Mixed Media Fun

I decided to do a little playing with mixed media today.  I sat down with some supplies I knew I wanted to play with.  Namely Gelatos, stencil and embossing paste.   My intention was to make a pocket scrapbooking journaling card.  I made a cute one...however I had even more fun with my practice sheet.  I liked it so much I made it into a card.  
Here are the supplies I started with:

Here is the card I ended up with:

Supplies: Lulu Lavender Fireworks, Jet Black Ranger Archival Ink, Golden Gel Medium Light Molding Paste, Faber Castel Gelatos, Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die, Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock, Queen & Co Rhinestones, MME Washi Tape, Three Ring Circus Sentiment stamp, Some Odd Girl Sentiment Stamp, Heidi Swapp Spray Stencil

I am excited to participate in What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday this week.  I can happily say, not much is on my desk.  Finally, thanks to my Dad and my new Raskog cart, it is all clean.   It is organized and ready for a brand spanking new project.  

Here is the super scary before pic:

AACCKKK!!!  It should not be hard to imagine why I haven't made anything lately.  LOL.  But that is all about to change.  Be back soon with some Halloween cards to share.

Getting Organized!

I am still working on getting my MoJo back.  I think half of crafting is organization.  If your space is a big mess, it isn't really conducive to creating.    Got new goodies?  Where do you store them?  Making a project....where do you put everything? I have some much stuff piled onto my workspace that I have no where to make anything.   I had a blast two weeks ago at Scrapbook Expo. I got a ton of great new things, but where do I put all my new things?  

Enter IKEA and the Raskog cart.  My Dad was nice enough to get me one and I love it.  I feel like it is the perfect storage solution for Project Life. I have a ton of stuff in mine already and it is perfect because it is mobile.  Notice it is right in front of the closet.  I can just roll it out of the way when I need to open the closet doors.  

Below are some of the new fun things I picked up at the Expo.  

Here is how I decided to organize all that great stuff into my Raskog cart. 
The top shelf of my cart holds some basic tools like a glue runner, corner rounder, xyron sticker maker,  ink pad, stamp block and pens.  

On the middle shelf I have two inserts.  On the bottom are my Gelatos, Tools, Masks, and Washi tapes.  Above that are my journal cards and Copic journals.  In the back I have Thickers and some card stock.  

At the bottom I have more Washi, clear stamps, stickers, 6x6 paper pads, and a ton of Glitz Design goodies.

Took some fun classes at Scrapbook Expo too.  One was a mixed media class with the Rubber Cafe.  It was all about using Gelatos.

I'm Back! with a scrapbooking project to share

I'm Back!  I have not been crafting for a while now.  Managing my IBS has kept me pretty busy for months.  I am happy to report I am doing much better and have gotten back to having some free time to do some papercrafting.  In honor of Virtual Scrap Book Night over on Splitcoast Stampers... here is a scrapbook a friend asked me to make for her coworker who is expecting.

Got Washi and Copic Color Matches for Basic Grey Soleil

I am loving the Basic Grey Soleil collection of papers!  These are all my favorite colors.  I thought it would be cute to color up Saturated Canary image Washi Tape Kinda Girl and pair it up with this cute paper.  I threw in some assorted washi tape from my collection and broke out my Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator A2 Dies to make the layers nice and straight.  I can honestly say that did not miss measuring on the paper cutter, not one little bit.  I used a Lil Inkers die to cut out the background on the sentiment and a random heart sticker. 

Some Copics color matches for the Basic Grey Soleil Collection:
