Brick Wall Birthday

The Brick Wall TIEF is such fun! So excited to get a chance to play with this embossing folder. One of my favorite techniques is sponging colors, it adds depth to your project. This embossing folder showcases that technique. I added some pretty flowers to the brick wall from the Wild About Flowers stamp set. The finishing touches are the Pool Party/Gold Baker's Twine (Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit) and a gold foil Dragonfly! Thanks so much for stopping by, please leave me a comment!

Home Sweet Home


I love quaint cottages surrounded by flowers! I created this little yellow cottage with its white window boxes filled with flowers, using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies. The cottage has a white arched door and white arched windows, topped with a shaker tile roof. I plan to fill this little cottage with treats (what else but Lemon Drop candy!). I left the two top panels (roof) open to access the treats and glued shut the bottom. The front door has a Rhinestone door knob and the door does open!!! The Sweet Home stamp set and matching Home Sweet Home Thinlits are a carryover for next year's catalog! Yay! Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment.

Build a Birthday - #GDP077

Build a Birthday stamp set is a great birthday set, you can change the look so easily by changing the colors of the layers. I chose these colors for a Global Design Project Color Challenge #GDP077.
I love chocolate cake, so most of my cake layers will be chocolate!!! I added a leaf border from the Ready to Pop stamp set. Another great set! Thanks so much for stopping by, please leave me a comment!
