Lost Journal Continues Part 2

Happy December!!

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say ‘where has 2019 gone’.   Overall the year has been a good one, yes there’s been some minor bumps in the road, but hey that’s what life is all about, and I’ve certainly had worse years.

I just realized that it’s been a month since I blogged…well November was a very very crazy month at work, sadly I had to give that more attention than my art work.  Though I didn’t ignore my art totally….I’ve been playing in my art journal because it’s quick and I don’t stress over the end results.

As we all move into the holidays we are all busy, but I encourage you to take some time to practice your art in whatever form that might be.  I will be taking some time to reflect inward, and think about how I want to move my art forward in the new year!

I have started a little Christmas season project….but you’ll have to wait a bit before I show you that!

Ok I know stop rambling and let’s get on with the show…..

We went up in early June specifically to avoid the busy season once school was out.  It was very quiet at the resort so our timing was great, even though it was a tad cool…..no swimming at the beach, but the resort had a fantastic hot tub and mineral pool!

The Tim Holtz pocket card gave me another spot to add yet another photo, this is from the viewing tower we eventually found ourselves at.


I had so many photos from this trip that this mini folder I made was the perfect solution to keep everything together and give me the space I needed.

Mike is quite  enjoying flipping through the journal which I’ve dedicated to us and it’s not even done yet!

Thank you for joining me on this journey today!

New Classes Announcement!

Hey friends, hi!

I’ve got some news to share with you today!  If you follow Love is in the Details on Facebook or Instagram, then you likely already know that I’ll be heading up to Canada soon, and bringing with me 3 new classes that I’ll be teaching in early July!  The classes will be held over 2 consecutive days so that if you are coming from a distance and want to take in all three, you’ll be able to do so conveniently.  Here is an outline of each of the classes.

Hollyhocks and more!

Cards, gift card holders and a watercolor painting!  In this class we’ll use the hollyhock die from Impression Obsession to create a card and a framed piece of art. We will also do some stamping and coloring to create two gift card holders.  The stamps I’ll be sharing with you are from Jane’s Doodles.  Jane is Croatian; she grew up in Canada, lives now in Croatia and I’m on her design team.  She’s a sweetheart, and a talented artist whose products Lori will so be carrying in the store and you’ll be able to purchase her stamps at 20% off when you sign up for the class!   Finally, I will teach you a partial embossing technique to create another card with die cut flowers and leaves.  Besides the usual finished projects you’ll take home, your class fees will also give you your own die set to keep, as well as a frame for your art!




Summer Fun and Beach Holidays!

The next class is a mini album!  I’ll be showing you a simple but unique way to cut and fold 12″x12″ papers to create a multi-layered and edged album and we will be embellishing it with Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel Off stickers that I will be teaching you how to color and blend.  The colors of the album are bright primary and secondary colors because the theme will be your choice of Summer Fun or Beach Vacation. Perfect colors for those themes, right??  Once again, there will be a ton of product that is yours to keep besides the finished project!



Watercolor Painted Inspiration Book!

This is a class that is inspired by my own recent attending of a class that relit my creative fire and I hope it will do the same for everyone who takes this class!  I’ve altered the project to give it my own style, which I will be sharing with you.  I’ll be demonstrating each of 15 watercolor elements, providing all the tools needed to duplicate the same, (including all the supplies to take home after the class is finished) and encouraging each student to discover their artist within!  This will be a 6 hour class with a break for lunch and at the end you’ll have a handmade journal perfect for inspiring quotes, lists of gratitudes, or whatever you like!  We will make embellishments for the book and learn some basic Zentangle and lettering skills.


I’m really excited to be bringing these classes to the Love is in the Details community and I’m hard at work right now, prepping for July 6 and 7! You can click directly to the class page from hereI hope to see you there!
