Resist and Mist


I’m back from the Canadian long weekend and some much needed R & R. It’s been a crazy summer. No vacation in sight as of yet but I’ll take what I can get.

I’m excited to get back to creating thing morning and I’ll be back tomorrow with some new designs. In the meantime, here’s a project that I finally get to share with you.

Stamping and resist techniques are among my favorite things to do. I love the “magic” of the embossed image appearing and adding in all that beautiful color.

Recently I created another video tutorial for Maya Road featuring their beautiful Ornate Butterflies stamp set and their Maya Mists. It’s a beautiful technique and easy to do. Here’s the link.

If you love that butterfly stamp set, Maya Road is also giving away one of these great sets. Check out their post on Facebook for the giveaway for a change to win.

open a window…a window card tutorial

There is something fun and unique about a window card. I love being able to peek inside a card window and get a little glimpse of what is to come.

So how about a window card using chipboard windows? I’m excited to share my sweet and shabby window card featuring Maya Road Chipboard. I  think the window boxes full of pretty blooms are my favorite part.

To help you recreate this card, I’ve put together a video tutorial to share with you. It’s featured today on the Maya Road blog so stop by and check it out.

Happy creating!

on love and mini albums… a tutorial

Combining my love for my guy and my love for mini albums seemed to be the perfect thing to do this Valentine’s Day. It’s a sweet little album that’s 4″x4″ in size so it fits nicely in your hand and can be made in less than a couple hours. Fun!

I’ve really been enjoying working on it, filling it with photos and love quotes with lots of room still to add as the mood strikes me.

This project is created with my new Victoria Park paper line from Lily Bee Design and I’m sharing this project on the Lily Bee Blog today. There’s more photos over there so if you’re curious, take a peek.

This mini album is created with two squares of chipboard and the rest is made from patterned paper. I’ve taped a little video for you to show you how it’s put together. I hope you enjoy it.

And for those of you who wanted to hear me teaching…well, I gave it a whirl. 🙂


Please note: the Victoria Park line products will be shipping at the beginning of March

Have a beautiful day!

Now this is my first one so please, bear with me while I learn a new skill. Seriously…my hat is off to anyone who does these well and on a regular basis. Very, very challenging and it’s a steep learning curve. I’m going to try and keep working on them as I can squeeze in the time. Maybe it will get easier? A girl can hope!
