Simply Betty Challenges: Mini Album

It’s my first “official” challenge with Simply Betty Stamps! I love being on both of Betty’s amazing teams! I am part of the “Scrap Team” of SBS, though I am quite sure you will see me play along with the “Card Team” from time to time! Today’s challenge is to make a mini album in a box. And we SBS gals will be featuring the Jude and the Rockers collection for your inspirational pleasure.

Truth be told. I don’t think this album is quite finished yet. I need to add some more little things here and there. Maybe a few small stamps, maybe a few more rhinestones. It’s just not “done” in my eyes yet. Plus, I am thinking of adding some more pages, as my sister Monica took over 200! :) But it’s still cute as is! Take a look. And hey! I upcycled!

I love the coasters you get for your drinks at Outback. They’re nottoo thick, and most of them have a fabulous creamy background color that takes paint beautifully. So, that’s what I used to make my book. Plus, they are 4x4”, so they are perfect for wallet sized photos.

I have 4 images from the Jude and the Rockers collection in my book. And they all worked so perfectly with it! Here’s Jude, on page 2. You can click on any of my pictures for a larger view.

There’s my husband in our castle! The little castle makes him look even bigger than what he already is! ;) Here you can also see Oscar. I colored all of the Rockers with my markers. And check out that cake! Pam (my other sis, owner of Strange Skin, and fellow Burtonesque Doll) created the whole thing for my kidlings! It’s adorable, right?

The Rocker you see here is Britany. Isn’t she cute? She reminds me of one of the kids’ friends that was at the party.

I do love how the back page came out…Rocker Ali is too darn cute. She really reminds me of my Rhiannon, which if you saw my original post with Ali, you’d really see why. Hmmm…maybe I’ll add some feathers to Ali’s head to match Rhi’s?

So what do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Please be sure to stop by the Simply Betty Challenge Blog to see the rest of the Scrap Team’s rad creations! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

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 "
