Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.
Hello everyone! I know tomorrow is Valentines Day but I thought I would post this today...My Husband got me a Dozen Roses yesterday. He has not done that in quite a while but it is very appreciated. We usually just do for our girls. He also bought our daughters a tiger and doggie stuffed animals. They love their stuffed animals.
So I just wanted to say Happy Valentines Day to everyone out there. If you don't have that special someone to celebrate with this is for you!!! I will share my love with all of you! ENJOY!
My 3rd post for today....My oldest daughter is having a Valentines day party. She was asked to make cards or something for her class. So we Came up with these cute lollipop treats. She had to make for 11 boys and 9 girls....so 20 all together. I know in this picture there is not 20 I had to make 2 more today. Anyways, She picked the bears for girls and monsters for boys.
Card recipe: (Treats)

I cut slits for the lollipops with an exacto knife
Added 3d paint (raspberry paint) for the bears noses
I added white gel pen in the back for to: and from: ...and we stamped a Happy Valentines Day on the back of the card / treat. Added lollipops and wala a simple treat!
For the boys we made ARGH (monsters) cut @ 3 3/4" with the mini monsters cartridge

Added heart stickers to the eye patch since my daughter did not want to make them girly but yet wanted them Valentinesy (I know that is not the word but you know what I mean...LOL)

Hello again. This is my 2nd post for today. My nieces birthday is coming up and she is having a birthday party this weekend so I needed to make her a card. I have never tried painting on a layout or card before....love this technique though and might use it again. Love how this turned out and hopefully you ladies will to and give it a try.
I used acrylic paints (pure orange, hotpink/rose, and lemon custard) painted the background added some white dots with a white marker
Stamp - dragonfly which I colored in with my prisma markers (got these for a birthday gift from my MIL)
Used 3d paint iridescent white mist (dotted 3 on the top of card)
Added bakers twine, used my dies inside and added a vellum sticker with a birthday saying. Hope you enjoy. Very easy card to make and so much fun to use some paints.
Hello ladies. This is a mason jar I altered into a vase. I have so many of these mason jars sitting around I thought I would try to make something out of it. Love how it came out.
I used some acrylic paint (Rink/ Rose) ...I painted the jar about 4 times in between let it dry, I then used sandpaper to give It an older feel by sanding some of the paint off, added some ribbon, beaded charm that I made out of fishing line and some beads I had in my stash
I used a Peace Charm and key...then added flowers to the inside of the jar. You can use what ever you like I just had these laying around in my stash! I hope you enjoy. Very simple project so I encourage you to try and make a few of these. Working on another one but not quite done with it.
