La La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - The Recipe!

Hello friends!

The theme for this week's La La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday is The Recipe. And here it is....

A splash of blue, a hint of pink
3 squares, a circle, a dab of ink
A touch of cute, and buttons bright
Add die cuts plenty 'til it's just right

Here is my take on the recipe... can you find the squares and circle? ♥

Altered Shabby Chic Pumpkin and tutorial!

Hello my friends and happy Sunday! It's definitely a Sunday "Fun Day" for me today because I finally got some quiet time to myself in my craft room to complete some projects. ♥

For today's post, I want to share a Shabby Chic pumpkin that I altered with some gorgeous laces and embellishments from The Piece by Piece. I just love, love, love Beverly's laces. They are so intricate and beautiful. I used a few of them on this project. ♥

First let me share some photos. Then I hope you'll join me in my YouTube video for a beginning-to-end tutorial showing you how this altered pumpkin came together...

Here is the video tutorial showing you how I created this shabby chic pumpkin. ♥

I hope you give one of these a try, they are so fun to make!

Be sure to stop over at Bev's store, where she carries everything from lace to papers, and more! ♥

LLLC Inspiration Friday: Halloween or Fall!

Happy Friday my friends!
What a week it's been, but most exciting is the change of weather here in California which signals the welcoming of the Fall season! I love Fall with the cool crisp air and falling leaves.... it's SO beautiful outside! And... yes, we get to break out with our cute boots and scarves --- yay!!

This week's Inspiration Friday theme is Halloween or Fall.  I created a card using the fabulously spooky Zombie Marci. As scary as she may seem, she is still the most adorable, right?!

I used my Prisma color pencils for this image, a change up from my Copic markers. 
I love coloring with Prisma to get a "soft" blend in the color...

Thank you so much for joining me today!

LLLC Inspiration Friday: Oodles of Doodles!

Hi my friends!

I'm here again this week with a La La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday Project to share with you!
This week's theme: "Oodles of Doodles"! ♥

I dug deep into my La La Land Crafts stamp collection and found sweet little Watercan Marci. It was exciting to be able to color her up again after so long. Don't you dare forget about your older LLLC stamps! Marci is just as adorable now as she was years back! ♥ And the good news is Watercan Marci and a lot of your old Marci favorites are still available at the La La Land Crafts store!

For today's project, I created a shabby chic card...

You'll see me use LLLC's Open Leaf Flourish die ALOT... it's my all time fav to layer with roses! ♥

I paper pieced little Marci and accented her dress and visor with Recollections pearls...

I used dimensionals to "raise" the flower on her visor... ♥

Copic Colors: 
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, BV00, R20
Hair: E23, E27, E29
Flower: R20, R00
Dots on Boots: R20
