Floral Emporium Baby Wall Hanging!

Hi everyone how are you? I just came back from an amazing weekend and I created this adorable wall hanging before I left but it did not get posted. I used the new Floral Emporium imagine cartridge and one of the basic shapes included on the imagine machine. The chose two pattern papers and the coordinating solid pink on the cartridge to create the cute little onsie.

Tip and trick: to decorate the onsie I used artificial flowers and flower trim green cut in half to create the diaper.

I hope everyone is having a great day

Design on a Dime Breast Cancer Awareness Onsie.

I love how this project turned out.  My grandma had Breast Cancer so far my mom is in the clear but that means my risk is still pretty high. I wanted to make this onsie to give to a mom who is fighting this horrible disease and has just had a baby or is pregnant. This whole project was so cheap. The onsie was 3.00 and the fabric scrap only .75 cents and I added the hot fix crystals to the breast cancer ribbon.

 The family mail holder was created using the gypsy. My family has a very hard time putting mail away. It seems to migrate all over the house. When I saw this basket at the flea market I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. I am so happy with how it turned out.

CTMH Art Philosophy Birthday Card

Happy Wednesday I hope everyone is having a creative day. I had so much working with this new cartridge and matching accessories. I decided to make a card to showcase the some of the great cuts on this cartridge. I used this beautiful shaped card from the card feature 3rd row-3 button non shift at 5 inches. I used the combo feature 3rd row shift key on cut in the pattern paper and the green cardstock too. I cut the leaves out of the green paper. I also cut out the flowers at 2 inches from the font feature and used 3 of them on the card. I stamped the sentiment on the chip tile and added the ribbon and the pearls.This set is so amazing and everyone should add this kit to their wish list.


Have a Super Creative Day


Sophie rocks… Beautiful Dress Form

Beautiful Dress Form: I am creating a few pieces of art for my studio. Iwas given these amazing wooden dress forms from Kaiser to alter.  I loved the cuts on the Sophie Cartridge. There are many demasks and ornate designs on this exclusive circle cartridge. This cartridge is exclusive to the circle members. To create this dress form paint the dress form gold colored. Cut the base layer of accent-7 and accent -4 at 3 inches out of chipboard. Cut the pattern paper out of the base shape of both accent cuts. The top layer of the accents paint gold and layer the patterned  paper over the chipboard base shape. Use a different pattern paper and cut triangles out and roll them up to create rolls. Cut the base heart out at 2 inches and paint red. The rolled paper will be layered on the bottom of the skirt. Add the chipboard layers to the skirt and the small flowers. We will be adding more projects all weekend long. I will be creating a dress form with a few of the cartridges so stay tuned. I love this release and I think you will too.



I hope you enjoy our projects. We will have more projects on the Provo Craft sight. Two of my projects were in the look book the blinged out princess tiara place card and card. I was so excited to see these projects. We created a beautiful party theme that will be on the site. I can not wait to see how the pictures turn out.
