Blue Jay in the snow Christmas card by Cherry Nelson






Hello my fellow Reneabouquet's fans!  Are you ready for the holidays?  I am getting there bit by bit.  I start early on greeting cards so that I am not rushed.  I love this blue jay...such a beautiful contrast with white and black. 

 



I think more than ever, handmade cards and gifts from the heart are so important.  With loved ones all being separated by Covid...a little bit of you sent to your family goes a long way. 


 

  I surrounded my blue jay with loads of pretty florals...some from the store and some created by me with Foamirian.   I also added pretty berries and crystals, along with laces and loads of ribbons.  





 I added some snowflakes painted with blue oil pastels that matched the blue jar perfectly and was done.  I hope you enjoy!  xoxo, Cherry

A Victorian Styled Memory Album by Jenn DuBell

 Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing a Victorian styled memory album I have created using lots of beautiful products from Reneabouquets!


This is a 5 1/2 X 7 1/2" album made with medium weight chipboard. It contains 12 pages, one with a 12 page waterfall for photos, a journaling page, and several pockets to hold mementos. There are many beautiful interactive elements within my album as well.
I have used the Graphic 45 "A Ladies Diary" collection along with the following products available at Reneabouquets.com:

Beautiful Board Medium Divine Frame

Printed Beautiful Board Small Tea With Me Laser Cut Chipboard

Beautiful Board Ivy Vines Tuck It In Laser Cut Chipboard

Phantasy Premium Paper Glitter Glass Butterflies

Itty Bitty Blossoms and Leaves Seafoam Mulberry Paper Flowers

Soft Peach Roses and Leaves Mulberry Paper Flower Set

Pink Lemonade Curly Roses Mulberry Paper Flowers

Seafoam Roses and Leaves Mulberry Paper Flowers

Black tear Drop Lace 1.5 Inch Wide

The Ivy Vine tuck ins were embossed using Lindy's embossing powder in "Desert Moon Turquoise".

Reneabouquets Beautiful Board is very sturdy and takes well to being painted, embossed, stained, and many other treatments. It is also beautiful left in the raw with just a bit of ink edging as seen on the frame of my album.

Below is a page by page slideshow of the inside.

Winter Wonderland Projects / Design Team Projects with Reneabouquets

Hi Crafters,
Raquel here! Today I am sharing this collection of projects made with adorable items from Reneabouquets, my personal collection of Winter Wonderland papers, and several dies from my stash. In this group of items, there is also and adorable Doctor’s Bag which I’ve made with a digital file from Nicole Silhouette. 
Let’s begin looking a these goodies!


First, I’ve made this adorable Christmas themed tag. More whimsical than anything, it shows an image from Stampingbella that I’ve colored and layered among Beautiful board Christmas Cookies that appear to be sugar coated, and adorable shiny tag, and a pink tulle ruffle do add a bit of texture.




I began this tag by cutting out layers of my Winter Wonderland blue papers, then also cut out the stamped image and popped it on top adding a thick layer of foam between it and the background. To add more color, I cut a pink glitter card with a scalloped edge, then added the adorable beautiful board pieces from Reneabouquets. These were heat embossed for a sugary finish.



You can also see that I added stitching, pink and white snowflakes, small gems, and an adorable tag sentiment from Tonic Studios that I cut from my collection, then laminated with sequins and angel hair. The sentiment reads: “Winter Wishes and Snowflake kisses.”



The next item that I made was this small notebook. I used papers from my Winter Wonderland Pink design. This adorable paper has snowflakes in pinks and blues, with heart motifs and distressed edges. On the cover I also added daisy chain lace, an adorable tiny snowman, a piece of butterfly lace, and the word Sparkle, as well as another piece of pink tulle; all from Reneabouquets.



Below is also a set of 3x3  notecards. This playful little set is adorned with little images from Stampingbella atop little white doilies. I also used my paper collection here, by first stitching the edges in a zig-zag stitch. I then added small poinsettias layered with vellum and lace flowers, and layered Peach Wide Floral lace from Reneabouquets for an elegant finish. The small banners aptly read: Christmas Cheer.

I share more detail on these on my YouTube channel


Below is another project. This time, it’s a 3D Doctor’s Bag made with a digital file from Nicole Silhouette and my digital papers. I started by stitching along the edges, then decorated it with the gorgeous trim from Reneabouquets. I also added shabby Snowflakes that I heat embossed, and another printed beautiful board piece for a bit of whimsy.


Here is a closer look at the Garden Bouquet lace. It is one of my favorites to use on my projects! I also added little gems to the centers of the snowflakes in the paper pattern for even more shine...


Here is a look at the other side, which I adorned with a mulberry Rose from Reneabouquets nestled with a delicate bow as well as intricate leaves, all dusted in Gaudy Glitter glass, and finished with a precious moment glitter glass printed butterfly.


Lastly, I used more glitter glass to add some shine to the bag toppers you see pictured below. These were fun and easy to make, and I’ve topped them all with Beautiful Beads Mermaids Tail Iridescent Pearls. These were the perfect hue to finish off my snowflake embellishments.


I hope that you have enjoyed my projects. Be sure to follow my links for each item noted, including November’s coupon code for Reneabouquets and visit my Etsy store to get your hands on this adorable paper! I have truly enjoyed working with Reneabouquets items this year, and as always, I hope that you can 

Be inspired, Be Blessed!

Christmas Countdown Memorydex by Toni

Hi everyone, it's almost that time for us to countdown to Christmas, and here is a fun and easy way to create a memorydex file to help you out. 

I started off with a small wooden tray that I purchased at the Dollar store and painted it white. Then I cut dowels (purchased also at the Dollar Store) and put them in place to hold the memorydex cards. Painted it all white and then began to decorate the box. 

I covered the sides and inside with my buffalo check cardstock and then decorated the front using the following Reneabouquets items.  Beautiful Board Medium April In Paris Adornment PatternChristmas Red Mulberry PoinsettiasMini Black Mulberry Paper Roses and Leaves SetPrinted Beautiful Board Tiny Christmas Belle Laser Cut Chipboard. I added the small bottle brush tree and covered it with .5 Ounce Gawdie Girl Diamond Chunky German Glitter Glass


I then diecut 25 memorydex cards and proceeded to decorate each one using many Christmas items from the Reneabouquet store. There is a complete list below with all the products and their links for your convenience. Below is also a process video so you can watch how I created the tray to hold the memorydex cards.... wishing you a Christmas filled with sparkle and joy !

 Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Reneabouquets. Go and see all the fun treasures there!


Photo credit:Alice Alinari, at Unsplash 





To make this page I applied clear gesso to 49 And Market paper.

  I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. Below that is a watercolor paper mat, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most of the paper from the top of the cardboard, and painted it with gesso.

I put the layers with the photo onto the page.

 I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste with a stencil and an old credit card. I picked out Beautiful Board(BB), and sponged on gesso. I arranged the flowers around the page, and added the BB. I layered in all the fussy cut pieces, and then the beads. I added paint, more beads, and layers of more paint.













I painted the lavender flower at the left of the photo with Iris My Case, a Shimmerz Paint.When I do these pages,I take photos to see if the composition is ok. I needed a lot more color around the page to balance out the photo, so I painted the flower, and added more of that color, and also alcohol inks, and Dylusions, to try and balance the strong colors of the photo.


To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter, glass beads, pearls,rhinestones,swarovski crystals,sequins,pressed flowers,bark,iridescent wrapping paper,sisal, shells,metal from Reneabouquets,and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets and Prima,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things, and to put the cardboard layers together.I used  fussy cut images from 49 And Market, and Graphic 45 papers. I flicked on violet Jaquard mica powder as a last step.

 Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
