Happy Birthday Tanya!

We are just a few short hours away from beginning to celebrate a very special birthday! Tanya from Scrappin' KY Momma will be celebrating her birthday tomorrow.  So instead of posting something for her on her actual birthday, Lovebug Creations' gals and myself decided to do it the night before to surprise her!

Tanya is the sweetest, most caring person that I have had the pleasure to not just meet online because of our common interest in crafting, but to also call my friend.  She's a great mother and wife and juggles a lot between everything in her life.  If there is anyone that deserves to have a "spa day" is definitely her and I hope that I can accomplish that for her with this gift. 

 Here is everything that's inside for her ME days!

The tutorial for this box can be found at Splitcoaststampers.

Cardstock and Pattern Paper: Core'dinations and Authentic Lively Stack
Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon: Lots of Queen Taylor and Green Leaves
Jaded Blossom: Treat Tag Die, Mini Tag Dies, Pamper Yourself Stamp set,  Make a Wish Stamp Set, and Gusset Bags

Tanya, I hope you have the beautiful day that you deserve.  You are truly an amazing person with an amazing heart!!! Love you girl!!!! :)

Lovebug Creations Christmas New Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the Lovebug Creations Have Yourself a Meshy Rumple Christmas New Release and Blog Hop! 

If you have arrived here from Dawn Rene's blog then you are in the right place, and if you just happen to be visiting me, you don't want to miss all the fun projects and blog candy so head on over to Lovebug Creations and start from there.

I absolutely love the new ribbons in the store and can't wait to create even more with them!! This Christmas is sure going to be a lot of fun for me!

For my project I used Merry Mesh collection and also Simply Sheer Christmas Candy collection.

I saw that a couple of people made a Christmas tree with my 2nd most favorite crafty company Jaded Blossom mustache die (sorry girls.... Lovebug Creations is my first!), so I wanted to try to do the same thing, except that I added the mesh to it!!! Can I tell you just how much I love it!!!   

Mesh Tree Instructions
For the "mesh tree" I used cuttlebug's plate B and C.  I layered them exactly in this order, first the die, then the mesh and lastly I used a piece of cardstock (Core'dinations glittery white cardstock same as the base for the journal die).  When you cut in the matter, the mesh will automatically stick to the cardstock. 
 Add a bit of glue so the mesh will permanently stick to the cardstock.  

Additional Materials: 
Jaded Blossom's Layered Frame and Journal Die
Jaded Blossom's Mustache Dies
Jaded Blossom's Christmas Candies
Stampin' Up Petite Pennants Builder Punch (for the base)
