Beauty of the Heart

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a chunky journal page I created for a Christmas gift for Jean Moore our leader over at the Altered Pages.com.¬†

Lyneen had each of the design team members create a page. We each had to mail our pages to Lyneen which she in turn bound the pages into an adorable chunky book. This is what I came up with. I used product that I had received from a past Mailbox Muse kit.

The saying is a rubber stamp from Unity and the zipper are the only things from my own personal stash I used to finish off this gift for Jean.

You can go here and see each page that was created by each design team member. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Lily Paper Doll and Some Exciting News!!!

Hi everyone!!! I’m back from vacationing at the beach. I wish there was some way we could live there permanently. I love the laid back, flip flops everyday and ocean breezes‚Ķmaybe one day it will happen??? ūüôā
I have some exciting news to share though…I have been asked to be a part of The Mailbox Muse Design Team and…of course…I said yes since I love ALL thing vintage!!! You can join the club for the Mailbox Muse kits which gives you a discount on the kits and product at Altered Page web site, video access and other specials for a year too. 

Also I would like to share a paper doll I created using the Lottie Stamp set from Pink Persimmon. I stamped out her head, arms and legs and then printed her body and dress pattern on white cardstock since I wanted her body to be sturdy. I cut everything out, used brads to attach the arms and legs to the body. Added a little blush to her cheeks and colors her lips with one of my markers.
Next I traced her dress onto Purple Flowers Glitter Cardstock and then cut out. I embossed the skirt with the flower embossing folder from Once Upon a Princess Cuttlebug set. I added lace, sequin and Purple Dew Drops to the dress and topped it off with a lily digis that I fussy cut and added Crystal Stickles to make it pop. I printed the lilies from the Altered Pages Vintage Easter Greeting college sheet. 

To attach the dress to the¬†paper doll I used baker’s twine which I adhered underneath the lace on the sleeves of the dress. This way I can chance the clothes of my little paper doll.¬†

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoying creating!!!
