Fishy Card and a New Class Coming Soon!

Hello, hello!

I have some news about a class coming up...

But before I get to that, I have a quick card video to share with you...

I had so much fun putting that together! As mentioned in the video, I used some lovely 28 Lilac Lane buttons and those can be found at many places...

Now, on to some class news...

I have been hard at work in the studio filming a new class! Subscribers get to know all the details first and get access to the lowest price. So, if you haven't subscribed to my class newsletter yet, you can fill out the box on the righthand side bar. (email readers and feed subscribers will need to click through to my blog to see this.)

Ok, so... want a few hints as to what the class will be?

Think: mini class, art journaling

I can't wait to share more!

June Pocket Pages!

Last week I mentioned that I had fun at a birthday crop. I made lots of things, one of which was my June pocket page spread...
This is another picture heavy spread - lots going on in June! Also, one pocket was devoted to some cute little love notes we got one day from our oldest.

Plenty of 28 Lilac Lane and A Flair For Buttons made it in too!

And seriously... how cute is that camera??? It's a stamp set by ALTENEW and was a birthday present from a dear friend,

The second side of the spread also has lots of pictures, another one of those cameras, plenty of 28 Lilac Lane and AFFB... also, see that cute scribble circle cut? That was a die that was another present from a sweet friend. Gotta love good, scrappy friends! Oh, and that bird? Buttons Galore and More. I just love it!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!

Art Journaling, Local Scrapbook Store Fun, and a Crop!

Hello there!

I have a fun little art journaling video to share with you today:

In my last video I mentioned that I am finding my groove with a more painterly style... leaning more towards a nod to abstract realism. You can see me playing with that here. There is a small portion of my process where I forgot to hit record... oops! So, what you don't see is my doodling of scribbles, then filling them in with gelatos. I also painted a very primitive house.

Thanks for watching!

A NOTE: I have had many lovely requests for more in-depth videos, talking through my process, and explaining how I draw my faces... please know that I have plans to work on an Art Journaling Mini Class... hopefully available in the next few month. Thank you!

I had a ton of fun with this spread!

This week, I also had the pleasure of attending my first, "in real life." class at my Local Scrapbook Store (Paper Dreams in Kennesaw, GA)
It was a Bible Journaling class and as I have never done this before, it was really fun!
The instructor showed several ways she used their chosen stamp of the month and then we all just played!

Here you can see what I did:
You might notice, I didn't do mine in my Bible... I don't have a Bible Journal, so I created this to use as a tip-in/bookmark.

I also got to play in my Documented Life Project this week, at a birthday crop that a dear friend of mine hosted for several of us with July birthdays...
You can see me putting some Buttons Galore and More goodies to use there!

I also worked on some scrapping and art journaling and will share more of that soon!

A Throwback with a Video, Buttons, Flair, and Documented Life....

Hello there!

I have a new video to share with you...

And here is the finished page...
I just love how this one turned out... a new favorite for sure!

This week, I have been working hard on getting caught up with my Documented Life Project!
Here are some sneakies...

As you can tell, I have been using lots of Flair from A Flair For Buttons and plenty of gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane!

And, as you might have guessed by that last picture, I am caught up! That means I am officially 6 months in with this. So, I think a little flip through video is in order, don't you?

Stay tuned!
