Tsunami Rose Designs DT Project

Hello, all you wonderful crafters! Today I want to share with you my project for Tsunami Rose Designs. This is an awesome digital paper kit, called Hummingbird

I joined a swap in a Facebook Group for a Loaded Envelope. And while I've never ever done a Loaded Envelope before, I thought it sounded like a lot of fun! And the first thing I thought of using was the hummingbird kit. Hummingbirds are beautiful and have always fascinated me! And they go great with Shabby Chic styles, or just about anything really. Here is what I did:

Front with Goodies in Pocket


Back with Tag Pocket


Wand and Lace with Stick Pins Goodies

Emptied Pocket


Accordion Fold - Side View

Empty Back Pocket for Tags

My Very First Wand - I hope my swap partner likes it! By the way, I made the straw for this using a YouTube video by Kelly Barlow Creations. I got the Loaded Envelope Tutorial from KSP by Luisa.

I have to tell you, this was a very challenging project for me, but it was one of those where I just HAD to do it! I wanted a challenge, and I sure got it! Be sure to check out TRD and all the other designers blogs! Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw

Now let me share with you my project, using Chickadee Greetings. I absolutely love this digital! It was a clean and simple design, yet it packs a lot of punch! And I love birds anyway, so this was an easy one for me to do!



I love the colors of this. Normally, I would use red with black and white, but because I wanted the color of the Chickadee to be close to the real bird, I decided to use the yellow colors with the rest of the card, too. And it turned out so much better then expected. 
There will be more details and inspiration in our upcoming online issue for July-August 2017. Be sure to check it out!

Outlawz Color Challenge June 27th, '17

Hello, crafty peeps! Today starts another fun Color Challenge over at the Outlawz! For the month of June, we have the wonderful Digi Stamps 4 Joy as our sponsor! They will give the winner $10 to spend in their store! You can get a lot for that!

Now let's see what our photo inspiration is for this week:
If you notice, you'll see that it's not just about color this week...there's a twist to it! Add Texture! I was excited about that, as I love adding texture to everything project I make, if there's any way possible. Now here is my tag:

I really love this image, Dream Dress, from Sheepski Designs. Andrea has some beautiful images in her shop, so I hope you check it out!

After I colored her in, I took some DSP and adhered it to the tag base, then I got a stencil plus texture paste and spread it onto the tag. I'm impatient, so I heated it up to dry instead of letting it dry on it's own, the sprayed some coloring on top of that. I next added all of my lace, pearl drops, and embellishments to the tag. As you can see, I also added some pearl sprays. In my opinion, there is no right or wrong in making a tag...it should be something that please your eye, making it your very own. Tags are one of my favorite things to do!

I hope that you will join us for this week's challenge. It'll be a lot of fun!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #128

Hello, fellow crafters! Today starts a new challenge over at the Crafty Gals Corner blog! "Any Holidy" is the theme for this week. And we have 2 wonderful sponsors for this challenge. They are:

Rick St. Dennis 

Prize: 2 Digital Images


Prize: 3 Digital Images

For my card, I chose the Christmas Poinsettia by Lemon Shortbread. She is so cute! I have to admit, with my eyes having some issues right now, I had some trouble with the coloring. They're on the mend, but I wish it would hurry up! Drives me crazy! Lol! Anyway, here is my card:
Front with Window View

Inside
I used a Sizzix die to cut out the window and my Silhouette to cut out my image and the sentiments. Of course, I used my Prismacolors on her. 

I hope that you will join us this week for the challenge! Be sure to check out the Design Team inspirations too!

Outlawz Color Challenge - June 20th

Hello, crafters! Do you know what time it is?? It's time for another fun Color Challenge over at the Outlawz! For the month of June, we have the wonderful Digi Stamps 4 Joy as our sponsor! They will give the winner $10 to spend in their store! Woo-hoo!

This week's Color Challenge was chosen by our very own DT, Cara! Now, here is the inspiration for this challenge. Choose any 4 or all of the colors from this photo...but it can't be a card!
Isn't that an awesome photo? So, I got to thinking...it's been awhile since I made a pillow box. And, they're also fun to decorate. Here is my Pillow Box Project:
You can stuff so many different kinds of goodies in these boxes, for anyone special, a birthday, make it a wedding table decor, etc! You can make these out of toilet paper rolls, but I chose to use my Silhouette to cut mine out. I then added lace around the center and hot glued my flowers and butterflies in the center of the box. The blue and white flower is one I made about 2 or 3 weeks ago. The color went great with the inspiration. The butterflies are made by Reneabouquets. Love them! 

I do hope that you will join us for this challenge! What makes this one more fun, is that you can make any project for it, except a card!

Have a blessed day!
