Lolie and Shellie

Today I'm back to share some more Mintay papers from the "Together" collection.  I'm really enjoying playing with colors I don't normally use so the challenge has been fun!!  I started by using those Joy "Ornamental" borders and layered up.  I even layered some of the new gorgeous laces available in the store.   They are pretty!  Even their names are pretty with Lace Aria, Lace Darcia and some Beaded Ivory Pearl Trim.  I also used my new favorite die (under my image) called "Clock with Swirls".  What a stunning piece!! 

Eeeeeee back with the flowers!!  Again tho, I am so excited to be using the BON BON's!!!  And of course the spirals but BOTH are available in a gorgeous array of colors so there's something for everyone!!  Or one of every color.  hee hee  😀😀

In the 6 x 6 paper pad there are a few extra sheets that have some designs you can cut out, like these air balloons.  There is also a sheet of tags....well, you might call them something else but I used one and added a little "HELLO" sentiment.

Oh and here's a Whimsy image called Lolie and Shellie who I've colored using Copics.  Oh she's just a darling!

Thanks so much for popping in!!

Well this was fun!!!  LOL!!  I got a chance to use LDRS's "Tea-Riffic" for a second time but managed one with black hair instead of brown!  I paired her with some new LemonCraft papers called "Violet Silence" which come in 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 pads.  I've used 3 rows of lace incorporating some mini pink pom poms, sparkly flower rhinestone pearl trim and gorgeous Lace Jacqueline.  If you haven't had a chance to take a look at all the new laces, you are missing out!!  Oh how do you like my little kettle charms?  hee hee  I thought they were rather fitting!

Ahhh my flower bouquets!!  I've made some Foamiran flowers adding some matt vintage and pearl stamens but also some pink glass stamens.  I've layered in a hyacinth, pink pearl spray, a lilac foam spiral AND A BON BON!!!  You can see the bon bon better in the right pic.  I LOVE THE BON BON'S!  I like saying BON BON too.  LOL!!  

Underneath this bouquet I snuck in a pretty die from Fantasy "New Year's Desire Catcher". At first glance I thought they were snowflakes but they aren't.  YAY!  I'm gonna use this thing on everything!  ha ha ha!!  I added a little green fruit stamen beside my pink flower for some added foliage.  There are quite a few colors in the shop and super cute!  

Well now that I've just written my post I want to go play and I can't.  It's evening and I'm off to bed as I've had a long day.  YAY to the weekend coming so I'll get lots of crafty time in.  It's still very much winter here and being inside is much nicer.  LOL! 

Enjoy your weekend when it gets here and 
thanks for stopping by!!

I did post my amazing new craft room a few years ago but I wasn't finished yet.  I have since installed more cupboards and a wall display and now it's done!!  I have had a number of people tell me they'd love to see where I work so here it is.  I didn't have the upper cabinets so had those installed in the summer.  Hubby says just because you have more room doesn't mean you have to fill it.   WHAT?!!!  You do realize I'm a crafter right?!!  LMBO!

I love this big closet ... it's full.  ha ha ha ha ha!!   In the rolling carts I have all my flowers and in the green organizer's I store all my embellishments.  

This is my favorite part of the room as it hosts everything cool!  LOL!!  The wall display was just installed this past week hence why it isn't full yet.  That'll come with time.  I'm so happy with it.  

Taking pics in lighting...well I've still not perfected that but anyway, I love the CREATE letters I've put above the window and although you can't see it, my view is amazing of the back yard.  It's just full of snow anyway.  Bleech!  LOL!!  

Oh ha ha ok yes and the island for 4 is my favorite as well.

This view is my double doors leading from hubby's man den into my craft room so we can separate out both rooms if we have friends over or want to watch our own TV's.  

Speaking of TV's, you can see my laptop so that is my normal station and when I look into his man den I can see his monstrosity of a TV over the fireplace.  I think it's a 78" and curved so you can sit anywhere and have a good view.  It's great to watch a movie or sports on.  hee hee

Just one more pic of the island. 

And there you have it!!!  This is where I spend most weekends and I love it.  I am soooo lucky and appreciative of what I have.  I never thought or even dreamed of having something like this.  I walk into my home and then my craft room and after 2 years I still can't believe it's mine!!  WHAT?!  For me?!!  LOL!!!

Can you believe it?!!  It's already February 1st and you know what that means right?  


This month the theme is CELEBRATIONS!   I know we just had this one but I HAD to share another Christmas card.  Isn't that crazy?!!  LOL!!  I used the super cute Studio Light "Winter Feelings" papers and added some OH SO FUN pom pom lace or ribbon, whatever you'd like to call it.  I've layered the image and saying using Joy's "Clock with Swirls" die and distressed all edges.

Such a cute image from Magnolia called Christmas Party Tilda.  I added the sentiment from Magnolia Christmas Party Holiday Wishes Kit and added a few candy canes from the same set.  I also added some Scrapiniec confetti stars, which I also distressed with ink.

HAVE YOU SEE THE LOADS OF LACE AND RIBBON ADDED LATELY?!  Oh WOW!!  Of course I knew I'd be able to use that gorgeous organza ribbon to make a double bow.  I've also added lots of Wild Orchid Craft flowers from the store.

There are some new pins in the shop as well and the one on the right is called sparkly rhinestone pin.  You had me at SPARKLY.  😀  Precious!!!!

This little house is from last year's Doohickey kit but there are plenty more other kits available in the store.  Isn't that deer charm cute too?!!

And there's my CELEBRATION card for this month's challenge inspiration.  I hope you can play along and remember, there are pretty much NO RULES.  Just enter!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mintay Papers

Have you seen the new papers in the store?!!  OH MY GOSH!!  These are stunning!!  And if you haven't seen yet, there is a huge giveaway for this month's "Anything Goes" challenge.  4 different prize packages of Mintay Papers, which I happen to be featuring today!

I TRIED not to cover the papers with my usual embellishments and I don't think I did too bad! 😁😁 I really wanted to showcase those stunning "Birdsong" papers.  I've added 3 rows of new laces, the tiny white pom poms (and there are many different colors!!), the rose ribbon with pearl pink champagne and lace "Florie".  OH MY that stuff is luscious!!!  

I really love the color combo of peaches and turquoise in this set.  It was nice to play with more spring colors.  This is Tilda with Daisy Umbrella who I've colored with Copics.

This piece is STUNNING!! OH MY WORD!!!  I layered this gorgeous rhinestone bow with pearl atop a seam binding bow.  Scrumptious!!

I hope you're having a wonderful week!

Take care for now and get crafty!

Winnie's Scrummy Cupcake #2

I had this paper pad still only slightly used so since I'm in the SPRING spirit (especially after last week of household flu's) I knew it HAD to be played with.  LemonCraft's "Just Love Me" is all on sale right now so be sure to check it out!  On this layout I've used Wycinanka's "Lace Borders No.1", a strand of pearls and a strip of Lace Georgina.

Here is my usual bouquet of Wild Orchid craft flowers, a seam binding bow and a pretty decorative gold rose button.

Another pretty bouquet with some more flowers and meadow spray.

I really enjoyed coloring this cutie up not long ago so had to do it again only this time she's a blonde.  LDRS's "Winnie's Scrummy Cupcake" colored with Copics.  I added some Scrapiniec confetti hearts and dabbed some Stickles over top.  Pretty!!

By pressing the flower in her hair, it turns on a little LED light under her green bow on the cupcake.

There we go for this week!!  Soon I will have more exciting products to play with so more eye candy to come!  LOL!  Stay tuned!
