CSI Case File #231



Hello there! I am excited to share that I am a Guest Detective with C.S.I. Color, Stories, Inspiration. This is my first time playing along with this scrapbooking challenge, and I am really excited to join in with Case File #231.

Here is the Case File.

I thought that the Case File had so many great elements and aspects to it, and I knew I wanted to use photos from the lake that is near our home. I found some fun pictures from one of the times we walked our dogs to the lake. Looking over the case file, I was inspired by the mushrooms, and used a few from Stampendous. They were colored with Memento Markers and then fussy cut. My layout's background was made by stamping the Summer Leaves Perfectly Clear set all over with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink.

The Case File prompted us to have our journaling inside of a pocket, which I made out of a deep green cardstock. I wrote about how we love to explore the beauty of what is practically in our own backyard. I stamped a few images from Stampendous on the pocket and heat embossed it with gold powder.

Here's the cute little frog that I colored, and you can see how pretty the leaves look in the background. 

I've got to say, doing this Case File was a great challenge, and a lot of fun. I will be playing along again soon for sure! Thank you so much to the C.S.I.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
