Real Life


Hey everyone. Happy Sunday. There's a stash busting challenge at The Studio Challenges today. You are to use your older stash. The older the better. I found a collection from Fancy Pants from 2014 called 'Flutter'. It matched my photo perfectly and the flair button made the best title. I tried something different for the background this time. I took some distress oxide pads and stamped them directly on the background. I then misted them with quite a bit of water and then soaked up the water with paper towel. I then stamped on the darker pink and added a few splatters. Very cool technique and sooo easy. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

Sweet Baby Boy


Hey everyone. I have a recipe challenge from The Studio Challenges to share with you. I was able to use all the items which were tags (behind the photo), a stamp (dots and alphabet), 3 or more patterned papers, a punch (scallop border), washi tape and puffy stickers (word and alphas). I used Echo Park Paper's 'Baby Boy' collection for this page of the first photo of my new grandson. So excited to have this little sweetie join the family. For the background I applied watered down distress ink with the packaging technique and then stamped with the ink. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.


Perfect Photo Op


Hey everyone. Here's the last CSI file I solved for the month of August. It's cold case file #329. Some of the product clues I used are use older product ( My Mind's Eye collections from 2014 ), use diamonds, dots and stripes, use metal accents and hot air balloons. From the design clues I used create banners, use tearing, stitch a pattern and go wild with mixed media. These challenges are so fun. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.
