Cherished Memories Journal Page

November 22, 2017

I am sharing one of my newest art journal pages using the Sparrow on the Post.
I first die cut the white card stock then stamped the image using Stazon ink.
Stazon in doesn't run when using watercolors.
Next, I used watercolors to color in the image.  Letting it dry.
Then, I found a wonderful vintage image to pair the sparrow with, adding twill, kraft e-flute and vintage lace.
Many wonderful memories bird watching with my family.  Do you bird watch?

Joy Card

November 20, 2017

Christmas cards don't always have to be in the traditional reds and greens.  Why not try adding a non-traditional color such as the purple?  It's easy with the new Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Assortment - Country Holiday Collection.
I used the gorgeous purple ribbon, layering two bows.  Then I tucked the Silky Ivory Crush Ribbon to the under the pine cone image to add additional layers and softness.
I hope you enjoyed a fun and easy holiday card.

Vintage Christmas Cards

November 19, 2017

I am so excited to be teaching my newest card class, Vintage Christmas, at Vintage in KC on Tuesday, December 5th.

These sweet images of Christmas pasts.  
The excitement and anticipation of the Jolly 'ole Elf coming down the chimney.
Of baking Christmas cookies and trimming the tree.
Call Rene' at Vintage in KC to reserve your spot.

Christmas Card

November 17, 2017

I have been in the Christmas crafting mood lately...  here is a super easy card using a purchased snowflake, some beautiful ribbon and berries from Really Reasonable Ribbons.
I layered the papers, and then adhered the snowflake, ribbon and berry cluster.
And then I added some glitter glue to add a little shimmer to the card.

I hope you enjoyed a little holiday inspiration.  Have a great day, sweet friends.

Capturing the Season

November 15, 2017

With all our busy schedules, work, school and family responsibilities it is sometimes hard to pencil in taking the time to capture and documenting the seasons.  But what I have found out when I actually take the time I feel more relaxed and rejuvenated.  It makes me a better person, wife, mother, friend and employee.  For me, I relish spending lazy Sunday afternoon's being creative.  I encourage you to take time to create and capture the seasons of your life... 
you might just find unexpected beauty just around the corner.

Project Needed RRR - Blog Post

Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop

Hello ribbon lovers!  I am joining the Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members for the November  Blog Hop.  With the beautiful RRR Monthly Country Holiday Assortment  and the Gracielle papers and image, I have been creating a little holiday magic.
I printed the Cheery Digital Image and then used watercolors to fill in the image. Then I used the beautiful ribbons from the Monthly Assortment and added the Arianna Lace.
I hope you enjoyed a little holiday inspiration.  If you would like more inspiration, visit the other Really Reasonable Ribbon DT Members.  

Have a wonderful day, dear friends.
