Holiday Loaded Envelope swap!

I attended the La-La Land Palooza craft retreat last year and had a blast! I participated in a Loaded Envelope Swap, my first one, and had a great time putting it together.  

I used Christmas Bell Marci as my image for the envelope and colored her with Copic Markers. 

I made the envelope and decorated it with Christmas papers. I made the rosette and found a beautiful red flower with stones for the center. I filled the envelope with tags and goodies.  It was a LOT of fun to make.  xoxo

Birthday Cupcakes! (and a confession)

Ok, I have a confession to make.  I sometimes get so excited and in a hurry to download/print and color an image that I'm not too careful about making a note of where said image came from.  Since it's a digi, there's no packaging to refer back too. (heavy sigh).  This is one of those "said images", but I wanted to show her off, cause I think she's gorgeous!  

If you recognize her, please make mention below so that I can give credit where credit is due. I did an internet search for girl holding cupcakes and I had NO IDEA how many images there were.  Unfortunately, this one didn't pop up. 

Back to the beautiful girl...I colored her with Copic markers and added some shimmer here and there.  I used Nuvo drops on the background to add a little extra sparkle and she was ready to mail to a friend.  (Love you Pat!)  xoxo

Thinking of you Abella

I love this beautiful girl from Stamping Bella.  She is "thinking of you and all of our good times together".  The image and sentiment are perfect together.  There is also a die available for this stamp. 

I used Cryogen white, Curious Metallics paper for this image, so there is a faint shimmer all over. I colored her with Copic markers, added some pretty papers, and mailed her to a friend.  xoxo

Holiday Petals and Loaded Envelope

Ya I know, it's January, but I'm still catching up on my blog posts from 2017.  
I've been slackin!! 

"Holiday Petals" is another really cute digital image from Mariko Creations. I colored him with Copic markers and used him on a tag that I included on a loaded envelope that I made for a friend. He has such friendly eyes!  xoxo

Sweet little Unicorn from Mariko...

Hi everyone.  I have another digi today from Mariko Creations.  This sweet little unicorn is sitting pretty on a wreath of flowers.  She has wings, so of course I had to have her resting on a cloud. 

I colored her with Copic markers and added some sparkle here and there.  Some Nuvo drops and the sentiment finished it perfectly.    xoxo

"Thank You" from Mariko creations

I just love these flowers on this image.  It's clean and simple, but elegant at the same time.  I can see me using it over and over.....The image includes the heart with sentiment.

I colored the image with Copic markers. A hearts embossing folder was perfect for the background. I added some die cuts on the corners and this card was ready to go in the mail.
