Second Post for today
If your looking the the Altenew Traveler’s Notebook post, click here

 

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new found love of mine.  I recently started keeping an art journal and I’m having an amazing time with it.

I’m a beginner and I totally love getting my fingers dirty with paint!! It is totally freeing to just play!

Once I finished getting my paint down and dried, I used Lavinia Stamps to add my magical garden.

Take a look:

I love how this turned out!! I love that I created it!! I can’t wait to give this a try again.  I’m such a clean and simple crafter that when I see pieces like this I’m amazed.  It all makes sense to me now.

I’m going to enter this into the Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge. I miss those ladies so I’m stopping by to share my work with them.  I hope I’m able to amaze them.

{Clean and Simple} – Pizza

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Now I have to admit, I was having a hard time with this cue card this week because I didn’t have a pizza stamp.  I know I couldn’t believe it.  I search and search, but to no avail, I had nothing.

So this morning, I searched for a digital image that I could use and in seconds I found a couple. the one I love just so happen to be free!!!  Yayyyyy!!  I love free, LOL!!

That is how I was able to create my card and get it up just in time for this challenge!!  I love when things come together in secs.

Take a look at my card:

I love this Pizza Chef Toodle image is so cute.  Its a Broken Book Design Digi Stamp that I found on google.  This image comes in black and white and in color.  I couldn’t find the artist name but thank you to that artist for saving the day for me.

To use this image I simple pulled the image in Photoshop, resized it and added color to the pizza and dough.  Very easy to do.

This image did come in color so here you go:

It came ready made for you. I could have just used this image but I only wanted to have the pizza and the dough in color.

Great digi image right!! (Wiping the sweat off of my forehead!)

Here are the two images side by side:

What do you think?

Hello everyone!!! I’m here today to show you how to create a calendar using Deflecto’s Pouches.

These pouches come in a 7-3/8 x 6 inch size and are package 5 to a pack.  They can we used for tons of things: a recipe card holder, picture holder, display piece or even a banner!!

I created a flip calendar.  Lets take a look:

deflecto flexible pouch

I used 6 pouches to create this cute calendar.  Two months in one pouch.

Here’s how:

I used the Cinch to punch evenly spaced holes in each pouch.

Then I created a cover and put the book to together.

Create your calendars and add them to the pouches.

Before you put all of the calendars inside their pouches, use an enamel dot to make off important dates.

Nice and simple!! I keep this calendar on my desk so that I do not miss another birthday.

So what do you think? Will you use the flexible pouches to create a calendar for yourself?  I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you were inspired here today.

Rubber Dance Stamp July 2017 Color Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with Rubber Dance Stamp July 2017 Color Challenge!

Take a look at the colors for this challenge:

Take a look at my card:

I love these colors.  They are so pretty together and they are happy colors.  I worried about the purple and yellow becoming muddy when mixed together but it didn’t happen.  These colors mixed so nicely.

To create this card:

I added the three colors of paint to the gel press plate and used a brayer to spread the colors around.  Once that was done, I place the mixed media paper on top of the gel press plate to create an impression.

Then I used Rubber Dance Stamps Something Wonderful and Round in Circles to add the sentiment and details to the card front.

Super easy and fun. What do you think?  I would love to hear from you.

Guess what!!!  If you like this stamp set or any other stamp set from Rubber Dance Stamp, use coupon code: KTFreeShip for free shipping!!  YES, Free Shipping.
