Paint Day

Paint Day

To celebrate my friend Monica’s birthday we went to Muse paint in Annapolis and did a paint day party for her. Here’s Laura and I getting ready to create are wood signs we had.  They even serve wine and beer.  =)

Everyone great time just visiting and celebrating her birthday. First we stained in the wood with watered-down acrylic paint.

Then we added words of our choice, I totally went off the rail and did my own thing.  I was thinking about where I actually had space in my house to hang something and it’s pretty much my craft room. So I did mine with this in mind.  My four words were dream, create, share, inspire. We freehand painted the letters. We’re supposed to do arrows but I did this swipe or swish thing at the front and back with the paint. And then I did a doodling outline rather than painting a square around the outside of the picture. I’m rather pleased with how it turned out.

What a great thing to do for someone’s birthday.  We had a great time  just enjoying each other while we get to paint, which is one of Monica’s favorite things to do.

Layout for the day – Prickly Pear from Studio Sus – you can get this workshop with a $25.00 order.  With the directions, you can make 6 different layouts.  Check out the pages and supplies needed in my FB Customer Group or on my Class Page.

 

BOGO for today:

 

I truly believe these emotions blends have SUPER POWERS!  If you haven’t tried these two,  snatch up this BOGO because you will love them!  You can choose your mood with the emotions oils! You no longer have to settle for that waking up on the wrong side of the bed mood…just slap some oils on make your mood better!!

I have worn Passion as a perfume. I get so many compliments on how good I smell. Unlike my old perfumes….I get emotional and stress relieving benefits and more from my oily “perfumes”!!  I love having the Passion in a roller and I have one in my bathroom where I get ready and one in my purse. Passion is also a favorite for when I am scrapbooking because it helps ignite my creativity!

Console….this oil is exactly what it says….consoling. I like having this with me in my purse too because it comes in handy when I am feeling stressed or worried.

TIP: I order spares of Console to have on hand for my friends that experience tragedy and even death of a loved one. More than one friend has later thanked me for gifting this blend to them and told me they don’t know how it works but it really does help them feel better. Nothing can stop a hurting heart completely when dealing with loss but this blend somehow helps you feel that hope and comfort. Sending Console is so much more beneficial to the recipient than sending flowers.

Traveling and BOGOs!

Traveling and BOGOS

Hi there It’s been a bit since I posted. I’ve had the chance to travel back to the west to Utah, Salt Lake City to be specific. I went to Salt Lake City for the CTMH convention and I’m super excited with all of the fun product that will be coming August 1st . It was very cool to be able to go and get a tour of the close to my heart home office . It’s my first time even though I’ve been with the company for 17 years .

I had a great time playing a game with my daughter and the infamous sticky boy from conventions. The close to my heart home office staff hide Sticky Boys around the convention area for us to find. Sarah Grace’s fascinated with this so we play a game where I take little sticky boys (and girls now)and I post up and ask her “where is sticky boy now?”!

Then coming home for about 48 Hours actually less than. I hopped on a plane to Panama City Florida to meet up with my friend Joanne and help her with her crop in Mississippi. We drove from Florida all the way to Mississippi. It was an amazing trip with her and a friend Doris.

I spent the weekend meeting a wonderful group of ladies at the Crop Connection crop.  They did an awesome job with the theme of “Super Heros”.  The ladies welcomed in to their fold and I enjoyed getting to meet and work with some of them.

 

 

 

 

After that , we did the road trip back to Florida where we stopped to DeSoto National Forest and other places to get pictures to make great layouts with a new Cricut Cartridge that will be released on August 1!!

I went to stay close to Destin Florida with my friend Karen to help her with a few business things. She’s just gotten her massage license and starting a new time in her life. It was wonderful to catch up and meet her friends and see the spot that she’s working at.  I realized that I don’t have pictures of Karen and the spa even though I thought I did!  I’ll have to check with her to see.  Here are some pictures of Destin.  I then hopped a flight home on Tuesday to return to Crazy heat in Maryland. It was wonderful to see my family. I really did miss them after being gone over 2 weeks. I’ve spent the last week trying to catch up with everything but I got so far behind on when I was gone.

Oh Frap – It’s the Last Day

Oh Frap – It’s the Last Day

All good things must come to an end it’s the last day of the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop!  =(  I’ve had such a great time playing and going through all the amazing cards posted by fellow coffee lovers.  Be sure to check it out.

This is a z-fold card uses a combo of different products.  The paper is from the Prickly Pear Paper Pack.  The birthday stamps are a retired set from CTMH.  The “Oh Frap” is from Stamplorations.  The coffee cup and whipped topping from Sugar Pea Designs.  The girl is Kimmy from Unity Stamps.  I love showcasing how well CTMH products work with everyone’s products.  You can’t go wrong.

Cut “Oh Frap” two times.  Once in Sea Glass and once in Black.  Layer slightly offset so that you have the black looking like a shadow behind the Sea Glass.  Put the coffee cup and “Oh Frap” on the top part of the Z-Fold so they hang off.

When you open the card up, you can see the three different panels unfold.  The rest of the story comes out.  Great card to have on hand when you forget someone’s birthday.  The girl is “Kimmie” by Angie Blom at Unity Stamps.  I love her girls! They are amazing.  Kimmie is one of the ones with coffee and she fits the bill for a summer girl for this bloghop.

I stamped her on the CTMH watercolor paper which is amazing for stamping and watercoloring.  Stamp the image using Memento ink to prevent the bleed.  I used the CTMH watercolor palette and the watercolor brushes to paint Kimmie.

Good Days Start with Coffee

Good Days Start with Coffee

I had a fun time making this card.  Been in a shaker cardmaking mode for a bit and this was great fun to use the coffee beans in the shaker with various toppings from Queen and Company.   Another card for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I used Stamplorations coffee mug to cut out the center of the shaker from No Worries paper from CTMH.  Sapphire is the background cardstock (25% off this month).  Cut transparency out  and put on the back of the paper creating the window.  For the coffee beans to work, you need to double layer 3D foam tape.  Create a box on the Sapphire cardstock and add your shaker fillings in.

Mount the top of the card on the 3D foam tape.  Stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things – LLD Perk Up in Sapphire on Lagoon paper.  Cut out the  “and you”.    Put the sentiments as shown.

Some of the beans are a little big and don’t shake around very well.  Love the brown and blue combination.  The card smells amazing with the coffee beans in it.  =)

Perk Up!

Perk Up:

Perk Up is a stamp set “Kimmie Girl” from Unity Stamps.  It’s part of the Angiegirl collection.  Be forewarned, they are all super cute!  I picked this set up to use for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop because she looks like she’s ready for summer.

It’s all stamped on the CTMH watercolor paper, which is a smooth watercolor paper that allows for great movement of the watercolor and you can layer it.  I stamped Kimmie and the sentiment in Memento ink and masked her using masking fluid.  Then created the background with the watercolor palette from CTMH.

Once the background was dried, I rubbed of the masking fluid and painted Kimmie with the palette.  Take the CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush and go over the hearts on her shirt and on the cup to give them a little sparkle.  If you like using Wink of Stella, you need to check out the Shimmer Brushes from CTMH.  Better price point, more shimmer, and more juice!

Happiness in a Cup!

Happiness in a Cup!

This super fun card is “happy” because of all the bright colors and that for some of us, coffee is happiness.  Love the smell of fresh coffee beans and coffee brewing.  This card is linked to the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  Stop and check out all the great cards. Better yet, whip out your own coffee project and join the fun.   It’s also made using the Freshly Made Sketches 292.

The papers are Prickly Pear.  The colors in the paper pack are nice and bright, just right for Summer.  Love the rainbow paper in the pack.  

The sketch is simple and fun to make.  The dies for the circles are from CTMH.  The coffee cup is Sugar Pea Design’s Coffee To Go Cup die set.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations Coffee Happy.

 No Worries Family Layout

Wanted to share another great layout from the workshop you can get free when you place a $25.00 order.  Cocoa cardstock is the base for all of the layouts in the workshop and you can get it for 25% off.  The No Worries sequins and the Enamel and Glitter Blue Dots Duo add the bling to the pages.

The title “Family” comes from the No Worries Compliments.  The mix in the Compliments is kraft chipboard and stickers.  On the arrows, put a piece of the scraps from one of the background and texture papers.

You can add flip flaps – 4×6, 3×4 and 3×3 – to get more pictures on the layout.   Here’s some close ups of the different elements from the pages that I just love.  You always need a layout for family events.

Store these great layouts in our wonderful albums.  Get your albums this month Buy One Get One 50% off.  =)

Dear Coffee:

This is my 3rd link for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  It’s created from the Little Dreamer Workshop Your Way paper pack.  I used the Sugar Pea Challenge for the  pattern.

Cut up the Picture My Life sheets.  Trim one of the backgrounds down and one with the unicorn down so they will fit on the card as shown.  Use the CTMH clear shimmer brush to color the unicorn in so he’s magical.  Use the Gold Shimmer Brush on his mane and tail.

The coffee cup comes from the Jack Cardmaking Stamp with dies.  Just love that I have a coffee cup with a die to use on any card I make!  Use 3D foam tape under the cup for dimension.

The sentiment “Dear Coffee” comes from I’m not sure where!  I can’t find the stamp on my desk!  Imagine that!  LOL.  Will update the post when I find it.

The little gems – Little Dreamer Glitter Gems are just awesome.  Last Seasonal Expressions, the Sugar Rush Glitter Gems stock sold out before the end of the Seasonal Expressions 1.  Another great embellishment to not miss out on and stock up on.  Bitty Sparkles are used to add little sparkles here and there.

Thanks A Latte for Teachers!

Thanks A Latte for Teachers

There are people we can’t live without and teachers are one of those peeps.  For the end of the year gifts, I got this idea from my friend Erika, when she made our PTO gifts.  I added my own flair to it and created these gift bags for the teachers.  They are a wonderful combination of summer colors, stamps, and dies from Close to My Heart, Sugar Pea Designs, and STAMPlorations.  It also it into the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I got several gift cards and Starbucks Frap cups.  I filled the cups with some left over Easter basket filling.

Then I put the gift cards into the cup with a straw after filling them out.

I put the cup into some cello bags with some chocolate and watermelon sours, because I wanted to tie in Summer.   I made the tags with a die from Tag o’ Coffee die set.   There is a sentiment square you can cut with the set that fits right into the tag.  Sweetness for ease.  “Thanks A Latte” comes from Stamplorations.  I used Sugar Pea Designs for the latte cup (both the stamps and matching dies).   All paper is from CTMH.  All of these companies are Super Sponsors for the bloghop!

To tie in Summer, I used a retired stamp set from CTMH for “You’re one in a melon” with the watermelon.  Used CTMH watercolor paper and the Raspberry Ink Pad to watercolor “Melon” in.  Used Black Liquid Pearl to create the seeds.  For the latte cup, I wanted to give the illusion of the darker espresso on the bottom of the cup, so I used the Cocoa Ink Pad and watercolor brush to do this.   Create the whipped cream using White Liquid Pearl.  Just before it’s dry, put the transparency lid (cut with the dies) on it to look like whipped cream smooshed in the lid.

The Good Times!

On a side note since the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop goes til the end of the month, here’s another No Worries Layout!  I still have A LOT to show you!

Another great layout that you can make with the Studio Sus  No Worry Workshop Guide that you can get for free when you purchase $25.00 or more from my website!  I love having directions for my layouts.  The bases of the layouts are Cocoa Cardstock which is on sale right now for 25% off!!

Here is the left page.  The paper is this pack is making it the #1 seller for Close To My Heart so I’m predicting our supplies may not make it through August 31, 2017, when the Seasonal Expression is retired.  Here is the right page:

Here are some close ups of the clusters of embellishments from the No Worries Compliments and pieces of paper that are dove tailed to make pennants. The sequins are awesome with the wood grain pattern on them.

Everything about this layout is just “so perfect” as this kraft chipboard says.
