LLLC Inspiration Friday: Halloween or Fall!


Happy Friday my friends!
What a week it's been, but most exciting is the change of weather here in California which signals the welcoming of the Fall season! I love Fall with the cool crisp air and falling leaves.... it's SO beautiful outside! And... yes, we get to break out with our cute boots and scarves --- yay!!

This week's Inspiration Friday theme is Halloween or Fall.  I created a card using the fabulously spooky Zombie Marci. As scary as she may seem, she is still the most adorable, right?!


I used my Prisma color pencils for this image, a change up from my Copic markers. 
I love coloring with Prisma to get a "soft" blend in the color...



Thank you so much for joining me today!

LLLC Inspiration Friday: Oodles of Doodles!


Hi my friends!

I'm here again this week with a La La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday Project to share with you!
This week's theme: "Oodles of Doodles"! ♥

I dug deep into my La La Land Crafts stamp collection and found sweet little Watercan Marci. It was exciting to be able to color her up again after so long. Don't you dare forget about your older LLLC stamps! Marci is just as adorable now as she was years back! ♥ And the good news is Watercan Marci and a lot of your old Marci favorites are still available at the La La Land Crafts store!

For today's project, I created a shabby chic card...



You'll see me use LLLC's Open Leaf Flourish die ALOT... it's my all time fav to layer with roses! ♥


I paper pieced little Marci and accented her dress and visor with Recollections pearls...


I used dimensionals to "raise" the flower on her visor... ♥





Copic Colors: 
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, BV00, R20
Hair: E23, E27, E29

Projects for The Piece by Piece!



Hello my friends and thank you for stopping by my blog today!

I have a few fun projects to share that I created for The Piece by Piece! I'm also including a video walk through of these projects for an up close look. ♥

First up is a card I created featuring goodies from Beverly's store and the fabulous Fall collection by Graphic 45... An Eerie Tale (available at Bev's store!)




I love, love, LOVE the resin flowers that Bev carries in her store. They are super gorgeous and the color palette goes perfectly with Graphic 45 and Prima!



Next up is this layout I created of my favorite picture from our wedding. This was taken right outside of Memorial Church on the Stanford University Campus. I was only 16 years old when I first saw Memorial church and the Stanford campus and I told my parents... "one day, I WILL get married here!" ... and so I did, 10 years later. ♥


Here are the gorgeous resin flowers again! ♥ And isn't the lace just luscious?! Be sure to visit Bev's store to see her fabulous collection of laces and embellishments!







Here is my YouTube video, walking you through each project in detail...


I hope you enjoyed these projects as much as I had fun making them!
