Little Blue Button Stamps New Release & News

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I have some news to share.  First things first I have extended my Blog Candy deadline to the end of February. Be sure to follow this blog and share the news via your own blog or other social media such as facebook, instagram, etc.  Here is a sneak peak of the goodies up for grabs...there is some Prima, Websters Pages, Pink Paislee, My Mind's Eye, ribbon, buttons and much more.

Be sure to come back to see another sneak peak of more goodies because there is more in store. :)

I am super excited to announce that I am now a part of the team for Little Blue Button Stamps.  If you love digi stamps you are going to just love their images.  I am so excited to share my first DT card with you today.
For my card I designed a trellis and used my cutting machine to cut it out.  I then cut strips of paper and weaved it into the trellis.  I popped it with handmade pop ups. (Be sure to come back for a tutorial on how to make your own pop ups).  I used Prima flowers and moss from the local Dollar Store.  I also created my own butterflies which again I will have another tutorial coming soon.  The image is from the new release "Girl With Kitty".  It is colored with Promarkers.  The papers are from Authentique 6x6 papers - Legacy Collection.  The cardstock is from Michaels Brand.

TFL! Be sure to head on over to the Little Blue Button Stamp Blog and while your there check out the store and also leave some love for the team because they did some awesome projects.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you soon!

Welcome to my New Blog

Happy Saturday Everyone!
As you all may have noticed some of your followers have disappeared. This is because there have been changes. As of Monday January 11 all people who do not have blogger with google accounts will be deleted.

Unfortunately was created with another account which in fact no longer exists and since I was ready to update the look of my blog I decided to switch it over. Unfortunately I can't keep the same blogger account.

If you made it here I am so happy to see you back.  Please help spread the word to all bloggers.  I only found out a few days ago and I have a tedious task ahead in order not lose the people I follow.

To help this transition and celebrate the new launch I will have a blog candy giveaway. You will have until January 31st to follow my new blog, share this giveaway on your blog and Feb.1st I will pick a random winner. Good luck everyone.  I will post the blog candy shortly.

Starting the New Year with a Bang!

First I would like to wish everyone a wonderful New Year! May 2016 bring creativity, prosperity, health and lots of love.

I took a much needed vacation in between the holidays and instead of resting I found myself creating pages, cards and bringing a twist to 365 Project.  Below is some of what I have been up to.

This is a page I did for my mother-in-law who wanted a page done with her beloved sister who passed away a few years ago.  This was hard for me to do because I wanted it to be perfect.  It was the one and only picture and I battled long and hard. When I brought it to her the moment I saw the tears in her eyes I knew she was pleased with the results. I am now looking for a shadow box so none of the embellishments get crushed.

My favorite wire butterfly is no longer being sold at my local dollar store.  I was so sad because I use it on almost everything.  So I played around and finally came up with something I can be happy with.  Here is the original.

Here is my version.  I shaped wire for the antenna and created the butterfly shape so it could cut on my cricut machine.

Now here are some cards having fun with my new butterflies.

And finally I hand made Calla Lily flowers.  Once again I created the shapes and saved as a svg file so it could cut on my cricut machine.  I used a doily to wrap them in.

Be sure to come back soon so I can share with you my 365 Project with a twist.  TFL! and once again Happy New Year!
