Make a Wish #AJVD

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today I am sharing a Spring Birthday card using A Jillian Vance Design's Birthday Art stamp, DCWV Flower Shop Stack and matching Prima flowers, love when that happens.

The card measures 5"x7" and I used various pattern paper from the stack.  I stamped the Birthday Art stamp on a cut out that measures 2"x3".  I used the Stamp Perfect to help with the alignment.

I layered 3 of the petals to make the flowers and used the sequins for the flower centers.  I also used some of the sequins to embellish the card.

Today is also my last day with AJVD Design Team.  I was blessed to guest design in the Fall for 3 months and then asked to stay on the Design Team for another 3 months.  It's been a wonderful 6 months working with Jillian and Bunny.  Thank you!

Planner Page Mark #DCWVPlanner

Today I am sharing how I use the A Jillian Vance Design's new Minnie Pearl Bookmark die in my DCWV Moment Maker Planner.

I first die cut the bookmark and then stamped with the coordinating Be Still Bookmark Stamp.  I used the Stamp Perfect to help with the placement of the stamp.

I used a pigment ink in grape and tied a bit of ribbon on top of the bookmark.  I then punched the holes on the bookmark and added it to my planner.  I am will be using the backside as a journaling spot.

I then layered a few strips of washi tape on the upper right side of my monthly page and glued the die cut word Blessed.

The Bookmark stamps are perfect for Bible journaling too.  I look forward in sharing more of my planner pages next week.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy your day.

DIY Easter Bags

Happy Thursday, today I am sharing my DIY Easter gift bags made of out of 12"x12" light weight paper.

I used Simply Said: He is Risen stamp set, the mini bow from the Mini Bag Mega Die Set and a couple of the banners from the Banner {die}tails Nested dies.

To make the bag, I followed the tutorial here making adjustments to the size of the paper; 12"w x 10"h, scored 3" at the bottom and 2" on top.  

Here are the completed bags; they  are 5" in height with a 2" flap facing the back of the bag.  I used washi tape to seal.  The paper is light weight and it's by DCWV.

I added rhinestones to embellish and topped it off with the pink dotty bows.

I hope you enjoyed my project, have a great day!

Moment Maker Planner by DCWV

Hello and welcome!  I'm so ecstatic to introduce DCWV's new planner system, Moment Maker Planner!

I've been waiting anxiously for the Moment Maker Planner and I am excited to share with you today.
Here is the red binder I received, a gorgeous red 6 ring binder with gold accents. The Moment Maker Planner binder was designed to carry 3 months and it can be customized to Make It Yours.

The Starter Kit includes acetate gold monthly dividers, a gold foil planner sticker sheet, monthly calendars and 3 pocket pages.

Here is a look at the monthly calendar and the backside of March and April's Master Task List.

Make It Yours!  Yes, you choose the format that works best for you!  There is a Professional Daily Planner pages and Artistic Daily Planner pages.  Need extra writing space, there is a Notebook available too.

Here is a look at the Daily Planner pages.  I am choosing the Artistic Daily Planner pages.  The pages have plenty of space for my daily tasks, jotting down a favorite or scripture, journal or add a photo right onto the daily notes page.

This is the basic setup in my Moment Maker Planner.  I am starting with February and have included March and April.  I love it!  It's functional, it's great for memory keeping and so loving all the gold foil accents too!  Do you see the heart on the side pocket!? 

I included the Dates to Remember booklet to the back of my planner.  The binder was designed to hold 3 months, so this booklet will come in handy not only for birthdays, anniversaries but upcoming meetings/events.  When it's time to shuffle in the next 3 months, I will reference the Dates to Remember.

There is a Fitness Tracker, Meal Tracker and a Wardrobe Planner, functional Planner Stamps and your choice of Planner Charms.

It's in all in the details!  I just love the charm holder on the front cover!  Lift the band on the right, choose your Planner Charms and slide them on!  It's that easy!

Please stay tuned as I will be sharing more of my Moment Maker Planner in the upcoming weeks!
Until then, keep your eyes on your local Hobby Lobby store to get your Moment Maker planner system!
Thank you for visiting.

Easter Blessings #AJVD

Greetings!  Today I am sharing an Easter card I made using A Jillian Vance Design's He is Risen stamp set, {die}verse Tag die and {die}luxe Jewelry Tags die.

I purchased pastel 6" x 6" paper, itty bitty flowers and a new ombre ink pad to create Easter cards.
I cut an 8 1/2" x 11" pink card stock to make an A2 card.  I cut the teal pattern paper for the front panel and when I opened the flower package, they fell all over my card and I liked it!!  Love how they scattered, so I snapped a quick photo so I could recreate it.

I added a gold foil doily, trimmed a border, added gold cording, cut the tags and stamped the sentiment using the ombre ink.

I glued down the flowers using the photo I snapped to guide me.   I love these itty bitty flowers! Need to go back and purchase the other color assortments.

Thank you for visiting, until next time!

Felt Flowers #AJVD

Easter is April 16th and I am getting my cards ready.  Today I am sharing an Easter card I made using the new Pansy die set, He is Risen stamp set and the Banner {die}tails by A Jillian Vance Design.

I had scraps of felt from a previous project and I used it to create the pansies.  I cut them on the Cut N Boss since it has more pressure, they cut with ease.  

I love how the pansies turned out.  I stamped the scripture from Simply Said: He is Risen set with metallic gold ink and swirly bling.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much  as I enjoyed making it. 

Please don't forget to take advantage of the current 50% sale in the shop.  Lots of fun goodies.
