Hi All, I have exciting news I want to share but before I do I want to apologize for not being on since Mother's Day. I had so many orders to complete and I got busy. But after that, I honestly, just didn't make time to blog. I have been busy though, crafting and starting up a business. Yes, you heard right! A business. I have always made things for family, friends and myself. Other people have seen my work and have asked me to make things for them. I've always dreamed of having my own business and what a better combination than to have a business of my own doing what I love?? I couldn't be more excited!! I will be selling my handmade goods on Etsy. I choose the name Little Frills Boutique. I will have a variety of items in the shop as any boutique would. I will have jewelry, hair accessories, charms for scrapbooking or whatever you want to do with them, cute aprons, little girl clothes, baby girft such as blankets, burp cloths and bibs, and maybe some home decor. I've been busy setting things up and some of the stuff I've designed are business props. Here's a banner I designed...

Mother's day rose bouquet

Ok I orginally posted this first before the other bouquets but only the pic came out, not what I wrote so I'm posting it again. That is why its out of order as you can see, this rose bouquet post, then the  plaque and then the orders I got for the rose bouquets. Oops. Lol. I tried to edit the original posting but no luck.
Anyhow, this is the first bouquet I made using an Ellinee template for the roses. These are all hand cut, inked and put together. Can you say "handmade" lol. No cricut or dies used here. I added a butterfly and put them in my own personal pink bucket for the time being. I will change it out to a different bucket later. I just love love the way they came out. I will be tweaking them a tad and adding ribbon, more butterflies and a tag that says happy mothers day all in a silver bucket. Ok I think I got it right this time. Ha ha. Have a great day!

Mother's Day Plaque

Hi again. I'm posting this Mother's day plaque I made. I didn't just want to have flowers to give to moms but also a keepsake with endearing words that she could cherish. So this is what I came up with.
It's a 7x9 white canvas that I inked/aged with Tim Holtz distress inks and stamped the flourishes. I made the cabbage roses using my Donna Salazar rose dies, inked them and added added pearl centers. I also used my McGill star flower punches for the star flower. I printed out the saying and adhered it to patterned paper, inked it and adhered it to the canvas. It also has a cord that I attached to the back so you can hang it. I think its the perfect size, not too big, not too small. If you didn't want to hang it, you could buy an easel for it to sit on and place it a top of a counter, end table, desk, mantle or where ever. Well I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did. Thanks for visiting. Til next time...

Mother's Day bouquets

Hello there, here are some of the bouquets I made for orders that I got. I made 2 of a mixed color bouquet, an all yellow with a red center and an all pink one. I have another order for an all purple bouquet that I'm working on and will post pics soon. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for visiting.
