Sweet Shop

Time for a little something different!  I am excited to be apart of a blog hop with Lawn Fawn and Xyron!  Check out details to win some goodies... and of course my project.  So sprinkle the love here and with the rest of the Design Team to be apart of the draw!

This week the Xyron and Lawn Fawn design teams will be sharing gorgeous projects featuring NEW Lawn Fawn releases - AND we're having a GIVEAWAY to celebrate! Just leave a comment on any (or all) of the LF projects we share on our FB page all week long and someone is going to win a $50 prize pack - a $25 LF gift certificate and a Xyron Mega Runner! 


OK the How you Bean? is totally adorable!  The set even has a separate lid stamp.  More possibilities...


I picked this pretty spring paper Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Paper pack.  I do love plaid.  I stamped on the pattern paper and wait for it... fussy cut.  Don't panic, there is a matching die How you Bean- Lawn Cuts for this stamp set.


All those jelly's stamped and yes, more fussy cutting.  I wanted to layer and stack the jars.  Trimming the beans so they spill the way the jars tilt.


ACK... trying the new Distress Oxide Inks by watercoloring the jelly's.  Love them!!!  Time to make this easy and my Create a Sticker to adhere all these jelly beans.


I know... it's still looking cute and you're wondering when it's going to look like my style!  Lets get the stacked mason jars through the Creative Station first.


I prepped my journal with Oxide Ink, smearing and watercoloring.  Peel the jars back and adhere.


A little stencil splotching and vintage photo Oxide and attach the stack of jars.  Flicky, flicky with water and BAM the Oxide turns magical. 


I added some Distress Collage Medium Crazing to the jars and jelly's.  Anything I attached to the pages.  I edge the jars and jelly's with black soot distress crayon and smudge.


I die cut the Hanging Sign and inked with Oxide.  With some left over green plaid paper and cut "SWEET SHOP" with Alphanumeric.  These teeny letters are perfect for the 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.


OMG the wee lids are adorable!  I added the Small Talk sentiments to the pages for fun... "Creativity takes Courage" and "Trust your crazy Ideas".


There you have it.  My new Art Journal, OK it's a really old book that has a new life with my "Sweet Shop" pages.


I love the stacked mason jars!  Not bad for such a cute set ;)


The Xyron  DT have been creating all week with Lawn Fawn.  Make sure to check out their blogs and social media for more awesome projects!

Lets create
A Vintage Journey- Happy Birthday

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
