Happy Mother’s Day Banner Greeting Card

By | Cards | No Comments

mothersdaybanner

Hi all,

I’m back with another card for mother’s day. Again I chose to use my silhouette to create the sentiment. I had a set of these gorgeous banner die-cuts that I wanted to use at the very top of the card. I adjusted my settings accordingly in silhouette studio and created my large sentiment.

To finish the card, I used a white gel pen around the edges to create a look of faux stitching.

As you can see I am still into the corals and teals. I love how this card also incorporates some soft yellows. Also, every other banner is sparkly…did you notice? This card is just so shimmery and bright in the light. I love it!

I hope you have a lovely afternoon and thanks for stopping by!

Doily Banner Notecards

Hi all,

It’s no secret that in the craft world everyday items become the foundation to create something new. Today, I’m taking fancy lace like papers we use to dress our desserts to create a set of notecards. Now, I didn’t actually use the paper version for a doily, but rather a set of images from a stamp set. A while back I purchased a couple of gorgeous stamp sets from My Minds Eye that included a couple of doily images that I thought would make the perfect foundation for a set of notecards. When I purchased these sets, I immediately knew how I wanted to purpose those specific stamps.

I used my favorite blank onyx ink and stamped the doily images as the foundation for the cards. Next, I layered on dimensional die-cuts of another set of doilies. Yes, doilys on top of doilys. Too busy? Absolutely not. By keeping the base black and neutral, the die-cuts are grounded to something – otherwise they’d just look like they are ‘floating’ in the middle of the page.

Next, I used a woodgrain banner stamp and grabbed a few of my favorite spring ink colors from Hero Arts. The key was to not add too much color. Keep it simple.

To finish off the cards I added some details (stripes, borders, and a few extra woodgrain lines) using a black gel pen.

I love that these cards are so simple but have multiple layered images to create a beautiful visual impact.

DIY Room Decor – Fabric Heart Garland

By | Room Decor | No Comments

Hi all,
I’m here today to share a very quick and easy project for some extra pizzaz to a room. Nowadays, many craft stores and home decor stores carry small fabric squares. Typically they can be found in a bundle of coordinating colors and designs. I happened to have a set and thought it’d put it to use but keep in mind that really any type of fabric works, and if you don’t have fabric – try felt!

Here’s a quick video on how I created this beauty.


You can create this same look at home using a stencil or template. For your convenience, I’ve created a FREE download for you to use. Simply click the button below.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I’ve inspired you to create something DIY and handmade for your space!

Jewelry Storage and Organization Idea

By | Craftroom Storage, Room Decor | No Comments

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all are having a wonderful week! I’ve been working away on some big and little projects I have lined up for the upcoming weeks! But first I wanted to share a quick little organization piece I made the other day.

Firstly, I have several configuration boxes that are in need of a purpose. You may recall I have done a Christmas themed one and a washi tape organizer with another one. This round I decided to take one of your suggestions and make a jewelry organizer/display!

I used my go-to spray paint in heirloom white. I also grabbed some handpainted paper (check it out in the boxes that aren’t woodgrain). The tone on tone look is so sophisticated! Lastly, I tied gold thread to each box – I chose string instead of hooks to maximize the amount this beauty can hold.

Here’s the finished piece. How gorgeous is this?! Now, since this was a follower’s suggestion – it’s up for sale. I am so excited to be able to ship this off to one of you to enjoy! If interested, check out my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/JolieSamuel

Have an awesome day friends and thanks for stopping by!
