Xyron 2018 Design Team

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately.

That stupid influenza bug had me sidelined and wiped out for the last couple of weeks.

It feels good to feel good again.

And now for some Exciting News…

It is such an honor to have been chosen by Xyron to be on their 2018 Xyron Design Team

and work along side these lovely and talented ladies.  It’s going to be a good year!

Rotating Embellishment Organizer

Being a paper crafter at heart, I sometimes wonder…

What’s your favorite way to embellish?

For me it’s flowers, twine, buttons and pearls.

My Rotating Embellishment Organizer also know as Deflecto’s Rotating Carousel Organizer*

is a great way to organize my “go to” embellishments.  (and it looks pretty too.)

The Deflecto Rotating Carousel Organizer with Nine Canisters*   (*affiliate link)

comes with three 6″ bins and six 3″ bins.



It is also available as a Rotating Carousel Organizer with Six 6″ Canisters*.

It’s a great way to organize your supplies.

Little League Champs

Watching Little League Baseball games are fun…

When they move up from tee ball to coach pitch, it’s a really big jump.

They go from playing in the dirt to actually making some good plays.

Watching the growth from the first games to the last is amazing.

This adorable group of 6 year olds made it all the way to the final championship.

And won 1st place.  I couldn’t be  prouder.

(FYI…My layout was made using paper and stickers from Paper House Productions.)

But if you are, you’re in luck!

I fell in love with her red poppies.  (Who wouldn’t?)

And as the saying goes…“There’s No Place Like Home”.

Bon Voyage Vacation Album with Canvas Corp Brands

Sue Eldred's Canvas Corp Brands Bon Voyage Album 6195

My Vacation Bon Voyage album uses a lot of fun papers and embellishments from

Canvas Corp Brands Bon Voyage Collection.  The album was made using the Banner Board Kit

covered with various scrapbook paper.

To make “Our Vacation” stand out, I glued the words from the scrapbook paper onto a piece of chipboard and cut around the oval.  I used black ink around the edges of the chipboard.  I did the same with the “Carte Postale”.   This gives the album dimension and added interest.

I love using the Paris Charms and simply tied the Eiffel Tower (with added jump ring) onto the ribbon.

I created an extra page for the book using a black fluted paper and cardstock.  I decorated the page with additional paper, cut outs and a cute little 3″ x 3″ cream envelope.  The bathing beauty comes from the American Vintage: Vintage Photo’s pack.

Don’t Forget to SMILE Today!

Don't forget to smile 2243

A fun little project to brighten your day.

Along with the Art Play Paintables that I used for the ADORNit Blog Hog,

I also received some great wood pieces, a pad of Blender Basics and some fun Art Play Prints.

Adorn It Blender Basics 2139

To make the project:

  1. Paint the edges of the wood pieces with black acrylic paint.
  2. Glue paper from the Blender Basics pad onto the wood pieces using Mono Adhesive glue.
  3. Trim around the shapes with a craft knife and lightly sand the edges with a sanding block.
  4. Distress the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Ink Applicator.
  5. Glue the two pieces together.
  6. Cut around the inner circle from the “Smile” Art Play Prints and glue to the center.

ADORNit Blog Hop and Giveaway

Have you seen ADORNit’s Art Play Paintables Collection by Lindsay Ostrom?

These papers are a card makers dream.

All these wonderful images without having to buy a ton of stamps.

The papers are perfect for coloring with color pencils, markers or painting

with water colors or inks.

I like to water color with my inks and markers and a waterbrush.

If my inks have a flexible lid, I squeeze color into the lid and use that as my palette.

If not I dab the ink onto a non-porous surface and paint away.
