Egg-Shaped Container

Hi and Happy Saturday everyone,  so glad you could pop by…

I have a tiny confession…  one of my new favorite challenge blogs is the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog and I find myself itching to play along and put a bit of as Easter spin on it.  The theme for this challenge is “Pick a Stamp, Any Stamp.”  They want to see a stamp (or stamps) on your project so I decided to use a “oldie but goodie” stamp set called “Easter Blessings” from JustRite.  I also pulled out my much “hoarded and coveted “Maja Designs Papers.

For my project I used the Egg-Shaped Container from the Poplar Street Tulips SVG Kit.

Glitz and Glam High Heel Shoe

Hi everyone,  so glad you could pop by…

Today we are having yet another snow day, actually a “blizzard” so in my estimation it’s a great day to craft!  I created a fashion shoe for the latest challenge at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.  The theme is “Show Some Sparkle Glitz or Glam!”  and I have the perfect project in mind for this!  I was so happy with how it turned out : )   The photos doesn’t really do it justice… It’s so sparkly in real life.

I used the 3D shoe from the Love Always SVG Kit from SVGCUTS.COM.  I pulled out some of my “hoarded” stash of glitter paper.  I have been holding onto this for a while now just waiting for the right time to use it and was the best challenge to break it out!

Victorian Teapot

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday to you : )

Thanks so much for popping by today.  A few weeks ago I think I mentioned that I wanted to try my hand at creating the lovely Victorian Teapot from the Honeybee Tea SVG set from SVGCUTS.COM and here it is!  I used some of my “hoarded” stash of Maja paper.  I have such a fetish for paper, it`s insane.  I tend to buy WAY more than what I can use but I just can`t help myself LOL!

I usually make all of my flowers by hand from stamped die cuts but for my flowers today I used a combination of Wild Orchid and Fabric flowers along with the Rolled Rose from the Crush on You Boxes SVG set from SVGCUTS.COM.  It was my first time trying one of their rolled roses and I thought it worked quite nicely on this project.
