SCROLL DOWN FOR OUR CRAFTY SECRETS LINKY PARTY TODAY
This is my second post of the day....this one for Really Reasonable Ribbon !
Hello and happy Monday! I was in a red mood the other day and grabbed my lipstick red seam binding and matching polka dot papers and "painted the town red" with this little friendship plaque. I started with a scallop edge chipboard piece and covered it in papers, than sanded and distressed it. I added layers of vintage doilies, chalkboard label, and my sweet silhouette sentiment. I wanted something towards the bottom for more pizazz and got this idea to add some sweet chipboard hearts and cut circle in them. I wound more seam bindings through to create a seam binding banner. After that I simply added some larger chunky pearls and a little vintage bow pin to the middle heart. What do you think? Makes me smile...but than I love red! thanks for visiting, cherry
Time for another blog hop with Crafty Secrets ! We were challenged to create something with a Spring theme. I always think of Easter when Spring rolls around and the pastels that go along with it. I started with the bottom of a chipboard box that had a nice depth to it so I could create a shadow box effect. I added crepe papers and vintage tinsel to the outside. I added pattern paper and a chipboard bingo card to the inside along with a framed sweet image from Crafty Secrets creative Easter scraps . I added buttons and daisy flowers and lots of tulle and seam binding to the top. LOVE the aqua and spring green together. Enjoy and check out the other ladies creations here.

Poppin in this evening to share a Crafty Secret project...I always enjoy making a few St. Patties day goodies. Love using the greens and dreaming of Ireland. A place I would love to see someday. I used one of the freebie calendar months from Crafty Secrets. I also used the cute little lass from their seasonal calendar creative scraps. I painted a big chipboard clover and decked it out with a gingham flower and snippets of vintage laces. My yummy ribbon comes from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course. I added a stamped metal tag to the side and was done! Have any Irish friends? Make them a special greeting for St. Patties day! Hope you enjoy

Sorry if it seems like I have fallen off the face of the earth but we are knee deep in basketball tournaments. So exciting! So it has left me with not as much time to create or share. I do have a fun and wee bit early Easter project to share with you today, made for RRR I started with a chipboard circular base that I painted a soft robins egg blue. I added pink crochet lace to the outer edge and layered it with handmade crepe paper and vintage tinsel. For the inside I added a diecut chipboard bingo card with a sweet baby chick image. I also added a white mason jar lid to frame the image out. I nestled some diecut leaves cut from old fabric and a cute blossom to the outer edge. The top is loaded with yummy baby pink seam binding along with a mini tag, little millinary flowers, and a pink vintage style rhinestone button. I just love how this turned out! Soft, pastel, and oh so full of Easter cheer! Enjoy! hugs, cherry

Lovin on these ribbons this month for the RRR ribbon club! You will too! Now you should have made your way here from Heather's gorgeous blog! If at anytime you get lost, just start right back at the RRR blog. I have had Easter creepin into my mind and I had this adorable Crafty secrets bunny image from the Crafty secrets Easter creative scraps. I thought this adorable guy paired perfectly with the gingham in the set. I also added the sweet lace to the bottom of my card. I really like the yellow, greens, and browns together....something I don't think I would have ever thought to combine. Well peeps your next stop is with Miss Bonnie. Have fun and get inspired! hugs, cherry

Here to share a whimsical little plaque.....rather small but cute! Reds and aquas mixed with ginghams and polka dots...some of my fave combinations. I started with a chipboard back and covered it with a diecut spellbinder square that stitched. I covered a Maya Road mason jar with my papers and added "straws". I added peekaboo lace to the inside of the heart and some lace blue seam binding to the neck of the jar. I had to cutesy it up more and added some paper buttons and a real buttons along with crepe papers, a tag, and an adorable sweetheart blossom. That is that! hpe u enjoy, hugs, cherry

I thought I would stop by to share a couple of cards with you. The first one is one I just made for fun...I fell in love with this image and knew the sentiment I wanted but didn't have it amongst my stash or stamps so I printed it out for myself. I used old papers and goodies....and twill ribbon from RRR that I tea stained. I am really loving the yellow during this time of the year....a bit of sunshine brought inside.
The second card is one that was published in Northridge Publishing Handmade Baby awhile back. I finally got the card back. I used Pink Persimmon stamps on it. Just love their sweet stamp sets. Had a lot of fun making this. Hope you enjoy! hugs, cherry
