For the background, I gesso'd a piece of white cardstock, then water colored it with a variety of gelatos. Finally, it was dry embossed with an Anna Griffin folder. I really like how it turned out.

Felt Flower Garden Canvas

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing my latest Craftwell project--an inspiring canvas that will be wonderful anywhere it is placed. This wall art makes a lovely home décor piece and would be great for a dorm room or craft space too!
Once again, I used the SNAP Machine, which is fast becoming my new favorite crafting tool. This little guy works just like the original Cut'n'Boss Electric Embosser and Die Cutter, only it's smaller and it packs a whole lotta punch! No manual labor here--just happy, hands-free electronic embossing and die cutting. What could be better?
I first cut all my felt pieces, then arranged them onto a 10x10" stretched canvas covered with a wood grain patterned paper. The large flowers each have a clear sentiment sticker placed in the center. The smaller flowers have button centers with hemp string tied into double bows.
I wanted to experiment with the Teresa Collins Honeycomb Project Die and see if it would work as a chicken wire-type fence for my scene....I think it was a success! I cut thin cardboard (cereal/snack box) material with the Honeycomb Die 3 times, then did the same with a coordinating pattern paper. I then covered each piece of cut cardboard with a piece of cut pattern paper, creating a bit more dimension and interest. Finally, I placed along the bottom portion of the canvas to form my chicken wire fence for my inspirational flower garden!
And that's all for me, folks! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today! I've enjoyed sharing my project with you and I hope you've been inspired in some way to make a fabulous creation of your own with awesome Craftwell products! Until next time, many blessings and happy crafting!

Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop!

Hello there! It's time for the RRR June Blog Hop and if you're already hopping, then you should be arriving to me from KATHY'S amazing blog! If not, head over to the RRR Blog to start the hop!
We are showcasing projects using the June Ribbon Club Assortment and what a lovely assortment it is! A splendid mix of pink and purple ribbons sure to add beauty to your creations. Feast your eyes....
Isn't it gorgeous? I just love it! I made a few cards featuring these super pretty ribbons and here they are...
They came together quickly and easily and all I needed was a few cute stickers to accent the ribbon strips since they steal the show! 
Every one of these ribbons are so fabulous. I love how each of the different colors, patterns and styles coordinate perfectly together. There are so many possibilities for these beauties--I practically did nothing other than gather them into strips and they look amazing on my cards! Just imagine all the things you could do with them! :) 
Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my cards with you! I hope you like them and feel inspired to create something pretty with ribbons today! The next stop on the hop is SHEILA! Have a great day and happy hopping!

See The World Altered Timepiece

Hello friends! I'm up on the Simple Stories blog today sharing my latest altered/home décor project with you! With the warmer months upon us, it's time for all the fun and adventure of travel! Whether it be by plane, train or automobile, I love to travel anywhere and anytime the opportunity arises. Travel Notes is the perfect way to celebrate and preserve all your traveling adventures and experiences. This collection is your passport to creativity! And away we go!
I started with an antique-style metal clock frame and covered the inside and back walls with See The World. The inside and front were decorated using a variety of stickers, chipboard pieces and die cuts, all from the Travel Notes collection. I wanted to capture the essence of life in motion within this timepiece. The car and scooter buzzing by, the plane flying above head and all the little travel accents make me want to pack a bag and take off to anywhere!
Does a hot air balloon ride suit your fancy? Are you a road trip lover? How about globetrotting aboard a jet plane to see all the wonders of the world? Whatever your pleasure, you'll find your ticket to paradise right here!
And the buck stops here! Thanks so much for stopping by today and allowing me to share my altered clock with you. I hope you've been inspired to create something marvelous with the Travel Notes collection today! Until next time, happy trails!

Glitter Sparkle Shine Blog Co-Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Paper House Productions-Day 3!

Hello! Welcome to Day 3 of the Sparkle Co-Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Paper House Productions! Be sure to visit each company blog to see the sparkling inspiration created by 2 fabulous design teams every day this week! There are 6 awesome prize packages up for grabs too! All details HERE!
For my project, I decorated 2 metal envelopes with A Reason To Smile 12" Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper, Prisms 12" Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper, Color Washed Cardstock Multi Pack and Butterflies Faux Enamel Sticker all from Paper House along with some fantastic Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®! Each envelope is 3 dimensional so they have lots of possibilities. The large is perfect for housing even a very bulky handmade card and the small is great for a gift card of any kind. They are sure to bring a little extra sparkle to anyone's day!
The E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser was used to securely adhere the patterned papers to envelope base. A bit more dimension was added to the stickers using both 3D Foam Squares, White, Regular size and 3D Foam Squares, White, Small size. Using the HomeHobby by 3L® Duel Tip Glue Pen, a few tangerine mini sequins and a Swarvorski crystal to accent one of the butterflies. I love how all the elements radiant such a bright and positive message reminding us to always sparkle!
I had a super fun time trying out the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit on my large envelope. With it, I created a one-of-a-kind gold foiled postage stamp that is fit for royalty! And I discovered my new favorite way to adhere sequins to my craft projects, Adhesive Dots Micro! They are just the right size and so easy to place. The best part, no waiting for them to set and dry...instant gratification every time!
