On the Rocks

I am excited to have been invited by Tami Potter to contribute to her amazing website … mosaicmoments.com.

This site includes videos, how-tos and everything you ever wanted to know about creating mosaic pages.

My first contribution to the site features photos from Lake Erie.

Christmas in July

I am loving the new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have been making plenty of cards to send to the company for samples, as well as for my friends and family. But, my first love is still scrapbooking.

Since the new dies are large enough to make beautiful accents on scrapbook pages, I decided to create a layout of last Christmas. With my children grown and no grandchildren in my future, Christmas is a pretty low-key event these days. So, I opted to just showcase a few highlights of the day.

The paper, letter stickers and word stickers are from Webster’s Pages.

I used several dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, including the Candle, Holly Flourish, Holly Leaves & Berries, Ornaments and Stockings.

I added Glitter Dots and a little ink to bring out the shapes.

These dies will be available at the end of July. You can order them from Elizabeth Craft Designs, here,check with your local scrapbook store, or contact me to get these amazing new dies.

 

Happy Birthday, Bianca

This month’s challenge at Scrap It Girl is a color challenge. The rules are simple. create something using navy, red, cream and kraft paper.

Since my cousin’s birthday is coming up, I thought I would make her a card in the Americana color scheme.

I used one of the doll stamps from Prima (Becky), but I only kept her bottom half. I love the way she looks hanging around in the top corner of the card. I colored her with Copic markers and then attached her with dimensional foam adhesive.

The paper is from Authentique.

I cut out the words, “Happy Birthday”, with an Elizabeth Craft Designs die.

As a final touch, I added some Glitter Flowers and Glitter Dots from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Please join me in wishing Bianca a very happy birthday!

Now it’s your turn … grab some supplies and create a project using navy, red, cream and kraft paper and share it on Scrap It Girl. You could win an amazing array of prizes!
