Saw this stamp on the Hero Arts site and I thought they were so dang cute. The stamp is LP131 and Hero Arts also give you plenty of samples of what they did with this adorable stamp.
I also found this oh so cute wood album by Genuinely Jane Studios this item is #106. Its 5.5 x7.5 and comes with 8 pages total including front and back covers.
This is what I have done with the owl ablum so far. Notice the eyes, I sprayed the wood with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Tuscan Sun) and pearl ex powdered pigment then I stamped on it using gold metalic ink (memories) and the Hero S1832 Italian Script.

I have been seeing owls everywhere I go lately. I tend to get on tangents and this week its OWLS!! I think they are sooo cute. This is what I have done with owls this week for ebay ... its titled "WHOO Loves You"
I hand drew my little owl, then I paper pieced it together. On the second page I stamped my image and then paper pieced layers on the stamped image for more color and texture.

I was given a challenge to use the LUXE Sundress collection which by the way I love. I really like the colors because they are so warm and of course love flowers ! I also put some core'dinations cardstock in the mix along with some beautiful May Arts ribbon.
So after about a week I came up with this idea since Mother's Day and Father's Day are close and I was thinking about my parents and how much I loved them .... this is what I came up with.
I will be teaching this class at Cherry Blossom Studio on Sunday, June 28th. You will also get a bonus template and directions for a cute "beary" card.

It seems that everytime I teach a class there are several ladies that want to do their layout "just like mine" which is fine but then when someone does something a little different - they get all upset because they made a mistake. There are no mistakes in creating ... in fact from my personal experience my "mistakes" usually turn out better than what I originally had in my head. I did these wall art a while ago. Can you tell which one I made a "mistake" on?
I want to leave you with this motto that I read on etsy today I liked it and thought I would share "Practice, Practice, Practice Creativity is like a muscle that you need to flex regularly. I dread staring at a blank piece of paper, but everything begins with that first stroke. "
