Spellbinders love

I really am in love with this new Spellbinders die I purchased.  I love all the leaf elements, the wreath, etc.

I created this lovely card for a co-worker who is on leave right now for a few weeks, just to give some encouragement and let her know we are all thinking of her.

Here's a peak of the some of the elements.  I started the card by embossing with a Sizix folder.  Die cut the wreath and elements using some cardstock, etc.  Embossed "Just a Note" with some gold embossing powder and finally added some gold-toned gems to add a little sparkle.

Beautify die isn't it.




A beachy life

I just adore my grandchildren and love every opportunity to show them off.  Recently my daughter had the opportunity to have a professional photo shoot at the beach.  

This photo just makes me happy!  Love their smiles, etc.

I started a mixed media canvas with a "beachy" theme to capture the venue.  

I've used scrapbook paper, white gesso, patina paste (Finnibair), Tattered Angels Spray, Gelatos and chipboard words.

I love how it turned out.

Mixed Media and some cards

I am obsessed lately with mixed media, really having some fun creating some unique pieces.  I tried my first mixed media recently and, while I'm not finished with it yet, I really like it.  Also, my passion is still cardmaking, etc. and creating one of kind mini albums and boxes.

Easter Greetings

Just a little Easter greetings card this morning.  As I mentioned before, I love digital images.  I used a digital image from Iramalija's etsy shop and creme cardstock (which I put the base through en embossing folder) and tied up with some Stampin Up ribbon and finished with a pretty prima flower.

Happy Anniversary

I wanted to make a vintage look anniversary card for my Mom and Step-Dad.  My Mom loves my cards and I know she appreciates them.  I used some digital images from Iralamija.  I am obsessed with digital images lately, they are so versatile.  Love mixing the stamped with vintage also.   The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and the button is from Recollections.

Keepsake Boxes

I love creating items that have that vintage feel.  Below are two boxes that I made for two people I love and care about alot.  Inside, some perfume, a little love.  I love using digital images and Prima flowers whenever I can.

A mini album

I wanted to give my daughter Megan a sweet little mini album for her beautiful new daughter Avery.  I'm a very proud Grandma.  Avery is a sweet little baby girl; she is truly a gift from God.  

I used a Prima Flower, antique pink leaves.  I used Stampin Up chocolate chip ink for the saying, from Stampin Up - Curvy Sayings.  The paper is from DCWV.  I love creating these kinds of mini albums.  They are small enough to create for a special occasion or event.  I love creating them and giving them away.

Three Little words....

Really felt like making a new card this morning.  I love butterflies and loved the soft romantic look of this paper from DCWV.  The stamp is from StampinUp-Three Little Words.  Ink is old olive.
