Welcome Baby Calendar

Hello crafters, happy Sunday!

Just a quick post today.
One of my younger co-workers is going on maternity leave soon.
She is expecting her first baby, a boy, how exciting!
I wanted to give her something special,
something interactive, and a toy for her :^)
So, I made another perpetual calendar with a baby theme.


I water colored the images with Distress Ink pads.
The moon was stamped on Magnolia DP, then colored.
I dabbed glitter glue here and there to add some sparkles.
I made the dices and picture frame using air-dry clay.
Sentiments were stamped and punched out with SU ticket punch.


 DPs are Magnolia.
Dies used are Magnolia, Spellbinders, Go Kreate and SU.
Stamps are Magnolia, LOTV (postcard) and SU (sentiments).
I used the LO from The Sketchy Challenges.


 The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
White and blue Ric Rac tiny ribbons, blue fluted edge sheer ribbon,
25mm Deborah cluny lace, ivory Jute mesh ribbon,
natural button twine, blue and pale lemon blossom flowers.




I had fun making this calendar. I hope Diana likes it.
I have made these calendar before, here and here.

Ballerina Tilda

Hi Everyone!

The weather is lovely here in Vancouver this week. 
The temperature is finally warming up, summer is just around the corner.
One more week, the kids will be out of school.

Today, I have a 3D project to share with you- a mini jewelry box.
I wanted to use some of my "old" stuff in my stash,
Some of these items are actually brand new still, 
they have not been used since I bought them.


The image I used is Ballerina Tilda from the Fairy Tale Collection.
I water colored her with Distress Ink pads.
The glitters on her dress and tiara does not show very well.
If you click on the picture, you might see it better.


The trellis in the background is die cuts using 
Grand Gothic Stained Glass die from Memory Box.
When I bought it last year, I thought I could use it as a trellis.

I cut out 3 pieces, 2 white and 1 pink.
I then trimmed off the center portion of the pink die cut
and glued it between the 2 white pieces.

I frantaged the trellis front and the butterflies.
I added a little crystal bauble to the match box drawer.
Other dies I used are from Magnolia, Memory Box, Spellbinders and SU.


The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
18mm Lucy white cluny lace, 8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace,
white organza rose ribbon, ivory pearl and crystal branch,
WOC white lily flower, ivory/lemon sparkle rose,
10mm pale pink open rose.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs,
Katie

Cali Girl

Happy Sunday crafty friends!
A quick post to share a DT ard with you today.

We have a new Card Challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
The challenge theme this week is ~ Add a die cut.


This image is called Cali Girl by Hannah Lynn from Crafts and Me.
I have colored her with Copic markers.
I just love the way her hair flows.


I kept the card pretty simple as I wanted the pretty image to stand out.
A thin layer of cheese cloth and a piece of delicate cluny lace 
were placed in between DPs to further soften the look.

I also top stitched and distressed all paper edges, and 
added some Shabby White Frantage on the roses and DP.


DPs are from Pion Design Fairytale Spring collection.
Leave die is by Marianne Design.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
35mm Pale pink Trellis rose, white Lily flower, 
Sophie white cluny lace, and cheese cloth.
