12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017

Happy Friday! I hope that you’ve been checking in on the CLASSroom blog as there have been already a week’s worth of Ellen Hutson designers and guests for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017.

I’m so super excited to once again be paired up with the amazing Jill Foster of Penny Black. I’m always a little stunned when I’m paired with her as she’s SUCH a phenomenal designer. It’s like being told that you’re being paired with the Michelangelo of card design as your guest. A teeensy bit overwhelming. I can only do my own thing, though, y’know? Comparison will only kill ya.

SO!! For my challenge (since I’m the lead designer on this gig) I decided to create a SKETCH!! How fun, right? And I hope that you ALL will play along.

I’ll show you a sneak peek of my tag, but I REALLY want you all to head over to the CLASSroom for all of the fun. There’s prizes to be had!! YESSS!!!

HOWEVER? If you use my sketch? Please let me know in the comments with a link. I’d love to see what you created so I can head on over to YOUR blog and comment. ♥ I’ve been known to give stuff away, too., so I’d love to see you create with my sketch! ;)

Have a great time with the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017!!

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.

Watercolor Card

Hi again! I have a brand new post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. This one is special to me because it’s a watercolor card.

Now, that may not seem like a big deal to any of you, but I was trying to recreate an Aurora Borealis in watercolor and then use my adhesives as embellishments. I had a LOT of fun working on the Aurora. Looking at different photos and trying to get the colors blending and working just so. Then I wanted to use some of the many products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® as embellishments, not just as adhesives. So, that was fun, too.

Using watercolors to create an actual scene was kind of new to me. I usually use them in a more abstract way, or to color in a stamp. I hope you all like what I did with this:

I’d love for you to see the close-ups and alternate views of this watercolor card over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog. Please, go check it out and let me know what you think! Your comments always make my day. ♥

We’re expecting a MASSIVE storm here today, so I may be offline. But I appreciate each and every one of you.

Happy Veterans Day

Hello my friends! Wishing all of you a very Happy Veterans Day! I’m over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today sharing a card that I made for this Veterans Day.

I decided to make a card based on poppies and the poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae. I love poppies so much (since they’re so prolific here in California), but just knowing that they have such a historical significance makes them so much more special. I used one of my very favorite Penny Black stamps Blooming Garden (30-155) and gave it a little more dimension.

Here’s a special peek of my Veterans Day card:

If I could give this card to each one of the people that served before me, with me, and after me…I would. God bless each and every one of you for your service and sacrifice to this great country and to all of our allies as well.

Please stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog to read more about this card, how I made it, what supplies were used, etc.

Wishing ALL of my fellow veterans a very Happy Veterans Day.
