Ooh La La Artful Card Kit 2

Today’s card is fancy and fun thanks to the Ooh La La Artful Card Kit, which will make you say “ooh la la!” over its lovely contents–read: elegance and whimsy with a French twist. The die cuts are awesome, and I feature 3 of the ornate frames on my card. I love the doodle style of the flowers which are very pretty, and the theme carries throughout the kit. Speaking of flowers, I’m also using some delectable Dazzles–3-Pack Pink Tiny Flowers! This pack contains a total of 128 flowers and 234 leaves, so there’s no running out for a long time! Add to the mix some luscious pearls and satin ribbon, and voilá! A beautiful card!

Feathers Stamp Set 2

This week I have another one for all you scrapbookers out there. But yet, imagine what kind of cards you could make with these beautiful products…too much creativity, not enough time! First we have the beautifully detailed Feathers Stamp Set. I only utilized two of the twenty different stamps in this set, and there are a lot of pretty ones. I love the fact that you can layer the detailed feathers on top of the more solid feathers for a nice effect. Also on my project I’ve used a couple sheets of Color Me Ebony paper and some Dylusions ink sprays. The one in the bundle is Calypso Teal, which is a lovely shade; but I also use a green color called Dirty Martini–don’t you just love the names of these colors? The Dylusions ink sprays come in all sorts of colors on Paper Wishes if you’re interested (and you should be–they are so fun to play with, and can cover a variety of surfaces. See the Webisode on them here.) I had a lot of fun making this page, and I hope you have fun too!

This week I’m doing a Valentine’s themed card! Although, you don’t really need Valentine’s Day to send a “Love” card–any day will do! I enjoyed playing around with the “Love & 5 Hearts” Cutting Dies–there’s really a lot you can do with these. Hopefully my project will be the beginning of lots more fun for you! This card is simple and sweet, using Penelope Papers, glitzy Holographic Hearts paper, and white Dazzles. Thanks so much for watching, and don’t forget to check out this week’s bundle deal!

NOTE: The bundle has been changed: the Chalkboard Embellies pack has been removed because it is currently out of stock. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This week’s project is another scrapbook page, this time using the fabulous new double-sided Chalkboard Paper Pack! I absolutely love the contrast of the dark textured chalkboard with the pretty pastel accent colors. I’m also excited to share with you the new Embellies line from Hot Off The Press. These mini embellishment sets are designed to match certain collections of products–Chalkboard, for example. I love the pretty brads and die-cuts in this pack.

In this video I also mention the Dazzles Transfer Sheet. Even though I don’t use it here, it is helpful for placing all those Dazzles that have multiple words or pieces to them. Also, here is a link to the 3-D Zots, which I use for the roses. Enjoy!

Butterfly Dazzles Card

Butterfly Dazzles Card 1

Butterfly Dazzles Card Inside

Hello, all! Today’s card is an all-purpose, all-occasion card, perfect for Birthday, Congrats, Get Well, Best Wishes, you name it! The special thing about this card in my opinion is the unique background and the holographic backed butterfly. These Butterfly Dazzles are so easy to back with paper (much easier than my North Pole Village card) since the shapes are simpler and I’m only using mainly one type of paper. It’s a specialty paper called Holographic Purple Circles. When you look at it on its own, it’s a little overwhelming, but when you use the paper in smaller pieces (like backing a Dazzle), it can give a very elegant effect!

One note on the Black PavĂ© Crystals: I didn’t get them in time for the video, but you will have the real ones and not the faux ones I used on this card! They are beautiful, by the way. Love the super pretty bling! You can also take a closer look at them and check out a product demo at this link.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone–I hope you ring in 2014 with family, friends, fun, and fabulous crafty projects! ;)

First of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all my viewers! Thanks so much for following my blog and being the reason I do what I do! This week is a special treat for all you scrapbookers out there…a scrapbook page! This is a first on my blog, but definitely not the last! I enjoyed making this page with photos of my little Gabriel. He’s already 7 months old!

Okay, back to business… The star of the page (besides the cute baby) is the reindeer die-cuts. The Flying Reindeer Cutting Dies are great for using again and again, and work especially well with this Red Jupiter Glimmer Paper. The swirls and snowflakes give the page an extra special touch. You might notice something different with how I colored the background Silver Color Me Swirls Paper…silhouetted reindeer! Watch the video to learn how I did this technique. Check out the bundle at the end for great savings, and as always, have fun and keep crafting!

North Pole Village Dazzles

North Pole Village Dazzles card

The technique I’m showing today is a form of paper piecing, wherein I back a Dazzle with various bits of patterned paper. I’m not going to lie…it’s tedious work. BUT, the result is something you can’t get any other way. AND, if you prefer, you don’t have to do paper piecing–you could just slap the sticker on solid white and color it in–it’s all up to you! Regardless of the technique you use, I hope you’ll agree that the North Pole Village Dazzles are super cute and the Holly Mix Em Dazzles are sooo great and versatile–very fun to work with!

NOTE: Sorry for the bundle delay! At the time of posting, the Mix ‘Em Holly Dazzles were backordered so we had to remove it from the bundle. However, you CAN order it separately! Here is the link to the product page. Sorry for the confusion and thank you for your patience!

In the bundle:
Rosemary & Thyme 6×6 Paper Pack
North Pole Village Dazzles
Simply Susan Ribbon Set
Green Stickles
