Butterfly Kisses...

Hello Fellow Crafters,

February is here...hearts, love, hugs and butterfly kisses. May you enjoy each day as it overflows with the love and grace God pours into your life's journey...allowing the Sun to rise and the Moon to set as our nightlight...giving each of us butterfly kisses with natures beauty throughout our day.

Today starts a new Challenge over at My Besties 3D and More...for the Month of February and it is Anything Goes with a My Besties image. And as you saw a sneak peak from my heading I chose to use a Colored Printable image JT4  I made into a 3D Decoupage project. I cut her out with scissor and used pop dots to layer. She looks like she is sending you butterfly kisses with her big adorable eyes. I fell in love with her and the color scheme.

Wintry Fun...

Hello Fellow Crafters,

We are having such a blast of Wintry weather pass through here in Texas and the East Coast. It gives me sweet memories of my trip to Lake Tahoe with all its lovely wintry picture perfect landscapes. Snow can look so beautiful and I prefer to enjoy it on pictures and television.

Today I want to share a fun Wintry Card I made with an adorable 3D Snow Family Decoupage kit that comes in Sherri's White Christmas CD.  
 
   I chose to create a beautiful winter scene for my Snow Family

I also used for my background one of the Design Paper pages from the Dear Santa Printable Paper packs. The pink and white design which I dry embossed and layered with loose snow glitter. I also brushed a light layer of Snow Glitter paste on the Snow Family.
 
I hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time Happy Crafting.

Fun with Little Sweeties CD Elements by My Besties

Hello Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a couple projects I made using some fun elements you get in the My Besties CD's - Little Sweetie.  There are over a hundred different elements, papers, digital images, colored images, card toppers and more and I am just sharing a few of them.  You can see the variety of different CD's available HERE in My Besties Shop.     
                                 
Here are a couple of projects I had fun putting together. I chose to use a lot of the elements and try my fun with Pocket Letters. I use Microsoft Word to crop some of the elements to cut out with my scissors as added embellishments for my Pocket Letters. I also typed some sentiments on some of the Card Toppers making them into Pocket Letter size. An added embellishment to my Pocket Letter holder I added strips of the Lace Heart frame die which you can now also get on SVG file-Heart Frame.

I used one of the box templates that I cut out with scissors and fancied up the edges with a handpunch border. With a card topper and adorable blouse element made into tags. There are several pretty box templates with beautiful designs. I chose this one.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and I tickled your creativity with this fun filled My Besties CD. I own several and they are so much fun.  Don't forget you can visit The My Besties Shop and check out all the fun products.
