Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Vintage angel / christmas card!

Hi everyone on this cold Wednesday....Let me start by saying I am having a tough day, My car broke down, try to fix it in the rain...soak and wet, then called AAA since I could not get it to start..called my sister to take my daughter to preschool since she had to take her son any way...then sat there waiting for tow truck...about 30-40 mins later he finally arrives.STill soak and wet by the time he came...
..which this time it was not bad..I had alot more things I wanted to get down, but itsn't that always the way...that it never goes as planned..also we get a little extra $ and something always has to go wrong..oh well... anyway enough about I came home and finished my card that I made the other night, just haven't had time to post...

I used GS for the frames that I cut @ 5" then layered 2 times and used the inside cut....

I added ribbon thoughout it, added some flowers, corner punch and pearls...I also cut the corners of the green paper.

Inside reads: His presence moves across the earth, and touches hearts with love,
Then leaves the sweetest gift of all... the peace from up above.
May the wonderful peace of Christ Be yours, at Christmas and always!

I used this saying before...but I love it...hope you love it too. Thanks for stopping by and to all that inspires me!

Hi everyone on this Terrific Thursday! Let me start off by saying that I loved putting this one together.....I tried to make it beachy yet a rustic feel...hope you like!

I used different papers, some are DCWV Summer pack (I think from 2 years ago)...I also used Bazzill Basics paper (Guacamole) for the whole background...I used some scraps too, so not sure where they came here goes.

I used AE to cut the frame using the fit to page feature...I think it was 8 1/2"

I used the inner piece as the background..and then layered the frame on top with pop dots to make it more 3d. I also used siccors around the edges and then inked it.

The swirl was also cut with AE cart at 6" and inked.

I used LAB for the bamboo cut @ 5 3/4", the pelican cut @ 2 1/4", and the sun cut @ 2"...I inked them all except the pelican I added a pink eye too it.Layered it about 3 times.

I used George cart for the hearts (2) cut @ 2 1/4"..also inked. added some thread..(really can't remember what this is called but I call it thread)
