Happy Mother's Day Frame

Howdy y'all! 

Well Mother's Day is fast approaching! So your girl Mary Ellen from Creative Time With ME is here to help y'all out! I have a wonderful way to decorate a picture frame using The Robin's Nest Dew Drops!

  1. I started out by grabbing a raw wood picture frame.
  2. Next I brought out some Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Ground Espresso
  3.  After placing the paint in my palette. I used a foam brush to apply it to the frame.
  4. When the paint was dry I brought out The Robin's Nest Dew Drops and some Bearly Art Craft Glue.
  5. I then proceeded to glue down one of the small green Dew Drops and 7 red tear drop shaped Dew Drops.
  6. This process continued until all the flowers were on the frame.
  7. Then I brought the green Dew Drops back in and using the small circular and tear drop shaped Dew Drops. I created the look of leaves and  stems for the flowers. 
  8. Next in the top and bottom center of the frame I brought out the red heart Dew Drops and gold large circular Dew Drops.
  9. And I proceeded to glue them onto the middle top and bottom portions of the frame.
  10. Once that was all done and dry. I was able to place a picture inside for my mom. 
  11. Now it is ready to be a Mother's Day present.

Getting ready for Easter

Howdy y'all!

Mary Ellen here from Creative Time With ME! We're going to turn a cereal box into an Easter basket!

I have had a fantastic time being on the Dies R Us Design Team! Did you know that right now they're hosting a Design Team call! Check it out HERE!

I started out by cutting the pattern paper and cereal box to the size of the die! Then I used Scrapbook Adhesives 12 by 12 Adhesive Sheets  on both sides of the cereal box (chipboard)! Following that I placed the pattern paper on the chipboard! After that I used my die cutting machine to cut out the pieces to create the basket! Next I brought out the Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue  and began to use it on the die cut pieces to create the card!


Paper: Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Starlight
Accessories: Stampin' Up! Berry Basket Bigz L Die, Cereal Box

The process video for this card!

For this slimline card, I started out with a flower stencil and some Distress ink. Then I used my stamping platform to put some sentiments on my card. At this point I attached the card front to the base. To complete the card I used Bearly Art glue and attached some Dew Drops.
