Prima Doll Parade

We're having a Prima Doll Parade today at Embrace Your Art from a swap we just had.  I only have three Prima Dolls and since I was indecisive I made two for my partner.  They are Megan and Suzi.  Stickles was added to the jacket I made for her as well as the bottom of her dress and shoes. Below is a close up.

This is the tag in it's entirety.

With this Prima Doll I used embossing powder on the sentiment and flock for the sand at the bottom of her feet.

With Heartfelft Sympathy

Just a quick post for this sympathy card I made at a crop last night with an inspired MOJO Monday sketch.  The papers from  Paper House Colorways. It's quite simple.  It's stamped with no coloring or embellishments, which is not my style.  You know what?  I love it!  Make it a great day bloggers!

African Violet Burlap Wreath

My "Delta" mother went to glory on my birthday.  It still doesn't seem real, but I know she is helping God run things in heaven.  She and my mother were the same age and had the same morals and discipline.  Ma Mildred as she was affectionately called, was a wise woman and full of knowledge in Delta Sigma Theta sorority. She was a beautiful soul, always giving, and teaching and checking to make sure all things were "Decent and In Order".  This wreath was suppose to go on the door of a session she was going to teach at our reclamation after we heard of her sudden death.  I finally finished it.

Our Reclamation was a cowboy theme and I have photos of the table decors to share with you.  My Crafty sisters Rhoda, Nicole and Samantha came to my rescue to help assist with completing the table decors for the event.  This is what we started with.  All purchased from Michael's.


The Finished Touch

Hope you enjoyed the visit here.  Your comments are certainly encouraging.  
I will be sure to stop by your blog and leave a little love as well.  Happy Paper Crafting!

My Art Angel

Although paper crafting is my first preference, I sometimes play around with paint.  I checked out Tiare's 'My Art Angel' online class featured on Embrace Our Art.  It was fun and I got so carried away I couldn't sleep. We were to add a heart and one word.  My word is faith.  One of my sorority sister's gifted me with a few crafty items since she was not using them.  One of the items was a blank canvas mini purse measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  This is my creation and I can't wait to wear it!  Now I have to figure out what I will paint on the other side.

Illustrated Faith

OH my....I LOVE this paper stack.  I couldn't stop creating and have enough paper left to make a few tags or cards.  It's an overload of photos, but I wanted you to see everything I created.

This is the layout I made to create the card using one 8 1/2 x 11 plain card stock.  

Here's the inside view when you flip up the front cover.  The top pink piece has white sheets of paper to journal.  I just love the Spellbinder typewriter at the bottom!  I use it often.

This is the view when you open the bottom flap over to the left.  It's a few tags stuffed inside the Martha Stewart's edge punch.  The white flowers was a RAK from my sorority sister.

This is the back cover using Our Daily Bread Boho background die.

This is the front page of the card stock and since I loved all the papers I used it for the cover of my journal.

A few sheets of papers, stickers, and sentiments from the stack was used.  Lace and washi tape was added and I used a black watercolor pencil to make the papers and  embellishments stand out.

Below are three journals I made for my missionary sisters and added things in my stash along with scriptures.

This card was inspired by Viva La Verve August week 1 sketch.

Thank you for stopping by.  Let me know what you think about my creations!!!

I wanted to play with a few of my latest Sizzix items purchased and gifted.  This is Sweet Lil Easter Dress Phoebe by Robert Jackson digitals eager to put a SMILE on someone's face.  I purchased the Sizzix thinlits words from and used my Sizzix oval framelet from a RAK by Ometa.  Mojo Monday was my chosen sketch for this card.
