Scrapbook-N-Memories News http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?rssfeed=1 Tue, 20 Oct 2020 20:15:12 +0100 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Texture Paste: CC3 Challenge 4 #CC3C http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8749 <p>This time the CC3 Challenge is Texture Paste. This is one of my all time favorite techniques, because I like things to be chunky and have multiple layers. I've been playing with the Dreamweaver's Stencil paste looooong before Wendi introduced it. There are so many different fun colors and they come in gloss and matte finishes. We carry the full line of Dreamweaver's Stencil Paste here at Scrapbook-N-Memories.</p> <p>For this challenge I felt that it was time to get my Art Journal out again and play. I used the Seasonal Distress Stains, Distress Ink Pads&nbsp;and Layering Stencils from Tim Hotlz.<br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_2388.jpg" alt="" width="560" height="384" align="" /><br /><br /><span>Here is a close up of all those fun yummy layers. I love that you can't tell which layer came first. Almost like the Chicken vs. The Egg debate, which came first?!</span><br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_2389.jpg" alt="" width="560" height="420" align="" /><br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_2390.jpg" alt="" width="560" height="420" align="" /><br /><br /><span>I want to send a huge&nbsp;Thank You out to Linda&nbsp;again for having these fun challenges.&nbsp;Everyone's projects just keep getting better and better each time.

We went to Michigan and spent the week with my best friend from college, Kim, at her family's cottage on Crystal Lake. It is simply beautiful and inspiring there. The water is so clear and the weather was wonderful. I knew when I got back from vacation that I would have tot many things to catch up on, so I took my traveling Art Box with me to work on the Distress Watercoloring Challenge. It felt wonderful and peaceful to sit in the grass and feel the cool breeze coming off of the water as I stamped and colored.</p> <p>This is one of my favorite tags that I created beach side using the Distress Watercoloring technique. I love this color palete. It is so easy to work with and seams to be my favorite go to colors.</p> <p>&nbsp;<img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_2480.jpg" alt="" width="320" height="427" align="" /><br /><br /><span>I love seeing everyone's take on each challenge. There are truly some very talented crafters out there. Thank you Linda Ledbetter for organizing this challenge bi-weekly and a huge Thank You out to Inspiration Emporium for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate just for playing along in the challenge this time.</span></p> Altered Burlap Panel: CC3 Challenge 6 #CC3C http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8747 <span><span>I've had so much fun each week playing along with the CC3 Challenges. I'm always working on classes and samples and&nbsp;rarely get to work on projects for myself. So, I've committed/forced myself to do&nbsp;each&nbsp;challenge for myself and not skip a one. I have to admit this week was hard to find motivation to complete the task at hand, since I'm still playing catch up from being on vacation. But I feel like it's going to the gym. If you miss one day then it's easier to miss the second day. So I buckled down and decided to play with some Idea-ology products that I had been hoarding for that perfect project. You know what I'm talking about, we all have those stashes<br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_8527.jpg" alt="" width="320" height="416" align="" /><br /><br /></span></span> <p>I loved playing with the "Found Relatives" from Tim Holtz's last release. The vintage pictures are so cute and I don't feel guilty cutting them up and coloring them like I do with my own old family photos. &nbsp;</p> <p>Thank you to The Funkie Junki Boutique for the chance to win a $25 shopping spree. It's always fun to get new goodies to play with and create fun art.</p> Guest Designer: Stephanie Barnard Sizzix Card Class for One Day Only! http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8746 <span><span>Another amazing opportunity that you don't want to miss out on.

I absolutly love this new Sizzix die with the sea horse and the bubbles embossing folder. I created this tag with lots of Ranger&nbsp;products and Sizzix&nbsp;dies.&nbsp;I followed Tim's technique with the crackle paint on the sea horses and the paint for the tag background and then got bored and of course had to make it my own and change things up. I'm not good at following directions, I have to do my own things. ;)</span> 9th Annual: Pink "Crop for a Cure" 3 Day Event http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8744 <span style="font-size: 12pt;">Pink "Crop for a Cure" 3 Day Event</span><br /> <br />September 19th-21st, 2014<br /> <br />Friday: 5-10, Saturday: 10-10 and Sunday: 10-4.<br /> Crop fee is $40, portion of this goes to Susan G.

I have TONS of Halloween themed stamps that have never been used, so for this tag challenge, I thought it was time to get them out and play. I love all of the layers and dimension that&nbsp;</span><a href="http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-august/">Tim&nbsp;Holtz added to his tag this month</a><span>. Here is my interpretation of what he showed on his August tag this month.<br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_8556.jpg" alt="" width="320" height="480" align="" /><br /><br /><span>I love how the Tissue tape resists the Distress Stain and lets the stamped image on top really pop. When you are doing this make sure to stamp your image with Archival Ink, other wise your image will smear. I felt that the skull didn't stand out enough on the tissue tape, so I stamped it again on watercolor paper, colored it in with Distress Markers, cut it out and then popped it on top of the stamped image.</span><br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_8547.jpg" alt="" width="320" height="480" align="" /><br /><br /><span>The properties of the new Ranger Texture Paste are pretty cool too. I applied the paste through one of Tim's new stencils and let it dry. Then applied the Distress Stain over the area. The paste sucked up the Distress stain and took the color very nice and the Tissue Tape under the paste resisted the Distress Stain, so the textures image really pops.</span><br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_8559.jpg" alt="" width="320" height="480" align="" /><br /></span> 12 Tags of 2015-January http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8742 Here is my version for Tim Holtz's January tag for the 12 Tags of 2015 Challenge. I completed this a few days befroe leaving for CHA so I was pressed for time and pretty much followed his instructions step by step. I did do a little of my own twist by ruffing up the edges of the tag and inked everything in Black Soot Distress Ink and I added a few more stars. I like doing things in 3's. My tag turned out alot darker and I got carried away with the white splatter paint. It made me Happy, I just couldn't stop. Ranger Guest Designer: Textured Dragonfly Tag http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8741 I am honored to be a Guest Designer again today on Ranger Ink website. Check out my tag that I created with lots of texture, layers and of course amazing Ranger products. There are even easy step by step instructions that you can follow to create this tag yourself.<br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/texturedbutterflytagrangersite.png" alt="" width="480" height="640" align="" /><br /><br /> 12 Tags of 2015: March http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8740 <p>I got busy and forgot all about February's Tag challenge, in my defense it was a short month. ;) I'm in LOVE with the first two colors released for the Color of The Month program and haven't played with them yet, so I thought today was the day to pull them out and create.</p> <p>Following Tim's lead, I applied varies color of Distress Paint to my craft sheet, spritzed them with water and dragged my tag through the colors. My first attempt was kind of muddy and not very vibrant, so I dried the paint and&nbsp;repeated the same steps over the top of the mud.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/1484676_10152773344443123_9078461014677772605_n.jpg?oh=feac213333dc162a88cef332ba7661d0&amp;oe=55918C84&amp;__gda__=1435829179_3b20176a9625a0b1c9a78422dc6157f6" alt="" width="353" height="301" />&nbsp;</p> <p>Loved applying the embossing powder to the top of the pasted image. Tim recommends waiting for the texture paste to dry completely, I did wait for about 1 minute and got bored. I hate waiting for things to dry, so away with my heat gun I went. The paste bubbled up since it was still wet, but I like it and I'm calling it texture.</p> <p><img src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/10984265_10152773344553123_269610914060885986_n.jpg?oh=705f4e8ef63712f7773fca6f504221c4&amp;oe=5592805A&amp;__gda__=1435840101_1ef309a416841c6442acd87e3d1caf97" alt="" width="355" height="315" /></p> <p>Now time for my own twist. I dug around in my spare metal pieces and found some really cool laser cut wood gears that I had picked up at an event 2 years ago, part of a hinge that the other piece got lost and Tim's new phrase stickers.</p> <p><img src="https://scontent-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/11044989_10152773344368123_821442817895013507_n.jpg?oh=fb48e88e19454c81d5446a24f915049b&amp;oe=558F4555" alt="" /></p> <p>Thank you for stopping my and checking out my creation. Hope this inspires to take the #12tagsof2015 challenge.</p> 12 Tags of 2015: April http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8739 <span>I really liked the simplicity and the techniques in this months tag. I love that Tim Holtz always teaches&nbsp;a new technique or trick that you might not have thought of. I'm a Ranger U graduate and I try to keep up on all the latest and greatest products, education&nbsp;and techniques for my store and customers and he always seams to surprise me.<br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/15918214_26172294_thumbnail_20190910090859.jpg" alt="" width="250" height="375" align="" /><br /><br /><span>This month I loved the effect that you get with misting the water color paper first with water and then giving it puffs of color with the marker spritzer. The colors marbleize very nicely for a muted background base. I also liked using the pumice stone marker around the images to cast a shadow and give it some dimension.</span><br /><br /><img class="img-responsive" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/9698/img_2908_20190910090859.jpg" alt="" width="320" height="427" align="" /><br /><br /><span>I didn't have the Sizzix dies Tim used, so I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the negative "ART" and the strips to slide the water colored paper behind. The word "Create" was also created with the cameo and I welded the letter together.</span><br /></span> 12 Tags of 2015: June http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8738 <p>June's Tag by Tim Holtz was nice and simple this month, but yet was packed with some great techniques! I'm loving the new Blank Ink Pads, that you can custom make using your reinkers. Now your creativity is limitless. I also love applying ink to the stencil, spritzing it with water&nbsp;and then using it to mono print with.</p> <p><img src="https://scontent-ord1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/11402673_10204578784016010_5062394107730230476_n.jpg?oh=322ec93d13299e26661f13a62cd2d8cc&amp;oe=560AA9B9" alt="" width="313" height="522" /></p> <p>Here is my versions of Tim's Tag. I pretty much stuck to his original design. I didn't have a real straw, so I die cut a piece of green paper and added glossy accents to give it that plastic look and add a "K" charm.</p> So excited to be part of the Paper Trail #7! http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8737 <span>I'm so excited to announce that we will be part of the Paper Trail 7!<span class="Apple">&nbsp;</span></span><br /><a id="js_2n" class="profileLink" href="https://www.facebook.com/eileenhulldesigns">Eileen Hull Designs</a><span><span class="Apple">&nbsp;</span>and her vintage trailer, Scotty will be visiting our Fall retreat.

Andy is an accomplished painter and ceramicist but is best known for his &lsquo;industrial gothic&rsquo; altered art, assemblage and mixed media pieces. His unique style is edgy, dark, and enigmatic, pushing the boundaries of the medium with new and innovative techniques. Born and raised in Oxford, England, Andy was interested in art from a young age and the influence of his parents is obvious in his artistic style. His mother, a watercolour artist, encouraged Andy&rsquo;s love of paints, while his father, an engineer with a knack for constructing amazing toys and gadgets from found objects, inspired the quirky and 3D elements of his altered art pieces. Since giving up his successful ceramics business, Andy has immersed himself in the mixed media world he loves. He works as Executive Creative Consultant for DecoArt Inc, using his expertise to develop their innovative Media line of products, and is also a product designer for Stampendous, Tando Creative, Illusionary Artists and Personal Impressions with his own range of rubber stamps, stencils, mdf and Grey board kits.

I gave myself that name 8 years ago when life&rsquo;s circumstances caused me to lose my job and my home and then my only child moved away&hellip;all in the same month. I went from being a full-time single mom, to being a single lady with no direction or idea what to do with myself. I decided to make the best of the situation and push the reset button on my life&hellip;and what a blessing that decision has been! I went back to college at age 40, earned a degree and moved to Washington state where I finally found true love after 20 years of being a hopeful single.</p> <p>Joining the planner community started as a fun hobby on Instagram and inspired my creativity. It also gave me the opportunity to launch a business making planner stickers, crafting kits and fun accessories alongside my husband.</p> <p>In this exciting chapter of my life, I am a passionate planner girl, inspiring thousands of other planner girls on my Instagram and YouTube channels with my photos, tips, encouraging messages and how to videos. I am the creator and hostess of the ListersGottaList challenge on Instagram, a listing and journaling activity that thousands participate in each month.</p> <p>I recently collaborated with scrapbooking manufacturer Simple Stories and introduced a new<span class="Apple">&nbsp;</span><a href="http://theresetgirlshop.com/planners/carpe-diem/new-category/">planner collection</a><span class="Apple">&nbsp;</span>under the Reset Girl brand. I can&rsquo;t even call it a dream come true as it wasn&rsquo;t even something I considered in my wildest dreams! In addition to this beautiful product line, I am also blessed to teach and speak at workshops and events around the world. Encouraging women to use their creative gifts and to become their best selves is my passion.</p> The Faithful Planner Girl Workshop - A workshop for believers Nov 12th http://www.scrapbooknmemories.nethttps://www.scrapbooknmemories.net/modules/news.htm?newsId=8723 <p><span><strong>Saturday, November 12th from 10:00am-2:00pm</strong></span></p> <p><span>$70 class (4 hour class, plus includes a kit with planner inserts and freebies)</span></p> <p><span>Are you ready to take a walk deeper in your Christian faith?
