Hello Friends!!!

Today I want to share my DT project for Scrapbook Stamp Society. I used the Cute as a Lady Bug digi image by Heather Valentin which can be found HERE.

I think this image is super cute and versatile for all sorts of cards (Birthday, Valentines day, Spring/Summer celebration, etc). She is soooo stinkin' cute!!

I decided to create a wall hanging as I was still thinking of the Hearts & Flowers theme. Here are the pics~

I covered a piece of medium weight chipboard with the Valentine Theme designer paper from K&CO. I added a red foam heart, vintage rose lace, hot pink lace trim, a dark pink organza ribbon, my handmade beaded stick pins, misc. paper flowers (Recollections and Wild Orchid Crafts), stickles, a pink puffy applique heart, and flatback pearls.

I colored the image using copic markers and added some sparkle with stickles as well as glossy accents. I wanted to add lots of fun colors when I created her. Of course I had to add some lovely pink in there. LOL!!!

Here are two close up pics of her:

Thank you for stopping by!!

Hello Friends!!!

Today I want to share a project I created for another fantastic blog challenge over at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog. The theme is "Hearts & Flowers." They are both things I love to work with.

I used Wila B. Mine Lil Gothie Digi image by Heather Valentin. You can find the image HERE. She is super duper cute!!!! When I first saw this image I just knew I had to have her.

Here is a treat box I created:

I used copic markers to color the image. I also decided to try adding some accents to the image with the Sakura gelly roll pens, glossy accents, and of course lots of stickles. I used designer cardstock paper from Recollections which I purchased at Michaels. I am so in love with the way this project turned out as I'm always experimenting with different mediums.

I embellished the treat box with lots of flowers (Recollection, Prima, WOC, and Iamroses). I also added some of the foam hearts which I had in my stash. I believe I bought them at Michaels.

Here are close up pics of Wila B. Mine Lil Gothie~

Hello Friends!!!

Here is a lunch bag upcycle swap I created for Your Paper Pantry. The theme for January is Romance. I used a standard size brown paper bag.

I first decoupaged these pretty rose cupcake liner papers on the entire front of the bag. Added some barn red distressing ink to the bag with a make up sponge. The image I created with photoshop by adding layers to create this collage effect. The bag is embellished with a beautiful vintage white rose lace and a dark pink sequin trim. I added a mini pink rose to the corner of the trim. I stamped the word "Sweet," with a stamp I purchased at Michaels.

The back of the bag I made a pocket with the same vintage white rose lace and added this delicate white lace trim. Inside the pocket is a mat that can be used to add a photo or a journal entry.

Here is a close up of the image I created:

You can also see my video for more details HERE. Thank you for stopping by.

Have a great day!!!

Hello Friends!!!

I am posting my design team project for the Scrapbook Stamp Society Pretty in Pink Challenge. My favorite color is pink so how can I not join this challenge. *SMILE*

I decided to alter a cigar box. I have always wanted to alter one so this was my chance to create one.

I used the Marie Let them eat Cupcake digi stamp by Sherri Baldy.

I covered the cigar box with K&CO Valentine Specialty paper. I colored Marie with copic markers (B00, C1, E00, E13, E57, R20, R29, RV10, RV11, RV13, RV14, RV17, RV63, YG13, Y06). I distress the edges of the box with Apple Barrel's magenta acrylic paint and Daler Rowney's FW Pearlescent liquid acrylic in Platinum Pink. The embellishments are Wild Orchid Crafts paper flowers, misc. mini paper roses, stickles, rhinestones, Maya mist (doesn't say color on bottle *SIGH*) vintage scallop lace trim, and one of my handmade beaded stick pins with butterfly charm.

A close up pic of Marie Let them eat cupcake~

A side view of the front of the box accented with pink cardstock and a piece of vintage lace applique:

Here is the inside of the front cover. I decoupaged some rose cupcake liners for my background, K&CO Valentine's borders, mini paper roses, and one of my handmade stick pins. I added the same acrylic paints to add some distressing to it. I added an image I had in my stash of Marie. It's one of my favorites.

The inside of the box is lined with pink soft felt and edged with a beautiful rose trim. I also lined the box with more vintage lace I had in my stash. I enclosed some yummy goodies in it.

Thank you for stopping by and please vote for me at Scrapbook Stamp Society Pretty in Pink Challenge. I hope you enjoyed my project.
