Hi friends! This project is made again using the Cards, Tags, & more kit from Tres Jolie Kit, these papers are beautiful from Ciao Bella Papers. I absolutely loved making them. It was my 1st time creating using these papers. I also stamped out these beautiful Gorjuss Girls and paper pieced them. I thought they came out super cute!! Hope u like them as much as I do!!


These interactive cards I created using the same collection from Ciao Bella. I cut out some of the tags that were on some of the sheets of paper. I loved the sentiments inside so much too!!

Altered Wooden Box featuring Darcelle collection from Prima Marketing

Hello crafty friends!! This is a project that I created for a mood board challenge @ Tres Jolie Kit Club as well as a DT project for Helmar. I hope u all like how this turned out!


Here is tutorial that I created:

I trimmed and cut the papers that I wanted to use for the outside of the box . After adhering all of the papers to the box. I used some faux leather strips to make the "luggage" straps on the box,   After this I began embellishing my box adding a variety of things for example, the wooden pieces on both sides of the box,  I used some packaging from the Prima Marketing flowers that I was gonna use on top of the box, I used some metal hardware from Prima as my focal point.

 I made some 3x3 cards with envelopes , tags that I had in my stash, I added some papers from the collection to them, they came with some twine so I added that to the box, I also altered a small hardcover notepad. I couldn't find a smaller notepad at the time and of course after I altered this one I came across smaller ones that I had in my hoard. No worries this one came out nice. This can be used as an address book or just a journal.

1108191302 1108191418 1108191310 1108191409 1108191347


 For some of the embellishing in front of the box, the kit that I received from Tres Jolie came with some chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments, I decided to alter them using some Lindys Stamp gang Magical's on the flower as well as some of their Glimmer Mist Spray for the leaves.  I then arranged my  Prima Marketing flowers on it, finished it of adding some glass beads from Frank Garcia's collection.  Lastly added the " This Beautiful Life" sentiment on the metal hardware . I forgot to add that I had inked all of the paper edges on the box, cards, & some embellishments with the Prima Chalk ink that came in the kit as well.

Thank you all for checking out my blog post today and I hope u all have a wonderful and Happy Thanksgiving with ur families!! ~Hugs~

My Mother's Memory

Hello crafty friends! I'm back again and this time I am very excited to share a very special post. Last Thursday was  my very 1st design team project for Tres Jolie Kit Club & the project that I created is very very special to me. 

This altered embroidery hoop that I created is special because it was made in my late mother's memory. She passed away 2 years ago on November 8th 2017, a day before her bday. This year I finally had a chance to make this special project. The moment I received this beautful kit from Kim Heard, owner of Tres Jolie. I knew that I wanted to make something using these beautiful papers from Ciao Bella Papercafts. 
I hope that you will check out the post I made and stay tuned this week for another project for Tres Jolie Kit Club!!
