Little Darlings Baby Carriage

Hi Friends...last Friday I did a sneak peek of my DT project with Scor-pal. You can see the full tutorial on their blog HERE. I wanted to share with you some additional photos of the project. I do have a quick video I did last night...I'll have this uploaded to the blog later tonight so be sure to check back for that. It will also be on my YouTube Channel.

I created a mini baby carriage with a tag mini that fits inside using the G45 Little Darlings collection....

The Little Darlings Collection is perfect for a project like this.

Such a fun and cute project to make. Imagine giving this to a new mom to display in the baby nursery. My sister-in-law just had twin baby girls so I may end up making another one of these so I can give her two of them...how cute!!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out another scrappy post. Be sure to come back tomorrow...I have a mixed media canvas project to share with you. It's something I made for my daughter Kaley using some candy wrappers : )

Happy Crafting!!

Things I Love Mini Video

Hi Friends...I did a quick video over the weekend for the Things I Love Mini I made as a DT project for 3 Girl Jam. I used the Sheer Top Tab mini album from Maya Road and they shared this project on FB page...you can see it HERE.

There were some questions in the comments on how I did the embossing and how I came up with the idea etc so I thought it would be fun to do another video and answer those questions along with showing you some upclose shots of the mini itself.

I also did a full post on the mini that you can check out HERE.

Here's the video that's on my YouTube Channel

Be sure to come back tomorrow and check out my Scor-pal DT project using the G45 Little Darlings collection. This was up on the Scor-pal blog last Friday, click HERE to get a sneak peek of that project.

Things I love Sheer Mini

Hi Friends..I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Today I'm up over at the 3 Girl Jam Blog and I am excited to share my project with all of you here on my personal blog as well.

I created a romantic "Things I Love" mini using some of the yummy Crinkle Ribbon, Prima Romance Novel Collection and the Maya Road Top Tab Album.
I absolutely LOVE how this mini turned out. I actually only used half of the Top Tab album so I can make another one with a totally different look if I want to..love that!!

 I tried to incorporate and use the ribbon in different ways other than just making a bow or wrapping it around a tag and I really liked how this turned out. I used some gold embossing powder around the edges and inked them a bit to give them the vintage feel.

I know this was quite a string of photos so thanks for sticking with me on this post. Be sure to head over to the 3GJ blog and grab yourself some of this amazing crinkle ribbon!

Be sure to come back for another scrappy post...I have a super exciting announcement that I'll be making on my blog later on today : )

Happy Craftin!!

SCS & Scor-pal Love Fest 2013

Hi friends!! Today there is an exciting event happening over at Split Coast Stampers. The Scor-pal DT has joined in on the SCS 2013 Love Fest Flips, Flaps and Folds. Each of us created a card bursting with either flips, flaps or folds and shared it on the SCS website. You can check out the info on this event HERE. Here's my info on the card that's posted at the SCS website:As part of the Scor-pal DT, this is my card for the Love Fest Day 4 Challenge sponsored by Scor-pal.
Visit the [URL="

I chose to make a Tri-Shutter card which has lots of folds....

And here's what it looks like when you open it up...........

Such a fun and easy card to make that has some really cool folds in it which adds so much dimension and visual interest I think.

Be sure to check out the SCS website and check out the amazing cards by my fellow Scor-pal DT Sisters as well as the cards from the other companies that are joining in.

Sweet Friend

Hi Friends..today I want to share a DT project I made for Pink Persimmon. This was actually live on their blog January 30th (click HERE to see the post) but I wanted to share it on mine as well : )

I made this cute wall art for my work mom (yes at 40 I have a work mom..lol) for Christmas & she loved it.

I used the Pink Persimmon Mini Bingo stamp and I really love how it turned out.

To create the rasied portions of the bingo card I stamped this twice and cut out the decorative squares. I embossed them and added a dimensional dot on the back to make them really pop off the bingo card.

You can see the dimension a little more in this photo..

The "sweet" sentiment is from the Mini Silhouettes & Monograms stamp set
That yummy crinkle ribbon you see peeking out from the gorgeous Prima flowers is from 3 Girl Jam. Love that stuff!!!

More of the 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon tucked behind some Prima goodness.

If you haven't used any of the Pink Persimmon photopolymer stamps before..you MUST!! They stamp such clear sharp images on many different mediums. I've stamped with mine on fabric, ribbon, textured CS and much more.

Thanks for stopping by and for checking out another scrappy post AND I want to THANK all of my new followers. I seriously appreciate all of you who take the time to peruse my blog and see what I'm up to : )

Happy Scrappin!!

Sweet Friend

Hey everyone...today I have a sweet project to share with you. It's a Valentines Day card I made but I didn't use card stock for this one...it's chipboard....

I took a chipboard heart mini album I had apart and used two of the pieces to create my card. I still have enough to create a mini or to use for other projects if I want.

This was a DT project for 3GJ so you are going to see lots of yummy Crinkle Ribbon.

I wanted to use the crinkle ribbon in another way other than tying it on or wrapping it around my card so I layered it across one edge of the heart. It adds so much texture and interest. I love how this turned out.

Such a fun card and I know just the "Sweet Friend" who'll be getting this too : )
