Prima December BAP. Tiny Feet


I created this Layout for the Prima BAP challenge. I love this challenge as you can tell I do it often. The Sketches are wonderful.

For this layout I used some old paper but definitely gorgeous paper. A oldie but goodie i guess!! hehe!! I used the Prima Pastiche paper. I used my cricut to cut out the die cut shape. I used my distress tool to rough up the edges. I also inked the edges with some vintage photo distress ink. I used a maya road chipboard banner set to create the little banner. so cute. I used some glimmer mist to color the banner. The alpha letters are from websters pages. I also used a recollections flower spray and some random flowers in my stash. The white lace i get from ebay. The gorgeous pink lace i get from Jules.

The photo was taken a couple months ago. We had won a photo session. She did a awesome job.





Thank you for stopping by. I love to read your comments. :)

Super Exciting News!


About 2 weeks ago I was contacted by Lisa asking me if I would be a part of a new department in the Swirlydoos kit club. I checked out the website and more than fell in love with the kits and the gallery.......I of course said yes. This new department will be called Swirlydoos Imagination Lab. I will be bringing you tutorials on techniques, products and more. I hope you are excited as I am. I had the pleasure of chatting with a couple of the ladies and they are so wonderful. If you are looking for a shabby styled kit club....this one is for you. If you look at the past kits they are gorgeous. I will be designing with Lynne. She is so super talented. We start in January!

Mojo Monday 214


It has been WAY too long since I last blogged. I have been away for a month visiting my family so I was so anxious to get back to my desk and create something. I needed a little inspiration so i decided to do this weeks sketch. It was super simple.

I used some Bo Bunny paper. I love this paper. Thanks Ann! I also used my cricut to cut out the butterfly I used the Tie the Knot cartridge. and I also used my sizzix to cut out the lacey circle. I used a sticker from the collection as well!

12x12 Layout for TPBP


I have had this idea for this layout since I got the gorgeous trims from TPBP. Using mostly embellishments and lace and very little paper. I did use a little bit of Websters Pages Hollywood Vogue paper. I used some fabulous flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. I also tried out Tammy's ruffle flower trim Tutorial. I love love how it turned out. The ruffle trim that Bev sells is so soft and gorgeous. I layered 2 different laces on top of eachother. I glimmer misted the bottom layer. it came out gorgeous. I punched out some butterflies from some vellum. This layout was so much fun to make and Bevs trims made it so gorgeous.
Here is the links to the available trims

White Beaded Lace

Vintage Embroidered Lace
Plum Beaded Trim
