Sweet Tilda


I made this card..which is called the Brick Wall card...for a STSB sister. I love how she turned out. I used SU red cardstock...GinaK luxury white to stamp Sweet Tilda on and then I cut it into lil' brick-like shapes. Then put it back together like a brick wall pattern. I spritzed the big flower in the upper rt hand corner with Red Velver G. MIst..added the smaller deep red Prima and a gem. On the bottom lt hand corner I used a white prima I dusted the edges with SU Red Riding Hood ink...and a deep red prima. Added small pearls to the center of them. USed a Tim HOltz Memo Pin holding a SU Mini tag stamped with the word *friends*. Used a red gingham ribbon to adorn the corners and tye in the upper rt hand corner. I LOVE how it turned out...

Creative Ideas

Hello to all...

Here are a few items I have made...altered for a swap I was just in called 12 Days of Christmas on the CMB. I love how they turned out and hope that my SS does as well.

I used a canvas board..sprayed with Pashmina glimmer mist. CUt the words from my Cricut E  and glued them where I wanted them. Sprayed over the words! ONce dry..I lefted the words off. THEN..I had a heart in the upper rt hand corner. I used  Tim HOltz age mahgoney crackle paint on it..added a grunge flower and prima swirl.  On the lower lt hand corner...I added grunged flowers spritzed with glimmer mist , ran a hand-crocheted ribbon thru the center loop and made the ends look ruffled. Added more flowers with pearl centers. I LOVE how it turned out..

I altered this pocket planner in my SS fav color...purple. IT did turn out quiet nice..even though I'm NOT a purple person...tee hhhe.  I used the paper from  M's the ribbon is grosgrain and the small flowers are prima..a variety. Added pearls to the center . THe large purple flower is sugared in the center...then cut her monogram out on the Cricut using the Storybook cart.

THANKS for looking...leave some love!

Lunch Box Mini Notecards

I enjoyed making these tiny things! Soo cute...and they can be used for journaling spots on layouts just not as notecards. It was another swap on the Cricut board. I really like the animal print...:)

I made ~~~
5 Girly Girl---they are all pink with prima flowers, velvet ribbon and bling.

5 Thinking of you---I thought these did well. Could be for a girl or boy..

6 Animal themed...I enjoyed these...the paper is flocked and the colors are perfect.



I made these cards for a swap on the Cricut board. I love how they turned out....

Teal birthday...I used pre-scored cards for it. Then added the layers. I sprayed the large flower with Jazz Blue Glimmer mist and dried it. Used smaller prima flowers...pearls and gems. The memo pin is Tim Holtzs. I LOVE these pins!!! I had stamped the tiny tag from the set called TINY TAGS by Stampin' Up. The punch is from SU as well. I inked the edges of it..and the Happy Birthday! is from Stampabilities at Hobby Lobby.

Yellow Thinking of a pre-cut card as well. Looks like a tag! I used papers from Micheal's and blue bazzill cardstock. The large yellow florwer is a Prima and the smaller ones are too. The glittery brown center is a Fabric Fancy Prima. I used a wide looped pale yellow ribbon and then layered a chocolate brown lace on top...soo pretty. The saying stamp is  from Stampin' Up. Pearls from Hobby Lobby.

ENJOY the cards...leave  feedback, plz.


First Mini Album

This is my very first handmade mini album. I got the idea from a friend on the Cricut Message board that had sent one similiar to me. Thank you Maureen!!!! It was for a swap to Jen on the Cricut board. She loved it.  It was made from legal size envies cut down to 6 inches in length. I used a pc of chipboard at 3 inches folded and scored to keep the envies in place. Chipboard front and back to stablized the book. I used SEI ...Aunt Gertie's Garden paper collection...Bazzill pink, brown and sage cardstock to match the papers.  Pearls, gems, Prima flowers, Tim Holtz memo pin, cork paper, ribbons..and a coin envie. I used Martha Stewart's deep edge border punch for the scallops on the edge of the pages. I truely enjoyed making did take some time...but well worth it. Jen almost didnt' get LEave a message and let me know how I did, plz.

My FIRST colored Tilda

Hello to all...

As promised...once I finished my first Tilda coloring I was going to post it. I colored the Journal writing Tilda and cut her out. I used her on an altered book for a  friend. I sooooo loved how it turned out....I hope she does as well.

I had purchased the book from the dollar store...covered it in Bazzill cardstock. Used a blue gingham ribbon for the binding...and then another strip of the same ribbon...twisted and placed on the book. I used two silk flowers and a big blue gem. Placed Tilda as if sitting on the ribbon. THen I added pearls from Queen & each end of the ribbons.  I added a silver frame with the words * a little note* inside it.  The colors of copics I used are....for the dress/socks...B91-93-95...for her hair...E31 and 33...her skin...E50-51-53 and the book is RV29 . I love to hear comments...leave a msg...

I altered this photo frame for my partner in the shoebox swap on the Cricut site. It's for the day **Shabby Chic**. I love how it turned out...I wanted to keep it...I hope she likes it as much as I do :) It started off being a plain boring photo frame. I painted it a lt sage green and pink in random areas on the frame until covered. Then painted it with Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle paint. LOVE that stuff!!! I then added some wedding lace given to me by a friend, THanks Nancy!...and used flowers also cut by Nancy. I painted one of them with the same crackle paint. Then folded the edges...The dictionary print I crumpled together...and glued down....spread them out after on...then used Cherry Blossom Glimmer mist on it. I also used Prima Flourishes in pink pearls to accent the flowers. Then I added the word by Me and My Big Ideas **MY LOVE**. It is for a photo of her Fiance. I just love it.....soo proud of how it turned out.
