Sending Wishes Your Way

Good day everyone,

Hope you are having a restful weekend  and get some good time to create blessings for others.
Here is a card I made inspired by all the gold wreaths I made in the last days.

Hope you like it!
That cute butterfly comes from the Basics Butterflies Framelits and the sentiment also from the Butterflies Basics stamp set -it is in backordered at the moment, but soon to start shipping, stay tuned!
Gorgeous Designer Series Paper is Sweet Dreams. Top is a page from a book :)
I had the most fun changing the color of that cute vanilla button. 
Yes, those come in vanilla color not gold. Hehe! Loving this gold spray bottle.

The flower on the left was done using the Flower Medallion Punch.
I punched like 7 times a thin page of a book. Glued together with hot glue and crumple adding a bit of water. Last I sprayed with gold and added the button last.
The right side flower was made using my oldie but favorite Fun Flowers Bigz Die.

Take time to breathe and do what you love.
Take time to appreciate, really appreciate all your blessings.
Take time to live and live abundantly.
Take time to seek God with all your heart, all your mind and all your strength.
Take time to love and love BIG, and don't forget to
take time to dream, dream in colors…stamp blessings today in everything you do.

Love you!

Bouquet Die Flower and Library Paper Wreath

Yesterday was a special day, I finished this fun project and was able to deliver it to the place were they will be displayed. I made about 20 wreaths and 20 centerpiece embellishments to support the Milton Public Library and their Anual Balloom Gala. I have been looking for a fun project to try my  Bouquet Bigz L Die with. And I did!  Gotta love the big flowers you can create with it.

My Stampin'Up! Materials: 
Bouquet Bigz L Die & Big Shot Die Cut Machine, Butterflies Framelits (is on backordered, but soon will be released again:),
My Other Materials: 
a book from the library (well several for the cones), black and vanilla card stock  dollar store gold tissue paper, photo film, fishing line to hang them -all these was provided by the library-; crop-a-file and eyelets, a hot glue gun and a can of gold spray

This is the back of the wreath, these will be hung from the ceiling so both sides needed something pretty.

The first one I made.

Remember I made bunch…my Living Room was bombarded by wreaths this week. 
I had a group of friends that came two Sundays ago and made about 7 flowers with me and cut and sponged and prepped for 20 wreaths. I so love having crafty amazing friends.
Thanks Virginia, Caroline, Cynthia and Lynnsey!


I really liked them, what do you think?

I am living the word I received from heaven this year: enjoy.
I felt such a joy sharing these with my community. We may be selling some for donations to the library after the event. So excited! My kids and I love this library and have been happy to volunteer for events.

And since we have been hibernating this week (my kiddos have been fighting fevers and colds all week long). yesterday my girly (who was feeling better) and I did some Easter Crafts. Here is her cards. I think she is a nature. She did fabulous, and I am so proud of her.

Super easy and cute for this age. 
She took one of my Layers of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin stamps and made a background.  We then cut an oval and she proceeded to tape strips of pretty paper on the back of that layer.She loved punching some Itty Bitty flowers and adding bling. :)

Hope you are encouraged to use your talents to bless your community.
Is not always all about "what can I get?"…why not "What can I give?"
The Milton Library in Pennsylvania gives and gives and has so many neat events. 

I am grateful for the opportunity and so excited to share it with you.
I will be sharing some tips on this and the centerpieces on he next days plus a card I made inspired by this project.

Have a creative weekend!

Blessing others…and Bouquet Die by Stampin'Up!

For some reason it seems as if (as one door for business closed early this month) other smaller doors to bless opened up wide for me.

I have been creating for others more than ever, it is been refreshing to say the truth.

Here I designed some "belly" bands for some journals my pastors gave in gratitude to two wonderful and very loved ministers during the Men's Conference a couple of weeks ago. 

AND I am still finishing my paper wreaths…have you seen sneak peaks on Facebook?
Have YOU?

These were done with all Stampin'Up products.
Gotta love the manly combination of Island Indigo with Smokey Slate. Stamp set used was Be the Star! Gotta love it!
Little sentiment was from  Banner Banter.

I was making a donation for an event, but my contact was not able to deliver it on time. 
Is ok! At least it will be ready for the next event ;)

I embellished my package with this precious flower. I've been using my Bouquet Bigz L Die by Stampin'Up! a lot. Love how simple was to make this type of flower.

I cut only 8 big petals,
sprayed them with a water bottle gently 
and crumple each of them up in my hands. 
Overlap the bottoms (it comes with a slit) next. 
When dry put together with a hot glue gun. 
5 petals on the bottom, 4 on the top.
Add a simple flower (the smallest in the die) from a library book page in the middle all scrunch up.
Last but not least I sprayed the whole flower with the Vanilla Smooch Spray. Love how glittery beautiful it looks. Is hard to see in the picture. (sorry!)

Want to hear something funny?
Yesterday night my sweet Emma comes to both mommy and daddy to say a joke. She asks, "How do you call the kisses of a cow?"
……have no idea huh?

"Smoooooooch!" Hehe… We have one who loves jokes in this family. 
She has many…I laugh and laugh often!

Be creative today, enjoy what you've been given 
and bless someone.
