Smile by Mona Pendleton

I fell in love with the mixed media technique on this background, along with the soft textures and colors that complement this beautiful layout. Adding a textured background can really make your photos pop, not to mention how fun it is to create using many mediums such as texture paste, stencils, inks, etc.


Mona Pendleton is very creative when it comes to mixed media. Click here and I will take you over to her blog, Cupcake’s Creations. She will give you some instructions on how she created this gorgeous layout. I hope you have been inspired by Mona to incorporate some mixed media into your scrapbook layouts.

Follow Your Arrow by Melody Rupple

I love the way the background contrasts with the main image. This card was made using an embossing folder and dies. Pull out some of your material scraps or felt and discover how beautiful your die cut flowers will turn out. Try letting your eyes wander over your supplies to see what else jumps out at you for other than their intended use and really stretch your stash.

Distress Watercolor Best Blossoms by Audrey Pettit

“This project was truly a labor of love,” says Audrey. Do you ever have one of those days that you don’t know where to begin? Look for those lost treasures floating at the bottom of your scrap supplies. Dig down deep and see what you can come up with, and work some magic of your own.

Customized Pillow by Debbie Hayes

Doesn’t it make you happy when you can create something that will save you money?  Even better to go to your craft room and come out with a beautiful home décor piece for your home without having to go out and search for that item. Today you can customize a plain fabric pillow to fit your own home décor.

Customize Pillow

This is such a wonderful way to make a stenciled painted pillow to coordinate with any chair. Would you believe this was done using Chalk Paint? By adding some water to the paint, it will sink into the fabric and will give the fabric a soft texture. Come with me over to Paint + Pattern and Debbie will give you fabulous step-by-step instructions on how to create your own personalized pillow. Happy crafting!
