I recently received a goodie box from Xyron which included the Mega Runner, X150 Sticker Maker, along with refills. This Xyron Bundle is an awesome deal, and....the items are sparkly blue! I LOVE them! The adhesive on the Mega Runner is AMAZING and really sticky! I used it to put all my card layers together. 

 I got the following clever idea from my friend Mitsyana. If you have any enamel dots or sequins or other little things that need some adhesive on the back, just pop them onto your Mega Runner so they pick up some of the sticky dots!

 The sticker maker is perfect for those little die-cut pieces, scripty word dies, and IAR leaves. I pulled the wire stems off the mini leaves and ran them through the sticker maker. 

I added gorgeous flowers from I Am Roses to finish off the card. They really add a dramatic statement to any project! I used R43 roses, white cherry blossoms, small yellow and pink flowers, and tiny leaves.

 Remember, you have until APRIL 8th to link up your project to the current I Am Roses Challenge. Be sure to use a minimum of 3 I Am Roses products on your card to qualify for a prize. I can't wait to see what you make!

Smile Big

Hey, Friends!! Design Team Member Mitsyana here and I'm back on the I AM Roses Blog to share with you a sweet card to give BIG SMILES to whoever receives it.

Winter is gone and here in Mid-Texas, we are starting to see the local wildflowers starting to take bloom. I live in a rural area, far from the city, so when the flowers bloom we have rolling hills and fields full of flowers just painting the countryside. It's absolutely beautiful! Sometimes I want to share that beauty with friends but sadly fresh flowers have a tendency to wilt and die. Thankfully I Am Roses flowers never do! 

So today, I'm sending out some 'mailable' springtime cheer. With recent events looking a bit grim I think that the world could use a whole lot more sprinkled here and there.

Today, I'm using IAR's 

One of the reasons I love I Am Roses flowers so much is the amazing detail that goes into each flower. The colors, the dimension, the texture, and meticulous detail is absolutely stunning!! 

Take a closer look at these below...

The quality of these flowers never ceases to amaze me. And it is that attention to detail that has me completely addicted and wanting more.

They make my card making so effortless and turn my simple cards into stunning works of art!!

These gardenias and curly flowers are absolutely GORGEOUS!! If these don't bring a smile to your face I don't know what will!

I hope you love these paper beauties as much as I do and are inspired to sprinkle happiness and share a smile or two!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, Spring!

Hello, dear friends!

Let's talk about spring again) I adore this season with its bright colors, the aroma of delicate flowers and warm breeze. It inspires much. Every year after a long winter we look forward to this miracle! And our scrapbooking gets filled with the new meaning and romantic mood...
Today I want to show you my new decorative panel with an embroidered bird - a messenger of spring. The embroidery pattern was taken from the magazine Cross Stitcher Magazine - June 2016 305.

Bright Spring with Alexandra Vologdina

Hello everyone! 
I want to show you the spring card that has become a kind of experiment with bright color accents. I rarely use red color in my projects, especially in flower cards. Red + white + green colours became the perfect trio in this card!
I made this white window by myself. Firstly I painted it on watercolor paper,then cut out and covered with embossing powder. Lush elegant floral composition decorated the card and my favorite I Am Roses official flowers helped me much.
