Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope you’ll join me on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today where I have an Autumn Mixed Media Canvas to share with you today. Here’s just a taste:
This is a super duper, easy-peasy mixed media canvas to make. It barely even qualifies as mixed media, really, but there IS paint on it, there IS embossing paste, paper, adhesive, sequins, glitter… and even PanPastels. Okay, maybe it IS mixed media. Hahha! I just love all the shimmer and shine this has on it. It turned out very pretty. (If I DO say so myself.)
So, please pop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the photos and the post. And if you have any questions on how I made it? You know where to find me. :)
Two Posts? Back-to-back?! Shocking, I know!! ;) But, I have a really cool mixed media decor piece on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today. It’s a neutral decor piece on MDF (medium-density fibreboard). Working with the Textural Accents and finding ways to Mix and Match the products is just so fun!
Here’s a little sneak peek of the post. :) It’s verrrry sneaky.
I hope that the super-sneaky-stealthy pic makes you want to see what I have in store for you over on the Design Memory Craft® Blog.
And, I’m thinking of doing a quick YouTube video on showing how to use Paper Crafter Crayons™ (yes, I use them on this piece). Thoughts?
Hi crafty friends! :) I can’t believe it’s already a new week (even though it’s already Tuesday!) I’m sooo super excited to be a part of a Blog Hop with Penny BlackandScrapbook Adhesives by 3L® today. I love Penny Black stamps. As most of you know and this week the ladies of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® are getting to play with some of their new Holiday releases. And let me just tell you? They are BEAUTIFUL! Swoooooon-worthy!
The two stamp sets I used for the sneak peek of my card below (gotta get ya over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog, right?!! ;) ) are Sprightly and Beauty of the Seasons.
So, go check out the card and get chance to win some really awesome goodies! I love blog hops. Don’t you? :)
Hi my wonderful friends! I’m super excited today because as part of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® DT we’re blog hopping with the awesome ladies (and some gents – haha!) at Unity Stamps! This is a week long blog hop and I’m squealing in my seat because I get to kick this celebration off! Woohooo!
I hope you’ll stop by and check out my tutorial on how I made my little wood panelled mixed media collaged piece come to life. It was a LOT of fun. The stamp from Unity that I used is called Harmony Girl and she’s a beauty. Here’s a little sneaky peek of my project over on the Design Memory Craft® blog today:
There’s some cool little tricks that maybe you haven’t tried before and some goodies up for grabs, too, so please stop by the blog. Make sure to comment on their blog and go by the Unity Stamps blog. Always check out everyone’s Facebook pages, as well. :)
Wishing you ALL a wonderful week and happy hopping. xoxo
Hi! Thanks for joining me today. I’m so happy it’s almost Fall! I just wish the weather around here would cooperate. It’s soooo HOT! Anyway, I have a really fun Autumn tag to share with you over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today. This is just a sneak peek, but I wanted you all to see just a little bit of what I had in store for you over there. ;)
There’s lots of color going on this tag. Color, shimmer, shine! And if you love the changing of the seasons, like *I* do, I hope you pop over to the blog to check it out. Autumn really is my very favorite time of year and I think this tag is a perfect reflection of what I love best. The yummy colors. Cozy, beautiful and warm. ♥
Thanks for stopping by today!! HUGE hugs to you all…
PS – I’m having HUGE issues with WordPress, so please bear with me if you run into any issues. Thank you.
Hi!!! I have a really wonderful card (if I do say so myself – which I just did) on the Bloom Girl Design Team Blog today. It’s my second post as part of the team and I am really in love with this card. It’s using Jamie’s Joy Bloom Girlstamp, copper embossing powder, and PanPastels to color. All of the embellishments (except for the sequins) are from Prima.
Hi everyone! I have a new post over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog today and it’s a fun one. Okay, well it was fun for me. ;) I learned a lot from making this project. And that was that mistakes are just opportunities to grow. To learn. In fact, maybe we should stop calling them mistakes and just start calling them learning opportunities?
I made a mini journal board (well, a mixed media journal board!) to show how it could be used as something different. NOT just as a journal board, but as a little gift instead of a card. These would be awesome as decor items, too. Maybe for Halloween? Or Autumn? Or as a Teacher’s Gift? How fun! Mostly I just wanted to show how to use something that was intended to be used one way and use it as something else. Here’s a close up of the project:
If you go over to the Faber-Castell Memory Craft® Blog and check out the post there, you’ll see the entire project PLUS the video on how I made it. BONUS!! :) (If you’re a subscriber to my YouTube channel, though you may have already gotten the inside scoop. Lol!)
I do hope that you enjoy seeing how this was made, seeing how I used the “oopsie” to my advantage and also seeing how versatile these mini journal boards are!
Thanks for joining me today! See you again soon.

Hi everyone and happy SeptSTAMPtember® ! :) I was so VERY luck to receive a stamp set to play with from Simon Says Stamp in order to create some sneak peeks and show what I can do for their HUGE release for their month long awesomeness that isSTAMPtember®.
I had a ton of fun playing with this stamp set which is called You’re So Sweet. Here’s a pic of the full set and you’ll see more from me throughout the month using the set, too.

And here is the card that I created with this yummy stamp set!
I had a lot of fun creating this card. I used a bunch of my Gelatos®(Blood Orange, Mango, Tangerine), then stamped the oranges over it using my Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in Black #199. Then I stamped 3 more oranges and used my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencilsin #’s 111, 115 & 117 (from the Yellow Set) AND the Gelato® in Blood Orange to watercolor the oranges. The combination of colors really made the colors POP! I added just a dot of white to the centers using the Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in white (#101)
The oranges were popped up using the small, black 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and attached to a panel of watercolor paper. Then I stamped the sentiment and a sweet little heart using a black pigment ink (onto vellum cardstock) and I heat set that with a clear embossing powder. I wrapped it around the card front and adhered the whole darned thing. :) I colored the inside of the heart with the watercolor pencils (breaaaathhhe) and added some dash lines. That’s it!
There are a lot of possibilities with this stamp set from Simon Says Stampand I’m so happy that I got to play with it. I hope I’ve given you a few ideas, too.
STAMPtember® is sure to inspire from so many artists from near and far! Stay tuned to their BLOG
Hi my friends! It’s been a busy week and I have a new FUN card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. I’m using one of the Designer Foam shapes – 3D Foam Butterflies ! They are so fun and so super versatile.
Here’s the card I made, but I hope that you’ll check out the card on their blog so that you can see all the awesome supplies that I used on it.
They have all kinds of different fun shapes! I can’t wait to have a bit more time to play and have some fun with some of the other shapes, too. But, if you all know me then you KNOW I can’t resist these pretty butterflies anyway. ;)
On just a quick side note: Did any of you get to tune in to the Ustream class that I had with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft last night? It was my first one!! I was super nervous and I ran out of time to complete the project. I had such a great time, though. I’m already brainstorming for my next one. :)
Thank you ALL for checking out my blog, for being followers, and for being the amazing people that YOU are. ♥
Hi everyone! I’m up on the Design Memory Craft blog today as we participate in a blog hop this week with Hazel & Ruby. It’s been a super creative week already and I’m super excited to be playing along in this hop. LOTS of fun things to be creating with.
I made a really fun and easy canvas using supplies from both companies.
I think it’s super cool! But someone (who lives in my house that is not my cats) was telling me that it looks like it says “She scared”. That kind of bummed me out. In which case, I change the color scheme to orange and black and make it a Halloween canvas, I guess. *sigh*
Whatever! I like it! And *I* think SHE SOARED!! Please go over to the blog to see how easy a canvas like this (soaring or not) is to make. ;) Plus, there’s lots of prizes, too! Comment here and tell me I’m not crazy, then go over there and comment to WIN!! Yayayayayyy!!
