Home Decor with Crafter's Companion


I designed a few things for the sets at HSN using products by Crafter's Companion.
These are so easy to duplicate for your own home and wanted to show you how...

The letters above are just paper mache from Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
Turn them upside down onto Purple Luxury Cardstock, trace and cut out.
Adhere to the paper mache letter.
Decorate with satin ribbon and paper flowers as I have done here using Rustic Cottage Aged Rose die. The pretty swirls are Rustic Cottage Filigree Flourish dies using the Purple Luxury Mirrored Cardstock.

A matching pail from the $1.50 bin at Target...spray painted the bottom with Purple.
Added the same Aged Roses, swirl and a bit of netting.

Look for the above cardstocks and dies on the Crafter's Companion site HERE

And sticking with my Purple and Teal theme.....
I watercolored one of the new 9 x 12 Spectrum Noir Colorista pads with Colorista Aqua pencils.
Trimmed the page and added it to a white shadowbox.
Ribbons around the corner tie the three creations together.

The new SpectrumNoir Colorista pads and pencils just debuted a couple of days ago on HSN and are available at their site.

Encouragement Challenge with Calling All Sistahs

Hello, hello.....

It's time for a new challenge at Calling All Sistahs.

Here is the inspiration photo/color combo:

I spy with my little eye..Navy, Blue, Kraft, beach

So I mostly went with the color combo. I did think the stenciling looked a bit like water splashes. :)

This challenge is all about encouragement. 
There is someone in your circle of friends that could use a pick me up snail mail card from you today.
You might as well play along!

I used the sentiment from the Pretty Posies stamp set and the tiny ribbon as embellishment from the Word Ribbon stamp set.

I hope you will join us at Calling All Sistahs for this months challenge.
Any stamps/dies does not matter...anyone can win.
If the winner is using Cas-ual Fridays products on their encouragement card, they win double the amount on a gift certificate....SAY WHAT?!?
Use the code above for a nice discount!!!

Calling All's time!!!!

Happy 17th of August!!!!

This is your reminder message to check the SISTAHS!
If you are over the age of 16, you should be doing a monthly check in the much easier when those puppies are all soaped up.

By now I would think you know that I had Breast Cancer....however if you are new to this blog hop, then I guess you are just learning this.

Breast Cancer effects 1 in 8 women.

Look around yourself today at work, church, the grocery store.....yep, someone there is going to get this dreaded disease.

There is no cure...YET!

But you can catch it early with self exams and yearly Mammograms.

My card today (as most of my Breast Cancer cards are) was created with :

Cas-ual Fridays: Word Ribbon stamp.
(The adorable pinwheel is the ribbon from Hope Ribbon set, stamped several times then trimmed)

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the monthly challenge at

Holiday Card Kits with Crafter's Companion


OK..I just have to say...
How stinkin' cute!

These new Holiday Luxury Card Kits are going to sell  F A S T  !!!

All you need to play with these card kits are glue or foam adhesive and scissors.

For anyone that wants to make a beautiful handmade card...this is for you!

The kit includes 20 large base cards (I really don't see anyone making that large of a card, so you will want to cut them in half giving you 40 base cards).
you get a sheet of pop out embellishments for each card base (again, enough embellishments for at least two cards, if not more)

But you all know me....I had to step it up a little.
I die cut the Circle Centre Create a Card from Luxury Silver Mirror Cardstock.
Then die cut the edges from one of the bases in the Card Kit.
The center and back are the pop out embellishments.

You will find these kits on 

August 16th.

They will sell fast so set your calendar
or better yet...
check out the HSN website.
