You Are My Sunshine

Good morning! Brooke here with you today!

I have a quick blog post showing the NEW class I will be teaching at Love is in the Details!

I was working on a little somethin’ somethin’ at the store yesterday during the Minc demo. (Thanks for a great demo day, Norine!)

First things first…


Vintage buttons, NUVO, and song lyrics? Come on.

(Succulents not included.)

Fun fact, I propagated the succulent in the yellow jar from the leaf of one of my other plants. Propagation is actually so easy and you should really try it. If anyone needs succulent leaves to propagate you just let me know because I have a million to share.


I’m not quite sure why the lighting in the closeup picture got all wonky, but I was trying to show the dimension of the NUVO drops we will be using. Rain drops. With NUVO. Right?! And the border strips are the lyrics to…you guessed it…”you are my sunshine” typed on a typewriter.

The canvas was inspired by this card that I made for National Cardmaking Day:


I think the canvas would make such an adorable home decor piece or gift. Wait, who am I kidding? I would totally keep it for myself! It’s just too cute.

Speaking of cute…how sweet are my “photography assistants”?

(Cats are also not included in the canvas class. Disappointing, I know!)



Edith and Minerva love crafts more than anyone.

More details coming soon regarding this 8×10 canvas class! Stay tuned.

Have a lovely week, everyone!

look again at your supplies

I love to look at the scrapbooking supplies I already have and use them in a slightly different way.  I actually like to do that with many things besides scrapbook supplies too actually.  I had my Tim Holtz stencils out and I was thinking about the sun burst one and if I could turn it into a rainbow to co ordinate with my Granddaughter’s dress in her Easter photo…. sure enough, it can be done!  I used painters tape across the part of the stencil that I didn’t want to use to block the areas. (you can use regular tape just make sure to stick it to your clothes a few times first to decrease the stickiness, that way it won’t ruin your layout when you take it off)  I used distress ink in the colours of the rainbow.

When I was happy with the rainbow, I added lots of die cuts and used them as a frame and accents for the photo as opposed to a card base as the large frame is intended to be used as. (I believe all of the dies are from Spellbinders that I used and the title was cut with the Silhouette)   The thread I used was from my Mom’s sewing kit from many years ago and the buttons are antique as well.

I like the final layout very much.  I can’t believe how different that stencil looks just by colouring each ray a different colour.
