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.

Relax/ birthday card!

Hello everyone...I made this card for my sister..her birthday is coming up in December ...I also did this for the mojo monday blog is the link or you can click on the title Relax and it will take you too it...

The card is made from scraps...blues, and light purple...never used this color together before but it works...and I love how this turned out...looks better in person..everything does, doesn't it?

Anyway...the only cricut I used on this was the accent that I doodled RELAX is from storybook cart cut @ 1 3/4" and layered about 3 times..

The stamp is from a friend on the cricut board...she sent me these awhile thank you...I colored the background with a light peach..showing up yellow...

I added sticker pearls...get at michaels...also plastic flowers by Making memories vintage for .34cents at Michaels....I added ribbon, and glitter glue to the bubbles and then added more pearls to look like bubbles..the water and bubbles were suppose to be blue but the glitter glue and the ink (which was dry) turned the bubbles puple...oh well...I still love it...

The inside says: The dishes will still be in the sink,

The laundry piled up high, but just remember it will all be there tomorrow! So take time for yourself and enjoy your day!

I'm thinking of putting a gift card for a massage and add some soft socks, some bath salts and I'm not sure what else...but along that theme..Thanks for looking.

Hello kitty vinyl with cardstock stickers!

Hello everyone...My dd who is 4 ,requested that I make her Hello Kitty stickers to put on her door of her since I have done tinkerbell like this before for her toybox..I thought why not!

What I did was cut the base of the hello kitty characters and accents(strawberry, present, butterfly and cherries) out of vinyl using the HK cart....

I got this vinyl at Lowe's for $1.00 last year...they are wall pops...I then cut the layers out of cardstock...glued them onto the vinyl with elmer's craftbond extra strength glue stick...goes on blue and then dries clear....this is what I used..don't know if anything else will stick to the vinyl...

I then added glitter to all of them...another request by my dd...she wanted them to sparkle...I let dry and put them on her huh? She just loves them...and when she gets tired of those..I will just tear down and start over..but better then buying the stickers in the store..her grammy came over today and saw them...she loved them too..and my dd could not wait to show them off..Well thanks for listening to rambling and thanks for stopping by...leave some love.
