Deedee's Digis - August Digi of the Month Challenge

Hello, my friends!

I am back today to share my project for Deedee's August Digi of the Month Challenge.
This digi is called "Seasonal Baskets" and you can find it in  Deedee's Shop.
It's another wonderful set with numerous images and sentiments!

As always, Deedee's digi sets come with precoloured images, or ones you can colour yourself.
 I chose to use the Fall basket from this great set, and I coloured it myself.
I also used one of the sentiments that were included in the set.


Materials Used:
Papers: Unknown from my Stash;
Markers: Spectrum Noir;
Punch: Martha Steward Punch Around the Page - Fall Leaves;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

Since I created a project using the August digi,
I will receive another free digi set for the September challenge.
I know I'm doing this rather late in the month but Deedee made August a special "free for all" month.
If you head over to the link-up page HERE
you'll find a free image to use to enter the challenge.
Then you can also join in the fun and receive next months image!
I can't wait to see what it is! 

I hope you're all having a wonderful week! :o)

Remember Me?

Hello, my dear friends!

I am finally back to share a new project with you!
It's been taking me quite some time to get back into the swing of things after my big adventure!
I hope to be around to visit you all very soon! 
I've missed you! :o)

This is the second project using the wonderful "Ephemera's Heartsong" kit 
from Ephemera's Vintage Garden
  You can find it HERE.

I must say that I think this is one of my very favorite kits from EVG.
It is so cheerful and versatile!

This time I opted to decorate a 6 X 6 canvas.
Using only the Heartsong Kit, and some lovely embellishments from Where Ideas Bloom,
I turned it into this fun photo/memo holder!

I have placed a beautiful flower photo in the holder, as it matched beautifully!
It could also be used for a calendar or schedule reminders.


The girl, flowers, and sentiment are all popped up on foam tape.
I added the fun star buttons in matching colours.
I added glitter to the center of the flowers and on the stars.
I also placed Glossy Accents over the words to make them shine.



Here's a closer look!
I have also added some stickles to the girls hair for added dimension. 
Isn't that a great sentiment? :o)


Here you can see the depth of the canvas.
Using my Dremel, I drilled a hole in the center of the top of the canvas.
I then placed the memo holder into the hole and added glue to secure it.
Finally, I added a ribbon bow and a butterfly from the kit. 


Materials Used:

From Ephemera's Vintage Garden:
