So I thought I would play with the sketch at Berry71Blue, pretty cool sketch and along with their challenge you have to use some mixed media. I uses some gel modeling paste and a circle stencil to make the circles on the page I then inked them up

Who wood of thought

that working with a wood album wood be so much fun!

I chose the coffee album because I LOVE COFFEE and I thought what better to put in the album but the CREAM and Sugar of my life!

I used a lot of stencils on this album, love how it turned out

This was so much fun to work with the wood, I love it.  Over at Scrap It Girl this month there's a surprise mid month challenge Wood, yes the Back to School challenge is still in full swing until the end of the month, and now you can enter the Wood challenge too! It’s time to use your wood veneer pieces, wood chips, wood scraps, or do a home decor wood project.
I got my album from  Genuinely Jane Studios.   This was the perfect size and the wood is not to thick or heavy,  I would highly recommend giving a wood album a try if you haven't already.
You should head on over to Scrap It Girl and check out what the other team members made, very cool! and then get your wood on and enter!!  If you don't enter you can't win , here is the fabby prize Kimberly is giving away

Got wood prize ~

Now do you have some stash you have forgotten about or maybe a technique you haven't used in awhile if so check out Our Creative Corner .  (I had forgotten I had the silver stick on words)

Now if you have some Texture with a twist (choose your style) head on over to Crafts-Too, I think the wood album gives this project lots of texture, I also added some gel modeling paste to a page and used a stencil, it's a little hard to see in photo (it's on the first page) and as for my style, I honestly don't know what you call this?? modern? shabby? eclectic? girly? whimsical? I think I'm all over the board, that"s how I would define my style.

If you head over to Simon Says and stamp on anything besides plain paper , like I did with the wood album you can enter the challenge there.

In this album I chose to use some old flowers from my stash (at least old to me) the blue and white printed ones I have had for quite some time and I finally had the perfect project to use them on, go over to Shopping Our Stash and check out some more floral projects.

  I also made my own zipper flowers I love that purple color, something new I hadn't done.  If you make your own flowers go over to  Try it on Tuesday and enter there.

and.....last but not least , are you ready to get Unruly, at Unruly Paper Arts, they got their wood on! Who new what you could do with wood, the RAQ1 is a 3d wooden project.

Ok, so that's all for now folks, until next time happy crafting and thanks for looking.

Back to school

September already, wow how this year has flown by.

 in the photo the binder looks kinda red, it is actually pink

Here I have stamped a binder, a pencil case and a composition book for the back to schooler.  What a neat way to personalize those items they use each day.  This month over at Scrap It Girl the challenge is to use school supplies.  You have all month long to enter and you could win this prize, swing by and see what the other designers have made.
