A little mixed media yesterday...using Creative Embellishment creations...

If I had to list my top fav scrapbooking companies, Creative Embellishments is definitely in my top 5.  I love all their creations that they laser cut.  I like to use them as is or decorate them up with inks, paints or should check them out here.  I layered the CE chipboard over a tin that had a heart already on it.  Then added everything else, including a little CE love piece.  

I also wanted to point out another new product I have been working with, Beacon Makers Mix.  A light concrete mix that dries in about 30-40 minutes.  The flowers are made from the mix, left plain and attached with Beacon's Mixed Media Glue...nice and tacky and holds really quickly to all types of items.

A few randoms from recent creative times....

Just a couple of layouts from Miss Lizzy crop a few weekends ago.... the second one is an ode to the Scrapbook Nerd girls who had their great shop at the event.

When two great companies and one great event come together!

Check out this pin up board I created and taught at Scrapfest Kitchener!  Using a multitude of embellishments 24 of us make several projects using the contents of mason jar full of goodness we made 6 different projects.  This one was the main one!  During the class I introduced the girls to Beacon 3 in 1 glue which held our project together great!  I also incorporated another company into the mix Canvas Corp Brands, the denim flower, cord, paper feathers and cloths pins were a great addition to the projects.  We also made a journal, cards, a decorated mason jar and bookmark.

Row Row Sail Your Boat

Another little project for the Canvas Corp Crew using denim!  Picked up some drift wood along a walk one day and it came together seamlessly....replica of our sailboat!  The 79 is the year our boat was make, an oldie but a goodie.  Take note of that cute little anchor from &Gypsies.  Canvas and waxed cord from Canvas Corp Brands

A little canvas for today....

Messing a bit today, I love these birds.....Beacon 3 in 1 works great on big metal items!  Love my Beacon Glue!

Canvas Corp Denim Projects

On the Canvas Corp blog you will find a round up of projects made with denim and Canvas Corp products.  It was cool to see how everyone use denim into their projects.  I had fun making them and cutting up a old pair of jeans!  Here is a link to the denim post on the Canvas Corp blog and here are more photos of one of the projects I made.

Cell phone holder - this was made from the back pocket of my jeans, I added some Canvas Corp natural canvas fringe around the edges by plucking out some of the threads from the canvas.  I also added a handle make from Kelly Panacci Happy Flappers fabric. The handle is pinned to the pocket with 7 Gypsies Antique Pins.  Of course the flower and dragon fly is from my stash and the whole thing is put together with  Beacon 3 in 1 Glue.

Zipdry retails in Canada for 13.99 at M' it is worth coming just for the glue! Very limited spots available! Sneak peak below as well. Fun summer double pager!  All proceeds go to the foundation.

Whoo Loves You......

Cute little owl isn't she! A lot of you know I love taking pictures of owls but have never really crafted one before. I bought the base from Michaels and covered in paper.  I found the silver leaves at Lens Mills store and thought that they looked like feathers so decided to cover the chest, wings and part of its head in silver leaves!  I added Stamping UP! metal buttons for the eyes! Paper was attached with Zipdry glue and the leaves attached with Beacon 3 in 1 Glue. This glue is great for placing items and having them adhere quickly.

Stuck on Succulants!

For some reason I am stuck on looking at succulants lately...on Pintrest, the web etc...I think it is in the hope that I can plant some soon in my garden...I think Spring it finally here.  I have a little plan to put some succulants on our deck in some cute little hanging containers I found at the dollar store.  But until then been playing with faux ones.  I made this cute little container with Canvas Corp products...the flower is removable....come on over to the Canvas Corp blog to read more about how it was made and the products used Keep an eye out here for more projects with succulants!
