Fun in the Sun Blog Hop

16 Jun

Welcome to the Joys Life FUN IN THE SUN BLOG HOP.

I have made 2 things to inspire you with.

The first is a home decor piece.

I am using the set called Sweet Popsicle Puns.

 All of my paper and canvas pieces are from Canvas Corp.

 You can see that I used the stamp and stamped directly on the twill tape and canvas pieces.

I made this on a piece of durable chipboard and it measures 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

 Aren’t these colors just perfect for a nice summer decorative piece?

The next thing I did was this adorable card.  Again all my papers are by Canvas Corp.

 The sentiment is also from the Sweet Popsicle Puns set.

 I think this is just so delicate with the tiny bathing suits.

The phrase is just perfect for this quick a clean card.

 I would love to receive a card like this, wouldn’t you?

 Now…the fun still goes on..

Gel A Tins – The Simple Life card

19 Apr

I have made a very clean and simple card for you today.

I am using the set called WILD THINGS.

This has got to be my favorite Gel A Tins set!

I decided to go simple with my colors.

You can see my main color is white.

I have been working a lot with Grafix Arts paper products.

They have amazing Vellum and all my white paper is vellum.

(sorry you can see the adhesive, it must have been the time of night, since you can’t see the the adhesive indoors!)

I love how white embossing powder looks on white vellum!  So pretty!

 I also have used Grafix Arts Black Chipboard to make the frame for my sentiment. It is amazing, since it is black all the way through!  PERFECT for mounting and framing things!

 I wanted to create a peaceful setting with the placement of the flowers and butterflies..


 I thought this would be the perfect for someone going through a rough spot.  Someone who needed to take time out and enjoy the little things in life!

Simpler times!

(I think I need to mail the card to myself!!)

I hope you have enjoyed my project for today, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today’s post.

Tuesday with Sweet Stamps New Challenge

15 Nov

This week on the  Sweet Stamps blog is a very fun challenge.

Remember that if you link up to our challenge, you have the chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet

The challenge this week is using Non-Traditional colors for a Christmas Card.

I had so much fun making this card and I love the colors.

I used papers from the Christmas Joy  6 x 6 pack by First Edition.

You seriously have to try this paper, it is awesome.  Sweet and whimsical designs and gorgeous prints.

I embossed the Medium snowflake on the paper and also used some of the paper I had embossed with the snowflake for my die cut ornaments.

The I used is called Star & Round Bauble ornament.

**BIG TIP** Before cutting paper that you have embossed, put a layer of wax paper between your die and embossed image or you will end up with your embossed image stuck to your die.

Maybe I know a thing or two about this?

This was a very easy challenge for me since the paper I used has a lot of  non-traditional colors in it.

I would love for you to stop by the Sweet Stamps blog and see what everyone else has come up with.

Hmmm, I wonder what colors everyone has used?

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:


 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 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.
