It's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for my turn this month. Thank You Sheila for having me and for all you do. Gee, it's been so crazy lately that I haven't even had time for me, but I hope that will change soon :) It is so important to make time for ourselves. Anyway, where Mother's Day is coming soon, (May 13th) I figured I would get a head start on a few things. I decided, since my Mom loves to read, I would make her this cute bookmark. I cut out two rectangles from a regular file folder and adhered them together with my Xyron. I used Tim Holtz distress inks to add some color, then I used a flower stamp and stamped it randomly with Versamark. I sprinkled clear embossing powder on the images and used my heat gun. I sprayed the whole thing with blue glimmer mist to bring out the flowers, then dotted blue stickles in the center of each flower. I punched a hole in the top, added a grommet and then tied some ribbon.
Next is the card. I just cut a regular A2 size card, tied a ribbon around it, used the extra large die from My Creative Time. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Mom You Rock, also from My Creative time. I also stamped a couple of flowers and a dragonfly from a stamp set that I got as a gift, I don't know the name of it. I added stickles to the flowers and the dragonfly. The cute rolled flower I had purchased quite a while ago from Christina of Creating with Christina. I think she had a die that cut them out and you rolled them up. Emma from My Creative Time just came out with a rolled flower die if you didn't already know that ;) I sprayed the flower with blue glimmer mist and added a pearl in the center. I added some stitching around the edge of the card.
Last is the box. I cut out one of the boxes from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More with fit to page. I put it together and added a ribbon. I added a larger flower to the top and added a pearl in the center. I will probably fill the box with chocolates ;)
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. Thank you again Sheila for having me. I hope to see you again soon. I have a couple of things I am working on for a birthday so I'll be posting them soon. :)
