I am up on the Indigo Blu blog today, come on over and see what I did with paint and stamps and whole lot of fussy cutting to create a beautiful layout showing a part of our incredible trip to Scrap Addicts in Canada last year.
I have been waiting for this design team call for a couple of years..... its time to throw my hat back into the ring! I feel like I have been off to college and ready to come home...lol!
I had a blast making a couple new projects with the latest releases for this post along with projects that I have made in the past! I am currently working on a full size dress for the upcoming Summer CHA show in Las Vegas! Excited about that, keep an eye out on the blog for updates!
A Secret Garden Canvas Mini Album Featuring A Secret Garden from Graphic 45, May Arts twine and burlap ribbon, Ranger Pearls and a whole lot of fussy cutting!
A French Country Layout Featuring French Country by Graphic45, Silhouette by Want2Scrap, Ranger pearls, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Altered Tray- Olde Curiosity Shoppe Featured in "Just Steampunk" by Scott Publications. Featuring Olde Curiosity Shoppe by Graphic45, Blumenthal Lansing buttons, May Arts twine, Ranger Pearls and Beacon Adhesives.
I have been having so much fun with the wonderful fall and halloween dies from Spellbinders and just had to share some of it with you. I shared this layout today and how I put it together. I loce that I got the handcut look with dies and stickers. To see the full post, head on over to http://bit.ly/spookylayout on the Spellbinders blog!
I also tried out a new technique (to me) by heat embossing the stenciled area of a Spellbinders die cut. And I made a card! The funny thing was that it was so easy to make, I am getting the hang of this I think!!
I hope you are enjoying the Fall weather and getting ready for the holidays!
Did you see the blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Graphic45? I could not resist using an ENTIRE PACKAGE of 3D Foam Squares on this layout. That's kind of how I roll, or should I say STICK!
So I have a little confession to make. I am in the middle of moving and have to move from a very large studio to a small bedroom, this is temporary while we wait for escrow to close on our house. This is temporary but nonetheless, there are deadlines for projects. I was sitting in my room with boxes all around me, and could barely find the basics. Scissors, paper, adhesive, distress ink, blending tool and pen.
After some searching, and a big mess, I gathered the basics. That is all that I had to work with. If you know me, you know that I dont use many embellishments unless I can make them out of paper.
Using the new Graphic45 ABC Primer collection, beautiful May Arts ribbon, laser cut fence from Imaginarium Designs, twine, distress ink and blender, copic pen and nothing else...I created a little story:
I wanted a sewn look but of course, do not know where the sewing machine is at this moment so I resorted to some twine carefully tied around the cut and dimensional frame. Then topped it with a tag.
The fence actually sits off the page an inch and is held with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, 3D Foam Squares.
First of all, I had the utmost pleasure of meeting Christy Tomlinson of Scarlet Lime.com at Ranger University a few weeks ago. Christy is such a sweet girl, I love that she was just herself no matter what because just being her was great! I look forward to my trip with Christy in Utah in the future...(I have not forgot)
Prior to Ranger U and meeting Christy in person, we had the pleasure to feature one of the Scarlet Lime kits and She Art Class for the May issue of Scrap n' Art Magazine. And I had some "me" time etched out and played with the kit.
This layout is of my youngest daughter, Mariah of photos that were taken by my oldest daughter, Chelsea Rosenberg of CLR Photography.
All products used were in the kit, with the exception of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (tm) 3D Foam Dots and MyStik adhesive.
These kits are fabulous and loved working with this one, thank you Christy!
Yesterday I got a message on Facebook from a friend saying they saw my Graphic45 layout in the newest issue of Creating Keepsakes. Of which, I promptly replied, no it isnt. The layout was not due to come out until June/July, so I thought. Not only that, I had scanned this issue 3 times already in the last week and did not even see it. Ok, so I am bit preoccuppied...but still, really? I missed it.
Well, anyways, she was right and now I can share it. (Creating Keepsakes, March/April, page 80)
This is my "adopted daughter" in Atlanta, Georgia. She is such an incredible young lady and volunteered to be "Rosie The Riveter" for a photoshoot for Bombshell Stamps. I nicknamed her Miss Hollywood because that is where she belongs...she is a true chameleon and can fit into just about any theme! Someday, she will be autographing this layout of mine! Love you Kae!
My daughter, Mariah was so happy to see that the layout I made with her photos was hanging on the wall in the Graphic45 booth at CHA. She is my rock star and love this layout, "Always walking the tight rope" as that is my girl for sure. I wanted to share it with those of you that have not got to see it yet.
And the entire design team was asked to make records with a sleeve for the booth display that Diane was masterminding. This was a lot of fun but definetly took some serious thought. I have a couple actual vintage records so it made a great template!
Although I will be stepping down from Graphic 45 this April, I could not imagine not using the most beautiful paper I have ever seen! Thank you to the entire Graphic45 company for a wonderful two years!
