May 31st is the last day to get Everything is Rosy bundle





Here is a comparison chart showing what it would cost if you bought everything separately compared to similar items in the catalog.


Are you still on the fence to get this set? 
Here is a few more ideas to help you decide.

Here I created a candle wrap, card, centerpiece and a gift box.

I used the sweet cup sleeve template to create the wrap for the box (I glued two pieces of dsp together since the wrap is longer than 6 inches) and then I die cut the leaves from the Rose Gold foil card stock and wrapped it around the bottom and glued them with liquid glue. I then took the Night of Navy/Rose Gold metallic edged ribbon and wrapped around the lid edge and glued it down with liquid glue. 

For the top of the lid I used the stitched circle die to cut a piece of Night of Navy card stock for the top. I then added a die cut image and popped it up with dimensionals and die cut some leaves from the Rose Gold Foil card stock.

I used the template I created for the candle to cut my dsp (I again glued two pieces of the dsp together since the wrap is longer than 6 inches). I added a Melon Mambo bow to the front to finish it and adhered it with liquid glue.



I created a simple card that can be used as a wedding, garden party invitation. My card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 from each end. Fold and now you have your gate fold. I cut 2 pieces of dsp 2 x 5 1/4 and used snail to adhere it. I then took a hole punch and punched a hole on each side. I then took about 12 inches of ribbon and thread it through and tied it into a bow for a closure.


For the inside I printed on my computer a sample wedding invitation and stamped the flower in Melon Mambo and the flower center and leaf in Night of Navy. This gives the invite a special touch. You could create a baby shower, garden party etc. invite with this medley.



For the centerpiece I took two pieces of dsp and slide them inside the blank mason jar (the jar has no images on it, got it from amazon.) I wrapped the Melon Mambo ribbon and the Night of Navy/Rose Gold ribbon together around the jar. I love how this turned out. You could do this with any dsp for any occasion or holiday for a simple inexpensive centerpiece. The flowers I got from Dollar General that are from David Tutera Collection.

Princess Diana and Everything is Rosy

When I got the Everything is Rosy, I knew I wanted to create a scrapbook page. I started with a 12 x 12 piece of Whisper White. I then took one sheet of each pattern of the 6 x 6 dsp. I then started layering them and adding some of the Rose Gold foil 6 x 6 dsp also to each side of the cardstock. I then cut a 4 1/4 x 6  cardstock of Night of Navy and Melon Mambo, and embossed it with the Country Floral Embossing folder. After I got it all together I knew what pictures I wanted to put on it. Princess Diana, she was an amazing woman who loved everyone and was not afraid to show it. My husband and I were married on August 30, 1997 and then to wake up the next day to hear the devastating news that she had been in a horrific accident! I was at a loss, the emotions that happened all at once are beyond words:(  


Here is my page, I hope you like it as much as I do. 



 Gone to soon! 



For the mason jar, all I did was took a piece of the 6 x 6 and slid it into the jar. It fit perfectly and added a David Tutera bouquet.

Garden Gnomes


Gnomes are known as symbols of good luck and were originally thought to provide protection, especially of buried treasure and minerals in the ground. They are still used today to watch over crops and livestock, often tucked into the rafters of a barn. You see them quite often in people’s front yards in flower beds, near a door. Many people are now building gardens for their gnomes. They have houses, bridges, and so much more for their gnomes to live comfortably:)

When the Sale-A-Bration came out with the Painted Seasons DSP, I immediately saw gnomes and I had to create my own garden of gnomes. I went to Dollar General and found all kinds of items for gnomes and got a few of them. I then went to Dollar Tree and found mini gnomes and items and I thought "what can I create with them?" I got a few and when I got home I started looking to see what I could create. I searched pinterest and found this card from Melissa Colledge and just had to recreate it.




I created mine a little differently, I fussy cut the hat from Poppy Parade cardstock, the beard is using the Hello Cupcake stamp, stamped in Smoky Slate, the nose is 3/4 inch punch using Petal Pink and popped up with a dimensional and same for the face I fussy cut also. My card base is Cajun Craze.








 I created this box following Erica Cerwin's video on her
 Pink Buckaroo site. I again used Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry CS. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink and used the "hi there!" from the Floweing Desert stamp set.


Here is Erica's box, she made a St. Patrick Leprechaun.


I added a gnome to a candle to display out in the garden for this summer.


I kept looking at the mini gnomes and wandering what to create to display them. Again I went to pinterest and found again on Erica's site these adorable Flowering Desert Sweet Cups with domes.


Here is one of the mini gnomes I made with the sweet cups. 


And here is a couple more. 
These would make great gifts for a garden party.
I used the template for the sweet cups to cover the cup and then cut a piece of dsp about 1/2 (I cut mine at the next mark after the 1/2 inch, it seems to fit better, but that is up to you)  x 11 or 12 if you want some overlap, of the same design but flipped it over to use the other side and wrapped it around the lid. I added a piece of a moss sheet that I cut out with a circle framelit and snailed it to the lid. I hot glued the gnomes and etc. I then hot glued the dome on top. These domes are 80mm ornaments that I got from Amazon and fit the domes perfectly. I will add the link image if you wish to order them from amazon. 

Here there are all together. These are ready for the garden or party!
