Handmade paper flowers

Here are some paper flowers that I have been making for my shop. They are made with card stock papers and book pages. I did use hot glue to glue them together. I curled each flower punch to put them together. There are anywhere from 9-12 layers on each one. I used a 1" flower punch to create these 3D flowers.

These will be up for sale soon in my etsy shop.

ATC Challenge: Summer Fun #2

Here is my 2nd ATC card. Theme was to use NO CARD STOCK (no card stock papers from paper pads or individual sheets).

I colored a book page from a previous project using ink pads. Used 2 Tim Holtz colors which I cannot remember the names of and 2 others by studio G. I stamped an image on the clear acrylic piece and painted the image. I used glossy accents to adhere the clear packaging piece to the book page after the stamped image and paint dried. then using stickles I made it look like there were fire works. I also glittered her shirt and bow on her hat.

Materials used:

Clear Packaging
Chipboard backing
Book page
Inks from ink pad
Glossy Accents
Acrylic Paint
Puff paints (I think not sure theres no label  on them)

ATC Challege: Summer Fun

I used chipboard as the backing piece. took one of the Harry Potter book pages I cut out from a previous project. Stamped the teddy bear with his balloons and then stamped the banner. used acrylic paints, chalks, chalk ink, white gel pen, stickles, colored pencils. layered the grass over the stamp to look like hes in the grass chilling.
I did this because for me summer fun is just hanging out and having laughs. Plus my sons birthday is July 4th.

Altered Book

Hello everyone!

I just finished an altered book. It took me about 3-4 days to complete. It had  to be cut, glue dried, paint dried, and once that was all done  put together was the easy part. I knew I wanted it to be purple themed. I knew I wanted to use a digital image from she has some pretty cute stamps. This was a first for me. I loved how it came out. I used my exacto knife to cut each layer of book pages out. This book was pretty damaged when I got it. Pages were falling out all over the place. There were missing pages. So this was big enough to create what I wanted to create.

Materials used

Digi image
Broken Harry Potter Deathly Hallows book (hard cover)
Acrylic paints
Fabric flowers
Paper flowers/Recollections flowers
Resin flowers
Ribbon flowers
Paper Rolled roses
Elastic headband for closure
3 different kinds of laces
Shabby flowers
Bead/trim picks
Glass pearl
Sealing spray to hold purple paint
Hot glue
Martha Stewart colored pencils
Card stock
Ribbon buckles

I hope that you try something new. Create something that you haven't created or have been wanting to try.  This will be up in my shop soon!

Dollie or Sock Monkey Tutu

I created a cute tutu to either go on an 18" doll or one of my sock monkeys. I do not have a photo of one of my monkeys wearing it currently but you can check out my fan/shop Facebook page and see the monkeys wearing their tutus. This tutu in particular has 3 shares of tulle in hot pink, light pink, and white. There is a large tulle bow in the back of the skirt. I can also be used in the front or side if you wish. I just put the bow in the back.


new cards using digis by Cynthialoowho

Here are a couple of cards that I created using images from  .

Used my Martha Stewart Colored pencils to color each digital image. I then used my pastel chalks to  color the background and inside edges of the first card. Added sentiments and bling. Used stickles to add shine to each image. 

I loved coloring these. The first one that is a birthday card reminded me of Elsa from Frozen and almost made her that way. I may do that on a another card or project.

Please visit  and check out her digis and other items she has in her shop. I am having so much fun coloring these right now!

CherubLooWho Altered Box

Here is a box that I altered. I took a paper mache box that I've been hoarding/not know what to do with it.  I finally used it. I took some white linen acrylic paint and some kind of blue acrylic paint (dont remember color) and mixed it for a lighter blue color. I let it dry over night. I found some pretty card stock papers at a yard sale my neighbor was having. There wasn't much in the stack but there were some pretty ones. I love how it turned out before all the flowers and the digi image onto it. i shall make another one if I can find more pretty papers like this one!!

Materials used

Card stock
paper flowers
handmade paper flowers
shabby flower
recollections flowers.
drawer pull
gesso white acrylic paint
