Hello Hello....Let's do Digital!!

Hey Everyone...I hope you are all doing well this afternoon....So as my always revolving way of wanting to do things and thinking about 'does something bring me happiness'....I've decided I want to move more and more into digital scrapbooking.....I've owned several software programs through the years but the one I seem to continue to back to is:

My Discout Code:  STMMMS19322

So this is the program I'm going back to once again....and I decided why not sign up to be an Affiliate for them......so I'm excited....I'm going to be working on digital layouts in the coming days, weeks, months....trying to get past this wedding as well....and thought I would let you go on my journey showing you the layouts I create.....

I'm excited about this.....just as I was when I decided to go to the tank 12" printer......and the exciting thing is it will be so super simple for me to print out my 12"x12" digital layouts once completed and add them to the albums for my kiddos....

Just wanted to drop in and share that with you all...I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day.....I do hope you'll stop by again...until next time...Wishing you all a very blessed day!!

Good Morning.......

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday to you all!! I hope you all were able to enjoy a wonderful weekend...they just seem to zoom by faster and faster each time don't they.....
I have been so into working on things for my youngest son's upcoming wedding (Sept 22nd) that I've not done much else...BUT...I did find time to create 1 scrapbook page of my oldest son when he was 4....to date myself...he's 32 now!!

Isn't he a cutie!!! :)  This mama isn't partial one bit!!!

So I thought if anyone might be interested....I would share with you a couple of the files I created for this layout.....

If you would like to have these images....which are also cutting files you can click on the images and you will be directed to my Dropbox account where you can download the format you need. I've create them in the following format: Silhouette, SVG, PDF

Now...I thought I would share with you for anyone who might be interested....I have decided to destash my stamps.....I do not enjoy stamping as so many do...it's just not my creative thing and does not bring me joy.....so I have divided them up with sets and have listed them for sell on My ETSY Store....at what I consider to be very reasonable prices....If your interest...I would love for you to check them out and snag them while you can....it's first come first serve...once their gone their gone...

Okie Dokie...that does it for me today....I wish you all a very blessed week ahead and hope you will come by to visit with me again soon...Until then....

Good Morning to You all....

Good Morning All....it's me again...I'm doing my best to make this a normal routine again...I'm back with you today to share with you a couple of other pieces I created a couple weeks back.....in a few swaps from a group I was a member of.....I hope the recipients of them enjoyed them....I know I had alot of fun making them and personalizing them for the ladies they went to....
This first one was for a CD Swap.....The lady it went to had recently gotten a rescue doggie.....and it's just the sweetest thing and loves his new mommy to pieces...she had shared a pic of him with the group...so I knew I wanted to gear her CD towards her doggie...Here's what I came up with...

Isn't her doggie adorable....I had fun making this and I hope the recipient enjoyed it....

So this next piece I'll share is for a swap with a beach/summer theme....may not have that wording exact....but it's very like minded.....The person it went to enjoys spending time at the SEA though she does not swim she loves to hear the seagulls and the eat at the restaurants by the SEA.....though seafood isn't a favorite of hers.....
This is a very dimensional card.....and lots of texture.....




The phrase on the front and the phrase on the inside I cut with my Silhouette Cameo and used black matte vinyl.....I'm enjoying using vinyl to cut my phrases and adhering them to my projects...
You can see how must texture is on the front of the card...I used Gloss Medium Heavy Gel on the card...coloring the top part with Blue Lagoon Distress ink into the Gel Medium....on the bottom part of the card I added sand on top of the Gel Medium....to give a beach texture of the sand....then hit the edges with gathered twigs.....used some of the gathered twigs distress ink into the textured sand medium I added to the PDC Cat Tails Cut File......and then I also added some of my homemade "stones" to give an added dimension.
To make the "stones" I just used Paper Air Dry Clay......and it makes them super light and look just like the ones you can purchase....
The boat I used is one I had left over from a project I did some time back.....and had cut the PDC Row Boat out of wood paper...just love the how it looks realistic....

Ok...now I thought I would share with you a few files I created to make the card above....and then a couple files I created while making the Wedding Album I shared the other day.....these items I can share as they are because you can fill with whatever digi papers you have......the other borders and things I can't share because they are truly linked to the digi images I purchased and wouldn't work well with just any image....Anywho...here's the ones I feel I can share with no issues...just click on the images below and they will take you to the location in my dropbox folder where you can download them.....





Okie Dokie.....That's about it for me for today!!!! I hope you all enjoyed the post and might find the files useful....Would love to hear your thoughts....AND...if you would like to see certain files...please drop me a message....perhaps it's something I an create......I want to thank you all for stopping by to visit with me.....I would like to wish you all a very blessed week....and I hope you'll stop by again soon....Until next time...

Happy Hump Day....

Hello Everyone...Hope you are all doing well this evening!!! I'm rather late on getting my blogpost done....but I was determined to get it completed before I went to bed this evening....I spent the afternoon tweeking my blog and my ARTHaven....Always something to tweek in our rooms isn't there!! ;)
I thought I would share with you a tag I created a few weeks back for a Patriotic Tag Swap I was involved in.....the vision I had for this tag actually came through into the finished product so I was quite happy!!! Here's the  tag....


There is alot of dimension in this tag and I just absolutely love how it turned out...I created a grungy star stencil with my Silhouette Cameo so That I would create star texture on the base of my watercolor paper.....once that dried I pulled out some water colors and did the red at the top and blue at the bottom.....dried with my heat gun then used some red and blue distress ink to give a touch more color to the 2 areas.....added fun foam to the back of the watercolor paper and then adhered that to the red cardstock...and attached both of those to the blue cardstock....added some of the stencil cutouts of the stars to the white layer for another layer on the card....added and eyelet to the top of the tag....used Mixed Media Adhesive to add the metal embellishments and the button.....I cut the banner label with my Silhouette Cameo as well as the phrase "Let Freedom Ring!!" with black mat vinyl. Added a bow to the top and fibers.....this turned out to be quite a nice card and I'm very happy with  it!!!

So....I have a question....I am contemplating joining a stamp/card kit club of some kind.....just not really sure what's all out there.....Would some of you please give me feedback on what your favorite ones are??? I know I don't like the childish/cuteish images....I don't want to jump into several all at once...I'd really like to dip my toe in and see if it's something that will bring me joy....know what I mean.....I watch alot of Youtube videos of the amazing fun so many of you have with these kits....I've just never jumped on that bandwagon as of yet.....So...please let me here from you.....

I would also love to hear what you think of my tag........As always...THANK YOU so very much for stopping by and visiting with me...Means more than you know...I wish you all a very blessed week...and hope to see you again very soon!!! Until next time...
