Christmas Highlight Part 4

Thanks to all of you that visited each of these four days. I enjoyed posting some of my holiday joys with you. Today is the last day and I will be sharing some scrapbook layouts I did over the last few days and weeks. Each  page includes some hidden journaling and that was fun thinking of where to put them.

Here goes!

Made the bow out of that beautiful glitter paper.

I added the tissue paper to make this look like a gift bag.

These glitter letters actually came off a gift bag and it was fun using it on a page.

Love making more of these tulle flowers.

A friend made a pocket layout for her holiday cards and I wanted to try it too. Great way to save those precious cards from family and friends.

Hope you enjoyed these layouts and my holiday highlights. Have a marvelous day!

Christmas Highlight Part 3

Happy Wednesday and I hope the new year has been good to you all so far. Today's post will feature a mini album card and an envelope card. I made the mini album for my in-laws and the envelope card for my sweet husband.

Take a look!

I love making this happy flower from tulle. The pp is from MME.

Each right side of the card has a pocket for notes and goodies.

Now here is the card I made with three envelops. I painted it and it turned out fun. Ron loved it and enjoyed finding things in the pockets of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and tomorrow I will have more to share. Take care!

Home Deco Art

Over the last several months I have been adding some things to redecorate our apartment. It is nice now but just didn't feel like me, ya know? So I am making window valances and made some art. My new colors are sky blues, lemon yellows and pinks. I just love pink! LOL!

In this post I will share some of the art I made on these large canvases. Take a look!

I made a messy and fun background. Then painted blue to shape the vase.

Love how bright and happy it turned out.

I mostly used my fingers to make the flowers.

This was so fun! I used tape to make the lines. Painted yellow over it and them pulled the tape off.

Used my fingers again to make the flowers along with a brush.

Used that tape again and my fingers for the flowers. I originally had one painting but didn't like. So I painted over it and created this.
Hope you enjoyed my art. It  makes me happy and can't wait to get all this redeco done after the holidays. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Wreath part 3

Today's post is featuring my last Christmas wreath. This one was for my in-laws.  I just loved how it turned out and it was a joy delivering it to them. My mother-in-law said before I came she was expecting a green traditional wreath. So when I came in with this red and white, big and fluffy wreath she was happily surprised. They loved it and I hope it brings lots of Christmas joy to their home.

Take a look!

Yes, that's me and this baby is big. Maybe as large as a car tire.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my wreaths. I hope you enjoyed and if you are interested give it a try. Pretty easy and lots of fun. Take care!

Christmas Wreath part 2

Hello everyone! In my last post, I shared the wreaths I made for my home. After taking that class at Michael's I got introduced to decorative mesh ribbon. I got hooked on that stuff and had to make more wreaths. LOL!

While I was in the class, I saw one that the teacher made. It was a beautiful, big and light weight wreath. This was a popular style and others were going to make it too. I just loved them and had to make that for my mom and mother-in-law.

I went to Pinterest and YouTube to get some ideas and more instruction and that really helped. This was such an easy project and the mesh is so resilient too.

So last Saturday was delivery day. The moms were all excited and we were thrilled to give them such a wonderful gift.

Today's post is about the one I made for my mom. Here's how I did it and how it turned out.

I started with this wire wreath that came with chenille ties already attached. I got mine at Michael's and the had a few different sizes and colors.

Next, I used two sizes of mesh ribbon.

Then I gathered and tied the mesh around the circle- top then bottom layers.

Added some Christmas tree ornaments and that was it.

So you can imagine it was a "love fest" when my mom got her wreath. LOL! She absolutely loved it and hadn't seen anything like this before. It was a joy making this gift knowing it would bring such joy. Awwwww, now I know how Santa Clause feels. LOL!

Next time I will share my other wreath. So hope you visit again!
