Live Each Day Layout

Hi! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing lots of projects featuring flowers and foliage. Today, I am sharing a scrapbook page. Gosh...it's been far too long since I have had one of these up here in Bloggy Land. The photo I used is of my daughter when we went on a trip to Strausburg Railroad in Pennsylvania. Whenever we go there, we ride in an open air car...they are so relaxing, and the breeze that comes in is wonderful. My kids love to lean out (just a little) and let the wind blow through their hair.

My Colors Cardstock: Sky, Plum, Grasshopper, Banana Pepper
DCWV: Corrugated Cardstock, Cork Cardstock
Imagine Crafts: Electric Blue Radiant Neon Ink, Pink Petunia Versa Magic Ink
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue

Directions: 
1. Stamp the Live Each Day image on to Mixed Media Paper using Onyx Black VersaFine ink. Color the image using the Tombow markers listed above. Use letter "P" from the Fitted Frames to cut out the image. Next, use the coordinating "P" frame with Plum My Colors cardstock for a mat. Attach layers with Zip Dry Glue.

2. Use Sky My Colors cardstock as your 12 x 12 base. Using the Big Dots stencil, take a piece of Grasshopper cardstock, make a 12" single row of dots using the Boss Gloss dauber. Sprinkle Tanzanite embossing powder (from the Gemstone Kit) on to the dots and heat set.

3. For the photo, use the letter "R" die to crop it, and then the larger "R" for the mat in Banana Pepper cardstock. Glue wt Zip Dry. I used the large "F" for the corrugated cardboard.

4. I used the little "C" for the cork sheet. I used the Boss Gloss dauber, along with the Cathedral Windows Large stencil. I heat embossed Sapphire powder (also from the Gemstone kit) on to it. Attach to the corrugated piece with Zip Dy. 

5. I inked the Waves and Dots stencil randomly across my Sky background paper using Versa Magic Pink Petunia ink and a sponge dauber. I then sprinkled Shabby Blue embossing enamel over the background and heat set it from underneath. Next, I inked the edges of the background with Electric Blue Radiant Neon ink.. 

6. I glued all of my layers down, and added 3 small pieces of sparkly ribbon for a little more texture. 

You can see the shine of the embossing powders here. The texture too. I love having lots of texture on my scrapbook pages. 


That's it for me today. Please be sure to visit the links below to see more projects from the Stampendous team. 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

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
