Top Note Dresser!

This is called a topnote dresser! I got the idea from, she does lots of beautiful work! I used old olive paper for the main boxes, and the pattern paper is from the urban garden DS paper pack. I used Close to my heart stamps for the top, then added some brads with cyrstals and some rhinstones for some sparkle.This picture shows the bottom draw which is made from a match box.
Here the lid is held open so you can see how the top works. I am hoping to make a few more of these as they would be great gifts to put either a small gift or some cards in!

Hope you like, if you have any questions feel free to ask! And thanks for looking!

Shadow Box Fun!!

I was shopping and found some cute little shadow boxes the other day. So today I played around with one and here is what I came up with! I started with a piece of old olive cardstock, then layered it with whisper white. I used the scalloped trim border to make it look pretty. I then used the Inspired by Nature stamp from Stampin up for the background, then layered some old olive ribbon over. Then I took the butterfly from God's Beauty and stamped it three times. I watercolored it in with old olive and taken with teal, let them dry, cut them out, and then put them together with pop dots to make it stand out. Finally I took the sentimate from the Happy Harmony stamp set and cut it out with a spellbinders labels 1, I used the die cut as a stencil to do the border, put it on with a pop dot and then added a button from designer buttons playground pack!
Here is a close up of it, I really like how the butterfly turned out and how it stands out off the page. Hope you like it, and if you have any questions let me know!

Some of my students cards!

Here are Donna cards she did, don't they look great? Donna tried out one of my new stamp sets from Close To My Heart called Something Splendid, that flower is amazing looking and I can't wait to use it more!
These are Melissa's, looking pretty hey? Melissa used the hedgehog from the stamp set Happy Forever also by Close To My Heart, isn't he adorable?
I am so proud of everyone in my class, the cards are looking awesome and I just wanted to show you some of the work they have done. They have been a true blessing to me and make me want tuesdays to come even sooner. Thank-you girls for being there and all our girly chats!
I will be posting some more pictures of students cards after next class, so Tracey, Erin or Charlene I guess its time for your cards to be showcased next!!

Some cards from class and finally the last candle!

Finally here is the last candle I made for the ladies breakfast at church. Sorry it has been so long, I have been super busy, and then forgot to put it on yesterday!
Ok so this isn't a candle or card, but its me and the love of my hubby!! I really missed him this time when he was gone for his 4 days of work! But he is off for 5 days now so I will get to spend lots of time with him!

These are the cards from class, I was so busy the night before and then so excited the morning of the card class that I only got three done. I was so excited because I had got my Close to my Heart package a day earlier than I thought it was coming, so we just made the three cards, played around and made a paper purse and then looked at my new stuff.
