Tilda As Butterfly

We are welcoming a beautiful, early spring at My Sheri Crafts. :-)  I always think of flowers and butterflies when I hear the word "spring".   I colored a Tilda image with Copic markers and used the Sweet Fairy line from Prima for my background paper.  I was thinking more in the line of a magical spring.  I added Stickles and crystals from Recollections and The Paper Studio for added sparkle.  The frames and butterfly were cut using Spellbinders dies and I inked the edges using ColorBox ink.  Come join us this week at My Sheri Crafts and we are looking foward to seeing your lovely work!

Happy Easter from My Sheri Crafts!

I am so excited to celebrate Easter this year.  It's a wonderful coincidence that it falls on my birthday weekend. :-D  For this week's design team project, I made a card using an image from Stampavie, framed using Spellbinders dies, and colored with Copic markers.  The designer paper is from Prima.  I made the flowers and leaves using Cheery Lynn dies.  The lace is from our DT sister Charlotte and the border punch is from Martha Stewart.
Come join the fun this week at My Sheri Crafts and Happy Easter to all of you!

An ABC Primer Bookmarks

The design team at My Sheri Crafts are one with the rest of the country in celebrating Read Across America.  I thought of making some bookmarks.  My challenge was to make something that does not stick out so as not to damage the book's pages.  To address those issues, I decided to layer some coordinating retro-style patterned papers from DCWV, then I added Stickles, plaid washi tape, fabric tape, and Liquid Pearls from Ranger to add interest.  I made tabs using a punch from McGill to make handling the bookmarks easier.  The main images are from Graphic 45's An ABC primer paper pack. I am saving the whole set for Kenzo Gunner's teacher's gift when he starts kindergarten...four years from now. lol!
