Garden Shed Blog Hop

 Garden Shed Blog Hop!!

Today I am working with Club Scrap's Garden Shed kit.  Today I made a mini album that folds out and has all sorts of little pockets for inserting photos or other memorabilia.  The cut outs in this kit were a perfect addition to the mini album!!

To create this little album - start by scoring every 3 inches in both directions.  This creates 16 blocks - now cut away blocks as shown:

Now cut away half a block where you see the X above to get this:
 Now diecut or punch half circles as shown:
Here is a more detailed image of how to make the album - cut on cut lines, score on score lines...
Here is the folded up album - I adhered a ribbon to the back to tie around and keep mini together.

September Artist Team Challenge (Wood)

SEPTEMBER ARTIST CHALLENGE 

The theme for September is Garden Shed. We thought it would be fun to challenge you to incorporate wooden elements into your projects.

I had some large flower wooden cut outs laying around that I decided to be my 'wood' for this challenge. I decided to kill two birds with 1 stone on this project - since retreat is coming right up and I needed a door sign for our motel room - I created the following layout using the ClubScrap Transformations kit for our motel door. I totally love this photo - Tricia is just too fun - seriously if you haven't gone to ClubScrap retreat - get a jar and start saving your change - it is the most amazing time ever!!
I started out with plain wood diecuts, then I spray painted them with white paint. Let dry. You will need to do a couple layers if necessary. Once painted and dry. I rubberstamped the butterfly image in black india ink. I used a script image with blue ink and stamped around the butterfly image. I then inked the edges of the flower with blue ink and let dry.

And just for giggles - I made two cards as well using the wooden diecut pieces!!



If you are headed to retreat - and see our door sign - knock and say HI!!!!!!

So now go check out LILIAN's project next!!!

Wicked Wednesdays "Fall colors" challenge - Garden Shed ATC

Garden Shed ATC 

These stamps are so fun - I totally looove Butterflies - so I would imagine I will be doing a lot of playing with this little guy!!  The garden shed set of stamps are very fun and lots of potential - You can find them HERE.

This one I am submitting to Wicked Wednesdays ATC Challenge blog for their "Fall Colors" themed challenge:

To create background, I inked edges with brown ink, then spritzed with yellow and brown delusions sprays.  I then stamped the buterfly, script, and thyme images as shown.  I stamped the sentiment on a couple pieces of cardstock and trimmed out each word leaving as much space as I could around each word.  I then used a marker to outline each word.  I colored in butterfly with yellow and pink sharpies.  I outlined the butterfly with white pen.  I added a few extra scribblings using a black pen.

Club Scrap Sunflowers Blog Hop

 Sunflowers Blog Hop!!

Today I am working with Club Scrap's Sunflower kit.  These sunflower stamps are so pretty.  I made a fun set of cards for today hop - hope you enjoy them!!

To make these cards - I used versamark ink and heat embossed white images and sentiments onto black cardstock.  Once images were done and cooled, I placed them in my over spray Clubscrap pizza box and splattered lime green and yellow acrylic paint onto card pieces.

Then just mat those pieces as shown onto card front:




I embossed the images/sentiments with white embossing powder on the dark brown cardstock.  I think splattered green and yellow acrylic paint onto panels.  Let dry - then adhere to card backs!

ClubScrap Artist Team Monthly Challenge (August)

AUGUST ARTIST CHALLENGE 

The August challenge means “back to school” for many households, so we though it would be fun to incorporate that theme into the August challenge. Some suggestions: Teacher gifts, desk organization ideas, calendars/planners, Back to School scrapbook pages.

Well I just got back from Vancouver, WA where I was working for a week. Just prior to going there, I painted a bunch of rocks to leave as 'Abandoned Art'. Normally I leave earrings, but decided to mix it up and make a bunch painted rocks. Here is a sampling of some of the rocks I have been painting:

While I was in Vancouver bored in my motel room - I brought a bag of rocks I had previously painted black and brought my paint and tools to paint more rocks:

Well I was telling my co-workers about my little project and one of them said - have you heard of "Vancouver Rocks"? well no I hadn't...so I looked into it. It is a facebook group dedicated to painting rocks and leaving little pieces of Art all over the Vancouver area. It is a fairly new group and already over 15,000 people in the group. Well funny that I had just hauled a bunch of rocks to town to leave...seemed like fate!

Anyways since I am on this little kick and this challenge came along - I thought why not try rubberstamping on rocks and they could be great little paper weights for Teacher gifts.

TIPS:
Find FLAT rocks...they are easiest to rubberstamp on!!
Place your unmounted rubberstamp onto a mouse pad, sticky side on the pad. This allows a little more flexiblity with trying to stamp on a rounded edges of the rock.
Don't touch the HOT rock!!

I started out thinking about using white Stazon ink, but didn't happen to find my pad quickly enough. I ran across my embossing powders and decided to give them a try first. I used my versamark pad and stamped on my previously painted black rocks:

Add embossing powder - use heat gun to melt embossing powder - now TIP here...it will take a LONG TIME - like way long - like looooonnnnngggggg - OK maybe not that long but if embossing on paper takes say 30 seconds, the rock takes (I am guessing) 2 or 3 minutes...I think that whole darn rock needs to heat up before it melts...but eventually it does...BUT DON'T PICK UP THE HOT ROCK!!!! It will be HOT and probably burn your fingers. I just slide rock onto a piece of cardstock and moved off to the side to cool down. Takes them quite some time to cool down too!!

I tried a few different colors of embossing powders even one with tinsel in it...they all seemed to work just fine. When I was done and the rocks had cooled, I added a bit more color using acrylic paints. Last step is to spray the rocks with polycrylic sealing spray. Let dry and spray both sides. Gives the rocks a nice shine while being protective at the same time!!

Anyways I think these will be awesome gifts for the teachers...I am thinking when I go next week to all the classrooms to meet the teachers, I could just casually leave a rock behind as a little surprise!!



Hope I have inspired you to go find a rock and get your Art on!!

So now go check out LILIAN's project next!!!
