty Design paper that I bought years ago its K &Company. Next I picked my die cuts, and it was a flourish that I have and some ready to go, and then picked my flowers they are from RRR and are absolutely beautiful.

Decorating My Shabby Chic Box using dew drops

I started with adding My design paper to my Box before putting together, that made it easy. Then once together I added my flourish and Hot glued my flowers on, that helped hold the flourish in place. For the dew drops I used the light pink dew drops in the tear drop shape, and then green dew drops in different sizes. Then I added lots of Really Reasonable Ribbon to close the sides and made bows.  I love how the dew drops add that extra embellishing that my poppers here needed.

I  added a tag to the side that says A Little Something , and distress it so it will coordinate with this box, as these will be part of the gifts on my table. I cant wait to do my Mother's Day Table setting, will be fun!. I do hope you enjoyed my post today and please let me know what you think in the comments below.

I do hope you enjoyed my post for today and I also have a video on making these a well. You can see the video here ---> HERE ON YOUTUBE
Hugs to all,

I did cut the borders and add them to the envelope style pocket, and then ran the satin ribbon along both of them. the Ribbon is Satin Crosshatch Nile blue 3/8". Next I used the Delicate Stitch Aqua 5/8" for the tag, and the other is an oldie that is from RRR in a red. the design paper is from Echo park and is HomeMade with Love by Carta Bella. Love this design paper kit. the little bunny is from KaDoodle Bug Designs and is Cherry Cupcake Bunny, isn't she darling? And the sweet mixer is from KaDoodle bug designs and is from the set called Baked with love. Lastly I used RRR flower embellishment and it can be found here.

Wood Welcome sign

 Hello everyone today I wanted to share a fun wood sign I made for KaDoodle Bug Designs using the darling Gnome SVG file. I Love how this one turned out, I ended up giving this to my daughter and she absolutely loved it. 

I painted the wood sign using black craft paint, and then cut the welcome to our home out and in white vinyl ,and the gnome hat and body was done with holographic vinyl. I was able to find in my stash the skin color tone for him and used it for the nose and his feet. 

 I used Ribbon from really reasonable ribbon, and is called Plaid Ribbon Black Bold check. The greenery I just cut off a vine I had ,and used it adding it with hot glue.

I hope you enjoyed my short post today, as I wanted to share this with you all.

Happy crafting,

Homemade with Love Album page 1

Hello everyone, today I wanted to pop in and say hello and share an album I'm currently working on for KaDoodle Bug Designs. This is one of the pages, it's an interactive Page to hold several photos, and I Love how it turned out. I still have a few more sag paper pieces to add to the other inside pages on this one.

So for this page, I wanted it to be interactive and I built it up to do a tri fold and then have some tags that would pull out. Next I added the Darling Cherry Pie Bunny SVGs that I pieced together from Kadoodle bug designs. aren't they so cute? The rolling Pin, large Pie and spoon are from another file called Baked With Love. 

The Ribbons I used and flowers are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and can be found here

I do hope you enjoyed my post today and thank you so much for stopping by!
