Xyron & Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  This week Xyron has teamed up with Perfect Paper Crafting for an amazing week of inspiration.  Be sure to hop on over to the Xyron blog HERE as well as the Perfect Paper Crafting site HERE.  Everyday Xyron has some goodies up for grabs so you don't want to miss out!!



I was a lucky girl and got to play with The Perfect Airbrush on my layout.  I used one of my Ranger distress markers as well as a stencil and just added little bits to the corners of my layout.  I used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the layout together.  



Here is a little close up photo to see how the stencil looks airbrushed.  The more you use the airbrush the darker the color, however if you just do light passes obviously the color will be lighter.


Supplies Used:
Perfect Paper Crafting - The Perfect Airbrush
Ranger - Distress Marker (Forest Moss)
Tim Holtz Stencil - Bubble
Graphic 45 - Good Ol Sport

Again thanks for stopping by today and thank you to Perfect Paper Crafting for sharing your tool with me.

Junior Year } Petaloo & Core'dinations

Hey there everyone, so glad you have stopped by the Petaloo blog today.  We have some amazing projects to share with you this week for our Core'dinations blog hop.  Today i'm sharing a layout with you.  It's my daughters Senior year....and yes I have a little catching up to do on her book before graduation.  I love to mat my photos and on this layout wanted to make the "2013" pop and not blend in with the background paper so I matted that as well.

Here is a little close up for you.  The Core'dinations cardstock is simply amazing....I love to sand the edges or emboss with it.  For this layout I used the Petaloo Darjeeling Mini (autumn) and Mini Daises (red)...they matched perfectly with the paper.

Clear Scraps August Kit

Hey everyone, today i'm going to share a fun card and an easy home decor piece with you that I created using the kit this month from Clear Scraps.

Up first a sweet little card that I may slip into hubbys lunchbox to make his day a little brighter.  I love the alphabet pattern paper and I cut out the "I" and "U" to create the sentiment. The ribbon that I tied on this card I had in my stash.

Up next is a easy home decor piece.  This project is not "done", I want to get some texture spray paint and paint the frame either black or red color for in my living room.  I fell in love with this saying and when I cut it out it was the perfect 8"x10" size so I placed it in this frame to keep anything from happening to it.

Again thanks for stopping by the blog today and checking out what I created with this months kit.  Have a fabulous day!!

The Story Of Us} Clear Scraps

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm sharing a fun little tag mini album that I created with this months amazing kit from Clear Scraps.  I'm loving this paper line in the kit from MME and all of the little goodies are just so much fun to create with. 

So here is the cover of my little mini. I used the binder ring that came with the album to hold the pages together and then tied some ribbon that I had in my stash to cute it up a little more.

Now for the inside pages.

You can see on the page above I like to use the little pieces of pattern paper that are on the bar codes as well....waste nothing!!!

On this next page I simply loved the camera on one of the pattern papers and had to cut it out so I could pop it up as an embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoyed my little tag mini with this months amazing kit.  See you next time!

#determined } Art Journal

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I have created an art journal page to share with you today using the super fun products from Art Anthology.  I created this page to help me stay focused and determined on some fitness goals and changing some of my not so healthy habits.

I first started by spraying water all over both pages, then grabbed my Colorations Sprays and misted colors here and there on the page.  The colors I used are Glorious, Heart & Juicy,  Next I grabbed my stencils and Art Anthology gesso to create the days of the week on the left side of the page.  Once the gesso was dry I stamped some images using Archival ink along with a couple of Stampers Anonymous sets (Mini Classics & Word Text). Here is how my journal pages turned out.


So once I was done stamping I then took my white signo gel pen and drew some circles and arrows on the page.  I wanted a little pop of orange so I grabbes another stencil along with the Tango Velvet Dimensional Paint for that.



Hopefully this journal page will help me stay focused and determined!!

Supplies Used:
Art Anthology - gesso, Tango Velvet Dimensional Paint, Colorations Sprays (Glorious, Heart & Juicy)
Stampers Anonymous - Mini Classics & Word Text
Signo - White gel pen

Thanks so much for stopping by today, maybe this will help some of you stay focused on your goals!
