Always Follow Your Heart . . . Guest Designer at 13 Arts!

I'm so excited to be guest designing today at 13 Arts!  Back in June I won their monthly challenge and Ayeeda sent me a package full of 13 Arts products to work with.  I worked with the beautiful All Is Collection along with some pretty flowers and some amazing mists.  I love their mists!  So rich and vibrant.

My layout was created using their current September challenge.  There are still a couple of days left to enter the challenge.  You can find all the details here!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just The 2 Of Us

Lots of new things have been happening over at Frosted Designs!  They have opened an online store with lots of great products.   You find all the details here and enter for a chance to win one of two prizes.  It's my turn today on their blog and I am sharing a layout I created using  products from their online store.

I chose to work with the beautiful collection Shabbylicious by Fabscraps.  Love these papers!  They are perfect for any type of picture, but I decided to go with an old photo of my Mom and her brother.

Here I have added a cluster and used products from Kaisercraft Paper Blooms , an Um Wow Flair and a Fabscraps sticker.

I added some circles using the Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil and some Golden Molding Paste.

What I love about the Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil is that it has scattering of circles, stars and hearts on it.  Here I have added some hearts.

Please make sure you head on over to Frosted Designs and enter for a chance to win a prize.  While you are there make sure you sign up for their newsletter.

Starting in October they will be offering two kits for sale.  A Scrapbook Kit and a Mixed Media Paper Kit.  I'm thrilled to announce that I am the Mixed Media Paper Kit Coordinator.  I have been putting together some unique kits that offer products for those of you that are new to mixed media, as well as seasoned mixed media artists.  I can't wait to share the first kit with you next month.

Thanks for stopping by!

I Love Your Smile

I decided to go through a box of old pictures of my kids, as it seems like ages since I used any of them on my layouts and came across one of my son.  He was so little and so darn cute.  He still has the sweetest smile and dimples that I am sure will melt the heart of any girl and has grown into a  handsome young man.  I used my September kit from Artful Delight along with their September Layout sketch.

You can find all the details of the kit contents here as well as the sketch layout challenge.  We also are having a detail call.  All the details can be found in the link above.

Thanks for stopping by!

Walking In The Forest

Happy September 1st!  
Can't believe how fast this year has flown by.  I am hosting the September Challenge at Berry71bleu this month.  It's a sketch challenge.  I designed the sketch and in addition to using it I ask that you incorporate some mixed media into your project.  We have two great sponsors this month, Maja Design and The Porkchop Show.  Each member of the DT was given the Walking In The Forest collection by Maja Design to work with this month.  Here is the layout I created.
Love this photo of my Grandmother combined with the pretty papers from the Walking In The Forest Collection.

Here I have used some chipboard from Scrapiniec, who sponsored our DT.  I also used the new Prima mask Lace Doily #1 by Finnabair.  Love this mask!

I incorporated a lot of stamping in my layout using Kaisercraft stamps and inks.

Please come by Berry71bleu here to check out of the details for the September challenge and then create a project for a chance to win on of our prizes this month.

Thanks for stopping by!
