Hello there! Wow...excuse my disappearance :). Things have been so busy with the school year reaching its end. I'm happy to report that my most favorite little person is officially out of school and I'll get to enjoy time with her all day every day for the next couple of months.
My projects today were created for Crate Paper and you can read more about them HERE. I have used the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection and created a gift bag and card. I began with a Sizzix Brenda Walton Movers & Shapers Sweet Treat Bag die. After die cutting the bag from some Confetti patterned paper, the rest was a snap.
I dressed up my gift bag using Confetti cardstock stickers, chipboard, wood shapes, and ephemera.
And I have been itching to use the American Crafts WOW! glitter that coordinates so perfectly with the Confetti collection, so I used a bit of the creamy tinsel glitter on the cake and the shabby aqua glitter on my wood star and then below on my card.
I added a bit of the aqua glitter to the leaves on this pretty little chipboard flower bouquet...just might be my new favorite color of glitter :).
And one more before I go. This was created for Emma's Paperie and is based on the May sketch found there.
See that pretty, pink, shabby paper in the background, with the little roses? It's a favorite of mine....from Webster's Pages, and I have myself a nice stash of it. Don't want to ever run out of it :).
A complete supply list for this card can be found HERE at Emma's Paperie.
Today is beautiful here...even with the power outage :), loving the puffy clouds that pile up in the afternoon, loving good news from my mom...love her so very much, happy that my sweet Texas loved ones are still ok and think of them always, missing my big brothers and their families, but happy that we are connected through out hearts, loving the warmth that makes the cactus blossoms come to life this time of year, and so grateful for my sweet, hard-working husband, who can fix anything and everything, make my little girl's day each and every day, and above all, tolerate me and my never ending quirks :).
Enjoy your day!
