Part of My Story


Whether you just love a good book, or if back to school is on your mind you'll want to play along at the A Place To Start Challenge. This time it's "Anything Goes" with an optional twist of "By The Book".
Waffle Flower's latest release has this challenge covered (LOL) perfectly with new book dies, stamps and this cover die called "Book Cover".
I used sticky notes to mask the books and then inked them with a small cosmetic brush. I applied glossy accents to the stacked books to keep the ink off the pages.
I created a shaker with the Book Cover and layered it over some yellow paper that I stamped the sentiment on. I stamped it a few more times in yellow to create a watermark look and filled the shaker with sequins in brown, red and gold. There's even a few apple sequins in there.

Waffle Flower even has strips of adhesive foam tape in the shop that make creating a shaker easy. If you want to get super easy try a shaker cover that goes over the entire panel.
Have a great day!

Enjoy The Day!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a good day! It's hot and muggy here so I'm keeping cool inside. I try to post every day so there's always something new to see here. Today I'm playing along at Passion For Markers Challenge because I love to color.
These pretty florals are from the Waffle Flower Anemone stamp set. I love the clean lines that make this easy to color and gosh I love those raspberries!
I used an oval frame to make the pretty floral the focus of my design. Pattern papers are from the Enchanted Stripes and Enchanted Dots pads. The pads are heavyweight paper with a print on one side and clean white on the other. They're perfect for folding in half to create card bases.
I colored the florals with Copic markers. The fun script sentiment (and die) are included in the Anemone stamp and die set. A sprinkle of dots (also from the Enchanted pack) matches the papers perfectly.

I usually pop elements up with adhesive foam tape but kept it all flat this time because of all the thin long foliage that would be hard to add foam to.
Have a great day! I hope you find some time to play!

Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping by! It's the 8th of the month and that always means it's time for a Reverse Confetti Blog Hop! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from 
Joy Baldwin's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning and get all the details you'll find them here at the blog.
We alternate new releases with existing releases every month. The next new release is next month so this month the team gets to share a project with any set they like.

It's back to school time and while I know all the kids aren't excited for summer to end, headed back to school is exciting too. We didn't have alot growing up so when school time came around it was like Christmas. My Mom would find the best deals on school supplies and reuse whatever was acceptable from the year before.
I always looked forward to that brand new box of crayons. We usually got only the 8 or 12 pack - I was so envious of the kids that got the 24, 48 or sometimes even more! But my little box of brand new unused crayons that still had points was heaven to me.
There's so many images in the School Days stamp set that I made two cards so I could use them all! I kept the layout the same for both to create a duo!
I started with the Split Circles Cover Panel. I cut strips of cardstock and adhered them to the reverse of the panel. In hindsight I think it might have been easier to put double sided tape behind the panel and do an inlay because it was a little tricky cutting the strips the right size.
I topped the panel with See Through Tags - I was originally going to make these shakers but decided the color from the background panel looked good. Copic colored images from the set are adhered in the windows to make scenes.
I think these would be great for teachers or notes of encouragement to  your favorite student! The next step on this hop is my sweet friend April Antonio!

Here's a complete list of all the designers with projects to share today!
