Happy Mother's Day! And how did you spend your day? Mine was great. DH, son and daughter made brunch and the kids did not fight once! NOT ONCE! Couldn't of asked for a better day.  In honor of all the mom's I spent the day in my little sanctuary (craft room) and made these awesome "mums". You can buy the svg kit "3D Mums and Fall Flowers" from I had so much fun making them. I didn't add leaves to all of them but they look great! Thanks for coming by and taking a look. Have a great evening! Hopefully you are all being SPOILED!

Flowers here are: Brittany Mum; Spider Mum and Sunflower. Edges are all inked, petals curved, bent, whatever! I glued them together and put a pop dot here or there. Just have fun with them!

Flowers: Black Eyed Susan (could you guess this one? lol); Dublin Mom; Batini Mum and Lollipop Mum.

Mary from has a great tutorial on how to make these.

I finally did it! After looking at and admiring sooooo many word books, I decided to attempt making one of my own.  My nephew had a baby girl and so I made this for his new addition. I haven't put it together yet, not sure to use rings or invest in a bind-it-all. The things I could do with a bind-it-all! Any suggestions?

I used SU dp from their mini catalogue "sending love". I love how sparkly it is! and the colors, well.....they're just awesome. Some of the svg's I used were collected off of the many sites out there. The fairies are from "Flitting Fairies" kit and the flower is from the "3D flowers kit".  The butterflies are from SU, and I used my cuttlebug die cut for the little flowers. I embossed, inked, stickled and just had alot of fun making this! Thanks for dropping by and looking!
