CE Challenge

Hi crafty friends,  I have one last Christmas share before the new year.

Today I decided to take on the Creative Embellishments Challenge..

Right after dinner I headed up to my craft room and completed a card and then finished a layout that has been sitting on my desk since before Christmas. yikes!

I kept them both fairly simple as I like to see my vision right away. (I know I know..patience...NOT!)

What inspired me for this card was the brick fireplace in the inspiration picture on the CE Blog.

 I used heavy gesso with my brick stencil, a little red spray and some flowers..I am a big fan of CE chipboard so here I used the Braided Circle Frame to highlight my sentiment.

On the layout - again inspired by the season and the cozy fireplace in the inspiration photo on the CE Blog..

I used items from the December kit from Flying Unicorn along with a CE frame sprayed and tucked beside the picture.. I love this picture of my daughters snow covered boots that keep her cozy and warm and had to do something with it..(oops I see now it is crooked..will have to fix

I sure hope I have inspired you to create and preserve your winter pictures.

Until next time....

take care, hugs

Hi crafty friends....Its been a very hectic few weeks and I haven't posted in way too long.. Life and handmade projects have been keeping me very busy..

With Christmas upon us I thought I'd share a Prima frame I altered this past week. My inspiration came from seeing one done in The Inked Stamper by Dawn Pritchard. Her inspiration came from Frank Garcia..

I really enjoyed doing this project and will probably do another in the future.. I love the rolled paper effect.

To all of my family and friends both near and far. From my home to yours, we wish you peace, joy and happiness. May you be surrounded with love and memories this holiday season and throughout the new year. Merry Christmas everyone! Love and hugs to you all!
