Howdy!

It’s Inspire Create Share Blog Hop time! This month we are introducing the New In Colors for 2019-2021! They are so gorgeous! I found this color sample from Brian King (one of the demos I follow) to show you the colors. I love how he makes them look wet and I need to learn how to make my own!

Purple Posy is not available at this time in ink pads. A quality issue they are working to solve. So, I chose to use Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, and Seaside Spray for my project today. Do you want to hear a funny-ish story as to why? Yeah, so I was ordering the other 4 ink pads and apparently mixed up my numbers and got a Terracotta Tile re-inker instead of the ink pad. Durn-it! Thought about using it in my spritzer, but needed to keep it simple today due to time constraints! (subbing, baseball, new job)

I chose to use the Beauty Abounds stamp set and Butterfly Beauty dies since they were a happy carry over from the Occasions catalog to the new Annual catalog! Yippee!! I hadn’t used them yet! As I was beginning, my brain went blank. Not an idea came to me at all! I knew I wanted to use the big die full of butterflies, so I opened up the catalogs to see what Stampin’ Up! made with them and found a card to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) in the Occasions catalog on page 13. Never throw away your catalogs! They are full of inspiration and CASEable projects! I changed it up a bit, of course, yet fairly close.

I added the Scalloped Linen Ribbon under the Story Label punch.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Healing Hugs stamp set (another happy carry over to the New Annual catalog!) and distressed the edges in the Rococo Rose. I used dimensionals under the label and adhesive under the ribbon to adhere it to the butterflies.

I like how it turned out. What do you think? Now it is time for you to hop on over to Debbi Green to see what amazing creation she has to share with you! Enjoy!

Mini Craftroom Makeover Has Begun…

Howdy!

So sorry I have not posted in awhile…I have a really good reason! I am excited to tell you that I am in process of a mini craftroom makeover! So fun!

We moved the computer desk for The Boyz (hubster and son) into the spare room and are building me a BIG craft counter! Here are a few pictures so you can see it in action…

Before…my craft counter was the little connected side table, there where the star towel drapes over the chair on the left…

Desk removed…

1548371321537.jpg

The other half of the room after the desk was taken out…adding a stereo to the room…lots of sorting to be done…

1548371276591.jpg

Building an 8 foot counter for along that wall where the desk was! Making shelves to go underneath for more storage and stability for the counter! 

Here Hubster is measuring and cutting…I am helping where I can since our son is in school! I took the week off to get this done!

 

More pictures to come as we get it done! 1 shelf put together…heading back to garage to keep going! This is so exciting! Stay tuned!

Thank you for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

Happiness Surrounds

Hello, Hello!

I trust you all had a blessed Thanksgiving weekend! Ours was just us 3, yet very blessed!

It’s time to really kick it in gear with Christmas cards! I usually start sooner than this, and I do have a few cards made. However, since I send about 75 or so to family, friends, and son’s teachers and this year have some more of my own teacher friends and board members from baseball…I better make a whole lot more than what I have so far!! In the past I designed 1 card and then make them for everyone using an assembly line process. Since becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and having many more than 1 or 2 stamp sets to choose from, I have made a few designs and then assembly line those. This year, I am just making whatever I feel like making! Might make more than 1 of a few of them, might make a whole bunch of them! You’ll see as I go what I create this year! Largely it will depend on time! Assembly lining is very quick and easy. Creating all new takes a little longer…however, inspiration abounds all over the internet! 

For example, I wanted to make a card today using the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and Thinlits since it is only on sale until the end of the week (Nov 30th) and I had yet to use the set. I know, shame on me letting other stuff get in the way of my crafting! Nothing concrete was coming to mind, so I went to the computer and looked up 2 of my favorite challenge blogs and decided to put them together!

First, I needed colors and these are some lovely ones:

CC&S color299-001

Then, I needed a sketch:

541

I chose the Tranquil Tide cardstock as my base, the Cherry Cobbler cardstock as my layer, and the Mint Macaron cardstock for my snowflake and sentiment. After that, it all came together faster than I thought it would…it just flowed right out of my fingers with no hiccups at all! Ok, there was one at the very end when I realized I had put the snowflake on upside down! Ugh! Luckily the Tombo Liquid glue had not set yet and I was able to spin it around! Shhh, don’t tell! Hahaha!

Here is the card for CAS Colours & Sketches, which means Clean And Simple:

1543251311550

Darn glitter gets a little crazy, those extra sparkles blow off, luckily. I really like the simplicity of the card! I used my stamping sponge quarter to distressed the sentiment star with Tranquil Tide and added a rhinestone that was clear but I colored it with a red sharpie. You can get red rhinestones from Stampin’ Up!, I just keep forgetting to put them on my order. The silver glitter paper is a fun addition to make it feel like Christmas…cool and snowy! Wish we would get some snow!

For Sketch Saturday, I turned it up a notch and added background stamping using Versamark and distressed the edges for a framed look on both the Tranquil Tide and the Cherry Cobbler. Plus, I added 2 more rhinestones.

Here is how this one turned out:

1543191984251

I also flipped the 3 glitter paper lines back over to the side that the sketch was on. Not that I had to…just wanted to make them different. I did the inside of both cards the same using a sentiment from the Nature Sings stamp set (which happens to be 10% today Nov. 26th!) and the border stamp from the Happiness Surrounds.

 

Let me know which one you like better!

Sketch Challenge…so Fun!

Hello, again!

Are you in shock? Nothing for 4 months and now I am on a role! 2 in one day! WooHoo!

So, this is the other card I mentioned in my previous post…same sketch, but I needed to clean it up a bit since it was for the CAS (Clean and Simple) Sketch Challenge and I forgot to read the rules before I began my card! That will teach me!

As much at the white disturbed me originally, I kinda like it better after everything was all put together! I have gotten so used to covering up white spaces, especially in my scrapbooking that I forgot how clean and pretty it can look!

Here is the sketch…

Love the simplicity! Here is my card…

1502658103609

I used the same colors as the other one…Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Powder Pink, and Perfect Plum (still too dark, but really works for this card!). I shoe the sentiment this time instead of saying Happy 50th. Inside it says Happy Birthday.

Anyway, clean and simple is not such a bad thing! I am sure my friend Jodie will like this card as much as I do!

Which one do you like better? I am leaning toward this one, myself.

On to more cards and challenges after some Costco shopping with the family!

Color Challenge – I used SU! colors

Good Afternoon!

WooHoo! I had a very productive weekend in the craft room!! It felt so very good to get back to my card making and playing! I have a bunch of 50th birthdays coming up for friends and family, so I figured I should start there. And, since I was starting up again, I figured I should go whole hog and jump into some challenges.

I found a new Challenge site called Color Throwdown…sounds so exciting! And the color combo was a fun one! White, Aqua, Light Pink, and Lavender…fun and refreshing! From my Stampin’ Up! colors I chose: Tempting Turquoise, Powder Pink, Whisper White, and Perfect Plum…they were the ones I thought got the closet to the color palette they showed.

I chose to do some water coloring because that seems to be the new thing! I also used a sketch from a different challenge, but I used too much background color for that challenge, so I made another similar card for that challenge and will post that after this one.

I think it turned out pretty good for a first time water-color back ground for me. I think I need  to do more of that and see if I can improve my skills…so watch out world! The perfect plum is not as bright as the sample palette, but it is as light as I could make it. Thought about using the Wisteria Wonder, but it seems darker…which is strange because it is in the Subtle category for  Stampin’ Up! Now I am thinking I should have water colored the Wisteria to see if it got lighter. Oh, well. Next time I will know better. I like this card and I am sure my friend Anna will too!

So, there you have it! I am back in the groove and jumping in with both feet! You will see more of me more often that before! I am making a committment to this and myself to do this blogging regularly! I have so much I want to share with you! I took pictures of packing up all my crafting stuff and want to share how I packed it up for those of you who may be facing the same thing!

So, chat with you soon! Enjoy your day! Happy crafting!

Blessings,

June

Long time no see!

Hello, again!

WoW! I haven’t blogged since February! I can’t believe it! Shame on me! However, I have a really god excuse…I moved! I packed up my house and moved from Colorado Springs, CO to Whitefish, MT within 1 week! Yep, fast paced! We moved for my husband’s job with the Railroad. And we are so very happy we did!! It is so amazing here!

When we got her in March, this is what it looked like…

We were excited for the snow, even though we had no time to go play in it! We spent a month in a hotel before we found a place to rent. Our son started school after a week off for the move and got to go skiing for the first time with the 6th graders up on Big Mountain.

And, now our neighboring play area is Glacier National Park! Oh. My. Gosh! So gorgeous! So happy to have such a wonderful place to go hiking whenever we want and it’s only 30 minutes away!

So, now you are all caught up and may forgive me for not posting in 6 months! I am ready to get going again and jump in with a bang!!

If you would like to see some “Behind the Scenes” photos of how I get creative you can follow me on Instagram at junebugcreations29. Or, if you would like to “Get to Know Me” a little better you can follow me on Facebook at Junebug Creations.

See you soon! Happy crafting!
