A Parade of Pink-a-licious-ness!!

Hello & Happy Monday to you all!!  Hope the weekend was good to ya!  I had a great, relaxing weekend--got some rest in, got some work done & spent time with the family!  I had a nice lil' "field trip" to AC Moore & JoAnn's--LOL--got some new goodies that I used on some of my projects today.  I really need to stop getting stuff cuz' I tell you--I HAVE TOO MUCH! LOL!  Seriously, I have so much un-opened things that it's ridiculous & I dig thru this big bin that I keep all my new stuff in and it's crazy over-filled I tell ya--what is wrong with me, hee hee!  I need a 12 step program for "How to stop buying craft supplies" ya know--anyone else want to join this group with me?  (giggle)

Big thank you's to everyone who welcomed me into the "SCS Dirty Dozen Team"--it is such an honor, I'm thrilled to be on it and I thank all of you for your lovely comments of support and kindness--it means alot to me!  So thanky you to everyone!!  If you are a Fan Club Member at SCS (if not & you want to be see HERE) and have seen my gallery there, those cards are all for SALE (minus the blue shoe set) but I can not post them here or on Etsy--just email me and let me know if you'd like one.

*********************************
"Pretty In Pink" Blog Hop


Today the Magnolia-licious DT has a fabulous Blog Hop for you featuring projects that are all "Pretty In Pink"--perfect for upcoming Valentine's Day!!  I created a fun, frilly & super pink gift set--I had so much fun putting all of this together yesterday that it was almost a crime, hee hee!  My set features a card, a journal/notebook and a t-shirt using the fabulous Magnolia image "Tilda Throwing Hearts" (which is from Magnolia-licious)!  You can see all the Valentine inspired Magnolia stamps right HERE too!  At the end of this post you see who to hop over to next, but don't forget to stop by the "Magnolia-Licious HighLites Blog" HERE to get all the details on how you can join in on this with us!! But if you're starting with my blog, you might want to start at the beginning with my pal Kerry Donovan-Casey and her lovely creation!


On my trip to Jo-Ann's yesterday I picked up some of this yummy paper by DCWV--I love the fun pattern and pretty ice cream colors!  Tilda Throwing Hearts is colored with Copics (R85,R83,R81) and then I cut the image out with my circle nestabilities, leaving out the hearts that are in the air for a fun touch!  I created some paper lace (courtesy of Norma from My Craft Room--see her tutorial HERE) using a MS border punch and then wrapped it with ribbon & a bow!  The swirly corners are actually a Spellbinder's die "Fancy Tags" that I cut off the ends to use and added pearls & a Prima mini rose.  And of course there are lots of stickles and a lil' double heart charm to finish it off!


While I was at Jo-Ann's they had the cutest lil' journals in their $1 section so I picked up a couple of course (don't ask me how many journals I have in my closet waiting to be altered--it's a travesty I tell ya, LOL)  I covered up the center section leaving the fun polka-dots & swirls uncovered cuz' they're soooo cute!  I added some Prima flowers/roses and Hero Arts print flowers to the corner.  The "Me&My Big Ideas" is from PTI's "Take Note" set that I just love--then I used my "Fancy Tags" die again to mount the sentiment on.


This is my headless daughter!! LMBO!  She was having a bad hair day (according to her) so she didn't want me to show her head, hee hee!  I bought a bunch of these white t-shirts eons ago with the sole purpose of prettying them up and this is the 1st one I've used so far!  I bought some iron-on transfer sheets to stamp my image and then color it with Copics (tricky to color on these sheets--tip: colors come out darker and are hard to blend, one layer of copics only)--I had to re-do this image twice before I finally figured out how to color it properly.


I added some hearts and "Love" sentiment from a PTI set that I stamped in PTI's Palette Ink (berry sorbet) which is permanent & washable.  I also added some rhinestones with fabric glue and some glitter glue for lots of sparkle--I LOVE how it turned out, I think it's so cute!   I have sooo many t-shirt ideas now, hee hee--this whole set is for sale in my Etsy Shop HERE if you're interested (the shirt was washed & heat set & is ready to go)!

Now to continue on the Blog Hop today, next up is Diana Crick (fabulous owner of Magnolia-licious & my good friend) and you can visit her on the new Store Blog HERE!  Hope you're inspired to create some pink-a-licious fabulousness yourself now!

A Lockhart Valentine


My second pink-a-licious project for you today features a beautiful Lockhart stamp called "Heart Wreath"!  The beautiful paper is from K&Co's "Life's Journey"--my new favorite pack of papers, LOVE IT and I paired it cream, pink & kraft cs!  The image was colored with Copics and then I added a few stickles to the image.  I created some more paper lace (courtesy of Norma--link above) with a new MS border punch and backed it with pink cs to make it really pop--isn't it lovely!?  A pretty quick card to put together but so romantic & lovely me thinks!

Alrighty, glad you hung in there with me for this very long post, lol!  I'll see ya back here tomorrow!

  63. Hi Suzanne. What a wonderful card - and accessories (hope your daughter is happier with her hair today!). Your DP reminds me of neapolitan ice cream with maybe a dollop of caramel sauce on top, and fudge sauce too in the brown paper lace. All the elements work so well together to make a positively charming card - and the extra matching goodies. As I go from blog to blog, I can almost feel the excitement of the planning, getting ready to show us your wonderful cards. Bravo!
