Let's put our Apron's on My Besties Style

Hello Fellow Crafters,

Today I am sharing with you my Apron card project featuring some more fun images, papers and elements you get "In the Garden" CD.

My apron card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/2 Spellbinders Nestabilites Grand Calibur Scallop die cut shape.

I then did the same to the design paper I chose to cover the apron card foundation. Next process I got my elements together that I wanted to put on the card which are strawberries and a couple of different flowers that came in the CD. As you see in the picture below I tweaked one of the yellow flowers by adding pink with my color pencil blending it in. I chose another sheet of designer paper that came in the CD to make some tags using the Spellbinders Shapebilities 'Back to Basic Tags' to put in a pocket I created on the front of the apron card.

 I used my McGill embossing tools to create a dimension on my strawberries and flowers that came "In the Garden" CD.

Here is a a side look at the Apron card with special close ups of the adorable elements added.

Hope you enjoyed my Apron card project and you give it ago tweaking to your liking. Especially seeing how you can use all the different fun elements, images and papers you get in the My Besties CD Collection's. They are a crafters treat to have and play with.
Until next time...Happy crafting.
Peace, Love and Health to you and yours...

Even My Dreams keep me True to Who I am...

Hello Fellow Crafters,

I haven't shared a card on a Sunday in a long while...I have been under the weather this past week.  Today during the wee morning hours I was dreaming I was putting this card together so when I got up I was able to put it together easily. Loving that even in my dreams I stay true to who I am...I love when that happens.

My card consists of the lovely digital design papers by We Are 3/Raggedies Collection sold in the Miss Daisy Stamps store. I invite you to pop on over and check out all the fun digital images, sentiments and design papers you can have fun crafting with. I know this is the third card I share using these papers but they have inspired me and tickled my creative juices. I am laughing because I am not on their Design Team I am just a fun Crafting Lover of pretty things and have found  some new crafting tools like this pretty design paper to play with and mix with what I already have. 
The stamps I used are Sentiment by Stampabilities I don't have the name of the other with the marching children it is by Hero Arts another fun stamp bought at 50% off at Hobby Lobby ages ago along with the ruler ribbon.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Crafting With Friends #23 - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations #159 - Anything Goes- No prize/Just for fun

I hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time Happy Crafting...Peace, Joy and Health to you and yours.

Pocket Full of Raggedies...

Hello Fellow Crafters,

I am here today sharing some beautiful reds in my card design from the digital design paper Raggedies Collection. Sometimes it's hard to design and tone down bright reds when you want to give it a happy yet calm tones...I love to use the alot as a patriotic, bold reds yet calm my design setting with a feminine touch. I fell in love with this Miss Daisy Stamps, We Are 3 Digital Design Paper/Raggedies Collection.  It has a fabulous array of Red, White and Blues. 

I know the paper Designer designed this Raggedies Collection for her love of Raggedy Ann dolls which are the most adorable images but since Fourth of July is around the corner this paper took me a different direction.  HERE is a link in My Daisy Stamps that has a special section for their Raggedy Doll digital images called Raggedies so you can go check these adorable digital images out.

                   Here is a look at the 8 digital sheets you get in this Raggedies Collection 
I made a fun 5 1/2 by 5 pocket card with a  5 x 4 3/4  insert.

The sentiment on the card insert is by Crafters Companion. I used a Martha Stewart hand punch to decorate the top and bottom edges of the white paper portion.

My adorable stamp of the boy and girl trumpeting is a Hero's Art Stamp/Musical Walk which I have had for a couple years. One of those 40% off specials at Hobby Lobby. My heart shaped with 'Jesus Loves You' stamp sentiment is by Inkadinkado.

 I wanted to share with you this fun little technique I love doing with some of my stamps. Sadly I forgot what this technique it is called and I forgot to add the tiny heart stamp so you could see. But I first stamp the heart stamp...cut that shape out then I can use my XOstamp over that and it comes out inside the heart framed stamp. I hope you get the gest of it and try it. As you can see I have used my template alot.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I inspired you to try something new.  Until next time Happy Crafting...Peace, Joy and good Health to you and yours.

Tag You Are It! -- In the Garden

Today I will be sharing with you the fun I have when putting my Tags together. First I am using several of the fun papers, images, and elements you get in the My Besties "In the Garden" CD. I am not Tech savvy but I will share with you what I use the My Besties CD's on. I have an HP, Windows 10 computer and when playing with the CD's to print the images I want to use for my design I use Microsoft Word.  I don't want to get off subject but the Sherri Baldy/My Besties CD's are well worth the money and more.  Sherri literally gives us 100's of digital images in jpg and png to color, cut, make into 3D projects in these CD's you get a fun array of design papers, images, card toppers, elements to go with each featured style My Besties image on the CD. I try to buy one here and there when Sherri gives us her fabulous 50 % and sometimes 55% off sales.  I have four of the My Besties CD's  in my Collection  and am hoping to buy the Ella Bella Buttons on the next sale. Ella Bella is the cutest I love the elements that come with her when you purchase her in the Ella Bella 3D Decoupage kit. You can check the the different CD's all out HERE in the My Besties Shop.

Here are a few pictures of the fabulous images you get in this In the Garden CD
Design Papers
Digital images to color

There are several pre-colored images and card toppers you get In the Garden CD. I chose to use this adorable My Bestie pre-colored image to feature her as I made her into a 3D tag project.

Here is a picture of the beginning stages of starting my #8 size manila  6 1/2 x 3 1/4 Tag. I cut my design paper chosen from the CD to fit the tag.  Once I glued down my design paper I did an inking process on my Embossing Folder by rubbing my pink ink pad on one side of the folder that gave the pretty pink flower impression lines on my paper giving the paper a distressed and different look. I also used the same design paper for my heart diecut design doing the same distressed inking process but did not put as much ink because I wanted the heart diecut design to pop as I double layered it on my tag
Here are some My Besties  Spring 2 Elements Pack 2. tickets embellishments from one of the My Besties Printable Paper Elements line that are available for embellishing your projects. I love them and use them alot. Since these are in the Printable/Digital line you can alter the size as you need. I did make them just a little bit bigger. And I love that you can tweak them by adding a little color with your markers or color pencils. In this case, I coordinated the tickets with the pinks and yellow on my tag. My "be joyful" sentiment I stamped on. As you see on the picture below you get so many fabulous elements to use for your projects. My favorite are the beautifully distressed and floral Postcards. You will have to add this Spring 2 Elements Pack 2 to your wish list it is very useful.  There are tags, sentiments and more in the particular My Besties - Spring 2 Elements Pack 2.

 Here is a close up look and the elements added to my tag. The little sunflower is also an element you get as embellishments for your projects in this In the Garden CD. I love taking advantage of my leftover design paper when they have flowers I cut them cut and use them for future My Besties projects like I did on this one.  The adorable Ladybug is in the Little Sweeties CD as one of the many fun elements which I also tweaked and added some yellow to the flower to coordinate with my tag.

I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges:
My Besties Spanish - June/Anything Goes with a My Besties
My Besties Aussie - June/Anything Goes w/diecuts
My Besties UK - June Anything Goes w/flowers
My Besties Brazil - Bingo - Emboss/button/metal(charm)
I hope you enjoyed your visit...until next time.
 Happy and happiness to you and yours.
