LSHD Tear Bear Beach Scene Box Frame

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful day. Today, I'm stopping in to share this 8x8 box frame that I created for a baby shower gift.

I used the following patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

The idea for this project came from the couple's registry where I saw they were doing a whale, nautical theme. And as you can see they are having a girl named Emerson.

I cut the following file pieces out using my Silhouette Cameo 3. I then assembled them out of cardstock. For my bear I cut out the file and made him out of mulberry paper.

I then made the background my coloring shells and stars with Nuvo glitter markers, I did the same to the letters. I added pearlies and sequins from my favorite Queen & Co.

I finished it off by adding sand and shells from our vacation in July to Virginia Beach.

This was so much fun! My creativity just flowed with love for this one.

Thanks for stopping over, have a happy Crafty Day!

Sparkly Peach Flower Tear Bear Scrapbook Paper Piecings

Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing these tear bear scrapbook embellishments that I created using patterns from The Beary Scrap. 

I finally got a chance to craft after almost 2 months off. Unfortunately, I had a house fire in November and my supplies went to muck. However, I am working on replacements and everyone survived. So, I am very blessed.

I created these using thick 150gsm mulberry paper. I traced the pattern pieces into the back of the mulberry paper and hand tore them one by one. I inked the edges in Chestnut Roan by Colorbox and then assembled using my go to Fabri- Tac. 

I took mulberry flowers and used stickles on them to make them shine. However, this is hard to tell in the picture. I added some yellow pearls to compliment them. I finished them off by brushing the mulberry paper with a soft brush.

These are the only item in my Etsy shop at the moment But I hope to get more items listed in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a happy crafty day!

Fall Ultrasound Pregnancy Tear Bear Sonogram Frame

Hello, Today I'm over on the Kadoodle Bug Designs Challenge Blog. I'm sharing my latest creation which is part of the New Kadoodle Bug Designs Facebook Challenge going on here: Kadoodle Bug Designs Facebook Challenge.

The theme is Halloween or Anything Happy.

I created this Sonogram box frame using my Cricut Explore and the following SVG cut Files from Kadoodle Bug Designs. These are must haves and have no many uses.

I designed this in Cricut Design Space, and cut out everything with my Cricut. I also made the titles using design space. I cut extra leaves, pumpkins and added a few cute stickers.

I chalked all of my piece edges to add extra dimension and used black and white gel pens to add more detail. This was a super fun project.

This is how I made my tear bear. I cut the pattern out in cardstock and then traced them into mulberry paper. I then hand tore the pieces in two layers and then glued them together. I flipped them upside down and fluffed the edges with a wire brush, hand chalked and pieced together like my other paper piecings. I finished then off by brushing my bear with a soft brush.

I had so much fun making this and thanks for stopping by.
