Painted Backgrounds: The sweet life

Hello! 
I hope this week has been good to you! 
I want to show you what might be my favorite layout so far.
It's about my favorite little person and it's colorful and fun.



This is another layout made with those painted backgrounds I did a while back. I was feeling inspired and I got out paint and several embossed cardstock papers from the Embossed Brights stack. I dry brushed some red and white Martha Stewart Paint  on the cardstock and it really brought out the embossed pattern. I also made some splatters with a brush and watered down white paint.


I love layers. Here, I layered prints from the Whimsical Fun 180 stack. It's so fun to layer with thin paper because even a big stack of paper stays pretty thin. I love the prints in this stack, they're adorable and versatile! 



Both of these stacks can be found at AC Moore stores. 
Thanks for stopping by today :)

Valentine's Day Favor Boxes

Hello!
Any of you looking forward to Valentine's Day? 
I am! Not for any romantic reasons, I just like to make cute stuff for the holiday :) 

I want to show you a few valentine's day treat boxes I made using the DIY Favor Boxes stack and a few bits from the DIY Tags stack. I love the variety of favor boxes in this DIY stack. There's something for everyone! I've used them for birthdays and any kind of holiday that requires treats.


 I will be using these for my girlfriends and their children. How cute is that whale?! Hope this helps you get crafty for Valentine's day :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Documenting Theme Park Fun

I'm working on documenting our trip to a couple amusement parks. 
This one is for Knott's. It was early December so although the decorations were up, my layouts won't be Christmas themed. However, I did use Christmas stacks for this layout. I used the DCWV Elegant Holiday and All About Christmas stacks.

 Feel free to mix and match your  paper stacks! I think I have the most fun using more than one stack in each layout. 
Both of these stacks include patterns that are not necessarily Christmas or Holiday themed, so you can use them all year round.  This layout is not particularly Christmas-themed. Although the theme park was decorated for the holidays, I only included one Christmas themed paper. I tucked the journaling in the pocket along with the map to make sure I include all the details I want to remember. 
Ready to get busy crafting?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

Painted Backgrounds: Big Yay!

Last year, I got to go to CHA for the first time.  One of the days, I brought my little one. You know, gotta get them started early ;) 


I still haven't published this layout I made last year soon after the show. 


The big 'Yay' puffy sticker from freckled fawn was just perfect for this layout. This is seriously the feeling I had being able to go to the show. 



This background is one that I created one night when I mass produced backgrounds using DCWV Embossed Bright and Whimsical Fun stacks along with a variety of Martha Stewart paint. 

I'm so bummed that I won't be there this year but looking forward to all the new stuff!

January 2017 Stack-a-holic challenge

The January challenge is here! It's a sketch challenge this time. 

Here's my take on the challenge: 


This photo was taken on  a day where I was taking a photo of my daughter with a fire truck. She gets excited and says 'help,' I say yes, the fire fighters are going to help. 
The fireman walked by and gave her a sticker, so she's making a super excited silly face. 

I hope you get to play with us this month. 
Come to the DCWV Blog  and take a look at the card sketch as well as the inspiring projects by my design team sisters! 
Happy New Year!
