Happy Anniversary | Hero Arts 45th Anniversary Celebration Challenge


Hi! It's an exciting time to be a Hero Arts fan. We're in the midst of their 45th anniversary celebration, so in true party fashion, we're having a challenge for it!

This month at A Blog Named Hero we want to see your celebration cards! Anniversary, Party, Congrats, Birthday - Here's my card, a shout out to one of my favorite companies on their milestone. 




The design team is also using their all time favorite Hero Arts products this month in celebration. This background stamp is both the first background stamp I ever owned, and my favorite of all time. 


I stamped the background with versamark sticky ink onto a panel of Hero Arts Adriatic card stock and then heat embossed the image with Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder. I colored in some of the open florals with a shimmer pen, and some of the others with some pearlescent watercolors. 


My sentiment was stamped from another ride or die favorite set - Everyday Sayings. It just has every sentiment you could need in great fonts. Sometimes you get a great stamp set, but the sentiments included are very specific even though the images are not. That's where this set is perfect! You can use images from a sympathy set, and slap a thank you greeting on it. 


To finish I added some nuvo drop flower centers and adhered everything down to a white a2 sized card base. Head over to A Blog Named Hero to see what the rest of the design team created and get all the details on how to enter the challenge.

Funny Home Office Vinyl Sign with Jillibean Soup


Hi Everyone! I wanted to pop in with a quick post today to share this fun and very true sign I made for my home office space. Jillibean Soup is having a mix the media challenge over on their blog as part of their International Scrapbooking Day festivities and I absolutely adore her SVG files and the mix the media line is so fun! 

This was made with a mix the media metal sign blank I got at Joann Crafts, some permanent vinyl I had in my stash, and some paper strips from the farmhouse stew collection which I am currently obsessed with.

My Sister, My Friend | Scrapbook Layout with Jillibean Soup


 Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! I've got another layout from the International Scrapbooking Day festivities. This one was the result of the special Freaky Fast Friday challenge at the Scraproom with a floral theme from Scrapbook & Cards Today and an inspiration photo from Jillibean Soup.


When I see fringe I either think Party or Country - I didn't have any good party photos I wanted to scrapbook so I went with the Country theme and grabbed a photo of me and my sister at a Brad Paisley concert a few years ago. Since we're going country I choose the Farmhouse Stew collection from Jillibean Soup for my main kit.


I used the 4.5x6.5 prompt on the freaky fast friday challenge to create this block of fringe, but cutting 2 pieces of kraft card stock to that size. One served as my base and the other I cut into strips and fringed using fringe scissors.



My embellishments were a mix of things from the collection kit but also some handmade leaves and flowers using the new We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill. This was my first time using it.

I love it but my only complaint is I assumed it would draw AND cut out the images, but the cut feature wasn't a part of the SVGs (at least the first batch I tried).

So I ran it through my brother scan n cut. It was able to pick out the lines and successfully cut out the flower images because there was enough contract in color between the foil lines and the yellow card stock. The leave images however weren't as simple. One of them foiled with some nice bold lines. The machine detected and cut that one out fine. But the other two foiled with thinner lines (not by my choosing) and it couldn't distinguish the outline, therefore wouldn't cut. I fussy cut these.



To finish I added my title to the required 1x3 inch strip from the freaky fast formula, and added some little sticker and sequin embellishments around the page. And there ya have it!

The Smile Says it All | Echo Park Magical Adventure Layout


I'm catching up on all of my international scrapbooking day challenges and clearing out some stash before the big Great Lakes Mega Meet this weekend in my home town, so here is layout 1. 

This layout uses the Echo Park Magical Adventure collection kit with some embellishments added from Momenta and Thickers. I followed a sketch from The Scraproom with a Disney theme challenge from Scrapbook and Cards Today


My embellishments mostly came from the collection kit. I fussy cut these faux park tickets from a sheet of the patterned paper and added minnies' bow from the sticker collection. To add a little interest, I did some hand stitched along on of my paper strips. 


My two-piece title was a combination of thickers and stamp from the coordinating stamp set, heat embossed onto some black card stock. I added some of the coordinating enamel dots for added texture. 


I added a third embellishment cluster using some assorted stickers from my collection. These come from Momenta and Pinkfresh Studio - two new to me favorites!


And there ya have it. Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey, find more crafty fun on my Instagram and Facebook Page
