Friends Having Fun Color Challenge #5

Happy August! It is time for the fifth Color Challenge from Friends Having Fun! Here’s what I wrote on the FHF site:

Hello and welcome to the fifth Color Challenge with Friends Having Fun! The Kaleidoscope Krew have another fabulous set of colors to share with you, as well as some awesome projects to go with them! Here are the colors!

When I first picked these colors, I was inspired by thoughts of Summer and vacations. Walking on the beach on a tropical island at sunset… but that’s me! What do these colors make YOU think of?

I decided to go with a layout of my baby girl…

Sweet-Face-1

I took this picture of her just a couple of weeks ago.. I was taking photos of some items for my Mom’s Etsy shop, and she jumped on the couch and started posing! How could I not take a picture (or 3) of this pretty little face? She looks so sweet here…really not at all like a baby…a little girl.

Sweet-Face-2

I mixed up a whole bunch of patterns as usual…picking things that didn’t appear to really work together…but look pretty cool o the finished page. The plaid paper is from Daisy D’s., The owls are from K & Co., and that funky frame is from DCWV. My plain cardstocks are from Prism. A wacky combination, but I think they all look pretty cool together here! The flowers are from Prima and my letter stickers are from Basic Grey.

Sweet-Face-3

I hope you join us this month at Friends Having Fun. I love to see all of the different ideas people have when looking at a color palate. Please stop by the rest of the Kaleidoscope Krew’s blogs to se what they’ve come up with! Alyssa couldn’t join in this month, but the rest of the Krew really made some beautiful projects!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "

Changes

Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement. I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool. Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at alisonheikkila.com . I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you
