Graciellie Design Fall Fest Blog Hop

Hello, sweet friends! I'm fluttering in today in celebration of Graciellie Design's Fall Fest Blog Hop, where we are creating with lovely goodies from Gracie's digital stamp shop. ♥︎

Today is Day 2! This month Gracie is celebrating with giveaways, sales, and inspiration! Each day you will have the opportunity to win a Graciellie Design digital stamp set of your choice. We have prepared beautiful projects for your inspiration, so hop along and join in the fun. If you haven't joined the blog hop for Day 1, be sure to visit Graciellie Design's blog and start there.
Today I am showcasing the Sent with a Prayer stamp set to deliver love and hope to a family in need. Although my papers don't shout Fall, my card is created to build up a harvest of blessings for the recipient.
The sentiments are bursting with sweet encouragement and the foliage is beautiful. ♥︎
My sentiment is showcased by Wycinanka's Decor chipboard frame, which is sprinkled with pearls and nestled within Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Wycinanka's Background Hearts are tucked in for extra touches of love.
My card base is created with Spellbinders Gold Labels Four to create a sweet set with my card from yesterday. The papers are from Pion Design's Fairytale of Spring, a sheet I have saved for a few years for just the right occasion. I hope it shines light into their dark days. ♥︎

Lavender Love ♥︎

Happy Saturday, everyone! Thank you for sticking with me when I am unable to comment as often as I'd love to. My rainbow is surely coming. ♥︎ I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing an anniversary card celebrating sweet love.

Despite my best efforts not to, I have once again used Pion Design's Scent of Lavender collection. I seem to have an attachment to it. ♥︎ I experimented with many others, but these papers felt right for the design.
The lovey-dovey birdies are Wycinanka's Dove Border, which I have nestled within beautifully wispy Ruffle Trim. ♥︎ The trim is lined with Flatback Pearl String. My card base is made with Spellbinders Gold Labels Four dies. The popped up frame was made by cutting a Labels Four die within the Gold Labels.
For detailing on top, I used one of Wycinanka's gorgeous Bohemian Borders. ♥︎ Purple roses and lilies are tucked in amongst my neutral flower arrangements for sweet pops of color.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎

Crafty Fun with 7 Kids College Fund

Hello, sweet friends! I hope your day is as lovely as you.♥️My long-time crafty friends may recall my design team work with 7 Kids College Fund... many moons ago! I became very good friends with my DT sisters during that journey. Recently the store was to close until two of those friends (Karen and Kelly) purchased it.

They asked me to contribute in their DT on some way, which of course is an honor! I will be joining them for their monthly challenges. It is a pleasure to work alongside my sweet and talented friends. The store recently re-opened and today begins the first challenge under new ownership at the 7 Kids blog! Our theme is Anything Goes! The DT is adding a twist of Autumn/Halloween.
My card is filled with harvest love.♥️ The darling image is from Joy! Crafts Autumn Paper Bloc. She is framed with a beautiful Wycinanka chipboard frame from their Elegance collection. Whimsical Sunflower Pearl Lace dances below.
She is surrounded in Wild Orchid Crafts flowers (coming soon to 7 Kids!), from within Magnolia Heart Flourishes scroll. A Harvest Wine bow is centered with a stunning button from the Rhinestone and Pearl Button set.
Cheery Lynn Two of Hearts dies serve as extra harvest love beneath the My Craft Spot sentiment (no longer in business). My papers are from Maja Design's Walking in the Forest and my card base is made with Go Kreate Frame Frilly 7 dies.

One lucky crafter who plays along with us will win a lovely gift certificate to the 7 Kids store! I hope you'll join us. :) Be sure to check out my teamies' creations on the blog, where seasonal inspiration awaits.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly day. ♥️

Beautiful Friend

Hello, dear friends! I hope you're having a blessed week! I will be catching up with you this weekend, for which I am anxious. :)

Today I am sharing a sweet friendship card on the Live & Love Crafts blog. ♥️ I have combined Pion Design's Scent of Lavender with several Wycinanka chippies.
I don't think I will ever tire of these three papers... the floral designs are gorgeous and the shades of purple are divine. ♥️
The Wycinanka focal point consists of a Glamour-Dusted Fairy layered atop a Loveliness frame. One reason I love Scent of Lavender is that it pairs beautifully with my favorite purple Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The stunning lace along the bottom is the new Marquisa, which I adore. ♥️
The detailing along the top consists of Alica lace and Wycinanka's Sweet Dreams border. Since my friend has a gorgeous heart, I added a Beautiful chippie and accented it with a Rosary Ornament.
The interior is lined with a pretty lacy gray pattern. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely weekend. ♥️
