Exciting News! Paper Nest Dolls!

I have some exciting news to share!  Christine of Paper Nest Dolls has asked me to join
her Design Team!  I am over the top excited!  I love her stamps and she has a large selection to choose from.  So without further ado...
Here is my first card using French Girl Avery!  Isn't this stamp adorable?  I loved coloring her up!  She was just released yesterday.  She has socks but I added the fish net look to them.
I used some Carta Bella paper and mixed it Teresa Collins paper.  I added the Eiffel towel die cuts and a new LaLaLand wire die cut.  I hope you like her!
Go to if you want to own her!
Keep checking back because you don't want to miss out on all the new releases!

Kraftin Kimmie Hot Stuff Challenge

This is my take on Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Hot Stuff Challenge.  I think
a bride is beautiful and this Saturated Canary Stamp is definitely sexy!
I wanted to use a stamp that I already had.  I colored her up with my
growing supply of Copic Markers.  I used Teresa Collins paper.  It is an
old line of Posh and Timeless paper!  I added the angel that I had made
earlier with some Ice Resin and white paint.  I sprayed the angel with some
Lindy's Stamp gang to give it some sparkle and added a ring.
I hope you like her!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamp Card

This is a retired stamp but Kim says that she can bring it back if your interested.  It is called Goldilocks.  I think it is so cute and I like the sentiments that come with it. 
This is the card that I came up with.  I colored the stamped image with my Copic markers.  I did add eyelids and pupils to my Goldilocks girl.  I am taking a coloring class at Kit and Clowder.  It is an online class and I am loving it.  I also add some flowers and a bear that I picked up at the candy mercantile store.  It was a cupcake topper.  I hope that you like her.

Paper Nest Doll Card

I've had quite a bit of time in my craft room lately while I heal from a fractured ankle.  I'm definitely on the mend now.  The boot is off and I am able to walk instead of hobble.  I would do it all again just so I could have this much time to craft!  Lol!

Anyway, I created this card using Christine's Paper Nest Doll Pisces image!  She asked me to be her guest designer and I gladly accepted.  I started off by coloring the image with my Copic Markers and then cut her out.  I made the shell shape out of Sculpey Clay in white that I colored with some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in a teal color from her Industrial Chic set.  Added some beaded sprays and shells and a Happy Birthday Banner!  I hope you like her!

You can find many other stamps and digital images for instant download at her site!  Go check her out!  Tell her I sent ya!

You can't go wrong with Burlap and Vintage Christmas images!

We are camping at the beach and I have been sewing up a storm.
These are a few of my finished projects.
I used some Vintage images from
Cottage Rose Graphics on Etsy that I printed onto fabric.
I used the image "Pink Santa Vintage Shabby Christmas Large"
for this large pillow.  I added vintage laces and the pink doilies that
I had been making over the last few weeks.  I also did some beading around
doilies.  The beads are clear so you may not be able to see them.
 This image is called "Pink Noel French Santa Roses Large"
I kept this pillow a little more simple. Again using vintage laces.
I did put zippers in both pillows.  As soon as we gathered up the table and
pillows that we used to take these photos it started pouring! Perfect timing!
 I made this burlap stocking and added some vintage hand
crotched lace that I took off some old linen.
This image is called "Pink Christmas Ice Skates and Roses Large"
Please mention my name to Debbi from Cottage Rose Graphics!
Tell her I sent ya!
She has a tutorial on her blog on how to print onto fabric
Thanks for stopping by!

The Graphics Fairy strikes again!

Lately I have been seeing Lace Books and Lace Wall Hangings but
I wanted something more useful for me so...
I decided on this pillow. 
I used the "Wax Paper Method" to print right onto some muslin fabric.
So super easy.  You can find out how to do it here.
Then I grabbed lots of the laces that I had in shades of white.
Next I just started layering them over some left over
fabric that I had from making slip covers for my sofa's.
It's a canvas fabric that I wash about 5 times to soften up before I
cut out the pieces for the slip covers.
It is 20x20 inches in size and I love how it turned out.
Since I put the crown on my dining table and have them displayed
throughout my house, I decided on this image from The Graphics Fairy site. 
If you have not visited Karen's site, you are missing out.
You can visit the site here:
If you want to see the image that I used, you can find it here.
Here it is in it's home but you never know I may have to put
it in the bedroom!

Annie Sloan meets The Graphics Fairy

I have been wanting to paint my dining room table since I purchased it on clearance at a local Antique Store a few years ago.  I decided it was a perfect time to try out the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  I used Old White paint color.  I did sand the top of the table but you don't have to when you use her paint.  I used 2 coats. It was very easy to work with.  I still need to put a seal coat on it.
 I wanted the design to work whether I had the table leaves in or not so I had to alter the image that I got from one of my favorite sites. It is from The Graphics Fairy!  She posts tutorials and images for free!  I drew it free hand.  This is without the leaves in.  It is a 58" round.

 I love crowns and have them throughout my home so because I am a daughter of "The King" I added a crown that is from The Graphics Fairy.  I printed it out on 8 x 11 paper and then I enlarged it as I painted it because I needed it to fill the space better. This is with both leaves in at 58" x 90".
 I added "Oh taste and see that the Lord is good" within the ribbon area since it is our dining table.  

This is the image that was my inspiration.  You can see that I changed it up a bit.  Go check out her site!
