New Craft Space

I recently moved my craft space to a different part of out basement so that I could take advantage of any natural light coming in the windows.

image

I’m using all the same furniture as before, but I have re-arranged a few things.

image

I briefly considered painting all the furniture white, but I didn’t want to wait any longer than I had to to have my craft space back in working order.

image

My space is mostly functional, but I hope to add more decorative pieces or to make the functional pieces more decorative.

image

It’s all still a work in progress, but  I’m able to scrapbook and make videos as I continue to work on the space.

Fun In The Sun

image

The photos I used for this page are of my daughter McKayla at the beach in Fort Myers Beach. In the largest photo McKayla is holding up a seashell she found on the beach.

I loved using mixed media on this page.

I used a gift card to spread blue and gold acrylic paint on a sheet of white 12″ x 12″ cardstock.

After the acrylic paint dried I added modeling paste to the page by using a gift card and spreading the past through a journaling stencil. I chose the stencil because of the wavy lines.

The modeling paste had a some height to it when it dried and I wanted my photos to overlap a little of the modeling paste lines so I added foam to the back of the phote cluster to adjust for the height difference.

I used a scrap of patterned paper and a beach sign stamp to make the tag to the left of the photo.

I used two  beach themed Fiskars stamp sets for this page.  In addition to the beach sign tag I also stamped seagulls, seashells and a part of a sun  onto the page.

I had so much fun working with stamps and mixed media on this layout and I love how the page turned out!

 

Below is a process video for my “Fun in the Sun” scrapbook page.

Hiking Adventure Layout and process video

I loved using pieces from my Citrus Twist January 2016 main kit, watercolors and stamps on this layout.

The watercolor was inspired by a Crafty Maven Getaway inspiration piece linked below.

Inspiration Pieces

The photos on this layout are from hiking trip at Cuivre River State Part.  My sister and her husband took my girls and their daughter Katie on this hike as a part of Katie’s birthday weekend.

(I didn’t include Katie or her parents on this page because at the time I did this layout I hadn’t asked them yet if it was ok for me to post photos of them.  I have since asked and now have their permission to include them in future pages.)

Most of he  paper for this page came from my January Citrus twist kit, but I did use some scraps to die cut the leaves.

I used my StampeRor to stamp the wild flowers and dragon flies.

I added dragon flies and some black gems to the page after I finished filming, but you can see the rest of the processes in the video below.
