Just For You

Hello Everyone! I would like to share with you a Pocket Tag Card that I created!  I was inspired by Bona - LiveLoveScrap on Youtube.  For the Pocket Card, I used some design paper from The Paper Studio - Tiny Pink Hearts that I found at Hobby Lobby. I backed it with some Georgia-Pacific White Card Stock to give it some strength. I added some white crocheted lace to the edge of the pocket that  I found at Hobby Lobby.  I also added a doily that I die cut  and embossed using Cheery Lynn Designs - DL 234 French Pastry Tiny Doily. I had a "Aha Moment" while cutting the doily out. LOL! Instead of using white card stock like I normally do, I cut it out of white printer paper, so it came out looking just like a store bought doily, but better, especially after I embossed it.  The heart ribbon is from Michael's. The tulle is from my stash.

The flower is handmade. I used some lace and tulle that I found at Joann's. I made the crocheted doily and the pearl flower center. I used $1 strands of glass pearls from Darice that I found at Michael's to make the pearl flower center. I threaded 9 - 4mm pearls onto a 32 gauge wire and then twisted the two wires together to form a circle. Then, I took one of the wires and threaded a 8mm pearl for the center. I brought the wire with the 8mm pearl to the back, going down on outer side of the pearl circle on the opposite side of where the wire originated from. The pearl center is held securely into place after I twisted the two wires again in the back.  I think they are the perfect size for handmade flowers and very easy to make.

 Here is a card of pearl centers that I made to give to some of my friends this Valentine's Day!
For the tag that fits in the pocket,  I used a sweet little girl from Hero Arts -  CL381 Sweet Wonderful You Clear Stamp Set. I stamped her on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored her with Alcohol Markers, and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The "Just For You" is from Stampin' Up - Label Love Stamp Set.  I added the other half of the doily with a rhinestone heart that I found in my stash.
Thank you for stopping by my blog! I always love hearing from you and appreciate all your comments!

Have a wonderful day!!

Valentine's Day Wishes For You!

Hello Everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I have posted a card or project on my blog. As some of you already know, my sweet little dog, Woody, passed away on December 22nd, after being very sick for over 2 weeks. The vet just couldn't find out what was wrong with him. The vet even contacted several of the top vet schools to see if any of the experts there knew what was going on with my little guy! My hubby and I rescued Woody 8 years ago and he blessed our lives with his unconditional love every day of that 8 years. We took Woody everywhere with us and people would always say that Woody was the happiest dog they had ever seen. I can't tell you how much my heart is broken and how much Woody is missed!  My hubby and I loved Woody so much!

Speaking of love, Valentine's Day is almost here, so I decided to make a heart box with some design papers from TPC Studio - Little Lovin' Collection. The heart box pattern is from Paper Wishes - Teresa's Fantastic Folded Cards and Boxes CD. The sweet image that I used is from C.C. Designs - Swiss Pixie Love Letter Lucy.  I used the digi version, which was printed on Georgia-Pacific White Card Stock that I found at Walmart.  I colored her with Alcohol Markers, and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I used a Clear Wink of Stella Pen to add a little sparkle to her dress. The flowers that I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little berries and the heart ribbon are from Michael's. The doily that I used is from Wilton.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day filled with lots of love!
