Cherished Memories Mini Album

September 18, 2017

Do you love to document your cherished memories?  I created this Cherished Memories album to document our trip to Golden, CO last year.
It was an amazing adventure seeing all the beautiful places.
Climbing Red Rocks park...
Going up to the mountains and hiking up to the glacier.
Visiting the quaint town of Golden and walking along the river.
The best part of this trip was spending it with our kiddos.
As our kiddos are becoming young adults, I realize that these family moments are fewer and far between.  
That why I want to drink in and savor each moment that we have together.
Seeing my guys doing something they love together... priceless.
And being able to enjoy some pampering time with my girl, was one of the highlights of our vacation.
The of course our vacation wouldn't have been complete without Connor and Ken's extreme car ride and Janna seeing Peyton Manning at training camp.
So many wonderful memories, tucked into this album.  And the great thing is all the envelops to tuck more photos and journaling.
So many wonderful cherished memories.  This kit is now available at Photographs and Memories.  You won't want to miss out on this one!

Autumn Art Journal

September 15, 2017

Today, I am sharing pages from my Autumn Art Journal filled with lace, baker's twine and burlap string from Really Reasonable Ribbon and joining their RRR Challenge - Anything Goes!
I added a bit of feminine softness with the gorgeous Debra Natural Crochet Lace to my pumpkin artwork.
Next I added a bow using one of my favorites, the Burlap Natural String, topped off with a vintage button.  It adds a lot of dimension without a lot of bulk.
Keeping with the natural theme, I added the Baker's Twine Brown Sugar to the bottom of my next journal page and topped it off with a charm.
I hope you enjoyed a little autumn inspiration.  To see more inspiration, check out the other projects over at Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge - Anything Goes.  then link up your own project!  

Wishing you a creative day, dear friends

Halloween Altered Mini Album - Too Cute to Spook

September 11, 2017

I have created many wonderful mini albums, but my Halloween Altered Mini Album - Too Cute to Spook is one of my favorites.  
It is filled with wonderful family memories, vintage images and embellishments.

For this album I coated the pages with gesso to give a softer look and to allow some journaling room.
Next I created this burlap layered flower and topped it with a vintage earring. 
Beautiful papers, vintage book pages and some glitter to add just the right touch.
I hope you enjoyed a little look back at this sweet album. 

Why not start creating a special Halloween album to showcase your ghoulish memories this year?

Autumn Art Journal Page

September 9, 2017

Art journals are a fun and easy way to create smaller pieces of artwork.  Journal are packed with  creativity, but small in space.  It is easy to add dimension and softness with ribbons and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 I add one of my favorite ribbons, the Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon to the top of the page.  
Next I added the White Magnolia  and tucked bows made with the Ivory Burlap String underneath.
Sticking with the cream tones, I added Ivory Ric Rac and the gorgeous Juliet Natural Crochet Lace to accent the top of the second page. 
(Journal pages created from old book, Gesso, Prima Marketing Watercolors and 7 Gypsies products)

I hope you enjoyed a little creative inspiration, dear friends.

Bee Happy Altered Project

September 1, 2017

Creating with vintage and vintage inspired products make me happy.  It is combining the old with the new.
Spending time bringing my vision into reality and getting my hands messy.  
It is a therapy for me to be able to slow down, breathe deep and see where my creativity takes me. 
(Altered vintage album pages using Melissa Frances, Canvas Corp Brands and vintage items)
My studio is my "Bee Happy" place.  
Where is yours?
