Punk-a-licious mini album

Hi everyone!  I Have a fun mini album to share with you today using the Punk-a-licious mini album by Punky Sprouts.  
I made this mini album to document my daughter's senior year of high school- I can't believe that she is a Senior this year!  Where did the time go!!

Here is a close-up of  an embellishment that I made using Epiphany Crafts products.  They are our swap partner this month and have a variety of awesome products!  You can make all sorts of embellishments for your paper crafting or even jewelry making! 

I love Punky's Lil' Blossoms Lacy (aka doilies).  These are hands down the prettiest doilies on the market!

The center of this flower was made with the Epiphany Crafts punch Round 25- love this punch.

Lace Flower Tutorial

Hi everyone.  I have a tutorial to share with you on how to make quick, easy crocheted lace flowers.

I used the beautiful trims that Ruby Rock-It has to offer to make this flower.  Here is what you need:
a 6" and a 10" piece of trim
a needle with thread or embroidery floss
a 1 1/2" circle of paper
liquid glue ( Beacon's 3in1 or Fabric Tac are excellent)
Bella! Heart Stickers

Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!  I have a  layout to share that I created based on Cindy Stevens awesome Sketch.  I'm using the beautiful new paper range from Bella! called My Romance.  Even though this paper is geared towards wedding, it is so versatile that you could use it for just about anything!
Here is my layout.

I made this beautiful flower using the Arcadia Trimmings lace.  I have a tutorial coming up soon and I will show you how easy it is to recreate this flower.
I used my sewing macgine to add some interest to the lower half of my layout.  I think stitching is just such a pretty accent- don't you?
I used the Bella! Bling to create this circle bling.  Even though it comes in a straight line, it's flexible enough to shape.  You just have to love that!
Supplies used:
We would love for you to participate in this month's Sketch Challenge as well!  
Thanks for stopping by and Happy scrapping!!
