Renees Color Challenge Pink Green and Navy

I used coordinating papers in these colors and added tulle, a button and some twine. The sentiment and daisy cut is from My Creative Time and the tulips are from Provo Craft Cuttlekids dies. I added lots of pop dots, pearls and diamond glaze for dimension.

April Showers bring May Flowers and Pixie Sticks!

Lots of elements in this fun oversized card. I used Provo Craft Cricut cartridge Walk in My Garden for the clay pot and embossed it with a star border. The clouds and raindrops are from the cartridge Pooh and Friends. For the daisies, I used My Creative time dies stitched circle and scallop. For the tulips I used the new Easter Egg die and inked the edges to form the petals. The faces are Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kid Face Assortment. The stems are pixie sticks. Enjoy.

First Centerpiece of 12 for Luau Party

Assemble the supplies.
Cut the Flowers and leaves
Cover the stakes and wires in floral tape
I made a loop at the ends of the wires so it was easy to hot glue the flower onto the stem.
On the top of the stakeI looped 2 ends of the wire so it looks like a propeller. That gave stability to the flower that is glued on the top.
The large flower was cut at 4" and the little ones at 2".
I stuck the flower foam cube into the fishbowl and shoved cellophane in to cover it up.
It looks very real in person.

First attempt at Hibiscus Flowers

From the Cricut Cartridge Giant Flowers. The stamens gave me a problem and I upped the size to see if that helped. The orange flower in the upper right has the larger stamen so I was able to get all the parts to show but not sure it is necessary for a good effect. In the meantime, I also purchased some ready made stamens and will see what effect I get with those.You can see how I was experimenting with petal placement. These are getting ready for centerpieces where I will need 70 or so of them.

I Dig You - Happy Valentines Day

The little shovel is from Life's a Beach. I saw this in the recent issue of Papercrafts and this is my interpretation.

I gave these to my bowling team and they loved them.

Click your heels 3 times and say I want to eat chocolate...

Challenge to use Sophie or a Flower. It seems my Sophie cartridge took a little vacation that I had forgotten about. Hmmmm but I have many cartridge options when it comes to flowers. I used Princess Party for the shoes and Flower Shoppe for the flowers. I filled the shoes with Valentine treats. The paper is DCWV smooth red and pink and the flowers were inked with silver. The polka dot ribbon at the heel is from my stash and my favorite ribbon Offray.

BEE HAPPY Scrapbook Layout Page

For this 12 X 12 page I used the Cricut Cartridge Sentimentals for both the bees and the phrase. The bees were cut at 1 1/2", 2" and 3" and the phrase is 3". I used My Creative Time dies for the flowers and stickled them with gold. The papers are from my stash and include black and white pin dot, yellow and white gingham and solit black and yellow. I used the black and white twine and the stamp that says Be the Best you can be fit the page nicely. It is also from My Creative Time Football Phrases Stamp set.

Happy 35th Valentine Anniversary to our Bffs

Our best friends were married on Feb 12th - 35 years ago. On their 25th wedding anniversary, their first granddaughter was born ON THE DAY!!! So each year we cheer them as well as celebrate the birthday for Lisa Marie who is now 10. I wanted to make them something special to remember their day. Her kitchen is done in green and purple grapes so this wreath will find a nice spot up there.

I cut little hearts from Flower Shoppe and used silk leaves and flowers as well as spanish moss.
