Be You

Hello, sweet friends! I'm on the Live & Love Crafts blog today with a bit of crafty inspiration. Sandy gave us free reign in terms of theme this week, so I instantly grabbed my favorite purple goodies. :o)

My encouragement card showcases papers from Pion Design's Alma's Sewing Room. ♥︎
I'm thankful this uniquely beautiful collection is still in production. The card base and dress were made with the 6x6 Purple Wallpaper sheet, while the circular element is from Purple Room. I've had one of them for a year... it can be so hard to cut into pretty designs. My card base is a Go Kreate Large Frame Frilly #10 die, which is topped with a Joy! Crafts Lacey Square Frame.
Sandy's Pearl String encircles my focal point. Maya Road Pleat Tulle Trim provides an extra layer of texture beneath it, as well as along the bottom of the dress for wispy elegance. The dress form is a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. The Pion butterflies are fussy cut from the same collection. A Lace Heart Appliqué adds extra sweetness, which is topped with a Shabby Seam Binding double bow and a sparkling rose. Isabelle lace is nestled beneath.
The Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are dusted with Glamour Dust for the utmost sparkle. Beaded Pomegranate Apples in Vanilla Cupcake accent the arrangement, along with a Vintage Crown Pearl Pin and a darling Spool charm. Magnolia Heart Swirls flourish throughout.
My rolled-up Whimsical Designs sentiment (no longer produced) is stamped upon the 12x12 version of the Purple Wallpaper design. A peek inside shows the beautiful scissors pattern. This is such a lovely collection.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed weekend. :o)

Photo Inspiration at Live & Love Crafts!

Happy September, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful day. :o)

It's time for a fun new challenge at Live & Love Crafts! Sandy has created a gorgeous collage for photo inspiration, which you'll see just below. :o) This card will soon be off to encourage a dear friend.
Photo Inspiration:
Isn't it dreamy? Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics instantly came to my heart. I was inspired by the earthy color palette, abundance of trims, the sweet doilies in the shabby dream catcher, and the pop of pink from the flower.
The 1905 sheet serves as my base... the loveliest wood paper I've ever owned. Atop it is 1910, which I love for its sweet design and precious pops of pink. The butterflies are fussy cut from Coffee in the Arbor and layered. "Bloom where you're planted" is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2, which is heat-embossed in gold.
For additional touches of gold, the Prima Resin Square Frame and Wild Orchid Crafts metal corner are heat-embossed with Shabby White Frantage. Tucked within my WOC flowers are Magnolia Heart Swirls for love and a doily for softness. The sweetheart blossoms are sprinkled with Glamour Dust. Everything sweet must sparkle. ♥︎
Oh how I adore the dangling trims from the dream catcher! To reflect that, I layered five of my favorite LLC trims. :o) Shabby seam binding flutters alongside my floral arrangement, which leads to Rhinestone Lace (such a soft pink!), Shabby Rose Organza, Marguerite lace, and Juliette lace. I hope it brings a smile to my treasured friend's heart. ♥︎

I hope you'll play along with us this month! I'd love to see your take on the pretty collage. :o) Be sure to check out the creations from my talented teamies. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day. :o)
