 Hi friends!  This is a layout I created using Pion Design's latest release, Silent Night.  I love the versatility of this collection; I have used it for several different themes.
The chipboard wagon wheel was dabbed with white paint and sprayed with ink.  I often decorate my chippies this way when I want the pieces to blend into the layout.  The chipboard and white flowers are manufactured by The Dusty Attic and both are available in my shop.
The lovely metal charms on this layout were purchased from Handmade Halo.  They sell a lovely selection of charms, resin flowers and much more!
The title is also made of chipboard letters that were painted, lightly inked for an aged effect and staggered to add dimension.  
The white and green flowers are Dusty Attic Blooms.  You can see the variety of colors available HERE.
The little button heart is also made of chipboard... yes, I am a bit addicted to chipboard!  LOL.  I embossed the button with Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder, and then I applied paint to the button using my fingers!  Finger painting fun!  I set two eyelets in the holes and tied hemp cord through the holes.
This chipboard element is one of my favorite pieces!  The Dusty Attic designed a few double-layer chippies like this one.  The bottom layer was inked with Mix'd Media Inx and the top layer was painted and inked.  The dimension of this piece is gorgeous!  I applied a few pearls to add a touch of elegance.

Thank you for visiting me today!!  I hope you have a lovely day!!

Much love & hugs...

Be Happy

Happy Wednesday, crafty friends!  It has been crazy these past few weeks trying to get the kids back into their school routine and entertaining visitors from Australia!  This layout is of Mistra, one of my Aussie friends!  It was so nice to get to meet her in person, although it felt like we've known each other for ages.
For this layout, I used Pion Design's Fairytale of Spring Collection.  It is such a delightful paper line.
Love this quote... we must remember to enjoy each day and BE HAPPY!
Layered behind the photos, I have used corrugated board, chipboard from The Dusty Attic and die cuts cut from Spellbinders dies.
All of the gorgeous resin flowers and metal trinkets were purchased from Handmade Halo

Thank you for visiting!  Visit my blog for a complete list of products used.
 Much love & hugs... xoxo

Wonderful Besties

Hello again!  Here is another layout for a 'Circle Scrapbook' that we are making at Donna Salazar Designs.  Each team member is making a layout for each of the girls on the DT.  This month I made a layout for Lisa Blastick!
Lisa gave me a photo of her and her best friend and this is what I created...
I used papers from Donna Salazar's Botanique Collection.
The larger of the two flowers is my Cabbage Rose made with Rose Creations dies by Spellbinders. Click HERE for my flower tutorial.  The smaller flower was made with the Bitty Blossoms dies.  Aren't they cute?!  (You can purchase both sets of these dies from my shop.)
The Fancy Tag was cut from a Spellbinders dies and the coordinating bling is from Want2Scrap.
You know me and my lacing!  LURVE IT!!  You can find my tutorial HERE.  I left out the 'twist' this time.  :o)
These beautiful Sweet Pea Borders by The Dusty Attic are also available in my shop.  

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Many hugs!
