My first DT Project!

I am so happy to show you ladies my first DT Project!!! Now I know I just made an accordion card for my Kevin's birthday, but truth be told, I've been so busy that I thought I had more time on my project due date than I did so I had to crank this one out in a couple of hours!!! Thanks for looking!

 I made this card for my sisters birthday. She is always inspiring and encouraging me, so I wanted to do something extra special for her this year. Something that is just as bright and cheerful as her personality! I started with the base construction using 3 different, bright colored pieces of card stock. I made the flower embellishment using my eCraft Basic 12-Purpleberry, cutting out the circle, the pink flower background and the daisy. I used a Say it Pearls Flower Center to embellish the center of the flower. I applied Fruit Punch Stickles as a border and Firefly Stickles as some accent dots around the flower.

 For the inside left panel, I used the Fruit Punch Stickles again as a border around the butterfly and the word "Happy". I also used my eCraft Basic 12-Purpleberry to cut the butterfly and accented it with a couple of rhinestones. 

For the inside center panel I used some printed patterned paper and a couple of dimensional birthday stickers to suit the theme of the card.

 I don't know why this pic uploaded this way...but anywho...or the inside right panel, I applied Diamond Stickles as a border and used some printed paper and card stock to match. Here is the completed card.

This was a very fun and festive card to make, I hope she likes it!
Thanks for looking! :)

Mini Paper Bag Album

E-gags! I haven't been able to post since last Wednesday! I've been busy as a bumble bee, but I wanted to share a mini album I created some time ago combining my scrapbooking and some of my hair styles. In some of the pics I created tags with the photos so you will see part of them inserted where I've either made pockets or where the actual bag opens up at the end.
New project coming soon! Thanks for looking!!

Kevin's B-Day card!

I recv'd one of these from my good friend Debby and I showed it to my Kevin. 
As soon as he saw it, he said "ooh Bell, can you make me one?"
So here it is! You can find the tutorial I did on the base construction on my older posts. Thanks for looking...and thanks again Debby!

 I stamped the image on the cover but it didn't come out as dark as I wanted, so I went over it with a fine point/tip marker. I used the same marker to make the lines to look like stitches. I accented the corners with black rhinestones. I used a 1 1/4 inch binder clip that I altered to hold it closed.

Ok, I don't know why this one uploaded sideways like this but...this is what the inside looks like. I was really hard embellishing this for him...I need to challenge myself more often to do masculine projects!!! :) 

So that's it for now...thanks for stopping and for leaving a comment! I appreciate all of my "blog love"! :)
