Sweet Esther

Hello everyone! All That Scraps has a new challenge today... Paper Piecing!! I don't do this often, mainly because I tend to not pick the right paper to use. Well here's my take on it this time...
Using the newly released Sweet November Esther, this little tag can be used for any occasion. She's colored with Copics and dressed with Basic Grey's Hello Luscious. Sizzix tag diecut is a pink cardstock from DCWV, and sentiment is from Hero Arts Friendship Message set.

Stop over at the ATS Challenge blog to see more inspiration from the team. You'll have two weeks to link up and a chance at winning 3 CC Design Rubber Stamps!! You must follow the simple rules to be eligible. While you're there, check out the ATS blog to see all the new release for the month. Plenty of cuteness to see!

Thanks for stopping by...
Have a fantastic week! ;D

Happy {heart} Day!

Hi Everyone! Hope your week is off to a good start. Today I'm sharing this sweet little gal from Whimsie Doodles, and the best thing is... she's FREE!

You can download her right here from the Whimsie Doodles store. Followed the newest Sweet Sunday Sketch using paper from Basic Grey's Kissing Booth. Colored the cutie with Copics, added some sparkles with Stickles and Sakura Clear Star pen. The red heart is hand cut and the hanging heart charm is actually a Tiny Tag from PaperTrey Ink.

Stop by the Whimsie Doodles blog to see more amazing projects from the Diva team! There's alot of new stuff at the store... perfect for Valentine's Day! There's a couple days left to join the current challenge, just check out all the details here. 
Thanks Whimsie Doodles for having me as Guest Artist for January. 

That's it for me today...
Have a great day! ;D

Valentine tags

Happy Saturday! I'm popping in today to share the valentine tags I made with the cute Whimisie Doodles images.
The image is part of a cool set of 8 images plus sentiments, and two print sheets to make gift tags! This tag was pretty simple and quick to make. Just print, color, and cut out the gift tags. Then adhere it onto a tag... mine is handmade... just a 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 rectangle, border punch one end, and cut out the corners on the other, punch a whole and add your ribbons! Found a free digi heart banner background that I printed out and wrapped it around the candy bar. Then just add your finished tag!

Here's a pic of another tag...
aren't they fun and cute? There's eight different ones to choose from, just click here to see them at the Whimsie Doodles Store.

That's it for me today. Hoping to get a little bit more crafting done this weekend!

Thanks for stopping by...
have a wonderful day! ;D

Valentine Treats

Hi everyone! It's been a while since my last post. I've had a change in my work schedule, so less time for me to craft! {very sad} :(  I finally got to finish my ATS Challenge reminder project...

Isn't he cute? Cupid Mickey is from the ATS December release, and you can find him at the ATS store! Here are a couple of other views of the treat box...
It can hold a few treats inside, and the black flap tucks into the back of the box. The front has a Tiny Tag from Papertrey Ink with a hand written message. Found  a piece of scrap for the backside to hold down the flap.

Head over to the All That Scraps Challenge blog to see more amazing creations. You have another week to link up and play along. There's a small change in the rules, so be sure to check out the details here. The prize for this challenge is THREE CC Designs Rubber Stamps!!

Now, I have something to share with you all! Do you have trouble threading twine through tiny holes? It was so frustrating for me...  keep having to cut off the frayed tip... needles with eyes that are too big... took FOREVER to get it through!! I finally did a search online for some help... and guess what I found...
a floss threader! it's the perfect tool to thread twine (or any string) through the tiniest hole!! so smooth and simple! can't wait to use it for buttons!!

Thanks for stopping by...
have a wonderful day! ;D
