Life is a gift...Celebrate

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a great start of the new year. It's been many years since I've created a layout, so what better way to start off my year than to create a "mixed media" layout. I love to follow many challenge blogs, as they can give so much inspiration and many creative ideas on what one can do to start off the next project. I have always worked best when challenged, be it home life, work life or just creating in general, for me challenges are a great way to expand my creativity in many diverse ways.

I absolutely love the freshness of a new snowfall, the scenery is always so beautiful. While going for a nice walk around the neighborhood, I couldn't help but stop to take this lovely photo of my husband and our most adorable pup "Dallas". What better way to celebrate...than to celebrate life with those we love and the wondrous beauty of Mother Nature.

Enjoy...

Inspirational Butterfly Tag

Hi everyone, hope you're all having an enjoyable summer. Today I am happy to announce the I am the guest designer for Berry71Bleu's Challenge Blog... it's truly an honor, thank you Denise and the team for having me on.

This month's mood board is "Summer Hideaway" which is posted below...and my take on this month's challenge is more of a last hoorah to Summer. Change is near with the new fall season just ahead and with summer coming to an end, I thought it perfect to create an inspirational tag using some beautiful butterflies and perfect wording from Dylusions stamps... "what appears to be the end is usually the start of a new beginning".

Love these colors, by far my favorite color combo, with my favorite color yellow being at the top... I can't tell you how thrilled I was to use them in my tag. I have a video tutorial with a complete supply list posted below. Be sure to stop by Berry71Bleu's Challenge Blog for much more inspiration and have some fun by joining in on the challenge too!

Enjoy...

Mixed Media Art Prompt Box

Hi everyone, so happy to be back after a well needed break, I'm totally rested and so ready to get back to creating! For my first project of the year, I decided to start off with an Art Prompt Box. I found this idea on YouTube from Rach0113, click here for her video.

This is the first of 2 boxes. I'm making a list of ALL of my supplies/tools/styles/etc. that are in my studio, I will then print and cut them out. I will add all of my supplies etc. to the first box, when I'm ready to create, I will pull out 3 and create a project. When I'm done I will put it into the 2nd box, the idea is to go through your 1st box. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say there are many things that were bought throughout time that haven't been opened.

I plan to do another video, once my 2nd box is complete. I will then show you the process and start by pulling out 3 things that I will have to use to create. There's not limit on what you use, but you must use those 3. Other than my DT posts for Cardz TV, all of my other projects will be based from the prompt box.


I love this idea and I hope you all get inspired to Create Amazing Art!!!

Enjoy...



I did make a video showing the process, unfortunately it cut out before I could finish...I'm hoping you will get the idea. 

 



 Have a great day!!!

Gratitude Card Set

Hi everyone, hope you all had an awesome and enjoyable Christmas. Now that all has settled down a bit for most of us, I decided I would make some Gratitude card sets for myself and as a card gift set to family members.

This is my DT post for Cardz TV Gallery and I used Cardz TV Stamps "Many Thanks". I also used some beautiful "Natural White" twine from Timeless Twine. I purchased the clear boxes online from Clear Bags. The photo corners are from the Silhouette file #67953.

I will be back after the new year with some exciting news, as it will be a very busy crafting year for me.

Wishing everyone a safe and Happy "2015" New Year!!!

Enjoy...




Happy Crafting!!!
