Thinking of You

Hello there. 
It has been a while since I have done a blog post. I apologize. I have been on vacation, and just enjoying the summer. 



Today I have a card to share. I used the Bo Bunny Little Miss collection. I used the 6x6 paper pad. I used the Vintage oval die from Verve Stamps. I stamped my sentiment on the die cut. The stamp I used is from the Kind Words stamp set. I also used the floral stamp from the stamp set as well. I used some ribbon and lace from The Piece by Piece. I finished the card off with a cute Kaisercraft flower. 

Here is another picture.

Altered stackable boxes

Hi everyone. 

I have a project to share with you for The Piece by Piece



I got these paper mache boxes a while ago. I finally had the inspiration to alter them. It was so much fun. I used the Pink Paislee Hope Chest paper collection. I covered all the boxes inside and out with the paper. I then used a Blue Fern Studios flourish that I sprayed with LSG Jack Frost. The frame is from Manor House Creations. The doily is a die cut. I used a journal piece from the Pink Paislee collection and I stamped a quote from Verve Stamps. I added some Petaloo flowers and some butterflies with pearls. I used all the lace and wrapped it around the boxes. 

Here are some more pictures

A few tags. Verve Stamps.

Hi there. 

Today I have a couple tags to share with you for Verve Stamps. One is going to be used as a bookmark but the other one I might turn into a magnet for the fridge. 



I used some cream cardstock and I used the Let it Be stamp set. I used Momento ink in Rich cocoa for the verse and Prima blue pastel chalk ink for the flowers. I used seam binding for the top and punched out a couple butterflies and added some pearls. I inked the edges with vintage photo to finish them off. 

Here is some more pictures.
