Best Wishes

Hello thanks for peeking in, before I tell you about my card I have the winner of the Red Seam Binding Ribbon, I was supposed to post this on Friday but the kids were off school and my hands were full, so I do apologize for this.

The winner is Sandy Dehon, my daughter Priscilla pulled out the name the old fashioned way! Sandy please contact me with your address so I can get this in the mail to you!

My card was made using the Stamped image from In2Stamps Flower Girl, I decided on Blue colors on this one, I colored my image with Copic Markers. I went overboard with the flowers and the pretty pearl and glass garland, love this stuff!

My sentiment is an old stamp I don't remember by who, lost the packaging.

Some pretty flat pearls and lots of glitter!!

Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comments!!

January Journal

Hello thanks for peeking in, I always like to carry or have a Journal with me in case I want to remind myself of special events for that Month, or just to write something fun that's going on.

Well I altered this cute note pad, I removed the top layer of the Journal and did one myself with the theme of our current month.

So for January I think its Winter, at least for most parts of the USA. In my part of the world its as Sunny as can be, no winter yet!

I went with this cute Magnolia image, gotta love Edwin and Tilda!!

I colored my image with Copic Markers, remember last week I had to do a stop at my local Art Supply store? Well it was to pick up some warm tone Ink refills I use these quite a lot!

Lots of pictures of different angles of this cute mini note book!

My papers are from Maja Design, I just love the pretty Blues with the soft snowflakes, perfect for any Winter project! This is the back of the Journal, left if kind of plain so I could appreciate the papers, just the pretty snow flake punch from Martha Stewart.

The January sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps, the Calendar stamp, it comes with all the months of the year! My tag is from Maja Design too, I added a cute eyelet, some twine and a cute charm!

I hope you enjoyed my project and go ahead and give it a try, I am currently working on my February Journal, don't miss out on it!!

Thank you for your sweet comments!!

This is Luscious Linda, I colored my image with Copic Markers, really fun to color with lots of details to pay attention to. My sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps, I really like these Love Letter Seals Circle sentiments so fun to use.

My flowers have been treated with lots of glitter and these papers I have had for a long time, it feels good to be using them.

Thank you for your sweet comments, I am going to my local Art Supply store can you believe it I need to get me some Copic Ink Refills, and since I am already there why not get me a few markers I am missing. I love having this store so close by and their prices on the Sketch Markers is unbelievable =)!!

Butterfly Hanglar Girl

Hello and thanks for peeking in, I haven't share anything with you for a few days. Everything is ok here at home just have been busy.

So I have a card to share with you, this image is from Hanglar Stanglar. I got it a few months ago in a kit I ordered. I colored my image with Distress Inks. It is a really large image, my card measures 6x6 and its almost that large.

I added flowers to the corners and I showered them with glitter, by the way I get my flowers from I am Roses.

The butterfly button I made it myself with my easy to follow tutorial, check it out HERE. My ribbon is Seam binding, no distressing on this one,used it straight from the spool.

Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments!!

Chipboard Button Tutorial

Hello friends, Happy Friday to you! Like I promised I have the chipboard button tutorial ready for you, lots of pictures so be prepared!!

I always seem to just but anything I can get my hands on, and this case it was a bunch of chipboard shapes that I know I will not be using them all, at least with the colors these come in and they look so plain!

You will need Distress Paint in different colors to suit your needs, button hole punch (I love this one because both holes get punched at once), Glass finish

I remove the top thin layer of colored paper from the Chip board shape and throw this out.

Next I punch the holes on all of them, I like to mass produce, that way I don't have to be taking my supplies out every time I need a button!

My next step, I give it a nice coat of the distress paint, it looks kind of bumpy but that's ok, don't throw them out this is normal you will see why. (Note: on some cases a bit on the side will begin to curl up, just dab a bit of glue and glue it down)

Once dry I give it a good coat of the glass finish, let that one dry and then give it another one, do you notice on my picture no more bumps? The glass finish took care of this. I have done two different kinds of coats, same white fence distress paint just different glass finish. On the left is Sepia and on the right Clear. I just wanted you to see the difference.

All the chipboard buttons ready to use, if you have some Chipboard shapes that you don't know what to do with them, try this you will love the shabby look!!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, Have a good day and thanks for visiting!!
