NBUS - day 2

Here is another card using old Webster's Pages Vellum papers which I have had forever!

I layered the vellum over patterned paper to make a card.

Adding this to DJKardkreations NBUS day 2.

Thank you for visiting!


NBUS stands for Never Before Used Schtuff.

This is a challenge going on over at DJKardkreations for 10 days!

Th idea is to use things you have not used - old or new!

I made a simple tag card using these fun cupcake stickers which have been sitting in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapping again

I was having troubles being creative with paint yesterday so I scrapped instead. We have so many photos of our granddaughter which I need to start putting on layouts!

This was the first photo of me and LJ. I cannot beleive it was almost 6 months ago. She has changed so much since that day!

G45 Precious Memories was the perfect paper for this!

I was inspired by this sketch at StuckSketches

Thank you for visiting! I appreciate your kind words! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Cards for Mom

My mom is now in a nursing home which  is a big adjustment for both my sister who was caring for her and for her. I am 2 1/2 hours away so only get up there every two weeks or so. In between I have been sending her cards.

When we were younger my mom painted using oil paints. Covered bridges were her thing. I always stayed away from art. She is so proud of what I am doing now so I try to send her hand painted cards.

I thought I would send fall to her so I made this leaf card.

Scarecrows, Corn rows

Fall is approaching. I have seen leaves starting to turn and temps have been cooling. TIme to change the decorations!

This fall canvas began with a layer of various pattern papers. This is a great way to use up 6 x 6 sheets.  I added paints, inks, stamps, stencils and painted a fun pumpkin. Finished with this lovely quote.

Mod Podge is perfect for each layer and the final layer protects this from fading, dust and the elements.

Thank you for visiting and sharing this glimpse of fall with me!

So busy!

Returned home from two weeks with our 5 month old granddaughter! She is just so precious! Trying to crawl, making the best faces, and on the go constantly.

We are getting ready to head to the cottage for the long weekend. I have time to share this art journal page I made. This is for a Canvas Corp Brand traveling art journal. I misted tissue paper and stamped flower images. I cut them out and adhered them to add more dimension. Love the finished look.

Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your kind words.
