Ours is a Fine Romance Pink Love Handmade Greeting Card

Hi ;)

This card measure 4 x 6 and sure is shiny :) It is layered on the front. The first layer is a sweet and sugared/glittered image of two bird. All done with a pink, red and white theme.

I then added a layer of hand punched lace and then added a coordinating pink satin ribbon. I then stamped the phrase "Ours is a fine Romance" onto coordinating pink cardstock and then layered it onto another sheet of cardstock which I then trimmed with scalloped scissors. I then inked the edges for dimension and for detail. The dark red cardstock on the bottom is bazzill paper and has a great texture.

On the inside of the card is blank and has two coordinating pink panels. You can add your own words or sentiments here.

If you have any questions, please send me a message/convo me.

To My Sweetheart, From.... Handmade Greeting Card

Hi :)

This card measure 4 x 6 and has a shabby chic feel. On the cover you will see that there is a pretty image of flowers and leaves and in the center there is a little postcard (printed onto the cardstock) that reads "To My Sweetheart" and it has a "From" space that you would fill in with your name. There is a hand embossed layered flower attached witha brass brad and two light pink grosgrain ribbons running across. I have used a distresser tool to all around the cardstock edges to keep up with the shabby feel of the card. On the inside is sweet and simple. In the center, I stamped the phrase "I Love You."

If you have any questions, please send me a message/convo me :)

Thanks for taking a look...

Hi :) There are 10 of these tags that measure 2 inches wide x 4 inches tall. They are all created on af/lf cardstock. I have stamped the "forever" design on the bottom with Timber Brown ink (af/lf) and have prestrung them with vintage ribbon. I have also inked the edges to keep up with the vintage feel, but did it lightly. Just enough for a tint and a little detail & definition.

If you have any questions, please send me a message/convo me.

Also, if you would like these done in a different color palette, size or shape, you can also send me a message and I can create a custom listing of tags just for you.

Thanks for looking ;)

Stamped "With Love" Tags Pink Polka Dot

Hello :)

There are 12 of these cute little "with Love" tags.... or toppers, you pick.

They measure 1 1/2 inches in diameter and they are handpunched. I then stamped "With Love" in the center and inked the edges slightly for a touch of detail. You can have these just as they are for toppers or little "tuck in" tags or I can easily punch holes and add cream colored string/twine to them for you. You just let me know when you order.

These would be cute for any handmade gift that you give, or maybe you can tuck inside a greeting card. If you pack a lunch for someone, these would be cute to tuck inside their sack or lunchbox. Let them know that you made it with love.

The front of these are a very pretty pink with a light pink polka dot and the backs are a goldenrod shade of yellow with a variety of dots. You can see them in the photo.

If you have any questions, convo me.
They are AF/LF and they are archival safe if using for memory keeping.

Thanks for taking a peek :)

The Cottage Home: Summer Fabric Rag Wreath Tutorial

The Cottage Home: Summer Fabric Rag Wreath Tutorial I've been dabbling with this in my own home. I am just glad to find out that I've been doing it right, lol :) I am 100% totally self taught, there aren't classes close to where I live for anything. lol.

Cupcakes, Tea and Chocolate Girly Double Page Layout Pink 

This is a double page 12 x 12 layout. The main theme is sweets and tea (or cocoa). I have hand drawn my bear, teacup, teapot, mouse, cookies and more! I then paper pieced them together and made them come to life with ink, chalks other 3 dimensional items.

On the first page you will see 3 photo mats. Behind the top photo mat there is a double sided pull out tag. At the top of the tag, is a "popped" off embellishment that I made. It is layered with the word sugar and an image of a cupcake with the word frosting. It is inked on the edges for dimension. All the photo mats are layered onto a darker coordinating green and a chocolate color. The second photo mat to the left has the same mat topper as the tag. There is a layered flower that I made. I have hand embossed all the flower layers. Above that is an embossed & glittered paper with a chocolate theme. Above that is an image of 3 sweet little cupcakes. At the bottom you will see my little bear and she is sitting in the tea cup wearing a cupcake. The cupcake is frosted and has a glittery cherry on top. The tea cup has prima flowers and I made the leaves to match. I added pearls in the center of the flowers and I also added little purple pearls at the bottom of the teacup. They are hard to work with, lol. There is also another flower that I have embossed and to the left is my all time face little cupcake. It has sprinkles & TEENY TINY little cream colored pearls and organza ribbon. There is also "frosting."

On the second page there is also three photo mats. The one at the top has the same chocolate colored paper (the circle one) and has little adornments all around it with the flowers, layered cake image, pearls, and a paper pieced cupcake. The top of the bottom photo mat has the same lave inspired topper. The right photo mat has a little cupcake embellishment and the word chocolate at the bottom. Then you have my little teapot. The teapot is fully hand drawn and then pieced together. I added three prima flowers and pearl centers. I have also made the leaves to coordinate the page. There is another one of my hand embossed flowers. The top of the teapot has a large creamy pearl button that i have taken silk embroidery thread and wove it through till you cannot see the button holes anymore. Then there is my favorite little mouse! I had so much fun creating the mouse! The little mouse is eating a cupcake that is frosted with a cherry on top. And did you see his little whiskers? lol. I love it!
