Turning Anything into Something...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. This week, anything goes!

I just love turning nothing into something, anything...
And one of my favorite ways to do that is with my ever-growing pile of scraps!

It was such a delight, piling up and gathering all of the random bits and scraps laying around on my desk...

And adding lots of paint, string, and of course... clouds...

To create a little canvas of houses!



Now it's your turn! Don't forget to link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp.com.



How awesome is that?


Here is my supply list (keep in mind, that a majority of my project was lots of leftover papers. I have linked to my most used collections of patterned papers to help you in your selection, if you don't have a scrap problem like I do :) )

"O" is for...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. This week, we are all about the letter "O."

Here’s a letter we haven’t covered yet – what will you use? October Afternoon products? Be inspired by the number one? Create an ombre effect? order new goodies to play with? We want to see what O means in your crafting!

Well, I'd say with the last name of Oliver, this challenge has my name written all over it!

To really play up the theme, I decided to play with LOTS of the letter "O." I cut these all out from my Tim Holtz Alpha die. And with my chosen photo, I think they look super fun all lined up! I just love how they look less like a repeated letter and more like a pattern...
 To play up my title, I backed one of the "O's" with some patterned paper...
 And then I just started playing around with embellishments...
 Lots of sequins, and some wood veneer...
 And there we have it!
"O" is for... Oliver girls!

Now it's your turn! Don't forget to link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp.com.

Just in Time For Fall...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  This week, we are all about fall!

Fall is my most favorite season and I love an opportunity to craft about it! For this layout, I have chosen a photo of a blanket that I just finished for one of my girls. This one was slow going and was supposed to be done a year ago. But hey... at least I finished it just in time for fall, right?


So... with my embossing folder and die cut at the ready, let's scrap!
First I die cut, then I embossed these leaves. Now for some watercolors...
With those all dry, it's time to figure out my page composition. I really like the colors of the leaves, so I simply want to add in some gold accents and keep the rest of the page simple...
These rub-ons should come in hand too!
A little gold vellum down the side, rub-ons in place, and leaves stitched on ... this is coming together...
Some finishing touches of wood vaneer...
And there we have it!
Love working with these fall colors....
I can't wait to see how you interpret fall this week!
