This is an Oldies But Goodies Hop. Let me tell you first of all, I have not used alot of my materials in so long that I've considered myself a i had fun with this. I haven't made any Xmas cards yet and thought I'd better get started before I fall behind. I made a matching envelope with the Martha Stewart Score board. I found making my own envies some much fun and easier now.

Hope you all like it...all materials are old but still very much loved.

Another Experiment :) Bow maker...

"If you have never tried the bow easy…then you truly are missing out!  It’s simple, it is a great tool to have, and your gunna love how the bow becomes fluffy and perfect every time”.

Well I heard all of this and was never really interested…I do all my own bows without any problem and at any size I want…then I got curious…lol

 I had an old piece of chipboard from the back of a legal note pad. I cut it in three and just measured what typical sizes I normally use for my cards…
I made one (green with brown circles) with 2 slots that makes 5/8th of an inch and 7/8ths of an inch bow size.
Another one (orange with white flowers) with 1 slot that makes 1 ¼ inch bow.
The last one (grey with brown flowers) with one slot makes 1 ½ inch bow.

I cut out the chipboard with a craft knife and then covered it with patterned tape I got from the $1 bin at  Michael’s. the tape I found works well when it’s stretched to keep it bound nice and tight. The ribbon also slides off quite nicely also :) 
Another experiment...went well :)
Have a great day!

Experimented Making Flowers

So I woke up this morning feeling very tired…I’ve been dreaming quite a bit and that alone tends to tire out your body…however I have been feeling much better than I have in a long that is a good thing…
I have been experimenting and working on some stuff to share with you all. I was never really interested in the prima like flowers with all the glitter even though I love shimmer to live up a project. Here are of the flowers I have worked on...whaddya think ?

The first picture have two flowers made with Bazzill fabric flowers that I had forever!!! I took the time to trim them and dye them and shimmer spray them! I love the way the turned out. The middle one is made from organza in six layers LOVE IT!!
The second picture were a little more difficult because of materials I was using...raffia, Victorian lace wide organza, satin ribbons...I have seen them posted and loved the look so i decided to try my hand at them... :) I\m quite I have to figure out which one I will use for
Have a great weekend everyone!

Pick My Favorite :)

Good Morning!

I am posting up three cards today and you all have to guess which one if my favorite...
now i do like them all and they all are the same colors but there is one that i do favor the most. The image itself is adorable and from The Greeting Farm. I wasn't to copic savvy and almost the whole collection, so I did practice allot and really liked how some of the images I've done turned out. You might not be able to see it unless you open the image but used shimmer paint on the edges to give it a pearlized look.

so here is the first One

And here is the Second One

And this one is the Third one :)

Hope you have a great day all!


Stamps: TGF
Paper: Retired Summer Sun, Really Rust, Neenah Solar white, K& Company DP
