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 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!

Felicity Jane Scrapbooking Process Video

Hello, and welcome back to my blog!  After a long summer filled with events, gardening, and general business....I'm hoping to get back to blogging on more of a regular basis.

Today I have a process video to share with you, featuring Felicity Jane July kit (I 'think' it is the July kit. I have been obsessed with these kits the last few months, and finally bit the bullet and did a subscription.  And, if I were to be honest, there are things that I love and don't love about the kit.....LOVE the stamps, they're great for Scrapbooking, Cardmaking...and tag making.  The images on the 'cut-apart' sheets are very cute and useful....however, I'm not a fan of having to fussy cut them out....I wish they were either regular stickers or die cuts....I love the acetate images, as well as the flair, I wish the flair weren't always just black & white....  With all that being said, I AM a fan, just wishing for a few improvements.

And here is the project I created with the kit - 
So, mostly for this kit, I used the July Felicity Jane kit, along with some of the cut files from the October kit (the green scallop, and 'family' circle.  The seam binding is from an etsy shop, the letter stickers are an old Scenic Route sticker set, and the feather is one shed from one our Guinneas, here on the farm (I collect them as they shed them :).  Oh, and I can't forget the Nuvo Crystal drops...I am loving these, along with the glitter drops, they are easy, dry fast, and make great enamel dots and add a lot of dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by, will hopefully get a new post up soon!

Scrapbook Process Video 'Disgruntled Flower Girls'

Hi there, here with the first few pics from our son's wedding.  This photo features out two granddaughters, who were flower girls, Evie and Capri.  This picture cracks me up...the girls with their little sour puss faces...they were upset because they had to get off the dance floor for the newlyweds first dance :(

I matted the photo on solid white cardstock, mulberry paper, embossed cardstock text print and more layered mulberry.  I added some gold touches with metal photo corners and a small gold frame.  The title is mounted on two layered bookmark dies by Papertrey Ink, which is layered on top of mulberry and a strip of washi tape.  The heart accent by the photo is by Crate Paper, it is  watercolor paper, which is embossed to show the design through watercolor.  The gold foil arrow and dots and acetate clock are by Heidi Swapp, white metal words are making memories.

Scrapbooking Process Video "Homemade Pesto"

Hello there, back after a little hiatus,  taken to get ready for our youngest son's wedding which was at our house in the yard (it turned out beautiful)!

Today I have a video to share, a page made with a photo of my homemade pesto.  I used wonderfully textured Carta Bella patterned paper from 'Mix It Up.'  You will see, I also used some ephemera from a Becky Higgins Project Life set (which I ended up shuffling around quite a bit).  Pardon my jumbling of words at the end when I was trying to say 'you can find me at :). I totally got tongue-tied!!

#SSSWCHALLENGE..... Here With A Process Video & Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

So, the challenge this week was 'flowers, Prima flowers if you had them, which I did..  So I started out with a visual for myself (first photo), just laying the photos and floral clusters down as is.... (obviously, I would have to trim the floral wire stamens off and rearrange, I didn't show this in the video because it took a LONG time...

I do love the way the layout turned features my two favorite granddaughters, Evie and Capri.....who are particularly enamored with my reader's the first thing they reach for when they get to our house.   I used an older Basic Grey solid background paper, layered with patterned prints from Crate Paper, and an embossed solid using a Provo Craft embossing folder.  THe florals, are, of course, by Prima, I cut the wire stems and adhered them individually with a hot glue gun.  The scalloped solid cardstock trim has been cut with a Martha Stewart edger.  The sticker phrase bubbles and butterfly  are from 'photo play paper.'  The number 2 is a leftover from a set my husband used to add the address numbers to our house, also added, a few sprinkles of sequins, mostly Darice, some Make It Market from Papertrey Ink.  The 'Quoted' block is from Papertrey Ink from their Monthly Moments' collection.

Thank you for visiting and watching the video....if you enjoyed, please give a thumbs up! If you have any questions, please ask in the comments.

Scrapbooking Process Video, 'Citizen Cope'

HI there, here today with another scrapbook process video, a layout made from a photo of Citizen Cope at a concert my daughter and son-in-law took me to for my birthday (yes, my choice, Citizen Cope was on my playlist long before it was on theirs :).

I chose basically one accent color of turquoise along with black for the background and few touches of lime green here and there.  The title alpha was created using Quickutz Studio Classic Alpha, and the subtitle 'to me' using Quickkutz, 'moonlight.'  The turquoise chevron paper is by Carta Bella, the black star patterned paper by Papertrey Ink, unfortunaltely, I took the branding strip off the bookprint paper before I could jot down the name.  The green swirl rub-on is by Basic Grey from a long-ago released collection of 'Olio.'  There is one Becky Higgins project life card with the date, the other rectangles were die cut from lawn fawn stitched rectangles.  I finished off the project with a few stamps from Heidi Swapp and Technique Tuesday, along with some crystal stars.
