Be Kind

I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays project that I named “Be Kind” from the stencil I used on the CLASSroom blog today featuring ways to find your own texture around the house. This was a really fun little canvas for me to make and I hope that you will all enjoy it, too.

Finding new ways to create texture, especially from things that you just have lying around the house, is so much fun. Even if you’re just using it as a focal piece, as I did for two of my pieces on the canvas. But the fun part is that you can see from the pieces used (go to the BLOG ) how these items could be used in so many different ways.

Here is a sneak peek of the Be Kind canvas just to whet your appetite:

I know you can’t tell much from this…it’s a TRUE sneak peek!! But, there’s actually a lot of texture right there. ;) Even just in the words “Be Kind”. I’m loving this sneaky thing. Hahha!!

In the supplies list you’ll be able to see what PRODUCTS I used but not the free stuff, so that won’t give it all away. I really do hope that you’ll check out the full post. It’s not too lengthy and I hope that you’ll find it useful. I know that if you’re a card-maker that enjoys making CAS cards that you may not be super interested in texture, but maybe you would want to use something you learn from the post for art journaling? And it’s really fun and not super messy…not too bad. :)

I hope that you all remember to Be Kind to yourselves first and foremost. It seems that we are all so busy trying to be nice to others we forget about ourselves. Be Kind to YOU. ♥

SUPPLIES:
The supplies I have listed below are affiliate links from Ellen Hutson.com that I used in my project.  All of the products were purchased by me with the exception of those with an asterisk.

Spread Your Wings

Hi! I’m finally back from CHA. I have a quick card to share over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today using some of their newly launched products from CHA. It’s a quick card that I made with a little “Spread Your Wings” rub-on as a sentiment. But, the real showcase is all of the new product anyway. I had to hold back. ;)

Here’s a little peek:

There will be LOTS of posts coming up with so many new things to share. This is just the first. I sure hope that you’ll pop on over to their blog to see how I made it.

So many wonderful things came out of that show and I just can’t wait to share, but for now? I need REST!!

Enjoy my little “Spread Your Wings” card, check out all the yumminess on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Blog, and I’ll see you again VERY soon.

Have a wonderful weekend. ♥

Love Tag

Busy week! I’m back again with another project to share. :) Today’s is for the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Design Team. It’s a Love Tag.

Sometimes I don’t feel like making a card or a canvas and I love the vertical space of a tag. Especially the #10 tags (8 ½” L x 4 ⅛” W). I make my own using chipboard so they can hold up to all my schtuff (haha!), but you can always buy them, too.

For my tag today I wanted to make something really special, but NOT especially difficult. I like to use unconventional colors and find different ways of using things. Try to think outside the box…or frame in the case of this Love Tag. ;)

As usual…just a peek. But I promise it will be worth it. ;)LisaAdametz-LoveTag-Blog-1So many cool things on this Love Tag! Texture, shimmer, color. This is a tag that begs to be touched…to BE loved! Are you getting the idea here?

Please check out the step-by-step on how I made it, with some additional photos on the BLOG.

And, as always, if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to hear from you.
