Sweet Encouragement

Happy Sunday, sweet friends! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, which fills me with warm fuzzies. Dreams do come true. ♥︎

Just as this adventure begins, sadly my DT term with Wycinanka is reaching its end. I wish all the best to the new team they will recruit! What an incredible experience it has been! It is an honor to design for such an inspiring company, with an owner even more wonderful than the goodies he creates. Every day with them was a blessing and I am grateful for the opportunity bestowed upon me. ♥︎

Today I have an encouragement card to share, blossoming in hope for a college student battling cancer for the second time. Emma's kindness and courage inspire me every day. ♥︎
Wild Orchid Crafts and Wycinanka products deliver beauty beyond measure. ♥︎ The lovely Wycinanka Blueberry Swirls Frame was turned into a trellis of sorts, where stunning WOC blossoms (and hope) abound. This Hot Air Balloon is one of my all-time favorite chippies and it serves as the perfect avenue to carry my prayers to Emma.
Gorgeous pink and white Autumn Blossoms and Babies Breath ruffle atop lovely WOC Seam Binding. A Bead Berry Spray Cluster and sweet two-tone leaves are nestled within.
Smaller clusters of lovely flowers accent my frame, with touches of pink sprinkled throughout. My chippies have been sponged with white acrylic paint.
Self-adhesive Pearls accent my hot air balloon for a touch of elegance, while a Heart Pearl Bead adorns the delicate garden frame background.
Rose Organza Trim (small) lines the bottom of my card and I have trimmed my LDRS Creative sentiment with Net Lace. The beautiful LemonCraft papers are a combination of patterns from Tiny Miracles and Just Love Me. Their papers are so dreamy! The base and elegant background are Sue Wilson's Delicate Garden. I hope this brings a smile to her heart of gold. ♥️

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥︎

Special Friend

Happy Wednesday, sparkly friends! I'm fluttering in with the start of a new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund! The theme is always Anything Goes and the winner will receive a generous gift certificate to the store.♥️

I created a card for a treasured friend, showcasing some newer additions to the store from Wild Orchid Crafts, Wycinanka, and Pion Design. So many dreamy product lines.♥️
My friend is everything beautiful with a heart of pure gold and I want to remind her how special she is to me.♥️The gorgeous papers are from Pion Design's Where the Roses Grow, including the stunning vintage lady. She is centered within Wycinanka's lovely Charming Oval Frame, which I covered in crackle paste.
I'm ecstatic that Kelly and Karen are now offering Wild Orchid Crafts flowers! The sweet arrangements throughout my card consist of English Roses, Chrysanthemums, Plum Roses, Vintage Roses, Cherry BlossomsMiniature Sweetheart Blossoms, and Bead Berry Spray Cluster.
Sunflower Pearl Lace beautifully ruffles along the bottom, which I paired with crinkle ribbon from DL.Art's Coffeehouse Bundle 3. The stunning die cut frame atop my card is Sue Wilson's Delicate Garden. Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourishes frolic within the flowers. 

I hope she enjoys this little gift as much as I enjoyed creating it for her. Be sure to check out the delightful inspiration from my teamies and play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to 7 Kids! Thank you for visiting and have a sparkly day.♥️

Valentine Gift Packaging

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week! Today begins a new challenge at Deep Ocean, which is all things Hearts!♥️ One of my Wycinanka tasks is to create gift packaging for Valentine's Day, which is perfect for this challenge.

To hold a little gift of love, I prettied up a fun Wycinanka Pyramid Box inside and out.♥️
And now for a peek inside...
For my lovey-dovey box, I chose papers from LemonCraft's House of Roses and gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.♥️
Since it is to be handled, I kept the exterior fairly simple with just a few touches of sweetness. A Wycinanka wreath is adorned with a two-tone miniature sweetheart blossom and tucked beneath a pretty wild rose. The heart trim from Live & Love Crafts is one of my favorites... I couldn't resist wrapping up the box with love.♥️
The gorgeous wreath inside has darling hearts along it, although I unintentionally covered up many of them. The I Love You chippie is nestled within to deliver my heartfelt greeting. Along the corners and behind the flowers are tiny hearts and butterflies

A little present will be tucked inside, but I wanted it decorated to also be a gift in and of itself. Be sure to check out the inspirations from my fabulous teamies! Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly day.♥️

Anniversary Love and Wild Orchid Crafts DT!

Hello, sweet friends! I am excited beyond belief to share that I am one of the new Design Team members for Wild Orchid Crafts! My love for this company is no secret, as their products have blossomed all over my work for several years. My teamies are exceptionally talented and it is an honor to design alongside them. ♥️
Color me sparkly... I still cannot believe it. ♥️
To celebrate, I made a card for my parents 54th anniversary pairing Wycinanka chippies with new and old Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The pretty pink flowers blend in a bit in this picture, but stand out beautifully in person. The gorgeous papers are from LemonCraft's Heart Painted collection, a beautiful gift from a treasured friend. The lovely Wycinanka Charming frame was covered in crackle paste, as was their sweet birdhouse.

Love is from the Mr. & Mrs. Ornament, while the darling garland on top is also from the same collection. Hugging the 40mm Trellis Rose are pink Babies Breath, which is my first time using WOC fabric flowers. They are stunning! Hip Rosebuds, Open Roses, and Mini Sweetheart Blossoms are sprinkled throughout.
The precious birdies are Memory Box Resting Birds. My love-dovey foliage is a combination of Magnolia Heart Swirls and Impression Obsession Heart Stems. The pretty butterfly is a Sue Wilson die. The Sweet Love crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art's Valentine Bundle and the lace is from Live & Love Crafts. So many gorgeous products to celebrate a lifetime of love. ♥️

Lovely challenges entered:
 *DL.Art Thankful Thursday~ Anything Goes
 *Scrapy Land~ Anything Goes (I used Impression Obsession, Magnolia, Memory Box, and Sue Wilson dies)

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥️

Sweet Love (and a new mission)

Happy New Year, sweet friends! I hope your 2017 is filled with good health and dreams come true.♥️It's time for new challenges at 7 Kids College Fund (Anything Goes with the option of Valentine) and Deep Ocean (Anything New)! There are generous prizes to be won at both, so I hope you'll play along with us! Naturally I've used a plethora of Wycinanka chippies for the occasion.

My project is another tip-toe into shabby scrapbooking! I love this crafty outlet and I am eager to grow in it. The purpose of this scrapbook page kicks off something new I am doing this year, which I will explain just below.
This project begins an expansion of my mission to spread love to those in dire need. Scrapbooking is innately beautiful in the fact that it preserves sweet memories created throughout life. For most of my terminally ill little friends I adore and support, their lives are far too short... leaving their heartbroken parents clinging to the precious few months or years of memories made. I am designing scrapbooks this year for parents of children battling diseases for which there is no cure. It is hard on my heart, as I love them so deeply... but with each carefully chosen detail, I say another prayer for the miracles that are desperately needed.

This is my first page of Ella (photos taken by Crush Photography), the sweetest ray of sunshine that I fell in love with many moons ago.♥️She is 4 years old and battles every day. We nearly lost her last year, but God granted grace. He has a purpose for her and we will forever believe for her miracle. Her mom has the gentlest, most loving heart and I am blessed to know her.
I used a heap of new goodies to celebrate the sweetness that is Ella! The gorgeous papers are from Pion Design's Where the Roses Grow, which I scooped up the moment they arrived at 7 Kids. They are dreamy and perfect for such a princess. All of the flowers are from my beloved Wild Orchid Crafts (coming soon to 7 Kids!), of which I cannot get enough. Ella is filled with so much love that even the leaves are turning pink.

Lace Flower Netting provides soft detailing along the bottom. My central focal point is comprised of three beautiful Wycinanka chippies: The large Elegance frame is one of my favorites, which I have filled in with iridescent beads for a touch of whimsy. The smaller heart frame is one of Wycinanka's newest offerings, which is embossed with Shabby Pink Frantage.
The last part of the central trio is the stunning lace heart... it truly makes my heart flutter as it delicately flourishes in natural beauty. Amidst the Butterfly Tassel trim (currently sold out) on top, the page opens up in floral delight, encouraging Ella and her mom to believe in the miracles blossoming from within.
The hot air balloon is another Wycinanka new release (coming soon to 7 Kids!). I was so excited to see it in my Wycinanka DT box that I altered my nearly-complete layout to include it! I layered it with the gentle lilac butterfly paper, which I think Ella's giant heart will delight in.♥️
To encourage my sweet friends, I chose 'follow your dreams' as my theme. The darling bunny is covered with crackle paste. I couldn't resist adding this cutie pie because Ella loves animals so much. The chippie border peeking from behind the center panel is from Wycinanka's Sweet Dreams set. The precious butterfly is a die from Joy! Crafts Vintage Flourishes collection.

Flutter on over to check out the gorgeous projects from my teamies at 7 Kids and Deep Ocean! Then link up and inspire us with your heartfelt creations. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly day.♥️

Wish

Hello, sweet and sparkly friends! Today is my last post on the Live & Love Crafts blog. Although I remain heartbroken at LLC's closure, I am excited for the new adventures that await our fearless leader! Thank you for having me, Sandy! It has been an honor to create for and alongside you. ♥️
I have paired my favorite papers from Maja Design's Vintage Romance with whimsical Wycinanka chippies to send sparkly wishes to a heart in need of hope. ♥️
My beloved Wycinanka fairy appears yet again... I have now used 5 of the 6! They are gorgeous and I adore them sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage. She rests atop a Castle Frame chippie, which has been painted with Distress Crackle Paint. The greeting is from the Make a Wish phrase. The stunning trims consist of Tulle and Marquisa, which are topped with a pearl string bow.

It is safe to say that LLC created my addiction to trims. ♥️
Pomegranate apples add a splash of bright pink love within the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, while the gorgeous French Lace doily adds an extra layer of softness. 

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a magical weekend! ♥️
