Wings Layouts

Here is my wings layouts for January. I fell right in love with these papers and stamps, not to mention the embellishments and the new spray pen that CTMH came out with in this Wings Workshop Kit. (#G1016)

 Emilee and Olivia a few years back, boy time sure flies when your children grow up before your eyes...
 This next photo has the technique of using the new spray pen the mixture I used was CTMH inks: Blush & Vineyard Berry with a few drops of Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint with water. This technique is so fun a creative way to use your inks in an awesome new way. Create your own background with splashes  of reinker mixture. Another tip was stamping in vineyard berry ink with the Wings stamps shown here in a two steps 1.) Second generation stamping-stamp in ink, stamp on a scrap piece of paper, 2.) then ink stamp again in same color ink but only rolling the edges of the stamp image then carefully place over stamped image to create a two tone look. whoola!! Add a brad and you have your own embellishments.

 Dress up any layout with CTMH's fabulous ribbons, which also included in the Wings Workshop kit. The next photo I stamped the word "joy" from the Bohemian Alphabet (#E1019) stamped once on vineyard berry card stock then stamped on a scrap cut it out and popped dotted it up to give the title some depth, and added another embellishment.
Can you believe that the month of January is over, wow where did that month go. January special will be over soon but rest assured you can still purchase this Wings Workshop Kit in our new Spring/Summer Idea Book that is going live in the morning on February 1st. If you are interested in ordering this lovely kit please feel free to contact me, my contact info is in the side bar.

What I've been Doing!

So after being sick with a head and chest cold, that I still have a small touch of! Life here at the Baker home has been really busy, with school events, teen sleepovers, and snow storms! Life is full....
My oldest daughter Olivia went to a college weekend in Portsmonth at Master's a Christain College program that is totally awesome. Here is a couple of pics she snapped love the first one of the sun peaking through the clouds and of course Miss Olivia herself!!
 And at last I finished my CTMH Banner using the "Wings" Workshop on the go kit-papers and the SOTM Find Your Style stamp set. I also got to play with our New Spray Pen (my mixture was, Blush, Vineyard Berry reinkers and Create a Shade Paint with water) you can see this on the first and last banner pennants.
                                       of course I had to add some rolled paper roses and pearls
with the images I stamped in Black ink and then on another piece of card stock stamped the same image in black again and Versa Mark ink and clear embossing powder, heat set and cut out. used pop dots to give depth.

This banner was so fun to create if you would love to make your own banner, leave me a comment or call me (number on the left side) "My Creations Banner" is $5.95 (8 chipboard pennants with jump rings) and you to can make a adorable banner!!
