Thinking of You Card from scraps



I'm having so much fun with the Just Sayin' Paper Collection from My Mind's Eye.   I was sent to my room to clean my desk from last night's ustream, and in true A.D.H.D.  fashion I ended up making a card!

Thinking of You card using the Just Sayin' line from My Mind's Eye designed by Tonya Gibbs   #psychomomscrapbooks #MME #Card



For today's card I'm using the Die-Namites Dies Flower Scroll Die.


And the Just Sayin' 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye. 


Last night I shared how I created the flowers that are used on this card.  Here is the video recording from last night's show in case you couldn't make it live:





These papers are so whimsical and fun.  And make a super festive "Cheer Me Up" any occasion card!  I hope I've inspired you to create something in 10 mins. or less with the scraps on your desk. Ready Set GO.....

Thanks for stopping in today!

Ustream September 2014 Follow up

Thank you to everyone who came to the Ustream last night live.  We had an awesome time, and learned lots of great techniques. 


Here was the kit from last night's show.  Thank you to Scrapbooking With M.E. Boutique for providing the kits, and sponsoring the show last night.  I believe there are a few of these kits remaining, if you are interested, please visit the boutique





In the class I taught you how to create these beautiful blossoms that mimic the flowers in the collection. These are fantastic on your layouts because they add visual interest, without the bulk!  They are so whimsy and fun that you can add them to cards, as well as mini albums!  I also shared a new technique for using your Whipped Spackle from the August Kit with Embossing powders to create amazing texture and depth. 




Here is a glimps at the finished layout.  So shabby and whimsical.  Love all the elements. Can't wait to create my next project with this collection.

August 4 Ustream Recap



Wow we had a fantastic time last Monday night. Lots of Yummy techniques using our Gelatos®, Whipped Spackle, Gesso, Gel Medium, and Glaze from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®, Bo Bunny Sentiments, Heidi Swapp Stencil, and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. 


As always thank you to the Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique for managing the sales of the kits, and to their amazing Design Team for promoting and following up with future posts using these products!

In the show we created 4 very different card designs!


On this card, I showed you how to avoid "mud" and create colorful backgrounds.  We mixed the Margarita and Watermelon Gelatos® to create this lovely orange that we mixed with the Whipped Spackle for texture and depth. I also demoed how to resist with Gesso. 


I showed how the Gelatos® look on a black cardstock.  I love that they look just like chalk!  So pretty. This card could easily be a masculine card by changing out the feminine colors. 


On this card, we did a resist with embossing powder.  I also showed you how to combine stamps in the set to create a word cloud effect, and interesting background! 


And finally we used the Gelatos® as a watercolor medium. Sometimes "Mud" is what you really want. Like when I created the tree branch above.   So I showed you how to use the Margarita Mix, Snow Cone, and Raspberry Gelatos® to create a pastel brown. 

Congrats to our winner - Jeanie Ellis on being our winner of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mixed Media Kit!

Here is a link to the Playlist with all three parts of the video tutorial.


In addition to the supplies above, I also used the following:

  • Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® PITT® Stamper's Big Brush Artist Pen in Black
  • Studio Calico - Wood Veneer Bird
  • Cardstock  Black, White, and Cream
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Jacket - James' set
  • Twine
  • Die-Namite Dies Flowering Branch Die
  • Die-Namite Dies Swirly Butterfly
  • Prima Flower
  • Sequins
  • Tissue Paper (white)
  • Butterfly Stamp (brand unknown)
  • Stampendous Dream Text Stamp
Thank you so much to everyone who came to the show live.  I hope those of you joining in the recordings have as much fun as we did live.   Share with me in the comments below how you use your Gelatos®.

The September Ustream Kit is up for sale now!  Make sure you grab yours before it is gone!

Full Bloom Chalkboard for Faber Castell Design Memory Craft



Hi everyone,  I'm super excited to bring  you today's project. I've created this Chalkboard Art that would make an awesome gift for someone.   This project is one of those that started out being one thing and ended up being something totally different.  I started out wanting to make watercolor card gift sets to share with friends. But when I finished the Art Panel it was just too beautiful to turn into a card. It needed to be displayed on a wall!

I have created a process video that is included in the post on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Website.
