On The Road with Fred She Said!

 Hello Friends,

I always wished I would of learned to ride a motorcycle! I have ridden on the back of a few, and have enjoyed the wind in my hair.. 

I am sharing my super fun slim line card using the fabulous images from Fred She Said,  Afternoon Ride. This digital sheet is jam packed with motorcycles!

I used brick scrapbook paper for the background and of course added some great graffiti, by stamping here and there. Fussy cut out the motorcycles, adhere to the card. Stamp the sentiment of your choice and cut it out to brick and adhere to the front of the of the card, for one fun greeting card!!

Blooming Beauties with Gecko Galz

 Welp, I thought it would be Spring in Ohio, apparently I was wrong! Mother Nature delivered a cold blow these last few days, with 8 inches of snow one day, and 32 degree temps, the next day. Yikes! All of my blooming trees, bushes, have been bite by Mother Nature. However on that note I want to share my two projects for the Gecko Galz blog!!

First up is my Blooming Beauty  project made with  Barouqe Garden ATC Collection and Pixie Play Jewel It Collage Set




Using the circle ATCs, I punched them out and matted them on heavier card stock for strength, I punched out the pixies I chose to use and pop dotted them on top of the circle ATCs creating a flower if you will. Using a leave die cut, I added leaves here and there behind the pixie and behind the ATC for added dimension. I happen to have a beery like die cut on a stem and added a few of those here and there to the flower for added interest. I then hot glued my flowers on paper straws, of course you can use what you have on hand. My vase is a collection of 3 toilet paper rolls, that I always have on hand, as they make great items in creating process, as you can see! I painted them, inked them, and sprayed them with glitter spray, after they were dry I hot glued them together for a one of kind of vase, and save the world from 3 lonely paper rolls! I had a die cut label with room for a ribbon, adding that to the front of my vase. I then hot glued my flower stems here and there inside the rolls, and finished off with some paper shreds. Thoughts on my project???





My second project for the Month celebrating Blooming Beauties ! is a flip book or also called a waterfall card/book.  I made good use of Gecko Galz Floral Dreams Collage Set, perfect for my Blooming Beauties flip book!



Following instruction for a Waterfall card, I cut all pieces, inked the edges, trimmed all my Beauties I chose to use and ink all edges. I then choose my background papers trimmed them to sized and ink all edges. Next came assembly, and finally I dressed up the cover of my flip book!









Be sure to embellish each page of your book with cogs, labels, flowers, book plates and such for a beautiful Blooming Beauties project !

 Happy Spring!! 

Well at least it is Spring in my neck of the woods! There is so much I love about Spring, the exit of winter is a big one, LOL, I have never like winter, not even as a kid. Not sure what I am doing in Ohio!

It is my day up on the Gecko Galz Blog and wanted to share a few fun makes with you . Let me mention that I keep a huge scrap collection, except for the gorgeous images from Gecko Galz,  these next 4 makes have been crafted out of my scrap collection!  Save those scraps!!  

Trio of  round easel Easter cards, I have used both sheets of the Easter Tokens



Using die cuts I cut my various circles need for the card, and pattern paper from my scrap collection! I created my 3 cards  and then put them together, using pop dots for added dimension. Fussy cut the images you want for the front of cards, pop dot your image, add a bow, maybe some jewels, flat book pearls and finish them off with spattering of white acrylic paint mixed with a bit of water! I use a very fine and small round brush for my spatters. Add a bumper to hold your easel card up and your done!









Next up for our monthly theme Walk With Nature, I created a beautiful burlap covered MDF tag, making use of  a image from the Floral Dreams Set



This make is pretty straight forward, die cut a background, pop dot the image, and go wild with fabric flowers, die cut leaves, add a bow, flat backed pearls and a couple vintage straight pins to complete the look!



Thank You for stopping by, oh, and be sure to return April 22, when I make good use of the rest of the Floral Dreams image set, in a flip book!

Upcycled Tins with Gecko Galz

 Welcome Back Friends,

It is my day on the Gecko Galz Blog. I wanted to share with you a cute project I made using the Retro Jewel It Set, to create a couple of catch all tins! These two tins sit on my dressing table, one holds pins to my hot rollers and the other is empty as of yet.


                                                                       Isn't this set so darn cute??

Here's what I did, I cleaned up the tins, removing any adhesive and wiped them down and dried them. After printing out the images I wanted use. I punched out background paper to cover the top of the tin, then punch out the images I choose to use. Adhere the background paper and the image to the top of the tins. Here's where it gets fun, time to embellish! The sky's the limit here. You could run beads around the edge of the top, add flowers, pearls, ribbon, you name it! I added a thin layer of clear sealant on top of the tin for a little shine and protection from wear and tear.



Thanks for visiting, until next time....
