A card and... a paper clip idea!

Hello everyone. Here is a card I made with butterfly stencil. I traced the butterfly on foam and felt sheet and I cut it out with scissors. I used glitter glue around edges of butterfly:) and added chenille stem for middle of butterfly body and antenna.The solid paper used is Recollections and pattern paper is from the Yearbook paper pad. Felt, foam sheets, chenille stem , paperclips, puff ribbon and stencils was purchased at Dollar Tree store. Sparkle glitter glue is from Micheal's. Click any photo to enlarge it!

I used my hot glue gun and adhered a 50mm paperclip to back of butterflies. These can be used to clip to cards and as book page markers:) These can be made in butterflies, hearts, flowers etc. This is a great idea and it decorates your paper clips:) These are awesome! I hope, I inspired you to make some decorated paper clip. These are fun to make!

Basket of flowers!

Hello friends! I hope you week is starting off good and you are well. Here is a recycled project. The box I used for this project was a box filled with chocolate candy. This was a Christmas present from my friend. I keep the box after all the chocolate was gone and I adhered some pretty pattern paper to it:). This box was too nice to trash it. Don't you think so too? I used Mod Podge Gloss -Lustre to adhered paper to box and I painted the Mod Podge all over the pattern paper to give the paper a glossy shine:) I used gems, gold crafts wire, brass finished fasteners and puffy paint to embellish flowers and basket. I used pop dots to give the flowers and basket some dimension.


The pattern paper is from the Yearbook Paper pad. This paper is so pretty! The solid paper is Recollections card stock. I used Doodlecharms flower on page#91 and the basket is on page #116. flowers cut @ 2 inch and basket @ 2 7/8 inch. I used Design Studio so I could cut them to fit the box.


Here is the box before I decorated it and the top is after:) I love the outcome of this project! I just love it:)

Happy Sunday friends. I hope you all are enjoying your day. Here is more earrings I made out of ribbon. These earrings are made different then the ribbon rose earrings. I tried to make these earrings look more like a flowers not like the rose earrings here.


I used the i -rock tool by imaginisce to adhere the (bling) Glam rocks in center of flowers. This is my first time using this tool and I love it ;) I embossed the card with Cuttlebug (Best Friends) embossing folder. This set has (4) small embossing folder with it. To give the embossed bunch of flowers that white look I sanded it with a finger nail file:) I seen that idea on a blog but I can't remember where :(

Birthday Bash shape card!!

Hello Friends. I hope you all are having a great day. Here is two cards I made for my daughter girl friends for their Birthday this month. This Bunny shape card and Hoppy Birthday is on the Birthday Bash cartridge and is on page # 27 of handbook. I love this cartridge. My son gave this cartridge to me for my Birthday last month :)


The pattern paper is Miss Elizabeth's paper from Dollar Tree store. I bought it about 7 months ago. I don't think they sell it there any more. I haven't seen it lately. I'm so glad I bought the paper when I seen it. The bunny at the top looks like a quilt. I love that pattern paper! I embellished the bunny with pom poms, google eyes and ribbon ;)


I cut the Hoppy Birthday for the inside and I pen stitched with StarLightz Glitter Gel Pen. This card was very easy to make. This card is cute, cute, and cute :)
