It’s Almost Valentine’s Day

12 02 2017

I’ve been busy this weekend making some valentine projects – yay!

  1. The corset purse  with little roses embossed on the white is from the Silhouette Store.
  2. The bon bon gift box (the top comes off) is from SVG Cuts.
  3. And the cute little Valentine card for my son’s class is also from the Silhouette store, as is the digital paper design. This was a print & cut project 🙂

I hope you’re set for Valentine’s day, whether it’s extravagant or simple, it doesn’t matter. What matters is you’re with loved ones.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂





Feelin’ It!

4 02 2017

hello-light-houseSo I got a title change for that last project and it flowed and I was happy with how it turned out.

My reward for being an adult? Coloring.

I used the stamp set Down by the Seaside by Inkadinkado. I went a little old school with embossing powders, but used a stamp aligning tool I have (that isn’t really meant for that, but works wonderfully) and markers to layer color on the stamp, then press it into the paper. My last layer of ink was a clear versamark. I applied clear embossing powder to the image and heated it up. If you’ve played with this before, you know it effectively masks the area you’ve covered, which in this card is everything I colored. This allowed me to sponge in the sky without messing up the coloring too much. After that, I embossed my greeting in white, then  finished assembling my card.

Hopefully you got to do something fun today, too.

Thanks for stopping by! XOXOXO





Fairy Cottage

fairy-house-for-posting-2Have I mentioned how much I love 3D?

Here’s another house. I’ve made this one before, but decorated differently because I was doing a winter theme. With this one, I’m trying to urge spring to get here quicker 🙂

This and the Victorian House in the previous post, and another house posted further down are for a silent auction at my kids’ school. It will be interesting to see what the interest in something like this is. This is an SVG Cuts file and you can find all the fun here.

Victorian Row House – in Paper

1 02 2017

img_0963I have fallen in LOVE with 3D paper projects.

This was part of the Parkside Row kit from SVG Cuts. If you’re interested, you can find out more about this fabulous kit here.

I googled Painted Ladies (because somehow I remembered this random name) and used those as inspiration for color and decoration. I modified a few things, used embossing folders (have I mentioned I really like texture, too?) ink, and markers.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂
