MAKE IT MONDAY #336: FAUX GILDED LEAVES


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include faux gilding like Laurie shared in the video.

Laurie CLEARLY said use what you have...so I did. I sure wish I had her copper embossing powder, tho...

I used a brown, gold and Grapefruit Zing embossing powder.
Leaf Prints is so pretty and I comes out every fall around here.


A pop of pink or copper 😢 is necessary for realistic fall leaves.
I have been to New Hampshire in the fall, they are so vibrant in color.
My husband grew up there. SO pretty



Wood-grain stencil was my background.


Totally love the idea of gilding the fall leaves.
It is my favorite time of the year!!!



Here is my first Dashing Through the Snow sleigh...SO pretty!!!

MAKE IT MONDAY 334: GLITTER INLAYS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include glitter inlays like Lexi shared in the video.

Lexi has the best Make it Mondays!!!

I am glad to have this one. I LOVE the glitter behind my favorite Mix & Mat

 I have also used the daylights out of Dawns Posie Play/
LOVE it too!

I have had a request from my card buying ladies to make some cards with no sentiment!!!
The card didn't photograph well with no sentiment so I wedged this die cut in.
I plan on stamping off some Keep It Simple banners with various sentiments if they want to add one to the card they choose.


Aqua Mist and Hibiscus Burst are so pretty together.


I'll be making a few of this one!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #333: LAYERING PATTERNS OVER IMAGES


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include layering patterns over images like Dawn shared in the video.

So if you do this technique, use darker colors like Dawn used...not lighter colors like I used...


If you look at the close up you can see the whit stenciling over the card front...


Grans Garden and Dawn's new Say it Simply Birthday die cut.


VERY faint, but it is there. Shows up better in person.

STAMP-A-FAIRE 2018: WRAP-UP




What a fun day.
I liked it a lot more that I thought I would.



Here are my completed projects!


I cannot get over how much I like my watercolor poppy, the travelers journal and the pop-up box. I knew I would love Dawns set. Man, it is so pretty, I wish I had it. I had made paper before so I knew that was fun. And I had made Lizzies flowers before. But it all was a great combination for the Kansas farm girl that has a black thumb and cannot grow a darn thing!!
Thank you Papertrey Ink for your innovative products, amazing design team and incredible service to your loyal customers!
