I altered a kraft bag...the patterned paper panel is Pink Paislee.  


The EAD Designs rub-ons are fantabulous...they go on like butter and are wonderfully opaque.

This uses glorious italian 120 lb note cards by Arturo.


 Celedon...gorgeous eh?

This is the original Cameo Frames rub-ons available at the EAD Designs shop:


I asked Emily to design a smaller version of the images so she came up with the Mini Cameo Rub-ons:

LESSology Challenge #4: The Wall Art Challenge

Hello and thanks for stoppin' by!

Have you heard about LESSology's current Challenge:



Our sponsor for Challenge #4 is Tradefish Designs who is generously offering our winner a $20 gift certificate to the Tradefish Designs store! 


I have an altered 4x4 Burlap Canvas to share with you:

I have a little tip for you....do you know how many varying shades of kraft there are out there?  A little trick I use for patterned kraft paper is to flip it over and use the solid side on the same project.  That's what I did for the die cut that the silhouette is nestled on.  It was a piece of scrap from the Hambly chandelier sheet...I simply flipped it over and die cut it...smacked on the rub-on and BAM...matchy-matchy.

My recycled piece?  It is actually the canvas...it had a different project on it that I made a while back and well, never posted it because I really didn't like the end product so I pulled everything off and started off with a blank canvas:)

Love that sweet silhouette...that's what I typically look like every evening after work...the hair goes up into a pony!

Why don't you play along with us?  You have until Sunday October 30, 11.59 pm EST to LINK  UP!

October Guest Designer for Sparkle Creations: Dude!

So, this is the last week for me guest designing over at Sparkle Creations...



I've had so much fun playing with some very fabbie Sparkle Creations Stamps!  

This week's challenge:

No Coloring Challenge...whew...gotta love that.  

In the month of guesting for Sparkle Creations I have used my Copics more than ever...LOL...I'm really more of a paper piecer than a colorist...and I gotta tell you, the gals on Sparkle's Design Team rock the Copics!  This has been one of the most challenging Guest Designer gigs that I've had BUT it also has been the most rewarding since it really pushed me outside of my normal craftiness:)

I decided to ink up Turntable Josh:

I teamed him up with my much neglected Basic Grey Recess...the alpha is Sassafras.

I was inspired by the latest CPS241:



Make sure to check out all the gals on the Sparkle Creations Design Team:


Are you ready to play along? To play along in our challenge, please upload a photo of your project to the SCRS gallery. Here is the direct link to entries for this week's challenge: Sparkle Creations Photo Gallery -- SCRS Challenges -- Challenge #66. If you haven't registered yet, it just takes a few seconds to create a login and upload your photo. Deadline for this week's challenge is Sunday, October 30th @ 9 PM PST.
