You are loved!!

Hello & Happy Sunday Everyone!!

Today I'm on the BRI Blog, sharing  few Valentine's cards.
As you all know by now I love to mix stamps from different companies for my projects.

First up is a cute little Monster...
I love this little guy from Avery Elle stamps!
I created my background using the MFT- Distress Patterns stamp and several Distress inks.
The sentiment is from Honey Bee - Beautiful life stamp set.
 I also used some Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles and washi tapes.

Next up is a sweet Whale...
I used the same background technique with different shades of blue.
The cute whale and sentiment are from Avery Elle-Whale Hello stamp set.

 Fun and easy cards with a great mix of stamps and inks.
I used my favorite Wink of Stella for little sparkle!

These cards are for the following challenges...
Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog- love is in the air.
My Time to Craft - Love is all around.
Sweet Stampin - Valentine.

Make sure to check out the Butterfly Reflections,Ink store for all the great new crafty goodies.

Hello Everyone!!

Today I'm on SEI  blog sharing a fun organizational project.
Every year I reorganize my craft space round this time, as we all get lots of new craft supplies a little rearranging helps! 
I always look for fun and affordable ideas.

Here is a project I created for my craft room...
 I looooove owls.... so here is a fun pocket organizer!

I used SEI hoo's sweet chipboard owl kit , Denim sheet and beautiful  paper from Summer Woods collection for this project.

I covered few of the chipboard pieces with Summer Woods paper using Mod Podge.
I also use the tumble Dye Blue spray to color in few chipboard pieces too.

I lovethe Denim sheet , its like fabric...perfect for creating pocket!

To give my pocket a finished look, I applied tape adhesive on the back and folded the top edge. Then adhered the pocket with hot glue.
Assembled all the pieces and pocket to complete my organizer.

 Looks cute...isn't it ?

I will hang it on the wall .
 The pocket is perfect for storing , pencils, note pads and more...

Hope you like this idea!!!

Polar Pals!!!

Hello Everyone!!!

 I'm super excited to share my  Doodlebug  projects with you all for another year !!!

You all must have seen the suuuuuuuuuuuper cute Polar Pals collection already!!!
I have to admit that its one of most favorite DB collection ever.

I really didn't want to use any of the collection just wanted to keep it and treasure it forever.
For a week I had a hard time planning my project, every little icon in this collection is soooo adorable, I couldn't decide which one to hoard forever and which one to use.

Finally I came up with an idea to treasure this collection in a better way!

 I made a frame for my craft desk...this way I can just stare at it all the time.
I used a 8x8 shadowbox frame .
I love that the collection comes with beautiful 12x12 handwritten font print.
I trimmed it to fit my frame and embellished the bottom part of the frame with various stickers .

I also trimmed few printed icons from the collection and added it to create a lovely scene.
The handwritten font is just amazing!!!
I also added few Sprinkles. The shaped sprinkle Snowflakes are so pretty!!!

Next I created few cute Shaker tags using Reverse Confetti dies and DB-Polar Pals collection.

Love the Chunky Twines....the colors are amazing and matches this collection so beautifully!
I also used the matching Doodlebug sequins for my shaker element.

 How cute are these snow people???

I love dogs...and this Husky is the cutest thing ever!!!
 I also added the shaped sprinkles snowflakes!

Hope you all like these cute snow people and the critters!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Crafting!!!
