Creative Canvas

Had a good time creating this canvas…lots of layers and details!!! The banner across the top left was made with Fiskars banner punch.The birds were freehand cut. Thought it was fitting to post this one as it matches my wordpress theme that I just chose lol.



He is with me…..

Sometimes I just need to remind myself that “He” walks with me so here is a fun little 5×7 piece of cardboard turned wall art/reminder.

Simply cover with paper and distress. Add psalm using left over alphas…cut  2 1/2 inch circles into spirals and roll into flowers…add trim as you see fit….voila’!

Can be hung on fridge with magnets or add some ribbon to hang on your wall….either would be super cute! 🙂

Would love to see your take on this idea….post a link to “your” creation so I can drool over it…lol




Well my first major project in 3 months or so is this canvas!! Lots of Prima yummies used, along with paint and glimmer mist, lettering is grunge-board sprayed with the mist too. The fabulous tulle is from Scrapbooking Fanatics as are all the Prima goodies…oh and the mist too lol…. Click image for larger view. 🙂

Well hello strangers!!!

Long time no post…lol! Due to some stressful personal junk I have been stalled in my creative arena but am starting to get my mojo back!!! YAY!  ………..stay tuned for some creative juicyness comin’ at ya soon…..and thanks for visiting and thanks for all your support!! 🙂

fall feeling….

Here’s a little something to get you in the fall mood 🙂 The layout is a digi  made using several of my  kits from ScrapbookMax, they have just updated the software to version 2.0 and it is waaaay cool! Some of the updates include: color picker, inverting of shapes, bendable text and so much more!!!! I am really loving the new features!

And the card  is just a fun 5×7 made using thye Sizzix Texturez plates, love that they can emboss larger than a 5×7 area!!!!!!!



Wed. Wanderings…

The kids are all at school, fresh coffee is in hand, the house is fairly quiet….as quiet as can be with 2 dogs and three cats in attendance….lol. I am gearing up for a bowling birthday party on Sat. to be followed by a small sleepover later in the day….my youngest and three others……..eeek!! lol

I am taking her shopping for her birthday  gift after the bowling part of the party….and she’s asked if she can have a pedicure too so hopefully we can squeek that in on the way home, I took her for one about a 2 months ago and she is now hooked!! 🙂 Maybe I’ll snag a quick manicure while she get’s her tootsies tended to!

Here’s my latest layout as well…..a fun summer moment with her caught on camera!!!! I LOVE this layout, every once in a while I nail one that is truely me, truely my style that truely represents how I “SEE” things…..and this is one of them 🙂 🙂 She loves it too!!! 🙂           (… image to view larger…..)



My youngest daughter decided to have a bowling party for her birthday on this Sat. so I designed a bowling pin card svg file this afternoon and cut it with my Cricut, then used a Cricut cartridge for the “your invited” and the star ….these are sooooo cute….especially when you line them all up like they are on the alley… I used graphite Glimmer mist to give them a nice sparkle!! Which reminds me I want to get some Shimmerz Spritz to try, I want to compare it to Glimmer Mist…has anyone tried both? What is your opinion?
