Be Encouraged...




Hello Fellow Crafters,

Today I am sharing words of encouragement that I pray will lift up your heart as I display and designed them on a Circle Easel card featuring We Are 3 Digital Papers. The Dandelion Wishes Paper Collection, the Miss Daisy Paper Collection and one sentiment from a lovely set of 4 Digital-Courage Sentiments by We Are 3 Digital Paper available in Miss Daisy Stamps.  






I made my Circle Shaped easel card to enter Miss Daisy Stamps Facebook Group - August Monthly Challenge with the THEME: Shaped Cards. I invite you to pop on over and join this fun Group. And for those of you who were Followers of StampArt Design by Kathryne this is her as Miss Daisy Stamps. 



I had quite a bit of a challenge as I made this special shaped card not because it was hard to create a design but because my body has been giving me a challenging time of cooperating in giving me shorter periods of physical energy without pain. I was determined to be strong and encouraged as I kept reading this Sentiment/Scripture to get it done giving it my special touches and attention to little details because I wanted whoever I gave it to...to enjoy looking at and feel they were not alone and to be encouraged that they were being thought of and in my prayers.

I did use so many of my fun dies by Spellbinders, Anna Griffin, Memory Box, Joanna Sheen and even a McGill leaf die punch.


I would like to enter my card into the following Challenges.
A Bit More Time... #25 - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday #242 &243 - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs - Use Dies
Craft Your Passion #324 - Anything Goes

I hope you enjoyed your visit and decide to Follow my Blog along with popping over to Miss Daisy Stamps Facebook page and join the fun group for Monthly Challenges and other fun.

Until next time...Happy Crafting. And may Joy, Peace and Health be yours.

Pockets Full of Fun...My Besties Style

Hello Fellow Crafters,

New Month...New Challenge over at My Besties 3D and More...The THEME is always Anything Goes with a My Besties image and I love to share when I say "and More" that there is such a fun assortment of image styles you can play with. For instance: 3D Decoupage SheetsPre-colored PrintablesDigital imagesRubber Stamps and More. I invite you to visit the My Besties Shop  or Sherri Baldy's Etsy Store to see what Sherri Baldy Designs has for you to have fun with on your next project. I just happen to LOVE designing my projects with the 3D Decoupage Sheets or Printables.
Today I will be sharing two Pocket Cards and a Picture Tutorial on how to get started. I think they have a fun way of being reused as envelopes to put your special notes in.
Using Floer Power Design Paper Pack  And 3D Decoupage Digital Image "Sweet Mary Lou"

On this Pocket Card I am using My Besties "Spot of Tea" 6x6, 8 Pack Printable Design Papers along with the Printable June 2 or you can always choose to buy the Digital Image170/Mad Hatter  to color on your own,


Here is how I start my Pocket Card foundation and then tweak to how I want to fancy up the style.
 All you need is:
  • ScoreBoard
  • 6 x 6 sheet of paper(with a design of your choice---this will be the back of pocket card)
  • 5 x 5 1/2  sheet with your Design choices--this will be the front of your card
  • Scissors to cut the corners off ,  Oval or Circle Die or punch tor easy access for insert card--if you want one. As you see on my two Pocket Cards - one has one and the other does not.
  • Insert will be 4 3/4 x 5 1/2
                                           

This is where you can decide if you want to give your front and back top Pocket Letter fancy Edges or embossing effects with your current  Embossing Folders, Edge Dies and Punches BEFORE you glue together.

I hope you enjoyed your visit...Until next time...Bountiful Blessings of good health, joy and happiness be yours

Be Encouraged...


Hello Fellow Crafters,

I want to start my Post today with words of encouragement and Holy Scripture we can stand on in these times of darkness going on in the world. There is so much bad news shown by the media and internet.  It can make it seem like there is no way to find calm in the midst of all the turbulence. I have found God calms me in the midst of the storm as I trust in Him.  
 
My Tag was inspired by the beautiful scripture Psalm 46: 1 designed into a Set of 4 different digital Courage Sentiments by my Crafting Friend Bonnie Kohane Designer of We Are 3 Digital Design Papers and Sentiments sold in the Miss Daisy Stamp Store.   Bonnie also has a Facebook Page HERE where you can join to keep up with her new Digital Paper Line and share your projects using them.

My Besties Smorgasbord Fun


Hello My Fellow Crafters,



I am excited today to share how we can have fun using some of our delightful smorgasbord of My Besties Design Paper and elements we have in our stash.  The project I am sharing with you today is an easy fun treat holder which I am using as a Pen Holder to give to the Ladies at one of my upcoming Bible Studies. I may even add a lollipop in each one if I get to the Candy Store. 
The My Besties digital pre-colored image I will be featuring is a Printable March PaperClip Bk1 image that Sherri Baldy designed after my precious Furbaby Little Miss Pepper. 


 For this project I will be using a smorgasbord of My Besties Design Paper sheets from the "Dear Santa" and "Fairy Garden" Paper packs along with some flowers embellishments leftover from
printing and cutting out from the Willow Wisp Fairy 3D Decoupage kit and keeping in My Besties Flower Stash.  

http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p3418/Printable_Paper_Pack_6_x_6__My_Besties_%22Fairy_Garden%22_Paper_Pack__9_Digital_Download_.htmlhttps://www.etsy.com/listing/150871514/instant-download-digital-digi-stamps?ref=shop_home_active_66
https://www.etsy.com/listing/150871514/instant-download-digital-digi-stamps?ref=shop_home_active_66

The pens I am giving away are dollar store Bic pens that I have gently covered with yarn using hot glue and placed a pink rhinestone on the top.

You can watch the Youtube video I have attached and/or here are my written details of materials you will you need:
  • A  2" by 11" long sheet/strip of paper for your foundation to decorate. 
  • A scoreboard...scoring this 2 x 11 at  6 1/2 and 6 7/8. 
  • For the decorative design paper of your choice you will need 2 @  1 3/4 x 6 1/8 and 1 strip @  1 3/4 by 3 7/8 inches.
  • A 1" circle punch for the hole to put your treat/pen/pencil in
  • An Corner Edge rounder if you want to give your project a special look.
  HERE is the Youtube video shared by a gracious Crafter Kerry. She actually calls this a Valentines Goodies holder...so it does have universal use.  I think it would even be great for the first day of school to give to students. There are so many ways you can use and decorate.


I invite you to pop on over to the My Besties Shop and check out all the fun and fabulous digital images, coloring books, clear stamps and more that are there to tickle our creativity.
