Jenni Bowlin Vintage Cigar Box Project

Happy Monday!!  To brighten your Monday I thought I would share a project  I created with the Jenni Bowlin Vintage Cigar Box.  The little compartments were so fun to fill with little details.  I taught this class on Saturday and the girls loved it!!  Thanks ladies for a fun day.  I still need to find a picture to fill the space on the left.

 This little birdcage is my favorite part of this whole project.

Burlap and tufting with cute buttons, pure love!!

Super sweet dress form with tutu and lots of glitter.  

 Even a spot for a little love note.

 A single hanging heart in a vile, how sweet is that!

Have you had a chance to play with Jenni's cigar box?  Leave a link to your project I would love to see what you created!

"LoVe iS wHaT MaKEs ThE RIdE WoRtHwhiLe" A Mixed Media Canvas

I am happy to say that my mojo is back and I have been feeling quite creative, my mind whirling with new project ideas!  Last week I started this adorable mixed media canvas, and was able to finish it this weekend!  I love the bright colors and happy feeling of this canvas.

Cute little love birds on a picket fence, how sweet is that.

Cut this cute little phrase from an old Fancy Pants Valentines collection.  It is the perfect finishing touch to my canvas.

Hope you all had a nice Family Day weekend!  Thanks for stopping by and remember Cassie from Paper Issues Etsy shop is offering a 20% discount to all of my readers! Just use the discount code "SUSAN" so she knows that I sent you!

Hockey Tape, Tissue Tape, Washi Tape Oh MY!!

Ok so the new theme is up at Paper Issues and you guessed it, it's all about tape this time!!  Gotta love that.  I am so in love with tape right now, so this theme is perfect for me!  I created this layout using one of my fave tapes, hockey tape.  I also included some tape from Heidi Swapp that I've had in my stash for years and lets not forget the Dymo labeler it all!!

One of my favorite things to do with the hockey tape is to stamp on it.  This time I used a number stamp to embellish the white hockey tape.

This year my boy's hockey team was chosen to have a skills practice session at the Saddle Dome, the home of the Flames (for you non hockey fans).  Well this is pretty exciting for a 9 year old who loves Kipper (the Flames Goalie).  I captured this photo of Harrison during drills  and then later came across this picture of Kipper in the same position.  I love how little Harrison looks in the net compared to Kipper.  Every little boy who plays hockey dreams of making it into the NHL and Harrison is no different.   Needless to say this was an amazing day for our little H-Bomb that he will remember for a lifetime. 

Cassie Box the owner of Paper Issues and our faithful, talented leader also has an Etsy shop filled with fabulous products.  Some of the products she carries is twine from the twinery (can I just say I love this stuff!), Smash products, the latest patterned paper and embellishments, chipboard, watch parts, Crafter's Workshop Stencils, doilies and much much more. You should check it out!  Cassie is offering all my readers a huge 20% discount on any purchases made at her Paper Issues Etsy Shop!!!  To receive the discount you need enter "SUSAN" at check out, so she knows that I sent you.  Happy shopping!

Where Have I Been and Paper Issues!!

Ok can you say BAD blogger!!  I can't even use the excuse I have been super bus.  I have been feeling uninspired and unmotivated lately in the scrapbooking department. Hopefully the mojo will be back soon.
Now what have I been up to you might ask...  Well we surprised our kids with a trip to Disneyland in January, which was a total blast!!  I haven't been there in years and it was way more fun than I remembered, it truly is a magical place.  

We were also away for a hockey tournament for our son.  Not as much fun as Disneyland but it had its moments like when my boy came second in the goalie skills competition!!! He was thrilled!  Way to go little man.

I finally went to my studio and created this layout.  It felt good to play with my stuff and get creative.  I have posted this over at the Paper Issues blog.  The theme is "All we need is love".  This is definitely not your traditional valentines but I love it just the same.  Stop by Paper Issues and take a look at the amazing projects that have been posted.  Very inspiring!! And if you have a project, card or layout that fits this theme link it, we would love to see what you are creating!

I am so loving this color combo these days.

And doillies!

And Washi tape!

Paper Issues is also looking for some new designers!  How exciting is that?  This is a fabulous team to be apart of, the girls are amazing and wildly talented.  Check it out at Paper Issues. 

Ok so I promise not to wait so long before my next post!  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
