Matilda Button Boo

Hi Sweet Peeps!

This  evening I have a  delicious  treat for you.  I would like to  introduce you one of my newest  Boo   Characters ~~ Matilda Button Boo.

Over   the   Christmas  season I  created this lil  treasure but I   decided  to  wait to  release her  until I  had  her  all colored up.  Ans Since I  am   in bed  trying to  get  over my  cold/flu,  coloring  was the   most  appetizing  thing  to  do yesterday and  so  here she is  making her  official debut.

I have  hundreds of  characters  that need  some  coloring to make them  come  alive.... so  over the  next   few days  I will be  releasing  tons of  digis. Something  about   coloring  whether in bed  or near the  fire  place  that is   so  relaxing.

Anyway....  I  hope you  LOVE  Matilda as much  I  did  creating her.  She  has   such an innocent yet mischievous look about  her that is   sooooo  irresistible.

Matilda is now  available in my  Lacy Sunshine Shoppe.
Happy  crafting  everyone and  have a   delightful day!
Hugs, Heather

It's a Button Thing

What is  it about  BUTTONS!   Those  irresistible  buttons!

They  come in  such  a  wide  variety of  shapes, colors and  styles now. They  are  one of the most   versatile  crafting  candies to  embellish your  project  with.

From  drawing   digis  with  buttons  to  creating  with  these   wonderful gems...  there is  just  something  magical  about  BUTTONS!  Buttons   are  happy  lil  things  just like  daisies! (wink)  There is  just  something about them....  when  adding them to  your  cards and projects  you   just  cant help but  smile.

Here  are  a  few  lovely  creations  from   my  fans, fellow  crafters and   sunshine design  team  girls  which  include  buttons.

Hope you  love their  wonderfully  delicious  eye  candy.

Cuteness Overload

Hi Sweet Crafty Peeps!

Today I  have  2  special  treats  to share with you.

First,  from one of my  Creative  Team Artists,  Aletha,  here is  her gourmet project  featuring  Cupcake Sticky Wings.  Her recipe  follows:)

Here’s the recipe:
Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, R02
Icing, Wings, Baubles:
BG000, 02, 05, 07, 09
Eyes, Cupcake sleeve:
G40, 82, 94, 99
Hair, Dress, Wings:
RV91, 93, 95, 69
Ruffles, Socks, Cake:
Y21, 23, 26, 35
W00, 0, 1, 2, BG 02

"Cupcake was colored with Copics with a little accenting from a clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Marker. After the coloring I trimmed her with Spellbinder’s Label One die. I cut another piece with the same die but in Stampin’ Up!’s Rich Razzelberry cardstock. I then layered Cupcake on top of this cut.

My designer paper is Stampin’ Up!’s Petals and Paisleys collection. This was trimmed to size and distressed with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. For my layering I used more Rich Razzelberry and added Old Olive cardstock.

For my embellishments I used some Spellbinder’s Die D-Lites Blooms One. My little sprigs are another D-Lites die Corner Sprigs. I found the ribbon in my stash (so glad I kept this), and tied the bow and added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Cindy Echtinaw’s new clear stamp set “Big & Small Says it All.” I love all of Cindy’s stamps. The majority of her stamps are designed for Spellbinder’s dies. After the stamping, I cut Happy Birthday with the D-Lites die Petite Label One. I think I am going to be using the D-Lites dies a lot. That die cut was glued to my bow."


Such  great  eye  candy! Terrific  coloring, color palette and  layout.  Thank you   Aletha  for  creating  such a  beautiful card.   For those of you  wanting to  see more  of  Aletha's  work  please  visit her blog.

And  for  our   next    treat ~   I  am pleased  to  share with you  NEW Digi Candy!

BASHFUL BUTTON and BOWS BOO  makes her  debut.  Total  cuteness overload I  do  say!!!!

Bashful Boo, my  latest  addition to  my  boo  family, is  now  available in the  new section of my  shoppe.

Have  a wonderful   crafting  day!

Hugs, Heather

Digis - Cute As A Button

Hi  fellow  crafters!

As promised I am blogging  again for the second time today and I  am back with two NEW digis that are  Cute As A Button!

I  like to introduce you to  IZZYBELLA BOO - Cute As A Button.

Isn't  she  just adorable!

"Izzy"  or "Bella".. (She will answer to  either).... Is an adorable Boo Fairy that collects all buttons. So if you hear  buttons rattling in  your craft containers  or are missing buttons from  your  clothes.... Guess who has them..... Lil Izzybella Boo that's who.   Izzy  is the newest addition to my  Boo Family Digi Stamp Collection.  

Izzy is now available in my  shop for all your crafting needs.

The next  new stamp debuting tonight is  Wix- Hearts A Blaze!

Another  cutie I do  say  so  and perfect for  your  Valentine's Day Cards!  Wix is the keeper  of the moonlight.  It appears she is   already  for Valentine's  Day  by   hanging  heart  shaped lanterns  from the  moon.

Have a wonderful evening and happy crafting  with these two  cuties!
Hugs, Heather

PS...  If you adopt  Izzybella Boo.. make sure you have  plenty of  buttons on hand so  she may  craft with you.

Twinkle Boo and Stars

A  couple of   weeks or  so a  wonderful  fan of  mine  had   contacted me in  regards to  creating a  digi  for her  featuring  stars.   She  had  mentioned  that her  house  was   covered in  stars and  needed to  have a   digi  for a  special  project. 

So that night,  I began  sketching and  creating... and my original  Twinkle Boo was   born. 

Today...  I  am  sharing with you the   wonderful  project   Denise P.  has  created   which  features  her  amazing  holiday  star  lights and Twinkle Boo.

So   beautiful  Denise and thank you  for  having me  create  this  special   digi  for you:)

If you  would love to  see more of  Denise's  projects   please  visit  her  blog.

If you would like to create  with   my  precious  Twinkle Boo ... she is   available in the new section to my  Lacy Sunshine Shop.

Also  until  midnight tonight, Jan. 2nd. Lacy Sunshine is  having a   Flash Sale! All of my original Flower Pot Pretties are  50% off!  How  cool is that?

Have a beautiful day and happy crafting!

PS....  Be  sure to  check back her   later... I  have  some new  digis   to  debut:)
