Happy Birthday, Stephanie!

We’re celebrating a birthday with Stephanie, one of the Lovebug Creations Creative Team members, today. Here’s a card I made for her using some gorgeous Lovebug Creations products.

 

ScarletCalliope Stephanie Birthday 2014 1

 

I used some of the newest Rumple Ribbon to make a pretty bow, this color is Garden Green from the Gardens of Tara collection. Sitting atop the bow is a Beautiful Bloom from the Love in Bloom collection.

 

ScarletCalliope Stephanie Birthday 2014 2

I also used some White Mama’s Mesh to give a little texture on top of the yellow heart paper.

 

Stephanie, from the bottom of my creative heart I wish you a wonderful day full of sweet surprises and a year that brings your heart joy and love. Enjoy today and celebrate all month long! And to my visitors, Thank You for stopping by to see my blog post. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Please leave a Happy Birthday message for Stephanie in the comments!

ScarletCalliope Kimi Birthday 6

Welcome to

KIMI’S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!


Have you been seeing the cutest birthday projects ever?  If you arrived at my blog and would like to start at the beginning, which is also the birthday girl’s blog, please hop on over to Lovebug Creations. If you arrived at my blog from Dawn Mercedes, then you’re in the right place!

Here’s my birthday card for Kimi:

 

ScarletCalliope Kimi Birthday 1

Kimi’s favorite colors are pink and green so I created a card and sweet faux cupcake photo holders using those colors. I hope she likes them!

 

ScarletCalliope Kimi Birthday 2

My card features several Lovebug Creations products:

Rumple Ribbon in Purpledise

Simply Sheer Ribbon in White

Mama’s Mesh in White

Beautiful Blooms in White

 

 

ScarletCalliope Kimi Birthday 3

Doesn’t the Mama’s Mesh look so nice behind all of those crazy colors? The embossed pattern you see on the hot pink is from Tim Holtz.

 

ScarletCalliope Kimi Birthday 4

I created some faux cupcakes using directions I found online and this was a MESSY project. There was plaster, caulk, and paint everywhere! I had to experiment with the frosting and ended up using caulk mixed with a little bit of plaster and some acrylic paint. The plaster gave the caulk the sturdiness it needed to hold up until it dried.

 

ScarletCalliope Kimi Birthday 5

These pretty ribbons are Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations in Purpledise. Each cupcake has a different sprinkle. The first one has mica, the second has glass glitter and the third has pink glitter.

Kimi, Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people in the whole world. I wish that Ohio was closer to California so that we could get together and craft and I could give you a Happy Birthday Hug in person!

And to everyone who stopped by, Thank You for hopping!  Please leave a happy comment for Kimi before you go!  Your next destination is over to Kristi to see her pretty project.

Home Decor: Tea Cup and Lavender Sachet Tea Bag

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Women are like tea bags.

We don’t know our true strength

til we’re in hot water!

-Eleanor Roosevelt

 

And how true is that? We’re going along through life and we get slammed from the side from some unforeseen challenge and we rise up to meet it. It’s not until later that we realize exactly what we’ve just accomplished and give ourselves a pat on the back for meeting the challenge head on and not running from it.

For this week’s project, I’m inspired by all things tea related so I’ve created a tea cup from scratch. My challenge, thankfully a small one this time, is that I want a certain tea cup shaped die and it’s sold out everywhere. If only I’d bought it when it was first released! (Foiled again!)  So, I created my own template and I’m sharing it with you in case you’d like to make your own cup of tea!

ScarletCalliope Tea Cup 1

This tea cup features some beautiful Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon in “Crushed” from the Loves Me, Loves Me Knot Collection and a little bit of “Buttercream” from the I Do Collection.

 

ScarletCalliope Tea Cup 2

The flower is from the Love in Bloom Collection in “Crushed“. Beautiful Blooms are made of clay, hand dyed and have a glossy finish to the top side of them. The bottom is not glossy to make it easy to adhere these embellishments to your projects.

 

ScarletCalliope Tea Cup 3

I filled the tea bag with some organic lavender and it smells so good! Wouldn’t this make a great gift for Mother’s Day, a birthday or even as a favor for a wedding shower?

 

 

ScarletCalliope Tea Cup Template

 

Here’s the free printable, ready for you to glue to chipboard and cut out or use as a template with your own card stock glued to chipboard.   To create my cup I glued card stock to both sides of a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ chipboard and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I cut out my shapes. The base of the cup can also be punched out using a 1.5″ circle punch, just use two pieces of card stock and glue them back to back.  You’ll want to use a really strong adhesive tape, like Sookwang, or even a low temp glue gun to ensure the cup doesn’t come apart. I used regular paper glue to attach the cup base and let it dry upside down overnight. To create the handles, I wrapped the chipboard around a pencil to get the curlicue effect and then used adhesive tape to attach it to the cup. To shape the saucer, I just gently pulled up the edges and worked my way around the shape to get the edges to come up.

Thanks for stopping by to see my project.  Remember, stay calm and drink tea.  Have a great week!

ScarletCalliope Spring Bunny Box 1

My favorite spring celebration is Easter because I just adore bunnies, pretty pastel colors and especially Easter candy. Who can resist?

 

ScarletCalliope Spring Bunny Box 2

Pretty pink “Dahlia” Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations tops off this decoration with a beautiful flourish. I started with a plain chipboard box, painted it, layered on some sheet music and gave it some cute pink stripes. Bunnie’s basket is made from chipboard as well that I formed into a basket shape.

 

ScarletCalliope Spring Bunny Box 3

Isn’t this pastel ribbon color dreamy?  This lil bird thinks so!

 

ScarletCalliope Spring Bunny Box 4

Baby mushrooms are one of my weaknesses!  Eek! They started out red but I gave them the pink treatment. Vintage flowers are from Michelle Hurtt.

 

And, just in case you missed the Mama’s Rose that I snuck onto my Fleurette Bloom/Lovebug Creations Hop project yesterday, here it is again:

ScarletCalliope Spring 3

This Mama’s Rose started out white but I painted it gold to match the rest of my project. I love how this elegant rose gives my project elegant dimension.

Welcome to the Fleurette Bloom and LoveBug Creations Co-Hop!

If you’ve come over from Chantel, you’re in the right place. But if you’ve landed here and want to begin with the first stop, head over to Fleurette!

The pairing of Lovebug Creation’s fantastic Rumple Ribbon and trimmings with Fleurette Bloom’s outstanding SVG’s (Scalable Vector Graphics) and digital delights is a great way to freshen up your projects. Who wants to be ho-hum?  Not us!

You’ve seen some fabulously fresh projects so far and there’s more to be seen. Are you ready to see what I’ve made?

To begin, I used the Fleurette Bloom Swan Lake SVG Card Collection which includes everything you see in this picture.

swan lake elements

Swan Lake SVG Card Kit / Collection

 

lush flower collection

And I used the “Lush Flowers” 3D SVG Collection.

 

 

ScarletCalliope Spring 1

I created a replica of an antique French Globe de Mariee using Panther Pink Rumple Ribbon and a gorgeous mystery product from Lovebug Creations (check back for the reveal tomorrow!), and some adorable Swans and a Peony from Fleurette Blooms SVG Cutting Files.

 

ScarletCalliope Spring 2

Here it is without the glass. What do you think? Each detail in these Globe de Mariee’s symbolized a different aspect of a French bride’s marriage and French Garden House has a lovely blog post about the history of them if you want to learn more.

 

ScarletCalliope Spring 4

Doesn’t this Pink Panther ribbon look dreamy against the silk velvet cushion?  I’m absolutely swooning!

ScarletCalliope Spring 3

Ooh la la!

ScarletCalliope Spring 5

My love for swans burns brighter than ever and these SVG cutting files from Fleurette Bloom are incredible. The detail on the wings is amazing and their little eyes and beaks are just precious!

ScarletCalliope Spring 6

This beautiful, dimensional Peony is from the Fleurette Bloom Lush Flowers Collection.

ScarletCalliope Spring 7

And some detail shots. I made the crown in a Beaded Tiara class with Arlene Baker and I’m just so tickled with the way it turned out! Dresden is from Gilding the Lily in Fullerton, CA. Vintage millinery flowers and fruits are from Michelle Hurtt.

Now, how about some BLOG CANDY??

Field Trip: Glitterfest 2014

Glitterfest 2014

This weekend was the much anticipated Glitterfest in Anaheim, CA hosted by Sheryl Simpson and Dianne White of Whimzy in Tustin, CA. They also have a show in the fall and I look forward to both every year. I have some good friends who bring their art and treasures here and each time I go I make new friends!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 1

This year the Expo Center was decorated with a sweet candy theme and I just adore the sweet colors!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 2

One of the vendors is my friend, Michelle Hurtt, selling some beautiful and truly authentic vintage millinery flowers and blooms. These flowers are from the 1930′s through the 1950′s and are virtually impossible to find anymore. The collection that she has is in amazing condition and what an extensive and beautiful collection she has!  For this Glitterfest, Michelle wanted to share some of her treasures with the Glitterfest attendees and introduce everyone to her new business. Last week we chose the flowers from her warehouse and I put them together into color collections. I’m so proud of my friend for going out on a limb and pursuing her passion and I’m excited for her new business venture. I can’t wait to see what direction she takes with her incredible stash of goodies. Michelle is known for her exquisite attention to detail and her beautiful design sense and I know that everything that comes out of her studio will be stunning!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 3

Here I am with sweet Lisa Loria in the photo booth!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 6

Lisa is known for her whimsical designs and is going back to her artistic roots and spending more time painting. I am loving the direction she is headed in!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 7

More of Lisa’s adorable work!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 5

Have you ever seen a cuter necklace?  These are made by Tara Wilson of Lulu Max Jewelry.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 4

Tara specializes in mixing vintage pieces of jewelry with modern pieces and creates truly one-of-a-kind wearable art.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 8

These gorgeous pastries are from Kristy Lynn of Sweet Insanity Bake Shop.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 13

Here’s my favorite son, Trevor, trying on some spectacles in the Little White Farmhouse booth. Since he was with me and being so patient I tried to hurry through the show and didn’t get to spend as much time looking, chatting and taking pictures as I usually do. But, he was such a good sport and even carried a really heavy cement head to the car for me without me even asking!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 14

Little White Farmhouse always has a wonderful collection of vintage items that I just love!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 15

And then I saw two of my friends, Dotti Cordell and Jo Lynch!  I was introduced to these girls through a swap hosted by one of my BFF’s, Julie Weller, and met them in person for the first time at Glitterfest a year ago. We keep in touch via Facebook and I just love them!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 18

While walking through the aisles this table caught my eye. I saw some very familiar art work and did a double take. I had no idea that Julie Haymaker Thompson would be at Glitterfest!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 17

I’ve always loved her art and can I just tell you how thrilled I was to finally meet her in person? Her art is cute, fun and whimsical and she is one of the most down to earth people I’ve ever met. I think I’ve convinced her that she has to come out to Orange County again in the very near future to teach a class. (I’m not above begging if I have to!)

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 19

I just love her style, the colors she uses and her paper clay dolls are just so fun and unique.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 21

One of her dolls is holding a cat and since I have 5 cats and may have been nicknamed “Crazy Cat Lady” by my niece, Noel, I just knew Julie’s doll was destined to come home with me. This picture shows my kitties, Mr Darcy and KirJava, checking out the adorable doll.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 9

One of my favorite booths is Tiki Ranch and they never disappoint with an extensive selection of findings, bits, bobs and doo dads.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 10

Victorian Scrap?  Tiki Ranch has it covered!

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 11

I found some fun treasures in the booth of Leticia Fernandez of JLF Design Studio. From Charlotte heads to paper clay creations she had a fun mix of goodies to peruse.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 12

I found a bevy of beautiful jewelry in this booth from Susan of Susan’s Charming Trinkets.

ScarletCalliope Glitterfest 2014 16

Do you love miniature animals like I do?  This booth from Meyer Imports had wonderful reproduction mushrooms, mini plastic animals just like you used to get in the cracker jack box and every color of German glass glitter that you can imagine!

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my review of Glitterfest 2014.  Have a wonderfully creative weekend!

Class: Bunny Boudoir Lamp with Colleen Moody

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

ScarletCalliope Bunny Boudoir Lamp 1

I feel like one of the luckiest girls in the whole world. Just over a week ago I was being spoiled at the lovely home of artist Colleen Moody creating this beautiful bunny out of paper clay.  I drove up to Danville, CA with Kim Caldwell, Terry Frias, and Mariasela Vallejo and let me tell you, it was an adventure to remember! We were joined in some of our adventures by Sylvia Estrada and her mom. From being surrounded by bee’s, to a wonderful two days of class with Colleen, to a very wet ending at the Alameda Point Antique Flea Market (it wasn’t supposed to rain until later in the afternoon!), we were going non-stop with unexpected shenanigans the whole weekend. We laughed so much my cheeks hurt!  I have pictures of the treasure we found and the stops we made, but that’s another post for another day.

ScarletCalliope Bunny Boudoir Lamp 2

Today I want to share my bunny lamp with you in all of her lovely finery. She carries a bouquet of vintage flowers tied up with some beautiful Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon in Panther Pink. Her lace dress is edged in the vintage-inspired color, William.

ScarletCalliope Bunny Boudoir Lamp 4

She’s a great fan of Swan Lake so she carries a swan seated on a satin pillow and a ballet princess in her basket, surrounded by vintage velvet leaves and flowers. I created a pearl cuff for her to wear.

ScarletCalliope Bunny Boudoir Lamp 3

A vintage earring adorns her velvet ribbon belt and a pearl tiara graces her head. Covering her shoulders is a vintage collar bespoke with antique french gold bullions. I made an attempt to give her feather wings but one can’t be perfect at everything! I need to go back to the drawing board and learn how to apply glue and glass glitter to feathers without sticking all of them together.

If you’d like to learn more about Colleen, please visit her blog. She will be teaching an online class through Artful Gathering beginning in June but sign ups are going on now! Although this bunny looks complicated, Colleen makes learning to use paper clay easy and fun. She was so good about giving us great tips and info on how to use the clay and as a beginner to the medium, I was so thankful for all of the time she spent explaining her shortcuts and secret techniques! I highly recommend her to anyone who is able to take a class!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a lovely and creative week!

Happy Birthday, Connie!

We’re celebrating another birthday on the Lovebug Creations Creative Team!

ScarletCalliope Happy Day Connie 1

Happy Birthday, Connie!

Please join me in wishing her a wonderful day full of creativity and awesome surprises!  Leave her a comment to make her feel extra special!

ScarletCalliope Happy Day Connie 2

I created a card for the birthday girl inspired by vintage sewing notions. This greeting features one of the newer colors from Lovebug Creations, “Crushed” and I just adore this beautiful, warm Rumple Ribbon. It’s perfect for Spring, Summer and Fall.

I created the “Happy Day” sentiment using the Chip Art tools from Melody Ross. I was going for a leather bracelet look here, but it was a little more challenging than I was expecting. I guess I’m an optimist!

ScarletCalliope Happy Day Connie 3

The ribbon matched perfectly with this pad of “DIY SHOP” scrapbook paper that I have from Crate Paper.

ScarletCalliope Happy Day Connie 4

I added in a bit of White Mama’s Mesh to give it some additional texture. The white Rumple Ribbon is also from Lovebug Creations.

I love to use pattern in my designs but sometimes too much pattern is too much for the eye to handle. To solve this dilemma I like to separate patterns with a solid to give the eye a break and allow it to process the next print. Here I’ve separated the measuring tape paper from the floral background with a coral-colored paper. Although both papers came from the same coordinated paper stack, it might look messy and disorganized to leave them sitting next to each other.

ScarletCalliope Happy Day Connie 5

The Washi Tape was a present from my friend, Cynthia Flores, for a Valentine Swap that we were in and it worked perfectly here to match the base paper.

Connie, I’m sending you a wish for a wonderful month of celebrating and hope you have a creative and beautiful day!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Sewing: St Patrick’s Day Pin Cushion

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 1

I spent the weekend creating in a class with artist extraordinaire, Colleen Moody. I took her Bunny Boudoir Lamp class and was so entranced with her dolls, her home, her studio and her beautiful bulldogs, Otis and Lola. Colleen is known for her paper clay dolls, but excels at all sorts of other artistic endeavors. One of her creations, a gorgeous pink and white pin cushion, came home with me and inspired me to create one of my own.

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 2

I used Lovebug Creations Simply White to create a delicate, vintage-style focal point.

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 3

I added a vintage mother of pearl button to the Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon bow.

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 4

The four leaf clover on the top of the pin cushion is created from green wool felt, with hand embroidered details, vintage mother of pearl buttons and a vintage rhinestone button in the center.

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 5

I added some antique millinery flowers and a piece of tulle.

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 6

Next, some beautiful corsage pins.

ScarletCalliope Pin Cushion 7

And a top hat charm and a horse shoe charm for good luck!

Thank you for stopping by to see my project!  Have a wonderful week!

Christine Barker

PS:  Stop by later this week to learn more about my class with Colleen Moody and to hear about my adventures in antique stores and the Alameda Flea Market with my friends Kim, Terry, Mariasela, Sylvia and her mom!


May the Irish hills caress you.
