"Spiffy" up that lampshade!!

Hi everyone!
It has been ages since I have been 
able to post.
But today I wanted to share some 
lampshades that I have been 
working on.

Lampshades are so boring!!
So I decided to "spiffy" them up to
match my newly decorated bedroom!

Here is the boring shade...

And here is my "spiffy'd" up version!

Many...MANY hours went into making them! 
But I love them!

Hope you do too!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate 
to leave it in the comments!

Thanks for stopping in!!

Happy anniversary!

This pop up card is from the idea
of Karen Burniston again.

It's one I recently did for my
daughter & son-in-law's
5th anniversary!


I hope you like this idea
and give it a try.

You tube her video for instructions 
and other cool ideas!

Another MR & MRS!!!!

So here is another wedding card!
One of my faves to make!

I got this idea from Karen Burniston.
She has some amazing pop-up cards.

The whole thing ends up being kind
of like a book.  I use a 'belly band' to keep
it all closed and together.

The accordion looking end pieces are quite finicky
but so worth the effort!  

I used clear vellum sheets to create
a back drop.
The "Mr & Mrs" is letters cut out with the cuttlebug
and then ran each through the Xyron and glittered 
them up!!

I hope you liked this pop up card and will give it a try.
Karen Burniston has many 
cool videos on youtube.

I will post other ones I have finished soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Mixed Media Canvas

Hi again!

I have been trying something new.
Mixed media on canvas.

I have been watching some very
talented people on youtube
and they have inspired me to try.

I am nowhere near as good as they are!!
But is so fun.
I hope to improve as I keep trying new things.

Here are two of my "newbie"

This first one I did for my mum.
She has similar colours in her craft room.
I at the end of it all...I added some 
polka dot feathers.
(Sorry no pic of that)
It looked better.

This next one I put in my guest room.
It looks quite gold in the photos...but in reality it isn't that gold. 

Well....Thank you for stopping by again.
I love this new art form and I hope you do too!

Custom Coasters

Hi again!
Just wanted to share some custom coasters
that I made for some "country"
folk in the family!

This is their "logo" that they  use on 
many things.

I had to print it onto acetate and then
carefully cut it out in order
to use it as my template on these 

These little trinkets I made using shrink dinks.
And I tied them to the gift at the end.

The next 3 photos are of coasters I made for
their kids.
These are not the finished coasters.
After this they were sanded smooth and sealed.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
Thanks for stopping in!

Marathon of card making!!

Hi again!
It has been ages since I have had
chance to come and post anything.

But I am here to show you somethings 
that I have been working on.

Cards...of course!

This first photo is of
some sympathy cards for 
a family of dear friends.
Used very sparkly papers.

The next 3 photos are cards I made 
after I did a marathon of Copic colouring!
The bear is with Prisma pencils though.

These next 2 photos are from the same
Stampin' up set.  I just used
some real buttons on the last pic.
It will definitely cost more for postage.  ;)

Now the next 3 are random ideas 
for cards.  The 2nd one is use of washi tape.
That's new for me.

These next 4 are fun friend cards. 
we can always send these to brighten 
someones day!

Now these next 3 are watercolored 
critters.  It's just blobs of 
pretty colour and then outlined 
with a fine tip zig pen.
I am so sorry that I can't 
remember where I saw this idea.
I need to write these down...I know!

These last pics are my fave!
Its a box card.
I coloured the mugs during my Copic marker 
marathon!  haha
If you youtube will
find so many cute ideas for this one.
I will post more of this type I'm sure.
It's my fave!

Sorry for the OVERLOAD of photos
on this post!!
It has just been so long since I have been here!

Thanks for stopping by!!
