Happy Tuesday Everyone…I hope this post finds you all doing well today!!! It’s a crisp morning here….but no rain….that’s supposed to return tomorrow…Ugh….we have so much high water around here….just hope we don’t get massive flooding….But..ANYWAY!!! 😉
I had shared the other day I would try to get pictures of the scrapbook pages I’ve done so far posted… so those of you who might want to peak could…..I decided just to upload them to an album and let you just go to the album and view them …as opposed to posting each of them here…you would be scrolling a while!! 😉
So….anyone interested….here’s the link below…
SCRAPBOOK PAGES CREATED THROUGH 2/27/2018
The boys in this page are my 2 sons when they were MUCH younger….LOL…but this was the bestest doggie to ever have lived!! 😉
I’m happy with how they’ve turned out so far…..and love how I’m truly enjoying creating those…..I Made a decision a couple months back that was huge for me….I enjoy printing my scrapbook pages and embellishments myself rather than using the paper stacks you purchase from the stores….(mind you I have tons of those…LOL)
I previously had an Epson 7510 12×12 printer which I loved….but printing your own papers can go through the ink cartridges rather quickly….so I took the plunge and invested in the Epson Eco tank ET-16500…and OMGoodness….this machine is a dream!!!! It works with bottles of inks that you fill the tanks with…supposedly the bottle of each color is to give you prints for approximately a year…..but they are so economically priced even if it only lasts 6 months it will pay for itself in no time….
So now when I print my papers and embellishments I don’t feel guilty doing it…I just love being able to put that extra special touch on my pages….
Okie Dokie…Time for me to go to work…YUCK!! 😉 I would like to wish you all a very blessed day…and I hope you will stop by and visit again…Until next time!!
How about this!! 2 Challenges in 1 day!! I’m on a roll…..now for it to just continue!!! Again it’s for the Outlawz Ning Group and this one is the Special Challenge using a digi image….the particular image I’m using for this challenge is from artist Sheepskidesign
Sheepskidesign Sunflower Image
Isn’t that a pretty image?….Well I decided to work on another scrapbook page…..so here’s what I created incorporating that image….
I think the digi image works well with the layout I created….don’t you??? And I must admit I am enjoying taking a particular element that is required and incorporating it into a layout I’m creating….helps expand your creativity….If you haven’t done this before I would really give it some thought to trying it…..
I have taken photos of all the scrapbook pages I’ve created so far……I will work on sharing them with you in the next few days…..who knows….may even get it done tomorrow afternoon….Tomorrow morning we go to look at the venue once more for the upcoming wedding of our youngest son and his fiancé…..we are so ready for this wedding….they have loved each other since the 7th grade…it’s a beautiful love story with joy, heartbreak and joy again…..and they are truly soul mates…..I had the honor of creating their save the dates…..thought I would show a pic of that here….I love how they turned out…
Didn’t it turn out awesome…and don’t they look so happy!!! This mama couldn’t be more proud!!
Okie Dokie….that’s it for me for the night!!! Thanks again for stopping by to visit with me….I wish you all a very blessed and safe evening and Sunday!!! Until next time…
Good Morning Everyone…I hope you are all doing well this morning!!! So…I recently joined a group I had received an invitation to…..The Outlawaz Ning Group…..in a hope to regain inspiration for creating….and in the meantime work on scrapbook pages and things I’m wanting to complete…..
So one of the groups I joined was the Color Challenge Group…..this week’s challenge was for Blue/Yellow/Red colors and must include a hot air balloon…..here’s what I came up with…..
Please tell me you see Blue/Yellow/Red stronger then the other colors you also see!! LOL
I had fun creating this……and looking forward to doing more challenges!! Don’t you just Love (NOT) that zit in the middle of my face!!! HAHA…and that’s actually my hair color when I was young…before it all turned white!! And those bangs and “side bangs” I was so mad at my step-dad…..I wanted to have “Farrah Faucet” hair so badly….as my hair was all one length…..but my mom wouldn’t take me to have it cut…..my step-dad said he could cut it for me….so me being a nieve 12 year old decided to let him give it a go and he wacked it on the sides…..I was devastated and furious at the same time….Obviously I NEVER let him cut my air again!!! LOL
So…that’s it for my contribution to the Color Challenge…I hope you got a good giggle from the picture…….I’ve done other scrapbook pages of my kiddos and granddaughters…I need to take pictures of them and share them here…..would anyone be interested in seeing them?? I am surprised how much I’m now enjoying scrapbooking….I always thought I hated it….then decided that I really wanted to preserve pictures we could touch rather then just keeping them digitally….and I’m actually using the pictures from days of old….
Anyway….Thanks so much for stopping by…..it means so much more than you know…and for following me over to my new home here on WordPress….I do hope you will stop by again…until next time…I wish you very blessed days!!
Hey…Hope this post finds you all doing well….Just wanted to welcome you over to my new home here on WordPress…..Decided to make this move for myself…and hoping I will begin sharing layouts I create on my scrapbook pages and other cards and such….it’s been so long and I’m really wanting to work on that!!
I hope you’ll make my blog to follow now that I’ve moved over here…..Hoping starting tomorrow to begin sharing a photo or 2….working on finding some groups to get more involved in….and you will noticed I do have links to both my old cutting files and to my YouTube channel for those who are looking for those…..
Again….thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a very blessed weekend!!!
Good Morning Everyone….I hope this posts finds you all doing well…It’s been SO LONG since I’ve really reached out online…..I’m trying to get back to my roots of creating and blogging about my creations I think…..as of late I’ve been trying to really think to myself what I’m wanting to really do to bring me joy in crafting again…..
I’ve started scrapbooking my family and though it was something I thought I would never enjoy….I find myself really loving it…..
I’m getting away from messy mixed media I believe and back to my roots of paper and ink and my computer…..I’m really looking to find some awesome creative groups I can possibly join and interact with…..that AREN’T on Facebook preferably……it’s just a place I don’t much care for….is anyone else like that??
If anyone even reads my blog anymore….do you happen to know of any??? I would love to hear from you…..I’m just afraid I’ve been forgotten in our creative blog world and not sure what I need to do to jump back into it…LOL
Sure hoping to get at least 1 comment from this post!! HA….Wishing you all a very blessed day and week ahead!!
Hello Everyone…I pray this new year finds you all well and happy!!! I’m very happy and excited to see our new president taking office in just a few short days!!!! 😉
The past 3 years have been filled with alot of health challenges for my husband and I…..and Praise the Lord we’ve come through them and the Lord has blessed us in healing and we are able to be here with our children and grandchildren…for that I am so thankful…..
Having gone through all of this it has made me really take some time to stop and think about what is truly so very important to me……and that is my faith…my family…..,my close friends and my art….and there are so many things I have wanted to do for me and my family in regards to art that I’ve always not done because I wanted to be always relevant online….I know…crazy right!! I’m finally making a tough decision…but one I’ve come to peace with after praying about it….talking with family and my precious close friends….
I am no longer going to be sharing cutting files……nor doing video tutorials….When I do those I lose so much time for me that it has become a source of stress that triggers my migraines and I have to do something to stop those….it has caused me many health issues that I must get under control….
I will be keeping my blog as a form as an online diary for my projects I will be creating for my family and friends and sharing my love of the Lord……a way to document my history of ART and things I create…..I want to thank you for the years and years of support for coming by and visiting my blog….I would love for you to continue to visit to view what I’ve created even though I will no longer be sharing files and videos….but if you choose to move on I understand…..
This year I’m determined to take more time for ME……I want my passion for ART to come back full force….It’s been on hiatus far to long!!! I plan on visiting more blogs and watching many more videos and FINALLY Scrapbooking my boys and my grandchildren’s lives….I’ve only created one Scrapbook in my life and it was for my boss years ago…..and I have finally gotten the desire to create them for my family……and I’m truly looking forward to this adventure….I’ll share pages as I complete them…..so hopefully you stop by to visit with me!!! 😉
Again…Thank you so much for your years and years of support and warm loving comments….I pray I don’t lose your interest over a decision I am making for me……and I would like to wish you all a very Blessed and Happy New Year ahead!!! May you enjoy a year of health, prosperity and happiness!!
Good Morning Everyone!!! I hope this Thursday Morning finds you all well and rested!!! I am so looking forward to a 3 day weekend!! Aren’t you?
So…I just wanted to pop in this morning and share with you all that I have been reviewing the wonderful comments and requests that have been sent to me from the inquiry box on the left column of my blog…and I thank you for taking the time to respond. I have had several requests for tutorials on SCAL, Inkscape and Mixed Media……I will…in the coming weeks try to come up with ideas for tutorials….was wondering if some of you could offer specifics of things you are seeking information on so I can gear the tutorials specific to your needs.
I also want to thank those of you who have left warm comments…they touched my heart and made me feel very special!! My goal is to be sharing just as much as I did in years past….So I do hope you will make my blog a regular stop on your blog travels!!!
I wish you all a very blessed day!!! Until next time….
