Turtle Hippo -JOOTB

Hello!!!!!! YAY it's Friday and I'm hoping that this weekend is better than last weekend and that we have some sun... more of it!!!

So today I'm here to share with you a journaling out of the box and I had lots of fun doing this with the very new release image from Sandra Caldwell.  You can find them here.

I made a video of the process and you can find it here:




I used a cereal box cardboard for the backing of this and it's a bigger journaling card.
I used some fabulous die cuts that were sent to me from Diane.  I also added some lace from my stash.  The image was colored with my copics and fussy cut.  The sentiment was handwritten and then cut out but I found the sentiment online and thought it was PERFECT for this.

Mr Doggie

Wooohooo it's Friday!!!  And this means a new release over at Sandra Caldwell etsy store.

I was super excited about this one because well I love dogs lol.

My start this time around was to find a sentiment that would go with him.  And since I wasn't having a particularly good day at the time I thought the sentiment that I found in a google search was just PERFECT.

Since this is a journaling out of the box (journaling on a card) I have done a video of the process that you can see here:

I really recycled here.  The background is actually a pizza liner that you use to cook your pizza.  The little circles were found objects.

The cute image was colored with my copics.

My Uncle bobo

I have been having fun in a book that I purchased from Dollartree.  I'm doing blackout poetry.  And while I'm doing this I also want to have added interest to that book and that is being done right now with this great image.

I cut out some circles using what I had around me (I was away crafting for the weekend with my friend Erin when I made this).

I sprayed the page with black pearlized homemade spray.  The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  The sentiment was part of the stuff that I cut out of magazines.

Steampunk Silly

Hello everyone!  I'm hosting a challenge over at Sandra Caldwell FB page it's all about Steampunk!  And she put 6 yes 6 images for sale at 1/2 off!!!  Including 2 new release!!!

I have made a few videos that will be airing in the following days but one is on today.  I made a JOOTB (journaling out of the box) here is the video if you want to see that one.  This shows me using the gorgeous Bearly a Steampunk that you can find here.
And here are 2 cards that I made.  There were some birthdays coming up and even if I didn't use birthday sentiments I thought they were perfect for those b-day.

The 1st one is using a digi that Sandra created for this challenge.  She offered it to me the day that my baby Max passed.  I told her how much it meant to see this kitty since I had just lost mine.  Sandra gave me the biggest surprise of all by naming the digi after my baby!  So here is Steampunk Kitty Max.  I colored him like my tabby kitty.  And I'm giving this card to my oldest son for his birthday next week.  He loves cats and I'm sure that this will mean a lot to him as well.
The paper that I used for this make is from Bobunny I think.  I'm losing track of my papers lol.  I used a sentiment that I thought was quite fitting with this little guy and I fussy cut the image and the sentiment.  The image was colored with my copics as well as some coloring pencils and Chameleon pens.

Here is the 2nd card that I made this time using Full body Steampunk hippo that you can find here.
The papers that I used for this card are from a pack of scraps from AC Moores and some scraps from my desk.  I also added a sentiment found online.  I fussy cut the image and it was colored with my new Chameleon pens.  I really love those pens.  I added some wood gears to finish it off.  Since there were 2 corners that felt blank I added some stamping for those.

I'm entering those cards in the following challenges:

  1. Alphabet challenge blog - D is for Decoupage
  2. jw scrap shack - Anything goes
  3. Qkr stampede - Feminine card or anything goes - ok you might not believe me but the hippo card was for an amazing friend the godmother of my oldest son.  I thought she would love the sentiment!  And she did :)  So it was for a women.
  4. 2craftycrittercrazies - Anything goes with a critter
  5. Shopping our stash - Back to basic fussy cut - did that for both cards.
Hope you have a great weekend!  Here the weather is dreary but at least I will be able to craft!!!  Miss it!!!

Today I'm here to share with you a brand new image from Sandra Caldwell that you can find in the shop here on Etsy.  The one that I used is called Owl be Elvis

To make this card I used some papers from my stash (got lots and didn't mark what it was down).  The sentiment was stamped using small alphabet stamps.  I put the little owl on a wobble so that he shakes shakes shake :)  The image itself was colored with my Chameleon pens.  Still learning how to use them!

I always have trouble making masculine cards but I think this one came out pretty good!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  2. The sisterhood of crafters  - the letter "b" - bird, birthday and bubbles on the paper!

Soul book start

This seems like something that I can totally do.  I have found the soul book via the youtube channel of Christie B and you can also find her blog here.

I have made a video to share with you all my mental process through this.  It was quite emotional and unexpected.  I didn't start of thinking that I would do this entire page... it just happened.


And here is the journaling spread that I have made.
As my son said this is totally not my typical style... but I really love how it turned out.  It's the start page of the book.  I used some acrylic paints, a stencil, a stamp from Eclectica and some stamping with a mat, stabilo pencil and some pitt pen.  The mandala was colored with some gel pens as well as coloring pencils.  And then I fussy cut it out.

I used a bunch of left over papers for this as well as a silicone mat for stamping.  The texture paste is from Heidi Swapp.  I colored the super cute hippo with my copics and then fussy cut her out.  I added a bit of sparkly washi at the bottom so that she is kind of doing a tight rope split lol.

And here is the card that I created.  This one is for a little boy.  So I didn't want it to be too girly.

Opening Flower - Alphabet journaling

Hey everyone!  Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  I'm still sort of out of it.... the vacation made it hard for me to get back into a routine.  I'm kind of out of it.  And because of the vacation I'm a day late to share this make with the great new release freebie image of The East Wind.

All you need to do to be able to get this great image is to register for the news letter!  And you can find the newsletter registration on this site.

I wanted to play in one of my other journals.  One that has been quite neglected actually.  Last year after seeing KagedFish on youtube show her alphabet scavenger hunt I thought I would do the same thing.  So I set up a book to use for that.  But you know me.... I have trouble just gluing papers down without putting some sort of journaling to it.... so I ended up using it for alphabet but with some digital images and basically journaling but with alphabet.  And then I just let it be and didn't play in it anymore...

So today it's playing with it :)  Of course since it's just a book it's better if I don't use too much wet medium so I limited it to some Tattered Angel inks (some of the new ones that I got :) )

Here is the video of my making this:
And here is the journaling page upclose

I colored the image with my copics and then used some gell roll pen on the dress a bit.  I used some little bits of papers that had been sent to me by Rosaleen (this and that on youtube).  Around the bird I used some blue stabilo pencil and used some water to make it spread a bit.  The tattered angel sprays used are from the set Lucky and the set Easter.  The fun part of this journaling is that there is book text already in the back of this therefore some interest already created that doesn't need to be added.

I'm entering this journaling in the following challenges:

  1. Altered eclectics - Anything goes no card
  2. Connie can crop - Reuse reduce recycle - I'm using a book for the journal, the bits of papers where left over that a fellow crafter gave me instead of throwing away (you can see the bottom piece of paper is one that had been used for dies or something of the sort).
  3. Crafty hazelnuts patterned paper - Anything goes using patterned paper
  4. A bit more time to craft - Anything goes
  5. Creatalicious challenges - Anything goes with the option of flowers - used a digi that had a flower on it.
That's it for this post.  Hope you like what I have done and will go and check out the newsletter!

  1. Sketch saturday - Sketch
  2. Lemon shortbread challenge - Anything goes

I have some birthdays coming up and I really needed to get going on making some cards.  I have been slacking in that respect recently.

There's a totally fabulous sale over at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy store and it's up until the 3rd of April.  There are tons of images for 1.5$ instead of 3$.  Such a great great deal!!!!

For this card I'm using the Rosie Chick image.  And I wasn't sure what to do for this card so I went and checked out Wednesday Sketch over at Outlawz and as usual they had a great sketch which ended up being the base for my make.

Here is my card
The paper that I used for this is from Kaisercraft - Confetti.  I added a little ribbon, a flower from prima.  The image was cut using the grand nestabilities oval dies.  I used a great sentiment that my friend Lisa from Decosse dynamite Doodles.  The image was colored with my copics.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Outlawz Wednesday Challenge - Sketch
  2. Just-add-ink - Just add criters
  3. Creative knockouts - Anything goes
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a great Saturday and get to be creative!!!

I hear you - new digi from Sandra Caldwell


Hey everyone!!!  There's a brand new release of images today by Sandra Caldwell.  You can find them in the store here.  And while you are there, check out the fabulous sale that she has going on until April 3rd!  Lots of digis are 1/2 price!!!!  Yes they are only 1.5$.

The digi that I'm using today is called 1470 I Hear Ya. It really reminded me of one of my sons so I had to use it to prepare his b-day card. His b-day is coming up in the month of April.


I have so many papers in my stash that I'm not sure anymore which sets this comes from.  I added some buttons also from my stash.  The image was colored with copics and then fussy cut out.  The sentiment was found online and I thought it was perfect for him.  He likes to be philosophical.

Happy Friday to you all!  I'm so tired this week it's crazy... and we lose one sleeping hour on the weekend... that will be HARD lol.  But at least spring is coming and that is good.  Right now however it's still really really cold so we are still feeling as though it's still winter.

Anyway, Sandra has made some great new release images!  And I'm sharing one with you all.  Just love it.  It was perfect to send a little hello to my stepmom who loves rabbits.  So I made her a postcard.  You can see the process here:

and here is the look at the postcard finished!  It's a real mixed media piece because there's loads on there.

I have used paints, ribbon, tissue paper, left over other papers and to finish it off a pitt pen marker all this on a cereal box cardboard.


The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut.  I made the sentiment in a word document and fussy cut it out as well.  On the back end side there's a postcard blank base that was stamped on white paper.

You can see the making of this journaling out of the box (JOOTB) in the following video


And here is a closer look at the piece.

Bloom with sunshine - Mixed media journaling

Hey everyone!  How is the week going for you?!?  In my case I need more sunshine!  And I have done just the perfect spread for this.  I have used the new freebie of The East wind if you are registered for the newsletter here.

I really needed to do some journaling!  and bright colors!

You can see the making of this here


And here is the spread.  I have used some acrylic paints as well as stencils and left over bits of papers.


The stamping was done with a silicone mat.  I have colored the image with my copics and then fussy cut her out.  The sentiment is an altered card that I got in a swap!  Just love it and needed to include it in my make.  I didn't want it to be fixed permanently because my swap partner made this beautiful on both sides... So really wanted to be able to still see the other side.  I used some washi tape to fix some acetate down to make a pocket.  That's why you see the glare.

I'm entering this spread in the following challenges:

  1. Digi choosday - Anything goes
  2. Ikes world challenge blog- Anything goes with twist of a sentiment ( there's one on the card that I used)
  3. Glitter n sparkle challenge blog - Anything goes
  4. We love 2 create - Anything goes
  5. More mixed media challenge - anything goes
That's it for me!  Hope you have a great day!!!

Another Birthday oh my

Hello!  I'm back with another birthday card.  Told you last week that I had LOADS to do... I wasn't lying lol  I wanted to make this one all weekend but I felt really bad... to the point that my daughter actually forced me to stay sitting down doing nothing.

Not easy getting old, body parts hurt.... and blood pressure goes haywire on you for no apparent reason just here and there....  oh well that is life isn't it. And speaking of getting old here is the birthday card that I was talking about.  I used another fabulously glamourous girl from Sandra Caldwell called Miss Lula Mae.  She's on special until tomorrow at 1.5$ what a great deal here.  And she's on special because there's a contest on FB group page to use her!!! That contest also ends tomorrow.  So join in!!!  You will see the link in the challenges that I'm entering because of course you KNOW I will be joining in.

Now there's also over at Outlawz for the entire month a sponsoring from Sandra for the sketch challenge.  So I figured I would use that fab sketch this week again. It really helps because I haven't been doing many cards recently so it's great to have a starting point.  And my card from last week was showcased this week!!!  I was super excited about that.

I had a strip of paper (maybe it was given to me... I don't remember) and it was 2 sided.  Just perfect for this card.  That was the starting point.  Then I really wanted to punch this up a bit hence the yellow :)  I was really wondering what to use for the corner instead of a flower because I wanted it to stay fairly flat (it's going oversea...).  When looking around I found a jar of buttons of odd shapes that I had gottern as a gift from my dad going to garage sale!  Score!!!  The image was colored with my copics.  I added gel roll pen on the glasses and the jewelry.  And the glasses where layered with glossy accent.  The sentiment is from Imagine that.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Outlawz challenges sketch challenge
  2. Sandra Caldwell FB group - glam girls
  3. Corrosive challenges - Anything goes
  4. Crafty friends challenge blog - Anything goes
  5. Brown sugar challenge - Rhinestone and/or ribbon - went with ribbon
That's it for me for tonight!!!  Hope you have a great evening.
