Sweet Shoppe - Studio Calico

I meant to post these pics earlier this month - these are the layouts I made using the Sweet Shoppe kit from Studio Calico. Crate Paper designed some exclusive papers for Studio Calico and I was lucky enough to get one of the kits to play with!
The colors in this kit were so much fun - thank you, Studio Calico and Crate Paper! :)

I've been missing a good part of the dad has been in the hospital with heart problems. The doctors put some stints in his heart and he is doing much better. We are hoping he gets to come home today. I'm so thankful.

More CHA projects - Webster's Pages Country Estate

I so enjoyed working with Country Estate by Webster's Pages for their CHA booth....thought I would share my layouts with this gorgeous line. So soft and feminine.

Some new faves in this release - the canvas tags and the return of the cameos.

Check out these adorable little birdies and the new pins.....

I pleated the fabric ribbon and layered it with the bloomers, a nice combo, I think. :)

Love this one so much....this was a so-so photo and a little photoshop and wowsers!!! I'm showing the new netting and transparencies here in this layout.

I was so proud - this one made it into the Webster's Pages product catalog!

I did a little scrapping this weekend and hope to start a new painting soon....I've really missed painting with the CHA craziness going on. I'll share some more CHA projects this week. See you soon.

CHA DecoArt Projects

I have returned! What a great time I had a CHA......I have a little it bad that I was secretly so proud to see so many people walking around with their version of my cupcake canvas from the DecoArt's booth. I was so excited to design their mixed media make and take and Beth and I designed mini canvases for their booth. Sorry these pictures aren't the best....they were rushed because I had to mail them out quickly. Thanks to DecoArt for wonderful product to work with!!!

Dimensional Cupcake Canvas......this uses so many wonderful DecoArt products! The thickening medium through a stencil tinted with Glamour Glaze Paint, DecaPage the new decopage glue, SnowTex for icing with more Glamour Glaze drizzled on top.

A sweet little girl canvas with Americana Acrylics and dimensional flowers, made with book pages painted with Glamour Glaze paint - the finish is really nice - Triple Thick Glaze mixed with Gold Metallic gorgeous!

A bit of mixed media collage using paint, thickening medium, gesso and DecaPage glue.

Some leftover letters on canvas - a layer of Texture Fine with Glamour Paint. The heart is Texture Crackle with a bit of Glamour Paint to highlight.

Lots of texture here - my little cupcake nest. I attempted to pipe some leaves by mixing some Texture Fine with Americana Acrylics - they blended together a little more than I wanted but it still works. The tree bark is Textured Stucco.
Americana Acrylics with Texture Crackle through a stencil.....embellished with a chipboard teacup. I used the DecaPage Glue for the doily.

I met so many friends, old and new at was awesome....I'll share some more about that later. I'm still so See you soon!

Pages of my Book.....GDT

*****pre-posted while I'm away at CHA*****

I was delighted to be invited to guest with these lovely ladies this month......Pages of my Book......absolutely wonderful inspiration!! Thank you, Poki and Kaori!!

I created this layout from the prompt and sketch inspiration:

I used my water soluable wax crayons to color the resist gave a rich pop of color.

I adore mix and favorite combination......just bits and pieces from my stash.

I hope you check out the Pages of my Book site for more inspiration!
