Hello Friends! This is my third post as guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. This week, I have a fun tag that I made using some more of the products from the September release! To create this tag, I used the Ranger #8 manila craft tags for the base. I adhered the 2 different papers from the Soulful Stitches 6x6 paper Collection to my tag base and sponged Tattered Rose distress ink along the edges plus I used my distress edger. I stamped a portion of the doily blessings stamp on the upper right portion of the tag. I sprinkled on white detail embossing powder and heat set. I added a small triangle of paper in the middle of my embossed doily. I die cut the doily and sponged the edges and added it to my tag. Using supplies from my stash, I created the tape measure ribbon bow... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today starts the 18th challenge over at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog. Can you believe that? I know time flies but this is ridiculous! This challenge is called Layer It!

(Ink, paint, embossing, and mixed media products do count as layers!) Drag out all of that hoarded paper or those embossing folders that are in the back of the drawer. Use those stamps, dies, and punches! Show us the layers! Our sponsors for this challenge are Lindy's Stamp Gang and Add A Little Dazzle! About Lindy’s Stamp Gang Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more! Add a Little Dazzle...

Hello Friends! Hope you had a great week! Now its time to enjoy the weekend. Maybe you will be crafting this weekend? I don't know if I will or not because it finally stopped raining. It rained for 8 days straight and now I can actually see the sun! Today I would like to share with you a Flower Mini Album that I created using a scrapbook kit from The Scrapbook Diaries. One of the things I love to do is see what other designers are creating by watching videos on YouTube. Well I stumbled across a new favorite blogger/designer, Gabrielle Pollaco, a couple of months ago. I love her style and she designed a beautiful scrapbooking layout kit for The Scrapbook Diaries. I purchased it and adapted it to make an 8x8" mini album for my daughter. One thing I have found is that purchasing a kit is a... Continue reading

Hello friends! It's my second post as a Guest Designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. I have been having so much fun creating my projects using their products! This week I have a more simple card using distress ink to highlight the wonderful Doily die. This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I used some base weight ivory cardstock for the base of this card. I cut some of the Soulful Stitches patterned paper to 4 x 5 1/4" and the I cut the ivory layer to 3 3/4 x 5". I die cut the doily from the same ivory cardstock. Using a sponge, I applied some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink onto this layer in a circle that was slightly larger than the doily. Then I adhered the doily over my inked circle. I cut the doily to fit onto this layer. I tied some seam binding around the... Continue reading

Yesterday was World Cardmaking Day! Did you get to participate in some of the challenges that were happening all over the internet? Or maybe you walked into your craft room to make something and almost screamed out loud because your desk was so messy? I actually did both! First I had to straighten up my desk and re-arrange my ribbon drawer. I tell you that I did actually scream out loud but not to loud because I didn't want to scare my family. I will show you what my ribbon drawer looked like AFTER I cleaned it....... After making my ribbon look all pretty, I got some of my Classic Sunflower Paper Collection from Heartfelt Creations and got busy making some cards! Here is what I started with...... This isn't something I purchase very often but I was lucky enough to find this packet of 8 - 5x7" Kraft cards... Continue reading

I have been exploring mixed media techniques lately....if you haven't noticed already.....and have had a great time doing it. This layout uses a bunch of supplies from Heartfelt Creations. My camera battery died while I was making this layout so I don't have a video but I do have tons of pictures to show you just how I made this. I love this color scheme....don't you? These papers are from the Posy Patch Paper Collection from Heartfelt Creations. I also used some DCWV 12 x 12 lilac cardstock for the back layer.
