Clear Christmas Ornament

Happy Holidays everyone. Why bake a cookie and gain unneeded calories when you can make an ornament. This project takes around 30 minutes and you can appreciate the results every Christmas holiday season. 

I went to Michaels and purchased Celebrate It - Clear Glass Oranaments. I cut out a "Merry Christmas" from the Graphic 45 Christmas paper line and placed such inside the glass ornament with some gold, pearl, and read beads, flowers, and starts. 

The outside of the glass is decorated with lace trim, I am roses leaves and flowers, and more Celebrate It items. I used to Graphic 45 pictures from the same line of paper mentioned before. 

Happy Holiday, Kiki

Celebrate BREAKS


The last three months have been really hectic. However, I am so grateful for all the opportunities I've had to grow, learn, and continue to blossom. As our lives become more busy we learn to become more appreciative our moments. We learn to Celebrate Breaks. My Minds Eye - Lost & Found (Market Street and Rosy), and Wild Asparagus (The cutest thing-floral/yellow) paper was used develop this card. Spellbinder Dies- Classic Scalloped Ovals Small (largest die in pack) highlights the Greeting Farm Stamp. Prima - Black Say it in Pearls flourish and Avon Rose Romantique, I-rock rhinestones and Recollection flower was used to highlight card. I also inked around the card using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Dusty Concord. Punched the first layer of paper with EK-Success - Jewel and backed the paper with Coordinations hunter green cardstock.


I used Making Memories magnetic stamps to create the title "Celebrate BREAKS".


Stampin-Up - Colored Pencils were used to color the Greeting Farm Stamps. I highlighted her hair with Stickles - Crystal. 

Making the card was wonderful, I hope you enjoy making your own. 

Enjoy, Kiki

We have so much to be thankful for in our lives. Sometimes it's great just to sit back and be glad that our biggest worry might be laundry. Blessings is a cute card made for a very special someone to say "Thank You". It's just a simple way to say I appreciate. To create this card I used DCWV- Cotton Cottages and Cafe Mediterranean Paper.

The "Blessings" metal image is from Making Memories

Scrap paper from My Minds Eye - Totally Girl and K&Company was used to accent the Greeting Farm Stamped Image. 

  Flowers used are from Recollections, Prima and I am Roses. Green trim is by Recollections and is accented with pearls by the yard. Clear rhinestones are from i-ROCK

A Little Bit of This and That

Hi Everyone,  Here is a new project that I know you are going to love. I painted a eight inch needle hoop Burgundy with FolkArt paint. I stamped on some muslin cloth using FolkArt Metallic Peridot paint. I sprayed the muslin with homemade spritz paint.

I used teal and pearl trim on the bottom. Created a stick pin and accented with I Am Roses flowers and leaves. The "Dream" Metal art accent is from the K&Company Brenda Walton-Somerset Words line.

Two K&Company Amy Butler Fabric Tags were used to provide a title and story.

DCWV-Cafe Mediterranean paper was used to create a Deco Shell accents, using the Martha Stewart Punch and a photo mat. I highlighted the photo mat with Tim Holtz-Barn Door Stamp pad ink.

Bling was added with Prima embellishments. Finally, create a lop to hang your frame. 
Simple and delightful. 

Enjoy, Kiki

Spread Your Wings

Spread Your Wings was inspired by my nephew. His papa had left him with me while he went shopping. The kid became terribly saddened and just stood by the door waiting for him to return. So, like a good aunt, I told him that Daddy would fly back home and see him in 2 hours (pointing to the clock).

This a 12 x 12 layout. I used DCWV-TradeWinds and Mediterranean Cafe, K&Company -Terri Conrad Sweet Line, and My Minds Eye - Lost and Found paper line.

An 8" diameter Medallion Lace Doily was glimmer misted with Tattered Angels - Golden Terracotta. Book leaves (sent in a swap) were crinkled and adhered to the back of the doily. I am roses flowers and leaves were used to accent different parts of the page. Recollections - black rhinestones were also used to strike a dramatic color contrast to draw your eyes to the layout.

Images from the Lost and Found paper were put on pop darts to create a 2 dimensional element. A Michaels - $1.00 Bin Hope Glass Tag was adhered to the layout.

Flowers were grouped in 3 or more. The title was directly taken from the Lost and Found paper


The Martha Stewart - Daisy Fan punch was used with the My Minds Eye - Life Stories paper line. Recollections - Black trim was adhered to the Daisy Fan cut-out. White - Couture Bloom Trim was adhered over the black trim. Crytallzz - green pearls were used as centers of each rose. Two edges of the layout were curled inward to make the layout look vintage.

Enjoy, Kiki

Popz Story

Happy Fathers Day, 
Another great project coming to you from Serafinascrapping. I painted a 5 x7 canvas with FolkArt-Metallic Sequin Black.  I then removed excess paint with paper towel to get a faded jean look. The paper line used is DCWV Tradewinds and Tattered Time

I used a Tim Holtz Ideaology-Adage Ticket for the "story." I cut some domino images from the Tattered Time paper line. I then rolled the corners of the paper and elevated each image using pop-darts. I created all the ribbon used in this project. The "POPZ" is from my 2003 Lil Davis scrapbook collection. The canvas has a tag tucked way behind the photo mat.

I created the tag using Tim Holtz and Inkadinkado Stamps and Ink Pads. Stamps used by name are Inkadinkado - Happy Days, Tim Holtz - Urban Grunge and The Journey. Ink pads used were Barn Door, Black Soot, and Peeled Paint.

Swap Gift

 Just a quick project for scrapbooking, fun, or whatever. I stamped at tag and colored certain areas using my Stampin-up colored pencils and used ribbon I made to accent the tag. I then colored a Prima flower and placed a button in the middle. Several Lolly-pop flowers were created: taupe, aquamarine, canary, and ebony. Flowers can be removed and used for anything your mind can fathom. Hehe.

Hugs, Kiki

Knock, Knock, and Read the Sign

Hi everyone, 
I purchased this door sign at JoAnn and painted the item with Folk Art-Baby Pink paint. The item was highlighted with Folk Art-Metallic Antique Copper paint. The paper collection used was My Minds Eye-Totally Girl and DCWV-Tattered Time.

The clock tucked away in the background is a rub-on from Michaels. The ribbon trim is from my local Ben-Franklin store and I added centers using Crystallzz-glass pearls in green. I then added some Recollection-roses and I am roses-leaves to the sign.

The label tag is so old, I think it's from the 2003 Daisy D's collection. Yes, I have been scrapbooking for that long! I punched a Martha Stewart-Monarch Butterfly images for the corner. I then used the Recollections-Brown rhinestones to decorate around the door sign. The word "Time" is from Michaels $1.00 bin.

The images are from the Graphic 45-Steam Punk Collections and the larger image was UT embossed.The big pine leaf is from I am roses and was stamped with Tim Holtz-Pealed Paint.

The ribbon is self created using a special technique. Let me know if you would like some.

This is the back for the door sign.

The big roses and small green leaves are from I am roses. The leaves and big branch are from Recollections. The ribbon is the one I created, the black beads are from JoAnn, and the lace trim is from Walmart. The dress is from the Inkadinkado-Friendship collection and the stand was cut from my Cricut-Wanderings Cartridge.

Recollections-black rhinestones was used to highlight different areas on the tag.

You may have your favorite side, but I luv the back more than the front. It must be the girly-girl in me. 

Enjoy, Kiki

Chirp, Chirp, and Enjoy

Hello, Just thought I would post a really fun project. This wooden birdhouse can be purchased from your Michael's $1.00 bin. I painted the item with Folk Art - True Burgundy paint. I then used buttons of various sizes for the roof.

I covered the birdhouse midsection with K&Company paper. I then took some of that same double sided paper and tore off and curled the edges to get the green paper look. A UT Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly was punched out and placed near the bird resting peg. I added some Recollections rhinestone bling and added some Recollections and I am roses flowers and leaves. Some Recollections-Summer Lace Trim was added under the roof and around the bird house to get some unexpected color.

Tim Holtz- "Dream" Adage Ticket was added for extra lure. Finally, Folk Art - Pearl White paint was used on the buttons, to give an aged roof feeling, and to the burgundy bottom of the house. 

Chirp, Chirp, and Enjoy, Kiki

Happy Greetings,

I made this layout for a friends birthday. I used the Tattered Time paper, by DCWV, for the layout and backwards frame.

A Tim Holtz-Ornate Plate was used to frame the year the picture was taken. The year 2008 was made using Making Memories rub-ons. Prima Marketing-crystal branch and leaves were used to draw your eyes up to the  picture.

"The beginning is always today" phrase was obtained from DCWV Vellum Sentiments booklet. The shape used was obtained by a Tim Holtz Sizziz Bigz Die - Hanging Sign. I then used a EK Success two-way glue pen to apply glue around the edges for the shape and Studio G glitter was sprinkled around the edges. The key is from Michael's $1.00 bin.

The metal clock piece and gadget gear are from the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology collection (Time Pieces Clock Faces and Sprocket Gears). The matted leaves and roses are from I am roses. The glittered evergreen leaves and medium roses are from Michael's Celebrations and Recollections brands.

Enjoy, Kiki

Memories Shine

This frame is from the Michael's $1.00 bin. I did not know where I wanted to start so I painted it with Purple Peony paint from Folk Art. I then used Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist spray. I used some Michael's $1.00 rub-ons for the key, clock, and the word "shine". 

The paper is by KCompany and was torn  and rolled to give it a tattered look. Small green leaves and large flowers are from "I am" Dew drops are part of the Michael's recollection embellishments

A Making Memories metal Memories embellishment was used for part of the tittle. The KCompany paper was highlighted with Worn Lipstick dye from Tim Holtz.

Recollections Rhinestone sticker bling was used to highlight around the frame.

Big leaves and small roses are also part of Michael's Recollection embellishments. The yellow tone rose is trim from my local fabric store. I used 3 Crystallzz pearls as the center of the roses.

Enjoy, Kiki

Notas Secretos

Hi everyone, 
I really luv how this $1.00 Michael's box turned out. I painted the box with Folkart Black Metallic Paint. The top, front, and back were covered with DCWV Tah Mahal paper. I then used Michael's Recollections flowers, leaves, dew drops and rhinestone sticker bling to decorate the box.

I attached the Laugh Making Memories Metal Embellishment under the flower petal. I then inserted a home made stick pin and metal butterfly. Two images from Graphic 45 Steam-punk Debutant collection were cut out and used. One was UT embossed and inserted under a flower petal and the other was used for the closure knob.

Hope you enjoy and please share how you completed your project.

Thank You

Hi Everyone,

Below are some "Thank you" cards I made a couple of weeks ago. I used DCWV Summer Dream paper. I just can't get enough of that paper. Martha Stewart Flower Bed and EK Success Le Flower Burst punches were used to create edges. Acetate paper was used to provide a sturdy base behind punched design. Micheal's Recollection flower and leaf was used on the green card. The cream scalloped edged square was die cut using my Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Squares Small dies and the burgundy paper was ran through my Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder. The red and blue card thank you was cut using Nestabilities Small Labels and accented with brads on the corner. Silver UT embossed Bracket is from Bazzill Basics Paper Chips.



Chulo Smit-ten


Chulo Smit-ten is about my nephew playing outside in Spring 2008. I was trying to walk the tight rope of not making an extremely famine but elegant layout. I am using an 8x8 in canvas to create the layout. Baby Pink (633) Folk Art paint was used as the base color. Canvas was then highlighted with Metallic Antique Cooper paint and sprayed with Glimmer Mist Frost. A thick coat of Tim Holtz Distress Picket Fence crackle paint was used over the surface of the canvas and dried with the hot heating gun.  Once crackle paint was dried the canvas was lightly brushed with Folk Art Metallic Inca Gold. The Tradewinds paper from DCWV is seen as burgundy pieces of paper. These pieces were torn and rolled inwards. DCWV Cafe Mediterranean is the green paper that was torn and used as 2nd matting paper. My Minds Eye Lost of & Found paper, 1rst matting, was torn, crumpled, and sanded.

Michael's Recollections lace was used at the bottom of the layout. The words "Chulo" was welded with my Gypsy cut out using my Cricut Expression on DCWV Cafe Mediterranian paper. The words were then highlighted with Tim Holtz Peeled Pain Stamp ink. The word smitten is from the Making Memories 2004 collection.

Orange flower is from Michael's Recollections and leaves are from I am Roses (Thainland).

Prima Say it in Crystal and Pearls was used around the layout to accent layout.

Sentiment was provided by DCWV Vellum Quote Stacks. The bottom edges were torn and saying was ran through my Xron 510.

Spring 2008 tag was altered from saying Spring 2003 and is from a Making Memories kit I purchased in 2003 from QVC.  The bumble bee hiding behind the flower is being a held with a brad and was purchased online.
