    Hi there! It's Ronda here today to share with you three boo-tiful halloween tags. I love this time of year and especially love creating tags for this season. Tags are a great little project to get your creative juices flowing. I like to hang them up together as decoration and then use them either on my layouts or all together in a mini album.   On the Little Monsters tag I painted the background purple. I like using pops of color with the typical orange & blacks. Purple is definitely one of my favorites to pair with those colors. Once my background was dried, I layered the frightful…

    I had this brilliant idea a week before the kids were off for fall break to run away to the ocean. I found a beach house steps from the sand and booked it with in an hour of this spontaneous idea. Before I had time to talk myself out of it. (I have used HomeAway.com for the past couple bookings and it has been smooth sailing both times. I recommend it.) Collin had to work so he couldn’t drive with us and instead flew down a day later. I still think that was part of a grand scheme to miss the loooooong drive. haha. But I packed everyone and drove by myself with four crazy kids. This…

This simple but impactful idea from Domestically Blissful needs some dry twigs, a vase, fall patterned papers and string.

The original tutorial at The Things She Makes shows how to make this as home decor, but I think this would be a great embellishment for scrapbooking your Halloween stories!

    Welcome to the Gossamer Blue Inspiration blog hop! We thought it would be a fun idea to share some projects with you, now that the October kits are arriving at your doorstep. Thanks for stopping by!I have two brand new projects to share today. The first is a card that I made with the October kits. I used supplies from the Main Kit and the Life's Pages Kit on here. I love to use Life's Pages cards on my card fronts and chose a white one with a scalloped circle as my starting point here. I knew it would be perfect to layer elements onto.I added a die cut frame, the flower die cuts, the…

I've been walking around with a little pit in my stomach knowing that my favorite time of year is going to be over soon. I know I should enjoy the time that I have now, but I'm still pretty sad. So, I thought that sharing this layout that I recently made for Crate would be appropriate given my mood.I love how it turned out.This page started out because I did some die cutting for another project.

    Nora’s birth was even more emotional than I had thought it would be. My grandmother had passed away two days before, so there were huge, sad, bittersweet, circle-of-life type feelings swirling around in me on top of the all-encompassing love I felt the second I laid eyes on Nora. Our bodies are pretty amazing things. I keep looking at this wonderful little creature and thinking we made her? From scratch? This perfect little being? Man, I love her. The birth itself was wonderful – I know it’s easy to say that now, since all memories of pain just evaporated the second I saw my…

    These days, we’re taking it slow. I don’t really have much choice, given that I am now gigantic and even the act of turning over in bed requires significant effort accompanied by loud grunting, but it also seems wise to get as much rest as possible now before our lives change forever. I am currently 37.5 weeks, and I’m torn between wanting to meet this little belly-dweller now and wanting to stay pregnant as long as possible – I love pregnancy, aches and pains and all. Hopefully I’ll get another chance someday. I rarely blog about everyday life anymore, so here…

    On last week's creative daily blog post, i went over the basics of paint brushes. This week i wanted to discuss the types of hairs out there and their uses. Often they are classified into natural, bristle, and synthetic. Each type has different properties and the prices vary from inexpensive to very expensive. The type of medium you are using determines the type of hair you should use Natural Natural hairs are from animals. The prices on these brushes is determined by the "grade" of the animal with Kolinsky Sable being one of the most expensive but considered one of the…

After i wore my beautiful gown full of lace and fabric, i had it cleaned & sealed for protection and possible later use.  i had an idea brewing a long time ago of turning my dress into baptismal gowns for grandchildren. i thought about…

    Deciding what costume to wear when you are a kid is kind of a big freaking deal. We’ve been talking about it for months and months. And they’ve all changed their mind every few days. Well, as we got closer I jumped online to buy some Halloween costumes for my kiddos. Making sure they made a final decision. For Avery, I purchased Little Red Riding Hood… since she mentioned that many times and I thought she’d look so adorable! When the package arrived it was pure drama… apparently I was wayyyyyy off and she wanted to be the young Maleficent. Ummmm, ok, but I…

    Tags are my favorite. Sorry cards, envelopes and boxes. If you want to get a pretty painted or watercolor effect to the bottom of a project try dip dying! It gives it such a cool ombre look. You also don’t have any brush stroke lines and basically let the paint do all the work. Each tag taking on its own look. Give it a try… When I dip, you dip, we dip! Little tags: (doodles are from iheartstudio.ca: ) I dip dyed plain white tags into red food coloring mixed with some water and once it was dry, I adhered them to some wax envelopes and embellished it with Dear Lizzy stickers,…

Wouldn’t they be perfect for a place setting at Thanksgiving dinner?(Include a name instead of thanks…) Or have these little “thanks” ready to show your gratitude. They are 2″x3″ when folded which qualifies as being adorable in the card making world. I love fall, I love feathers and I can’t stop watercoloring. So today I am sharing a little combination of my favorites. I was so excited to find a new use for the adorable dear…

    Deborah Mahnken
    30 Oct 2014 | 4:21 pm
    Keeping with our insane love for all things Doctor Who, my daughter wanted to dress like Rose Tyler again for Halloween.  This time, however, it was the Moment from the 50th Anniversary special.  However, she's (1) ten years old and (2) you can't find Doctor Who costumes. So I've spent many a shopping trip looking around for suitable items to replicate this costume - cheaply if possible. I ended up in the junior department of Nordstrom and grabbed three white/ivory lacy camisole tops for her to try. Rachel can fit into an extra small, although the lengths are quite long. I…

    You can find all sorts of fun things to decorate for the season, including this pumpkin I picked up at Michael's. It was kraft-colored - just like this paper mache one - when I bought it, but it only took about an hour's worth of effort decorate. Well, actually an hour and about 10 minutes. I'd picked up a package of Martha Stewart spiderweb tissue paper last year and wanted to use that on the pumpkin.  However, I couldn't decide which paper to use. So I made a small sample board from a scrap of cardboard to test out my options. You can see I tried out both the light…

For the skirt: I bought a couple of yards of tulle. The fabric store didn't have a good metallic color, so I spray painted the tulle myself using Krylon in a hammered finish.  I wanted to make it easy to make, so I basically folded the tulle in half, rolled the top over about an inch to hold a piece of ribbon and…

  • Week In The Life™ 2014 | Thursday Words & Photos

    AliEdwards
    31 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Happy Friday (and Happy Halloween).  As I went back through my photos today I decided to tell the story of each photo using the phrase "The Reason Why."  Why did I take this photo? What's the story? How does it add to the overall story of this week in our life? Or simply, why did I want to take a moment of my life to record this?  This is a good tool as you begin editing your own photos from the week and solidify the stories you want to tell.  THURSDAY PHOTOS & STORIES About 50 DSLR shots + 18 iphone shots. All the ones shown below are from my DSLR. The…
  • Week In The Life™ 2014 | Wednesday Words & Photos

    AliEdwards
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    For Week In The Life™, Wednesdays seem to be the day people find their groove or give up.  Don't give up.  There's a middle ground. After doing this many times I expect to let up on my enthusiasm a bit by mid-week, but I keep going.  And as you've seen over the last few days, I do a whole lot of the same stuff every day. Some people might find it boring, I find it normal. I actually like that I can take almost the exact same shot of me sitting at my desk or waiting for my coffee or saying the prayer for the kids at night. Those activities are my life, little things…
  • Week In The Life™ 2014 | Tuesday Words & Photos

    AliEdwards
    29 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Welcome back to Week In The Life™ 2014.  On Monday I took a lot of shots that included me and the people I interact with most. Today (Tuesday) I decided to simply focus on what I see and use that as the jumping off point for my images and my words.  As some of you noticed yesterday, I generally like to use a wider angle lens (the 24-70 opened all the way up) because I like to include the environment in my photos. It goes along with my "tell me more" philosophy. What else tells a story within the photo? What insignificant background stuff will be…

    Ah, Mondays.  My first thought tonight, as I sit down to write about the day and work through the photos, is that I'm thankful.  I'm thankful for a million different things but one of the big things today is simply the ability to capture pieces of my life through my lens.  It's a simple thing that I sometimes take for granted as I get caught up in this or that. I love being able to use my camera to tell the stories of our lives.  Before I share my photos for today I've got some general observations on the process:  One of my favorite things to do with this…

    And so it begins.  Welcome to Week In The Life™ 2014. My challenges to you this week:  Look for the stories. Read this post for inspiration. As you go about your day, think to yourself about how you can capture those stories with your lens. How do all these different stories weave together to create the life you are living right now?  Answer the question, "what is the truth of my day?" As you walk around your house, your office, your kids school, think about and document the truths that make up your day. Remember that it's NOT about the products. It…

Duh… I couldn't make up my mind. Is it 2014 or 2013 ?! What's happening to me …LOLHope you'll have a hand or two to get crafty this week!Be blessed.Em

  • Mixing Amy's Stitched Papers with Shimelle Stickers:: A Scrapbooking tutorial by Amy Tangerine [6]

    alice
    15 Oct 2014 | 10:00 pm
    I love incorporating different mediums all into one scrapbook page. Today, I am demonstrating some of my favorite techniques at the moment – stamping, watercolors and stitching. I love starting off on a fresh, clean sheet of white cardstock. To make the watercolor shapes, I made a small circle with a juicy dot of paint and used a straw to blow some air to make this splattered effect. For the 2 strips of paint below, I just painted two short lines, lighter color first, darker color on top. To add the circles, I punched out some phrases from Shimelle’s and my Stitched line of…

    Some of you may remember I designed a set of ‘real life’ phrase stamps for Two Peas in a Bucket last year, called Nailed It. With the closure of Two Peas, I now have the remaining sets of this design and can ship them from here in London, which may make a difference if you were hoping to order a set to a European address and shipping from the US was too expensive. Of course it’s still possible to send them back to North America if that’s where you are! These stamps are high quality photo polymer, made in the USA. They are long-wearing and can be used with a variety of…

    25 Sep 2014 | 10:00 pm
    When I saw that the Shimelle collection was overloaded with fabulous patterned papers I could not wait to get my hands on it… all of it. I immediately jumped in and got started. I picked a few papers to save for background papers and then I started cutting the rest into strips. Some of various widths but mostly in the one inch and one point five inch category. I am thrilled with this collection and can’t wait to create even more projects with the supplies I have left. Day One On this layout I used twelve strips of patterned paper. I cut each piece of paper just under an inch wide.

    Gold is all the rage right now, and using gold foil in scrapbooking has become a staple. I’d been toying with the idea of using actual gold leaf in my scrapbook projects for a while and recently decided to give it a try. In doing so, I found that it’s actually quite easy to work with. Now I’m adding gold leaf to almost all my crafts and may even prefer the texture over gold foil! Below is a three part video series where I create a mini book using some of the lovely products from Shimelle’s new scrapbook collection. In all three videos there are examples of the simple…

  • Scrapbook Page Design Embellishing with a Visual Triangle and Visual Hierarchy

    Debbie Hodge
    29 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Embellishing scrapbook pages with a strong visual triangle is good because it moves the viewer’s eye through your page. While you can add eye-catching complexity with the skilled use of multiple visual triangles, a clean and straight-forward approach also yields stand-out designs. Did you know that when you work with a visual triangle it’s important to have variety in those three embellishment spots? Yep. It is important — that’s how you get repetitions with variety and emphasis. Without emphasis (or a visual hierarchy) everything takes on the same level of importance…

    This isn’t a new story. It’s a story regularly told with the cliche time flies. And the frequently offered advice: “Enjoy them while they’re young! They grow up too fast!” Last week, I pulled out of the driveway with my 15-year-old son in the van. At the top of the driveway is a wooded circle with two granite boulders and a picnic table. We call this area “the big rocks.” As in: “I’m going up to the big rocks.” Kids were playing. It could have been my boys ten years ago. “I hate that you’re not little any more!” I…

  • Stretching Your Stash: Educational Supplies

    29 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    One of the hardest parts of having little ones is keeping them busy. This is especially true for me as I try to homeschool my older kids. The little kids want to be involved, but "school" for the littles is much lower on my priority list. I think kids should be running, jumping, playing, imagining, and having fun. But, I know they can also be eager to learn and so I like to give them a few educational things to do so they start to get a feel for what school is like. Using your digi scrapping supplies for educational activities isn't a new idea. In fact, Kate wrote a whole post on it. And I…

    Welcome!  Jessica here today sharing a double page Christmas layout I created.  It is rare for me, I know.  I just have so many pictures from going to the Botanical Gardens at Christmas time that I wanted to do two pages.  These five pictures don't even put a dent in how many I took but they were some of my favs.I used the Basic Grey Evergreen Bundle from FotoBella to complete this layout. One of the main attractions at the gardens are all the different species of poinsettias.  When I received this bundle in the mail, my brain went right to these pictures.

Today I wanted to share with you a banner and photo frame I did using the ready to frame 8x10 set. When I was trying to figure out what to do with the these, a friend gave me the great idea to turn them into a banner. I selected three of three of my favorites and punched two holes in the to of each.  Then I cut two 6x8 pieces of paper and punched two holes in the top of those.  I alternated the 8x10 and…
