I am so excited to share this project with you today! I have had the honor and pleasure to take part for several years now in the Ranger Ink Designers Challenge. It is one of my favorite parts of CHA. The challenge is a fun one, the folks at Ranger Ink select a group of products to feature and send those products to a group of artists to create with. This year the focus products were the new Tim Holtz Distress Crayons. The featured surface was the new Dina Wakely Media Boards. [Read more…]
At CHA I released a collection of hand lettered stamps that are very doodle styled. I wish I had more projects to share with you featuring the stamps… except for this clipboard, I made all card samples for the doodle stamps. I was on a tight deadline and put them in the mail to the office. After they were long gone I realized I forgot to photograph them before shipping them off! oops! I will just have to re-make the to share them with you. 😉 Today though I have my favorite project to share with you that features the doodle stamps. I think it is a fun one too! [Read more…]
I am back today sharing another project from my booth space at CHA. It was so fun creating the samples for the show because I got to create a lot of different types of projects. When I started doing design work years ago, I specialized on home decor pieces. After getting away from those types of projects for a while, it was fun to revisit them. Today’s project is the first of two wooden trinket boxes customized with fabric flowers made from my dies.
When I make samples for shows, I always love to include photos of my loved ones in them. It is like having them at the show with me. For this sample, I featured a photo of my oldest daughter Anna. She has amazing green eyes that really shine in her senior photos. The photo of her was a perfect choice for this chippy vintage style shadowbox frame. [Read more…]
