Prima Doop Trim!

Hi Everyone! Sorry it's been over a month since my last post, but I have a great thing to show you today! I came up with my own Prima style trim using fabrics from Joannes and these really pretty Faux bling  from the TwinsMoms Etsy shop. I think if you are looking for something that looks very realistic this is the stuff! :) Here is what the finished trim looks like...

I think it turned out great. One tip that I would mention would be to use a lighter to stop the fraying of the fabric, plus it looks a lot more polished not to have have strings everywhere. :)

Here is a close-up of the Faux bling that I was talking about. I think this part really finishes it off and makes it look more like the Prima trim that I was trying to re-create! If you want to know how to make this trim, then just follow the steps in the video below. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! :)

Name Sign Display

Hi All! I recently posted a video about my name sign display, but I didn't show the up close pics of each product. I think you'll really like what all of these look like if you use these yourself. For the name sign I just put the info into a Microsoft Word document and typed it out then printed it in printer paper. I adhered  it down to a floral motif pattern of paper then I decorated! Here is what the finished name display looks like...

Here are a couple pics of the layered trims. I tend to do this using the Ruffled Lace Trim and the Tier Drop Pearl Trim. They fit perfectly together, plus they look awesome!

And the last picture, is the pink butterfly, isn't is gorgeous?! I love all that glitter and gemstones and sparkles...any little girl would love this! :)

Thanks for looking and have a great Labor Day weekend! :)

P.S.-- If you haven't already, check out the video I made for this project:

Hand Dyed Trims

Hi All! Sorry I have been so MIA lately! I just started school a couple weeks ago and it's all been busy from the start. Anyways, I wanted to show you all my hand dyed trims I made using some white trim from the TwinsMoms Etsy shop! I love this stuff! On it's own it's gorgeous but once I dyed it I loved it even more!! :) Here is the first color that I did. I used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

 Here's another shot of the trim, isn't it lovely?? :)

Here's the second one, I used a different brand of ink, this one was by Stampin' Up in the color Old Olive. I especially love this for Christmas projects or even Halloween!

And here are the two colors together, I actually really like this color combo for a project, do you?

Hope you liked the colors and inspiration. Make sure you watch this tutorial for a better description in how to achieve this! Thanks for stopping by! :)

TM Just Saying Hello Card

I'm back to share with you a TwinsMoms DT project! This week I made a 5"x5" card. As I mentioned in my YouTube video, this is so different for me because I am so use to doing the usual A2 size card, but I really loved how the card turned out!! :) The card has a lot of pink, but it's kinda subtle because I used trims and pearls to "tone" down the card. Here is what the finished card looks like...

I absolutely love it!!!

And here's the close-up of the flowers, I am droooling over how pretty that white/pink flower is! It's called White and Pink Mulberry Curly Flower. And that scallop trim underneath is called Scallop Tier Drop Pearl Trim, don't you just love this for shabby chic projects, it's perfect! The brown roses, which are one of my fav's in TwinsMoms shop is called the Brown Vintage Mulberry Flower.

Hope you enjoyed my card and as always have a great day!! :)

TM Altered Paint Can

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share a project I made for the TwinsMoms Design Team! I love how it turned out and everything was fairly inexpensive. I started off by picking up an unused paint can from Home Depot, this cost about $2 I think. I then decorated it for a very chic looking piggy bank LOL! I actually really like it though! :) Here are some of the pictures I took...

I used a vintage looking button as a flower center for the Recollections flowers that I layered together. Around the rim I added the sequin trim which is available in TwinsMoms etsy.

 These are the gorgeous pink ruffled lace and the black flat back pearls layered on top of each other, I did this on both the top and bottom on the can.

The altered paint can turned out so delicate and pretty and I just love the outcome. These products will be available at the TwinsMoms Etsy shop, so go on and take a look! Thanks for coming by my blog today! :) 

P.S- Don't forget to watch the video for an even better description...

TM 6x6 Layout

Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to share this really adorable 6x6 layout I made using a picture of our family dog, named Benny! :) I love how this turned out and how it's sort of beachy, masculine, and grungy all together! It turned out to be a great combination though. For the project I used a couple of items from the TwinsMoms etsy shop! I used some of the white flowers, brown mini roses, and the white pearl spray. I also added a burlap trim underneath the photo. Here are the pictures of how it turned out, I love it!

Here is a side view...isn't that burlap trim gorgeous?!?

And the flowers of course...I'm in love with this flower combo!!

Thanks everyone for looking and make sure you check out my video to see the tutorial of how I created this layout! :)

Baby Card

Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to do a quick share of a baby card I made last night. I think it turned out so cute and it perfect for any baby gender, especially if you or the parents don't know yet. In my case, they were having twins, and it was a girl and a boy! :) So for the card I used papers from a Making Memories die cut stack. The paper collection was called Garden Party. I also incorporated a banner using the same papers and letter stickers by Basic Grey. I can't remember what company made the pearl stickers, but I added these to the banner and in each point of the top note shape. Here is what the finished card looks like...

 And a close-up...

Thanks for looking and have a great day! :)
