DCWV Fall Layout

Loved making this layout using the DCWV Sweater Weather stack along with their Fall & Halloween combo matstack, burlap and corrugated stacks. That's a mouthful!! The vintage buttons are from my stash. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  I did put the square burlap under the shape instead of separately.

Crazy Bird Hugs!


Loving these Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and the Ellison Dies to match! Die cut the bird and its eyes and mouth out, then popped up eyes/mouth with Scrapbook adhesive mini black squares. Inked the edges. Used a Simon Says Stamp die Hugs which is one of their exclusives from last year, with Bazzill cardstock to match greenish blue bird. Colored bird with copics. Added washi tape (One has orange leaves) from my stash and Viola! Enjoy!

Birthday Bird

Love the new Crazy Things stamp set that Tim Holtz added to coordinate with his already hilarious Bird Crazy stamps and after seeing them, am dying for them. But in the meantime, since I had this challenge, I decided to see what I may have already. Scrounging through my crafty supplies, I ran across Creative Imaginations epoxy stickers with birthday hats! Voila! Stamped with Tuxedo black ink and colored with Copics. The background pattern paper is Simple Stories Summer stripe, and The Twinery Caribbean and  Lemondrop twine was used as well. These images make me laugh! So cute!

For this challenge I matched my project with the fish on the cover of the second magazine.  I was reminded of the big eyes and mouth similar to the bird! Also, used turquois and yellow colors to match, as well.

New York Sky Line Layout

Here is my New York Layout for the Paper Crafter's Corner Challenge and was done to match the focus on the silhouette of buildings, grays and black of the background, and white title of the Magazine cover.  I used Paper House Productions on the left page, and Creative Imaginations and black cardstock on the right. Mat cardstock is a glossy champagne color to match the glitter on the page.
Pictures are taken from the Staten Island Ferry boat ride which is free if you have the subway pass. You can't beat the views and I'd even recommend going at 6pm so you get the full affect! Enjoy!

Adult Coloring is Fun with Lindsay Ostrom drawing!

This is a drawing done by the amazing Lindsay Ann Ostrom, who published 3 books out for #AdultColoringBooks by Adornit!! She had sent these to me personally, and of course had a blast coloring in all these beautiful flowers!! I used my Copic Markers. Enjoy reading more about her on her blog, FB, and Instagram! Used Crystal Lacquer by Ranger for flower centers! Sentiment by Paper Smooches.                                               
                    This week's challenge asked us to use at least one of the following for our projects: Coloring, Crayons, A Coloring Book Page, A Coloring Book Character, Crayola Colors, A Story About Coloring as a Kid, Pictures of You Coloring (as a kid or now!), Melted Wax, which I did with Lindsay's coloring book page, and copics!
