Sending love their way

Made a few courtesy cards for my sorority sisters who have been ill using Lawn Fawn You've Got Mail clear stamps.  It was fun stamping again using the mailbox, hearts, sentiment, and mini envelopes.  I also added the hearts to the envelopes.  The image is one of Robert Jackson's.  I already had it colored and since our sorority colors are crimson and cream, she was perfect to add.

Sunshine Mail with Stitchy Stamps

Spreading a little SUNSHINE today.  Hope you join us at Sunshine Mail and make a card for a child and mail it. I usually make two for a boy and girl.  My goal is to mail them monthly.  While going through my stash of cards, I found a box of cards I've made for challenges.  They are going postal today!  If you too have a stash, mail them to Sunshine Mail Foundation, 2465 Centreville Road, #J17-767, Herndon, VA  20171.  You can find the donation form here.  Thanks to Stitchy Bear Stamps for being our sponsor with these cute little digis!

 Along with the two for this week, I'm sending eight more.  You can find more information here with all the guidelines.  You can put them in one large envelope.  They don't need individual envelopes.

Canvas Art Journal

Here's my Design Team work for Scraps of Color E:Spire.  I found this Recollections Journal that came with a kit full of pink papers and chipboard embellishments.  I used all of the contents on an Altered Prima Journal previously posted and had the canvas left over. The texture was a bit hard to work with so I covered the front with paper and used watercolor for the back.   As you can see, my blog was the inspiration for the back.
The front of the canvas was painted, but I decided to cover with paper.  It was distressed and sprayed with Tattered Angels mist.  I used modeling paste with the brick template at the middle left, stamped clocks on the paper and added some metal ware.  The paper, flowers, leaves and ribbons came from  C'est Magnifique  July 2014 kit.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm headed back to the scraproom to dabble with some acrylic paint.  Make it a great day!

Have a Need? Sow a Seed!

It's September and Mema's Crafts and her M & M girls are welcoming Autumn with a color challenge.  Yes we are ready to get cooled off from the raging heat.  I've altered a toilet paper roll with Die Cut With A View fall paper stack using a digital from our Sponsor Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  I used the leaves from the paper and added a metal leaf with burlap to add more texture.This is a project for my Sunday School class.  They will each receive one.  Our theme for the month is 'Have a Need?  Sow A Seed!"   As we move into the season of giving, I am excited to hear what seeds they will be sowing.



We would like for you to join us this month with our inspiration to create from this color challenge.

You can see what our other DT members created here.

Prima Doll Altered Journal Swap

Hi I'm back with another swap I participated in over at Scraps of Color hosted by Adriana. My partner was Tia B and her theme was pink with inspirational quotes.  I'm not a big fan of pink.  I love crafting with it during Breast Cancer Awareness month, but otherwise I don't use much.  Michaels had the cutest Recollection paper and chipboard embellishments.  I found a few pieces from my stash and it was on. We were suppose to get a journal and alter it using a Julie Nutting Prima doll. I think I am now "tickled pink"!  I wanted to share a few pages from the journal.












Tia B said she loved it and it was the BOMB.  That did my heART good!

Happy Birthday to Me I'm 53

Thank you God for another year!  I've been celebrating since my nephew's 1st birthday July 27th.  He's adorable and not because he's MY nephew.  It's amazing how time flies.  Because of him I'm scrapbooking again!   Love the cute stickers by Crafty Secrets Beautiful Brown Baby.

We celebrated his birthday in Memphis and I made him a banner which is now in his bedroom.  It's made up of fabrics both cloth and leather complimentary of Hilton Worldwide that I received during their Crop for a Cause last year.  I think I put it to good use. Burlap was added to the back of it and Die Cut with a View embellishments on top.  Oh I forgot to mention the letters are compliments from Classygirl Crop by Cosmo Cricket Blackboard Vintage Mix.


 My mother's birthday was August 14th.  This is shadowbox I made for her.  It's an outfit that we truly adored him in from Janie and Jack.  The blocks were decorations from his baby shower. Mama Minnie is still smiling as it now hangs on her wall.  ( My apologies for the glare)


And here is another layout I completed.  It's going in my brothers album.  Having Junior home this weekend is the best birthday yet!  I'm giving him an album of layouts and photos of Juniors' first year. Boy is he going to be surprised!!!

Thank you for letting me share my joy on my birthday and sweet nephew with you.

Prima Doll Bag and Tag Swap

I'm bringing you my design for a Prima Doll Bag and Tag Swap I was in over at Scraps of Color hostessed by Mary Joyce.  My partner was Kharmyn better known as KC.  Her theme was Happy Birthday with a black/red combo, which happens to be one of my favorite combos! It was a joy to work with.
