Getting ready for Valentines...

I am so happy for the start of this new year and thankfully one of the first holidays is Valentines and it's my favorite one.  I love all the papers and other goodies you get to create with and it's been fun creating for my DT with all of their gorgeous products too.  So today i have a pretty card that i 
made with a stamp set I got from Penny Black last year.  It's filled with lots of fun sayings so i am sure i will have more to share in the next couple of weeks.  

The papers are from Graphic 45's Mon Amour set and the flowers are a mixture of things in my stash that went really good with this really gorgeous paper line.  I love the muted colors and prints, they are the perfect size and colors to mix and match.

The dies i used are of course from Spellbinders.  I used the basic circle and lacy circles to cut the paper and the tiny doily is from Ruby Rock-its new fundamentals.  The stamp fit perfectly in the center of it.  I hope that you like it.  

Thanks for dropping by and i hope that you have a really nice weekend!!

Time for Tea and a blog hop too...

Hi and welcome to our first Craft Hoarders blog hop of the new year 2017... I hope that your holidays were really fun and you all got lots of time off to spend doing fun things with family and friends.  I spent lots of time at the castle this year which was really fun but did get a few moments to spend with my family to relax so it was a wonderful holiday for me.

If you started the hop in the beginning then you should have arrived from Bonnie's blog....

Today i have a few projects to share that i did for Ruby Rock-it's Faded Empire Collection.  This beautiful line was one of my favorites and i went a little crazy making up some things for a tea party and would also work great for Valentines. The paper line had lots of tags and other fun embellishments and gorgeous victorian papers to create cards, tags and boxes with.  All the fancy edges i have on them are from Spellbinders dies... i have so many of them it's really nice to be able and use them for lots of projects i have....but you can use punches to achieve some of the same ideas.

These projects are my favorites.  Not only for the pretty colors in the papers but also for the pretty princess diecuts that they have to go with the paper line.  It was really fun to do this.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to finish the hop by stopping over to
