Blog Hop with Hazel & Ruby - Day 1 with Jen

This week we'll be pairing with the fabulous Hazel and Ruby! Each day this week, we’ll post a new project on our blogs. Make sure you hop to both blogs and the Facebook page for more chances to win our giveaways!

I'm the first one to share my project!  I was so excited to get my box of goodies! The Hazel & Ruby Broadside Alpha Stencil-Masks are so much fun!  They are reuseable and are easy to use.  I created this sign for my classroom.  I will be framing it and using it for my gallery wall.  I have a wall that I hang kid's creations that they gift me with from home!  They love seeing their work on the wall and I keep them all in a binder when it's time to switch it up with new work.

Here's how I made this fun creation:

Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before?  I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time.  When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in!  We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it!  It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one.  It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in.  Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

We recently celebrated our Independence Day here in the USA.  I love to see everyone dressed in their red, white & blue to show their patriotism. My Sister In-law shared this photo of her and her beautiful daughter.  Since my niece is all dolled up like a pageant queen, I wanted my layout to resemble a parade float.   The colors needed to be rich and vibrant, but feminine and soft, so I turned to my stash of Gelatos®. Their creamy texture and rich pigments were just what I needed to make this layout pop!

When I use Gelatos® I'm often asked these two questions:

A Little Fun in the Sun with Terri

DSC_0019

Aaaah!  Summer is here.  In my house that means sunshine, time at the pool, friends, and fun!  I thought I would play with my "stuff"  while watching the kids have some fun in the sun.  I made a fun little card that I can send off to the grandparents.

Quick and easy.  Let me show you how.  I began with a card made from Bazzill smooth white cardstock.  Using the roll of tape on the desk I traced a circle in the center of the front of the card.  Carefully I painted the inside of the circle with Gesso.  Once dry, I sketched a sandcastle in the center.
