Fun Project

I went to my friends 30th anniversary party and took pictures I wanted to give her something she
would remember. So I made the above scape book and box for her to keep it in. Thought I
would share the box top because I think it is cool.
Wanted to try the spellbinders spiral blossom one for the silver roses I made and
I used the Heartfelt creations Belle Rose (HCD712) for the Leaves. Hope you like it as much as I do.
Making the flowers is awesome and fun. 
Oh I almost forgot: I purchased the special white paper which is awesome for making flowers from Joans Gardens, and because I wanted Silver I used Adirondacks Silver Acrylic paint dabber to color them.

Joan's Gardens Challenge #2
My card: The background is Graphic 45 Renaissance Faire collection.
               I used my new Polynesian Sails oval Dollie for the window using
               willow bazzil card stock over the embossed Holly twig from Cuttlebug.
              Using Selma's tech, I used Adirondack ink pad "Willow"for the background.
              My Holly berry corners are from the new Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium collection.
               Actually cut from the back cover - they are beautiful -
              I used Rangers Queen's Gold embossing power on my sentiment Cut from Spellbinders
              "Twisted tags and accents". My Doves are from a EK punch and pearls. The stamp
              for Happy Holidays is Inkadinkado. Can you tell I like Holly, I have it growing at my house
              as well.

I really love these Challenges -

Good Wet Morning,

    I can't believe I have not posted in so long, but I am so excited today - I was at Joans Gardens yesterday
and it was a beautiful day - oh it was raining off and on but when you are there everything is so up beat and exciting you don't even notice bad weather.  Anyway  of course I purchased more than I needed but I love every product so much and I plan to start getting more posted. My goal is tomorrow to post a new card for you to see, the products I have purchased and what you can do.  Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Hi Ladies,

 I do envy anyone who can work a computer - I just can't get this

This was my choice for This weeks challenge
 I used (2) Cuttlebug folders to emboss the "Paper Cuts" satin paper, edged the edges with Tim Holtz Pealed Paint distress ink pad. Glued to white card stock that I had distressed with the pealed paint distress pad using the Tim Holtz distress tool with the cotton pad normally used with Alcohol inks. I love the look it give to paper.  The lamp post (my first Cherry Lynn design die) not the last, love them, was double cut for the effect. I used Bazzil card stock cocoa and cream then using the Spica yellow glitter pen to highlight. "Friends" stamp is Inkadinkado, dragonfly also double cut for shadow effect is a sizzix (old) die. Mint green pearls are from Kaiser and the two ribbons are from my pieces box. The little turtle is a Heather stamp and I used crystal lacquer so he would shine under the lamp post.
