My Christmas Casita..

Happy Holidays to all my blog friends, so sorry I have been absent for such a long time but I will try my best to get back into the groove of posting some of my work! Its just been a crazy year and now that it's close to the end I can only hope that the coming year is a better one!

So enough of that.... today I have a little decoupage house that I decorated all up in some fun vintage theme papers along with fun glass glitters, trims, beads, and a few goodies here and there.. I hope you like it, I just love the way it came out! I have been eyeing these lil houses for a while and finally made myself get to work on one !! Thank you Paper tales for carrying these cute casitas !! So here is the result.. Here is a close up of the banner that hangs in front, it's draped with some bakers twine . I made some cute little rosettes for the eaves of the house and trimmed them with some glass glitter. This is just a view of the cute lil bottle brush tree that I bleached from a dark green to this lovely cream shade to fit just perfect with my color scheme. This lil reef I also bleached from a dark green to fit right in with my casita!! I just love how they turned out . Below is one of the sides isn't it just so cute... I cut out the Santa and his Reindeer and decoupaged them onto the base paper. It's so cute I just love this vintage Santa!! I added lots of clear buttons to the roof and glittered it all up with some clear sparkle glitter and some mica to look like snow!Here is a close up of the back side of the house.. This is the other side of the house.Again I used some vintage images, check out the cute snowman couple! Just adorable! Well Chica's that's it for my little Christmas casita I hope you enjoyed what you have seen thanks for stopping by and I hope to post again soon

Merry Christmas to all with love always ...

Monthly club project, beautiful cards!!

Hola Chica's

Yesterday was another successful club day with the girls every ones cards turned out beautiful.. we had lots of fun creating them! The cards I designed for the girls are using mostly all SU products with the exception of a few embellishments! We made a set of five cards using the Elegant Soiree DSP, Elegant lines EF, Elegance wheel, and Always elegant stamp set! I love using the Suite Series that SU offers it just makes creating projects so much fun! I also used some sentiments from other sets throughout the cards..

Here is the first of five card.

I got my inspiration from the Forever Young cricut cartridge. I love all the girl silhouettes in it.
Here is card two. Isn't it just so cool! I love her sassy dress.

Here is card three. This is the smallest card in the series but it's so cute, just love it for a cute little gift for one of my friends b-days!

Here is a close up of card four. In this class the girls learned how to use Heat Emboss. You can see the detail behind the girl, this was stamped on velum, it gives it such a subtle look I just love it.Here is the full view.. Here is the close up of card five. This one is my favorite! Well honestly I love how they all turned out (wink)! Gave some pizazz to the dress!

Here is the full view of the largest one we did.. I just love it! It's so pretty and for a Mother on her special day this is perfect!

Well Chica's I hope you like all the cards I had to share with you today enjoy and have a great Sunday .... It's gorgeous outside today so I am of to check out the coast! Until next time .

Wedding Shower Gift..

Hola chica's.. Thought I would share this recipe box I made for a friends wedding shower! I was inspired by this really pretty apron that I purchased for her that had all the pretty blue hues in it, totally her style! My thought was to make her a basket full of goodies for her kitchen and what better personalized gift than a cute lil recipe box to match!! So I purchased an unfinished wooden box from Michael's and just dry brushed it with some acrylic paints and some ranger stains. I used some stazon ink to personalize the wood box on the back here is the first picture. I didn't want to paint the inside so I just did the edges and left the inside natural. I made some blank recipe cards to go inside with a scene at each tab of type of food! You can see the tab that says "breads" on it..
Here is a view of the front of the box! I painted right over the hinge too.
For the top of the box I found these really cool jewelry charms in the perfect colors and simply attached them to the box with a small ring and used hot glue so they wouldn't move. what a perfect match ha (smile)!!
Here is the whole basket, on the right you can see the pretty apron with all the pretty blues in it..and my lil box was a great addition to the gift basket, I really like that it has something homemade in it from me to her and hopefully she will Cherish it for many years to come..(wink!)
Well chica's I hope you like my post today! Thanks for stopping by and until next time..

Cupcake shower gift.. OH SO CUTE!!

Hola chica's,
Hope you all had an awesome Sunday afternoon. Today was a lazy Sunday for me just kinda hung out! I finally got to finish my friends baby shower gift and thought I would share it with you all. Here is a pic of the whole ensemble. Here is a top view of the box I made with the cute lil cupcakes I made to go inside. I made them with onesies and burp towels and I used some baby mittens in the middle with the ruffled edge to look like the frosting and topped them with some flower baby barrettes to look like the topper!
Here is a close up of the tag I made using one of my favorite SU stamps called Homemade. I thought it was perfect for this gift. A close up of the cupcakes inside the box!
Here is the matching card I made with my cricut and throughout the project I used some stickles to add some extra bling!!
Here is the bag topper that I made with a new stamp set I recently got from MY CUTE STAMPS I can't remember the name but it's adorable for baby cards and gifts. I also used my new build a cupcake punch from SU and the coordinating stamp! I just love those new build a punches makes things so easy and fast. How cute it that lil owl with her oh so cute scalloped diaper! LOVE IT! (wink!)
well chica's that's it for tonight, until next time hope you enjoy viewing my shower gift and thanks for stopping by.

Birdcage project

Hi Chica's
I know it's been forever long since my last post so sorry, believe me my friend Dora got on my case yesterday for having no new post! So here is a project I did last night. I got this cute birdcage hanging at M's yesterday and it had a picture of some birds in it that did match my decor, but of course us crafty chica's see many options to fix it!

Here is my final result I used some shabby paper from a pack I found really cheap at Ross one day, and some K&co elements that matched perfect. I also used my cricut to die cut the shape in the background and the scroll above the picture, oh and the bow border towards the bottom. It's kinda hard to view in the picture but the paper used for the bow is flocked it's really pretty =) and the ribbon border across the bottom is a pleated satin that worked really well.

I hope you chica's like it was fun to make and I got the cute lil birdie's at M's and just clipped them on for a fun accent..
well until next post chica's have a lovely Sunday afternoon
