Today I am super happy to share this very personal tag I made for my Erin Condren planner with my beautiful niece, her birthday is coming and I wanted to make a tag to mark the month and day of this special day¬†!
To make this tag, I stamped this gorgeous Rose stamp called Splendid Roses from Kennedy Grace Creation on watercolor paper and embossed it with gold embossing powder from the Paper Source (you know¬†I have a thing for gold :D), then colored my image with zig kuretake clean color, next I wrote on calligraphy her name and birthdate.
Then I die cut my little frame and masked some stripes with washi tape and applied distress inks with my blending tool, because I love texture I added nuvo drops matching the colors of my roses and a sticker from my planner, this tag was attached to my planner with the CoilClip connectors which I find really useful, since I can attach any card or extra tag to my planner with them. To finish it up I added¬†¬†¬†the picture of my beautiful niece, I will place this tag on the month of October to remind me this special day, she is a very sweet girl, we are all¬†so proud of her!

Today sharing a bookmark I made with the October stamp of the So Suzy, is funny how the sentiment reflects exactly how I feel about a little curve ball I received last week!
Below are the materials I used for this quick and easy bookmark!
I started stamping my two images from So Suzy on my bookmark that I die cut from Bristol paper (this paper is a delight to work for blending) with versafine and dry it with my heat gun
After my images were stamped I masked some stripes and colored them with distress inks and my blending tool, super simple to make and with great results, I was careful of not covering my coastal image,¬†then I colored¬†¬†the image¬†of¬†the moonlight sailing¬†with Stabilo Carbotello pens, my latest love, these chalk pens are amazinggggg, love them so much, I can achieve a completely different effect than my other mediums and they blend beautiful, I think you will see them quite often on my future projects, just be sure to use a fixative after you are done ūüôā
To finish my project I added a string and anchor charm, it goes perfectly with this design!
You have different options to enroll for the So Suzy Stamp of the Month Club, you can sign up for three months to try it out or sign up for the whole year – regardless of where you are in the world! The theme for 2016 is Coastal so you will get a stamp in the mail that is “coastal themed” (beach, nautical). The program includes a great mixture of sentiments and images therefore at the end of the year, you will have a great collection of coordinating stamps.
If you have missed out on previous month’s stamps, don’t worry! By signing up for the Yearly Membership, you will receive all back dated stamps and will be all caught up with the rest of your friends.
Happy Sunday! Today I am super excited to share my first post as a designer for Kennedy Grace, I feel so honored to have the opportunity to share my designs with you and to join such an amazing team!
This month we decided to use the color pink in our projects, to help raising awareness about Breast Cancer, unfortunately my family has been way to close to it since my aunt ( my mom’s twin) passed earlier this year from Breast Cancer and I know as a fact she was not the kind of person that would do the auto exam or go to the doctor, no day have passed that I haven’t missed her, so please, please I beg you to check your breasts regularly, I will leave you the link here where you can find more information on how to do it, I know it may be scary, but finding it on time can make a huge difference!
For this project, I decided to do something different, I decided to decorate the cover of my calligraphy Moleskine book, to start I wrote my name with my calligraphy nib and white ink, using as a model my calligraphy teacher handwriting, then I stamped on versamark the beautiful bouquet from the Grace’s Little Note stamp set on vellum and emboss it with Hero Arts white embossing powder, colored it with tombow markers on the back and fussy cut my images.
Here is a closer look of my project
