Heart Frame

Valentines Frame

As Valentines is just around the corner, I am trying to be a bit festive. This holiday always seems to sneak up fast and then it’s gone.



I decided to alter this chicken wire heart frame with the perfect Mon Amour Collection from Graphic 45, and paired it with some fabulous Botanical Blooms from Petaloo.


And yes for the record I did fussy cut some of the flowers and butterflies out, so to add some little extra special touches to the piece.

I used some rock candy crackle to give texture to the chipboard along with some powder in the crackles to help highlight the details.



So I hope all is loved and have that special Valentine’s this year and every year. Thank you for stopping by.

At Creativations this past January, while walking around, I came across this interesting display at the Ranger booth. I totally thought of Olivia.



I know deep down in my heart that Olivia’s art will take her places, and she will be my little world traveler.


The display fits perfect with her little artsy personality. I did a bunch of background work and details with crackle paste, and stencils. And added the paint brushes to incorporate the brushes in the photo.


I love the monochromatic theme to this layout, very rustic looking and the brown hues of the Writers Block collection work perfect.


Take a chance, take flight and soar high above the beaten path.


Thank you for stopping by today, Enjoy!

Timeless Memories

Timeless Memories

Hello All, I want to share a fun sassy layout today. The kids and I went to the “Tall Ships of Duluth” this past summer. It was a beautiful sunny hot day, which is not normal for the shores of Lake Superior. So I gave in and let them get a giant palm tree smoothie.


So when I pulled the papers out from the 7 dots collection is said how fun is this! Totally matches the palm trees and Maksim’s shirt is perfect!


I did a fair amount of work and prep on this layout.. I used the circles stamp on the background to add more details to the paper and thought it would be super cool to use straws to pop and add dimension. I actually wrapped wire around the straws to pull more of the doodle out of the paper.


Along with wrapping the straws, wrapped the title chippie and the frame work and even threw some extra wire in there with the flowers.


As far as the frame goes, I left the base grunge square frame the natural color it was and used 2 different shades of embossing powder to add some shine and color. I didn’t want to completely cover the frame so I sporadically dabbed the embossing medium on before coating with the powder. Then I just heat set it.


Such a fun layout to make and great memories that day.

Jack Frost

Jack Frost

As the days shorten and the long nights of winter settle in, you can always find Jack Frost all around you. Whether it’s in the Fall as he dances around changing the colors of the leaves to vibrant tones of reds, oranges and yellows or in the dead of winter, you will find this magical and sometimes mischievous persona walking through the forest leaving his mark of frost, ice, snow and sleet.


On those cold winter mornings, waking up from the warmth of your bed, you can find the fern-like patterns of frost on the windows. You know Jack has been prancing around spreading his scenic wintry fun.


So when the chill and frosty weather is nipping at your toes, you can always count on Jack being close by, causing some wintry mayhem and blustery cold weather.
