Creative Stuff(s)...

9.19.2008



Last night I felt inspired to create something little (just didn't have the energy for anything else and I wanted to spend some time with Ethan) and the card above is what transpired. Very simple, but I think it's cute! The owl stamp is by Technique Tuesday. The dot kraft paper is Making Memories, journaling page was taken from a Jenni Bowlin mini-book, phrase stickers are by 7gypsies, button is Basic Grey and the twine is Creative Imaginations (part of the Parts & Parcels Collection).



Some more journal pages to share...really simple ones. The first one I used a quote from the movie Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (that movie is just full of fun little quirks and bits of brilliance in my opinion). I'm hoping to get back into my art journaling again, I've noticed that it's kind of fallen off to the wayside since Zoey started school. That's the beauty (and forgiveness) concerning art journaling though, it's always there when you decide to come back to it.

I've been going through my paper scrap drawer and I threw out a lot of stuff (stuff that I can't even remember buying!) and I was inspired to use some of the little bits from the drawer on a layout and this is what I ended up with.

My Art is Me...

In scrappy news, I'm excited to share that I have had a layout requested for publishing in Scrapbook Trends Magazine! This will be my first time working with them and I am so excited to be a part of their beautiful publication. My layout (which is of Zoey) will be in the February, 2009 issue.

This weekend is a busy one here...we have a Scrapbook Convention in a neighboring town and the store that I work for is representing Creative Imaginations at our booth which is a very cool thing and make me super proud. Speaking of which, have you had the chance to check out the new videos by Creative Imaginations? They now have CITV and are preparing and showing video tutorials, product demonstrations and soon will be sharing artist interviews as well! Super fun stuff, be sure to check it out!
