My Girl

Hello, my fellow scrappers, it's me Lisa back! Today I wanted to "Share" with you a new layout made with the amazing "Botanique"Papers from GCD and Donna Salazar Designs. They are so soft and beautiful! They also are compatible to be designed with Zutter and Spellbinders die cool is that!
This smirky smiling girl, Roxy, my girl is a rare moment in time because she rarely smiles showing her teeth! My baby girl is where my heart is....

Here you can see the flowers made with "Rose Creations" by Donna. The paper was all white at first, I chalked the edges, then I used "Smooch Spritz" Pralines and Cream. For the final touch I used "Glue Gloss" and "Fairy Dust Glitter" Let me tell you those flowers really sparkle!

Under all those beautiful flowers, I used B.Y.O.B. (Build Your Own Bling)....Lots of pieces to chose from and you can place them wherever you want without cutting them up....because it is all ready done for you!

I used 2 heart doilies and placed a spellbinders "Nested Hearts" in grey over the top. The white ink is "Mix'd Media" in Jasmine with matching "Mix'd Media" embossing powder in Jasmine. Let me tell you, I have looked for a long time for a really good white ink with white embossing powder....well, I LOVED how white these products get! Ok, I'm totally hooked!

Heartfelt Wednesday's

Hi, welcome back for another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! This is more of the fabulous New collection "Western Elements" Collection. As you see between the "My Guy" collection and this New "Western Elements" the two are meant for each other...
Of course, don't forget all the other great stamps and diecuts that makes this layout complete....lots to choose from!
These photos are more of my girlfriend, Crystal, she sure is a perfect "Western Lady" and it makes it easier for me to scrap these wonderful western collections.

Here you can see the beautiful "Western Elements" stamps and with the "Rustic Western Elements" makes the wheel pop. I added a little brad in the center.

I love the "Daisy Patch" flowers and "Daisy Patch Dies" to make these fun yellow flowers. I added Black Gala Glitz in the center for some bling. The ferns from "Woodland Growth" are great for a little foliage...I did fussy cut them it is a bit tedious...but worth the end results. The circle with the title in the background was "Layered Scalloped Posy" a super wanted item this year! The crafters cord in green is the finishing

More flowers and the "Palisade Farmstead" fence and "Rustic Western Elements" die was a must for the strip of paper that I usually like on the bottom. See the black swirls? Those are from "Bella Rose" diecut. I just LOVE swirls!

Hope you enjoyed this week's was a sketch made by Nadia Cannizo....soooo beautiful! Thank you Nadia! Be sure to stop by Heartfelt creations Blog for more beautiful designs by our DT.

Blessings of the Lord *CR84FN*

Well, I made another card tonight based of the CR84FN colors. They are so soft and beautiful!
The colors are: Medium Pink, Tan and Cream.
I have been using pink lately and I love the tan and cream....use it all the time!

Here is my 5 x 6 card for the color challenge.....
I used lots of beautiful prima flowers that I have been neglecting lately....It sure was super fast making this card by using them...I was so glad they matched my paper perfectly. :)

I used "Floral Ovals" from Spellbinders and the sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations called "Book Frame 2" it also has some book frames too.

Check out the details of this amazing Butterfly from Cheery Lynn Designs! WOW! So delicate!
This is a set of 3 called "Exotic Butterflies Small 2" them!

Shabby Chic Birthday

Hi, Today I made this card using the fun sketch from Mojo Monday. I was inspired by Mary Fish using cupcakes for the circles. Thank you! I wanted to make a shabby chic cupcake card using pinks, blues and pearls.
Here is the sketch this week.

Here is my shabby chic cupcake 5 x 7 card. I used "Sweet Treats" with my cricut for the base of the cupcakes, then I used my crimper to make the cupcake liners. I embossed with "D'vine Swirls" cuttlebug for the cream frosting and added pearls, pink flowers and grey roses.
I used my new "Romantic Rectangles and cut it so be smaller so I could add the MS punch and banner on the bottom.

There are pop dots under the cupcakes and more pearls on top. The banner is Spellbinders and I printed Happy Birthday from my computer.

These cupcakes look almost good enough to eat! lol
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Wonderful Birthday!

Hi, I wanted to share a card that I made by scraplifting Becca Feeken's beautiful card. I happened to find her blog recently and when I seen this card...i knew I wanted to make it for a birthday card. Thank you Becca!
It is pretty much the same except, I added an extra oval, different stamp sentiment, different paper and a different butterfly. I was at the scrapbook convention yesterday when I bought the beautiful Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Romantic Rectangles. OMGoodness! They are so delicate and them! I also bought the butterfly from Cheery Lynn Designs, it is called Exotic Butterflies Small #2. They are so delicate too! Perfect for cards and scrapbooking layouts. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations called Inspire Me Sentiments. I used some tim holtz ink to get the perfect match to my paper.

As you can see here, I used the "Romantic rectangle for the card base. I scored .25 inch on the back of the card so it would open and also used the same patterned paper by Graphic 45 inside. When I plan on using it I will add one more piece of cream paper for my personal birthday wishes. I also added some pop dots under the small "Floral Ovals" and under the sentiment oval, which is also by spellbinders called "Classic Ovals Large"

A closer view of how detailed these Spellbinder diecuts really look. I added some cream pearls and sheer ribbon like Becca....

Hope you are inspired as much as I sure to check her blog out! Stunning work!
Have a great Sunday!

There's NO Place Like Home

Once again this evening, I was able to make another card based on Mojo Monday's # 236 sketch. As I was looking for papers, I started to think about my mother and how there is no place like home....missing her very much....
Here is the sketch by Teresa Kline....thank you!

Thinking about my mother and all the shabby chic things she loves, I used papers from K & Company and then thought about home cooking....a miss those days when we used to get together for holidays when my children were small....sigh....
So do remember all those stickers that we all start off with when we first start scrapping and cardmaking? Or still do? Well, I have soooo many just sitting in a drawer and was finally able to bring one out to use! YAY! It was perfect for the look that I was going for....

The cookie sheet and wisk are super shiny metallic paper, really gives the card a shine with all the vintage papers.

I printed up the "Missing You" and "There's NO Place Like Home" on Microsoft for Mac using two different fonts....I also used those super duper tiny cream pearls all around the card base and circle for a little extra vintage bling.

Have a great evening!!

Easter Basket #2

Hi, since Easter is coming this Sunday, I wanted to make another basket for my girlfriend at work before the weekend....she loves pink flowers and ribbon....I'm so sure she will love this little basket made with Heartfelt Creations "Decorative Layered Basket Die". This little basket is 2.75 x 3.5 inches and it is perfect for adding just a touch of candy or gift card.
It is soooo fast to make with the diecut, no need to do much except glue it together.
The side strip of paper to make the insert is in the same green cardstock is 1 inch wide by 6.5 inches long, then scored at 2.5 inches and 4 inches.

A little closer view....

The leaves are from Spellbinders "Foliage" and I embossed them and then crunched them a little bit. Glue them down and add Prima flowers. I bit of pink sheer ribbon in a bow with some green tulle for the inside and it is done! Easy and super fast....took me about 10 minutes to make. :) If you dont have this diecut for this Easter, no worries....there are many ideas for other holidays at Heartfelt Creations and there is always next year!

Hope everyone has a Great Easter with family, loved ones and friends.

Shabby Chic Shutters *Donna Salazar Designs*

Hi, Welcome back to my new post for Donna Salazar Designs!
So, today I am sharing with you a tutorial to make some "Shabby Chic Shutters". Distressed shutters seem to be popular right now so I decided to make them myself with Donna's amazing Corrugated Cardboard by Zutter....the best part is you can distress and ink them any color to match your layout....also did I mention....super cheap too! The cardboard that comes in the pack is 7 x 7 inches and there are 6 in a pack....which means lots and lots of shutters for a fraction of the cost!
Woo Hoo! Happy Dance!
Here is the finished layout with the Corrugated Cardboard em! This layout is also using more of the beautiful "Spring In Bloom" and "Artistic Papers" from Donna's Salazar Designs!
This is a photo of my little Roxy, she is just Picture Perfect....youth! lol

So let's get started making those shutters! Here is what you will need:
Craft Knife

First measure and cut out a 1.25 inch x 4 inch piece of cardboard...*Hint* Be sure to look at the way the cardboard grooves go on the want the centers to look like shutters. :)

Next, measure and draw lines in pencil at .125, .25, .625, .75, inches.

Then using a sharp #11 craft knife, cut on the lines on both sections.

Last, but not least use your favorite Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx...I used "Honey" it gives a bit of color and yet shows the shabby part of the cardboard through.

Here is another closer view of the finished shutter on the layout....I added a heart cut at 1 inch, used a small punch for the edges, crimped and crinkled the heart, then added a small cream ribbon for the center. That's it!

I just love the "Shadow Flowers" and I punched out tiny flowers with left over scraps from the "Artistic Papers" It has little polka dots on, I tend to use every piece of scrap I
I don't journal as much as I should, so I wanted to add something on this layout. I used a quote from "Great Inspirational Quotes" It reads:

"A daughter is the happy memories
of the past,
the joyful moments
of the present,
and the hope & promise
of the future."
Author Unknown

I added:
In my eyes
you are....
Picture Perfect

I used Donn's Salazar's "Carnation Creations" to make my flowers and curled some and crimped the others. For the title, I used "Artistic Papers" and printed on my computer with Microsoft for Mac in purple ink.
