7 Dots Studio Lost and Found Card and Tag Set


Hello everyone, I would love to share a fun card and tag set I made for 7 Dots Studio. This tag set was made with a farmer in mind. I wanted to incorporate the true farm like of cow and roosters. And of course with me, I love all my layers. I used the beautiful Lost and Found Collection with the rich earthly tones of browns and greens. Adding  the extra details of farm rub-ons and doily chipboard.

Letter Art Creative Embellishments


I would love to share a fun project I made for my co-workers this past holiday season. I made these monogram letters to hang off their gift bags. These were so fun to make, lots of layer and lots of paint and great texture.

A Letter 2

I made a short video of the layers and creative process.


I used various products and I started with the large letters, I did split a few word sets up but overall I used the Fun Large Letters and the Adore Letters. I added a thick layer of paste.

N Letter

S Letter

Using various gears and flourish’s I layered each letter. I used theFlourish 14  and the Flourish 2 on the more elegant ones and medium and mini gears and grunge arrows and arrow banners on more the grungy ones.


After all was said and done I  set it aside to dry, I ran to the store and did some other running around and by the time I came back, there were dry enough to start painting, We played secret Santa this year at work and one of the questions was favourite colour, So I tried to match according to the answers on the questionnaire.

A Letter

These were such fun and neat little gifts, easy to do and personalise, I hope you give them a try sometime. Thank you for stopping by.

“Chilly” Mixed Media Layout Creative Embellishments

Welcome to 2020. Wow where did the year go???? I am happy to say I am on CE for another term. I am grateful to be with such an amazing group of talented people. Thank you.

On to my first project for 2020! here is a mixed media layout based off the January challenge. Here is a fun layout made of our annual tree hunting at the tree farm. The tractor ride, hot chocolate and just get family fun. I started this layout with some subtle background texture with the distress crackle stamp and the Snowflake stencil. I ending up mixing paste with glitter to get the subtle effect. I added more paste to the second layer with the Falling Stars Stencil. After various layers I did a fair amount of emobossing on theSnowflake Doily and the Icicle Frame. After adding various elements like flowers, antique paper and ribbon, I finished off the page with the “Chilly” word from eh Blizzard Word Set.

Here is a short video of the creative process, Happy New Year to you all!

Reindeer Cards Creative Embellishments


I would love to share another fun set of cards I made while at Maggi’s A fun set this is a fun set of tags. I started with the paper, I ran out of paper…… I made a total of 12 plus projects, so you can just imagine you can only fit so much paper in a suitcase.

CE Reindeer Card and Tag

I did a make n tag and this was some paper I had left over, Jen wanted to demonstrate another card and of course I needed to try it. I had a few ATC coins left over and hadn’t touched the Jumping Deers yet, so what could I do to make something out of it.

CE Reindeer Card and Tag 5

I watched Jen’s demo and cut my base of the card, and then the building begins. Lots of fussy cutting and layers to build up the card.

CE Reindeer Card and Tag 3

I used a sponge and a blend of titan buff and burnt amber fluid acrylic to get the shading and texture on the jumping deers.

I had the poinsettia set, some of it had been painted from a previous project and worked with this one. I just had to add a little more paint and fit them in the flower cluster. So the great thing I have going for me is I have all of my Christmas cards and tags all done. Boy is that a good feeling, I usually am rushing but not this year. So Happy holiday to you all and Happy New Year!

Thank you for stopping by.

Creative Embellishments Holiday Tags

Hello all, I would love to share a set of tags I made with lots of goodies from the store.  Last year I made tags and they were a hit. We actually make maple syrup and what better gift at Christmas than a homemade maple syrup with a beautiful Christmas tag to go with it.

December CE Tags 1

Funny thing, I made these while I was at Maggi’s, I had some issues with what I was seeing in my brain to what was happening on the tags. At one point, I only had No and Jo on the tags instead of Joyeux Noel. Boy did we laugh.

December CE Tags

I did make a video of how these came together, I did edit out the No and Jo 🙂 Its a short one.

I assembled various tags and Artist Trading Coins with paper. I applies a layer of crackle paste with the Distressed Crackle Stencil and set aside to dry while I heat emboss all of the Merry Christmas sentiments and the snowflakes.

I love the deer heads and used them on the larger tags. I layered the Merry Christmas Sentiments and added a small flower cluster.

December CE Tags 4

These little tags came out how I envisioned them. The Jouyeux hanging off the tag to where it is going to dangle. I added the snowflake in the flower cluster and used some deconstructed tacky old Christmas ornaments Jen, Billie and I found at a thrift sale on our walk.

December CE Tags 10

Now these ones I thought were going to dangle like real ornaments, that is where the No and Jo came in. I struggled with the ribbon choice, but I was determined to get the right look…………ok well trash that, I  just glue them down. 😉 but the Christmas Bulbs still dangled so I still got some of the effect I was looking for.

December CE Tags 7

These are so fun and they are going to work great for my gifts and maple syrup.  I hope they inspire you all to have some fun this holiday season. Happy Holidays to you all!

Ciao Bella Paper Shaker Cards

Hello all, I want to share these fun shaker cards I made while at our scrappy girls weekend. Jen brought all these shakers and I was determined to get some DT commitments done. I was limited on what I had for paper with but I totally love this collection. Using the  shakers as inspiration, they just came together.

Snow Globe.jpg

Because I had limited room with making videos. I do have a short video for you, but these came together rather quickly. I had brought the paper and all the matching colours of flowers.


These cards are so fun, When I get some down time I will make some matching envelopes and decorate with some of the cut outs from the A4 pack.

Using the inspiration from the background paper, the mitten was perfect, the cold chilly ice skating.

Mitten Shaker

The last card, I used cut out from the A4 collection to put it the center of the “O”,

 I want to send out a Big Thank you to Buttons Galore and More for all the beautiful fillings to go with these beautiful cards. matches the paper collection perfectly. Thank you.

I hope you enjoy and Happy Holidays to you All! Enjoy

Creative Embellishments Advent Calendar

What a fun project, and how perfect is this for the montly challenge. Who doesnt like glitter and who doesn’t like daily treat to celebrate the holiday season. I will have to admit this project was tedious and time consuming, but fun. and I actually only used one product from the store, I think that is a first for me. I absolutely the the Christmas Countdown Set. I used some old packaging, I glued 4 of the together and started to cut and measure…….until I had the pockets all covered inside and out. I needed to somehow fit the title on the piece and actually used a skewer, painted it and attached the title like a billboard. I filled the chambers with small candies and money, starting with smaller bills and working up to bigger ones.

Here is the inspirational photo, I cant wait to see the entires.


Here are a few close-ups.

I incorporated the glitter on the wood chambers and in the shimmer from the sprays I used to colour the Christmas Countdown.

Graphic 45 Layout Creative Embellishments


Such a fun layout I made at Maggi’s, I actually ran out of projects I brought and decided to make a layout, I usually bring some photos of the kids or of our adventures and thought its been awhile since I made a layout. Maggi said “Here’s some paper if you can do something with it.” Well did I ever.

CE November Layout

Here  is a short video of the creative process.

The paper was so beautiful I added some simple subtle details on the background with the Distress Crackle stamp along with the distress Diamond stamp. Topping off the texture with the Distress Patterns Stencil and some embossing powder.

CE November Layout 4

Using layers I made a pocket on the page, using some pre-made tags, I wanted something to journal on and slide into the page that could be easily removed. So being at Maggi camp and with the Queen on minis and pockets and flips and folds. The spirit was in the air to go with the flow.

I changed up the title half way through the creation. I thought the title would get lost in the composition so I moved it to the edge to help you eyes flow across the page.

CE November Layout 2

This was a fun day with Olivia, we went on a field trip to the ice skating rink. I haven’t had skates on since grade school. It’s just like riding a bike. Then we went to the movie theater for a movie. Yep it;s been years for that one too. But we made many great memories. Me and my little mini Me.

I hope you enjoy and Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy and be creative.
