Lot's of Crafty Inspiration!

Hello friends!
Time for a brand new issue of Create magazine! It's the free scrapbook and papercraft magazine that I happily design for. Packed full of 291 pages of inspirational layouts and articles. This issue features the company Doodlebug Designs. Scrapbook Generation is offering 20% off all Doodlebug products at scrapbookgeneration.com from March 9-15 to celebrate this collaboration! (No coupon code necessary. Discount shows at checkout.)

Scrapbook Generation is also where I'm fortunate to be working! I love helping people find their supplies and filling online orders. It's fun to gather up orders and see what other people want to purchase.

Here's a peek at one of my contributions to this issue. A layout featuring Doodlebug products with photos of my Grandfather and I back in the 90's. I have such wonderful memories of their farm and playing in his garden.

Wishing you all a wonderful day, Lindsey

Playing with Paper and Ink

He'll friends,
What better way to start off the first day of national craft month than to play with some new tools and supplies. I have been seeing many stampers blogging about how much they love their new MISTI stamp tool and decided it was time for me to jump on board. After watching a few YouTube videos and playing with it can say it really is a super awesome tool for getting exact beautiful stamped  images. I think now I need to expand my stamp collection! Also new for my stash was the line of Abandoned Coral Distress Inks. This is part of the new color a month release that Ranger is doing this year and I am loving it. I'm not usually a fan of coral shades but this one is lovely. So I sat down to just play with the color and try out some stamping, so I started with a manila tag and then colored my image in with distress markers and Prima watercolor pencils. Added a bit of shimmer with Wink of Stella markers and a few embellishments. 

Here's a full list of supplies used :
Tag- Ranger, ink - Ranger and Memento, stamps - Tim Holtz and October Afternoon, pencils - Prima, flowers - I Am Roses, stick pin - Maya Road, markers - Ranger and Wink of Stella, punch - Martha Stewart, charm - Tim Holtz, ribbon - Hug Snug, stencil - Tim Holtz

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey
