I've been so excited about this collection as I know you are going to fall in love with it, just as I have.  We all have been huge fans of Downton Abbey and all the elegance that it you can bring that same elegance into your crafting with the Downton Abbey Papercrafting Collection.  These items will be debuting exclusively on HSN next Tuesday and you are not going to want to miss it.  Let me just say, be prepared to want it all.  It's a fabulous collection. 

Need a Tip?  Be sure to ink the edges of all your dies cuts and paper pieces...this will really make them stand out when you are layering multiple layers.

The Sparkle is POPPING out with Crafter's Companion

If you didn't know, Poppies are my favorite flower.  They are just stunning with their red and pop of black....What a beautiful creation of God.  This stamp set is one that lends itself to being a poppy or any other flower depending on how you color it...great versatility. 
I cut along the stamped line and curled my petals up just a bit to add some dimension.  Of course I had to add it to the card with some foam tape, because foam tape makes everything better, LOL. 
Be sure to head over to Crafter's Companion and check out all the latest and greatest stamp sets.

What time is it??? Children's Hour

I'm in love with the newest collection from Graphic 45, Children's Hour.  It's such a sweet calendar collection that can be used for so many different projects other than a calendar.  Look at this adorable vintage card I created with multiple layers, handmade flowers and a little chipboard. 

I know that Arlene created a beautiful layout using the Children's Hour so be sure to stop by Graphic 45's blog and take a peek.
