Spring Party/Home Decoration – Tulip or Pinwheel?

Hello everyone! I’m excited to bring you another party/home decoration idea for Spring! I couldn’t decide between tulip and pinwheel so I made both! All paper and embellishments I used are from Amy Tangerine Plus One collection by American Crafts. This collection speaks spring to me! I love that it has great patterns and pretty solid color paper with subtle texture, which allows a lot of crafting possibilities! The embellishments are so fun and yummy that I just want to collect them all! No wonder it was the top selling signature line released in winter 2014, right? The Pail I bought a cut file for my electronic die-cutting machine from here for the project today. You can also simply recycle a bucket or a grocery packaging by covering them with paper. I used the fabric brads to attache the handles to the pail. The Tulips I cut the 12×12 yellow […]

RIC #36 – Aren’t You Lovely Card

Hello everyone! It’s time for another Runway Inspired Challenge! Looks like triangles are going to stick around for a while? It’s been my favorite trend since the chevron! I started with a gold foil triangle on kraft paper, rubbed on the sentiment and went over the black lines with a white gel pen to make the sentiment stand out. Gold, dot, chevron, monogram and tiny floral pattern? This card makes me happy! I had so fun playing with this week’s challenge, I hope that you can join us too! There is no product requirements, just be inspired and play! Click on over to see what other ladies on the DT have come up with for you: Runway Inspired (Challenge Details) Aga Jennifer Laura Pamela Tasnim Virginia Wida Thank you for stopping by!

Smile! I had a little pattern play on this card: polka dot, chevron and strip – my top 3 favorite patterns :) What? they are yours too?

I had fun with the camera rub-on but I wish there was a big camera stamp like this :) You have until Sunday April 21 to enter the challenge, don’t miss the fun! Happy crafting! SUPPLIES
