Art Journals and Image Transfers!


It's a rainy day here in South Western Ontario!!!  A perfect day to stay inside and craft!  Kim & I had our monthly Art Journalling class last Friday night and we experimented with image transfers again.  It can be a bit of a frustrating technique but oh so worth it when it works!! We have figured out that having a more substantial background is a good idea....for instance making sure your paper has been prepped with gesso first, or in the image above I had a base of Metallic Distress Stain down before I tried the transfer. Paper alone gets too wet and will deteriorate before the transfer is complete.  Our next class will be on Friday, May 16, from 6pm - 8pm.  Hope to see you then!!

And just a reminder that NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY is this coming Saturday and we are celebrating it from 10am - 2pm!!! Join us for FREE make n takes, raffles....and you have an opportunity to win a $75.00 gift card to our store!! For more details click here!!!

Peaceful Butterfly Wings

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you a card I made using the die, Peaceful Butterfly Wings. At first I had some difficulties in wrapping my head around this one. The butterflies do not pop out completely. The wings only pop up. I inked the edges of the wings to help them stand out. There are endless possibilities with this one.




 Hope to see you next Saturday at our free National Scrap Booking Event. Check out the details here.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Kim

Movie Night


Hello! One day left till Friday! I took the day off work  on Monday.  It felt so nice to stay home with the family. I also had some scrap time for myself. This project actually started off in making kits for the SGD retreat (29 days away), and turned into this double page layout. I did not realize how much Christmas paper I had. So I decided to see what I could create with my Christmas paper that did not look like a winter theme. It was also fun to play along with Let's Get Sketchy. Details about the sketches can be found here





We love family movie nights. I used a mixture of Simple Stories and Fancy Pants paper. I cut all hints of Christmas from the papers. 


On each side of the page I included a little journaling pocket. 
I also had the chance to use my new Tim Holtz hashtag stamp.






Stars and film strip worked well with my title theme. I scored an amazing star punch from the SGD garage sale. Who am I kidding?! I love stars. 


 Thank you for stopping by. How do you prepare for a crop or a retreat? I would love to know. For myself I love to buy or prep kits. Take advantage of our Diva's amazing kits found here

Blossom

Happy Thursday. This past weekend I decided to try and get ahead of my project life and create the following week's page.  With the new Imaginisce Welcome Spring line and a little help from Creative Scrappers Sketch I created this double page layout. I absolutely love journaling cards, with this line. I love the mix of darker and light spring colors. For my page I loved the navy and forest green. Well I have to cut today's post short as Sheila is enabling my love of paper with a 40% sale!

Have a great Easter Weekend.

Tim Holtz Distress Paints- do you need them? Of course!!!


I have started collecting (no surprise) the Tim Holtz Distress Paints. 
I have a love affair with paint going back to the first time a paint brush was put in my hand. It was my favourite time at school, at home…anytime I could paint. Except walls. I don't enjoy that. 

These paints have a gorgeous creamy texture that reacts with water in a very cool way. And they can be used in conjunction with the other distress products. Very cool. 

Thank you Lord Tim of Holtz for adding more to my list of must haves….
now where is my art journal so I can get crackin'!

Happy Crafting, Andrea

Clean and simple thinking of you!


Happy Friday!! Time flies when you are having fun......so many things I wanna do and try out with so little time....sometimes it's so simple......like this card. Using the negative of the Memory Box die on an oval and  paired up with a sentiment and designer paper. Of course, the Viva pearls have to be added, lol!
You can do this technique with a lot of other dies too.

Week 10 PL

Good morning, Saturday on the blog, Andrea posted a great video for project life. Today I am sharing my own adventures of Project Life. I have always kept a journal of sorts for the kids of their moments. When I started scrapbooking it was to record those moments. Then scrapbooking became so much more than just documenting. The more my passion grew for the creative aspects, the less documenting I did. Project life lets me tell that story. 

I purchased the Midnight Collection Core Kit.

I picked this kit for the black, grey, white and gold colors. My thought was that I could pre-slot my cards and make it a faster project in my album. I had also purchased the corner rounder punch and the Square Corner 3x4 Picture Punch. These two tools are real time savers!

During the week I keep a little journal. Then would  fill out the journal cards and decide on my photo's. I do love the uniformity of the kit, but maybe the scrapper in me wanted to add a little color.  

So I went through my sticker sheets and paper scraps and added some color. 


I am thrilled with how this week turned out. It really does represent me and my little family. 

More pictures can be found on my blog here

How do you work with Project Life? I would love to know. Have a great week.

Embossing Paste and Home Decor

Good Morning Everyone,

Wanted to share with you one of my projects that I did with the Dreamweaver Embossing Paste. I use the embossing paste in my art journal to give another dimension to my page but this time I used in on a wooden Kleenex box. I got the idea from Eileen. I like the black and white but you can base coat in any colour to fit your room decor. I got the wooden Kleenex box from Michaels.




Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Keep Calm and Try not to Laugh



Happy Thursday SGD Fans! Today I am sharing a layout I created for my upcoming April 12th class. 



I absolutely love the "Keep Calm and Try not to Laugh" saying on this journaling card. It is perfectly suited for my son! He is one crazy fun and loving little man. The ticket sheet was perfect for my border across this double layout. Kits will be available. You can't go wrong for the young adventurer in your life. More than a few worked for my little ones :) 






I am loving my stencils and my background stamps. Sheila must have realized my new passion as she put on an amazing sale on all Memory Box Stencils. For this layout I used Rings and Puddles Stencil with a little Dreamweaver embossing paste. 







Well, one day closer to the weekend. Have a great day!
