Georgie Paper Collection - Welcome Baby

I just love the colors of this paper collection, the colors were just perfect for this baby book.  I made this for a customer, who's daughter was having her third baby.  She wanted something simple that she could add pictures and embellishments to.  I started out with a craft album that I had in my stash. I covered the front, back and insides with the Georgie papers.  To make things easy I also used the Georgie Picture My Life cards.  I just added them to give her some ideas of things she could do.  I also included the compliments and assortment packs.

Life Happens!  Sorry it has taken me so long to get this posted. I have had the nasty bug, prom, graduation, 3 photo shoots, parties and everyday life.  Things have finally slowed down so here are the paper pansies I made from my inspiration.

I had such fun making these.  I used inks, water colors and color blast to color these. I also tried my trusty dryer sheets to make these.  Really didn't like the dryer sheets as much as the paper ones. I cut out hearts with my Art Philosophy cartridge, you can use any size. I cut mine at 1 and 1 1/2 inches. I used five hearts for each flower. Three whole ones and two half ones.  You will also need a circle to adhere them too. Size of circle depends on the size of hearts you use. You need to cut a little bit off of the tips of your hearts. I colored mine and then used a bone folder and stylus to shape each one.  You can use a quick dry paper glue, glue dots, or double sided tape to adhere the hearts to your circles.  I added the top two first and overlapped them, then I added the two halves next and the bottom one last.  I cut the leaves free handed.  You could use a punch, cricut, or dies to cut your shapes.  Then add a center...I used buttons, pearl brads, and a paper punched heart .

Add a little shading and vein lines with a marker and you are done.  I also shaped the leaves and added a little ink to add some texture to them.  I really like the way they turned out. I want to try some smaller ones . . . . think they would be cute.

These two are my favorite.

Card I made

Hope you guys avoid the "bug" and enjoy the celebrations in your life. Here's a picture of my Beautiful granddaughter for Senior Prom and Graduation.  Seems like yesterday that we were having tea parties and playing dress up.

Motivation Mondays


Are Mondays hard for you?  Do you want to just snuggle in and not start the week just yet?
Me too.....sometimes, but Mondays are the beginnings of a fresh new week.  Mondays kind of set the tone for the rest of the week.  After a week of traveling and the busy weekend of Anniversaries, Mothers Day and Prom, I just want to chill.  I also know that if I do I will miss the opportunity to start my week in a fresh and positive way.  So I decided to go out....outside (nature always makes me feel energized and fresh) I love to just roam around and take pictures of anything I find inspiring. Today my pansies inspired me to get busy!  Checked my CTMH planner, updated To Do List and added my reward for the day!  Today my reward is to create something that has pansies...maybe a card ....or a scrapbook page! 

So go find something to motivate you today! Remember to give yourself a reward....even if it's only 30 mins. to play. (color, paint, dance, sing or soak in a bubble bath) Be good to yourself and have a great productive day!

Tomorrow I will post my creation for you guys to see and maybe share some of my To Do accomplishments.  Stay Curious and Crafty.  Here are a few more of my nature walk pictures from today. Enjoy
