Hi everyone, well summer is truly here !!!! Hope you are enjoying your time. Today I have a fun project that I have been wanting to do for quite some time. I love to change my decor out to different seasons and in June I changed my kitchen area to lemon yellow, black and white. I love the contrast. Well what would go perfect on some decor but Reneabouquets NEW Lemon Blossom Collection.
I had purchased this cute little cutting board from the Dollar Tree months ago and knew that it would be involved in project eventually. I began by decoupaging a buffalo check black and white napkin to the front of the board. I then gave it a light dry brushing of white gesso. Once dry I gave it a layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint for a pretty shine. I then assembled the Large Rectangular Shaker Box DIY Kit (also new to the store). I filled it with some pretty shaker items, No Hole Pearl Glass Microbeads, No Hole Lime Green Glass Microbeads, Gawdie Girl Diamond Chunky German Glitter Glass, Printed Beautiful Board Large Tuck It In Lemon Blossoms Chipboard, and also from my stash assorted sequins in coordinating colors.
The gorgeous bee used here is Lemon Blossom Bees Premium Paper Body with Double Wing Layers .The NEW Printed Beautiful Board Large Lemon Blossom Corners were used at the bottom and I added Hand Tinted Buttercream Gawdie Girl Chunky Glitter Glass to the lemons.
The top of the cutting board was decorated with a messy bow, some jute and Honey Roses And Leaves Mulberry Paper Flowers. I then took the Printed Beautiful Board Large Lemon Blossom Branches and once again added more of the Hand Tinted Buttercream Gawdie Girl Chunky Glitter Glass to the lemons. Below is a video tutorial for your pleasure.
I hope you enjoyed this project, I can't wait to display this in my hutch. Until next time.... blessings.

Hi everyone, hope you are having a wonderful month. Today I have a frame I picked up at the Dollar Store and altered it to suit one of my favorite photos of my little furry boy Bubba. This is such an easy project how you can take something inexpensive and customize it for yourself.

The paper collection I used is Mintay "Homemade" and I did some fussy cutting of some of the images to place on dimensional foam. Beautiful Words Medium Bon Appetit Laser Cut Chipboard was the perfect title for this layout. I colored it with some Distressed Inks and added a coat of Rock Candy Crackle Paint. Then applied some Art Alchemy Wax in White Pearl to bring forth the cracks from the paint. The hearts I used, Beautiful Board Victorian Heart Doilies Laser Cut Chipboard Set, I applied the same mediums to them as well. I cut heart shapes out of the cardstock to have a different color cardstock peeking through the beautiful board. Down towards the bottom I added one of RB trinkets which is the Silver Spoons Trinket Pack. In the very center of the layout I used Beautiful Board Medium Romantic Heart Pattern Laser Cut Chipboard.
The sweet tiny butterflies used here are the Butterfly Kisses Delicate Beauty Single Side Printed Butterflies. The florals I used from RB store are the Itty Bitty Blossoms and Leaves Timeless Blue, Mini Dusty Blue & Ivory Mulberry Paper Roses, and the Antique Linen Roses. Tucked inside the florals are the Beautiful Board Bits Skeleton Leaf Laser Cut Chipboard and Beautiful Board Bits Rose Leaf Laser Cut Chipboard. And what would my layout be without adding a bit of sparkle to the layout with Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter, which looks just like sugar on this layout. I hope you enjoyed and to watch my layering process I have provided you a video below. Wishing you a wonderful rest of the month of May.

I started my project off using the Beautiful Board 4D Purse With Small Shelf Do It Yourself Laser Cut Chipboard Kit. The paper collection I chose was Stamperia "Threads" I cut the paper to the sizes needed to cover the purse and then I machine stitched around all the pieces. This kit is so easy to put together, you can also visit HERE to watch the assembly tutorial. I also have my process video below so you can watch me create this project. I did some fussy cutting of the paper collection and to enhance the cuttings I used Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter Glass. The butterfly I used on the front of the purse are the Butterfly Kisses Cherry Blossom Single Side Printed Butterflies.
This 4D purse also comes with this sweet little shelf that allows you to decorate it. I decided to use the Beautiful Board Small Wire Dress Form Chipboard. The dress form comes with a two little clothes hangers so I attached them onto some metal hitches to the back of the shelf. Then using some Reneabouquets Trim-Ivory Pleated Tulle, I created a little skirt for the dress form. I then added some itsy bitsy buttons to a glass corked jar. Inside the purse comes to slots to hold different items and I created here a tag, stitched around it and decorated it with Beautiful Board Small Button Doll Laser Cut Chipboard. I also created a policy envelope to hold photos.
To go with this sweet purse I made an accordion mini album, you can watch me create this in the video below. To decorate the front and back covers of the album I used Beautiful Board Linoleum Elements Laser Cut Chipboard. I then applied some Beautiful Beads Sweetheart Candy Flatback Pearls randomly on the panels. The flowers I used on the purse and the mini album are Mini Whisper Pink Mulberry Paper Roses & Leaves Set, and the leaves are Beautiful Bits - Skeleton Leaf Laser Cut Chipboard. The front focal point on the mini album I used Beautiful Board Medium Follow Your Heart Doilies Chipboard and the icing on the cake is the White Pearl And Rhinestone Button Set Of 2. The butterfly used here is Butterfly Kisses Aurora Borealis Pink Single Side Printed Butterflies,
Pictured here is the inside of the accordion mini album. Also pictured is the side of the purse which I created a dangle to hang and added several different charms, Shabby Sweet Scissors In Silver., thimble, pearls, spool of thread, bobbin etc. I hope you were able to gather some inspiration. Wishing you a month filled with creativity!

Hi everyone, it's Toni here today and I'm here to share a couple of fun cards created for Easter.
For my second card I decided to emboss in silver our Beautiful Board Word Happy Easter for my focal point. Also adhering it to acetate for a floating effect.The butterfly I chose to add to this card is the Lavender Fairy Dust Premium Paper Glitter Glass Butterfly. The flowers I added are the Purple Roses and Leaves and also the Plum Roses and Leaves. I also added some Beautiful Beads Candy in Lavender on the top of the embossed flowers. To finish off both card fronts, it's very subtle but adds just the perfect bit of sparkle I added Gawdie Girl Fine German Glass Glitter. It provides a soft sugary look to the cards without over doing it.

Inside I placed lots of yummy shaker goodies from the store, such as Beautiful Bits Tiny Hearts, Gold Chunky German Glass Glitter, Beautiful Beads Hearts Of Glass, Pale Pink Glass Microbeads, Pink Hand tinted Chunky Glitter Glass, & Ocean Hand tinted Chunky Glitter Glass.
On top of the shaker box I used our NEW Happy Valentines Chipboard Piece and I embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then our sweetest NEW little flowers were place around the frame of the shaker box. I used Itty Bitty Blossoms in Pink and White, Itty Bitty Blossoms in Pink, Itty Bitty Blossoms in Seafoam and Itty Bitty Blossoms in Seafoam and White. I then added some Skeleton Leaves Chipboard around the florals.
