Damask Divas La Belle Vie Blog Hop

Hello and Happy New Year!  Welcome to the first Divas blog hop of the year.  If you came here from Traci Williams' blog, you are in the right place!  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

Using the beautiful La Belle Vie paper pack, I made two different projects.  First, I made an exploding box as a present for my daughter.  She turned 5 two weeks ago and I wanted to make something special and fill it with some of her favorite things.  I also made a little charm bracelet for her.
 The second layer was made with pockets for money.
 Third layer has cards for messages from mom, dad sis and brother.

 I couldn't leave little sister out 
so I made her a little something too.

The supplies that I used are :

Since I made the box a while ago, I wanted to make something new.  I decided to dress up a plain black picture frame.

Thanks for stopping by!!

 The next stop on this hop is Cydney Fowler

Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone!!!
Ready for Christmas??  I am!  I wanted to take a break and show the last minute cards I made this weekend.  I used the Pear and Partridge Paper and Cricut Artiste to cut and decorate these.
 I used the stamp sets Card Chatter - Christmas Holidays for the mitten card and Christmas Love Holidays  for the flower card.
 The flower is cut from Artiste - one at 2in and the other at 1 1/2in, spritzed with glitter and finished with a pearl.
                    I used cranberry bakers twine and shimmer trim to embellish this mitten card.
                 The mittens are cut at two inches and I used the craft room to make a shadow.
           These were fairly quick and pretty easy to make, with the right supplies of course ;)
