Prima Doll Totes

Imitation is suppose to be the highest form of flattery well I hope my friend Ann agrees. The bag above was made by my friend Ann for my last birthday. I just loved it so much I wanted to make one for another friend who I thought would love one too. Ann's bag had such lovely details and a great shabby chic look and one of my favorite Prima dolls. My bag did not have quite the same details but not bad for first try. I used a Prima doll also along with some lace and I also was able to use my portrait cutting machine to cut fabric letters for the back. The new 2014 dolls are now available be sure to take a look at them. Thanks for stopping by

Julie Nutting Dolls

I am obsessed with the prima dolls by Julie Netting it is a perfect fix for the little girl in me that still wants to play with paper dolls. These two cards were done for milestone birthdays sweet 16 and 21 each has a unique look that I think fits each age. The card fold is a accordian which really helps to highlight the dolls accordion cards are 5.5 x 12 but I made mine 7x12 to accomodate the dolls height. I know a lot of people just use the dolls for tags but there are so many more possibilities which I hope to share  in the next few weeks with you. I think double sided paper works best with the accordion but any paper will work.

Scary Pop Up Cards

Boo !!! I have some fun Halloween projects to share with you today first up is a set of pop up cards I made using the silhouette and a design from the online store. This easy pop up card can easily be changed for any season or event. I altered my design cover and inside images from the original to make them a little more original.
Now what is Halloween without a trick or treat bag? This is a split personality bag the one side is your mild midnight scene while the flip side is your horror side. I used the silhouette to cut the house and grave yard, stamped the flying witch and sentiment. The horror side was done with clipart with some added 3-D effects and stickles.

Paint Chip Cards

Hope you all are enjoying some beautiful fall weather. Today I am sharing two cards I did for my card club.
Our challenge was to make a card using paint chips from the paint section of the store. For those of you who can't quite figure out what I am talking about it is the paint swatches you get to take home to match your decor. I guess I should thank Walmart, Homedepot and Lowes 
for the contribution to our challenge (smile)
Now to my cards I used the circle paint chips for my card  the circles are already on the paper I just embossed over them for a more textured look. The scalloped circles are spellbinders and the stamped sentiment is from the $1 bin. The pink card has a store bought embellishmentand and the same spellbinder
scalloped circles. hope this inspires you to take a trip to the paint section for your next card.

100 Years

Today I am sharing one of my favorite images I just love this sweet senior couple by Mo Manning at digital pencil too she has the most adorable images. I have often used this couple for Valentines cards,Anniversary and this time for my husbands birthday last month. I paired it with a favorite verse, colored it with copics and added a sentiment inside. Masculine cards are my least favorite to do so I think I will make a few more to try to improve Thanks for dropping in Alicia

Magnolia Birthday Card 3

Well it has been quite awhile since my last post but hopefully today's card will make up for that lasp in post. This is a card for my grandaughter who is turning three and is having a fairy party. I thought this magnolia stamp would be perfect for the theme of the party. This little fairy is blinged to the max with glitter and sparkle.The card is actually a z fold, her wings are from a large butterfly I found in Micheals. Copics give this little fairy her color, the tiny flowers are made by hand using a die from the silhouette store and then quilled into a flower. Hope you enjoyed this little lady and hope to be back soon with more cards.
