Otterly Great Birthday

Welcome back and happy December! I have created a cute birthday card using the color inspiration from the Lawnfawnatics challenge blog. The colors are geared toward the winter holidays so it was fun to use them to create a birthday card instead :)


I was inspired by the teal, red, and green in this color inspiration graphic...


All of the images were stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The images are from the Lawn Fawn "Christmas Like No Otter" set, which was a part of Simon Says Stamp Stamptember release. Unfortunately, this set is no longer available but I have linked to a similar set, Lawn Fawn "Winter Otter". The sentiment is still available and is from Lawn Fawn "Year Five".

Snow White Art Journal

With the stress of work and school and real-life I've noticed that I'm drawn more to my art journal lately. It's a great way to get lost in some paint without having to worry about perfect placement or what others will think about it. I really enjoyed creating this art journal page for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Snow White



At first I was going to do an all white color palette, but as I created the light blues and purples became just as important in my 'snow' making.


I pulled out some old Unity Stamps for the background (I stamped with paint) and The Crafter's Workshop stencils for the stars and branches. First I used modeling paste with the stencil, then once the paste dried I layered the stencil back in place and painted them blue and purple.


I used the Dina Wakley art journal with the burlap panel cut down to be a flap to hide the quote.

The future lies before you
like a field of fallen snow.
Be careful how you tread it
for every step will show.

Disney Traveler's Notebook Flip Through

Welcome back! For my birthday this year we celebrated at the Happiest Place on Earth and I'm even more thrilled to say we are Disneyland Annual Passholders! Woohoo! So to document our trip I decided to create a mini album out of a spare traveler's notebook insert.


There are about 30 pages in this album and it took me 2 weeks to complete. It was a labor of love but completely worth it, plus it's my first Disney mini album! If the video below isn't working you can always watch it directly in youtube right here.




I hope you enjoy the video of all the pages. I've included some photos below of my favorites...
