C.Y.D.I.? Denim and Lace Challenge

Today is the first day of the new Can You Digi It? Challenge involving Denim and Lace.

To make this card, I used the Corset image from Dana's Digital Cafe and printed it out on SU! Whisper White and The Paper Studio Blue Jean designer paper. After paper piecing the image, I put on a little Ranger Distress Stickles in Rock Candy because who doesn't like a little sparkle when they are wearing something as expensive as a Corset.

I mounted the image on another layer of Whisper White and put that on a Spellbinders fancy frame die cut in black (Hobby Lobby) because it made the card fancier and this Corset called for fancy! I printed out my sentiment; it says,"The Little Things Make a Difference," - at least that is what the Google Translater says. My bg paper is from the Genuine pad from Authentique (also available in the C.Y.D.I.? store), and it is a house favorite per Michelle (the store owner)!

The blue jean flower was made with some old jeans I had laying around; I cut them with a Tim Holtz distressed flower die using my Big Shot. I rolled them around in my palm to distress the three layers, and then I put them together with a brad I think came from SU! (thanks to Kelly for that tip on cutting fabric with a die and distressing it to make it look like you have had it forever).

Here is a quick link to all the store products I used:

You should join the challenge - who doesn't love denim and lace! There are prizes! Below is the collage that Michelle put together to inspire us.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
