Coneflowers & Bees with a Smile

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is my card for this up coming Wonderful Wednesday. I stamped the Cornflowers and Bees image from Impression Obsession with Versa Mark on  a yellow colour designer paper. I used white embossing powder to emboss the image. The Smile die is from Lawn Fawn, which I cut out  from the sticky back white craft foam. I then rubbed gold foil over the smile. Glued the smile down and added some ribbon.



Hope to see you this Wednesday. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

"July" Calendar Class

Good morning, everyone. Today, I wanted to show you the layout that we will be doing on July 24 for the July Calendar Class. I used the Photo Play collection "Summer Daydreams". In the class, we will be using the Misti to stamp on the Journal Card and colouring with some Wink of Stella pens. We will be stamping with a blue to mint Ombré ink and creating embellishments using some Project Life Cards.

Also remember that we have several lines of Photo Play (Like a Girl, Family Ties, and This Guy). I love them all.

Flower with a butterfly stamp


Happy Friday! Today's blog post title is confusing, isn't it? I  could not come up with a more creative way of saying it, lol. This week I had some  time to play  and this was the result. As I am taking an online card class with ALTENEW, one of the things I learned this week was to look at your stamps differently and add your own accent to it.....Especially your solid stamps, adding some lines with a fine tip black marker and inking it up partially and stamping off. The flowers on this card are actually made from a (half) butterfly stamp from the set Painted Butterflies from Altenew, if you look hard you might still "see" it...I asked Sheila she can bring this set to the store and she is!! So if you want a set, please ask her to order it for you!
This was a lot of fun to create!!! Love learning new things, trying out new things that I could have never come up with. I added some shine to it with the wink of Stella pen and added the dots and black pearls.
                           Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

Memory Box and Avery Elle Dies!!

 Happy Thursday everyone!!  Today I am showing you three "Judy" cards that were created with the same two dies...one from Memory Box and one new Avery Elle!! 
 
 http://www.scrappingreatdeals.com/Memory-Box-Stem-Triptych-Die-POP-1524-Floral.html
 

Here are the three cards, each with a different sentiment from the Avery Elle set and a different method of using the Memory Box Die.  Judy also used Mirri Board and White Fun Foam on the cards.  We love when Judy shows us the versatility of dies...so many options!!

My favourite crafty hobby is making mini albums for the hundreds of photos I take. I also like to make interactive cards for special occasions.

I love scrapbooking! Its my time out! I make cards but really enjoy doing page layouts. When people see my space they say I have to much stuff but you never know when you want that special item! Sometimes I can't turn my thoughts off and have been known to complete a page in the middle of the night! I love flowers! I love shopping for scrapbook items! I see everything and think how can I apply that to a card or a layout. It is my passion and pass it on to who will listen or will create with me! Faye

"All Star" Kit

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone enjoyed some family time this weekend to celebrate Father's Day.

Today, I wanted to show you a kit that I created which I called "All Star". It is a masculine layout using Carta Bella's Collection "Work Hard Play Hard". I thought that you could use this kit for a husband, son, father, etc. Included in the kit, you get a full page of Sport Labels which you can fussy cut according to the subject(s) of your layout. If you have a loved one who is into baseball and hockey, there are several ticket stubs and ephemera to use. If instead, your loved one is into racing and soccer, there are several elements for those sports. So you can choose what will apply to your layout and cut out what you need with still lots left over for another layout.

I used this die from Kaiser Craft and cut it in half for each page and added some metal hearts from Prima.


This is the layout:


Remember to check our blog and Facebook page for upcoming classes as well as TT and WW and Scrappin Monday which will take place next Monday.

Blue Skies in Paradise!

One question we often hear is, "how do I embellish my layouts" ... Well, I have come up with a class to teach you the art of "embellish-clustering" without losing the focus of your beautiful photographs.  We will also be working with the amazing new Stickable Stencils by BoBunny!  I am telling you, if you have not tired these yet, you are not sleeping at night!!  They are amazing!!  This class is for a one-page 12x12 layout and will include a variety of florals, wooden shapes, bling and sequins.  Because of the large variety of materials, every layout (kit) may vary slightly.  

Students are asked to bring a their basic tool kit including:  paper trimmer, scissors, adhesives (including pop-ups). You will also need Tumbled Glass Distress Ink by Tim Holtz and a Distressing Ink Tool.   If you have one, you may also wish to bring a Craft Mat to class with you. You can bring 3 photos to class with you, or add them afterwards.  Each student will receive a 15% in-store discount during the workshop.

Unable to attend ... Kits for this class also available!   If you are unable to attend, class kits will be available after the class date of June 21st.  For kits, I will pre-stencil your paper for you (doily and birds).  Please note that embellishments may vary as there are so many coloured flowers, etc.   Everything will, however, co-ordinate beautifully :)    

Tuesday, June 21:  11am - 12:30   (Make the day of it, and join us for Technique Tuesday at 1pm!)

"Believe" Kit

Good morning, everyone. Today, I wanted to share with you a kit that I created for SGD using the Simple Stories Collection "Simple Sets Heart". The purpose of this kit is to honour a loved one who has passed on. I love the colours of this collection although the photo doesn't give a good representation of the soft greens and yellows.

I did a lot of fussy cutting and added a wood title and some flowers and ribbon.


Have a great week.

Elegance in motion!


Happy Friday! I found this beautiful stamp from Penny Black, elegance in motion, but I can not find it on the website, I just bought mine so hopefully it will be on the website soon, it is in the store...if you click on the link you get the SKU number, just in case you want to order yours!!(Edited: that did not work, sorry, SKU 55908)
I stamped it on watercolour paper and heat embossed it with gold. Then I took my colour bursts and an acrylic block, I put a tiny little bit of pithalo green with another tiny bit of sepia (to tone the green down) and sprayed a bit of water on it to activate, this is what I used with a tiny paint brush to paint the leaves.
I did the same with orange and alizarin crimson for the flowers. After it dried, I stamped the script randomnly with old paper distress ink and added some spiced marmelade and barn door to the corners.
The sentiment is also from a Penny Black set, sprigs, and it's stamped with versafine green.
I matted it on a piece of gold mirri board, hope you like it!!
                                            Till next time, Anja

Cosmo flowers


Happy Friday! Are you loving the nice weather too and all the flowers, nice and early this year!
I got to play with this cosmo flower stamp from Impression Obsession, I used distress markers on the stamp, stormy sky and forest moss and then stamped it on my panel (neenah paper). Did some sponging around the flowers, stamped the sentiment (Just Rite) with black Versafine and added
some Nuvo drops!!
For the background, I put some ink directly from the ink pad on my craft mat (forest moss and stormy sky) and then sprayed some water on it and inked up my script background stamp in it and stamped. I was pleasantly surprised how it turned out!
And I put the panel on an angle.....so not like me, lol! Hope you like it!
                                             Till next time, Anja
