Quick Quotes Pocket Letter Adventure Awaits

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with a fun way to use up some product and share with a friend.
I am using items from the June Club Q kit along with paper from Adventure Awaits paper pack, Quotes and Phrases from Adventure Awaits, and Anchors Aweigh Chipboard Die Cuts.

 Using Adventure Awaits AD105, and AD100 I cut 9 rectangles measuring 3.75" x 2.5". These are the front and back pages of the pockets. The front of the pocket is a sentiment from the Anchors Aweigh Chipboard Die Cuts, and another is in one of the pockets.

After filling all the pockets with fun items from the June Club Q kit that I had left over, I added the chipboard sentiment on the front, along with a cute little pirate girl that my friend Meghan colored. I printed the image with my Canon Selphy printer and cut it out with my Scan N Cut.
This project is being sent to a friend who just returned home from her first visit to the beach in her life. I am sad she did not choose to visit Florida for that trip, but from what she has said she had fun none the less. She is also new to scrapbooking so this I thought would be a great way to send her some supplies.

Little Monsters- Joy Clair Blog Hop Day 2

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my inspiration post using our new Color By Faith set called Little Monsters. These little guys are simply adorable, and this was the first set out of our kit that I started playing with.

This was a fun one, I took out the mini misti and arranged the stamps around the edge of an A2 panel that I had cut to 5" x 3.75". I then used my Memento Dew Drops to stamp each word in Rainbow Pattern.
While that dried I colored the little monsters with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The box is a die from Neat & Tangled, cut on DCWV card stock.

I hope you enjoyed this project, and use it to provide some inspiration for your own project.

Fly With Me, Joy Clair Blog Hop Day 1

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my creation using the Joy Clair stamp set titled "Fly With Me".


I have to say I get so excited when we see the new product coming out, and in most cases as soon as it is at my door I already have paper chosen and ready to go, so that I can stamp, cut and get busy with it. This set was no exception, I had my plan ready and I think it worked out pretty good.


I used Recollections 110 lb cardstock for the base and sprayed it with Summer Sky Fireworks spray from Imagine Crafts. All images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. I used a combination of Bic Mark-It's, Sharpies, and Spectrum Noirs to color the Hot Air Balloons, and finished them off with Silver "Wink of Stella".
I really love this set and have a few more ideas that I have sketched out using it, just have to sit down and work it.

I hope you have enjoyed this project, and it has given you some inspiration to put it to work for yourself.


Let's start the fun with the creativity and remember that we always have prizes for our readers and visitors that comment HERE on our corporate blog and on ALL designer blogs.

Quick Quotes and Mommy's Little Diva

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today with a project that I just love. The design team here at Quick Quotes received some new paper last month and I found a sheet that the front and back was absolutely perfect for my project.

 My little 9 month old granddaughter is my inspiration for this post. My daughter sent me the proofs from her 9 month photos and this was PERFECT. The shoes she is standing it are my daughters wedding shoes, as seen in the photo on the lower right corner.
The poem in the middle I found on Google and it was actually written using the masculine form of Daddy and Dad, but hey, switch it up to make it work. I had fun with this and was able to use my Canon Selphy to print the photos and the sentiment on 4x6 photo paper. I used my steel dies and my Big Shot to cut down the images to the correct size. The pattern paper is from Serenade paper pack, and the gridded green is the reverse side of this page.

Serenade QQP-SR101- coming soon

Sunsational Stamps Goes Camping

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn the Crafty Mimi here with my inspiration for the August Sunsational Stamps challenge. 

When working on this project I used a digital image called "Camp More, Worry Less". I printed out 3 sets of the trees and colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, varying the colors to let the moon lite show the shadows. All other images were also colored with the Zigs. The starry background is cut with a die using my bigshot, and layered with yellow-gold glitter paper.
The main background I used distress inks to create by blending Chipped Sapphire, Mustard Seed, Pine Needles, Dusty Concord, Broken China and Black Soot.

Butterfly Kisses with Joy Clair

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn the Crafty Mimi here with a post using the Joy Clair Butterfly Kisses stamp set and a fun but easy technique.

 Clear Stamps - Butterfly Kisses Clear Stamp - Joy Clair - 1
Butterfly Kisses



First thing I did was use one of my wavy dies and made 2 cuts in a 4.25" x 5.5" panel, I then used a pencil to mark my lines on an A2 card base. 
Next I stamped the large butterfly spray from the stamp set and added in the extra butterflies from the set using Memento Tuxedo Black Dye ink. 
I followed that up with using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color in the images. 
The sentiment is stamped using Grape Jelly Memento Dye Ink. 
I used foam tape to adhere the panels I had already cut, and then added this dimensional flower from my stash. 
3 gold sequins finished off my project for today. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project and hope you come visit again soon. Your comments are always read and are very valuable.

ATSM Challenge 253 Holiday Theme

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today with Addicted To Stamps and More Challenge Blog with Challenge #253, Holiday Theme.

Today's post was made with card stock, 1 die, washi tape, 1 Joy Clair stamp and 3 pearls. Love the clean and simple that comes out of my craft room sometimes.

First I used a Red card base made of Recollections 110 lb card stock. I then took black and white card stock of the same brand, layered them to fit and put them through my big shot one pass with one die to cut on the angle.
I checked my washi tape collection for two that looked good together for this project, and then adhered them.
The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black with a Joy Clair stamp from the Merry Christmoose Set.
I followed that up with 3 red pearls and my project was complete.

I hope you have enjoyed this project. Thank you for stopping by, your comments are valuable.
