Right, it's Spring? I hope we can be sure now. I'm ready for warm weather, flowers, and sunshine! That gets me to the project I have to share with all of you today.
This is me and my little man. Isn't he a cutie? We are enjoying the glimpses of Spring and there's no better way to scrap these memories than with Moxxie's Springtime line. It's just beyond gorgeous!
I paired the collection with a puzzle board that I picked up at my local craft store. After spray painting the base and pieces gold, I covered a few of the pieces with the b-side of Moxxie's Songbirds (actually, I used the remainder of what I had left from under the a-side), and the b-side of Moxxie's Take Flight. Once I attached the paper to the puzzle pieces, I sanded the edges and inked them with Peeled Paint Distress Ink from Ranger for a more polished look.
For the base of the layout, I used that a-side of the Songbirds (top half) and the a-side of the In Bloom (bottom half). For a bit of dimension, I distressed the edge of the In Bloom and inked it with the Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
All the stickers and cut outs used in the layout are also from the Moxxie Springtime collection. To add some shine, I applied Glossy Accents to the butterflies and the song bird. It's a small touch, but when it hits the light, it makes a huge difference.
I hope you like this project! It was a lot of fun to put together and (I think) well worth the effort. Now, I just need to find a place on my wall to hang it!

Today I'm showing a mixed media layout I made using the new "Winery" line.
I used 3 Moxxie papers and the cardstock stickers. Both sides of "Aged To Perfection" were used. The barrel print is the background and the opposite side had the pretty scrolls I cut out and added to the top right. I got the purple banner from the "Winery Cutouts" paper. And the cork scrolls came from the "Winery Stickers".
Here is a close up of the top. You can see I used gesso, modeling paste, stencils. inks and paints. I also added tissue tape, ephemera and resin frames.
On the bottom left I added the same mediums, paints, stencils and inks I also added a resin button and some green string to balance out the green scroll from the top.
Thanks for visiting! Please check out all the Moxxie has to offer!!
**I followed the directions on where to score and cut to create the box but did NOT begin to actually glue it all together until I had finished decorating it first!
I cut a strip of designer paper about 1/8" to a 1/4" smaller than back of the box and used my corner round edge punch and did a bit of distressing on it before I adhered it down to my box. Then I cut out a strip to wrap around the middle of the box part and distressed it a bit too. I tied together two small pieces of pink & brown bakers twine and stapled them down to the box. I punched out a cute little heart of Moxxie's Tiny Dancer line and layered on a Mambi sticker- love, using 3d-dots for dimension.
On the test tube measured around the test tube cut a strip of designer paper the length and width I needed. Leaving about 1/2" extra on the length to overlap. Before wrapping it around I found the middle of my strip punched a heart out and taped a small piece pink paper behind so the pink would peek through the punched out heart. Then I traced around it with a bronze Sharpie. Once I adhered the strip around the test tube I used some more pink & brown bakers twine to tie around.
Hi all, i am stopping by to share some fun handmade ornaments i made using a large diecut (adorable snowman) and fussy cutting out images (sled and ice skates) from the winterland paper.
I first, punched and cut them out of the paper and punched holes near the tops where i want my ribbon to tie onto. Next, i placed the images on wax paper to keep from sticking while drying cause here is the fun part. Squeeze an even thick layer of dimensional glue over the entire image. (Tip-do not shake the dimensional glue as not to get bubbles and keep tip down in glue while covering images to keep a smooth cover).

Then, i sprinkled iridescent fine glitter to the wet glue. I then repeated on the other images and let dry overnight then covered the other side with just the glue to make for a nice thick dimensional ornament.
Lastly, i added a pretty ribbon to each and hung on my tree. I just love the vintagey look they have to them!
These would make great gifts too! Make sure to get your hands on some winterlandso you can give this a try. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
