The Memory of Time

The Memory of Time published on No Comments on The Memory of Time

Jen Timko - Day to remember

Happy Monday to you!  I told you that I was working on some extra stuff finally and I really wanted to share this one with you.  With the anniversary of 9-11 a few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to get some pictures of my trip to the 911 Memorial into my Project Life book.  These are hard pictures to “scrap” because I feel like the pages really have to reflect the tone of the memorial.  I started with this one….this amazing wall.  It is called “Trying To Remember the Color of the Sky on That September Morning” and was created by Spencer Fitch.  What you cannot capture in a picture is the overwhelming nature of this piece.  It is large and encompasses a whole wall.  Each panel is handprinted a different shade of blue and there is such thought and significance to every bit of this piece (you can read a little more here).  But for me, it hit home because when people ask me about that day and flying, one of the things I remember most IS the color of the sky.  A crystal clear, perfect fall blue sky.  I found that standing in front of this was an incredibly moving experience.  And then when I examined the panels closer and realized they were hand painted….wow!

So how to keep this picture in a meaningful way?  Project Life.  I very much wanted the focus to be on the picture itself with simple accents.  I kept to the gold and wooden/natural palette and I’m very happy with the result.  This is a true conglomeration of products and it makes me happy how they work together.  I thought that hearts wold be a good place to start so I pulled this Fancy Foil Gold Vellum with the hearts and cut it out using the Scor-Dies Pocket Pen Pals Dies (Basics A).  I created this envelope that I could fill with things.  After some experimenting, I chose heart sequins from the Metallics Sequins and a heart wooden element.  I used the new Fine Tip Glue Pen to seal it and added some Gold Sequin Trim and Gold Baker’s Twine.  For the next pocket, I cut a card using my PL Cards & Labels Framelits out of the striped pattern of the gold vellum.  Then using a PL card from the Becky Higgins DIY Shop Edition, I cut it further using another of the Scor-Dies (to create that scalloped top).  The sentiment is from PL Remember This (SU) and is gold embossed onto Naturals Ivory card stock.  Finally, for the picture I used an overlay from the PL Desktop Edition by Becky Higgins.

I’m please with the result and I think this picture does actually speak for itself.  I’m sure I’ll journal on some of the other pages when I create them using more pictures from that day but this one seems perfect just as it is.  I hope you enjoy this page and will be inspired to try a combination of products to create just the right Project Life project!  Thanks for stopping in today.  See you soon!

I am so excited to be a part of this amazing group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators!  If you haven’t heard of “The Crew” yet, you are going to be so thrilled with this.  We are here to show you the versatility of one stamp set every time we hop (the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month).  We have a whole team of people and different stampers participate each time.  Like you, we look to find ways to maximize our investments and the single focus on one set allows you to see all the possibilities!  This week, our featured stamp is Project Life: Point & Click.  While it is certainly great for creating Project Life memory keeping, it is also fabulous for cards!

If you just came over from the lovely Yapha Mason, I’m so glad you are here!  If you want to see everyone who is hopping or if you get lost along the way, just click over to The Stamp Review Crew blog.

SRC - Point & Click

I just love the little designs in this stamp set.  So many fun arrows, stars and elements!  I thought I’d just use one and repeat it to create this sweet little card.  I stamped the arrows using Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Real Red.  Then I added the sentiments from So You, a stamp set from the Occasions Catalog that goes along with the So You Project Kit (an adorable scrapbook kit).  LOVE this sentiment (and all the others in the set)!    I put a narrow background frame around the stamped panel with Real Red card stock and then attached this striped pattern from the Stacked with Love DSP Pack to a white card base.  While some of the patterns have a subtle heart theme this stack is really great for so many projects!  It seemed to be missing something so I finished with a tiny Cherry Cobbler Button (Regals) tied up with Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine.  The stamped panel is up on Dimensionals for a little extra wow!

I hope you like today’s card.  Like you, I can’t wait to see all that the others have for inspiration!  Hop on over to Holly Krautkremer to continue on your way around.  So glad you dropped in today.  See you again soon!

Snow Day Stampin’ Fun!

Snow Day Stampin’ Fun! published on 1 Comment on Snow Day Stampin’ Fun!

So apparently my children will be going to school through June.  Or maybe not but wow, they have been home a lot for snow days!!  A LOT!  After the hours and hours of Minecraft, I finally decided it was time for something else.  Fortunately I had not one but two things at the ready for them.  And you know what?!  These guys are seriously great (ok, the products are seriously great and they are perfect for any level of crafter…but I’m a mom so I have to give credit to the kids!)!!!  Wanna see??  Of course you do!!

First of all, I decided that we were going to start a Project Life by Stampin’ Up album created by the boys with some of their favorite events.  Sometimes weekly, sometimes more, depending on what we are up to.  I pulled out the kits I have and they got to work.  Because they aren’t me, they have the courage to mix and match and just create what makes sense to them.  I have a lot to learn from them!!  Using the Everyday Adventure, Playground and Sale-a-bration This Day kits and accessories here are their first pages.  I can’t even wait until they create more!  Ok…truthfully they will be creating more pretty much the second I finish typing this post.  *smile*

PL by Jacob - Stampin' on the Fly

First, my oldest created these fun pages.  I love the one he made using a funny picture of him and his older cousin taken while we visited Orlando a couple of weeks ago.  The other picture he chose is “The Supervisor” doing what she does best.  He chose to put in the ikat style DSP (Sweet Dreams) pattern to match!  He used the PL Cards and Labels Framelits to make it match perfectly.

PL by Nathan - Stampin' on the Fly

Not to be outdone, my youngest chose a picture of himself from when he was the Star Student (a way to let the other kids know more about each child).  He took some of the things he had written about himself on the poster and put them on the card.  Isn’t this PL card perfect?!

Feb PP - Thanks

So we finished the Project Life work for the day and they still felt like crafting (insert mom cheer here!).  I went right to the Paper Pumpkin kit for February!!  They made this card above (and others like it) which is pretty much the design straight from the kit.  But then I showed them a fun post from Concept Artist Melody Hyde (go leave her some love because she is brilliant) and they just had to create their versions of the star card.  I cut apart an accordion for them and they got to work.

Feb PP - Cards

I helped show them how to wrap the twine like Melody did and they chose different colors from my stash.  I may go and create another group just like them and put them in one of the cute envelopes from the kit to have ready as a little treat for someone.  You know….I might be doing that while the boys are working on PL!!

Ok.  Enough typing.  I have crafting (YAY!) and snow shoveling (BOO!!) to do today.  I hope you have a fabulous and crafty day!  See you soon!

Freshly Made Sketches #173

Freshly Made Sketches #173 published on 8 Comments on Freshly Made Sketches #173

 

So a funny thing happened on the way to this week’s sketch.  Like many design teams, our Freshly Made Sketches team has a separate blog where we can upload sketches and challenges cards early in order to make the weekly challenge happen.  Kind of the magic behind of the scenes.  The team loads in their latest sketches and I convert them to final form in My Digital Studio.  Well, when Kim Singdahlsen uploaded her sketch, I got to work on getting it drawn.  After I got everything done and loaded on the DT page, I looked at the sketch and it was crooked.  Surely, I thought, I hadn’t mistakenly hit rotate??  Seriously??  So I went back to the sketch and no, I hadn’t.  I pulled out a real straight edge and held it to my screen and yep, it is straight.  So apparently Kim is so creative that she can not only concoct great sketches, she can invent optical illusions!!!  We all know she is a card making genius and now we just know that she is a multi-faceted genius!

FMS173 - Thank You

 

I started my card with the awesome new Painted Blooms DSP.  Both the stripe print and the Daffodil Delight background paper are from that pack.  Aren’t they pretty?!  I love the ombre variation in the stripes!  I decided to pair it up with a card out of the Project Life Everyday Adventure Kit.  That awesome little notebook paper print goes perfectly with the DSP and I didn’t have to cut a thing.  I stamped on the Watercolor Thank You stamp (a single) in Blackberry Bliss.  Then I added an arrow punched with the What’s Up Punch out of a flower print from the Painted Blooms DSP.  A Razzleberry button tied with Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine to finish.  I just love the look of this card….clean but with a sense of fun.

FMS Final 173-001

And here is our funny optical illusion sketch for the week.  I was relieved that the card itself didn’t take on the illusion of the sketch illustration!!  Ok, you KNOW you want to check it yourself.  Go ahead.  The outside rectangle is straight, I promise!!

The team has some fun inspiration for you and I think you are going to have a ball with this one….again.  I have to say (with only a little too much of a bragging voice) that the team has been on fire with the sketches lately!  And the gallery has been incredible as a result.  I am grateful for all the cool stuff I get to see every week as I see what you share.

Ok….so I have my make and take AND some cool samples from the Northern Virginia Regional Event I went to last week.  I finally got some pictures and have them edited so I really will have them up tomorrow.  Life just got away from me over the last couple of days and I could not seem to get the posts up.  But I did teach some awesome kids in 6th grade about the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots and did some other stuff for my boys.  Like working on Valentine’s!  I hope your week is going well and I look forward to having you stop in again tomorrow.  Until then, have a great day!

FMS Final 168-001

Welcome to 2015!!  Ok….I am a little late to tell you Happy New Year but I hope that your year has started off well.  I am returning from my hiatus to bring you this fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  It is no surprise that it is awesome since it is from the creative mind of the oh-so-talented Amy O’Neill.  The color queen has come up with this fun and cool sketch….perfect for your new year inspiration!

FMS168 - Love

I thought this sketch would be super fun with the cards from Project Life.  I know these are meant for memory keeping but they are also so great as elements on cards.  I thumbed through my Playground set and found three that I thought worked really well together.  I really loved the heart page and chose it to be the focal panel.  I pulled out a mini clothespin that I had from a tag kit and added a little bit of Epic Day Washi Tape to the top to make it coordinate with the cards.  I thought the background needed a little something too so I embosses the Whisper White panel with the Large Polka Dots embossing folder.  Finally, I cut out the sentiment with my retired Expressions Thinlits.

139325G

While this word thinlit isn’t available anymore, there is a new set that would be tons of fun for a card like this.  The thinlits are called Hello You and they have a coordinating stamp set called Crazy About You.  Think of all the quick and fun little cards you can make just like this one for various occasions.  Just change up the PL cards and sentiments.  And just in case you missed the sounds of happiness all over, the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog is now live.  My order is going in today and you can be it will be expedited.

During the holidays I made exactly one card.  This one.  I was gone for much of my boys’ break and spent some serious time on the road with United.  The highlight of all my travels was a visit with my Freshly Made Sketches friend Linda Callahan!  She is such everything you expect from her blog and cards!  Funny, sweet and such a joy to spend time with!  I have a few more days of busy stuff with United and then some serious crafting time!  Every nine months, pilots have a check ride and mine is next Monday and Tuesday.  Lots of studying to do and then time at our training center.  Hoping my Occasions order will be waiting when I get home from that!!!

I know you are going to have fun with our sketch this week.  The design team certainly did and their work is what you have come to expect….awesome!  Thanks so much for stopping in today. I’ll see you again soon!

As promised, another post about my Convention Display Board projects!  (Remember to click on the button above to link to all the other display stampers on our Pinterest board)

What am I up to today?  Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  While some of our focus was on three specific stamp sets, we also had the option to include some projects made with Project Life.  What is this?  It is a memory keeping system that is super simple and fun.  No stressing about layouts and lots of design elements and hard stuff and…..  Nope.  No stressing.  The key is keeping it simple.  Pictures and some fun printed cards and journaling the story with the pictures.  But me being me, I had to make some cards with it too.  Because this system is versatile.  So you will actually use it! (Click any pictures to see them larger)

Project Life - Every day note cards

So it started by accident.  I thought the biggest of the cards (4″ x 6″)  from the Everyday Adventures PL x SU set would be super cute folded in half to make 4″ x 3″ note cards.  So I started looking through the stack to figure out which ones worked best with the folding.  Many of them it seems.  So I chose a color variety.  And then I started adding on things from the Everyday Adventures Accessory Pack.  And buttons, staples, a little ribbon, Baker’s Twine….whatever worked.  Then I pulled out the Project Life Corner Punch and went wild with it too.  It was fun, it was quick and I LOVE how they turned out.  It was hard to send them in.  Of course they needed little envelopes so I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board to make them out of coordinating card stock in just the right size.

Project Life - Note card box

And then I made them a special box.  A little tin I had (from the Container Store, I think).  Another card and some more fun doodads (that is the official term I will now use for the accessories) and a little bit of card stock behind the see-through top and some more ribbon.  Fun, huh?  Conveniently the right size.  I’d like to say I planned it but I wasn’t that smart.  I was lucky!  And you could always build them a box out of the new box punchboard (you KNOW that will be awesome – it is in the new Holiday Catalog and you will get to see it soon!).

Project Life - Love u

And because all the PL x SU stuff was all over my desk by this time, I started on a more traditional card.  Again just playing and layering with cards big and small and all the cool doodads.  Because Project Life is all about fun and did I mention no stress?  Yes, no stress.  Layouts are simple because the cards fit the special Project Lifepages.  Just add pictures.  Want to see all of the products available so far?  Click here:

I’ll be back soon with more projects.  Maybe even tomorrow if I have time to edit some more pictures.  Out flying around this weekend so keep an eye out for me!  Until then…happy stamping!

It is my turn!!!  Yay!!!!  Yes, yes, I am the sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I always feel a little nervous when I create a sketch but after the team creates their magic, I feel better.  This week is just that.  You have to see what they have made!  WOW!

FMS138 - Graduation adventureAs for me, I have yet another card made with Project Life Everyday Adventure.  I just can’t stop making cards with it.  I know, I’m supposed to be scrapbooking but just look at how fun this is.  How can I resist?!  This little panel practically made the card for me.  First I snipped off the corners with the new PLxSU Corner Punch.  Then I put a small Bermuda Bay panel behind the top words.  The whole card is popped up on a Basic Black panel with Dimensionals.  The ribbons is the new Hello Honey In Color Ribbon (it is SOOOOOOO pretty….in all the colors!).  The button and some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine (new to the catty too) to finish.  This card is for my nephew who has just graduated from high school.  I think it is the perfect sentiment, don’t you?

So glad you could stop in today.  If you missed it, I have a great card using the new Blendabilities in last night’s Artisan post.  I am getting so excited for the new catty launch (June 2nd!)!!  I hope you will be able to join us this week in the gallery.  I am always so inspired by what everyone makes.

Until tomorrow, I hope your day is great!!

I know you are as happy to see this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches as I was!  Because it is awesome….just like Jen Mitchell who designed it!  It lends itself to so many interpretations either super clean or with a bit of embellishment.

FMS137 - HiI opted for super clean and pulled out some brand new stuff from the upcoming Stampin’ Up catalog (launching Jun 2nd).  First of all I used the cool dots from the stamp set called Dotty Angles.  Yep….you will want this one right away!!  I combined it with one of the cards from the Project Life by Stampin’ Up (PLxSU) set Everyday Adventure.  These are just as cute on cards as they are on scrapbook pages.  I tied on the new Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine with a Crushed Curry button to finish.  Super fast, super fun and really cute (at least I hope you think so).

I was off on this wonderful field trip yesterday with my oldest son’s class.  We went to downtown DC and visited both the National Gallery of Art and the Vietnam Memorial.  I’m back to the stamp room today but it sure was great getting to see the kids’ impressions of those amazing places.  The docent at the gallery really showed the children how to find a story in pieces of art.  I could not believe how insightful they proved to be.  And “the Wall” is such a powerful memorial.  The magnitude of sacrifice was not lost on the kids.  I teared up when my son spontaneously went up to some veterans there to thank them for their service.  The gentlemen shook his hand and even took pictures with him.  The group we saw had traveled from Wisconsin and I hope my son’s voice helped to provide closure for the times when they were not given due respect.  It was a proud mom moment, I must say.

Ok…back to stamping!  I hope to be able to see YOUR story in the art you create with stamping this week.  I know the DT has lots to show you!  Thanks so much for dropping in today.  I’ll see you again soon!

Welcome to the first edition of the May Artisan Wednesday Wow hop.  Boy do we have some fun for you this month!!  Did you hear the big news at Stampin’ Up?  Ok….there is lots of big news.  So did you hear the news about Project Life® by Stampin’ Up®??  Well the Artisan Design Team has all the available products and we are showing them off this week!  If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop.

True confession time.  I am not much of a scrapbooker.  Yes, I make scrapbook pages but that is not the same thing.  Creating a whole book somehow seems overwhelming to me.  When I heard about Project Life® by Stampin’ Up®, I wasn’t sure what to think.  So let me tell you how my process for this page went.  Came home from dropping off kids from school.  Turned on computer and scanned for pictures.  Pondered pictures, almost panicked, chose pictures.  Edited pictures and threw them into MDS for easy printing.  Added little banner onto one picture in MDS.  Went to printer, fought with printer, printed out pictures.  Took pictures to “Mom Cave” (my stamp room).  Breathed sigh of relief when I realized the new Project Life® Cards & Labels Framelits would cut pictures to perfect size.  Cut them out with Big Shot.  Laid pictures on Photo Pocket Page, figured out which sections still needed to be filled.  Went through Project Life® Everyday Adventure Card Collection and Accessory Pack and picked cards and doodads that match pictures.  Yes…there are official names I’m sure but the doodads are more fun to say.  Rounded corners of cards with new Project Life® Corner Punch.  Pulled out new Day to Day stamp and stamped date onto card.  Figured out that Starburst Sayings stamp would be good in circle.  Stamped and cut with Starburst Framelits.  Grabbed Basic Metal Buttons, added where needed.  Panicked slightly over terrible handwriting.  Wrote accurate assessment of taking pictures with children (not the Facebook version where everything is perfect, lol).  DONE!!!!  Total time fussing with pictures:  1 hour.  Total time to make scrapbook page: 45 minutes.  Hmmm….might need to get some pictures organized and printed!!!

More truth (if you can stand it).  I thought that maybe this wasn’t Artisan-y enough.  After all, you have all come to expect great things from the hops.  But while I was tempted to pull out the sewing machine and all kinds of extras, that isn’t really the point of this way of scrapping.  This is supposed to document real life in a really manageable way.  Which means actually makable by busy people in spare minutes.  So here it is.  My first step in becoming a real live scrapbooker.

I know the team has all kinds of cool stuff planned for you today!  I hope you enjoy our introduction of this fabulous new collaboration!

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
