Happy Spring!

Hallelujah I think spring might actually, finally, be here!! Today it was above 60 degrees, wonderfully sunny, and not windy. A really perfect day. I was so happy to be outside today with the dogs and the critters, just playing and baking in the sun.

I've picked up some new hobbies- crocheting for one.  I have a few small crocheted items in my Etsy shop. I'd love it if you'd take a look and tell me what you think of them!

I'm doing a craft show here in town on May 2nd. Hopefully it will go well and be a sign of good things to come, because I've been in a bit of a slump lately. Over the next month or so I anticipate having lots of crafty things to share with you.

But for now.....

Here's that rotten weenie, Sammy.
He's so darn cute, if not a brat!

I got a little overzealous in my gardening this year.
Started too early, so hopefully everything will make it.

Working on what I call "delightfully tacky" blocks to go around the veggie garden.

New Item in Etsy Shop

You've just got to see this sweet altered domino necklace. Made with vintage dictionary paper, resin, and more, it's sweet and adorable. Check it out in the shop! Just go to Etsy and search Aimee Fleck Art (or click on the mini shop at the right side of this page).

Bark if You Love Somebody

Today I want to share this freaking ADORABLE little album with ya! Genuinely Jane Studios creates some of the cutest things, I swear :) This book is 4x4" and has a dog bone cut out of the front cover.

Here's our fur kids
For this project I used the book from Genuinely Jane Studios, paper & stickers from Echo Park, Stickles, ribbon and trims, Miracle Tape and a stamp from Viva Las Vegastamps, and E600 glue. Wood veneer hearts from Studio Calico which were colored using Smooch Spritz, watercolor paints, and Stickles.

You're My Favorite....card using Globcraft goodies!

Yes, my yearning for springtime weather continues on.
I am really loving the new spring Enamel Gel colors and intend to play with them a LOT!
So.....wanna make a card?
Folded card base, patterned paper (this is Amy Tan paper), trims, paper flowers, bling, scissors, toothpick, small tag or ticket shape (with a sentiment on it, or stamp one on), pop dots, Enamel Powder Adhesive
Enamel Gels: White, Rose Pearl, Daffodil, Avocado
Enamel Powders: Aged Pink & Shamrock Dreams
What to do:
1. Cover the front of the card with patterned paper. Choose a second patterned paper to fit into the frame from one of the Piccolo sets that we are using.
2. Take the frame and coat it with Enamel Adhesive Fluid. Then coat with the Aged Pink powder and heat it up to melt the powder and activate the adhesive. It is soooo pretty!
3. Adhere the patterned paper to the frame back and then adhere to the card.
4. Use the E600 and a toothpick to add trims below the frame.
5. Add sentiment near top of frame using pop dots.

5. Choose a few flowers from each of the Piccolo sets and start giving them some color. Use the Shamrock Dreams and Avocado for the stems and the other colors for the flowers. Once they are all dry and set, start layering into the frame.

6. Adhere some paper flowers in the frame, then add the Piccolo flowers over top of them. Add a couple of flowers to the left edge of the trim, too. Any flower centers that are visible need some BLING in them, too!! :)
