Bethany Unicorn

Who doesn't love unicorns?  Well it's Thrifty Thursday again, and you can get these fabulous unicorns from Scrappers Delights for just $1.  Get them here!

I was lucky enough to be able to color up this beauty.  She's Bethany unicorn.  Make sure you go to see the other beautiful entries by the design team for these cute unicorns.

And don't forget to get over to the Facebook group for more designs and offers!

An animal is something I would have never attempted to color a year ago.  But she's featured in Kit and Clowder's Animal technique class.  She's so easy after watching the video.  If you haven't taken the class yet, I strongly encourage you to do it!  Remember, the class price is in Australian dollars. The exchange rate to the U.S. is VERY good.  Take advantage of it now!

Swoon!!!!! I Am In Love!

I love bibles!  Truth be told, I'm one of those people that have several bibles because I love all the different options and covers and versions.  But recently, I've caught the bible journaling bug.  Writing in my bible isn't necessarily new, but CREATING in my bible has me giddy with excitement.  I am totally excited about journaling and leaving a legacy for my daughter down the road (even though she doesn't realize it).

There's a new bible out called Inspire and it has over 400 illustrations already done in it.  It's like buying an adult coloring book.......but it's the bible!!!!!  I am so excited!  Did I tell you that already?  What truly has me excited, other than the crafting part of it, is that this is one thing my daughter is excited to do.  It's something we are doing together.  I am truly grateful for that.  It is also bringing us closer to God with the study of his words!

Here is a page I just did.  The illustration was already part of my bible.  I just colored it and added some paint to the edge.  Then I fixed a tab at the top with washi tape.

If you're interested in knowing more about it, there's a fabulous website called  Go there and investigate and the head over to Pinterest and search for bible journaling.  You will truly be "Inspired" by all the journaling and pages done by a lot of truly talented people.

A Red Rose to Remember the One You Love

Hi Everyone!

It's Scrappers Delights Thrifty Thursday again.  Take a look at all the cute images you can get for $1.  Don't forget to hop over to the store and pick them up.  

Here is my DT project using Rose Tag.  This isn't a normal image for me to color up.  It's great to be on a design team that pushes you to do things outside your comfort zone.  I decided to enlarge the rose to 4 inches wide and crop the height to 4 inches to make it square.

I then print the image and cut the cardstock just a little over 4 inches.  Take a background stamp and stamp over the flower with a lighter color.  I used gray by Memento ink with a retired background stamp from Stampin' Up called French Script.  Then I colored the image with Copic markers.

To make the card, I layered up white cardstock in different textures.  One of those layers was embossed with a polka dot embossing folder.  The image was put on a black and silver foiled cardstock.

The saying is also from Stampin' Up from a kit called Petite Pairs.  It was also backed with the same paper as the rose and then wrapped with 1/8" white ribbon.

Copic Colors Used

Rose Petals R20, R22, R24, R27, R29
Stem G20, G21, G24, G28, T4
