Felt Flower

Hey there! It’s another #texturaltuesday over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC and I’ve made a super cool Felt Flower on a canvas that I hope that you’ll check out. The link is right HERE <—.

Today’s project is a feature that all the Ellen Hutson designers are doing this week and that is to work with felt in their projects. It was really fun! I always love making felt flowers and the canvas that I made for today is certainly no exception. 

Here is a look at the canvas with the felt flower.

Felt Flower

The die for my flower is from Memory Box (it is the Plush Ranunculus) and the felt is from Taylored Expressions (the assorted yellow -orange). 

Making projects like this is so much fun! I was able to get super painty with the background.  And, though I got carried away with the sequins, I really like how this turned out. The big, bold felt flower really makes this small canvas so happy.

The full tutorial and *tons* of photos for how I made this canvas is over on the CLASSroom blog , so please head over there for more information or if you’d like to just see how I made the canvas.

As usual, all of my supplies are listed below.  If you have any questions on the products, please send me an e-mail or comment below. Thank you!!

Mom’s Birthday

It was my Mom’s Birthday yesterday. And I made her a card. :) It’s what I do. The card that I made for her is today’s blog post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson, LLC. I’ve actually been working on the card for a while since I really wanted it to be special. There’s some things you need to know about my mom…

My mom is my chauffeur (since I can’t drive), she is who I talk to every day (either by text or by phone) — she keeps me grounded. My mom makes me laugh. She gives me a shoulder to cry on when I need it. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s going on. She hasn’t gone into her “golden years” gracefully. She’s gone kicking and screaming, dancing, and laughing. And I wanted to make my mom a birthday that would make her smile.

I made this card for her to let her know that I celebrate her every day. And that her birthday is just one more day to tell her I love her. 

The card for my Mom’s Birthday can be seen today in the CLASSroom along with the full tutorial on how to make it, if you should want to see my process. (With the exception of my coloring process – yaaawwwn!) 

All of the supplies that I used to make this card I have listed below along with a few alternatives. If any of the items are currently out of stock with ellenhutson.com, you can request to be put on the waitlist for the item for when it comes back in stock (love that feature!).

I hope that you like today’s card and that it makes you smile as much as it makes ME smile. :)

Canvas Bag Before

Using a bunch of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products to create a one-of-a-kind tote bag was so fun. Here’s what I created:

New Watercolor Card

Hey there! Happy Thursday! I have a really cool new watercolor card to share with you all on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog today featuring a new die from Technique Tuesday.

I’m kind of addicted to creating watercolor backgrounds, to be honest. I love the fluidity and the way the colors just move. To spend time creating the backgrounds just gives me a sense of peace and calm. I just wonder if people (you!) get tired of them. Hopefully not.

I tried a kind of inlay technique using a watercolor background that I created and a new die from Technique Tuesday called Happy Butterfly. It’s so beautiful. I love butterflies almost as much as poppies. But not quite. ;)

Here’s a close up of my new watercolor card with the full tutorial up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog:
