Follow Your Dreams ♥️

Hello, treasured friends! After a month away, I am ecstatic to be back! I am beyond anxious to visit you and see what you have been up to... I dearly miss you when I'm away. Today I am sharing a wee bit of inspiration on the Live & Love Crafts blog.

Originally this post was to be Christmassy, but after getting married last week my heart has been aflutter... so butterflies and flowers it is. ♥️ My card features an all-time favorite collection: Pion Design's Paris Flea Market.
This set is for my sweetest and dearest friend in appreciation of how richly she blessed me and my sweetheart on our special day. Rather than a typical thank you, I am encouraging her as she does us.. and pairing it with a little keepsake wedding cake!
These beautiful Pion papers set a perfect backdrop for a butterfly garden of hope and dreams. My card base was created with Go Kreate's Frame Frilly 7.
The whimsical Wycinanka Louvre Frame has been adorned with pure white WOC blossoms and a sprinkling of Star Dust. This is one of my ultimate favorite chippies! It is encircled with Rockabilly ruffle trim, the most darling polka dot trim I have ever used. Wycinanka's Summer Wedding Border adds extra butterfly love.
Isabelle lace and shabby seam binding provide delicacy and softness. The butterflies throughout are also from Paris Flea Market. The Wycinanka sentiment is from the Catch Your Dreams collection. ♥️
Lastly, the sweet Wycinanka 3D Lacy Cake has been adorned with equally sweet Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.The chipboard pieces have been painted with white acrylic paint... I am enamored with this 3D offering from Wycinanka and had such fun with it. Pink Pearl Garland is woven throughout, while stunning Pearl Lace with Beads trims each cake layer.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥️

Happy November, dear friends! Please forgive my delay in visiting... how I miss you. I became quite ill over the weekend, but am slowly on the mend.

Today begins new challenges at Live & Love Crafts and Deep Ocean! (I am combining due to my health.) At LLC we are celebrating White Christmas, while at Deep Ocean we are playing with Dies/Punches. I hope you can join us for some crafty fun!
I have combined two gorgeous Pion Design collections for my wintry scene. The focal point is from Glistening Season, which is nestled within a beautiful Wycinanka Loveliness 2 frame. The snowy papers are from Greetings from the North Pole.
My poinsettias are Cheery Lynn dies, which I have centered with Pearl Stamen and embossed with Shabby White Frantage. Sparkly Pomegranate Apples are tucked in for extra touches of holiday red. The bottom corner features sweet cinnamon sticks and part of a Wycinanka Reindeer Border as a pendant.
Tucked within the top of the pretty Isabelle lace is Wycinanka's Snowflake Border. Snow Writer (topped with Glamour Dust for Christmas sparkle) adds snowy detailing throughout. The card base was made with Go Kreate Frame Frilly 10 dies. I am sad that it was rushed to completion from not feeling well... I hope it brings love and joy to the recipient, despite willy nilly spots not quite done as planned.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful day!

Hello, sweet friends! After a mini break due to life, I am happy to be back and will be visiting you this weekend. (Yay!) Thank you again for sticking with me! I am grateful for you. ♥️

Today I am sharing a wee bit of inspiration on the Live & Love Crafts blog. To celebrate a special occasion, I used lovely papers from Maja Design's Vintage Romance and a gorgeous Wycinanka chippie.
Wycinanka's Large Clock is painted with white acrylic paint, centered with a stunning Button Etoile, and adorned with a sprinkling of pearls. My sentiment is from Maja's Vintage Autumn Basics, which pairs perfectly with the focal point and the memories to be celebrated and made.
Nestled within the floral arrangement are two beautiful vintage pins: Capped Teardrops and Maya Road Heart Pins. The sweet Love Heart Clip is also from Maya Road, from which dangles a pretty Leaves Chain charm.
Several trims from Sandy's inspiring collection add layers of softness and elegance. One of my favorite parts of the design process is choosing the trims... they make my heart flutter. ♥️

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :)
