Spectrum Noir Colorista Blog Hop!

Hey There and Happy Tuesday!  Spectrum Noir and Crafter's Companion have some fabulous new coloring products called the Colorista Collection ~ Card Kits, Premium Marker Pads and fabulous new markers and pencils.  Sara Davies will be presenting these on HSN next Tuesday, August 30th & today we have a fun sneak peek Blog Hop to get you all excited!

I started coloring one of the pages from the Eastern Promise Premium Marker Pad.  I love the paper these pages are printed on... so smooth and easy to color.  I also love the smaller tips on these new markers, perfect for small areas with fabulous coverage and just slightly smaller than the tip on the original Spectrum Noir Markers.

The markers I used are from the Spectrum Noir Colorista Set #1 (Purple, Rose Red, Orchid) & I also used my Spectrum Noir Mark PP2 because I wanted a light pink.

I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to do with my finished piece, but if I color something, I HAVE to make something out of it.  Soooo.... I decided to make a wall hanging for my studio.  It's bright and colorful and I added some pretty bling to it as well.   

Hop along with us & check out the amazing work everyone is creating with this fun collection.  Don't forget to leave your lovely comments along the way because there are fabulous prizes involved and those will be announced on Monday, August 29th on the Crafter's Companion US Blog.

Project Life: A Stop in Barbados

Oh my goodness... life just won't slow down!  I wanted to pop in today and show a few pages from our Spring Break 2015 Album that I recently finished using the Project Life App.  I love this App... it seriously has changed scrapbooking for me.  Don't get me wrong, I love traditional scrapbooking with printed photos, pretty papers and lots of doo-dads.  However, to sit with the family in the evening and be able to scrapbook a few pages and actually feel like I'm getting caught up, THAT is absolutely priceless!

Here are a few pages from our day in Barbados... Meg and I went shopping while the guys tried out paddle boarding.  Everyone had a fun day!

Have a wonderful day!

Spectrum Noir Colorista Collection

Hey There Crafty Friends!  So today I'm sharing some cards I made with the new Colorista Collection from Spectrum Noir.  The cardmaking kit comes with pre-printed foiled & glittered cards, envelopes and card inserts.  All you need to do is pull out your markers and color away.  Super easy to do while watching TV or waiting for your kids in the carpool line.   

Other than the background and the light purple flower, I used only markers from the Spectrum Noir Colorista Set #1.  In addition to the Set #1 markers, for the background I used Spectrum Noir BT1 marker so the flowers and sentiment would really POP off the card.  I also added a light purple flower (card on the left), using the HB1 marker.

Happy Coloring!

A Spooky & Sweet Halloween Party Invite

Hi Friends!  Today I have a fun Halloween Party Invite to share with some pretty fabulous products from Taylored Expressions!  

I used the Sack-It Pumpkin Die set to make this fun Halloween Party Invite along with the Eventful - Halloween stamp set.  When I trimmed the Pumpkin cardstock, I placed the face dies on cardstock and ran everything through at the same time.  Then I trimmed a piece of the dotted patterned paper from the Playful Patterns - Haunted paper pack behind the face.  

I used the RSVP & Eventful Halloween stamp sets to add all the details for the inside of the invite.

Have a Fabulous Day!

TE: Bible Bookmark

Hello Friends!  I hope your week is super amazing!!!  This month the Taylored Expressions designers are sharing lots of projects with the beautiful faith based products in the store so I decided to make a bookmark for my Bible with this lovely stamp called Daughter of the King and the Build A Bookmark die set.  I was so excited when I saw how perfectly this sentiment fit on the bookmark die and stamped/heat embossed it in the TE Sugar Cube White Pigment Ink.

I used the various floral dies that come with the Build A Bookmark.  I trimmed them with the TE Watercolor Cardstock and then used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolor them as well as the background of the bookmark.

Thanks for stopping by & have a Blessed Day!
