Little Girl Banner

Hello and welcome back.

This Wednesday I am showing you my banner.  It was completed just before the weekend.  I was very excited to be doing a banner, as I thought no one else had made one.  Then  to my surprise, Jeannie's creation came up.  All I can say is,  "Jeannie, great minds think alike" and I hope you like mine just as much as all the fantastic comments you gave Jeannie.
So here goes!

I started off with wooden off the page flowers from Kaiser and went about covering them with Sweet Nothings 6 1/2 paper pad also by Kaiser.  Starting with the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame, I cut the middle out and used that for the middle of each flower.  On top of the flower are bling alphabets with small wings just underneath.  The edges of the flowers are covered in pearls.  The flowers are made up of the Miniature Rose, the Cuties 2, the Darling Daisies and the Stacker Flower #1 Leaf.  Finishing off with ribbon and binding them all together used pink links.

Number One Fan!

Hello and welcome back.  Celeste here with you for another Wednesday.

Today I want to show you a card I made using the Eazi-Score, that Phyllis from Diamond Card Craft sent to the Design Team members a little while back.
I used the score board and instruction booklet to make this Bouncy Card.

I started off using purple card stock to make the card.  Next I used some patterned paper to put on the bottom of the card and in the square.  I cut out the Folding Fan from the same card stock as the main card and then used a shimmering purple to go over the fan itself.  One flower using the Large Rose and Cuties 2 dies was used at the bottom.  Lace Corner Deco A were used for the corners on the square of the card, while two of the other Lace Corner Deco A were used for the stand of the card.

To add some "greenery", the Olive Branches were popped in behind the flower.  On the stand of the card I used the Small Dragonfly with Angel Wing in one corner and the Darling Daisies in the other.  

Don't forget the challenge this week.  Head on over to the Cheery Lynn Designs blog for all the information and good luck!

Hi Cheery Lynn Adorers!  Celeste here with you for exciting news of the new releases of dies!!
The Reflections Boutique Mega Dies are just fabulous.  There are so many ways to use these dies you can't just stop at one!

In my post today I have used the Horizon Covered Rectangle Mega Doily as the border for my little girl. 
I have cut out two sizes of this doily and popped them on top of each other with ribbon and lace before adhering to the bigger doily.  This bigger doily is the Mini Pearl Covered Rectangle Mega Doily, and as you can see, I cut just one side of the largest doily to use as the background for my Mega Fanciful Flourish.  You heard it right folks!  A MEGA Fanciful Flourish.  Loving this one!!

Another of the new release dies is this Mini Flourish One, at the left of the above picture.  I can see this becoming another hot favourite!  And yes there is a mega die too!!

These Lace Corner Deco dies are sure be a big hit.  There are quite a few to choose from and the bonus is you get a set of three different dies in one pack.

These new release dies are:

Bless You!

Hi every one and welcome back.  Celeste here with you for another Cheery Lynn Designs Project.

For a long time I have wanted to dress up a Tissue Box.  I finally found one (from Kaiser) and got to work.  I hope you like it!

First I covered the whole box in neutral tones and then started with the borders.  For the borders up the top, I used the Lace Light Deco Border and for the bottom with ribbon threaded thru, I used the new release Country Girl.  Up on top I used the Queen Anne's Lace.

Next the foliage came along.  This was the Tropical Flourish and Olive Branches.  I cut these out and inked with Tim Holts inks.  

The flowers were made up of the Miniature Rose, Large Rose and Cuties 2.  These were put together and placed on the corner and two sides to look like a trail of vines and flowers.  The Exotic Small Butterflies were added to the two sides.

Mother and Daughter

Hello and welcome back.  It's Celeste here with you for another Cheery Lynn project!
Today I have a surprise for you.  My daughter Amberly created a card with my Cheery Lynn Design dies, and this is her creation!

She found the silhouette of one of my dies, the Fanciful Flourish.  She asked if she could use it and together we cropped and put it on white card stock.  I asked what she would like to do next, and she chose to use the Darling Daisies.  She even new what to do with them!  

Amberly then decided that she was going to put the rub-ons in the corner, and that it was good the way it was.  Don't you love the simplicity of children?  She is going to give it to her Nanna, who is in a nursing home.
Now onto my project.

To keep it in theme with Amberly's project, I decided to make a card too!
I saw this image on a free vintage stamp site and knew I wanted to use it.  It is not a traditional scene to use on a card, but I loved the colours and the style.

Using the new Swedish Spring Oval Frame, I cut it in half and put half on the front, and the other half on the bottom of the easel card.  Doing this also helps the card stay upright (or open).

The using the Cuties 2 and the Miniature Rose dies I cut the flowers and popped them on with the Olive Branches tucked just underneath.  I added the pin, using the same colour theme.

Dies used:
B147 Olive Branches
B150 Cuties 2
B152 Miniature Rose
FRM135 Swedish Spring Oval Frame
