Winter Wonderland 2 Crafty chipboard inspiration.

Hello everyone,
I have a couple Christmas projects to share with you!

My first project is a layout.
 I used Maja Design papers and left the layout pretty shabby.
 I embossed the chipboard with white embossing powder.

You can see how I created this layout in the video below.

Here is a few detail photos.

I love this Merry Christmas sentiment. I also tucked a doily border behind
some of the paper and I love the snowflake chipboard pieces.

Mixed media canvas

Hello everyone! 
I have created a mixed media canvas! It is a little out of my comfort zone with the colors but I had a lot of fun with it and I love the result. 

I used some Tim holtz tissue paper so the background had some interest and texture. I then used some fabric, Art stones, and metals to create more texture. I used Frank Garcia's Artisan powder and some of Finnabair's rust paste along with some Prima color bloom spray to create the color. 

You can see how I created it in this video

September 2 crafty chipboard layouts

Hey everyone. I have a couple layouts to share with you. I created these for 2Crafty chipboard

 I kept them pretty simple as I am trying to make more layouts that
 I can put in my scrapbook albums. 

The first layout  I painted the chipboard with black gesso. I have some peeking out from
the layers of paper. I also used part of a circle chipboard that I painted with black gesso.
 The Together title I painted with white gesso. 

Close ups showing the title and the 6" Circle Revolution Frames
and the cut up pieces of Circle Lace Panel.

This second layout I kept simple again. I just embossed the chipboard with
 white embossing powder. I cut up the quote so I could fit it how I wanted it. 

2Crafty has a huge range of titles, here is the one I have chosen for this layout,
as well as the gorgeous fine and dainty Squiggly Heart Cluster.

Abby turns 5!!!! May 30th

Hi everyone! I wanted to share some photos and ideas from Abby's 5th birthday

She wanted a Paw Patrol birthday until the week of her Birthday party and she changed her mind to Doc Mcstuffin. I got most of these ideas from Pinterest. 

I kept the decorations pretty simple to mostly store bought. I found this made things less stressful in the end and everything really goes in the trash anyways so it was no time wasted. 

Here are some fun ideas for some snacks 

I got the cute print outs from this Etsy shop Swish Printables
I just printed them out and adhered them to some cardstock. 

I am most proud of my cupcakes. I am not a baker. I can barely pull off a box cake so when the cupcakes turned out so well I was so excited. 
I got the recipe for the cupcakes here. 
I got the recipe for the frosting here 

If you want to see more of the birthday celebration you can see the Birthday Vlog here. 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. 

Thank you for stopping by!!!!

Prima heaven sent projects!

Hello everyone. I am playing a little catch up with my blog so there will be many posts in the next few days. 

My first one is a few projects I created for the new Prima mid-release. This collection is so amazing.

The first project is my favorite. it is a DIY window picture frame. You can change out the photos as the baby gets older.  

You can see how can create this project in the video below.

I created this simple card 

I have had an idea to do a star box with a mini album inside for a while and once I got the collection to play with I knew it would be perfect. 

You can see how I created the box and mini album in the video below.

With the collection being shipping soon I thought I would share my projects.
