A Boy And His Dog-Creative Moments Challenge #141

Here I am once again with a fantastic challenge from Creative Moments Challenge Blog.

For Challenge #141 the theme is a minimum of 2 flowers on your creation.

My sponsor this challenge is

The image that I have chosen is Cinema Chaplin. It is an adorable image of a boy and his dog. I have boys and dogs so this one tugs at my heart. โค๏ธ I don’t very often use flowers on masculine cards so this is a bit of a challenge for me but I am up for it!

I used Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs paper. One of the papers had a beautiful floral print in gorgeous, vintage colours. The colours of this floral paper were incorporated into the Cinema Chaplin stamp as to coordinate the image with the paper. The floral paper is what I used as the flowers requested in the theme. I layered up several patterned papers and knotted lace ribbon to give the look of depth while using 3D adhesive to lift the characters.

Products used: Mari digi image, Spectrum Noir markers, Chameleon markers, Graphic45 paper sticker and chipboard , Recollections cardstock, miscellaneous ribbon.

Snow On The Mountains-Creative Moments Challenge #136

I am here again to share my creation for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog. This week the theme is weather & a sentiment.

My sponsor for this week is

You can find your way to the challenge and the image by clicking the above pictures!

I had a wonderful time working with the mountain image from Scribbles. I love the look of the mountains and can see them most days from my living room window! We live just a couple of hours from one of the most beautiful places on earth! ( I may be biased ๐Ÿ˜Š) My sons & husband ski. I do not, but I occasionally go with them and read in the lodge. Sometimes I bring projects to work on. I do wish that I enjoyed skiing but I have tried it and it really isn’t my thing. I grew up on the prairies so there was not much opportunity to learn.

I coloured the mountain image with Spectrum Noir markers and used a white embossing powder covered with UTEE to give the look of snow.

The plaid paper, spotted acrylic sheet (used back side of), compass sticker, bear & tree diecut as well as the sentiment stamp were all CTMH.

SCT Sampler January

I was so excited to hear that Scrapbook & Cards Today was putting together a sampler subscription. I signed up as soon as I heard about it! I got my sampler on January 15.

It came packaged in a bag with this adorable hello beautiful card. On the back of the card it outlined who the products were supplied by.

This is just a sampling of what I received. There were sample sized papers, vellum, stickers, die cuts, chipboard & acrylic pieces and other embellishments. It also came with a stamp,and die set that is so cute.

There is a great assortment of goodies with plenty of product to make many things! I made these 2 cards using items from my sampler pack.

There is a lot of product in the small package! My favourite item in the pack was the gold sequins! I put that stuff on everything!

Progress Made-Challenging Myself

*This post may contain affiliate links. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have been trying to make things for myself. It was a sort of New Years resolution . I am working on my 12 Month Journey Of Craftiness. You can follow it on my Facebook page or on Instagram. (#12monthjourneyofcraftiness #scrapatini)

I have specific things that I want to accomplish for myself in a crafty way this year. My goal is to complete the following goals each month:

โœ… 2 scrapbook layouts

โœ… 4 cards

โœ… try at least one new product or technique

โœ… complete at least one PHD (project half done)

โœ… to have more fun, contests, and interaction with my followers

It is already January 20 and since I have made my journey a priority, I have completed my monthly goal except for finishing a PHD! I am working on that PHD but I have a ways to go to complete it.

The new product that I have tried this month is coloured pencils from Prismacolor. They are amazing, very high quality colouring pencils. They have a great lay down of colour and are very smooth.

The Prismacolor pencils are available here >>>Prismacolor Pencils .

They are currently on a super sale at Blitsy for approximately 87% off! Regular price $93.66 CAD but on sale for $12.49 CAD. *Sale can end at any time so if you want them go get them now!

I have completed 2 layouts. Both are of my terrific and cute sons from our 2014 Hawaiian vacation although I didn’t theme them as vacation layouts. I used some gorgeous Wild Whisper Designs Paper (company from Calgary, Canada! Yay!) and themed them more as a self-esteem layout.

I have also completed several cards and a wine bottle tag.

Have you make a crafty New Years Resolution? Are you taking time to do what you enjoy? Have you made something that you are proud of? Let me know!

12 Month Journey Of Craftiness

I love to make things! I know you have heard it from me before but lately most have my crafting has been for others. I have decided that the new year will bring a renewed love of crafting just for me. I realized that since July most of my projects have been for others, whether it be custom orders or gifts.

I made this layout at least a couple of years ago! Notice anything about it? It has no picture! It has been sitting in my To-Do pile for quite some time. This is what inspired my “12 Month Journey Of Craftiness Event on my Facebook page. Scrapatini on Facebook

I hope you will join me and maybe take your own Journey Of Craftiness in the new year! Happy Crafty New Year!
