Magic Happens...

I have had so much fun working with the new Summer Breeze line! The patterned papers are so easy to layer and I love the colors! Today I created another layout of my daughter that highlights the big dreams she has.

The colors in this line of papers are perfect for my daughter's colorful personality!

For the title of my layout, I took one of the Itty Bitty Vellum Quotes  (Sentiments) and attached it to a tag. By adding a little ribbon, I was able to hide the adhesive. I inked the edges of the tag and vellum.

Canvas Prints!

I know everyone who stops by my blog, loves photos and great way to display them. I was recently contacted by Easy Canvas Prints and asked to try their products.... I have to say, I LOVE THEM! I took this photo of my husband and I....

...and turned it into an 11x14 canvas! The photo looks amazing on the canvas and once I framed it, it became the perfect decoration for my husband's office!  :)   (BTW, they will frame it for you if you like!)

Brothers and Sisters!

The new Summer Breeze line is so fun to work with! For today's project, I created a fun canvas to decorate my studio! I'm sure it is no surprise to parents that siblings can have a love/hate relationship sometimes! I decided to create a canvas that celebrates the relationship between my 10 year old daughter and 19 year old son!

This is a flat 9 in. x 12 in. canvas.  I used the PowderPuff Chalking Inks in Tahiti and Very Berry to color the background of the canvas.

 The Vellum Quote (Siblings Share) perfectly says what I wanted to say about their relationship!

I decided to divide the right side of the canvas into 9 equal squares (2.5 in.x 2.5 in.). I added photos to some of them and decorated the others.

I added some beads and wire to my banner for a fun, quick decoration.

The PowderPuff Chalking Inks come in coorinating colors! I used them to make this flower!

All of the coordinating papers work so well together and add to the cheerful tone! Everytime I look at this canvas, it makes me smile! Matt and Lauren will always have a special relationship!
