Dragonfly Dream Album with Leaky Shed Studio and Altered Pages

Today I am sharing an album I made using Leaky Shed Studio and our partnership with Altered Pages.  The theme for the month was "FLIES".  If you have missed any of the projects that our Leaky Shed Studio designers have made please go on over to Leaky Shed Studios and see the awesome designers work from both Leaky Shed Studio and Altered Pages.

I received an ephemera kit from Altered pages with all kinds of goodies in it such as ribbon, fiber, transparencies, printed dragon flies, tags, pockets and specialty paper.  I decided to make this mini album below.

I chose to use the watch parts from Leaky Shed Studio as tabs for my album pages.  I painted them with metallic gold acrylic paints and decorated them with rhinestones and glitter.
I used this awesome Iron Leaf Corner from Leaky Shed Studio which I think has become one of my favorites.  I thought it was perfect for the cover of the album and added to the theme.
If you haven't tried Leaky Shed Studio chipboard yet .... you need to get some :)  Go on over to Leaky Shed Studio website and look around.  You can also get the chippies at

Happy Scrapping,

Red, White and Blue 4th of July with Art Anthology

Hi, happy 4th of July! My cards are being featured over at Art Anthology today.  I think they turned out so patriotic and puts me in the mood for fireworks and BBQ's at the beach.

I had lots of white flowers and wanted a layered look for my first card.  I then used colorations to spray my RED, WHITE and BLUE.

My second card is created using an old journal genie and Art Anthology stone effects and sorbet

Stay safe, remember your sun block and Happy 4th of July

Posies and Art Anthology

Hi, I am so excited about sharing today.  My Posies Canvas is being featured over at Art Anthology today and I think it turned out so cute. I really enjoyed making this piece and using all of the fabulous Art Anthology product.

I started off with preparing my canvas and adding some sticks for depth and texture.

I then started to paint my canvas and also added yarn to my posie "stems".   I also added different shaped die cut leaves.

I then sprayed my cardstock with Art Anthology colorations and cut my flowers.  I added stone effects "brick" because the color is beautiful and it also gave more tooth to my flowers so that I could manipulate them.


I posted more photos over at the Art Anthology Blog, so go on over and see what the other design team ladies have created.

Thank you for stopping by, happy scrapping ...
