The Pins Have It...

Hey y'all!

I hope everyone is doing well as we come to the end of summer and most of y'all have got the kidlets in school. Woohoo...time to get on with the crafting huh? I've been having a blast over at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack making things that I never would have thought of...check out my latest creations:

Blue, the color that I love...these quilt blocks worked perfect for these pin cushions.

Think pink - with added swirls, everything was made pretty.

The orange is so cool - the matching pins really set the tone.

You can't go wrong with black - add organza ribbon and elegance is right around the corner.

It may not look it but this is purple - with the added roses, it became gorgeous!

I just loved the yellow - with the pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty, it just became super lovely.

White became like a cute little wedding favor - I really loved the organza floral from Pizzazz Aplenty. With the added organza ribbon and tule, this became an elegant pin cushion.

I had fun making these and you can find the tutorial from our lovely Ms. Dee on her UTube channel and you can see more at The Shack.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look - have a great weekend! :-)

A New Challenge at Stampin' Dymonz Creative Space

Good morning everyone!

Today we are happy to present a new challenge over at Stampin' Dymonz Creative Space! This week, we made a tag using this sketch:

Here's my take on this challenge:

Your tag must have a functional folder on the front and the piece of paper inside of the folder must be in the shape of a tag.

This week's challenge will have you put your spin on this sketch, including the following elements -- your tag must have a functional folder on the front and the piece of paper inside of the folder must be in the shape of a tag. I used DCWV Lemon Flower matstack and DCWV Tradewinds card stock matstack.

There should be space on the tag for a small photo and some journaling. This space can be on the inside and/or the outside of the folder and/or the inserted tag.

Why not join us this week? Put your spin on this sketch. Check out Stampin' Dymonz Creative Space for more details and get your chance to win a fabulous prize!

Happy Crafting! :-)

Oooh...Look What I Got!

Hello everyone,

So, I received my cigar box from my partner and isn't it fun how something you've seen on a video looks so awesome in person?

Isn't it gorgeous? The ballerina was so me when I first saw it and I wished for it. Lo and behold, it became mine. Isn't that ribbon skirt perfect and clever? I love the lollipop flowers with the feathers. The trim is elegant as well - a fantastic cigar box, now jewelry box for me.

Lia, who organized this swap, made this brilliant piece of art work. There are legs but I've got to re-glue them as they came off during shipping. No matter as it still is gorgeous. I love the lace and the bling - beautiful pearls!

Look at the inside. See those sides - she ink distressed those and filled them in I believe - how clever! And another beautiful flower adorning it. Isn't the top sensational with those beautiful stick pins? Everything adorned so wonderfully just for me - look at the butterfly - simply amazing!

Look at the wonderful goodies I received with my package. She really tailored this gift especially for me. Don't you love the lace on those old fashioned clothes pins?

The blue and gold sachet bags hold a bevy of beautiful butterflies. Look at the tons of bling on the side - yep, craft heaven, y'all! Lia really surprised me being my partner and I'm so grateful that she put her heart into this magnificent gift. I love all the goodies and will enjoy crafting with it. The cigar box, now jewelry box will be cherished forever! Thank you Lia! :-)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Happy Crafting!
