Huge Riley Sale!

 Hello, just a reminder, Riley and Company has a HUGE sale going on right now, 50% off everything in the store, just enter SUMMER50 in the coupon code! But hurry, this sale ends September 31! Great time to stock up!

This is a card I made a while back using Flower Bonnet Sophie. My Niece just had her ears pierced, so for her 6th Birthday we bought her some earrings and a Gift Certificate to Claires (accessory store) so I made a little jewelry box to go with the card!
 Here's the top, made to look like the flowers on the card.
For the feet, I glued together to beads, all from the $ store! The drawers were made with the matchbox die, and the top and bottom are made with the mega nestabilites curved rectangles.

Have a Great Day!

FMS54, Halloween!

Hello, I made this using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch FMS54, and for the Kards for Kids Halloween drive!

The sketch made this pretty easy, and I finally got to play with some punches! The bat is made with the Owl punch, and for his wings I used the medium oval punch and a circle punch to curve the end. I sponged the edges with with craft ink. His mouth was drawn with a white Sharpie poster-paint pen. The branches were made from the 2-step bird punch.

Have a Great Day!

RILEY1912, Scraplings!

 Hello, it's challenge time at Riley and Company! Frances is our Hostess this week, and she's challenge us to make a Scrapling! If your new these, Frances has a great description here!

For my scrapling, the base piece is 2.25" wide. I used the new Cinderella Sophie, she's so pretty and look at those awesome glass slippers! I coloured Sophie with copics. For her shoes, I covered them with crystal effects then sprinkled on some glittler.

The white layer is shimmery white, but it probably doesn;t show in the picture. The butterflies were made using the MS punch and some glitter paper.
For the inside, I used a sentiment from the Life Is A Fairy Tale word set. You can also buy this sentiment separately here!
