August Sneak Peek

August is almost here and I can't believe how quickly summer time zooms by! I am doing something a little different this month. Instead of a big papercrafting kit, I'm putting together a project kit that has everything you need to make an awesome album to celebrate your favorite road trip. I really want to make something that is a little more affordable for you in these tough economic times. The album is in the shape of a route sign and is approximately 12 x 6 inches with four thick watercolor canvas sheets inside. There are lots of goodies to add additional pages and with your purchase you will receive color instructions and pictures of my completed album for inspiration. I am featuring the new Making Memories Passport line as well as some Doodlebug Designs cuteness. The full reveal will be on August 1st at 8 pm Eastern Standard Time. Hope to see you there!

Using the Kits!

I just get so excited to play with these kits! I have made a birthday card for my mother in law and an inspiring mixed media piece too. I've put more pics in the Flickr group.

Here is the birthday card:I used acrylic paint and glaze to pain the front and back of the card a rich yellow and attached a long strip of the patterned paper to cover the length of the card. Inside is a cute cut out from the Britannica book page and the word enjoy.

Here is the mixed media piece called Far Away:

Here I used the bingo card, which is made from thick chipboard and is perfect for putting some lovelies on it and hanging on the wall. I snipped out some Future Librarians of America from one of the yearbook pages in the kit, used one of the super cute yo-yo's with one of metal vintage buttons, I layered the trims and sewed them together to hang off the bottom, and cut out some of the words from one of the military yearbook pages for the title. This piece speaks to me of woman's struggle for equal rights, as well as my own personal struggles. A positive message to remind me of the past and prepare me for the future.

Thanks for looking and have a WONDERFUL 4th of July!!!!
