Round-up of Mixed Media Tutorials Using Spray Inks and Mists

I thought it would be a good idea to do a round up of all the mixed media tutorials using spray inks and mists. I'm ready to use another medium for the mixed media tutorials. 

This week was so busy with the last week of homeschooling before our summer break and the last week of swim lessons, I didn't have time to put together a tutorial this week. I did however buy some yummy supplies at Costco this week and I can't wait to start playing and sharing some new tutorials with you!

Cloudy Skies Hello Card and Pocket Journal Card | Cloudy Sky Background Tutorial

Today I'm sharing a tutorial on how I used Sweet Stamp Shop's Speech Bubbles stamp set to create this cloudy background. I also show how I used a 4"x6" pocket card to make both a greeting card and a journal card for my pocket scrapbook album.

Be sure to check it out on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog! I had tons of fun creating them!

Workflow Wednesday: I LOVE My Canon Pixma Printer

Gosh, it really does feel so good to be back to writing and creating. I really missed you guys while I was resting my back. My back is not quite back to 100% but is slowly getting there and I have lots to catch up on. I got behind on my weekly scrapbook pages which kinda makes me nervous. I know I can catch up and I plan on doing that later this week.

It's my daughter's last week of 2nd grade and we are both so excited to have a month off before heading into 3rd grade and adding a Kindergartner to the mix. I'm totally nervous and excited at the same time teaching two of them. It will be interesting and I'm sure the 3 year old will want to join in the fun so I'm gonna have my hands full come September. EEK!!!

On Cherry Street Blog Hop - July 2014 - Week 27 pocket scrapbook insert

Welcome to the On Cherry Street Blog Hop, you arrived here from Evelin's blog.

Are you getting inspired by all the great projects using the On Cherry Street Magical kit and the coordinating Sweet Stamp Shop stamp sets? I know I am! I'm blown away by the talent of the team!

As I promised yesterday, I'm back with the 4th of July and more vacation pictures and stories insert in my Project Life pocket scrapbook album! I had lots of fun putting this insert together. I'll be honest, I was a little worried about being able to do another project with the kit since I'd already used several of the cards already in this Disney honeymoon page in my wedding album, but cutting up the cards and a little extra paper from a paper pad worked out perfectly.


WEEK 27 - 6"x12" INSERT

FRONT SIDE OF INSERT

For the 4th of July front side of the insert, I focused on the photos we got from the local newspaper as well as Mark's bike ride on the trails since he was wearing a red top and it matched... don't tell anyone that it wasn't actually on the 4th of July but another day of the week LOL.

For the top card, you'll recognize the mixed media stamp embossing card that uses all the stars in the new releases. 

For the middle/right card, you'll recognize the card I made for my 4th of July post over on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog

I also added some paper layers to those two cards. I used bits and pieces of paper from a Studio Calico paper pack and trimmed and layered them to bring the whole page together. 

For the bottom card, I wanted to add more navy stamping to the page to tie in the navy stars and stamped the "We came. We saw. We Conquered" stamp from the kit twice with the same navy ink.


BACK SIDE OF INSERT

For the back side of the Week 27 insert, the kids had caught a couple frogs in my parents' backyard and we got a photo of it and this "Keep Calm and Kiss A Frog" card was just too perfect... especially with the "or not" stamp! 

For the top card, I trimmed off the "or not" part of the 3"x4" card to use on the frog photo card and thought it was perfect for these photos of the kids not looking at the camera when we asked them to, lol. We did so much that week that I thought the "We came..." stamp was perfect again for the back side and then I did all sorts of journaling.

For the middle cards, I left the "...kiss a frog" card as is and then stamped the "or not." stamp down the strip of paper. The solid green card is the leftover from me trimming the 4"x6" Walt Disney quote card in 1/2. I also stamped the crown on the photo and colored it in with a Wink of Stella gold glitter brush, and added the left over "or not" from the top card.

For the bottom card, I wanted the quote to face horizontally, so I cut the card in half and adhered it to the top corner of the paper. Easy Peasy... and I totally love how it turned out.

Now it's time to hop on over to Jennie's blog for the next stop on the On Cherry Street Blog Hop. ENJOY!!!

July 2014 - Week 27 in my weekly pocket scrapbook album

I'm going to be frank with you right now, I'm exhausted! I still haven't quite gotten out of vacation mode and it shows. On the other hand, I got some goodies from Studio Calico and I decided to play with them for this week's Project Life pocket page. 

This page is straight up paper and cards that I trimmed and the alpha stickers that came in the kit. I also added a little bit of journaling and that's it. It's not my normal mixed media style, but it's definitely my old paper layering style. Thank goodness for fun papers and a funky alphabet! 

Have you ever fussy cut out elements from your journal cards or layered lots of papers behind your photos?

Have you ever split up a 4"x6" journal card into two 3"x4" pockets?

Thank You For Your Support - Facebook 500 Printable Journal Cards and Labels Freebie

I was so excited to see on vacation that we hit 500 likes on my Facebook page, and so quickly after 250 likes. As promised I've made a new freebie! 

This freebie is completely inspired by our vacation. The 4"x6" card is actually a photo I took on our date night sunset cruise. I had fun playing with brushes and actions to give it a watercolor sketchy look. The anchor was inspired by my niece who I spent time practicing drawing an anchor to add to her ceramic bowl she painted at the art barn. I had such a great time with both my nieces at an art barn doing some painting and then browsing the art galleries in town.

I know it's a tad different for me, but I'm in love with how it turned out. I hope you like it too!
