My little victorian project.

I decided to make some homemade made them first.
Then I went ahead and made fabric centers for each of the hearts.
I love beads and flowers so added them.
I wasn't done so I attempted my very first ever YO-YO....oh my gosh...
I am in love with them. I made 8 but only needed 6 for this project.
I hot glued pretty pink roses to the centers and hot glued one to each of the shades.
I really like how it has turned out. Not to gwady...Just right!

Thanks for peeking at my lighting chandler.

Thank you card....

I made this card with the help of my gypsy/cricut. Welded the vase to make a folding card. I used Magnolia Tilda colored in with MS pencils this time...Also the magnolia sunflower stamp was colored with my shiney gel pens. I was on a shine kick so used my stickles to glitter the top of the vase. It has Thank you stamped and embossed on it. Used sheer ribbon and 3d foams too. Entered this card into *Thank you* challenge over at

You have to bare with me as I have a headache today....It is so beautiful I sat out there for a bit and my headache did not feel any better so came in.

The flowers are in bloom....

Yep...Another project by me....
I had so much fun with this one. From making my own flowers...the crochet ones my sister in law made and I put the burlap and button on them. The paper ones on the pen and each of the other items. I used the cute magnolia Tilda sitting on the Magnolia bench.

I used my cricut(gypsy) to add Bloom from one of my cartridges.
I used the gel pens to glitter up the word bloom as well.

I inked Peace and the background colors with Tim Holtz distressed ink.

This was a creative idea I came up while talking with a friend at Walmart. We were on the isle where they sold these and I just picked it up and thought hey why not chalkboard a section on it.
You can erase and put whatever you want on it.

Here are some of my papers I used to make the backgrounds. My Minds Eye paper from Deena Rutter.

I used painter tape to tape off the section.

Before I decorated it...Showing the paint drying. LOL If you would love to see some unique things check out this wonderful site Brag Fest. You name they showcase it.

Entering in challenges: Buttons Handmade flowers Noel, Peace or Joy...I used Peace and great christmas idea too. A great gift for "MOM". Flowers 3d (lots of foam on this one. Flowers and butterflies have wings and many flowers on these. anything goes. Girlie

Belle's & Whistles...broom and dustpan

Belle's & Whistles

I had to make a fun project this evening as it is pretty rainy here... So I used the most delightful image from Belle's & Whistles....They are one of my favorite stamps! She is vacuuming so it was fitting for the project. I purchased this darling set at Goodwill for a $1.06. Yep....great deal.

I colored her in with copics and gel pens. I used some dp of pink and black that looked sort of like tile for the background. I used flowers and ribbon. Inked up card stock, cut with pinking shears and added a stamp *Hello*. Used stickles to highlight the dots.

Hope you like....thanks for always leaving me such lovely comments. It was a fun project to put together.

Victorian mom's card

So sorry there is a glare on the card. Here is a mom's day card that I actually made with some of my homemade flowers out of material scraps. I used pretty buttons as the buds and some pearls on the side. I inked alot of the card as I thought it was fitting for the look. I used a background paper from my Memories of Lifetime book. I just love them! With the big bow and the sentiment it gives off a wonderful victorian feel. So this lovely card is so me...I am having my boys address it to me from them. That way I can showcase it in my home it fits my living room area perfectly. Anything old...In my case this is a vintage scene...made with old buttons.

Some projects and about me note....

Don't forget to check out my recent posts.... I entered the top one in a challenge for 3 embellishments...over at I made this beautiful Wedding Bliss tag book. I will be filling it in with wedding photos once I come across them... I used a wonderful Magnolia image. Lots of inking on this book to antique it.

Here is a sweet little image from Belle's & Whistles... I added one of my flowers from the aluminum can on this one... Made a pipe cleaner stem and flower pedals 3d. I love cute companions background image. here are a little tidbits about me:
I love God first....I have never been a hypocrite in my life...I believe honesty is the best policy.
My boys and husband come in as a close 1st. I am blessed to have each one of them. I would not chance a thing about them...I've learned the best thing on my own and that is to treat each of them as an individual....and to NEVER EVER pick a favorite. (learned that the hard way)
My in-laws are closer to me then my own family members.
I have a wonderful best friend....and so many great friends! That includes all of you that I have met in my blogging world. You brighten my days with your kind words....
I love to craft~ it is my peaceful place...I love that my family supports me in this venture. Thanks for welcoming me with open arms here. It is such a fun thing to be involved in. Hopefully it opens many more doors.
Hugs...and smiles...Tammy
