Loving You Is A Dream

Happy Saturday. "Loving you is a dream" was made for a very special friend who is rehabilitating from surgery. Before they went in they requested a card with a colored image and a stickpin.

The stickpin was made using some glass beads and a resin butterfly. I adhered some paper in the back of the butterfly.

I used My Minds Eye paper to do the accents for the title, top note, and rectangle behind the Greeting Farm image. I have a really old (2004) Making Memories kit that I used to spell-out the title. The burgundy cardstock used is by Coordinations and the paper with the poke-a-dot is by Prima. I ran the paper through my Big Shot the embossed look with a Stampin Up embossing folder. 

Greeting Farm - Anya

I used my Shinhan markers to color the Greeting Farm image, called Anya. I intentionally have her hair tips much darker than the rest of her hair. She is getting old and fragile. 

I used Glossy Accent to highlight the flowers in her head. I used Stickles to glitter her dress belt. The dress was accented with rhinestones, but she lost one. :-(.

Note: Anya's face is discolored. I did not do this on-purpose. Once you have colored an image and it dries, it is difficult to go back to that same area and add more color. I attempted to do this and the images face came out like mines in 2nd grade. Oh well.

Trim and Beads were purchased at my local craft store. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.

The Genuine Article

Hope you are enjoying a great day. In celebration of the new Shinhan Markers have been doing some coloring. The sticker pearls and rhinestones are from Recollections. 

I used Wild Orchid Flowers and a Greeting Farm Stamp. The "Genuine" sticker is by K&Company.

Thanks for looking.

Storage Idea for Pens

Hey everyone, ever tried to find a new storage idea. 
You know, one that looks expensive but without the costly price. I love my new storage idea for pens, highlighters, and my Pink Paislee Pixie Stix. Best of all, these are cheap and easy to find at Walmart.

Hint: Look in the kitchen isle, between the salt and pepper shakers. 

Sugar pourers. You know the ones you see at really cool diners. I simply removed the top and threw my items inside. This containers make for a clean crisp look on my glass shelf. Why? Because this storage idea is transparent and does not disturb ones eyes. As you can see, mines is situated between a mini album and my Zutter Binder. 

 Luv it. 

Hugs, Kiki

A True Story Of Wonderful Bliss (Layout 11 of 12)

7 Gypsies Photo Display Stand

There are so many different name brands jammed into this layout. Who would know where to begin. However I am really excited because this is the second to last layout of this journey. After this, I will start adding pictures. Hurray!

The flowers in the layout are by Prima. The library cards are by Colorbok. The bird on the library card in Girl Paperie. 

The vine around the layout I purchased at BenFranklin [who is going out of business :( ]. I inked around the Colorbok library card with my Tim Holtz - Mustard Seed in pad. I like the dirty look. The paper clip is from Stampin Up

I did a rough clear embossing to the dress form, which is by Girl Paperie. I added Tim Holtz - Findings Wings to the back of the dress form using foam double sided tape. The typewriter came from a stamp I purchased at Michael's.

The "True Story" came from a back by KComapany. The button next to the word "of" is from a 2003 EK Success collection. There is a little bunny sticking out from behind the 2 paper flowers. The tine flower I made (fun and tedious) using a Tim Holtz tutorial technique. I also used Tim Holtz Clear Fragment accent to highlight "True". The clear accent was painted with Ranger Dopper- Copper paint. I don't remember where the metal "A" is from, but I have a strong feeling that it's from Making Memories.  The metal flower was purchased from the Hobby Lobby - Spare Parts collection.

I used the DCWV - Tattered Time paper collection to make the ruler. The green blue trim is from American Crafts - Dear Lizzy Collection. The flat back pearls were purchased at JoAnn and the butterfly was purchased on Ebay.

The bird is by Girl Paperie and is on a coin envelope that been stamped and embossed with Tim Holz - Attic Treasures (clear) and Warehouse District (black). The word "BLISS" is from the Tim Holz -Adage Tickets and the hinge clips Tim Holtz Ideology collection. The green word "WONDERFUL" is by KCompany. I used my Dymo label maker to type the black "WONDERFUL" label.

Thank you for embarking on this journey with me. I am finally done. The back will just be simple with my card information. I hope this inspired more people to make and show their 7 Gypsies Photo Display Stand.

P.S. The background paper used in all the layouts is by Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) - Cotton Bloom Stack

Because... (Layout 10 of 12)

Sometimes "Because" is all you have to say. The "because(s)" in our lives and make us cry, laugh, smile and inspire us to be better. I was inspired to use burlap and paper doilies for this layout. The accent flowers are Prima.

I made the stickpin, is it not beautiful?

The "Because" is by Prima and is accented by a glass heart. 

Thanks, Kiki
