Kids Craft Friday

29 Jun

I was going through some old catalogs and magazines and getting rid of them, and The Girlio decided to keep some of them.  She has since been busy cutting out pictures and making cards, and I thought I would share some!

I love seeing her creativity and what she comes up with!  🙂

An Echo Park Layout!

26 Jun

Hello!  Today I am sharing a layout-something I rarely make!  But, I watched an Inkie Quill scrap stream on YouTube last week, and was very inspired to scraplift one of Adele’s layouts.
Here it is:
Supplies: Paper and Sticker: Echo Park; Stencil: Dylusions; Letter Stickers: American Crafts; Enamel Dots: Twine+Ink; Ink: Distress Oxide (Peacock Feathers); Misc.: Tissue Paper
I really like how this turned out.  I would never have thought to use a stencil like this, so that was something fun to try.
I also really liked that I used my favorite paper collection-which is supposed to be for summer-but works perfectly well on this layout.
Look for another snow layout using this collection next week-I was very inspired by the scrap stream and ended up with 2 layouts, 3 cards, and two ICADs, so if you are looking for a little crafty jumpstart-I highly recommend checking out Inkie Quill!  🙂

Card Monday-Echo Park

25 Jun

Today I am sharing two of the cards I made with my recent Tuesday Morning Haul.  I used the Summer Days collection from Echo Park, and a few leftover pieces I had from when I bought this collection the first time.  The only other thing I used was a white Signo pen.
I love the bright and happy vibe this collection has, and these were some super simple and quick cards to make!
Stayed tuned tomorrow when I will have a layout for you using this collection!

Tuesday Morning Haul!

19 Jun

I have been intrigued by all of the Tuesday Morning hauls on YouTube, and when I saw that there were supposed to be some new Tim Holtz goodies in stock, I had to check it out.
Sadly, my Tuesday Morning did not have any of said goodies, but of course I found a few things anyway.  🙂
I got:
Ranger Ink - 8.5 x 11 Mixed Media Cardstock - 10 Sheets

Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Alphabet Border Stencil (9x12)

DR126023 Summer Dreams 6x6 Paper Pad

Summer Days By Echo Park is my all-time favorite collection.  The pack I bought didn’t have all of these items in it (more of an abbreviated pack), but I was excited anyway.  I have a few bits and pieces left from the first time I bought it, so I will just combine them together, and play away! 🙂
So, I did get a few new things, and already I have made two layouts and four cards-yay!
Look for those projects on the blog over the next few weeks!
