Reverse Canvas



I wanted to share a quick video for how I made this reverse canvas!
Hoping to get a gallery wall up in my house & I knew as soon as I saw this transfer that I had to have it. 
Chalk Couture transfer so insanely popular that sometimes they sell out super fast but you can click HERE to see what is currently available. Check back often as things are constantly coming & going.  :)

Butterfly Gala Stamp Camp!

Excited to share some details for my first Stamp Camp of 2019!
January 26th 2pm San Jose,CA

So to recap my campers will get the stamp set, punch, & 9 cards for $49 or they can chose to just do the cards for $25. 
If I have enough interest I will set this up as an online class as well!


I love to make little gifts for my class attendees & these came out so cute!
I bought these little chalkboards on Amazon & found a roll of that vine at Target during Christmas time but Stampin Up has leaf ribbon that will probably work too.
I embossed the sentiment from the new Incredible Like You set & hot glued all the embellishments on. Hope they love them as much as I do!

#TGIFC193- Color Challenge

Happy New Year Friends!

I was so inspired by this weeks TGIF Challenge that I had to ink up my 
Lovely Lattice Sale a Bration stamp again!

http://tgifchallenges.blogspot.com/2019/01/tgifc193-color-challenge.html

I decided to do a bit of water coloring with Melon Mambo & Lemon Lime Twist. 
My little butterfly decided this would be the perfect place to land!


Of course I had to pair all this beautifulness with my new favorite DSP! 
Can you believe you can get this paper & the Lovely Lattice stamp set for FREE?!

Brusho!!!

Hey Crafty Friends!

I have a super quick post for this last day of 2018 featuring my first go with the Brusho Crystals!


I embossed the new FREE Sale a Bration stamp, Lovely Lattice on to glossy cardstock & then just sprinkled a bit of the yellow & red Brusho on, spritzed with water, & used my heat tool to dry them.
It was kind of magical the way the Brusho works!

The sentiment & butterfly punch are from the 2019 Occasions catalog.
Don't forget Sale-a-Bration starts January 3rd!


Well friends I am off to celebrate my daughters 14th birthday!
See ya next year!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm here to show you the card I made for my mom using the butterflies I punched out in my last blog post. 


I wanted them to have some dimension so I spritzed them lightly with water & wrinkled them up a bit then I dried them with my embossing gun. But before I did that I took a black sharpie & carefully outlined the butterflies to help them stand out even more. 
Mom liked it so I'll call that a win!

Well that's all I have for you, thanks for stopping by today!
