You are so amazing *Jillibean Soup*

Hello! I have a card to share with you today. It was posted earlier this week on the Jillibean Soup blog. I combined one of the Mix the Media packages (cream version) with a label sticker from Cool as a Cucumber and some resin flowers on stick pins.

And of course, I added mist and twine (a couple of favourites of mine).

Thanks for swinging by!

Back to School *Pink Paislee*

Happy Monday! I have to head back to work today. I loved being at home with the kids for the last couple of weeks. We had a lot of fun!

Today I have a page to share that was up on the Pink Paislee blog last week. The theme for the past week was 'Back to School' and my assignment was to spotlight all the gorgeous alpha available in the different collections. Here's what I created:

Do you feel this way at the end of the summer? The beginning and the end of the summer season always seems bumpy for some reason ;)

There were lots of great patterned papers that could easily read 'school'. I chose the ledger from the Hello Sunshine collection and a variety of papers that feature letters and shapes from the Pen Pals collection.

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great day!

Tracking Santa *Jillibean Soup*

Happy Friday! I have a page to share. I created for the paper tradeshow in Atlanta and was sent the new Christmas line for Jillibean Soup -Holly Berry Borscht. Lovely, bright colours. Here's one of my pages:

Love the combo of dark woodgrain and bright colours. It's was fun to pull out holiday pictures!

Leftovers post...

Good day! I spent some time using the new Mix the Media stencils from Jillibean Soup on a couple of tags a couple of weeks ago. I posted a picture in my Instagram feed featuring a small pile of leftovers on my craft table, including these tags. I decided that I would put them to good use instead of taking the time to put it away ;)

I used a little paste on both tags. This first one I sprinkled some glitter on the paste, mixed it up and them sprinkled a little on the tag, one I had spread the paste over the stencil.

This second one, I mixed a little mist into the paste on my craft mat. Once the it dried, I painted a little glitter Goosebumps over the tag.

I had red and white embellishments out as the aftermath of some Christmas projects. I almost always have vellum floating around. I managed to use up odd bits of twine too.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!

#Friend *Jillibean Soup*

Good day! I have another card to share with you. This one I created using the new Mix The Media ephemera pack in blue, from Jillibean Soup. It includes the cool, jean banner pieces!

Everything I used came from the ephemera package, except the wood banner, the stamp and the stars. I stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink. I am happy with how little it bled!

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!

You & Me *Jillibean Soup

Hello! Well, I had the pleasure of creating for the paper trade show in Atlanta this year for Jillibean Soup. This is my first time creating for one of the trade shows. I had a little fun ;)

I was sent some new product called Mix The Media ephemera packs. Cool mix of embellishments and tags. This is what I created with the green version:

I added a couple of Wood Sprinkles and the stamp is from the Spicy Social Soup line. It seemed right to add some snowflakes. Be sure to head over to the Jillibean Soup blog because Jill is giving away the Mix the Media line before you can buy it!

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!

You & Me

A big rush of assignments has passed which let me work on a page that I wanted to do! I pulled out a Studio Calico kit called Camelot and tucked in. I also used a cut file that I was itching to use! That ampersand is going to be used a lot ;) Here's the page I created:

I added a bunch of Studio Calico goodies to the page to fill out the embellishments. I picked up the acrylic stars some time back and didn't want to use them until this page!
