Daydreaming…

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday morning :) Thanks so much for stopping in! I’m so excited to go on this crafting journey with you. :) Here’s a sneak peak of one of my projects (before I ramble on for too long…)

For today’s blog post, I used one of the new Kaisercraft lines that Lori has in store, Daydreamer, (hence the super creative title). ;) It includes both soft and bright colours, and also lots of neutral patterns. Essentially, this is a line that you can’t go wrong on! Here, I used it on neutral bags with some “oasis” chipboard pieces from Crate Paper.

I used mandarins as a bit of decor, since they are packaged in the brown bag.

I later packed the mandarins in the brown bag, tea, and some cough candy as a bit of a “feel better” gift for a friend.

Another project I used the Daydreamer line on, was cards. Here, I used ALOT of stickers from the line. You’re probably thinking, stickers? really? I know exactly how you feel. For the longest time I thought stickers in scrapbooking were so “back then.” You know what I mean? I just couldn’t see myself using them on my projects…until now. I started using some of the smaller stickers on the bags and then thought of using some other ones for backgrounds on cards (as a way to use up the stickers in my paper pack…) Well….turns out stickers are actually quite useful and are AMAZING for layering! Because they are flat and generally very simple, I found them to be amazing for layering up with chipboard, Nuvo drops, or other embellishments. I also like to use vellum over the stickers to make the colours softer and creating a bit of dimension.

For the first card, I used the arrow stickers from the Daydreamer sticker sheet and sewed them onto the card. I added little Nuvo drops in between the arrows to add a bit more interest. The “never lose your wonder” sticker is also from the same sticker sheet :)

For the next card I used most of the other “quote stickers” for my background. I initially wanted to lightly paint over the background with white paint, but didn’t have any at the camper and therefore used white Nuvo as paint. I think gesso or white paint would look better, especially if you prefer a matte background, but the Nuvo definitely adds something different. :) I covered half the card front with white card stock to tone the busy background down a bit and then finished it off with a round sticker, raising it slightly with foam squares.

Lastly, my favourite of the three is a simple “hugs” card. Most of the layering happens under the vellum, where I use the the small rectangular pieces from the Daydreamer sticker sheet as a design along the top of the card. I then scattered a few different stickers to create interest in the background.daydreamer3

And here are the layers, all stacked … simple, but sweet. The die cuts are from the Daydreamer ephemera pack which, like usual, contains a huge variety of cuts :)

Hi-eee! …waving…

Hi, hello!  I feel like I’ve been gone since forever after missing my last blog post here!  Long story short…arrived at the cottage after a long 4 day haul….electrical storms…no phone….no internet….no cell service….forced disconnection from all that I hold near and dear.  Kids before Instagram obviously, but only barely.

But we’re back up and running now and I have a nannouncement to make!  Usually nannouncements need drum rolls, but this one isn’t quite at that level.  No new babies, or retirements (though that one is coming soon I hope) or marriages.  Just a class or two.  In the fall.  Soon as the store re-opens!  Now there’s an event big enough for a drum roll, amiright?!

The first class I’ll be teaching is one we had thought to hold at the Spring Crop, but when that plan fell apart, we decided to hold it later this summer (or fall).  So DIY Embellishments will be held at the new store location on Saturday, Sept 9 at 9:30 am.  We’ll be using 12 different techniques to create dozens of embellishments for you to use on cards, layouts and mini albums.

The next class is The Vonderful Vorld of Vellum!  I’ll be showing you at least 4 different techiques for using vellum on your cards to create that extra detail that kicks your cards up a notch!  This class will be held on Saturday, Sept 9 at 1:00 pm.

I’ve been working on putting these classes together for a while now and I hope to see you there!  Watch the Classes page of the website for prices and supply lists.

Have a great and wonderful day!
