Happy Birthday!!!

Hello everyone!
I made this card the other day for my cousin and she shares the love for the same color as I do, so it was a joy to make a card using purple!! :)

I inked the edges of a base white card with some purple pigment ink. Then I cut a piece of soft pink cardstock 1/4 inch smaller than the base card and used a emery board to rough up the edges and then inked those edges with a pink pigment ink. After that I layered a scrap piece of white cardstock with a  piece of pattern paper from my stash, then a piece of purple ribbon and added some Kaiser Rhinestones for a little bling.

Now I know I've done this flower before using my eCfrat Purpleberry, but she liked it so much on my other project that she asked could I make her one. This time I used purple, pink and white cardstock for the flower and jewel brad for the center.

After creating the flower, I adhered it to the card using 3D Pop Dots for some added dimension!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend everyone! :)

My Sunshyne!!

Hello everyone! :)

I guess you would consider this a "layout" that I created of my youngest darling daughter Sunshyne. I wanted to create something to put on one of my walls in my scraproom, but I wanted to get a little more creative than the standard sizes and frames.

So I used my eCraft Purpleberry to cut out the black and purple flower shape that I used as my background.

In this close up, you can see where I used some Black Diamond Stickles to border the title "BEAUTIFUL", that I adhered using foam adhesive squares.

I used some Say it in Pearls as some corner bling. I replaced the original champagne colored bling with the purple rhinestones.

I used one of my purple makers to color these Color Me Crazy flowers to match and added a large gem I had in my stash to the center. I had allot of fun making this unconventional layout and my daughter loves it!
Thanks for looking! :)

Tropical Altered Cigar Box

Hello everyone! :)
With so many different styles of cigar boxes out there, I had to do another one! :) Now since I took soooo many photos, I will try to keep the reading to a minimum. :)


I used our Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue collection throughout the entire box as well as the mini!

I made this flower using some of our Color Me Crazy flowers and some I had in my stash. I also made the stick pin with some pearls I had in my stash.

Here I used Glossy Accents to enhance the flowers in her hair and I used Shimmerz on her eyes and lips! Here's some more views of the outside of the box.

 This is the front.

This is the side. I did both sides pretty much identical.

This is the back.

This is the inside with the mini in it.

I tried to get a good pic of the inside to show that I used some Diamond Stickles to accent the fish on the paper all around the inside and just used some felt from my stash for the bottom.

Now for the mini! :)

Exploding box!

Hello everyone! :)
For my 4th of July project, I thought to myself, since the fireworks will be exploding, why not make a 4th of July Exploding Box! Now I know that the technical name/use for these are boxes BUT, to me these can be cards, minis and boxes! They come in many different shapes and I decided to go with the pyramid shape!

I used our Echo Park 4th Of July paper kit for 2 of the layers of the box as well as the lid. The title and embellishments on the outside also came in the kit!

Here's the view when it's completely exploded! The inner most layer has a circle with a star and some stripes in the middle that I cut from one of the papers in the kit. I used my eCraft Purpleberry machine to cut the white triangles. Here's where I think the possibility of mini can start. Instead of the circle, you can adhere a photo or for a card, you can put a sentiment there. Or quite possibly photos and embellishments on all tabs! :) Just some ideas! Here's some more views.

 On this layer, I used all sticker embellishments that comes in the kit.

I used the same sticker embellishments on this layer as well and some more triangles that I cut out using my eCraft. The possibilities are endless using this kit, I love it! I also have plenty of paper left to do a couple of layouts as well as cards! Thanks for looking everyone and have a safe and Happy 4th of July!!! :)
