"Live Laugh Love" upcycled wall art

Hello Crafty Friends!

It is my time to share a project at Quietfire Creations.  The project is upcycled wall art.  I took a tired, out of date item, repainted it, and used Quietfire Designs' dies, Live, Laugh and Love to create a fresh and happy piece of wall art.
The dies were used to cut both ivory and pink card stock.
The flowers are from my crafty stash.  Frosted Lace Stickles was used on the flower centers.
The project came together in a flash and it felt good to reuse an item that may have never been used again.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the upcycle project.  :)
Have a happy, crafty day!

"Just living is not enough" Graphic 45 Secret Garden card

Hello Crafty Friends!

How is your spring going thus far?  I have been busy as a bee working on the gardens and lawn.  It is great seeing the gardens springing to life.  And the birds are so happy- perfect background sounds while gardening!

The soon-to-be-flowering gardens inspired this fancy fold card using Quietfire Design's Just living is not enough stamp...
  ...and Graphic 45's Secret Garden papers.  The card came together quickly after a wee bit of fussy cutting.
The card base was created using Sizzix' Side Step card die.  Stickles was used on the flower centers and all of the leaves.
Secret Garden paper was difficult to cut as I do not have many of the 8x8 papers left...but I am glad I did it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day.
Kathy Jo
