Cherish, Honor, Adore

These are frames to go in my craft room. These are $4 frames from Roberts. I love this Tres Jolie paper from My Minds Eye. It goes great in my craft room. I can't get enough of pink and green. I made the words out of Quick Cutz Silouettes dyes. The flowers and flourishes are also Quick Cutz. I also used Frosted Lace Stickles and Pink Gems from Heidi Swapp. I painted the frames cream and used Tea Dye Distressed ink from Ranger on the edges of the frames.

I am going to purchase a staple gun soon and staple brown ribbon to the back of the frames so that the 3 hang as shown above but with about an inch or so in between each of them. And I am going to hang them from a knob from one of my favorite stores, Rod Works. When I get that all done, I will post it so you can all see what I am talking about.

Happy Stamping Everyone!

Happy Together Frame

So I have decided that I am taking a small break this month from my normal Stampin' Up! workshops. I have just been running around so crazy lately, and I am so tired, that I am not going to have a workshop this month.

The good news for me is that I can have some time to make stuff for me. I have been concentrating a lot lately on stuff for my craft room so I figured today I would make something for my living room/kitchen area. It's pretty much one big room.

I went to All My Memories tonight and found this beautiful paper from Daisy Dee. It was a paper pack and came with the reversable matching cardstock flowers. The thing that is great about these, is that they are stackable. And I still have paper left over if I wanted to make another frame or if I want to use it for some scrapbook pages!

Here is a list of supplies:
  1. $5 frame from Robert's Art's and Craft
  2. Black acrylic paint
  3. Patterned paper and cardstock flowers ~ Daisy Dee
  4. Giant Paper Clip ~ Bazzill Basics
  5. Giant Black & White Polka Dot Paper Clip ~ Bazzill Basics
  6. White Gem Brad ~ Making Memories
  7. Newspaper Flower ~ Junkitz
  8. Green and Cream Paper Flowers ~Prima
  9. Black Gem ~ Doodle Bug Designs
  10. Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware {bookplate and ribbon slide} ~ Stampin' Up!
  11. Large Corner Rounder ~ EK Success
  12. Lime Ice Stickes ~ Ranger
  13. Distress Ink Tea Dye ~ Ranger
  14. Black and Whit
  15. Polka Dot Ribbon ~ Offray
  16. Black Stazon Ink
  17. Happy Everything Stamp Set ~ Stampin' Up!
  18. Mod Podge
  19. Glue Dots

I will be putting in a picture of Thong and I in this and it will be on a shelf by pictures of us with our families from our wedding. And I am picking up wood letters this week that spell out FAMILY by all of this. I think I may use the Scarlett's Letter paper from Basic Grey for the the letters. I think it should match well with this frame.

Hope you all like this! Let me know what you think!

Happy Stamping Everyone!

I can't get enough of this new line of paper from My Minds Eye, Tres Jolie. I used it on another project that I will post soon. It goes great in my craft room! I have a couple more monogram letters to go still after this for my craft room.
I got the small green shelf from Taipan Trading Co. And you can probably recognize the Mother's Day present that I posted earlier this week. I finally found a home for my poster of Aubrey Hepburn too. I have a couple of other small things that will fit on this shelf once I give my mom her present. I just couldn't resist when I saw this shelf at the store. They also have a cream one. It was only $10. I am finally getting my craft room put together a little more. I still haven't taken the updated pictures like I promised but hopefully I can get to that soon.

Happy Stamping Everyone!

Hi, it's me again. So much for having some time again to keep my blog updated. I have had a little time but then my internet would go down. So this is what I was up to this week. I had a baby shower of a friend yesterday. I ended up not going with the original cards that I planned to make her and came up with this card on Thursday night. So I gave her a stack of thank yous so she could give them out and not have to make her own. She only has a month to go, so as you can imagine, probably the last thing she wants to do.

  6. Always Artichoke marker
