I picked up these really cool Bazzill, chipboard tags at my lss. I used so saffron craft ink and clear ep to set it. I used my cricut to cut out the letters. I also got a little bag of primas.......I know " Like I need more." But I found these perfect little flowers in there. :)
I used my Flourishes stamps by Rhonna Farrer, (love them!) and the whole thing just came together. I love doing these frames. I actually stained 3 at once. So they'd be ready to go when I am.
These are a gift for a special person and I hope she loves them!
This is the inside of the book. It looks pretty on the inside too! I used stickers from the kit and Rhonna Farrer, Flourishes stamps by Autumn Leaves. The big squares are for journaling or pictures. Once you have it, these are fun and easy!
This one is just pretty on the outside. LOL But once i have time to complete it, it will shine too!

I used my fave colours which are rose red and regal rose. I was lucky and had a scrap of vanilla paper. (I need more) I think this card used all of my favorite things, colours, brads, pretty ribbon, and paisley!
I love the layout too. Thanks to Rox who posts these challenges every week! Well, I am off to play some more!
I used my new Sell-a-bration set. I cut out the flowers and using my aqua painter coloured it in in rose red ink. I used a Prima and rhinestone for the centers.
I curled the flower around my paper piercer and then popped it up on pop dots.
I can't wait to play some more tomorrow. :)

Any way, I have been using my beautiful Wild Asparagus papers. (sniffle, sniffle) Have I mentioned I am a hoarder? LOL (also an understatement, ask Mike)
This paper looks blue but it actually matched perfectly to vintage violet. It's great when stuff matches. I used my Rhonna Farrer flourish stamps too. I use them a lot.
I ran all the twill through my little xyron sticker maker. It adheres the binding so well. Of course I used primas. (everybody is Prima worthy at Christmas) I also used my little crystal brads. So cute.
I was also playing with my new.......Curvey Cutter by EK success. So easy and fun, I have the circle and square too. (rolls eyes)
It is also the new sellabration set, I love those verses!
Here is number 2. Again using Wild Asparagus paper. (yummy) Primas, crystal brads and my new oval cutter. I used my cricut for the letters. I need a couple of new font's. (Santa take the hint)
Another Wild Asparagus paper.......did i say i love this paper? The same but different. If I had had more time........I would have stamped more but I wanted them simple but pretty. I bought a stack of composition books and shadow frames yesterday. Got to love the dollar store.

I used my cricut to cut out the letter's, one in a chatterbox paper the other cranberry crisp. My fave color of the moment. I used the other side of the double sided paper and stamped print pattern on it in Olive. I used my Autumn Leaves flourishes in cranberry ep by Ranger.
I faux stitched around each little diamond. Of course i had to use a Prima. Which had some Crystal Effects applies and then dazzling diamonds dumped on top. The center is a crystal brad.
At the end I desided to dress up the frame too! So I used versa mark and the flourishes with the cranberry ep. Then outlined the flourishes with a white gel pen. To make them stand out!
Pretty good for a dollar store frame.

I was in at my LSS and the owner made me buy one. Well... you all know my arm doesn't need a whole lot of twisting. Besides it was only 1.99 so highly affordable.
It is of course an edge distresser.....well that's what's written on it! It is so cool, i have always used my sissors but this is so much easier and does a far better job. Hopefully my sissors will last longer too.
This really is a cool tool and one no one should be without! In my opinion! So what are you waiting for.......... go get one.
I also have been thinking alot on how to alter primas......so be on the look out for altered primas.
Here I dipped it in versa mark then covered it with silver ep and heat set it! It made a beautiful center to the large snowflake.
This is the sketch challenge layout 101. I love this layout ...there is a pocket on the inside of the card for a note, gift card or even cash!
I just think snowflakes are so perfect for right now. It's coming down like crazy here.
This is another version, I can't stop making these. They are so cute! If i could change this I would have embossed the sentiment in silver instead of craft white!
I love the silver and blue together.
This is the last one in this color........:) I used stippling and DTP I also distressed the paper edges. I like this card alot as well. I really wish i could stamp more. It seems i have been so busy with so many things lately. But I need to exercise this creativity , so i think everything else can wait....for now!
