Thank You So Very Much Card- WOW

We had our group post over on the WOW blog this weekend.  Here is the card that I made.  Now go check out what all the other super talented ladies have come up with.


I used the Earthtone Blueberry embossing powder and the Brocade and Gratitude stamp for my "Thank you so very much" card.  I also used May Arts ribbons for the leaves and the silver metallic ribbon at the top.

Spring Canvas- May Arts and MLS



I thought I would share a cute little (8x10) canvas that I made today.  I made it from some scraps of paper from My Little Shoebox and some May Arts ribbons.  It really is very simple to do, I used Mod Podge to glue down my papers and then to make them a little softer I Mod Podged a layer of tissue paper, which not only made it softer but added some texture.  I then added my embellishments, rub-ons, buttons, doodles and stickers.  You can use up some of those lovely ribbon scraps that you just can’t get rid of.  I used 389-18-31, 390-38-09 and SK01.

I really just had fun with this and gave it more of a spring look, I think that I am going to do a series adding summer, winter and fall to hang up in my Daughters room.   I hope you have enjoyed my little project today and I would love to see what you come up with.  Leave me a link and I will go check it out.

Spring time Butterflies 10 minute project


Here is my most recent post at the ThermOWeb blog  go check it out

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for spring.  I saw these very cute butterflies in one of the new spring children’s catalogs that comes in the mail.  They could be pinned on to what ever you were wearing and they were made out of fabric.  So I thought that I would try it.  So I got out a PeelNStick sheet, and some chipboard shapes from my scrapbooking stash.  I traced around a couple of butterflies and now the hard part, picking out fabric ;)
Now that you have your fabric picked out you then stick the PeelNStick on the fabric and cut around the desired shape.  I also wanted my to bend a little bit so I put a small piece of wire between the fabric and it gives it just a touch of movement.
Now that you have your pieces cut out you can layer and embellish them.  I stacked 2 of them together and added some pearl stones on them.  As you can see I made the blue one into a hair clip, that my daughter just loves and uses every day.
The Orange one I made into a pin that she can put on her clothing.  In the first picture we added it to her shirt and the second one we put it on one of her decorative pillows that she has in her room.  I think it is going to stay on the pillow for now.
Thank you so much for looking at my project today, just imagine all that you could make with these super fun and quick peelNSticksheets.
Have a great week,
