Gossamer Blue January Blog Hop!!

 photo inspiration-blog-hop_zps3fb39b32.jpg

Hi Everyone! Welcome back to another month of the Gossamer Blue Design Team Blog Hop!! You should have arrived here from the lovely, talented Joy Taylor's blog. This month the kits were jam packed with gorgeous love themed goodies, including a stencil by Dear Lizzy. Now, I am not a stamper, nor am I a painter, but when I saw that stencil, I decided to try my hand at water color painting. I just placed the stencil on a sheet of white cardstock and painted away! You can still get the stencil in Scrapbook Add-On #2, found right here!Here's how my layout turned out:

Gossamer Blue Projects!!

Happy New Year Everyone!! I'm back today with my recent projects with the Gossamer Blue kits! I loved December and January's kits and wish that I had more time to create with them over the busy holiday season! Now that winter is upon us, I'm hoping for more time in my craft room (and time to finish up my December Memories album!!)

Last Crate Paper Project

Happy Holidays Everyone!! I'm back today with my very last project for Crate Paper! It has been a great two years working with Crate, but ultimately I was finding that I had less and less time to devote to Design Teams so I decided not to reapply to Crate for 2015. Here is my final project, for the Holiday DIY month-long extravaganza over on the Crate blog.
