Blissful Day

This was a make and take that I did at a local crop. I made my own background by stamping the Sal-A-Bration set called Bliss. The tag is the rectangle sizzlet, with the Boho Blossoms punch, the bird on a branch punch ends the journaling. I've included both pages, then a photo of the two page spread

Faux Ceramic Beads

One of thhe SU Creative Crew challenge this month was to use Beads, Baubles, Trinkets, Chains, and Charms. Well I didn't have any so I had to get creative indeed! I made paper beads! I used some of my scraps of DSP and made my beads that dangle from my seam binding, Dyed Crocheted flower, and pearl.

My shabby heart is lovin' this Botanial Suite from SU! Be on the look out for a tutorial on my faux beads in the upcoming future ;)

Stamps: Nature Walk
Paper: C.Chip, Bashful blue, Night of navy, DSP
Ink: M.Mist, C.Chip
Accessories: Seam binding, crocheted flower, pearl, Crochet cotton

I've Been Adopted!

My SCS/Michigan Mingle friend Debra decided to adopt me this month! Since my upline no longer gets together to stamp, Debra sent me all the supplies and directions to make these two projects. Now the bracelet she sent me a photo of to help me along, the card no photo.... So I'm sitting there looking at all these pieces thinking to myself "what's this supposed to look like?" When all of sudden across the entire state of Michigan I swear I hear Debra's voice saying "look chickie I gave you all the supplies you need, you're more than capable of designing it, now go forth and create!" So I don't know if this is what Debra's original design looked like, but I used every single supply she sent me and didn't waste one single inch of anything!

{{{HUGS}}} Debra you're the best-est!
