Create From Your Soul

It's been a bit since I've shared here! But I'm back with this great wall piece featuring Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard.

Saw the words and had to have them! Saw the Pearl Strings and had to have them! And everytime I see them I love them more....I know, I'm so weird!! LOL

All shimmery! I love the shimmer and it stays where it's put, unlike glitter LOL 



For the details and close ups head on over to the  Southern Ridge Blog and check it out. Don't forget to have a look at my amazing team mates projects created  using SRTC chipboard too! You will be inspired!

Thanks for being here and have a great week!

Christmas Ornaments in June

I think it has been established that I love the beach/ocean/tropical and would create with that theme all the time! I'm very fortunate that lots of my fave companies have that theme! :)

A few weeks ago I shared my first ornament created with fabulous Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard, you can go back to check out that one HERE
I had a few more pieces left over and decided I needed another ornament. And here is the second one that I created.


The wooden tag is from SRTC and the wood like finish is actually a piece of napkin that I got from PEI last June. I used DW Gel Medium to put it on and it pulled apart in just the right places!

The full wooden tag.

This is where the napkin tore a bit and you can see the wood underneath.

The lobster is embossed in Candy Red and then again with the Fractured Ice over it. The crab is just done in the Candy Red.

Look at that gorgeous little crustacean!

The center word blocks are from Kaisercraft Beach Shack Collection and the baby seashells just had to be added.

I do have one more tag to work on and I plan on creating another beach themed ornament for my Christmas tree :)

Supplies Used:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week everyone!

Putting on My Top Hat

Almost the middle of June already!? I am loving the long days and how light it stays out! I also like that it's light out when I leave for work at 5:30am!
I finally used one of my favorite pieces! I wanted the top hat, I ordered the top hat....then all the ideas I had for the top hat were gone! Thankfully I had a new plan for it.
I layered TH paper, Baked Texture, and a hint of DecoArt Foil and then jazzed it up with the pretty shimmery butterflies.






For all the details and the list of all the products I used head on over to the Southern Ridge Trading Company Blog 

Have a fantastic week everyone!

A Little Under the Sea Love

I guess it's obvious that I love beach/ocean/tropical related things! All year round but especially when it's actually beautiful and sunny out! I am so grateful that so many talented people have created products with these themes!
Just a quick share today. I played with some Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Collection, a canvas board, TCW Stencil from Rebekah Meier's designs and the glorious Baked Texture from Seth Apter and Emerald Creek.





Love love love this stencil from Rebekah Meier Designs and TCW.

Added a very light hint of glitter from a new product called Glitter Kiss in Summer Beach


List of products used:
Baked Texture in Patina Oxide
TCW Stencil Under The Sea
Graphic 45 Sun Kissed Collection

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

It's All About the Beach

I took a little bit of time to just play with some products that are not getting the attention they deserve!! LOL
I really love the square canvas boards for creating on! I think it might be my new favorite base.
I didn't do any step outs on this one, I just played and embossed and stenciled.



Covered the board with Graphic 45 paper from the Sun Kissed collection. Used Ranger Ink Embossing Fluid and the gorgeous under the sea stencil  from Rebekah Meier and TCW. Then I layered a card from the G45 card pack and fussy cut out the sand dollars and starfish from the Sun Kissed collection.

Love the Baked Texture Patina Oxide

Added a hint of glitter with the new two tone Glitter Kiss
I think I could create beach related projects all year around! 

Thanks for stopping by and I'm always thankful for your support.

Have a great day!
