Love Sweet Love


Hello everyone! Today I'm playing along with this weeks Simon Says "Anything Goes" Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. I created this CAS card using patterned paper and a "Love Sweet Love" tag from 7Gypsies Harmony Collection. I cut out the flower journaling card from the Pearls & Lace patterned paper , trimmed the top part off of the "Love Sweet Love" tag, and attached it towards the top with some black thread. After I had the stitching done I adhered the whole panel to my ivory card front. 

I wanted to add a little more dimension and detail to this card so I added a bunch of different sized ivory pearls to the flowers center. Thanks for visiting!

We'll Be Friends


Hello everyone! Today I'm playing along with this weeks Simon Says "Food And/Or Drink" Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. For this card, I used some images from Canvas Corp's Mixology collection. I used the fun little sentiment image that reads "We'll Be Friends Til We're Old & Senile......Then We'll Be New Friends!" from the Happy Hour Sayings paper as my focal image. I added some yellow & ivory striped paper and a square piece of burlap with black stitching under my focal image for some texture. 

I tied and added a white bow to the left side of my sentiment and added a strip of lemon patterned paper to the right side of my card to finish it off. Thanks for visiting!

Baby Girl Canvas Album


Hello everyone! Last Tuesday I shared the baby girl letterbox tray I created for Canvas Corps newest release called Sugar & Spice. Today I'm sharing the second project I created for the release, which is this cute little mini canvas album. I used the Sugar & Spice Baby Girl Fabric Panel that matches the paper collection to create my album cover. The natural canvas and black art is the perfect surface for adding ink, paint, mist, fabric markers and more. I kept my album cover pretty simple and just added some pick stitching around the edges and added a pink canvas flower to the bottom right that I created with some mini canvas rounds. I also created a few matching pages for the inside of my little mini album with the Sugar & Spice Mix & Match Pad. With 16 different papers, fabrics and prints the mix & match pads give you lots to choose from and they are very versatile. You can check out all the different mix and match pads in the shop HERE

I left a spot for photos to be added on each page and added a few different baby girl quotes and embellishments to each photo spot.

I fussy cut different images from the sampler paper and patterned papers to make fun little embellishments. I also added tiny charms to my photo spots with pieces of waxed cord.

Last week the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew shared 10 creative ways to use Canvas Corp's fabrics over at The Creative Studio. If you think fabric is just for sewing, think again. Check out all the creative ways you can use all the different 12″x 12″ and 13″x 17” fabric panels HERE. Thanks for visiting!

Baby Girl Themed Letterbox Painters Tray


Hello everyone! Last week I shared a sneak peek of this Letterbox Painters Tray I created for Canvas Corp's Sugar & Spice release. I had so much fun creating this! Today I will be sharing a few close up photos along with a few details about my painters tray. Each spot on the tray is a perfect place to add just a touch of paper, buttons, ribbon, pins, flowers, etc.

The mix and match pad gives you a wide range of papers, fabric, printed fabric and more to choose from. I cut out pieces from the sampler and colored them with some colored markers. The sampler paper has plenty of words, sayings and letters to say what you want to say to the little one.

The mini clothespins are just the right size for the little openings in the tray. They add lots of dimension and are perfect for clipping on all those extra little touches.

To add more dimension to my painters tray I created some canvas flowers with Canvas Corps Mini Round Canvas shapes. I cut the two round canvas shapes into spirals and then rolled them up to create flowers. After I had them rolled up I misted and watercolored them to match the patterned paper. See photo below. 

You can leave some of the boxes with simple little details while others you can add a bunch stamping or embellishments. I hope you enjoyed my painters tray today! I will be back in a day or two to share the baby girl mini album I created with this collection for the Sugar & Spice release.
