3 projects to share today ...

I've been busy!  I have 3 projects to share with you and some news ...

1) I’m more than a little excited to have made the Off The Rails Scrapbooking Design Team! I’m looking forward to working with this group of amazing designers. Be sure to check out the
Off The Rails Scrapbooking Blog for the challenge details and to be inspired by the rest of the design team.

2Crafty Chipboard is the sponsor this month. They are offering the lucky winner a mixture of their gorgeous chipboard.

Below you will find the May Challenge Mood Board. When I saw the colors I knew exactly what photo I would be using on my layout. I love this sweet photo of my son Jesse and grandson Vincent. So with the perfect photo, some Gesso, paint, ink, a stencil, a stamp and some embellishments from my stash I got to work. I created a funky page with a little retro vibe going on.


2) I have a Design Team project up on the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches Blog today. I created this page for Sweet Baby Isabella’s album.

I used the
Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #303 with no insert to create the border strip behind the photo. I used the circle cutter, the B Stencil and the Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #905 with the 6.8 (small) Positioning Parts to create the doily.   I love all the detail these punches add to a project!


The perfect heart punch for this "Sweet Baby" page.

3) In honor of National Scrapbooking Day I have a challenge up at Turtle Soup. Be sure to check out the forum for the challenge details and the rest of the challenges from the design team.

I love using paint on my scrapbooking pages. Paint is inexpensive, readily available and easy to use. It’s also a fun way to add an artistic edge to your pages. For this page I added paint to my Gesso. I then used a stencil and randomly applied the tinted Gesso. I also used some chalk paint to make splatters on my page. So use some paint on your project and create some magic!
