Fall leaves…

Hi, hello!  Happy Wednesday!

I’m back today with a layout to share with you, that I made using some handmade embellishments!  I actually presented a class on handmade embellishments last year, so you know it’s a thing I love.

Another thing I love is Peel Off stickers.  I’ve mostly only ever used them on cards, but today I thought I’d color some up, cut them out and use them as embellishments on a layout.


Here’s where I started.  I peeled off the stickers and laid them onto Bristol Smooth cardstock because I planned to use my real brush markers and that paper allows the color to blend before it soaks into the paper.


Then I cut the leaves out with my fine tipped scissors.


(Because of the difficulty of cutting all the white bits out of that bottom leaf spray, it will likely get used somewhere else, on a background of matching white cardstock where the white doesn’t show up so much.)


Oop!  There’s that precious boy again!  Look at that dolly baby!!


Lets focus on the colored leaf embellishments, shall we?  That’s what we’re here for.


I’ve been hoarding those gold word stickers from Crate Paper, doling them out to myself one at a time.  Today “fun” got pulled off the sticker sheet and used!  They’re so pretty though, they can’t just be used on any old page!


Some of the other supplies I used are:

Patterned papers from Webster’s Pages (blue), BoBunny (green), gold polka-dot vellum (maybe Lori remembers?)

Elizabeth Craft Peel Offs

Word stickers from Cosmo Cricket, Authentique, Echo Park (this moment, fave photo)

Chipboard alphabet stickers - Thickers, Elf

gold word and heart stickers - Crate Paper, Oasis

phrase stickers - Teresa Collins, Crate Paper, Basic Grey

Chipboard “Discover” label - Crate Paper

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

While listening to podcasts….

This has become my favorite zen activity of late…listening to podcasts and coloring stuff.  Stamped images, painting scenes, coloring books, zentangles.  And these peel off stickers.  These things will never get old.  Quite certain.  Also motivating me is an online challenge to color something everyday for 30 days and I’ve been trying to do that for the month of February.  Which, ok.  Technically only has 28 days.  Well, 29 this year!  (Happy Birthday Leap Year babies!!) But it’s too late in the day to get into the why’s and wherefore’s of that.

So yeah, I colored these Elizabeth Crafts Peel Off sticker images on watercolor paper with watercolor paints or Distress Ink markers and a water brush.  And made them into cards.  I got to use a bunch of my 6″x 6″ paper pads and that always makes me happy.  I also got to try out this thank you die, use up a few enamel dots,  and some white emboss powder on black card stock!






Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, and getting to do something creative!  Thanks for stopping by today!
