Easter Baskets - Craft O'Clock

Good morning!
I am excited to share some really cute Easter Baskets I made. I wanted to create something cute and when my friend Jenny came over for a crafting day we each created a few of this super cute baskets with the fabulous Spring Charm collection and a die from I-Craft. 

I created one for each of our boys and one for our sons girlfriend using the 6x6 paper pack

For Cody's basket I fussy cut images from the Extras Set. I added his name to a small tag I also fussy cut

For Ty's Basket I also cut images from the Extras Set

For Rylee's basket I cut images from the Flowers Extra Set

Our sons (and girlfriend) are in their 20's now but we still do an Easter Egg Hunt!  I have small plastic Easter Eggs that fit in the baskets and I will fill them with candy and hide the basket on Easter morning!

Good Things Come - Creative Embellishments

Good morning!
Sometimes simple is good.  Not every layout has to have a million elements, or the newest trend or be a piece of art....sometimes a simple layout with a few great elements is perfect

I kept the layout simple and sweet.

I used the small hexagon stencil with texture paste

I inked parts of the fishing set.

Then I added the inked title

Simple but effective!

One Lucky Lady

 Good morning!

I really believe I am one lucky lady to have such an awesome family.

After layering all the beautiful Prima Indigo papers I fussy cut three frames out of one of teh papers

I also created 10 small flags for accent pieces

I added some Prima Flowers (and some from my stash) and some Prima Crystals

By adding some cardboard I was able to achieve some dimension with my layers

Make Her Laugh - Creative Embellishments

 Good morning!
I am back today to share a mixed media layout of my fabulous husband and I!

My hubby makes me laugh is one of the many reasons I love him....

After tearing and prepping the Craft O'Clock paper with clear gesso I used small circle stencil with colored texture paste, then used sprays and pigment powders on the stenciled areas.

The Leafy Vine Frame was inked with speckled egg distress ink and then accented with copper paint and the Fancy Filigree Flourish was painted copper

I trimmed a piece off of the flourish that would have been hidden by the photo and added to a separate cluster after inking it.

I painted the title which I believe matches the photo perfectly.

Here you can see the dimension

Happy Graduation - Creative Embellishments

Good Morning!
I really enjoy creating mixed media, messy, layered layouts

I started by covering the 3Quarter Designs paper with clear gesso

I used the Small Circles Stencil with texture paste mixed with black paint.  I then used a mixture of sprays and pigment powders on teh stenciled image

I added my inked title piece to finish the layout.
