Spring Layout Using Alcohol Pearl Inks and Chipboard!

Hello! I sure hope all my Canadian friends have enjoyed a lovely long Victoria Day Weekend, and that all my other crafty friends had lots of fun this weekend too! The weather hasn't been fantastic here in Calgary, Alberta, but we definitely still enjoyed the long weekend. Today, I'm over at the Southern Ridge Trading Company Blog with a pretty spring layout using some lovely chipboard pieces from the SRTC Shop and customizing them with Alcohol Pearl Inks. I'm telling you, the more I use these inks the more I love them! I'm also using a pretty stencil from the shop to add some soft detail with Distress Oxide Inks.

Here's a look at the Process Video where you can see how I put it all together-

Supplies Used:
SRTC Chipboard - Foliage Pieces and Wild Flower Bouquet
SRTC Loop Stencil
Ranger Alcohol Pearl Ink by Tim Holtz
Ranger Distress Oxide Inks by Tim Holtz
My Mind’s Eye Happy Days Paper
Pinkfresh Studio Sticky Notes

When You're Eating A Cookie Layout!

Hi friends! Well, it's the start of a long weekend here in Canada with Victoria Day on Monday. It is traditionally a weekend when people head out camping, however I don't think I ever remember it being sunny, so we usually don't make too many plans. It is actually raining, so I'm totally fine with staying home- warm, cozy and dry and doing a little crafting 😃 I'm over on the Wild Whisper Designs Blog today sharing a cute cookie layout using photos from one Christmas. I decided not to focus on traditional Christmas colours, but instead use the fun papers, ephemera, cards and sequins in the Wild Whisper Designs new Talk Foodie To Me collection along with some of the pretty Wild Whisper Embossing Powders.

I'm using one of the sketches in the May 365 SCT Layout Class, which is a year of double page sketches and inspiration along with a few added crafty goodies from the SCT Sampler PacksThanks so much for stopping by today!
