MY Poor Little Neglected Blog Christmas Mantle Decor

Happy Holiday's and a Very Merry Christmas to Everyone!

My Newest creation is my Holiday mantle decor. I love the show Fixer Upper, so sad to see it go. So I took my theme of Snow, winter Snowmen and bull on that for starters. I had the idea in my head much like I do when I create a card. I just needed to find all the pieces to make it happen.






Since I am a self proclaimed selfie queen I couldn't resist in my new jacket (yes it's green, :) My favorite color) I just can't control my selfie... lol
 The hardest part was traveling to 4 different Michael's, Target, TJ Max to find each element. It's never all in one place.
I started with the tin snowman that was a gift from my friend Stacey 2 years ago. The candlestick I also had.  Everything else is new! Carefully laying down the branches , placing my snowflake and pillar On the right. I then tied snowflakes to the frame and set it in place. The skates are from Target. Not pictured is my word cube. You can rotate it to change each day.
 The stockings are hung with those removable scotch hooks that don't damage your house. Stockings from Michaels at 70 % off Steal. They are a burlap with silvery shimmer.
This Very large wooden wall decor snowflake is from Pier 1. It was the priciest item, but I did manage to get it at 30% off. I purchased the greenery and wooden frosted branches, Wood Frame Tiny green bottlebrush tree and the mini lights that are battery operated. from Michael's as well.

Happy Holiday's from my Family to yours! Thank you for your continued support. I have posted quite a few things to my Instagram account if you'd like to follow me there my name is lezlyesdesigns.

Turtley Awesome! Fun Stamper's Journey

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! You are in for a treat! I created this lovely Turtle card using products from Fun Stamper's Journey!



I used my Gelli Press to create that yummy background with the True Color Fusion Inks and an acrylic block. Super Easy & SO much fun to play with this tool that Richard has brought into the FSJ Line.



I stamped my Turtles in the Black Licorice Ink and colored with my copic markers. It was fun to color them, but I was being particular so it took a bit. Once I had them colored I knew I wanted to use some journey twine behind to incorporate black. Then I added sequins a wood starfish and the awesome sentiment.

I posted this to Instagram and forgot to get it on my blog.. If you care to follow my creations on Instagram my handle is

I white embossed the flowers and leaves from the scribbles and leaves set  all around my die cut watercolor panel. Then I spritzed it with water an went for it. I used a product called color Burt. It is a concentrated microfine watercolor powder.I used the basic color pack #1 Die cut my sentiment and flag for supporting message. Then mounted all the panels.

Happy Thoughts Poppystamps



IMG_3204
Hello Poppystamps fans. Lezlye , here today with a card using the new stitched Oka Trio Die and and older sentiment die Sending and Sending Scribbles stamp set.

I cut a strip of green cardstock using the border die. This is a great way to use up scraps of yardstick and add a decorative element to your designs.

 Die cutting the sentiment in black makes for a really bold striking sentiment. I plan to make a whole collection of these cards with all of my scraps.I jus want to say what a pleasure it has been to have been on this team since the beginning. I have truly enjoyed designing with these fabulous dies. I thank  The Memory Box, Poppystamps and Birch Press Design Companies, my fellow design team members. I will still be creating, but mostly for fun for a while. I will post here.  I will have at least one more post for Poppystamps.
