TGIF FWF is here!

Hello my Friday Friends with Flair! I had a wonderful week and hope you all did too! For a complete list of all the FWF participants, click here.

For today I created two cards using the Unity/Donna Downey set Where You Are. I love how big these images are! This set currently unavailable on Unity's website but you can purchase it at some of the retail stores listed on here. I purchased my set from Limelight Paper Crafts as well as this awesome paper line I used from Crate Paper! It is so pretty and double sided! The Thanks sentiment on this card is from {ippity}'s set Regal Greetings.

My next card is a Birthday card I made for my DD's friend. This butterfly is huge! On both cards the images were embossed in black. Makes them pop! I added some pearls and the Happy Birthday sentiment from The {stamps} of life.

P.S. I got My Cute Stamps package in yesterday and have already started to play! Stay tuned!

P.S.S. If you want or need any {ippity} please contact me and I'll be glad to help you!

Happy Sunday Blogger Friends!

Hello! I hope you are all having a great weekend! It is beautiful here. We are heading out to enjoy our wonderful weather but first I wanted to post a link for you all. It's the site I found how to make flowers! Great site filled with all kinds of info. I just googled fabric flowers and this site popped up! I am a quilter and learned about 5 years ago how to make these but wanted to make sure I was doing them right! Have a wonderful day!

Whoo hoo its FRIDAY!!!

I love Fridays! I'm loving today even more as yesterday was a wonderful day! I had friends over to craft and I received some happy mail! I got my new DSLR camera bag from epiphan!e in! It's huge and I love it! It will fit all my camera needs in it plus my usual purse stuff! Now I don't need to carry two bags around!

On to what I made:

I love making mini books! In my never ending quest to lose weight I am finally seeing a nutritionist to help me make better food choices and I need to keep a food log. I didn't want a plain boring notebook so I decided to make my own with my bind-it-all! Love this little machine! I'm definitely taking one day at a time!

black chipboard
bind-it-all and coils
patterned ppr from Jenni Bowlin
stamps from {ippity} What Matters Most set
rhinestones from e. line (Prima)

Next I made a card for last weeks FWF inspiration challenge.

Happy Friends with Flair my Friends!

Happy Friday! I am so looking forward to a fun extended weekend! Although I hear it might snow this evening through tomorrow. UGH! This means everything will shut down until they get a handle on it. Snow is not something we are used to around here!

I am so excited to share my projects with you today. My first item is a 5x7 flat canvas piece. I love to work on canvas. Its really simple but so pretty! I sprayed some of my mist over my canvas with a flourish chipboard piece on the side. Let that dry then lifted the chipboard piece off which left me the white flourish on the side. Next I inked up the edges with burnt umber. Then I stamped my images. The flowers and quote are from "The Artist in You" set from Unity and Donna Downey. The little bird is from "Birdie Inspiration" (0ne of my favorite sets!).

Up next is a little soft canvas piece I made. This one is a little more involved. First I stamped the large red heart from Unity's Scrapbook Kit "Unforgettable Moments". Then I stamped the Love postage image from Dec. scrapbook kit in black over that. Then I lay down 2 hearts and sprayed my red mist over it all. Let dry and removed the heats. Sewed the ribbon on the edge then stamped US on fabric and cut it out. Added the rhinestones, large eyelets and ribbon. What do you think?

And lastly, my daughter saw me making these flowers and asked me if I would make four of them for her and her friends to wear in their hair. She wanted to give them ask gifts for Valentine's day! Of course she asked me last night and needed them this morning! It was a late night but I love how they turned out!

Alright my friends! I am off for another busy day! I hope you enjoyed my post. I know I will love looking at all the FWF blogs later today/tonight when I can finally relax! Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy Valentine's day!

PS: Don't forget to stop by my blog on Monday for my NEW {ippity} creations and to buy the NEW RELEASES!

It's Monday!! {ippity} Blog HOP!

Happy Monday! Welcome back to my blog! I have a couple things to share with you! First off is a frame I made for SCS Limited Supplies Challenge: LSC258 I've been Framed! I used a frame I bought at my local craft store for less than $2! Painted it red and then took my brown ink pad directly to the frame to make it look distressed. I stamped the house, tree and quote from {ippity}'s Simply Home set. Added twine and a vintage button I found in my stash.

Close up:

Next I decided to stamp some hearts (all 3 are from different {ippity} sets!) on white cardstock. Then I sewed some seed beads to the one heart. Kind of a pain but I love the look.
