Here's a picture of some of the materials I used for my journal.
* not the technique
It's all about the design.
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

There are three new rubber stamps available in my corner at Whimsy Stamps… each of them are from some of my most favorite digi stamp designs!
Here they are! :-)
‘Sweet Little Donkey’
(‘Sweet Little Donkey’ has been a freebie for some time, but he has been in high demand as a rubber stamp. So he is no longer available as a freebie here on the blog or in the shop. He is now regular price, and of course available as rubber at Whimsy Stamps!)
Enjoy, and have a lovely, crafty day!
Now AJ thought that this was the COOLEST cake ever and so the whole theme for the party revolved around the alien cake. Now in addition to coming up with fun activities and games I had to come up with an idea for the party invites. Of course the first thing that came to my mind was the Alien and Monster release from last September. I asked AJ which image he wanted me to use on the invites and he chose Squiggy the Alien
So now my task was to come up with something simple yet fun for a 5th birthday party. I found a fun paper pack that I got at the Dollar Tree (surprising I know) and the rest went together so easily. AJ had me make pink papered invites to go to the girls and the blue for boys. It was so fun to have him sitting at my desk with me while I made these for him. He made all the decisions for me. He chose the papers, the sentiment and the
markers I used to color the image.
Now all I have to do is print up some of these in big scale for coloring pages for the kids to take home in their goodie bags.
I hope you all have a great day and I'll be back with you next month to share my oldest son's birthday invites (as long as he doesn't go all crazy with the theme).

I love finding just the right quotation to accompany one of Melissa's Wonderful Images. I can sit forever sifting through quotes on a topic that relates to the image I am working with till I find the one that 'speaks to me'. A Few examples ...
The quote for this card using the image Makeup Brush was found by simply doing an internet search for "cosmetic quotes". I nearly died laughing when I found this one....so true, so true.

I thought it would perfect for a project I was working on. A friend asked if I'd make her 4 "Thank You" cards. Her daughter had recently shown a bunny at our local 4 H show, so I knew this one would work perfectly!
So I got to printing, coloring and picking out paper. And this is what I got:
