Hello, sweet friends! I am grateful for you. ♥️

Today I am sharing a wee bit of inspiration on the Live & Love Crafts blog. To celebrate a special occasion, I used lovely papers from Maja Design's Vintage Romance and a gorgeous Wycinanka chippie.
Wycinanka's Large Clock is painted with white acrylic paint, centered with a stunning Button Etoile, and adorned with a sprinkling of pearls. My sentiment is from Maja's Vintage Autumn Basics, which pairs perfectly with the focal point and the memories to be celebrated and made.
Nestled within the floral arrangement are two beautiful vintage pins: Capped Teardrops and Maya Road Heart Pins. The sweet Love Heart Clip is also from Maya Road, from which dangles a pretty Leaves Chain charm.
Several trims from Sandy's inspiring collection add layers of softness and elegance. One of my favorite parts of the design process is choosing the trims... they make my heart flutter. ♥️

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a beautiful weekend. :)

Graciellie Design Fall Fest Blog Hop

Hello, sweet friends! I'm fluttering in today in celebration of Graciellie Design's Fall Fest Blog Hop, where we are creating with lovely goodies from Gracie's digital stamp shop. ♥︎

Today is Day 2! This month Gracie is celebrating with giveaways, sales, and inspiration! Each day you will have the opportunity to win a Graciellie Design digital stamp set of your choice. We have prepared beautiful projects for your inspiration, so hop along and join in the fun. If you haven't joined the blog hop for Day 1, be sure to visit Graciellie Design's blog and start there.
Today I am showcasing the Sent with a Prayer stamp set to deliver love and hope to a family in need. Although my papers don't shout Fall, my card is created to build up a harvest of blessings for the recipient.
The sentiments are bursting with sweet encouragement and the foliage is beautiful. ♥︎
My sentiment is showcased by Wycinanka's Decor chipboard frame, which is sprinkled with pearls and nestled within Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Wycinanka's Background Hearts are tucked in for extra touches of love.
My card base is created with Spellbinders Gold Labels Four to create a sweet set with my card from yesterday. The papers are from Pion Design's Fairytale of Spring, a sheet I have saved for a few years for just the right occasion. I hope it shines light into their dark days. ♥︎

Lavender Love ♥︎

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you're having a blessed weekend. ♥︎ I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing an anniversary card celebrating sweet love.

Despite my best efforts not to, I have once again used Pion Design's Scent of Lavender collection. I seem to have an attachment to it. ♥︎ I experimented with many others, but these papers felt right for the design.
The lovey-dovey birdies are Wycinanka's Dove Border, which I have nestled within beautifully wispy Ruffle Trim. ♥︎ The trim is lined with Flatback Pearl String. My card base is made with Spellbinders Gold Labels Four dies. The popped up frame was made by cutting a Labels Four die within the Gold Labels.
For detailing on top, I used one of Wycinanka's gorgeous Bohemian Borders. ♥︎ Purple roses and lilies are tucked in amongst my neutral flower arrangements for sweet pops of color.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful weekend. ♥︎
