Summer Wreath

I made a Summer Wreath for my front door.  All supplies were already in my craft room too.  It's not your normal grape wreath or pool noodle but it's fun just the same.
 
I cut "fit to page" for my Plantin School Book "S".  It's my favourite font.  I traced the S on cardboard then cut.  When you wrap the twine it really firms up the cardboard.  Just use Hot Glue and wrap away! 
 
Be careful, I melted my finger prints off;)
 
I really tried to stay minimal.  I simply cut canvas with Tattered Floral to make the flowers.  On this one I stamped with Paris Memoir, the word stamp.  The butterfly is smeared with some summery Distress Paints and heat dried.
 
 
Cutting grunge board and Word Play die I spelled SUMMER and attached with some screen mesh.  More hot glue to keep it in place. 
 
 
This flower I didn't stamp or ink...or ANYTHING!  Shocking...I know.  This metal embellishment is an Upholstery Nail I got and Home Depot.
 
 
UGH one day I'll get to change my horrible door!  But for now sprucing it up with my version on a summer wreath helps...I hope?
 
 
 I'm not a "wreath" kinda girl.  But this is pretty organic so it appealed to me.  The whole thing took about an hour and a half.  Not bad considering this was all lying around my craft room.  Well, not really.  I am organizing and came across the twine, which got me thinking...

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
