Love Deeply - Vintage Framed Quote

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope everyone is having a fab, I am planning on watching some football with the hubby today & enjoy the fall weather that has finally found its way to our area! I also want to share with you my crafty little project for this week featuring some Prima, Tattered Angels, & SEI products that can all be found in the Your Memories Here Store!

I have this lovely vintage frame a friend gave me & I try to do something different with it for each season. (you can click here to see the design i did for spring.) For fall, I decided to focus on some blues, greens & browns & this beautiful quote in my stamp stash that I adore. I love this quote because it reflects the love that my family shares & our belief that in our home, love can heal all things. All of the paper I used is by SEI, except the green scallop edged paper which is left over Prima packaging...I love re-using my packaging - especially Prima's since it is always so gorgeous! I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the entire project & it all has such a lovely shimmer to it, especially the butterfly which I sprayed with some Pearl Glimmer Mist.

The butterfly is probably my fav detail on this project & it is a gorgeous Prima stamp that I double stamped, cut out, & pop dotted for a great 3-D effect. The ribbon, crystals, pearls, leaves & roses are also all by Prima. For the curly vines on the roses, I simply snipped off the wire from each flower & wound it around a pencil. Then, I tugged on it gently to give it some length & adhered with some Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue...which is amazing! The ribbon was a cream color, but I just used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to make it fit my project...which is why I am crazy in love with my glimmer mist. I can use it on products I already have to suit what my needs are vs. always buying new products. How cool is that?! I also used some rub on butteflies in my stash to finish up the project..they seemed to add the right finishing touch!

Thanks so much for taking the time out to check out my project - and hanging with me through a lengthy post since I can get pretty wordy at times! LOL! Also, please make sure to check out the YMH Store for all your crafty shopping needs! There really are some fabulous items there at very amazing some new items are in stock & they are super fun! Happy Scrappin'!

Laugh: Framed Canvas LO

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday evening! Sorry I'm a tad late with my post this week but I've had some Internet issues over the weekend...ugh. However, it is better late than never...especially since I am super psyched about my project this week! I absolutely love how it turned out & can't wait to showcase it in my soon to be redesigned hall!

All of the products featured on my project are from the Your Memories Here Store & are manufactured by either Prima or Tattered Angels. I was so very happy to showcase these fabulous items as they are some of my favorites! I began with a 12x12 Canvas by Prima & then layered on some masks I made using leftover Cricut cuts. Then, I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to liberally spray around my masks & splatter a little too. I know I have mentioned it many times, but I absolutely love my glimmer mist! This stuff is soooo versatile!

While waiting for that to dry, I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl to spray my Prima Cancan flowers & mini roses, but I didn't spray my Prima leaves. However, I did mist some on my frame to give it a little oomph...yes, you can use glimmer mist on metal! It is wonderful for so many types of surfaces including metal & acrylic, which is awesome. The bling that I added is from the Prima Say It In Crystals line & I also used some leftover Prima packaging, after glimmer misting it, for my hidden journaling. The stitched fabric letters are by Donna Downey & they were amazing to work with too.

I love how the focus of the LO remains on a recent photo of my hubby & me...and so does the hubby! I love it when he gets as excited about a project as I do! LOL! I hope you enjoy my LO this week & that it helps inspire you to create one of your own. Also, thanks for bearing with me through my lengthy post & lots of photos! Make sure to check out the Your Memories Here Store for all of your crafty needs & visit the Your Memories Here DT Blog for some crafty inspiration!! Happy Craftin' my friends!

BOO-tiful Inspiration...

Hello everyone! Hope all you crafty peeps are having a fab holiday weekend! And for those of you who are crafting this weekend, maybe I can inspire you to get a jump start on your Halloween projects...yes, I said Halloween! Lately, I have been seeing the cutest little cards, layouts & projects popping up everywhere & I was completely inspired to start getting ready myself using some products from the Your Memories Here Store...especially since Halloween is my very fav holiday!

The whole concept of this candy wrapper centered around this adorable haunted house Snag 'Em stamp that you can pick up HERE at the YMH Store. Love this stamp so much! I then made sure to use profuse amounts of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in pearl on the crepe paper ruffles I made & some cute purple, black, & orange Prima flowers that you can also snag in the YMH Store!

Other products used were patterned paper by The Paper Studio, DCWV, & Miss Elizabeth; cardstock is Bazzill; ink is Staz On & StampCraft; sentiment is Stampin' Up!; brads by Making Memories; Stickles by Ranger; and ribbon & pop dots from my stash. I am also proud to say that every single bit of paper for this project was from scraps! Woo-Hoo! Nothing like using up your stash!

Thanks so much for checking out my little project this weekend & I can't wait to see all of your boo-tiful creations! Now, if I can just resist eating the chocolate that is in the candy wrapper it'll be a miracle! Happy Craftin'!

Ok, I am a Slacker....

Well, not really a slacker, but I feel super bad because I just realized that I forgot to post my LO for the Your Memories Here DT/Sketchy Thursday Challenge! I can be such a goofball. Some times, I just have too much on my mind too & getting older does not help at all. LOL!

So, this belated LO is of our son and his gf and was based off a Sketchy Thursday's layout sketch you can find HERE. I used my Cricut, some SEI paper & journal spot, & lots of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, which can all be found in the Your Memories Here Store at a great price. One interesting little fact for ya...did ya know you can spray paint Thickers? Yep, those there Thickers up there are spray painted black! They are the puffy, plastic ones & it worked really well...LOL!

Make sure to check out the Your Memories Here DT Blog & Store. They are super fabulous spots for inspiration, plus the new Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam has arrived! Woo-Hoo! And, I will be back tomorrow with a cutie card to share...promise. Besides, I already have the post scheduled so I won't be late! HEHEHE! Happy Scrappin'!
