Set of Holiday Snowman Gift Tags Joy Happy Love

Here is a set of holiday tags with the snowmen on kraft color paper.
I love how the colors pop this way.


Sentiment:  Joy Happy Love

My favorite thing about this snowman is the hair.  How FUN.
We don't get to play in the snow here in Florida, but we do make sand snowmen.  haha

Here is a quick video tutorial for these cute Christmas snowman tags:

Watercolor Daisies Miss You Handmade Card

Today, I am up on the Unity blog with this daisy card.


Sentiment:  I miss you a little too much, a little too often & a little more every day.

Watercolor was used to color in the daisies.  I trimmed the card using lace, lacey die-cuts and patterned paper.  I wanted it to have a warm country look.

Here is a quick tip video tutorial for this daisy card.


And here it is a little closer:



Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. There Are Always Flowers July 2017 Layers of Life and Too Much Too Often Daisies; Prima water soluble oil pastels, lace and BasicGrey paper.

Bible Journal Girl ~ Today is a Gift

** For the Unity blog hop post, scroll down or click HERE. **

** For the CardMaker / Craftin Desert Divas blog hop post, scroll down or click HERE. **

Today, I am sharing another bible journal page.


Sentiment:  Today is a gift.

For this page, I combined stamping, coloring and rub-on embellishments.
For the girl, I used Copic markers and fine liner pens on trimmed cardstock.  When I color with Copics, I always do so on a separate paper piece because of the bleed through of the ink.
I do this with stamping sometimes too, depending on the ink used.

I used a sheet of decorative rub-on embellishments that easily added a pretty background for this planner girl and sentiment.

If you would like to see more of my bible journaling projects, click bible journal.
I documented different techniques while experimenting with decorating on the thin bible pages.

Here is a quick tip video of this planner girl page.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. Planner Gal:  Today, Copic markers, cardstock, Fancy Pants Designs rub-ons, My Creative Bible, Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens.

Thanks for visiting.
