Happy Together...

The best times are together times...

Isn't it time, to schedule 15-20 minutes to create and document your life?  What's keeping you from documenting your happy times together?

In the Garden Mini Album

 I am so excited to be sharing my new In the Garden Mini Album that I designed for Heart Sisters Scrapbooking Events.
It is filled with beautiful vintage inspired papers...
Lots of yummy embellishments. 
Beautiful ribbons, lace and fabrics.
Vintage buttons and price tags. 
Of course it wouldn't be complete without a little glitter added. 
And of course it is filled with places for photos and journaling.
I used Instagram photos using my camera phone to fill this album. 
So many memories that wouldn't have been captured with my big girl camera.  That is why I love how the camera phone has taken documenting life to a new level. 
Are you in the KC area?  Bring a friend and create this special album that is sure to be treasured for years to come.

Art Canvas for 2016 Canvas Corp Brands Design Team

I am so excited to again this year be designing for Canvas Corp Brands.   I wanted to share one of my first projects that helps define me as a person and designer.  I knew from the moment the challenge was announced, I had to use some of my beautiful vintage items along with the vintage inspired 7 Gypsies line of products.
I used the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, watercolors, pens and charcoal pencils to create a background for my canvas.
Then I layered on the 7 Gypsies paper, charm, pin and small ephemera tags.  
Next came the vintage crystals, button, beads, millinery, lace, ribbon and tulle to complete.  I think this 4" x 4" canvas truly captures a little bit of me.  What do you think?
