My little Shaker Maker

Hello everyone it's been sometime since I've posted on my own blog. This week at JAS the challenge was to create a shakerbox. I added my own twist to it I did a tag version and added mini punches in the shapes of baby's feet sunburst and crazy spirals I also added mini buttons and assorted stickles. This is my grandson Noah's blog debut. He was our miracle Christmas baby He was born almost 7 weeks early but is now a very active 9 month old little boy. Hope everyone has a great weekend and take a little time to shake things up.

Lots of Wings

Happy Thursday... It's another day at just-a-scrappin.com our challenge for the week was to do a garden theme I decided to do change up the challenge and do a fantasy take on the idea. I love fairies and of course butterflies and birds. We have a hummingbird that always comes around the backyard so I took that inspiration and came up with my creation.
   Using my new collection of toys which is distressing paints,ink pads and markers from Tim Holtz and perfect pearls I just stamped and colored and painted.

Using jet black stazon ink I stamped my fairy onto clear vellum and used assorted colors of perfect pearls to fill her in I let it dry completely and then cut her out. I did the same on the butterflies and humming bird and the little birdies but I painted the butterflies with spunsugar and seedless perserves my humming bird and birdies were colored in with assorted colors of disressing markers. I then added a flowering sunflower and a strip of grass.

  I hope everyone has a great week and don't forget to stop by just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com and see what the other girls created. Enjoy the sunshine and maybe spend a few minutes in your garden spot and create something special.

Spring is in the Air

It's another challenge at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com This week was anything goes using spring colors. I decided to work with pastel themed colors and mulberry paper. This is what I came up with from an idea in a challenge magazine from Papercrafts The concept was changed for what I had in my scrapping stash. I used buttons and fabric ribbon and floral embellishments instead of assorted felt circles.I also glittered and stickled a butterfly stamp from the Tim Holtz collection. Then adding a butterfly ribbon strip to the corner and a strip of washi tape to the bottom edge I finished my project with a Happy Birthday sentiment and added a few rinestones to finish up the center of the flowers.
I hope that everyone enjoys the great Spring weather we're having I sure hope that you all have a little sunshine where you call home and don't forget to stop by and check out all the great projects that the girls came up with this week.

Suuny Days

This weeks challenge over at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com was anything goes but to add the element of the sun. I decided to scrap a few pictures of our Vegas trip that I still have to work on and I choose a few pictures of myself and my cousin in front the Lexor. I had to add the main element of the sun so I placed a transparent embellishment of the sun with the illusion of it rising sun over the pyramid.
Using a strip of typed cardstock to the center of my page,to finish my layout I added a few chipboard embellishments.
Don't forget to stop by and check out all the great challenges from my design sisters and try adding a little Sunshine to one of your projects.

Happy Spring

This weeks challenge over at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com was to make an easel card, I choose a seasonal theme for my card punching lavender butterflies and using assorted spring themed stamps.
I also added a trim of ribbon and a few embllishments and glitter glues to add color to my brad.
Using u-tube as a starting point for a little direction on how to start a easel card (I don't really do cards) I found a easy way to understand how to do this challenge.

Using a peach color cardstock I trimmed to 41/2 x 81/2 using a scoreboard I scored at 4 1/4 and 6 3/8
folding in 1/2 on the first score and the second score was folded in the opposite direction I then added adhesive to the flap of the fold.

Using a butterfly punch from ek sucess I punched out mini butterflies and with the negitive image I inked the corner of my card I also added a brad to the center and a few purple pearls to the fold to keep my card in the shape of the easel With my stamps I added my greeting to the botton corner and with an idea of fluttering insects I double stamped my image to the center of the top side and then added a stripe of green ribbon that kept to my spring theme.

Hope everyone has a blessed Easter and enjoys all that the Spring has to offer us with pretty flowers in bloom and the birds singing outside their kitchen windows and as always remember to stop by just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com and see all the wonderful creations from our design team.
