Christmas Bell

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, where the DT has been sharing favorite occasions this week. It's time for more festivity because Christmas is my favorite everything. ♥︎
Showcasing the beautiful church from Pion Design's Christmas in Norway collection, I created a bell for my mom to hang from her Christmas tree or wherever she pleases. The church was cut out with a Spellbinders Standard Circle (small) and layered on a Picot Edge Circle. I paired it with papers from Maja Design's A Gift for You, as the red is such a lovely contrast and I adore the Christmas stars.
A dusting of snow with flecks of gold were added to most of the papers via Shabby White Frantage. A shabby 10mm Jingle Bell was used for the clapper, which is attached with Natural Hemp. A wintry breeze of Shabby Chiffon trim ruffles around the base, centered with Sunflower Pearl trim. The Cheery Lynn Designs poinsettia die is centered with Frosted Berries and surrounded with Flower Sprays and Pomegranate Apples (in Wine Pudding and Vanilla Cupcake). The snowflakes are also from Cheery Lynn.
The back is finished off with snowy trim and sweet Christmas birdies. ♥︎ I hope she enjoys it. :o)

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :o)

Fairies & Angels at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, my treasured friends! I hope you're having a lovely week. :o)

It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and this time it's all about Fairies and Angels. I opted for a Christmas card with my favorite angel paper. :o) I was very short on time and my lingering arm issue has been painful, but I'm grateful I was able to make a little something yesterday. ♥︎
My background papers are from Pion Design's Silent Night collection, which I combined with some of my favorite trims and pearls from Live & Love Crafts. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Christmas Chalkboard (no longer produced) and the pretty snowflake is a Magnolia die.
The pretty poinsettia is a Cheery Lynn Designs die, which has been sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage and centered with Frosted Berries. My fancy 'snow drift' was made with the Marianne Design Fancy Edge die, which is covered in Glamour Dust (crystal and gold). The Memory Box Frosted Spruce Tree is accented with Polar White Flower Soft. My base was made with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles, using Pion's Palette Grey 1.

Be sure to check out the inspiration from my sweet and talented teamies. ♥︎ Thank you for fluttering on by! Have a beautiful day. :o)

Carousel Horse Cuteness

Happy Friday, my sweet and sparkly friends! I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today with my take on Sandy's theme of Cute as a Button. It's been an especially sweet week on the blog! ♥︎

I was inspired to use the cutest paper collection: Maja Design's Vintage Baby. This is for a mother who recently welcomed a very special baby boy into the world. He faces incurable health problems, but we are praying (and believing) he will survive.
The only paper not from Vintage Baby is the dark blue, which is from Pion Design Palette (Blue III). I remain enamored with these darling papers. Coco lace and Sunflower Pearl Trim line the center, which is accented with sweet buttons. A magical occasion always warrants elegance, right?! :o)
The carousel horse is a Forever Memories For You cut file, which I've embellished with pearly goodies. Pearl Lace with Beads trims the canopy while a Pearl String wraps around the pole. I cut off a Sunflower Pearl for the top.

Dangling from the Maya Road Love Heart Clip is one of LLC's newest embellishments: Chain Charm "Leaves." The sweet fluttering leaves and chain are so beautiful that I opted to let it shine on its own. ♥︎
My card base is Go Kreate's Frame Frilly #10 die. The darling sentiment and its metal die layers are from My Craft Spot (no longer produced). I hope this lifts her heart and encourages her to cling to our faith which promises that Love Never Fails.

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