Saturdays With LeAnn

Happy Birthday Little Girl


Welcome back on this beautiful Saturday morning; I appreciate you stopping by today! I am so excited to share some more wonderful projects. Hope you had a nice week, and I am sure you are ready for a relaxing (and creative) weekend!

My first project to share with you today is created by the very talented Debbie Olsen. Debbie demonstrates on her blog how to create this outstanding wall décor for your home. To start this project, Debbie used the new Cosmo Cricket watercolor pre-embossed paper using either clear or gold resist. Believe it or not, all you have to do is add water. The beauty of this paper is that it comes in 8 x 8, or 12 x 12 paper pads. This is one of those WOW projects!

What Lies Within Us Wall Decor

Debbie rubbed some distress inks onto a plastic palette, then randomly painted them onto her watercolor sheet. After completing her desired look, she then embellished it with a sweet sentiment, a pretty bow, and a button. When completed you will have a masterpiece of artwork that will make a great addition to any room.  Visit Debbie on her blog Thinking Inking for your instructions on how to create this fabulous wall décor.

Who couldn’t fall in love with this gorgeous layout?  What a perfect collection to be used for either a girl or boy. I just love how the papers have that vintage feel. Cathy McGrath created this layout using Maja Design papers.

Baby Boy

Cathy has some wonderful inspiration to share with us on how she created this outstanding layout. Whether you just had a baby, or your baby is now grown up, or a grandmother like myself, pull out those precious photos and create a beautiful layout like this one. I would like to say thank you to Cathy for her inspiration and allowing us to share her beautiful creation. Do yourself a favor and stop by her blog Sew Creative; you will be very happy you did.

I fell in love with this soft, warm vintage card created by Cherry Nelson, so I just had to share it with you today. I am so inspired every time I visit her blog Cherry’s Jubilee. I love all of her details from ribbon to lace, and buttons to doilies. Cherry has an amazing way of putting together her cluster of embellishments.

Happy Birthday Little Girl

Whether your style is vintage, or simple and clean, you will be amazed how creative you can be with the supplies you have laying around in your stash. Dig into your supplies and pull out some of your favorite treasures. Don’t be afraid to mix and match whatever you have. A big thank you to Cherry for sharing this precious card with us. She is such an amazing designer!

I know many of you share the love of mason jars just as I do, so I thought that you might enjoy this adorable card designed by Laurie Schmidlin. This cheerful birthday card will for sure brighten up someone’s day. Sometimes giving a handmade card is more of a gift than the actual gift you are giving.

Birthday Wishes

This is one of those perfect stamp designs that can be adapted to fit any occasion. The mason jar can be filled with so many things. This adorable card was filled with flowers and kept very simple. I recommend visiting Laurie’s blog Just Give Me Stamps; you will truly be inspired.

Now that your crafty mind is spinning with so many fun projects to make, let’s turn those gears and go into the kitchen and create a wonderful treat for you and your family. These delicious Blueberry Lemon Pie Bars will be such a tasty treat for tonight’s dinner.

Blueberry Lemon Pie Bars

What a fun combination that you don’t see very often, blueberry and lemon. This takes a pie from the pie tin right into a baking dish. This yummy dessert will not sit around in your kitchen very long! I can guarantee it will be all gone in a day or two! Let’s pop on over to Fresh April Flours to grab this recipe. When in need for a good recipe, be sure to visit Lynn.

Hope you have a great and relaxing weekend. Always remember creativity involves in breaking out of your traditional style. Never hesitate to try something new. See you again next Saturday; thank you for your visit today!
