I had the most delightful time making this project.

Maybe it was the paper I used?
All my paper products on this are from the new Authentique Paper line called Uncommon.
I have been chosen to be one of their designers, so I am practicing using their out of this world, yummiest, most beautiful papers!
Hmmmm, think I like them?? ..Yep, I do!!
But let’s talk dies now..

I used so many Cheery Lynn Designs dies on this, I don’t even know where to begin.

I had this chipboard frame, and covered it with paper and then used the following dies to embellish and frame things.

This frame is in 3 sections and I did each section differently.
Here you can see the Authentique Paper Unity itty bitty stamp set called Family is Forever.

I used the Ribbon Eyelet Border die to make that cute accordion flower, shown above.
Below is the other stamp from the Family is Forever set.
You can also see the shimmer of my Funky Film from Grafix Arts.

I also took another cut Ribbon Eyelet Border and cut it in half and used it as a frame.
If you look at the 1st panel below, you can see what I am talking about.

Here is a side view so you can see al the detail.
This was so much fun to see and look so elegant in person.

Like I said, I had so much fun with this project and it was because I had fabulous paper and the Best Dies in the world to work with.
I hope you enjoyed my project today, see you next week.

Grafix Arts…have you tried this stuff?

1 Aug

I have been using Grafix Arts supplies a little here and there in my recent posts.

Here is a look at the items I am talking about.

These projects that you might have already seen, I have used either FUNKY FILM or the METALLIC FOIL BOARD.

The FUNKY FILM is what really shimmers in these projects and has a bit of pattern, whereas the METALLIC FOIL BOARD has no pattern.

Now let’s move on to my current projects.  My first projects, these mini pin cushions utilize the following products:

FUNKY FILM, METALLIC FOIL BOARD and SHRINK FILM.

 This pin cushion is made from a tiny picture frame.

I made these adorable head pins with stamps and the SHRINK FILM.

 The stamps here are from the My Time Made Easy, SO FORTUNATE set.

This next pin cushion I had seen made on The DIY Dish.

These headpin  flowers are made with a die cut, BLACK SHRINK FILM  and glass beads.

 The embellishments around both are a mixture of FUNKY FILM and METALLIC FOIL BOARD.

This next project utilizes GRAFIX ART’S SHRINK FILM.

Again I am using some stamps from the My Time Made Easy SO FORTUNATE set.

The black flowers are a stamp from an {ippity} set called FLOWERS FRIENDS PRICELESS.

Again using glass beads to embellish and everything is attached with jewelry findings and wire.

Next is a Halloween decoration.

The base, is a HUGE diecut and is all done with GRAFIX ARTS CHIPBOARD.

This project stars the newline of paper by AUTHENTIQUE PAPER called GLOWING.

Using FUNKY FILM in the COPPER BRUSH and PEACH RAIN colors that went perfectly with the GLOWING line.

Lots of beads, mini banners and lots of sparkle from the FUNKY FILM make this a delight to look at.

Look at that PEACH RAIN FUNKY FILM, isn’t it gorgeous?

This Christmas Holiday decoration was made with METALLIC FOIL BOARD and die cuts from GRAFIX ARTS CHIPBOARD.

The CHIPBOARD is very sturdy and the FOIL BOARD is gorgeous when embossed, see the stars?

I accented these with AUTHENTIQUE PAPER’S WONDER line.

 Here we have a little ensemble of rainbow fun.

I have used the same stamps and SHIRINK FILM as mentioned earlier.

Up close picture of the hair barrettes.

Close up of the shoes.

These barrettes are so bright and fun!

 My daugher LOVES them!

 Here is a jewlery set fit for a princess or ladybug loving mom like ME!

I used some miscellaneous stamps on hand and SHRINK FILM.

 There are so many endless possibilities with the SHRINK FILM.

 Close up of the ladybug SHRINK FILM tile.

Oh, and look at this TINY ring  I made!!

 Can you believe how precious that is?

Here we have a banner that shows off GRAFIX ARTS METALLIC FOIL BOARD.

 I mixed the foil board and material for a really unique looking banner.

I love the die cut fruit and flowers with the FOIL BOARD.

 Very eye catching and colorful!

 I used the FOIL BOARD and die cut the trim for all these banner pieces and then adhered the borders with hot glue.

I think the trim gives this an added sweetness, agree?

 One more look!

 I ran out of time..so here are some GRAFIX ARTS SHIRNK FILM stars, you might see in an upcoming project!!

 If you have not visited the GRAFIX ARTS website, you have got to take a look at all their unique projects!

There is a store locater on the website and also a link to purchase things online.

Have a TERRIFIC monday!

I Heart {ippity}, I really do!

27 Jul

I adore all DT’s I am on and the I Heart {ippity} team has been so much fun.

Already I feel like I have some life long friends and I know I would adore them all in person.

As for the stamps?  So much fun!

Today I am using a stamp from the set called

DELIGHTFUL LITTLE THINGS

Isn’t this a great set?

Here is what I came up with.

This was taken at night..I never seem to finish my things in daylight anymore.  So I got up today and took a daylight picture too!

I really focused on circles because I want to enter this into the Circles Circles challenge on The Unity Stamp Co. website.

The picture on my card is a hand-made MOO card.

Moo’s are usually one-dimensional, but I printed my items out separately so I could layer the card.

I thought the image of my little angels toes went perfectly with this phrase.

I had so much fun making this card.

I made a delightful mess I am sure Candace would faint if she saw!

Again I have used lots of products from GRAFIX ARTS.

I used some FUNKY FILM and some METALLIC FOIL BOARD on the background circles.

I adore these products.  They give my cards and scrapbook projects an extra flair and shimmer!

Friday Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs and Grafix Arts

21 Jul
Today I am going to give you a mini tutorial.
Very mini as I will show you the 1st couple of steps and
then you get to do your own thing past what I share.
I saw this done by
Rhonna Farrer, she calls them Lollipops.
Mine are called CUTE FLOWER ON A STICK!
I am so creative, I just can’t help it!
What makes mine unique is that mine are made with some really fun papers from Grafix Art called:
To start the CUTE FLOWER ON A STICK project, you will need some paper cut into 4 x 5 inches. I used 4 pieces of the SILVER METALLIC BOARD.
I also used my Wittle Weaver 1/2″ strip die with the Thin Embossing Pad.

By using the embossing pad, this embosses perfectly measures fold marks for these flowers.
First step, you guessed it, do the accordion fold with all 4 pieces of paper.

Next, fold each accordion in half.
Glue the center seam of each piece to create these fan shapes.

Next glue all four fans together and look a Jello mold!!
Now from here you can do whatever you want, however,
I do not recommend pouring Jello into it!

I used so many dies on this, where do I begin?

After I got the Silver Flower Base all formed, I started by putting a white HEARTLAND AMERICANA Heart down and then trimmed the white heart with the Polka Dot Pink paper.

After that I used the FANCIFUL FLOURISH and cut it out with the sparkly green FUNKY FILM.


I used an assortment of papers and more sparkly FUNKY FILM that is pinkish peach with the JUDY’S BLOOM die.

I got this cute little box from my local Ben Franklin Craft store. They have these bins that are full of $1.00 items and this little box (originally blue) was one of my finds in the dollar bins.

I covered the box with matching paper and FUNKY FILM flowers. I poured rice in a baggie and made some tulle puffs to disguise the rice.

I then stuck my CUTE FLOWER ON A STICK in the rice and created this adorable centerpiece.

Wouldn’t this be fantastic as a centerpiece for a little princess?
My princess thinks so!
Have a great weekend, be sure to visit us and see what the other Design Team members are up to!
