Can you believe it?!!  It's already February 1st and you know what that means right?  


This month the theme is CELEBRATIONS!   I know we just had this one but I HAD to share another Christmas card.  Isn't that crazy?!!  LOL!!  I used the super cute Studio Light "Winter Feelings" papers and added some OH SO FUN pom pom lace or ribbon, whatever you'd like to call it.  I've layered the image and saying using Joy's "Clock with Swirls" die and distressed all edges.

Such a cute image from Magnolia called Christmas Party Tilda.  I added the sentiment from Magnolia Christmas Party Holiday Wishes Kit and added a few candy canes from the same set.  I also added some Scrapiniec confetti stars, which I also distressed with ink.

HAVE YOU SEE THE LOADS OF LACE AND RIBBON ADDED LATELY?!  Oh WOW!!  Of course I knew I'd be able to use that gorgeous organza ribbon to make a double bow.  I've also added lots of Wild Orchid Craft flowers from the store.

There are some new pins in the shop as well and the one on the right is called sparkly rhinestone pin.  You had me at SPARKLY.  😀  Precious!!!!

This little house is from last year's Doohickey kit but there are plenty more other kits available in the store.  Isn't that deer charm cute too?!!

And there's my CELEBRATION card for this month's challenge inspiration.  I hope you can play along and remember, there are pretty much NO RULES.  Just enter!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mintay Papers

Have you seen the new papers in the store?!!  OH MY GOSH!!  These are stunning!!  And if you haven't seen yet, there is a huge giveaway for this month's "Anything Goes" challenge.  4 different prize packages of Mintay Papers, which I happen to be featuring today!

I TRIED not to cover the papers with my usual embellishments and I don't think I did too bad! 😁😁 I really wanted to showcase those stunning "Birdsong" papers.  I've added 3 rows of new laces, the tiny white pom poms (and there are many different colors!!), the rose ribbon with pearl pink champagne and lace "Florie".  OH MY that stuff is luscious!!!  

I really love the color combo of peaches and turquoise in this set.  It was nice to play with more spring colors.  This is Tilda with Daisy Umbrella who I've colored with Copics.

This piece is STUNNING!! OH MY WORD!!!  I layered this gorgeous rhinestone bow with pearl atop a seam binding bow.  Scrumptious!!

I hope you're having a wonderful week!

Take care for now and get crafty!

Winnie's Scrummy Cupcake #2

I had this paper pad still only slightly used so since I'm in the SPRING spirit (especially after last week of household flu's) I knew it HAD to be played with.  LemonCraft's "Just Love Me" is all on sale right now so be sure to check it out!  On this layout I've used Wycinanka's "Lace Borders No.1", a strand of pearls and a strip of Lace Georgina.

Here is my usual bouquet of Wild Orchid craft flowers, a seam binding bow and a pretty decorative gold rose button.

Another pretty bouquet with some more flowers and meadow spray.

I really enjoyed coloring this cutie up not long ago so had to do it again only this time she's a blonde.  LDRS's "Winnie's Scrummy Cupcake" colored with Copics.  I added some Scrapiniec confetti hearts and dabbed some Stickles over top.  Pretty!!

By pressing the flower in her hair, it turns on a little LED light under her green bow on the cupcake.

There we go for this week!!  Soon I will have more exciting products to play with so more eye candy to come!  LOL!  Stay tuned!

Reverse Canvas

I've been playing with my new Silhouette that I got for my birthday in November.  Now I want to stick vinyl on EVERYTHING!!!  LOL!!

Still debating on if these are going in MY laundry room or not.  

Did you know there were frames underneath canvas?  I DID NOT!!  Talk about cheap frames!

Tilda with Flower in Her Pocket

Good day!!  This week I'm sharing a card using those gorgeous Maja papers "Denim and Friends".  I'm hoarding them.  LOL!!  But I think I can use more now that a new collection is coming soon.  hee hee  On the right I've used a pretty Fantasy die "Mini Curls" - I love me some flourishes!!  At the bottom is a die from Joy called "Scalloped Edge die with Flowers".

I've used one of my favorite Joy dies - Crafty Cocktail Typewriter Stamp and Die, which I'm sorry to say is out of stock but if you are interested email Tracy about it.  I added a few bark hearts and some Wild Orchid open roses.  

Here I've used some new embellies from the shop - Joycraft's lacey heart and natural spirals.  I've also added some more pretty Wild Orchid flowers.

This cutie is Tilda with Flower in her Pocket and she's still available along with quite a few more!!  Some are even on sale!!

I've added some lights underneath for fun!!  Heck why not?!!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your week and weekend!

Winnie's Scrummy Cupcake

Since I've been making so many Christmas cards it felt so good to do something springy!  Not saying that I'm done with the winter ones yet....hee hee.  I've used some scrumptious papers from LDRS, that are unfortunately not in stock, however stay tuned as I'm sure there are more coming!!!!  OH but the "Winter Land" block is still available and I tell you, these papers are really great to work with!!   If there is one there that you might like to have just email Tracy.  😀

On this side of the card I've used Fantasy's border and some pearl lace that no matter how often I use, I just can't seem to get enough of!!  These canvas butterflies from Joycraft are really cool.  I decided to distress the edges of the them and they took the ink up just perfectly!  They're rather stiff so I could shape them a bit (not that you can see so well in the pic) so they keep their shape but also they don't flop around either.  Isn't that little bee KA-UTE?!!  You must see the new black and yellow ones in stock!! 

I luuuuurve this new Joy die - "Clock with Swirls" and there are actually two stunning dies that come in the pack.  I've use the clock here but there's another flourish piece that surrounds the clock.  Oooooooo I'll be using it often I think!  LOL!!  In my bouquet I've added some leaves using Joy's "Vintage Borders Heart" leaf die, Joycraft's new natural spirals, a couple of glass strawberries and more.

This little cutie is also from LDRS "Winnie's Scrummy Cupcake" and I've colored her with Copics.

And here I snuck an LED light under her flower.  SO CUTE!!

Ok there is my springy card for this week!!  Are you back to what your normal is yet?  I took my decorations down a few days after Christmas.  I usually wait a bit longer but I had the time so thought I better get it done before it was Easter.  LOL!

Enjoy the rest of you week!

Vintage Romance


Welcome back to a new and first challenge of the year at Noor! Design UK:

Again?!!  YES AGAIN!!  YAY!!!!  You should see the prizes for this month!!  WOW!!  Tracy is introducing some new papers called Mintay and giving 4 packages of papers away.  Phew!!  They sure look nice!!  I can't wait to get my hands on mine!!
Now on to my card!!  So today I'm using Maja's "Vintage Romance" which is such a gorgeous set and I can't wait to see what's coming next!!  I've use Joy's new "'Clock with Swirl" dies and that's actually both dies you see on my card.  I figured with this being New Years, I should have a clock somewhere on my card.  LOL!  

The main image and dove image are from Maja's picture page so I thought I would incorporate that with some flowers and a Joycraft "Lacey Cotton Heart" and a few more flowers from Noor! Design.  Oh and I added the Joycraft "Lacey Butterfly" too.  

It's been awhile since I made some flowers so it was time.  LOL!!  The big ones are Whimsy's "Peony" die using white Foamiran and I've added a foam spiral in the mix too.  For the stamens, I used some vintage matte white and inked them with TH "faded jeans" ink to match the centers.  

Here's a close up of the big one:

I want to take this time to thank you for coming by when you get a chance.  I know blogs are a thing of the past but I still like using them for my own reference and it's usually to find out what combo I want when coloring an image.  LOL!  I wish you the best in 2018 and hope to see you back here!  

Thanks so much for your comments and support!
