Yo-Yo Bouquet

Can't get enough of these yo-yos. :) I have a jar full now! Super easy to make when you are watching t.v. I used my qk vase and of white crackle paint.

Been playing with my new dies and paperline lately! Here is "Blissful" paper by Authentique. I also used my new nesting blossom and nesting eyelet rectangles! I made this flower using my dies and then folding between each petal. I then ran my scissors along each edge to distress. I then pinched each crease upwards so the petals curled a little. The center is a vintage snap for sewing! Thanks for looking!

Practice Perfect Happiness

Been loving this new Authentique paperline! I used my new nesting eyelet rectangle die, which I love how small the itty bitty nesting dies get! I added my vintage ribbon and button, and can't forget my latest craze, a couple of fabric yo-yos! :)

Sorry the coloring is a little off-been playing with the color saturater since the sun sort of washes out the color sometimes!
Thanks for looking!

Say "Yes" to the Dress

Do you ever watch that show? I can't stop watching it! Anyways, maybe my card is suggesting I watch it too much! :) Here I used a mini hanger clip and my wedding dress qk die. I used my new foam stamps to accent each corner. I used my favorite white crackle pain.

Thanks for looking!


I had a lot of fun making this card, as soon as I got the new LC coral dies I knew they would look perfect in a fish bowl! I didn't have a template for a fish bowl so I just cut out a circle and sliced each side (more on the top than the bottom) until it looked "right". I then added a small strip to the top to hold both sides of the card together and rounded each end. My friend Pam found the fish buttons and the rocks on the bottom are crumpled up gray paper that I chalked.

For the inside, I used my new Tiki alphabet! :)
