Tsunami Rose Designs - Star Calender

Happy Monday everyone!
It is very hot here in Southwestern Ontario 
but I love it.
I had my second knee replacement three weeks ago
today and it went very well.
It has kept me from scrapbooking a little but I 
am starting to get back into it.
Today I am posting for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I have made for you a star calender.
It is a very cool idea. I am going to take the
idea a little farther in a few weeks and 
finish making this star calender into a mini album
when you done with the calender.
I will make a video when I am done but for 
now here is the star calender.
I knew as soon as I saw these calender pieces I knew
I was going to make this star calender.

                    Digital Journal Card - Big Elements #1 Calendar #5 

There is a few different ones so you can mix and match.

There is a lot of pictures.

Here is my star calender from the top.
I used cheesecloth and wooden pieces and
lots of little pearls for dimension.

I put the calender pieces on the bottom so you 
can put pictures or journalling on the top.

On some of the pages I layered the flowers and inked
them so they would stand out.

I used yellow to accent all the colours this time to 
show how versatile Daisy's designs are..
I also embossed every page.

Aren't the flowers just gorgeous!!!

You can't really see from here but I made a pocket 
out of every page in the calender.
In the future I will do a video of the mini album
I am making with this star calender.

I took a close up so you could see the layers and see
how pretty these flowers really are...
I can see making so many things with these....
Can't wait...

Check out Daisy's shop and you will find so
many gorgeous printable images you will want 
them all... and you can 
because they are so affordable!

Tsunami Rose Designs - Hummingbird Folio

Today I am going to show you a very cool folio I made.
I used Tsunami Rose Designs Hummingbird Kits

I love hummingbirds so this month's design team project
is one of my favourites!
I love every single one of Daisy's hummingbird kits.
(Actually I really love all of Daisy's printable goodies)

Here is my folio..
It is a very cool design.
It is from Mel B.  Gatefold Folio Album 
(Country Craft Creations)
I used a magnet closure for this album.
You can also tuck the corner behind the twine bow.
I made flowers with my cricut and rubbed ink 
on them for some pops of colour.
I added flat flowers under the paper flowers
for dimension and colour.

As  you will see in the next pictures the hummingbird
digital papers are amazing. They are so vivid and
just so beautiful.

Here is the back of my folio..
I just love the postcards.
I can see making so many different cards and
goodies with these.
               Aren't the hummingbirds just gorgeous!!!!       

Look at all these wonderful hummingbirds.
I chose this folio so I could use so many 
of the different hummingbirds.
The middle is a waterfall feature.

This folio is for Words of Wisdom.
Add your own also.

These are side booklets.
I also used embossing folders.

Tsunami Rose Designs - Kitten Memoirs Tags

Happy Wednesday!
Today I am posting for Tsunami Rose Designs!
I made for you three very cool tags made 
with Daisy's digital paper.
It's called Kitten Memoirs.
I absolutely love this digital paper.
The kittens and cats are so darn cute.
And as you know I LOVE digital paper
because I can use the ones I love over and over again..

Check out this beautiful cat paper that I made into a 
3-D tag.. I used homemade texture paste to make the leaves
The flowers and twine are from my stash.
I got some cute doillies from the dollar store and I 
added a brad to it...
Happy Birthday is a die cut.
This is my rustic tag.

Here is my elegant, blingy tag.
This cat just had to have jewels and flowers.
It said to me lots and lots of bling.
All the flowers and jewels are from my stash.

I love the simplicity of this tag..
I added thanks with homemade texture paste.
Don't you just love that cute milk tag on it.
I love the playful kittens on the paper.
The flowers and the bling are from my stash.
I also added homemade texture paste under the paper also
for a multi-dimensional look.

Hope you enjoy the tags as much as I did making them..

Tsunami Rose Designs - Kitten Memoirs

Today I am posting for Tsunami Rose Designs
For my design team project I chose tags....
I thought they would be cute for birthday presents.
And they are the cutest! 
It is full of tags and pockets and journalling pieces.
I just love this pack as there is the cutest little kittens,
there is old fashioned kittens and there are cats.
You could make the most amazing things with this kit
I can see a folio in my future and likely a cute mini album
as my daughter loves cats.

The patterned paper under the kitten pocket is adorable
with milk jugs and such.
This paper is very versatile. As you see I have made 4 very different tags.
And if you come back and check out my blog on May 9th I will have 
3 more that are very different...
On this first tag I used a gorgeous little rose from my stash.
The happy birthday is a die cut.
I added a cute ticket from the kit to the kitten pocket.
The dot ribbon is from my stash.
I think this kitten is my very favourite.

Isn't he just adorable!

Look at these kittens all dressed up with
those cute bonnets... 
These came already made as tags and I just 
matted them and added jewels and flowers.

Love love love these kittens!

And for this tag I added the Happy Birthday die cut.
I added the heart with the cats (it came in the kit like that!)
I added stickles here and there.

The best thing about this kit is you can get it right now
and you can print the pages out over and over again..
I love digital kits because a lot of them are my favourite papers
and now I don't have to hoard them anymore.
I can use them over and over again...

You can find Daisy's store here...

Tsunami Rose Designs - Easter Basket

Happy Friday!
Today I am showing you an Easter Basket
made with heavy cardboard and digital papers.
Today my Easter Basket is made with digital papers 
Daisy has the most amazing digital papers 
and her prices are just as amazing...
Check it out!!!!

This Easter Basket was made with Easter Blessings 
Journalling Digital Kit Part 1

I made the original basket with cereal boxes.
Hot glued everything together and added pearls.
I had to use some other paper to make the rosettes
as my printer only prints 8x1/2x11 and they are long.
I can only imagine if I had a 12 x 12 printer
I would never have to buy paper again..
I could use Daisy's digital papers all the time.

I love this kit as you can use it for so many different
types of Easter projects...
There is religious pieces and subtle pieces like 
the paper I used on the side of the basket.
And there is just fun pieces..
(Check out my cards in my last blog post.)

Check out this envelope that I made into a 
Gift Card Holder...
that bunny is just adorable.

Today I am posting some Easter cards I made with Tsunami Rose Designs
printable papers. I love these papers because I can print any paper I want
over and over again... I don't have to hoard my favorite papers anymore!!!

flowers from my stash...
This was so fun to make.

I just love the vibrant colours.
These papers are just spring and I just love
every piece of this kit.

As you see I have embossed pieces of the box.
I used some silver hardware for the box.
This will be filled with Easter grass and 
use for Chocolate!!!!

This card is a lever card.
You can find it here.
The paper is from Easter Blessings and Easter Blessings 2

Sparkly pink paper and gems add some shine 
to this card.

These library cards just fit perfectly on this card.
I added gold pen and gems and this card
almost made itself with these pretty papers.
Don't you just love digital papers...

I even embossed the inside.

Here is my third card for today!
Another card with the Easter Blessings digital papers.
I added a cross charm.
And some pretty cross diecuts.
