Waffle Flower Challenge – Guest Designer

I am so honored to be a guest designer for the current Waffle Flower challenge. I love Waffle Flower stamps and was so excited to participate in this challenge. Here is the beautiful inspiration photo & color combo for the challenge.

IΒ love the light & airy look of the photo – I was inspired to get out my mists and do a little spraying! I haven’t done this in a while and it was a lot of fun to get messy.

IΒ did a combination of blues and mints for the hexagon background and did a few splatters with a dark green. The flower and sentiment are from the In Every Way stamp set and I just adore the large, scripty font. The flower was quickly watercolored. I stamped & die cut the leaf from Feather More in Gold Delicata ink – my all time favorite gold ink.

Elle’s Studio April Kit Reveal

Hello Elle’s Studio fans! This month’s kit is amazing – full of so many gorgeous journaling cards and embellishments – and, bonus – it matches all of the Cienna line perfectly.Β Lucky for me, I’m so behind on my Project Life, I was able to put all my April goodies to use for last April’s spreads – ha! First up, here is a look at the gorgeous kit:

And here is my spread – I used lots of Cienna embellishments, along with some of the great journaling cards featured in this kit.

Be still my grey & yellow loving heart. This kit had some many gorgeous color combos to choose from – you will get so much mileage out of it. I also was a little apprehensive at first that it wouldn’t fit with all the pictures of my little guy, but it was really adaptable for a little boy, so fear not boy moms!

Next up, a quick card using some Cienna paper and embellishments, along with a few bits from the April kit. I love the mix of the wood, vellum, staples and stitching – lots of fun textures going on.
