Lollipop Flowers

Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli, lolli, lolli :)
I hope you know the song I'm singing or else that just looks ridiculous, hahaha! 

OK, so it is time for another flower! I have a few planned for the future but this one is one of the easiest and most usable because you can make it fairly thin for your layouts. I love that you just use the patterned paper that matches your project and viola!

To entice you to watch the video, here are some finished flowers that I recently made.

I guess it is pretty obvious how they are made but here is the video anyway!

Here is the finished pink one with a few others.
And then I added ribbon so they could be hung.

Here is a layout where I used half of the lollipop flower as an accent.
I also made a full lollipop to add to my title "Fun at the Fair!"
Did you notice? I used glimmer mist on the background sheet! 
Check out last weeks post to find out how to make it :)

Glimmer Mister

Calling all splatter painters! I mean glimmer misters! I mean paper crafters :)
Well, gone are the days of spending almost $10 on glimmer mist! 

Check out my tutorial on making your own. Super simple and extra cheap!. Love it!


This is a card made with a transparency.
I decided to cut the butterfly out like a little window to look through.
I used liquid glue which made my card buckle a little :(

It looks faded because of the lighting but in person it is better.
Isn't the splatter effect awesome!

Here are 2 other great example by a scrapbook artist I found at
