Happy Spring!

Spring is finally here!  I've been inspired to create with beautiful, bright colors lately and the new Coloringz from Shimmerz are so bright, lively and gorgeous!  These sprays are all color with no shimmer.  You can order them directly from the Shimmerz website here.  Check them out!!

You add the shimmer of your choice over the top with these beautiful babies...

My favorite of the Shimmeringz is Goldie Lox!  I used it on these butterflies over the Coloringz on this card...
To make the clouds, I used a template, stipple brush and Under The Sea Blingz paint.
(I also used a little bit of the Under The Sea Blingz on the blue butterfly)
I've got lots of Shimmerz projects to post here (I'm playing catch up!) so check back soon!
Thanks for stopping by today.


Another pillow project...

My friend Wendy wanted to give her sister Shannon a special gift for her recent birthday. I mean really, what do you give the woman who has everything? ;) So... Wendy asked me to make Shan a pillow and here's the result...



I made the flowers on this pillow with ribbon as well. Shannon loved it and that makes me happy!

Sewing project...

Hi there!  Recently I completed a couple of sewing projects.  Here is one of them that I made for my bestie Wendy, aka "Wonder Woman".  :)

I made the brown flowers out of brown satin ruffled ribbon.  I made the taupe and brown flowers by twisting a double sided ribbon.
Wendy really loves this photo pillow that I made for her for a birthday gift.  I love giving things that I make myself.  It means so much.
Thanks for stopping by today!


Valentines Day home decor project

Here is a Valentine's Day home decor project that I created using the new Coloringz from Shimmerz Paints called My Bleeding Heart.  It is my favorite new color, a gorgeous  bright red!
I used Goldie Lox Shimmeringz over the red.  I also used Goldie Lox Shimmeringz on the little heart in the middle.


I got the idea for this ruffled heart from a video that Rhonna Farrer but on her blog about a year ago.  She used some tan colored (unbleached) coffee filters and hot glued them into an empty heart shaped candy box.   I loved the project she made but thought it would look so hot in a bright red!  I used My Bleeding Heart Coloringz over the tan coffee filters and the coverage of this paint is so amazing!
Check out the Shimmerz Blog for a cool video and some more ideas for these fantastic new products!
