Linnie Blooms DT Monthly Challenge~August:Quotes

Hi Friends! As a DT member with Linnie Blooms it's my turn to join in on this month's challenge "Create a project using a quote". Technically we're supposed to use our favorite quote but I really don't have a favorite...I have a lot that I really turn to depending on the mood or situation I'm going through. So the one I'm sharing today is more of a positive/gratitude quote. 

I created an art display piece that I already have displayed in my craft room...

I also have a short video that shows you the project up close along with the products I used...



 I altered a wood block using a combination of various craft paints...I wanted to match the green in the fabric I was using for the project...
While I was waiting for the block to dry, I started working on the butterfly canvas die. I am LOVING the new mixed stitch stamps Linda Barutha has designed so I wanted to incorporate them in my project...

 For the rest of the project I just used some sprays and crackle paint on the wood block and fabric to give it that shabby chic feel that I love so much and then I added the other elements...
 This was such a fun and easy project to create using the fabulous canvas pieces and stamps from Linnie Blooms. This would be a great gift for any occasion. 

Be sure to stop by the Linnie Blooms STORE and pick up some of the fun products so you can use them on your crafting projects.

Happy Crafting!!

Thinking Of You

Hi Friends! Today I have a super fun & quick tag to share with you today using a couple of the Linnie Blooms Canvas Die pieces .


I used the butterfly canvas die piece to coordinate with the stamp and the smaller black butterflies. I played with some of my Gelatos and added a flower stamen to mimic the antenna and some black flat back pearls for the center of the butterfly. 

I had a partial piece of the flower canvas die left from another project so I tucked it behind my stamped tag. I really like how it turned out. 

This is a great quick and easy project that you can create to brighten someones day. You could leave it on their desk at work, pop it in the mail or attach it to a small gift or bottle of wine. 

Be sure to stop by the Linnie Blooms store and pick up some of these fun and fabulous canvas dies pieces for your crafting projects.

Smile~Linnie Blooms Style

Hi Friends! Today I have a project to share with you that gives you a peek into a special weekend with my hubby & myself. I created a mixed media layout that uses not one...not two...but three Linnie Bloom products. 


I have a short video that shows you the project up close along with the Linnie Bloom items I used...


My hubby and I just celebrated our 5 year anniversary on July 19th and we went to the beautiful Oregon Coast for a special weekend. I wanted to create a mixed media layout that I could add to my gallery wall in our living room and the Linnie Blooms goodies I used just added that special touch.

I wanted to recreate the gorgeous sun we saw when I took this photo of us so I used the Bloom Stencil along with some Lindy's spray to create the illusion of a sun in the background...
It might be hard to tell since I have scrap paper covering the cardstock but this is in the upper right hand corner of the page...love how this turned out : )

I wanted use the Canvas Picket Fence and I knew right away how I wanted to incorporate this on my layout. Since we were on the beach, I wanted to make this fence look like it had been exposed to the sun and sand a bit so I used a couple of Lindy's sprays and a stencil to make it look weathered a little bit...

I was SO excited to get the chance to use one of the new stamp sets that are coming to Linnie Blooms soon. Linda has designed some stamps that tie in with the Mixed Stitch concept she has and I love how it added that special touch to my project....

Ready for some photos of the completed layout???

This was such a fun layout to create and I love how the Linnie Blooms products I used really added to the look I was going for. 

Be sure to head to the Linnie Blooms SHOP and pick up some of these FAB goodies to use in your crafting projects.

Just Because

Hi Friends! I have another 3GJ DT project to share with you. Today I'll be sharing an altered Muslin Bag that I made for a special friend of mine.


I also have a video that shows you the project up close along with the FAB 3GJ products that I used...
3 Girl JAM products you'll see on this project...

5x7 Muslin Bag

Distressed Lace
Caribbean Splash (Aqua Splash)
Spring Flowers Bundle (Daffodil)
Now for the altered muslin bag....
I wanted to create a unique & pretty bag that I'm using for a RAK for a good friend of mine. The muslin bags are so fun to alter and they "play nice" with sprays and other mediums. I created a flower using the Distress lace and added bits of the crinkle ribbon around my flower cluster. 

I can't wait to send this to my friend and I'm hoping she will love the bag as much as the goodies that are going inside. If you haven't played with the muslin bags from 3GJ, be sure to head to the 3GJ Shop and pick some up. While you're there be sure to grab some crinkle ribbon and Distress Lace as well.
