Cute belly boxes

 My Scrap chick has the cutest files, I love their sweet look.  I did these 2 boxes opposite just for some fun.  I like the idea of the belly box but sometimes the goodies in the box hides the cute critter.  So I made the penguin the focal point adding a cute bow.
I kept the horse simple, not adding anything so the gift will be the focal point.

Sweet Hedgie

I am a huge fan of hedgehogs, they are just so adorable.  
I used the patterns in my SIL program to color this little guy in.  I added black pearls for his eye and nose.

Button tree art

I saw a similar piece on Pinterest and made it my own.
The original is much classier I think but I am happy with my version as well.  
I painted the canvas then cut my tree in vinyl.  after applying the tree I placed my buttons, moving them around until I was happy with the placements. 
I then used my Scotch glue to put them all on.

Pretty lace

I have 2 cards to share with you today showing off the gorgeous dyed lace.
 In this card it's more subtle, I used it as a background to add some texture.

This card It's the focal point.  I used glue dots to adhere the lace to the card then tied a bow and added it to the top.  This way the lace on the card stays flat.

 I used the wider piece as my border strip to peak on the front.
I love the look of this, perfection.

Hearts challenge with Eureka

 For this challenge I used the digi1001 Heart Flowers in Frame image.
I used some heart cut outs I had left over from some other projects since they fit so well.  I inked the edges then glued them in place.  I then used some clear glitter nail polish to paint the colored hearts.
I found the pink plastic hearts in my stash and adhered them using the nail polish then put a thick layer inside each heart for extra shine.
 I added some heart shaped gems and a twine bow.
Inside I inked the edges of the sentiment then added some more heart cut outs.

Lady bugs everywhere!!!!

Well, hello there!  Today I'm sharing an adorable set of projects that I really really love!!

Cheryl is back to creating at Creative Kuts (woo hoo) and she's got us all on the Scrapbook train.  Be sure to some on over to the CK fan page and hop on board.

 This card is so versatile, it can be a shaker or a peeker card if you'd like.  I made it both!
The wings open and close to show the message and beads.
I used red glitter paper for her wings.  I love that paper so much, so many sparkles and it doesn't flake off. 

For the matching lay out I used some of my treasured Close to My Heart papers.  
 Check out those shoes!!! LMBO! They are my favorite part of this file.

Box cards are so popular right now, I again used my CTMH papers, they give the best cuts I've found, nice and clean, minimal tears on fine areas, check out that grass!

 So happy with these and even happier to be creating again.  It's been a long time since I sat all day at my desk and let me tell you, it's the best therapy and it's just what I need!!

Spring is upon us

Winter holidays crafts are my favorite by far, but I do enjoy the transition into the pretty bright colors we all tend to use for Spring.
I decided to make some early spring projects, hoping to brighten up my mood and get me back into full time crafting.
 This cute watering can card will be a great frame to add my daughter's picture to and send out.

This is a fun purse album that I added the sun face to. 
Makes me smile just looking at it.  I can't wait to get some fun pictures this spring to add to this album.

I'm bats about you

Fun right?  This is a really great set, makes me smile, I don't think it has to be a Halloween only set with this phrase.

I found these tiny pens in the dollar bin at Target, they fit perfectly with the post it note size.

Cute and Classy

I've got more Christmas for you...I love crafting for Christmas, it's my favorite by far.
So I thought I'd share a few more of my projects and maybe inspire you to start early this year.

This is an image from The Stamping Chef, isn't she gorgeous?

Fun penguin ornament, the twine is just taped to the inside of the card so it can easily be removed and placed on the tree.

 I love the little jar of sparkle.  I found a bunch of different ones at our Dollar Tree, glitter, slivers and beads, so fun for cards.

These ornaments are designed by Cheryl at Creative Kuts, if you aren't part of the group you are missing out on a lot of files, a lot of them freebies!! 

I'm adding this to the 12 Months of Christmas card link up
