Mix It Up!
We have just added 4 new talented scrapbookers to our design team and I am so excited to be working with them! I have had the pleasure of working with Rae and Estee in the past and I am looking forward to getting to know Erin and Cherie more! They are super talented and you can check out their blogs by clicking on their name over on the right hand side of my blog!!! And you have got to stop by Mix It Up to see Mixer #24! I was in awe when I saw how these ladies mixed it up for this one!!! AMAZING!!!! For this mixer we had the sketch below for inspiration and then we were challenged to use a photo that was at least 20 years old.
Here's my take on it!
I went with a photo of me at 16 and one of me now at 36 and journaled in a questioning format about what my 16 year old self would think of me now!
I was inspired to create the flowers and their leaves using a technique I learned on The Next Step which you can check out here.
Chip it Up!!!
Here is another of my Magistical Memories projects for this month! We have a challenge going on for July to use lyrics from a song as your title. Of course you must use at least one piece of chipboard on your project! It can be a card, layout or altered item and it needs to be uploaded into the challenge gallery no later than July 31. Winners will receive some amazing Magistical Memories chipboard!!! I went with "So Happy Together" for my song and I hand wrote the words to the refrain around the outside edge! The chippie I used was Out on a Limb however I altered it a bit by removing the bird and inking it that nice brown color.
Serve it Up!!!
Jillibean Soup that is!!!
I have made it no secret that I am in love with their products! Well now their new lines are totally blowing me away! Here's the most recent release they shared on their blog!
And as I was getting the above link, what do a spy? These amazing calendar sprouts! How freaking clever is that?!
Well that's all I've got for now! Happy scrappin' and thanks for stopping by!!!
