Creative Scrappers Sketch #249

Hello everybody :)  I thought I needed some quiet time in my craft-space to reflect on some changes in my life that are right around the corner.  So I turned to my go-to challenge blog perfect for night like these.  I even played with the paper that I WON from the challenge in January :)  Thank you!  The picture is a bit crooked, but don't mind that.  The paper is yummy, it's Glitz!  The flowers are a mix of Prime, Kaiser and the $1 section at Michaels :)  And of course the Polaroid stamp is Lawn Fawn.

The big changes are the fact that in less than 20 days my husband will be moving to Montego Bay, Jamaica!  My daughter and I will be following once school is out in June.  We will be down there for a year or so.  Don't tell my boss!  He doesn't know yet!  Thank goodness he doesn't know my blog!  So I'm sure there will be lots of adventures on my blog and I of course won't be around much while packing up my craft-space, can't take it all with me :(  but It's going in storage so I'll forget everything that I have and it will be like Christmas when we move back!! :)

Having a little sketchy fun tonight.

I wanted to make something tonight, but once again I was stumped on what I wanted to do.  I hate that!  I didn't want to make an album, because I know I'd be up until 2am wanting to finish it and well I turned to my trusty favorite Creative Scrappers! LOL!  I have been dying to play with my October Afternoon Woodland Park and of course I added lots of flowers!  The Studio Calico letters are awesome, I think I'm going to have to pick up a few more packs so I have them :)  This is my adaptation of sketch #244 go check it out here!

Creative Scrappers Sketch 241

I fell in love with the new BG Fact & Fiction collection and was itching to use it!  So my go to place for a good challenge is Creative ScrappersSo I used the latest sketch and created this fun and whimsical layout!  And it's actually a 12x12, shocking!  It's such a silly picture of me & the brat making funny faces at the Christmas Dinner table, shortly after we got in trouble. LOL.

We have been SMASHing lately the two of us, and she really enjoys it.  I'll have to share some of our pages in another post.  My new years resolution this coming year is to give myself more time to do the things I love to do with the people who mean the most!  I hope everyone has a very happy and safe new years!!!!

Heidi Swapp Memory FIle

I had the opportunity to play with the NEW Heidi Swapp Memory File line!  I have this love for office products, so I'd have to say the whole file folder idea I was all about!

Basically there are a ton of folders, big & small, plus a bunch of other elements to make your folders pop!  Then you create all your separate files and file them in your box!  Each box holds quite a lot of files!

As you can see, they make the perfect little gifts!  Here are some of the files that I made!!

As you can see there are many possibilities!  For those of you who are local, you can see this at The Paper Niche!  All of the products are also in stock now!

Prima Fun

 Happy Sunday!  I am sharing with you today a Prima book that I made for a display at the Paper Niche.  I had such a blast playing with all the goodies!  First off the blank album is kind of intimidating due to the fact it's 50 pages!  I quickly starting gluing them all together!

Make sure you click the pictures so it will open them up to their original size and you can see all the lovely stuff!  If you want to see this in person you can stop by the Paper Niche and check it out!!!

More fun with Canvas

This piece is probably my most favorite recent creation :)  This is a mini 6x6 canvas that I made pretty!  I started off  placing some canvas on the canvas to create some dimension.  I used some gel medium mixed with acrylic paint to get texture.  Alcohol inks create such a beautiful color on canvas.  Around the edges I used Craco Crackle paint and then stamped with Staz-on and used twinkling h2os to pain the leaves.  Then I just clustered!  The pearls around her neck are real vintage pearls I took a baby bracelet apart that I purchased thrifting.  I am including some close ups as well so you can see how pretty!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm really going to try to get back into updating my blog more often!  I really miss sharing my work!  Hope everyone has a great Monday!
