Papertrey Ink Celebrating The Past, 2010

Celebrating along with Papertrey Ink, using one of the stamp sets they have highlighted for their anniversary celebration, mYeat Of Flowers, Sweet Pea.'  For this card, I made a top folding card, added a piece of wisteria chicken scratch patterned paper to the side.  I adhered the die cut sweet pea flowers, which were colored with copic markers.  Before I adhered the flowers I stamped and embossed an image from the 'Shine' stamp set for a little added texture and interest.  The sentiment 'You've Been so sweet' is also from the stamp set, which I stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with Ranger super fine embossing powder, mounted on some foam adhesive to get a bit of dimension.  I then added some Nuvo Crystal drops in sweet lilac.  I finished the inside of the card off with a 'a THANK YOU' sentiment from Altenew stamps, adhered to a piece of the same wisteria gingham chicken scratch paper.
It's been fun revisiting these stamp sets, thank you Papertrey Ink!

Papertrey Ink Celebrating The Past 2011

I had just pulled out my 'Tremendous Treats, Valentine' stamp & die set when PTI's post came out 'Celebrating 2011.'  One of the five stamp sets they were focusing on happened to be this set.  I had pulled out this Valentine set to make these cute little treat sacks using Lawn Fawn's treat bag, and the Tremendous Treats stamp & die set...
I die cut and put the sacks together using some fun Valentine patterned papers (I tho k they are Echo Park & Maggie Holmes).  I then die cut  four tags in Kraft, using Avery Elle Postage Stamp die set, and topped with the PTI tremendous treats dies, that I stamped and colored with copic markers.  I think the four little Grands will like these little bags as much as the candy & little treats I am to stuff  inside!πŸ˜‰
Another quick card using PTI's 'Simply Spring stamp and die set:

I love coloring these cute little bunnies soft shades of almost pink copic markers.  I did some sponging on the background with distress ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrapbooking Process Video Featuring Felicity Jane

Hello everyone, another video featuring Felicity Jane *(I think this is mainly the February kit).  Also, another snowy day here in Central Oregon, it has been snowing most of the day, just days after our roads because completely clear (still have mounds of snow that  was scraped :).

Back to the video, I used mostly all Felicity Jane papers and cut-a parts with the exception of stickers from a Crate Paper sheet by Maggie Holmes Bloom collection.  I must mention, I didn't realize these stickers were so thin...they were fine when placed flat on my paper, but it they were overlapped on layered paper, you could see the layers of papers underneath.  Had I known, I would have removed the sticker (the deer, in particular, and put foam underneath it, just a little FYI.  I used Distress Inks, Candied Apples & Fired Brick to ink the center of the 2x3 journaling card from the kit, which I stamped with the '1,2 3' stamp from Papertrey Ink Moments Inked   Posted stamp set.  I'm still not a fan of having to fussy cut the 'cut-apart' sheet, wish they were diecut stickers :(. I am really ready for some color changes as well, in this kit....I feel like we've had the same color palette for the last few months......sorry, don't mean to be a downer....I do love the kits, just a few observations on my part.  I HAVE loved every single stamp set!!!!

AT least this time I remembered to do a voice-over....geesh, I can't believe I forgot that last time!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the video!

Scrapbooking Layout Process With A BIG WOOPS

Hello all, here today to share a Scrapbooking layout process...which had several takes to edit, etc......when completed, I uploaded it to YouTube....only to think to myself, ' I don't remember doing a voice-over,' which I didnt'....my phone was out of memory at that point...so I just let it go......  I almost deleted it, then I thought, 'if someone can gain a teeny tip for their Scrapbooking skills, so be it....so here it is....I used so many old papers, along with the newer Felicity Jane supplies....and some Papertrey Ink stamps and dies......I really can't link to the old supplies....I CAN say, it is SO worth hanging on to your old papers (after all, everything comes back around, I've seen it in the Scrapbooking world 3X :).....I was able to marriage a ver new Felicity Jane kit...Jan. I believe (I tend to put them together..)...along with some very old papers , some old rubons (lily bee, does anyone remember that brand?) and some vintage bookplate, I love the result and how it all coordinates.  I also added some new Nuvo drops!  The flag banner at the top, I hand cut.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Felicity Jane Scrapbook Layout Video

Hello there!  Hope you are all doing well a bs under less snow than we are still experiencing!  The one plus about adverse weather conditions is thatnit allows for more crafting timeπŸ‘πŸ»

Now here is the video and some still shots of the video.  This is my sweet granddaughter, Caprice and grand-nephew, Teddy.  They are so darn cute together!

All the papers I used for this layout are from the January Felicity Jane kit, with the exception of the black Bazzill cardstock.  The enamel dots were a combination of My Mind's Eye and  Simple Stories, and the stickers used were from a Crate Paper sticker sheet called 'Hello Love.'  Now, here are some still shots and up close photos of the layout.

Birthday Card. Lawn Fawn & Process Video


Hello all!!  Still buried in snow here, what better weather to craft in, though, right?   Here today with a card and a process video.  This card is a 1st Birthday card for my grandson's 1st birthday!!!  The card is made using Lawn Fawn 'Party Animals' stamp set, with a Mama Elephant die cut border, and backed with some Watercoloring on watercolor paper, using Kuretake watercolors.  The inside of the card is also decorated so stay tuned for some still shots at the end of the vide.  Also, not included in the video are the shots after I applied Wink of Stella, clear, to the balloons and the candle wick.  I'm a bit rusty on the video voice-over, so please pardon :)
Hope you all enjoy, please give a thumbs up if you do, and subscribe to my channel.  Thanks so much!

Christmas Tags Recap


Hello everyone, hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas, and are starting the new year off with a bang!  We've been pretty much snowed in for the last couple of weeks with about 18-20" of snow  (it's hard to be very accurate, because it just kind of keeps dumping every couple of days) and freezing temps. 

As always, I made all my Christmas tags using my favorite holiday stamps, embellishments and ribbons, I made some into tiny little shakers, and that was fun!  Here is a sampling of some, then some close ups of a few:

Also wanted to share the gorgeous table my oldest son, Griffin, made foer my craft room...it fits perfectly, and is great for projects you want to work on while standing.

Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back to share a few cards and scrapbook layouts I've made lately!
