Crafter's Companion is coming to HSN May 9th!

I'm super excited for this next HSN Crafting Event on Tuesday, May 9th!!! Why?

Well...HELLO...Sara Davies and Jennifer Tryon from Crafter's Companion will be there! As if that's not exciting enough...Crafter's Companion has amazing NEW products that will be launched! And....(drum roll)....they are gonna be the "Today's Special" on the show! YAY!!!!!!!!!

Here's a project I made using the Create-A-Card Circle Centre Dies that are part of the bundle for the May 9th HSN Today's Special bundle:


The NEW Die'sire Create-A-Card dies are so much FUN! Wait till you see the show and all the great samples. Sara will demo how they work, so you won't wanna miss the show.

The pic below is more what it looks like all folded up. When the card is folded shut, it measures 5 1/2" square.  I diecut the base of the card using Crafter's Companion Pearl White Shimmering C ardstock. The butterflies are from another die set (which I believe will be on the HSN show as well) are diecut from Black Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, then rubbed with a bit of Silver Gilding Wax. Wait till you see THAT stuff! A must have in your craft stash!


The Circle Centre Die Set comes with a sentiment die that cuts in the center circle, but I cut it apart and just used the "thank you" of it and glued down on the card base. The flower panels are also part of the set, and I cut die-cut them green glitter cardstock. This Luxury Cardstock is also from Crafter's Companion and comes in a variety pack of different finishes in the same color family.


The silver mirror cardstock for the circle frame is also from a pack of Luxury Cardstock. I die-cut 2, adhering 1 on each side to sandwich the string that I put in the middle. That way it not only hides the string ends, but gives a professional finish to both sides. I love how when you open the card, the center circle flips open.

Here's a quick video showing the card in action.



The butterflies on the card base are popped up on dimensional foam adhesive. The butterflies on the string are sandwiched with a dimensional foam adhesive.  I added some matching rhinestones to the center of each butterfly.


Make sure to mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 9th!

Watch the HSN show on your TV or on-line. The 24-hour event will be full of crafting inspiration, ideas, and demonstrations

Until then...


Have a beautiful day!

April 2017 Calendar Page

It's April! That means it's time to flip the calendar page. I seriously love how this months page came together. Totally makes me think Spring. I used the most adorable Die'sire Essentials die set from Crafter's Companion called Nature, along with beautiful papers from Sara Davies Rustic Cottage Signature Collection 6"x6" Paper Pack.


To create the soft yellow background on the page, I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply a light blend of Mustard Seed Distress Ink.


I die cut extra layers of the branch and birds from kraft cardstock, and adhered them together to make the them thicker. This makes them sturdy, and easier to adhere to the page. The cloud to the far right is popped up with dimensional foam adhesive, the other 2 are glued flat to the page.


For a little Spring bing bling, I added tiny rhinestones to the eyes. And because it's Spring...I gave momma bird a nest to sit on.


Have a great day!

Baby Patchwork Quilt

Hello friends. I'm back today with another baby card. If you love embossing folders...you are gonna "need" this one! :)


I ran the Patchwork Quilt Embossing Folder through my Gemini with cardstock that is blue on one side and white on the other. Then I sanded off the raised embossed area. This classic technique has been around forever, and it never gets old! I also sanded off around the edges of the panel, which not only give it a nice finished edge, but gives the appearance of another layer. I attached the panel with dimensional foam tap on top of a couple more layers of cardstock and then to a white card base.


My idea for this card was a baby quilt that has cute little appliques in every other square. I die cut some of the Baby Accessories Dies from white cardstock, added glitter, heart rhinestones, then adhered with dimensional foam tape. I made the sentiment tag to look like one of those personalized "hand sewn by" tags. I added glossy accents on top of the die cut for added dimension.


The inside of the card is also decorated with a panel of yellow card stock that I scored around the edges and sanded off. Then I added the die cut birdie in the bottom corner. Some glitter accents and it's done. So cute!!!!



As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope this inspires you with some fun papercrafting ideas.

DIY Baby Photo Frame

Hello friends! I have another project to share using the Sara Davies Signature Collection - Little Angel from Crafter's Companion. I took a plain boring photo frame and totally transformed it! Look how CUTE it turned out! (BTW...that's my youngest when she was born)


I die-cut a bunch of the Little Angel Baby Accessorie Dies using white cardstock and patterned paper from the Little Angel 12" x 12" Paper Pad. I stacked and adhered the pieces to make them thicker and dimensional, then attached to frame with foam adhesive tape.


I used a piece of the patterned paper to slip into the slot where the picture goes, then adhered the photo to that. Super duper easy! The Little Angel Collection can be used for non-baby projects as well...just don't use the baby specific items.

Make sure to follow us and stay up-to-date with all the latest happenings:

Have a great day!

Little Angel


I adore the new Little Angel Collection from Sara Davies of Crafter's Companion. Did you know this collection is now available? YUP! Check out the collection on the Crafter's Companion USA website.

Here's a project I made


I used several products from the Little Angel Collection to create my card. To start out with, I used the Dotty Clouds Embossing Folder on the front panels of the card.  Then I embossed another piece of white cardstock and cut out a few of the clouds. I covered them with white Fun Flock and then sponged light yellow ink around the bottom areas. The clouds are popped up on the card front with dimensional foam adhesive. I used a few clouds on the inside of the card too.


 I diecut some of the Baby Accessories Dies using papers from the Little Angel paper pad. They are sooo cute! On the inside of the card I adhered panels of patterned paper. The die cut circle frame with Baby sentiment is from the Beautiful Baby Die Set.


The card base was easy to create using Crafter's Companion Create-A-Card Fancy Card Blanks. I did finish the card with some crystal clear sequins. This card really is sooo cute in real life.

Thanks for stopping by today.
