Scrapbook Saturday - Love this Face Layout

Do you set crafting/scrapbooking goals?

I am a big goal setter so I set goals for everything - including scrapbooking:)  I have a lot of albums in my cupboard but because I'm not a chronological scrapbooker, non of them, apart from Eathan's baby album, is finished.  This year my intent is to finish a few albums.  I currently have three albums on the go - my current 2015 album - which is pretty much up-to-date and I hope it stays that way, finishing off 2014 and Jordyn's 1st year album.  I have a lot of guilt over her baby album not being finished - she'll be 16 next week!  So it's time to get that done.  Throughout the year, you will likely see a nice mix of current photos and baby photos until the albums are complete.

So today is another of Jordyn's 1st year pages.  Lots of white space, simple and circle photos - something I don't do often.
Hope you have a creative weekend!  We have 12 teenagers in our house today/tonight for Jordyn's birthday party.  Wish us luck!

 Woot! Woot!  It's Bingo night tonight!  Have a creative day!

Note:  Daffodil delight and pumpkin pie Blendabilities were also used.  However, these items are temporarily unavailable.

Lovely Amazing You - Bingo Sneak Peek

Good morning!  I received a big box of Bingo goodies yesterday.  I'm so excited to host my very first Bingo.  We are going to have a blast!  I thought I'd give you a little peak at one of the projects we will be making on Bingo night and the fabulous stamp set everyone will be receiving. 
I can't take full credit for this card, I was inspired by an Easter card created by Kimberly Van Diepen.  I cased her layout and color combo but changed up the stamp set.  I love all the inspiration you can find online!

If you are free on Friday night and are in Sherwood Park or surrounding areas, I have one spot left for Bingo night.  Just let me know you'd like to come - we start right at 7! 

Have a creative day!

Celebrate Today Watercolor Wash Card

Good morning!  The card that I'm sharing today is one that I created for a set sampler swap that I'm part of.  I love how the card turned out but it took me awhile to figure out exactly what to do because my assignment for the month was Blendabilities but the stamp set was a solid image set.  So after doing a bit of research online for Blendabilities techniques I found one that I could modify a bit and make it work.  It's the Pointillism technique.  You can find the tutorial here.  It's a technique where you use tiny little dots to color and shade.  Because the balloon image is a solid image, I chose to stamp it in pink pirouette and then used the pink pirouette and melon mambo Blendabilities to add the dots.

The background, which I love, was created using a watercolor wash technique.  I started with a sheet of watercolor paper and wet the whole paper using a wet paint brush.  Then I used my aqua painter and dipped it into soft sky ink refill and just spread it onto the watercolor paper in a few areas.  I repeated this step with coastal cabana ink refill and then added a bit of Bermuda bay.  It's a very forgiving technique because all you have to is add more water to either blend or lighten any of the areas.  Really fun!

Have a creative day!
