Jake

Hello all my crafty friends,
Here is a project I made with the chipboard pieces “wonderful, sweet, loveable, angel, charming, incredible and amazing” from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com

I found this old picture of my first doggie named Jake.  He went to doggy heaven in 2013 after 14 years!  We loved him so.  I thought these words described him so well!  After all look how cute he was even though I made him wear bunny ears.
I first painted all the Chipboard words and then gave them a second coat with a final coat of matt clear.
I cut my photo and matted them with like papers.  I used a black and white main paper but then used watercolors to bring out the highlights of the pinks and green of the leaves.
I think it all came together well and showed how much he was loved!
I hope you enjoy!

Believe in yourself

Hello my Scrappy friends,
This is a special page because of the picture!  In my other life as a nurse I took care of patients and this person is very special to me!  He still loves to see me visit and give him a big hug.  You can get more information at #southernridgetradingcompany or https://cestmagnifiquekits.blogspot.com

I used the chipboard pieces  “ believe”  & “in yourself” and it is special as he is a very special person to me!
I cut out the ivy leaves and berries from the circuit, matted the pic from some Christmas papers.  I inked all edges.  I inked the chipboard pieces with green ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The end result is a festive page with an uplifting feel!  To see more information see Southern Ridge Trading Company at #southernridgetradingcompany
Happy New Year!

Life is a journey of the soul!

Good morning Crafty Friends,
This post was fun for me.  I used some old items in new ways. 
I used the frame piece and the saying “ Life is a journey of the soul” and the snowboarder from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  Check them out at #southernridgetradingcompany. 
I painted them first with a white paint and let them dry.  I then found some really old mica flakes in a mason jar that had been my grandma’s (at least 50 plus years old and she was the original crafter, lol) and some small broken glass pieces. 
I started my first layer at the top the snowboard and worked my way down creating layers to look like snow shooting off the board as it slices through the snow.  I covered the snowboarder’s body in mod podge and took the broken glass pieces and sprinkled them all over to cover and look like he had been covered in snow on his way down the mountain.  This piece was very heavy and loaded with modge podge so it took a while to dry.  I took an additional title to complete my page and colored it the same way.  I then covered the saying with clear matte finish.

While all pieces were drying I cut and mated my photo and papers. I adhered the two chipboard pieces with strong liquid glue and pop dotted the matted photo it to add dimension and put it all together.

The results I think show a fun filled day in the snow!

Thanks and keep crafting,

Deonna

Happy day!

Good morning Crafty Friends,
This post is bright and cheery; I love the colors on the page and used something new for me.
I used the frame piece and the word Gorgeous from Southern Ridge Trading Company. Check them out at #southernridgetradingcompany. 
I painted them first with a shimmery paint and covered entirely and let them dry.  I the broke out a new small watercolor set and used the yellow, green and purples from the paper I was going to use. Painted to my liking and heat set with clear embossing powder then topped it off with a shimmer from perfect pearls!  I took an additional title to complete my page and colored it the same way. 

Cut and matted my photo’s and papers, added a cluster of flowers and a yellow crochet dollies pop dotted it up to add dimension and put it all together.

The results I think show a happy evening with my Love!

Thanks and keep crafting,

Deonna

We all have them so lets use them!

Hello all my artistic friends,
This is just a little bonus project I made for the Southern Ridge Trading Company Design team.
I saved all the punched out pieces that were left after making my projects and the rectangle was from the coral chipboard piece.
I cut out a tag and positioned the rectangle so there was a hole near the top.  I applied mod podge to the tag and placed the small pieces in a grouping I liked.  I then placed the larger rectangle around the pieces. 
I dried the entire tag with a heat gun and added paint, shimmer glaze and added pewter colored embossing powder to select areas.  I inked the edges with grey ink for a finished look and added numerous pieces of fabric and ribbons.
I hope you enjoy this little crafty tip!
Happy crafting,
Deonna

A little Buzzed!

Hello all my crafty friends,
Hopefully this post will bring a little sunshine into a rather dreary time of the year.  These cute little Bumble Bee earrings were made with the bumble bee set from Southern Ridge Trading Company #southernridgetradingcompany.
I first painted the earrings with black and yellow.  Let them dry well and embossed each area with yellow and black embossing powder and let cool.
I dug out my trusty jewelry making supplies and got started. I added complimentary beads and silver finding to complete the sunny look.
I hope you enjoy!

Happy Halloween!

Hello all my scrappy friends,
This project is for Spooky Halloween.  I used the Halloween border and cut in half at the cat.  I then hinged them together with a piece of card stock.  I used black mist to cover the entire piece and dried with a heat gun.  I the applied several layer of colors and glitter to highlight the cutouts.
I cut a triangle piece of chipboard to make the piece stand to make a spooky tea light holder.
The short video is the piece lit up with a tea light in the spooky darkness!
Happy Halloween.
Thanks and go make some scrappy fun!
