With Love…Butterfly Lullaby Greeting Card


Hey Peeps! I’m sharing a card today I created with the new collection Butterfly Lullaby just released from Crafter’s Companion.  This new line is so sweet with gorgeous die cuts, floral patterned papers and coordinating embossing folders.

For this card I used the 6×6 Paper Pad, Daisy Trail Embossing Folder, 3D Circle Die, and With Love Die.

Once I had the 3D Circle Die cut out……I masked the background with scrap paper and added lovely silvery embossing powder and heat set it to create a pretty accent then wove the Grape Plaid Ribbon trough it like a buckle.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Vintage Snowman Wand Tutorial


I’m popping in today to share an easy to follow tutorial on how to make a vintage inspired snowman wand…and lets all just admit now that we have all needed one…and just never knew it lol. You’re welcome! It’s pretty easy to make..so let’s get started….I’ll show you the finished project as a teaser.

IMG_2680Okay…now that you’re hooked….here’s how to make one for yourself….

IMG_2671Paint a paper mache star ornament and hot glue it to a painted dowel.

IMG_2672Add silver glass glitter to the outside edges and clear glitter flakes over the rest of the surface.

IMG_2674Hot glue a white glittery star ornament to the center.


Add printed snowman image. This charming little guy is from Graphics Fairy.IMG_2676Tinsel trim gives the edge a nice finished look.

IMG_2677Add generous lengths of ribbon and lace to the dowel. I used Diamonds and Dots on Silver Satin and White Crocheted Lace.

IMG_2678Here is a nice poofy bow of Double Faced Satin Light Silver added to the bottom of the image.

IMG_2679More bows of twine in Oyster. Topped off with tiny jingle bells….every wand should have jingle bells.


Last but not least….some shimmery opalescent leaves with beaded trim.

Not sure what magical powers I hope to gain from having a snowman wand….I’ll just have to try it out and see : )   You can never have too much faith and magic this time of year : )

Okay that’s it for me….I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G

Vintage Christmas Tags


I spent some time this afternoon working on some sweet little tags I created with my new collage sheet….loads of Stickles, Inks and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


After printing the images…I added lot’s of Stickles and inks then layered them on some larger tags I had in the stash. These bows are sa-weet.  I also added some little goodies to embellish them like flowers, buttons, and snowflake pins.

Halloween Freebie Printable and Gift from a Friend


I’ve got two fabulous things to share today…one a surprise gift I got a few weeks ago from a super talented and super sweet new friend from Florida. And the other is a new freebie printable.

Jeanne Marie sent me this beautiful vintagy Halloween cone that she embellished and filled with goodies and treats : ) She is so generous I just had to share my gifty with everyone. Let me start out by saying…..cones are not so very easy to get pics of : /   So there are lot’s of pics so I can capture the details.

IMG_2451Here it is hanging from the hutch in my kitchen.

IMG_2453She added layered paper rosettes and fun fringy trims. Can you see all the inking she did on the metal cone? Fabulous!

IMG_2466On the back there’s lot’s and lot’s of trims, a giant spider and black bling.

IMG_2467So many layers….swoon!!!!!

IMG_2463Say hello to my little friend….lol These little treats were packed inside the cone.

IMG_2468Not sure yet whats in this package…it’s too cute to open. I love that black glitter on the paper rosette.


Thank you, thank you, thank you Jeanne Marie for this wonderful surprise…it’s become a cherished part of my holiday decor…and I’ll be thinking of you every year when I decorate my home for the holidays : )

Last but not least….here’s another freebie printable from me to you. I kinda love it…I hope you do too!


Still haven’t got the in house IT dept to show me how to turn these into a jpeg…so for now you can just right click on it and save it to a file to print. For personal use only please….do not reproduce this image for items you intend to sell or add it to a digital collage sheet.  That would make me sad : (  many of the elements here are from Graphic’s Fairy.

Okay…that‘s it for me….I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative.
