I {Heart} Flowers


(The stamp pad is there so you can tell the size of the flowers (relatively).)

Hi Everyone!

I love paper flowers! I think I am addicted to them, hehe ;p'.

{Here's just some info for you gals who asked about the flowers on my projects.}

I bought these paper roses (one is on my key tag) like 6-7 years (or more?) ago from this local scrapbooking store! I bought a lot of the "hibiscus" shape flowers and different leaves within the past year from them too. They have an online store...so check them out!

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

Vintage Butterfly Tag 2


Hi Everyone!
Okay, I LOVE embossing! Love trying out all the different types of embossing powders. So much fun!~ Here's another tag I made...I used a gold stamp pad with the Super Fine Detail Clear embossing powder. I forgot to mention I used my Shimmers on the last tag and on this one. I also used a ton of Stickles on both tags.
Hope you are inspired to create :).
