Hello everyone! Today I'm playing along with this weeks Simon Says "Anything Goes" Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. I've created a card using patterned paper from 7 Gypsies Gypsy Moments collection. I used the Express Yourself paper from the collection for the upper half of my card base and then added a Thankful journaling card from the A Novel Thought paper to the center of my card.

To finish things up I created a little handmade spiral flower with a pearl center and added two little leaves to the right side of my journaling card. Thanks for visiting!

Baby Girl Canvas Album


Hello everyone! Last Tuesday I shared the baby girl letterbox tray I created for Canvas Corps newest release called Sugar & Spice. Today I'm sharing the second project I created for the release, which is this cute little mini canvas album. I used the Sugar & Spice Baby Girl Fabric Panel that matches the paper collection to create my album cover. The natural canvas and black art is the perfect surface for adding ink, paint, mist, fabric markers and more. I kept my album cover pretty simple and just added some pick stitching around the edges and added a pink canvas flower to the bottom right that I created with some mini canvas rounds. I also created a few matching pages for the inside of my little mini album with the Sugar & Spice Mix & Match Pad. With 16 different papers, fabrics and prints the mix & match pads give you lots to choose from and they are very versatile. You can check out all the different mix and match pads in the shop HERE

I left a spot for photos to be added on each page and added a few different baby girl quotes and embellishments to each photo spot.

I fussy cut different images from the sampler paper and patterned papers to make fun little embellishments. I also added tiny charms to my photo spots with pieces of waxed cord.

Last week the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew shared 10 creative ways to use Canvas Corp's fabrics over at The Creative Studio. If you think fabric is just for sewing, think again. Check out all the creative ways you can use all the different 12″x 12″ and 13″x 17” fabric panels HERE. Thanks for visiting!

Baby Girl Themed Letterbox Painters Tray


Hello everyone! Last week I shared a sneak peek of this Letterbox Painters Tray I created for Canvas Corp's Sugar & Spice release. I had so much fun creating this! Today I will be sharing a few close up photos along with a few details about my painters tray. Each spot on the tray is a perfect place to add just a touch of paper, buttons, ribbon, pins, flowers, etc.

The mix and match pad gives you a wide range of papers, fabric, printed fabric and more to choose from. I cut out pieces from the sampler and colored them with some colored markers. The sampler paper has plenty of words, sayings and letters to say what you want to say to the little one.

The mini clothespins are just the right size for the little openings in the tray. They add lots of dimension and are perfect for clipping on all those extra little touches.

To add more dimension to my painters tray I created some canvas flowers with Canvas Corps Mini Round Canvas shapes. I cut the two round canvas shapes into spirals and then rolled them up to create flowers. After I had them rolled up I misted and watercolored them to match the patterned paper. See photo below. 

You can leave some of the boxes with simple little details while others you can add a bunch stamping or embellishments. I hope you enjoyed my painters tray today! I will be back in a day or two to share the baby girl mini album I created with this collection for the Sugar & Spice release. 

Other Supplies: Water Color Paint- Green & Peach / Close To My Heart Ink Pads- Black & Pink / Close To My Heart Colored Markers / SRM Stickers- Baby / Buttons / Mini Tags

Canvas Corp's Newest Release: Sugar & Spice


Hello everyone! Canvas Corp just released their newest collection today called Sugar & Spice and it's a cute one. You can check out the entire collection along with a few projects over at The Creative Studio HERE. I have two different projects being shared over at the blog that I created with the collection. The first is a cute little mini album/brag book that I created with the Baby Girl Fabric Panel.  I absolutely loved creating this, the printed canvas panel was so easy to use and made a fun sewing project.

The second project I created with the Sugar & Spice collection is this cute little Letterbox Painters Tray. I had so much fun using different patterned papers, embellishments, mini fabric canvas shapes, clothespins, and stamps to fill each and every spot.

Canvas Corp has a great range of papers and prints to create the perfect collection for you. Be on the look out for these and more baby girl projects over at The Creative Studio over the next couple of days. I will also be sharing more about these two projects here in a few days. Thanks for visiting.

Sail Away


Hello everyone! Today I'm playing along with this weeks Simon Says Make It Masculine Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. I rarely create any kind of masculine cards so this challenge was a bit challenging for me. To keep things from getting to complicated I decided to go with a black and ivory color combo. I used a black & ivory chevron patterned paper as my background and add some ivory stitching to the outside edge. 

I used the cute masculine little ships wheel image as my main focal image and layered a black piece of patterned paper behind it along with a text image. To tie the nautical theme all together I added a large title towards the bottom of the card. I think the images and the color combo I used really made it a masculine card. Even though I don't create many masculine cards I  really had fun with this challenge. Thanks for visiting.

Boots & Saddle


Hello everyone! Today I have three different cards to share that I created with Canvas Corp Brands newest release, Boots & Saddle. I just love this collection! If you like adding a western touch or just a sweet and simple country vibe to your projects, this collection is the perfect choice. You can check out the entire collection along with a few projects over at The Creative Studio HERE or over at the Canvas Corp Brands Shop HERE. I'm sharing a quick look at the Boots & Saddle Mix 'n Match Pad below. 

The Boots & Saddle Mix 'n Match Pad is filled with almost the entire Boots & Saddle Paper Collection, a Boots & Saddle Printed Fabric piece and matching burlap and flute sheets. The fabric is also available by itself in a 13×17 Panel as well. Below are the three different cards I created with this collection. Check them out. 

I just adore this first card. I used one of the sayings from the Boots & Saddle Sayings On Ivory Paper as my main focal image and added some burlap along with some Tattered Angles Mists and embellishments. 

To create this second card I used another one of the sayings from the Boots & Saddle Sayings On Ivory Paper as my main focal image. I really wanted to add some color to this one so I used some blue burlap, Tattered Angles Gerber Baseboard Mist, and a multicolored ribbon.  

Just like the first two cards I used another one of the sayings as the main focal image. I kept this one pretty simple and just added some Navajo Print Paper as my background. I also added some vellum behind the saying along with some Red Hemp Rope. I really loved creating with this collection, I even have a few more cards and projects in the works.  I hope you enjoyed my three cards today. Thanks for visiting!
