Little Patriots

I love, love this banner I made using the Little Patriots file from Treasure Box Designs! I can't wait to find the perfect spot to hang it for the summer! The glitter banner was found at Target for $3!! I am so mad that I didn't pick up more sets... they really are great! And they were perfect for the design! I did the red, white and blue banners to go on top of the silver and then popped up the little figures. I just noticed that I left off the stars on the wheels and on the little girl's dress!!! Gasp!!!! I will fix it and edit it later... how the heck did I do that??? LOL!! Anyway, here are some pictures and close ups!!!
Have  wonderful day!!!!

Military Salute....

I made this accordion style card to use with my patriotic summer decorating. It's going on my table or side cabinet with maybe some mason jars filled with daisies and little flags behind some of the panels. Our military is very important to me, these men and women give their all to protect us and give us our freedom that is such a gift!
Again, these are Treasure Box Designs.... such a great selection of adorable files to choose from!

Thank you for spending time at my blog.... and God Bless America!!!!


A Baby Princess Layout

I just finished creating a layout using Treasure Box Designs files. It's a baby girl layout, I just loved working with the designs and really don't have a specific use for it yet. Maybe I will finally get Kaitlyn's first pictures scrapped... she IS only eight for heavens sake!!! LOL!! I hand lettered the title and used a spot in the carriage so the vital statistics could be recorded... Of course I added glitter and sequins to make it sparkle more!!!

These files can be found here:
Have a wonderful day!! I may even be back to post some more of my design team projects today!

It's Been a Lonngggg Time....

Hello! Happy May! It's been such a long time since I've even thought about my little blog! So sad how life gets in the way of what you love to do! And the sad part is, it is just plain old life, nothing very exciting!!!! But I'm really going to try to make the effort to pay attention and keep up with this little place on the web!!!!
I love, love paper piecing and one really exciting thing that has happened is that I was asked to be on the Treasure Box Design team and the Digi Box Design team!!! I absolutely ADORE Dina's designs and have had so much fun playing with them! So..... I will start today with a lot of things I created using their files! The Digi Box Designs are digi stamps, I love coloring, too, so this has been double the fun! Here are some of the Digi Box Designs I worked with:

These were all colored using my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. They are just so cute! I have lots more to show, but thought I'd start here!!!! All these designs can be found at:
What I love about working with digital stamps is that you can size them however large or small you'd like, this one I made really large to use as a wall hanging:

Have a great day and I'll be back to show you some of the Treasure Box Designs paper piecings!

A sweet treat box...

Happy New Year... even though January is almost over!!!! I've been working on a couple little things and thought I would pop them on here.... the first is a little treat box that I first found on pinterest and then found some great directions here:  It was really easy to make. I had some white chipboard that I used for the base and then actually used my Tilda papers (gasp!) to cover it. The pulls are just wooden hearts I painted and glued on. I also made a little Joy banner and strung it with twine. This one is actually going to a swap partner, I plan on making more, they can hold all kinds of little treasures!
 Hope you like it!

It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas!

Oh wow... it's been forever since I've been blogging... just so much going on and not enough time to do everything I'd like. And now the holidays are upon us! We're going to my daughter's for Thanksgiving so I don't have much to do except make some pies and that's okay with me! Both of my kids love to cook, I don't know where it comes from... because I do NOT! Glad they do though!
I was at the Dollar Tree the other day and picked up this little angel:
I thought I could shabby her up a bit, so I added some lace pieces from a dress my daughter wore in a wedding many years ago, added some pearls and some rhinestones, a ribbon on the back and she is now ready for my tree! She has a silver bell underneath and I was originally going to remove it, but when she's hanging it really does look cute! And here she is all dolled up:

I also had some snowflakes and am going to pretty them up as well... I used a die cut from my Tilda paper and made a lace flower, added some flowers, beads and a bow and she's all done, too!

Thanks for visiting and I hope to be better about posting!
