Elle's Studio Sketch

So it's a rainy day here and I got to work on the new Elle's Studio sketch. I used some Basic Grey Picadilly paper and of course some Elle's Studio tags.
My title is "race you". They had so much fun!
I took and folded the banners a little on the edges to make them look "real".
I used the new Jenni Bowlin ticket punch.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hambly Studio is starting a new sketch challenge each month. And of course there is a prize!!

Love these new mini overlays! Aren't they cute?!
So if want to play along with the sketch be sure to link it back to the comments on Hambly's post HERE.

New Look & New Layout

Good Morning! I super excited today to share my new look to you all and by new look I mean my blog. I was tired of trying to find the perfect look that fit me and a friend (thank you Sarah) referred me to Two Happy Mamas Blog Design. Kristina did a fabulous job!

And now to share a layout I did. I used an older sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and some papers from my stash (I'm trying to use up lots so I can buy some of the new cha stuff) and I used the Epiphany Crafts circle tool.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Rachel then took my kit and tweaked it a little to what was available. Love putting papers together because of their colors! And if you haven't picked yours up there is only 1 left so hurry!!

Elle's Studio Sketch

When I saw the new sketch over at Elle's Studio I knew I had to play along. This sketch is cute and fun! I also used the new Burlap & Buttercups February kit.
This is my four taking "a winter swim".

I used an Elle's Studio "details" tag for my journaling. You can also see the cute Epiphany Epoxy a created too.

And here I cut a tag in half and also used a date stripe.

The Paper Bakery February Kits

This month over at The Paper Bakery I got to design and create the February project kit. I LOVE making mixed media art!! And since Sarah's kits are "project" kits I thought what a great way to get people to try a canvas. I hope everyone enjoys this months kit as much as I have! And don't forget you will get detailed instruction on how to make this exact canvas.
Here is the canvas I created:

Here is what is in the kit and as you can see you will have some let over to make a little something else.

Here is this month add-on kit "Grandma's Attic" I loved every bit of this kit!

Here is a project I made using the add-on. It's a basket of flowers for my daughter's teacher.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I just wanted to take a minute and thank all you who left me such sweet comments on my last post. I really appreciate all you taking the time to visit my blog!

Today I want to share a sweet Valentine's Day layout I made. I used papers from my stash which is always great and I used the Epiphany Crafts circle tool and embellishments.

Here I used an Epiphany embellishment and some Studio Calico rub-ons.

Here is a mix of companies: Paper is Crate Paper and MME, border sticker is Crate Paper, word sticker is MME, and the Epiphany embellishment.

And in this epoxy circle I captured a butterfly from a piece of Pink Paislee paper.

Love Every Inch!

Good morning! I finally get to start showing you my layouts using the new February kits from The Paper Bakery! I really love all the fun exclusive pieces Sarah adds each month. This kit has a cute tag that says "Love every inch of you" and I could resist putting it beside this picture of Hannah in the snow. I also used the February Sketch.

I took the wooden doilies that come in the kit and used them as masks.

Here is a close up of the journaling.

Snow Layout using Epiphany Crafts

Happy Saturday to all of you! I wanted to share a fun layout with you all that I made using the Epiphany Crafts Circle & Button Tool. I had so much fun playing with these tools and the possiblities are endless what you can punch and capture with them.

This is my "Snow day" layout. I used a mix of paper and embellishments.

Here I used the circle maker and made these cute little epoxy's to accent the banner.

Here I used a chipboard snowflake and rub-on snowflake and place a button I punched in the center.

And on this one I used a MME brad and Studio Calico rub-ons.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
