I've Been Thinking


I've been thinking to play a few challenges, however one thing lead to another, it was only a thought.  But I realized it today.  The layout comes from CAS(E) this Sketch, the color scheme from Altenew.

The flowering branch is gold heat embossed and then watercolored.  Then I scored the horizontal lines, then stamped the sentiment.  Lastly I added some shimmering speckles using Twinkling H2O watercolors.

Tea Cup Planner charm

Hi craft friends,

How are you doing?  Are you a planner person?  I wasn't until my friend got me to go to a Planner class with her at the LSS.  We got a Carpe Diem A5 Planner and every month we get together to decorate it at our LSS.  A couple months ago I lost the original planner charm that came with the planner!  Boohoo!!  :(

I was inspired after seeing this FB post about customizing the Carpe Diem Planner Charm, and I made a replacement planner charm.

Let's take a look.

I use my Hero Arts Nested Frame Cuts Infinity Dies Tea Cup to die cut my tea cup from gold card stock.  I die cut two pieces from gold card stock and one extra piece from water color paper to add thickness.  I embossed the motif, punch the hold for the chain and glue them together.  Isn't it cute?!

I used the smallest die from the Tea Cup dies set for the charm.  The set has 7 dies, and the largest one measures 6 by 3 1/4 inches, great for a shaped card!  :)  And it is still available on a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Etsy store, and I have a shopping code for you.  Enter Cindy15 to get 15% off any purchases $25 or more (excluding shipping fee).  Happy shopping!

Thanks for stopping by, I wish you a lovely day!!
