Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! I've been struggling to get my crafty MOJO going. I've grown tired of making holiday cards for now. I have managed to hoard various paints, inks, textures pastes, etc..., all waiting to be used so I opted to create a layout. The 12 x 12 space allows so much more room to be creative than the standard A2 size card.
I joined along with the current 7 Dots Studio challenge where the theme is The Holiday spirit
I scrapped a layout of my sweet dog Griffin all dressed up in his Santa outfit. If that doesn't demonstrate holiday spirit ~ then I'm not sure what does.

I used a variety of beautiful papers from the 7 Dots Studio Cold Country and Thoughts Keeper collections:
I added lots of ink and texture using the Tattered Lace stencil which was designed by my sweet blogging friend Kasia:
The title was die cut using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Creative Scrappers sketch challenge and I'm also linking to the Artist Trading Post challenge where the theme is Let's Celebrate (we're celebrating the holiday spirit in my home :)
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! Seems like this time of year flies by faster than any other don't you think? I took some time to create a few projects featuring pretty Pion Design papers. First up, is a layout showcasing a photo of Meredith and Connor that was taken about 13 years ago. I combined papers from the A Day in May and Days of Winter collections: 
Once the background was created, I embellished with a wooden tree and sentiment which I altered using shimmery and shiny embossing enamel along with a variety of flowers from my stash:
Next up is a card holiday card:
I stamped and embossed a Sophisticated Snowflake which I then layered on top of a variety of pretty Pion Design papers:
For the layout, I joined along with the December Words & Paintery challenge where the theme is Shimmer & Shine:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the My Scraps and More Sketches Sketch challenge:
For the card, for color inspiration, I joined along with the card Concept challenge ~ I think this one may fall in the classy and elegant category:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the MOJO Monday sketch challenge:

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES!
I was inspired to create a holiday mixed media tag.
Tags are so versatile and during the holiday season. A tag can easily be used as an ornament, a gift tag or simply an inspirational piece to spread some cheer!
This tag features a pair of beautiful layered angel wings and a crackled Mini heart:
and a lot of texture that was created using Texture Paste along with the Latticework Stencil. Once dry, I randomly applied various colors of Winter Distress Paints which made for a fantastic painted background:
Here's a visual of a few of the products used: (all are listed below):
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
