Hi, Joan here, sharing a page featuring my great-niece Aria. She is wearing bunny ears and I think she looks adorable!
For this page, I used Moxxie's Springtime line. I also used the new Turquoise alphabet to add Aria's name to the bottom of the photo. I punched flowers, inked the edges and then added gems to the centers. The flowers were pop dotted to add dimension. I also pop dotted banner stickers to the upper corner of the page to make a small banner. Lastly, I sprinkled sequins on the page.
The Springtime line has such lovely colors and designs - perfect for Easter photos! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
This could be a very long post but I will try to speed things up.
I will begin with my inspiration for my project.
Sometimes we get these wonderful papers and know exactly what to use them for, and others we get just because we like. So, as I was thinking about using Moxxie Fun Run paper I just couldn't find inspiration. I was having an artistic block.
So when I can't control my thought process (the block) I clean something up...in order to gain control again. And I decided to clean my kids art supplies.
My kids are 19 and 11, so in almost 20 years....they have accumulated roughly 5120 crayons, 2560 markers, 1920 colored pencils, and 80 pair of scissors.
This was the stuff they did not use!
So as I was putting the last donated crayon in the box...I had a vision.
And so my "bloom" girl was born. She was beautiful and she had crayons in her hair and crayon on her face.
I melted the crayons and used it to "paint" my girl. I thought she looked like she has lived motherhood...through "the dirt, the mud, the grime and the glory"
I guess to make my story short, I used Moxxie Fun Run line to create what it feels for me to come to this new chapter of motherhood.
I met Sarah in the 7th grade when I felt like a nerdy outcast and she was the popular flirt. Despite distance (we both moved in high school), we kept in touch. I was her Maid of Honor and she was mine. This picture is when she came to visit me when my youngest was born. It is so nice to have a friend who knows where you came from and sees the evolution of who you are.
To showcase this photo, I used MOXXIE's Springtime line filled with juicy, happy colors. The vibrancy of the line sings to me of friendship and youth.
I smeared paint on the background, then stamped over with more paint. Layered on the pretty Springtime papers and used MOXXIE letters that coordinate so well. A few embellishments here and there and the page was a breeze.
Hi All! Renee from Scrap Owl back with some more Moxxie fun! This time I'm sharing some springtime and Easter cards that I made with Moxxie's Homespun Easter collection.
Now I know I just told you that I used the Homespun Easter collection for all of these cards, but I have to admit that wasn't completely true. For the sentiment on this card I used one of the awesome rub-on's from Moxxie's Easter collection. However, the rest of the card is made completely from Moxxie's Homespun Easter. I had so much fun dressing up my little bunny friend and adding just a few special touches to make this card shine.
One of the things that I love about the Homespun collection is you don't really have to do too much to make it look amazing. The fact is, the design itself really does all the work. The cross-stitch patterns make the designs really stand out. Therefore, it so easy to create some fun, interesting, and clever greetings.
For my last card, I have once again paired a rub-on from the Easter collection with Moxxie's Homespun line. The pink swirled bunny and Happy Easter sentiment really pop when coupled with some white cardstock and foam tape!
I hope you are enjoying Spring and have some time to get crafty!
Hello Sunshine! Are you ready for Spring?? I seriously can not wait. The snow piles outside are too tall and are all dirty now. The temperatures are so cold and the winds never seem to stop. And for some reason, there hasn't been any sun in months. I've never seen that happen. It is grey skies all the time. So yes, I am ready for Spring!!
It's crazy to think that Spring is on it's way and creeping up on us so quickly. I decided to grab the Springtime collection and scrap an older Easter photo of our family (photo of when we were just a family of four).
Usually I totally distress up my pages, but with the bright colors and soft feel, I decided to go with a "clean" look to the page and papers.
I punched out a few butterflies to use as accent embellies along with just two word sticker strips:
and added some stitching around the border of the page:
Thanks sooo much for stopping by and I'm super excited for those spring colors to start popping up.
Hi, Joan here to share a layout featuring my three great-nephews and great-niece. I enjoy these little ones so much and I feel very lucky to be part of their lives.
I used paper from the Springtime line to cut out the following: the large shamrock, the light green circles to back the letters and also the blue paper. The dark green paper (bottom layer) is from the Winery line. I used the brown alphabet letters for the title (photo below).
Moxxie's new Springtime and Winery lines are both fantastic! I love how this page turned out!
