Love of Embellishments......

Ready for some exciting news???? Well first, let me share some cards I made some time ago.

This first one was quicker than quick! A bit of the fabulous Honey Pie dp with some Honey Pie rub-ons! Let me tell you, if you haven't tried Cosmo Cricket rub-ons you are missing out. They are so easy to use and are much "thicker" than most on the market! Oh, don't forget that yummy chocolate chip ribbon! :-)
Recipe:
Paper: ruby red, honey pie dp (Cosmo Cricket)
Accessories: chocolate chip ribbon, honey pie rub-ons (cosmo cricket)

This is a fun baby boy card. I love the colors......
Recipe:
Paper: certainly celery, bashful blue, real red, whisper white, bambino dp (Daisy D's)
Accessories: star punch, slit punch, 3/4" circle punch, real red ribbon, bambino metal brads (Daisy D's)

How can you not smile at this guy??
Recipe:
Paper: brocade blue, creamy caramel, summer sun
Accessories: certainly celery ribbon, scallop punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, baby boy smile die cuts (Daisy D's)

This card just came together so nicely. It was one of my first sewing projects, although you can hardly see the stitches in the picture (they separate the 3 different layers of dp.)
Recipe:
Stamps: Le Jardin (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Paper: close to cocoa, sweet branch collection kit dp (Crate Paper)
Ink: brilliance
Accessories: copics, copper brad (American Crafts), sewing machine

So all the items in RED were bought at Jacksonbelle Embellishments, a fabulous online store with great products that you just can't find in my little town.

So now you have to go here
to find out about my little announcement........
