Waiting for Santa

Happy Friday, sparkly friends! I'm sharing another Christmas creation on the Live & Love Crafts blog today. It's hard to stop when Sandy has added so many festive beauties to the shop. ♥️

Short and sweet from me today as this week has been a time crunch!
I have paired Pion's Greetings from the North Pole with some wintry Wycinanka chippies.
This sleeping sweetheart stole my heart. The frame is a Joy! Crafts die. I hung a few tiny stockings (including two for the birdie friends in the tree) and surrounded the scene with winter's beauty. The Wycinanka Reindeer is one of my favorite chippies, which I have covered in Shabby White Frantage for snowy white with a touch of holiday gold. ♥️
Sweet pine cone charms jingle from a Fayette bow. The beautiful new lace is Marquisa and I am completely enamored with it. The classic Rhinestones Lace adorns the opposite side.
The Wycinanka Snowflake is covered in Shabby White Frantage and topped with a Christmas Cheery Lynn Designs poinsettia. I used a Sunflower Pearl for its center, as I love how it resembles a snowflake. (And of course I take any opportunity to add an extra pearl or two.) ;) My sentiment is from Whimsical Designs (no longer in business) and is cut out with a Spellbinders pennant and trimmed with Fayette Lace.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely day! ♥️

Joy to the World

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I am just returning and will be sprinkling comment love all over your blogs this weekend. :o)

I'm on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing a snowy Christmas inspiration that will be sent to a mother enduring heartache this holiday season as her little one fights a terminal disease. I always look forward to the new Pion churches each holiday season and the one in Greetings from the North Pole is lovely. The entire collection is a wintry delight. ♥︎
The church is nestled within a gorgeous Wycinanka Bauble (Decor 3). I am addicted to their baubles! ♥︎ For textural interest I have covered it in Crackle Paste and created a hanger of sunflower pearls, natural hemp, and teeny jingly bells.  I love using multiple chippies, so a stunning Vintage Snowflake is tucked in between snowy paper layers.
The sweet ornament hangs beneath a ruffly floral garland, with the most darling polka dot trim I've seen! Rockabilly Ruffle Trim is a recent addition to the store and I am smitten. ♥︎ For festive creations, the little dots are just like precious snowflakes. My card is lined with the beautiful Alicia lace.

The Christmas sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business) and the snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day. :o)

Thankful for You

Hello, sweet friends! I am currently away but will be catching up with you very soon. ♥️

Today I am sharing my first project for Wycinanka! What a joy it was to create. This is for a teen ballet dancer who is battling brain cancer. She continues to dance in her heart every moment and also physically when she is able. The cancer may have taken her eyesight, but not her determination. ♥️
To thank her for inspiring us so richly (and teaching us more than she will ever realize), I gathered some of my favorite Wycinanka and Live & Love Crafts goodies. The gorgeous chipboard frame is from Wycinanka's Elegance collection, within which I nestled pearls and sweet background hearts. The delicate hearts on the frame make my heart dance. ♥️
My ballerina is a Marianne Design die. She is dressed up in lace and papers from Pion's Alma's Sewing Room, which also decorate my entire card. The foliage within my Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are also beautiful chippies. The My Craft Spot (no longer in business) sentiment is cut out with a Spellbinders pennant.
Isn't this Boheme border exquisite? It is glorious and also comes in a slightly smaller mini size. It is softly accented with pearls for extra elegance. I truly adore the texture and beauty that chipboard accents innately create.
The lovely lace along the bottom is one of Sandy's newest trims at Live & Love Crafts and is perfectly dreamy. I wanted various texture for the recipient to explore and see through her hands... I hope she loves it. ♥️

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly day. :o)

Monday Blessings ♥︎

Happy Monday, sweet friends! I hope you had a lovely weekend. I'm popping in today with a quick little post. Most of my weekend was spent beginning a box of love for someone in need of sunshine, perfectly timed with the receipt of my first DT parcel from Wycinanka.  ♥︎
As I prepared my heart for this purpose (it is always emotionally taxing), I immersed myself in this enormous blessing from Wycinanka. Their generosity is as beautiful as the products they create! ♥︎
Kindness comes in many forms, big and small. My new teamies and I are already being spoiled silly and it has me eager to create even more encouragement packages... to use every single one of these in an outpouring of sappy love. ♥︎ As I was surprised with this avalanche of chippies, I hope you are taken aback this week by blessings that chase you down and overtake you. ♥︎

Photo Inspiration at Live & Love Crafts!

Happy September, sparkly friends! It's time for a fun new challenge at Live & Love Crafts and it's a wintry delight. Sandy created a gorgeous Photo Inspiration, which you'll find just below.
Edit: This is also made for the new monthly Deep Ocean Challenge, where Karina has a marvelous Bingo board for inspiration! Please hop on over to see the lovely inspiration from my teamies.

I created this card to coordinate with my tag/ornament from yesterday, as it is for the same person. They look so sweet together. ♥︎
Here is the lovely collage.. she always makes them so beautiful. ♥︎
The winter wonderland inspired me to use Pion Design's Greetings from the North Pole, as it has such gorgeous snowy scenes. It sets the stage for countless avenues of Christmas joy. ♥︎
The moment I saw the tree in the collage, this exquisite Wycinanka Reindeer Bauble chippie came to my heart. I am enamored with it. ♥︎ The reindeer are stunning and the design is both whimsical and elegant. I popped it up above a circle of extra-snowy Pion Snowfall paper and centered it with a Button Etoile. It hangs from a Wycinanka Romance Corner by a pearl string and both chippies are gently dusted with Snow Writer and Glamour Dust.
Sweet trims abound, as I wanted this wrapped up all cozy. :o) Cinnamon sticks rest beneath a Cheery Lynn poinsettia, while my favorite reindeer charm frolics about. The lace border is one of Sandy's newest trims (Regine) and it is lovely. For pops of sparkly Christmas red I added Wine Pudding Pomegranate Apples and sweet pearl stamen.

My card base is made with Spellbinder's Romantic Rectangles and the white crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Diana. Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day. :o)
