Tim Holtz and Graphic 45 Configuration Box

Here is my Configuration Box made with Grapgic 45 Once Upon A Spring Time Paper. I started this box last week for my daughter. Even as an adult she loves Tinker Bell so I thought this paper would be great. I had the idea in my head and could only get so far. So Friday night went to my friend Bobbi's and she helped me with the inside between both of us we worked well into the night. Bobbi used her tweezers and had a steadier hand then me. I then came home and for the last 2 days put the finishing touches on this box. I'm glad I don't have to make anymore of those flowers for awhile. I even made water for the frog to look at with Goldens Gel Medium and Some Lindy Stamp Gang Spray. Used my Copic Markers on the Book Plate. I have to thank Amanda for teaching me how to use the Tim Holtz boxes. They are great!

Everything Grows With Love!!

Hi everyone, here is another Flower Soft Card I made using the Hedgerows Topper. I just think they are so cute and love to work with them. The card goes together really fast and easy. I used Nut Brown Flower Soft on the topper and my Sakura Gold Star Pen. Use a Martha Stewart Punch called Doily Hearts and added Prima Paper to the side with 3 Red Heart Brads. On the Topper I used the Flower Soft Peel Offs colored them using a Copic Marker. Also sprinkled Crystal Art Glitter on the Hedgehog while it was still wet to give it some sparkle.

Using ATC's On A Card

Here are a few of the ATC's I have made the past few months. I have used Flower Soft on two of them. I Really like the Mother's Day Vase and Flowers that I created using a wire and Flower Soft waiting for them to dry and then Bending them to fit in the Vase. The other one is a Retired Stamp of a Tree From Stampin Up's Branch Out Set. This one was so easy I used Tim Holtz Ink for the background  stamped the tree and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. Added Tire Swing and sprinkled Flower Soft.
 The Christmas ATC I used the Cricut and made a snow Globe really simple to do and backed with G45 Christmas paper. The Father's Day ATC is a Stamped image also from Stampin Up retired set called Thoughts of Father colored with Prisma colored pencils and background is Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.

I want to show you that you can take any ATC and turn it into a Card if you like. I colored a bunch of these cars in different colors and made Father's Day Cards for all the Guys in my family. Here is one of them.

OH So Busy....

I've been so busy lately haven't had time to set at the computer and touch base with everyone. Went to a Cricut Swarm on Saturday at Charleston Scrapbooking where all the lady's have so much fun sharing Cartridges and ideas. I worked with a Cartridge called Nate's ABCs. Since I have all grandsons it is perfect for their scrapbook pages.
Also had and ATC swap to go to on Sunday and all the ladies in this swap have so much talent. I enjoy the challenges. It is hard for me to fit my ideas into a little space. So I have to think outside the box.  Also I'm trying to finish a Tim Holtz Configuration Box for my daughter. When I finish it I will post a photo of it.
Today I'm preparing all of my kits for my class on Saturday at Scrapbook Creations. I hope to get pictures up on here later of my ATC's.

Best Wishes

This card reminds me of a Spring Day. I used one of Flower Soft's Spring Window Toppers to make this card. The card has a 3-D image when complete. I also use a cuttlebug folder and highlighted with a light pink ink over the raised image. Also used Flower Soft, Ribbon, and added the Sentiment that came with the Topper finished it off with Silver Peel Offs from Flower Soft. Hope you enjoy this card. I Love using Flower Soft it makes the finished project look Great!
