Good Morning!

  Well,  with summer on our doorstep, school letting out and picnics everywhere, I was feeling a bit nostalgic for some retro crafting. I was inspired by Carta Bella Paper's line Homemade With Love.
This is a kitchen piece I came up with. Enjoy!










If this is something you'd like to see more of on my blog, please comment!
I'm looking forward to sharing a whole lot of creations with you this summer:)
Thanks for stopping  by ~ Jackie <3

Hello friends!

It's been a chilly, rainy May in my hometown. I hope everyone else is having a sunny spring:)
In the meantime... I thought I'd share some of my Prima Marketing Design Team Creations, because Prima definitely reminds me of sunshine! 



 A Layout of the first sunflower my girls planted~ 
using Prima embellishments, flowers and Zephyr paper. 
The different shades of yellow and green are so 
cheerful and fun!








An olive oil bottle I've altered for a flower vase ~ I just loved the
green glass and thought it really complimented the Prima Paper.

A selection of Julie Nutting Prima Dolls I've "dressed" for
tags, pocket letters and my art journal cover.

I hope everyone's Easter was wonderful:) I know we're all looking forward to Spring flowers. Before we know it, we'll be celebrating Mother's Day, Graduations and Summer! Here's a recent Julie Nutting Doll Tag I made using scraps of paper I've been saving... I love how it turned out:)

Happy Spring to everyone! I really love the vibrant colors that we start to see in March & April, but I'm going to share a few of my recent projects that really emphasize my affinity for neutrals. I guess I just love that earthy, natural look... I've started to experiment with mixed media and I find that I can see the transformation of the piece with these tones. I finished my first Art Journal page recently. I titled it "Journey", because that's what I'm on in this stage of my life... A creative journey:)

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

 Well I'm just so excited! I've been working on some fun and exciting projects for the Graphic 45 Design Team Audition, and now I'm going to share them with YOU! I have admired and desired the wonderful collections that this company has made available to us crafting artists for years. I so enjoy the vintage style, but am particularly drawn to the overall message of the company,
Be you! Be creative! Take chances! Enjoy life, family and friends! So, with that in mind, I present to you my recent Graphic 45 inspired creations :)

                                        Enchanted Mirror~

A Graphic45 inspired Wall Hanging~
