Happy Birthday Mumsy!

C is for the cake we enjoy at my birthday party. I used those vintage looking Abc's cards and dolled it up with glitter (it didn't reflect in the picture). I added antique buttons and antiqued the sides of the card. Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!!

New/Old clock

My Mumsy and I went to a "Garagetique" showcase and picked up this little gem! I love it!! Just wanted to share. ;)

Pumpkins! :)

Always keep your eye out for a good deal. I know I am!! Found this cute miniature wagon at a garage sale and these gourds were from a WI farm...6 for 1$! Pumpkins 2$! Makes for great decoration of the front step! :)

Batty Wreath

I hate real bats...but love the QK bats and moon die! I made this wreath for the spooky season! I bought a "naked wreath" and added ribbon, a bow, paper bats and a spooky flower! I bent the bat wings and used glue dots. Thanks for looking!

My little ladybug

Oh poor Pinkles. Anyone have any good captions?

Spooky Flower

Paper flower technique. Sorry it is out of order! Still trying to figure out how to put pictures in order! This flower is so fun to make-I learned this at ScrapFest. It starts with 4 same sized circles, fold them in half, layer them one on top of the other, adhesive flaps onto eachother, scrunch and fold to shape to your desire! Add a brad to the middle. Double sided paper works best!

Halloween Frame

Very simple frame. I bought the "naked" frame at Archivers for 1.99 and jazzed if up with black buttons, ribbon, and a layered flower. A picture of Pinkes in here Pumpkin custom is what I need for completion! :) Thank for looking!

Pins, Needles, Clothesline, and a Bride..

New QK pin cushion die, complements of Scrapbuggy :), embroidered and the bow was made with ribbon and embroidery floss. Wood paper used to cut the base of the pin cusion.
Vintage buttons, new qk clothesline die, October Afternoon paper, and Enjoy font. Clothesline was run through a paper crimper a few times to give a rope look.

Wood paper used and staples bent to make the clothes pins look realistic.

Cricut used for corner accents. Qk bouquet die used. Font is "Calligraphy Collection" for the cricut.

For the Love of Birds!

First off, I feel so fortunate to be a designer for I absolutely love it and I am so thankful for this great opportunity. I made this little bird book for my friend, using all new dies I received!!

I absolutely love this bird cage. I painted it with crackle paint called "tarnished brass". I love this effect!

This is the cut out from the birdcage...such a cool shape!

This bird nest is so cute! I loved nestling in the eggs and some twine!
Mojo and his bed head hair!

I used Chicken Noodle font for most of the book.

These paisleys are actually the bird tail cut outs!

I finally sent this little book to my friend Linda in Wisconsin!
