~* Shabby Chic Card using Sushi Dolls "Curly S 3" digi *~

Aloha!
Sharing another Design Team project for Sushi Dolls Design Team.  I made another shabby chic card using the adorable "Curly S 3" digi image.  I colored her up with my Copic markers and added Crystal Stickles to her stockings.
I used the gorgeous DCWV The Primrose Stack from my friend Vicki.  I distressed the edges and layered them on a corrugated cardboard card from my friend Joanne.  I added Crystal Stickles to the butterfly and flower images.  There is a bunch of yummies from The Piece By Piece (crystal sprays, lace that I cut and placed as borders, rosette trims, applique lace, silk ribbon that I tied into a bow, pink scalloped trim, and pink daisy trim) and MB's Treasurista (rosebuds, sweetheart flowers, and baby roses).  I also added some goodies from my stash, a tulle flower with pearl spray center, pearl with rhinestones, pearl stamens, and a couple of pearl accents.

~* Owl/Kawaii-Themed Purple Domino Pocket Filofax "Cover Sheet" using Sushi Dolls "Sushi Owl Mug" digi *~

Aloha!
Here's something that I made for my Sushi Dolls Design Team Project.  It's the "cover sheet" for a Filofax that I decorated for my sis.  She wanted an owl/kawaii themed Filo.  Hope she likes it :).  I used the adorable Sushi Dolls "Sushi Owl Mug" digi on the cover sheet which I made from heavy weight cardstock covered with K&Company Watercolor Bouquet Specialty Paper.  I also added some Target paper tape and then punched holes with my Cropodile.  Isn't she adorable?
I colored her up with my Copic markers, fussy-cut her out, and added Stickles to her owl mug and puffy house slippers.  Too cute!  I added some woodgrain Thickers and some Prima flowers which I added pearls to the centers.

~* Tsunami Rose Designs D.T. Project: ATC using TRD's Monochrome Printable Journal Kit *~

Aloha!
Sharing an ATC that I created using the Tsunami Rose Designs "Monochrome" Printable Journal Kit in Black and White and Pink and White.
The base is a piece from the Black and White printables.  I cut it down to ATC size, which is 2-1/2" by 3-1/2".  I edged it with Distress Ink in Black Soot.  I used an Artisan Chipboard butterfly from Pink Paislee.  I glimmer misted it with Cadillac Pink.  I added the pearl flower trim as the body.  I fussy-cut the small butterfly from the Pink and Black Monochrome Ephemera sheet.  I added a piece of the pearl flower trim as the body.  
I added Crystal Stickles to the edges of the large and small butterfly and on the entire silhouette of the medium-size butterfly.  I added a paper rose as the body.  I added some other paper flowers in the bottom corner.  I also added some pink satin gathered trim at the bottom and a row of bling.  I tied a bow with the white pearl flower trim and added a paper rose at the center of the bow.
Here's my video of my project:
