Sparkle N Sprinkle Fancy Fold Blog Hop

Welcome!! I am so glad that you are joining us for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Amazing Folds Blog Hop!

Thank for for stopping by! If you have come by way of visiting Shanna Shands then you are in the right place! If you have not seen the beginning, please start with Sparkle N Sprinkle website.

Afterwards, please don't forgot to stop by to see what the super-talented Donna Ellis has created to inspire you! I promise that IT IS jaw-dropping!!

This is a very fun hop and I really enjoyed creating my project. What I loved about this hop was that it reveals a "theme" rather than just an "image category". There is so much possibilities...
And here is what I wanted to share with you:

This fold is a fun design for utilizing all those extra pieces of scrap paper that is left-over from previous projects. You can combine various pieces and still be able to make a dazzling project.
This is the front of my card. There are three sides to this fold.  The next picture will show you from the top angle. (It also stands on its own.)

This is the middle side. I used the butterfly from the Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Nature.
I also loved the quotes from the Nature set. I had embossed the words in pearl embossing powder and then sponged green over it to bring out the pearl embossings.
This is the back side of the card. As you can see, The butterfly is very sparkly. It is embossed in white detail embossing powder and then watercolored. Raspberry soda glitter as applied to the wings, as well as sparkling snow glitter. It is sooooo sparkly in real life.

The card was able to stand on its own and would make a great centerpiece for special occassions. You can see the inside portion as well here.
 You can easily fold it flat when you are ready to put it away. Here is my daughter modeling it for you.
As you can see it folds flat. (The flowers are handmade using Spellbinder's dies.)

My little one wanting to pose with the card. (She just had chocolate milk....chocolate milk mustache.)
Here it is all flattened out. When you flip it over, you can write a note and send it out as a card to someone special.
It was a really fun project to make.

 Here is more detail about the prizes.

Room in My heart


I just love this sweet sentiment from a Sparkle N Sprinkle set called Hummingbirds and Flowers.

I created this scrapbook pge for my daughter. She loves the Disney Princesses. Her favorite was Cinderella, now it is Ariel.

Belle looks really pretty here. I had her dress all glittered up with sparkles.

Can you see all the sparkles? Wished I can wear poofy-sparkly dresses like that.
And of course, I had to throw in a few hand-made flowers. The samped flower is a digi from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Magnolia. When I first saw it, I knew that I wanted to create flower borders with it when I scrapbook. It did not come out as I had envisioned....

Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear what you love to create!

Have a nice day!

Song Inspiration

Can you see the sparkles? Sparkling Snow glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The dandelion flowers/stems were hande made and the center is covered in glitter.

I am entering this into the Saturated Canary Challege. The theme for the challenge was for song inspiration. This card was inspired by the Fergie song called "Big Girls Don't Cry."

This princess looks like she is waiting...for what? Sounds like a good story to be told ahead. A fairy tale, perhaps?

Have a nice day. :)

Ready to Party in my pink dress

What a way to start out the New Year but with a pretty party dress! This is a Sparkle N Sprinkle digi called "put on your party dress". I loved coloring this digi.

The image has been propped up on 3-D foam....and full of glitters! A girl can not start off the New Year corrctly without a glittered flowered dress.

The button, daisies, and roses are handmade by me. It looks like a real button but feels lighter than a feather.
