Sweet little Christmas Angel!

Good morning!
The pink Bo Bunny papers in the Scraps Of Darkness 'Snow Angels' kit was perfect for this wonderful photo of my oldest granddaughter!

I began by  layering and distressing my papers.

I made a cluster of flowers using the flowers from the main kit and floral add on as well as some from previous kits!
The poinsettias started as gold but they did not match my layout so I covered them with white gesso and then misted them with Lindys mists from a previous kit.  I also wanted to add some sparkle and shine so I added some very fine glitter from my stash and the wonderful pink gems from the kit.

I cut the title from one of the Bo Bunny papers and added a few gems

Cards! Cards! Cards!

Good morning!
I love making Christmas cards....I don't always get to send them out but I love making them!
I used the Scraps Of Darkness 'Snow Angels' kit to make these fun cards!

It was fun!  
I layered the wonderful Bo Bunny papers, and then cut a piece of vellum for the sentiment.
The flower and ribbon was from stash.

I used the wonderful snow pen that you puff up with a heat gun!

My neighbor will love this card!
I used the die cuts from the main kit and layered them.
I added some gems!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

My first layout with the 'Snow Angels' kit

Good morning!
Although I do not like the cold I do love winter and the snow!

I took this photo a couple of years ago when Tyler built a snow dragon!  The awesome Bo Bunny papers were prefect!

I did lots of layering with the die cuts from the elements add on

I cut up the velum sheet to use as a title!

Thanks for stopping by!
Stop by tomorrow to see a couple of cards I made!

Petaloo and Graphic 45

Hey everyone! I am back to share a really fun project I created for one of my end tables for my guest spot with Petaloo when I start to decorate this year!  I started off with just a little Brownie camera like this...


and turned it into this


I covered it with the beautiful Graphic 45 papers


and added some of the Graphic 45 cards


I tied some lace around the handle


I started adding the gorgeous Petaloo poinsettia's and picks!

On the back I toed it closed with some lace and I added some texture paste then while it was still wet I added epson salts to look like snow and add some more sparkle!


on the inside of the camera I added a Christmas tree and two carolers and more 'snow'

Thanks to Petaloo for having me guest!  I had a wonderful time!
Merry Christmas!

Petaloo, Graphic 45 and fun!

Hi everyone!!!   I am excited to be asked back to guest design this month for this awesome blog hop with Graphic 45 and Xyron!
I had so much fun creating with the awesome Petaloo and Graphic 45 products!!!!
The first item I created is for my my dining room table...


I altered a wine bottle to create this fun and whimsy centerpiece


I started off with a plain wine bottle, added layers of gesso, then crackle medium. then modeling paste.  I then added my colors with mists....


I added the Graphic 45 paper I cut out.

I then started to layer all the beautiful poinsettia's from Petaloo

I love those stars - they are sparkly and were the perfect finishing touch!

A Halloween 2 page layout!

Good morning!
 I do not normally create 2 page layouts but I thought it would be fun to with the awesome Haunted kit from Scraps Of Darkness!

This is my boys when they were younger....

I LOVE the Bo Bunny Simply Wicked papers....

I did a punch of layering with the papers and some of the gorgeous ribbon that was in the main kit!

I used a bunch of the journaling cards to create a cluster of embellishments

the other side....

 The 'cursed' paper is awesome! and I cut up the creepy paper to add some visual interest

I used a stuck? sketch!
