Place the shamrock in the Xyron Sticker maker then place on both sides of Rinea Foil.

Tie a bow with the Green ribbon and place on the corner of Shamrock.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

WOW Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun! I had the best time at Creativation and then an extended vacation after the show.  There was so much to see and do during the event!

It was a blessing to be able to attend the show thanks to Canvas Corp Brands. Mind you I did work, I worked hart. The Canvas Corp Brands booth is an elaborate booth. Filled with so much inspiration that it can take more than three days just to see everything.

One of my art works was on display in the booth!  It was such an honor to see it on display where it could be seen by everyone.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

The Window in the lower right corner is mine.

Being a part of the crew to put the booth together was a blast and hard work. Once the booth was done that is when the fun began.

There were times I got to walk around the show and see lots of things and even try a few of the products first hand.

The Rinea Paper Foil company also had a booth and I got the opportunity to work for a few hours with the owners. It was so great being able to get to know the owners. Sometimes you don’t understand the passion one has until you meet then in person. Diane and AK are awesome people.

One of my favorite things was being able to create a mini hat at the Charity Wings Booth. This organization does awesome work and the ladies that were working the booth were super sweet.

Here is a hat made with Tattered Angels Papers and Mists, the photo was taken by our Finland visitor Lena Holmstrom. She was such a joy to have in the booth and to hang out with.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

Another of my favorite things was connecting with people that I only knew on the internet. Several of them I walked up to them and said, Hey I stalk you on the interweb. It was funny. Some loved it some gave me a “look”.

Carol Dube was the best. She just smiled when I took a selfie at her side. It didn’t bother her one bit. lol She even gave me a couple sheets of her gelli prints she was making. I felt blessed.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

There was so much that I got to see and do that I made a video that is entirely too long, but I hope you enjoy seeing the goodies and can hear the joy in my voice.

If you ever get to go to Creativation (or whatever they call it next year) please go you won’t be disappointed.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

A Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas project. Little paper roses fill a mini 3 in. x 3 in. canvas. Rinea foil, Brutus Monroe ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Sizzix die, and a Silhouette image were used to create this Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

Being on the Rinea Design Team gives me the advantage of getting to play with beautiful foil paper. For this project I chose silver, light pink and mint green foils.

The Sizzix Bigz Die – Flowers, 3-D by Beth Reames was used to cut the flowers. Rolling the flowers with a quilling tool makes the flowers come together easily.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

Used Brutus Monroe Sea Chalk ink around the edges of the canvas and swiping a little across the top as well. Then a few spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – True Turquoise and Iridescent Gold coat the canvas to give a beautiful shimmer.

Recently I acquired a new wreath die and used this to cut the mint card stock. The wreath was adhered with hot glue.

A pink scrap of card stock cut with the Silhouette Love image. Cut at 3 in. Adhered with a light glue.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

I arranged the roses around the canvas and adhered with hot glue. I just love how this little canvas turned out.

Here is a video of the whole process.

The Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas is a beautiful mini canvas that would be perfect gift for Valentines or even for Mothers day.

Who would you give this Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas to?

How to make a Let it Snow Greeting Card

Today it’s How to Make a Let it Snow greeting card. Featuring Rinea foil..

Using Spellbinders dies to cut the Rinea embossed foils – Blue, Light Blue and Silver. I made this beautiful but simple greeting card. This paper cuts easily with die cutting tools.

How to make a let it snow greetting card

If the Rinea paper was a little stiffer I could see cutting this snowflake into ornaments to hang in a window. So that both sides of the paper could be seen.

Also used in this project: Brutus Monroe Cornflower Mini Chalk Ink pad to stamp the PSX Snowflake stamp and to ink around the edges of the card.

True Turquoise and Denim Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist was sprayed on the card topper.

The PSX snowflake was tamped in the cornflower ink. Then the Reina foil snowflakes were layered on top.

How to make a let it snow greetting card

The phrase “Let it Snow” is from Paper Studio and was stamped with Cornflower chalk ink on a scrap piece of paper. A crop a dial corner rounder in the quarter inch size was used to round the corners.

Here is a video of the whole process.

The Spellbinder dies made this card come together easily. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on How to make a Let it Snow Greeting Card.
