Heart This

So its no secret that I love my fiance…Duh we wouldn’t be getting married otherwise!! lol! But, we realized after a super sad time, a friend passed away, that we had almost no photos together… we sat there at his funeral and watched the slide show full of love, smiles and happy times. At that time we realized that we had next to no photos of us doing everyday normal things.. we had the ones where we had a photographer take photos but almost none of us just doing everyday things together. So I made it my goal that we would fill our phones with photos of us doing the everyday! Jamie laughs every time I pull out my phone, but he gets it, he wants the same moments documented as I do. Plus he knows he is marrying a woman who likes to put everything onto a layout and show the world, so this will be his forever anyways!!

There are two reasons i told you that story… 1) the photo used in this layout is super random…. we were with our niece at a play park and i thought to myself “self, this would be a good time to document and remember!” 2)I wanted to remind you all that the everyday is just as important as this perfect, set up moments where you look perfect and exactly as you want to! The everyday messy hair, no make up photos are important as well! so take them! remember the everyday:)

so here it is… my next layout that was inspired by the everyday… this layout will remind me of a normal everyday moment every time I walk past it:)

Here is the full layout!

A Little Gift

today I got to shower a great friend with love and happiness:) it was her bridal shower and naturally my mind went crafty… What could I make her… So I decided double layouts, and a date memory box were perfect!

After days of layers, hours of drying and loads of medium I designed two fab layouts featuring two of my fav pics of the beautiful couple!!

I started by find out the brides fav colors; blue, pink and grey. With that said I created two backgrounds, one with blues and one with pinks! Next was a thick layer of stencilled coarse moulding paste.  Then I added a touch of grey to them both to enhance the paste.

I laid the pic where I wanted to end up being and sketched around it with a stabilo pencil, then sprayed it with water, I love how the color bleeds when wet.

For the blue layout I layered flowers, chipboard pieces and embellishments before adhering the photo. Dry brush white gesso onto the embellishments and apply more blues and greys. Once dry, use pop dots to adhere to photo onto layout on top of the flowered pieces.

For the pink layout I adhered the photo down then adhered flowers, chipboard and embellishments. Then I applied white gesso to the embellishments and applied more pink and grey tones to them.

On both layouts I covered the photos and splattered around the photo keeping the splatters tight and not over the entire layout! This helped to tie it all together!!

here is a pic of how the full three projects look together!!!

As Long As We Are Together

Today I bring you layout using a variety of products and little pieces from my stash! for a full tutorial and supply list head on over to the Limor Webber DT Inspiration blog!

Jamie (my fiancé) and I started doing Startan obstacle races a couple years ago. We always start together and meet at the end as we are very different racers! There was one race that he wasn’t able to make so I raced alone and it was the worst feeling knowing I was out there completely alone! I know that we don’t run together but I get an odd sense of support and reassurance knowing he’s out there somewhere to going through what I am. It also an imexplainable feeing knowing he will be at the end to hug me! So ever since that one race I raced alone, we have never without each other again!

So now that I have babbled on and you have heard the back story here is the project that was inspired by this!!


And a few close ups

Simple Sentiments

“Simple Sentiments”

Hey ladies and gents, I am bringing you another fab tutorial using the ever amazing Limor Webber Designs products! Sometimes life gets crazy and events sneak up on us, or does this only happen to me?!?! I love to give handmade cards, for some reason it give me a little bit of pride when they open it and smile! The effort put in is worth that smile but, little do they know that I had to whip it together in 10-15minute before I left, because time got away from me and we had to leave for the party and I still had no card!!!

 

Today I want to show how something simple can be beautiful and stunning! The thing I love about magicals is how diverse they are and how everytime you use them you can achieve different looks and color tones! The thing with magicals is that they can be used in many different techniques; today I will my spraying watercolor paper and then tapping them onto the wet paper. What this does is that it makes the colors come out and activate! When the magical isn’t completely mixed with water it created a unique multi color effect. The great thing about Lindy’s products is they have many undertones in every color, the reason this is great in the magicals is that when applied to water (but not fully mixed) it creates an amazing ‘tie dye’ type of effect!! STUNNING!!!! Before we get started I challenge you to pull out you magicals (or go pick some up;)) and play along, this card it completely adaptable and can be done in any color scheme that suits your fancy.

pic1_1jpgLWpic2

I cut a 12”x12” sheet of watercolor paper to 12”x6” and scored along the middle to create a 6”x6” card. Lay flat and spray the two side edges with water, using my first magical color (T-bird Turquoise) and a small, fluffy brush I sprinkle the powder onto the wet edges. (tip: if some powder sits in a small cluster you can spray on top of it to move it around a but more. Try to avoid adding to much water to maintain the multi-colored effect.) Allow this to dry completely. (tip: to avoid wasting product, I didn’t do the entire center of the card, asi knew that it would be covered by my next pieces, so there’s no point adding color there for it to be covered!) Set aside as this wont be used now till the very end!!

LWpic3

On the piece of watercolor paper that’s left over from step 1 I sprayed a section with water and sprinkle my second color (summer lovin sun) over the entire surface, allow this to dry. I picked an area that I really liked the color tones and cut a 4.5”x6” section.

Next up is my fav new tool kit, the FlitterGlu/MegaFlakes byt Indigo Blu! This little baby will turn stamp into a metallic image! So naturally I thought of the ‘Industrial Lamp’ stamp set by Limor Webber Designs to make yummy metallic images on my card front! Before doing any stamping I decided I would do multiple layers of lamps using a different colored MegaFlake every layer. So for each layer I arranged the stamps, image side down, on the 4.5”x6” piece I made in the previous step. When they are place where you want them I place my acrylic block on them, pressing to make sure they would be picked up when I lifted the block.  Following the instruction in the kit (each kit will have everything you need to do this process and can be picked up at the Limor Webber shop) I made the first layer. (using Autumn Blaze) Following all these steps again I did the second layer. (using Chariot of Fire) And repeat one more time for a third layer. (using Yorkshire Dales)

LWpic5

To add a bit of back for my sentiment I used Limor Webber Designs ‘Ink Splatters’  stamp set and a black ink pad. I made these images along the bottom of the card.

LWFullImage

To finish this little gem off I used LW embossing powder (Bonjour Butter from Tres Chic collection) and small letter stamps to create my sentiment in the bottom right corner . Using pop-dots I adhered this to the main base card that you made in the first set. I centered it so that you see the colors on the top and bottom from the background card.

 

Thank you so much for following along today! Hopefully you’re inspired to play and bit with what you currently have or to purchase a few new goodies to try out!!
