Try It On Tuesday~Challenge “How Does Your Garden Grow”

This week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is How Does Your Garden Grow.  I created this card using Tim’s new alteration die and embossing folder the butterfly.  I also, used the new sizzix Prima butterfly/wings die for the middle and added Tim’s frosty film behind the little wings and crystal stickles in the front.
The roses in the middle of the butterfly are Wild Orchid Flowers and the bottom left corner are the flowers I made using the Martha Stewart Punch. 
Super easy to make and I love how they turned out.  Be sure to check out the other beautiful creations from the TIOT Design Team and come and play!  Have a great week!

Finished Cartographer Mini

I thought I would share with you the finished mini I did last week. 


I used a dollar wood frame from Michaels, Kaiser wood gear as well as prima wood gears.  The dragon fly was cut from kraftex.  I made the stand so the book could stand up right.


This is one of the Jamie stamps called “Jing” and I sent this out to her and she loved it.  Have a great week.

Simple Stories Mini ~ Hold ATCs & Thank Yous


I wanted to share with you the finished book.  You might not know that Scrapadabadoo sends out thank you cards with each order and I wanted a place to keep them so, I designed this book to hold my thank you cards and charms.

I created this book from my Steampunk Soiree Book to hold my ATCs from the event.


Inside cover I created the sunflowers from Susan’s Garden sizzix die.  I added the fence from a Magnolia die and hand cut the chicken.  The photo frame is a sizzix instant photo die and the girls are from Prima’s Julie Nutting collection.


Here you can see how I used chicken wire to hang the charms and the soda tabs for the binding.  You can see how it was done on my Ustream channel.  Have a great week.
