Hey that's ME!
I am a mom for two beautiful daughters, a wife of 23 years to a wonderful man. I enjoy sharing my love for scrap booking, card making, stamping and altered art.I love everything about primitives, weathered worned, tattered and torn, shabby chic, country and cottage simply living.
I am a vintage scrap/flea market junkie so you could call me a "scrap junkie"!!
I am currently on Canvas Corp Brands-Market Contributor, and so thrilled to be returning for another term on Die~Namites Design Teams...I have designed for Marion Smith Designs, Artist Addicts Blog Author, More Paper Than Shoes as well as Die~Namites past design teams.
I create everyday always with a "CUP" ok a "POT" of COFFEE...YES I LOVE Coffee...it keeps me going in my creative mind...plus you can use the leftover coffee to distress your papers!!
What a great way to celebrate this LOVE Day...than with one of our first Canvas Corp Brands Challenges (see more canvas art on the Canvas Corp Brands blog...they asked us to come up with a canvas to best defines us as a creative person and designer...our style that best suits us. I knew from the moment I saw 7gypsies "Gypsies Moments" new paper line and 4 x 4 canvas. I started gathering my vintage shabby chic treasures I have laying around my home...to inspire me everyday.
I also wanted to create my canvas with a "heart with wings"
and my love for vintage mother of pearl buttons...
Part of the challenge was to share a story about who we were going to give our Valentine to.
My story is this...
As I sat at my creative table looking at the blank Canvas Corp Kraft Card & Envelope, tapping my finger my eyes happen to glance down to the tote filled with amazing products from Canvas Corp Brands...my eye spied popping "RED" burlap sheet! I said that's it!!!
I knew I wanted the pop of "RED" with Kraft was made for each other.
It all started rolling..as I was aging the Kraft tag, and distressing the edges of the hearts...My hubby walked by and says oh my that is so cool and pretty.
I love it when he does this! I always enjoy creating something for him right out in the open with him walking by making cute remarks. Like how he loves this or that and for this card he was so taking in by the pop of red with the black and Kraft. He is my biggest fan and loves what I design and create.
He is My Valentine!
The "Love Wishes" banner was such a fun idea...I didn't have alot of Valentine papers...but I did have the new Canvas Corps "His & Hers" Wedding paper. I fussy cut the words, distressed the edges, added to a piece of Kraft scrap. Adorn it with my favorite Vintage Mother of Pearl Buttons adhered down over the stack of hearts. LOVE IT!
Part of our Challenge was to decorate our envelopes as well...I knew I wasn't
mailing my card, so I created a mini sample of my card.
