My project today was inspired by a quote from the book Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman (the quote is also in the movie). It’s part of a letter that one of the character writes and the portion I added to my project says, “Sometimes, when the wind is warm or the crickets sing…I dream of Read more ..

Creative embellishments chippies are so much fun to work with and so versatile! For this canvas, I simply applied a light gesso, then heat embossed to give them a wonderfully enameled look that makes the stand out from my project. As it happens, CE’s founder and head designer, Nicolle, is my best friend. She’s a Read more ..

Creative Embellishments is one of the sponsors for this month’s CSI, Color, Stories, Inspiration challenges, so several of us have been guest designing for some of their case files. 😀 They offer fun, inspiring challenges, with lots of prize ops, including the $30 gift voucher to the CE store that’s up for grabs! 😀 I Read more ..

This year, Alex participated in the Penn State York Bridge Building Contest and came in 3rd! Everyone was pleasantly surprised since it’s rare for Freshmen to place at all. Most of the winners tend to be Juniors and Seniors each year. 😀 He was so proud of his creation (which shattered during testing, which happens Read more ..

Sorry I’m so late publishing today’s post. I’ve been caught up with a lot of things revolving around my children, who were the inspiration behind the project I’m sharing and underestimated how long it would take me to create the project.

Since my youngest 3 children attend cyber school, we were able to have 3 of the children in a single school photo. 😀 For this piece, I fussy cut to remove the background, then set the pic aside until the end of my project. I started out by adhering my first layer of chippies and coating Read more ..

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and this year, I figured I would hand make some treat bags for the kiddos and make each of them unique. The one I’m sharing today was created for my daughter, Madison, using Prima papers, I am Roses flowers, and of course my favorite Creative Embellishments laser cut chipboard Read more ..

I love the versatility of Creative Embellishments 6×6 panels! For my two tags, I used the chipboard panels as a mask for the background with a Tattered Angels mist and can still use the pieces on future projects! You can even use them as stencils with modeling paste or textured mediums to create a background with Read more ..

Simplicity is the name of the game around my house these days. With school back in session and new undertakings, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, so my project for today is an easy to create/recreate, mixed media canvas that I find very soothing. It was inspired by this month’s challenge image as well. 😀 It Read more ..
