..:: it is all about perspective ::..

Hi friends! Today I am sharing a Traveler's Notebook spread with you! I created a Traveler's Notebook that is sort of a "junk" style -- it uses many different sizes and scraps of paper from an older Clique Kits kit that I am trying to use up. I will do a complete share of that journal at a later date, but I thought I would go ahead and share this first spread with you today!

I started with this tag that came in the NSD Clique Kits kit. It was white -- but grabbed my Shimmerz Products and changed that! 😉

For my tag, I started by using the Shimmerz Stampz called Bed of Roses, and Versa Mark ink to stamp on the tag.  Then I applied white embossing powder and use my heat tool to set it.  The embossing acts as a resist, so when I added my color over the top, you could really see the beautiful stamp! I used Coloringz Pink Stilettos, Coloringz No Yolking, and Coloringz Lil' Yellow Skool Bus to make that tag purdy! The Pink Stilettos matches the shoes in this photo perfectly, don't ya think?

I'm hoping to fill this little TN with positive thoughts and things to remind myself how lucky we really are. This story, a little story about perspective seemed fitting. Here are a few close ups:

I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  See you again soon! XO o.g.

..:: sweet kisses ::..

Hi friends! I am up on The Cut Shoppe and {A Flair for Buttons} blogs with this layout today!  I used flair from the Hashtag Summer flair set and the Primary Arrows flair set. The cut file I used is called Flower Arrangement and it was new to Th Cut Shoppe last week!

I started with white card stock and a brayer. I recently purchased Vicki Boutin art crayons and I wanted to try them out! So I used a couple of the yellow crayons, water, and a brayer to create my background.   Next, I grabbed the 6x6 paper pad from Pinkfresh Studio's Simple & Sweet collection to back a few of the petals on the flowers. I love how this turned out!

I layered some patterned papers, embellishments and tissue paper behind my photo. The I grabbed my new flair from {a flair for buttons} and found a few that matched perfectly! This #family one is my favorite and it is from the Hashtag Summer flair set. I also used a couple of pieces of flair from the Primary Arrows 1 flair set for extra pops of color.

I added a bunch of stitching around my page and through my title to finish it off. I made a video of my process if that's something that suits your fancy.

Hi friends!  I have a new layout featuring Shimmerz Paints to share with you! Here is my layout:

So for this layout I cut flowers from white card stock and leaves from one of the patterned papers in Crate Paper's Wild Heart collection. I backed the flowers with yellow, pink, and coral papers from the same collection.

Next I used three different Shimmerz products to add some texture and shimmer to the flowers. I used Creameez Trippin in the Tropics and Strawberry Fields and Inkings Good as Gold. I absolutely love this look! Here are a couple more close ups:

For a closer look at my process, if it suits your fancy, I invite you to check out this video of my process!
