Springtime in Creston

Hello all.

Well, winter, what can I say. It rushed upon us with a bang.

When I looked through my photos I just had to scrap something green with great memories and warmer promises to come.

Creston is a small town in British Columbia Canada. By  far my most favorite place I discovered in my new home country. We visit there often and made a bunch of great friends. I am a country girl at heart you see, and I can only describe it as my “happy town”.SPRING-1I used paper from Kaisercraft, from the “Pickled Pear” collection. The paper and the collectables were a perfect mach  for my photo. This layout came together with a lot of layering…..so much fun.SPRING-2A little more interest on the background paper were achieved with splatter and spray with ink and a dot stamp lightly stamped on the white area.SPRING-3Inking is always advised when there is torn paper and a little ink rubbed lightly on some elements give it that vintage look we all love so much.SPRING-4 The roses and framed definition is from Prima, and I used some chipboard swirl to complete the corner. Nature is so inspiring and the definition was just right for my message on this page.SPRING-5Again my title is made up of  stickers from Basic Grey. The color relates  nicely with everything.SPRING-6This photo was taken on Webbers Mountainside Cherry Farm in Wynndel just outside Creston. (It is a pear tree in bloom)  Take a look at their site http://www.webbersmountaincherries.ca/ . Michele and Wade Webber own the farm and they are some of my favorite people.

To every one in the cold winter regions, bundle up and stay safe.

Happy crafting everyone.

Boots

Hello dear friends!

After a long absence (I won’t bore you with details) I am back in the saddle making some art and of course scrapping, scrapping, scrapping.

Winter arrived this week and boy is it cold here in Calgary. Snowing and sub zero temperatures keep us bundled up, but the dog must get her walk regularly. So, what to do? Get her some boots of course!

Zoe has a love-hate relationship with her gorgeous red boots. She loves to walk and hate the boots with a passion.Boots-1We had a great laugh at her expense when we first put them on, she walked as if her GPS was malfunctioning. We must have offended her way to much, because when the boots come out she hides in her kennel. Poor baby still gets her walk, but a short one as to not freeze those pretty doggy feet.Boots-2This layout was done on some nice snowflake winter paper and I added some red splashes for repetitive color. The dots are really pretty they’re made by Prima and called “sugerdot stickers”Boots-3Of course a lot of stamping and splashes of red ink give some interest. Something to try: put down an interesting stencil ( I used circles)  and then stamp on top of it. The stamp will show only where the open patches are.Boots-4Add some texture with cotton thread bundles peeking out from underneath objects, and add a little pizazz with flowers and gemstone swirlies. Remember to stick down some washi tape.Boots-5Just look at how these snowflakes make the page come together. Remember to try and always work in odd numbers.

I just love Basic Grey alphabet stickers. They make adding a title so easy.Boots-6Hope this inspires you some.

Those having summer, enjoy the heat, and for all my winter friends stay warm and enjoy the beautiful winter wonderland.

Till next time

Happy Crafting.
