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!
