C'est Magnifique September Kit Reveal

 I am so excited to share with you projects I created with the C'est Magnifique September Kit. It is an amazing kit that is filled with fabulous papers and embellishments. 
 My "You and Me" Layout I created using the main kit, the flower add-add on and the embellishment kit. I also used mist, stencil ad modeling paste from my own stash.
 For my next layout I called "Together Forever" I used the main kit and embellishment kit. I also used modeling paste, a stencil I die cut out, mist and paint
 I made my "My Friend" and "You're in My Thoughts" Card using using the main kit, flower add on and flower add on kits. I also used die cuts, ribbon and stamps sentiments from my stash
Lastly, I want to share with you what I did with the packaging from the flower add on kit. I made a Tag Book using the main kit, embellishment kit and flower add on kit. So remember to think about what you can do with what your are about to throw away. 
Add on kits are still available to purchase in the store.  You can find them HERE.
I hope I have inspired you to create and will see you next time. Pam

Classroom Sign with Xyron

 Welcome to my Back to School project with Xyron. I am sharing with you a Classroom door/wall hanger that you can make super easy to use in the classroom.
 I began by using a Xyron Glue Stick and applying it all over a piece of 12" x 12" chipboard and then placing a piece of the Back to School paper from Pebbles to the top.
I cut and border punched 4 strips from the Back to School Apple Paper and ran them through Xyron Sticker Maker.( It a perfect size sticker maker for home, office or school.)
Place all 4 strips on top of back ground paper.
Cut letters from the Notebook Paper using your favorite dies. Once your letters are cut run them through the Xyron Sticker Maker. I use Quickutz Diesel Alphabet Dies.
Stagger your letters onto the background paper.
Add some fun sticker embellishments from the Back to School Collection. I also included some office supplies and metals from my stash on to my project. 
If you know me, lol, every project needs to have a bow. 
I hope you enjoyed my Classroom Sign and try to make yourself one. It could easily be adapt for your studio, office, etc. Have a blessed day and make sure to check out the other inspiring Back to School projects that are being shared this week on the Xyron Blog. Hugs Pammejo

Summertime Book Mark with Craftwell and Fancy Pants

 Hard to believe that it is already time to think about back to school and all the prep work that comes with getting back in the groove of school. Well to help out I made a fun Summertime Book Marker to share with you and hope it helps keep your reading assignments organized.
 Begin by lining up your plates.
As you can see you can place multiple dies and paper on to that big platform.
Once I had my bookmark cut from the Nautical Star Paper I took a piece of yellow and blue Core'dinations Paper and ran it through the eBosser using my Exotic Embossing Folder and sanded it off lightly. I place the blue on top of the book mark and the yellow behind the book mark prior to adding the library pocket that was wrapped with twine and tied with a bow. 
I added the Ship Wheel and Anchor that was cut from the metallic paper from the Nautical Paper Kit and added it to the book mark. I love that the book mark it so interactive with the card that comes out of the Library Pocket so you are able to take notes, write info, etc when you are using it. I hope you check out Fancy Pants Nautical Collection and try to make some special book marks for your books using the eBosser. Hugs Pammejo

A Special Day To Celebrate with We R Memory Keepers Trim and Score Board

A Special Day to Celebrate is a layout out that was shared on HSN using the Trim and Score Board from We R Memory Keepers. What an amazing not only can cut but score also, just have to love a tool that you can use for several different applications.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray Collection for my layout and made some cute accordion flowers using the Trim and Score Board. I cut 1" x 12"  strips of paper,  scored on the 1/4" line and then folded the strip up to create the flowers. When placed on my layout I place an Enamel Dot and Shape in the center.  Do you notice the green background paper? I created it by first cutting my paper using the trimmer and then scored it at a 1/2" both vertically and horizontally to give my plan paper a bit of texture. Don't you it gave my layout a fabulous look?
I love flags!!! To create these I cut different length of paper on my trimmer and instead of them just laying flat I scored them in the center, glued them at the score line  and placed them on my layout so they would stay up on the sides. Well I hope you enjoyed A Special Day To Celebrate layout of my grand daughter Annie and look forward to you stopping back in. Hugs Pammejo

Precious Life Canvas with Xyron and Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop

 Today I am sharing with you my first post for the Xyron Team using Perfect Paper Crafting Air Brush Tool.
I started by first dry brushing my 8x8 canvas with white gesso.
Placing my stencil on top of the canvas when dried and using the Perfect Paper Crafting Air Brush Tool that I had place a yellow distress marker in I air brushed over the top of the stencil. I then repeated with a dark pink distress marker so I would have a bit more color on my background. 
Using my Xyron Tape Runner, 6" strips of yellow paper and black card stock I placed them on the edge of my canvas. 
Here is a closer look at both the air brushing and strips. 
I sprayed the white flowers using the air brush and dark pink marker along with the ribbon I used for my canvas. 
Here is a closer look at the ribbon and flowers once placed on my canvas. 
 I love flags so of course I  had to add a few to may canvas, plus it gives you a closer look at the air brushing. 
I hope you enjoy my canvas using the Perfect Paper Crafting Air Brush Tool and remember to Make Every Single Day the Very Best Day of Your Life!!! Make sure to check out Angela Holtz Blog to check out her project. Hugs Pammejo

A La Mode Layout with Fancy Pants and Crafwell

Hi it is Pam to day sharing with you Fancy Pants Nautical Collection using my eBosser from Craftwell. As soon as I seen the collection I knew I wanted to do a layout of my husband with his new toy...the A La Mode.
I began by first cutting a strip from the collection and then random laid circle dies on my paper and ran it through the eBosser. Once the circles were cut out I placed it on my stripe background paper.

I repeated using Rockstar Alphabet dies and a piece of the yellow paper from the Nautical Collection.
Once I had them cut I ran them through Xyron "X" Sticker Maker.  It is really a fabulous tool for all the little pieces you cut out.
Here is a closer look at the circles and the letters once they are placed on the layout. I added a bit of twine over the top of the flags and a few bows to give added dimension. 
Hold on to those circles you cut out and layer them together or just add them here and there it gives your piece a great look.

Challenge #14 Button it Up with Craft Hoarders Anonymous and Altered Pages Blog Hop

Challenge #14 Button it Up!
Crafters of every stripe are button hoarders! Buttons are pretty, inexpensive, and extremely versatile. If you are a card maker, quilter, layout artist, or anything in between, you probably have a button hoard! Buttons come in many sizes, styles, shapes, and colors, plus they are easy to store...usually in cute containers! Pull out those bins of buttons and use some of them for your challenge project!
As soon as seen what our challenge on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog was this month I knew I was going to finally be able to dress this mannequin. The mannequin has been on my shelf for almost two years just waiting for that special event, lol. 
The mannequin is about 10" tall. I painted the top of the form in a flesh color and the stand part in black prior to dressing. 
I started my dress by first making an underskirt using 7 Gypsy Key Tissue Paper, fold it in half and do a running stitch at the top. (Be careful to gradually pull the thread through or the paper will tear) Once you have attached the paper to the form wrap more tissue paper around the top to form the dress top. 
I cut out 10 black and 10 of the tulle paper from Canvas Corp to form the skirt and attached them to waist of my mannequin and added a large red button to the tulle pieces.   (Canvas Corp is also one of our fabulous sponsors for this challenge.)
I wrapped the waist with sheer ribbon, made a pretty bow and added a tag from the Antique Sewing Collage Sheet from Altered Pages along with flowers and a few metal embellishments.
Of course with the challenge being "buttons" I had to add a buttons to my mannequin. 
Wow, that was a lot of photos but here is one more of how I finished the bottom of the stand. Love these little scissors I had in my stash. 
To finish my project I made a fabulous card from the scraps I had left of the Canvas Corp Paper and flowers. I love the vintage Antique Sewing Collage Sheet from Altered Pages and thought the image of the little girl was perfect for may card. I am so glad you stopped by my blog to check out my project and encourage to check out the rest of the projects for the CHACB  and Altered Pages Design Team post. 
Remember to get out those buttons and link up your projects to the Craft Hoarder Anonymous Challenge Blog for a chance to win the prize from Altered Pages.
