Butterbee Scrapbs and Baby charms

I have a few more things as promised to share with all of you using
some of the other baby charms in the set from Butterbee Scraps.
This set has such cute little things in it and i think i am going
to have to order some more of them for other projects i have 
in mind to make this summer.  

For my first project i made a mother's day card to send to my friend
because she already has 2 other kids and i think i should celebrate
her and those other 2 also.  I used some Spellbinders Die D-lites dies
for the card and tied a pretty bow through it and used one of the silver
flowers and a pink rhinestone that i got from Butterbee Scraps.

I wanted to give her a gift card so i found a cute pattern online 
and hand cut it out and used one of the diaper pin charms at the top
to finish it with a flower.  And I also bought some super soft socks
and decorated them with ribbons and sewed on one of the charms
to decorate them.  Aren't they just so cute and the quality is so good.
You are going to love using these for your projects...

And lastly i painted a heart box that i found to match
and i am thinking she can put all those tiny first year 
treasures into it to save forever.  I painted 2 of the flowers
in the Butterbee shop with white paint and then painted it 
again with pink paint to match the box.  I added some ribbons
and another charm from the Heart collection in the shop.

Here is a list of supplies that i used for them:

and there is lots of new charms and products in the
Butterbee store this week so be sure and stop over and see
everything that's new!!  Hope you like what i shared 
and i will be back next week with some fun 
projects using the Tea Charms....  

Oh and just one more thing---all the ribbons are from

Cardabilites #97 is up today...

I can honestly say i just love using Karan's sketches.  There is so
much you can do with them and it is amazing what our team comes
up with each time with their take on it.  For my card today i wanted
to use a new Simple Stories pad that i got called DIY boutique
with lots of bright colors and fun little patterns in it.

To begin to make my card i started by using a bright blue
paper on my backround and then put a layer of word paper
matted in white on top with foam squares and then created
 a framed border to go around the center design in the bright pink
 with Spellbinders Labels 34.  The rest of the center i layered
 tiny flags with matching colored papers and a tag in the set 
and then i made that cute little flower
with another Spellbinders Die D-lites set called Blooms Four.

Here is the sketch for you so that you can join 
along with us over on Cardabilites this time....

Thanks for stopping over and see you next time...

Sweet Baby Girl Shower with Butterbee Charms

Hi Everyone, it is Wednesday already so i have something
brand new to share with you from Butterbee Scraps.  I 
have been using lots of their charms lately and got an amazing
set of charms called Baby Steps and got so inspired to create 
some things for a friend and her new baby girl on the way.
I am sharing 3 of them today and then i have 4 more things
to share with you next Wednesday so be sure and check back
because they are sooooo cute!  So let's get started then :)

The first three things i want to share is the card i did
to send her and a baby shoe with the cutest little feet
charm on it.  And a pin for her to wear.....

The charm set is called Baby Steps and has 10 charms
in the set.  I am not using all of them this week but i will have
other projects using them next Wednesday. I also used a few 
rhinestones and some silver jump rings to attach the charms with.

I think this was one of my favorite things.... 
I just love this pin.  To make it you will need
all the things below and your jewelry tools
to put everything together with. I used the wire
to attach the pearls and crystals on to the top
of the pin.  It seemed to work better wrapped 
rather than just dangle and shake all around.
To hang the charms at the bottom I attached a 
lobster claw and jump rings on the charms.
It would also be great to give to your Mom to
wear for Mother's Day Brunch just to show how
much you care and love her.... maybe change out
the bottom charms with flowers or hearts from the
other sets available in the shop here.....

Here is a close up of the card and the cute
little stork charm. I used a brand new Spellbinders die set called
A2 Tranquil Moments. All my projects are from a New 6x6 pad
from Carta Bella called Baby Mine. and.... I had a sticker for the 
sentiment that was so cute and the flowers and ribbon
i got from a new online store that is amazing
called Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Great products and they
send everything out super quick so what more could you ask for.

That's all for today and i hope you liked my projects
and i love to hear from you so please don't be shy ok :)

Have a great day... and miles of smiles!!

Thinking of You Card

Hi Everyone and happy Monday to all of you!  
I had a busy week and weekend with projects and
classes and a fun afternoon with my mom at the theatre
to see a fabulous play called Harmony yesterday.  It was really,
really good and the music was fantastic so i would highly
recommend it if you love theater.  We also are going to
see Porgy and Bess soon and i am sure it will be just as good.

And today i want to share one of the cards that i have
been creating with the new dies that Spellbinders is
releasing and a new stamp set that i got from Justrite Papercrafts.

I was cleaning again and ran across this paper from G45
and thought that it would make up really well using the 
Stately Circles Die and the Lacey Circles to frame the sentiment.

To make the card i used the diamond border for the backround and
a smaller piece to go across the middle of the tan print.  Then i cut
2 black circles in the Stately Circles and another white one with
the same size lacey ovals.  The stamp set from Justrite is called
Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven and i stamped it on printed
cream paper in black in and embossed it.  Then i took just a little
bit of distress ink and went around the edges and left the tag
clear so that the sentiment would really pop. I assembled the 
pieces by layering them with 3D foam squares and then added a pretty
silk ribbon and a button that i had in my stash.  I really love how 
this G45 line works in cards.  Everything really pops and of course
the stamps are more than beautiful too.  

It's a quick post today i know--- i am off to take on of my pups 
in to the groomers and then lots of crafting for me today.  I hope you
have a wonderful day and make something fun too.
 Lots of Hugs... Teresa

Cardabilites #96 is up today....

Hi Everyone we have a brand new fun sketch
to use today from Cardabilites and we all
got the opportunity to use some fun printables from 
Pickled-Potpourri Designs.  I picked the cross with the tulip flower
to do mine and i have a few others to share with you too.

My first card is using the printed cross that i
got and i cut/embossed it with a new Spellbinders
die set and layered it on another die with pink
and white solid papers.  I colored it with Copic pens and
 used a little bit of distress ink to go around the inside of it.

My next card i followed the sketch and used a
clear glassine bag to put a gift card in for the
front.  I cut some Spellbinders dies to create
the top flap and also to decorate the front.  I wanted
this to be really vintage looking so I used paper
from MME and inked around all the edges with brown.

Here is a close up of the card and below
is the brand new sketch for this month.

And i have one more card to share this time. I
kind of went a little over board but the image
was so pretty and i had some flowers that matched
perfect and i colored her dress to go with it.
I used vintage dies and even a feather that i
had in my stash to work with it.  I really like it.

Thanks for visiting and i hope that you have time
to join us this month to play along with the sketch.
We love to see what all of you create and share and
you even have a chance to win prizes!!'
Have a wonderful day :)

New ideas for charms

As promised i am back again today to share a few more
things that i made with the Birds of a Feather charm set
sold at Butterbee Scraps.  This set really had cute charms so
today i am sharing 2 necklaces that i did and a card that
i used the charm on.  Grab some tea and relax.. i have lots
of ideas today to share with you.

  So first up i really had fun with this pin that i did.
i started with a piece of white paper and inked it and let
it dry a little.  Then i made a template for the top of
the frame with an old piece of plastic and a sharpie and 
then cut it out.  I glued it in the frame and then added 2 layers
of clear crackle paint and it came out really neat looking.


Then i glued on the back filigree and a pin back....

and then i added that pretty bird charm on the right.  I 
thought that it would be really pretty to have flowers and
leaves on the bottom so i added some bead caps and cut
the leaves a little smaller and glued them at the bottom.

and then i went back after it was all dry and added more 
Staz on ink in pink, green and aqua.  A few rhinestones and it's
ready to wear.  I will have to think of a cute jacket to wear it on!! 
Maybe something bright pink would be nice i think.

Next is another necklace i did with the same frame and 
this one i used the same template that i had and cut a really
pretty piece of paper to put in the back.  I added a pretty thick
layer of glossy accents and let it dry and just when it was still
stickly i pushed the birdhouse charm into the top and let it dry.
The chain and jump rings are from Butterbee Scraps too.

And finally my last project is a card that i did with the new 
Doodlebug spring papers out.  I used another of the birdhouse
charms and one of my favorite new dies from Spellbinders
and a stamp from Justrite papercrafts.  It went together super
quick and i know exactly who to give this one to :)

To make my projects today i used these things
from the Butterbee Scraps online store:
Birds of a feather charm set, Cap247-B, F-094-B large Bronze
Cameo Frames, 254-B Bronze leaves and Jump Rings.

Thank you for stopping by and hope that you all have
a nice weekend and doing something fun where you live.
It's basketball playoffs time here so i am sure we will
be watching a few of the games :)  Take care!
