Welcome back this wonderful Saturday morning! The weather here in Utah has been so beautiful. I certainly have been enjoying all of the fall colors and the nip of the cool air. It is such a beautiful season! This is a perfect time of year to gather all of the projects you’ve been wanting to create and maybe even tackle some new techniques. I hope to bring you some inspiration today for your next creation!
Life Is Better With Friends
This darling layout is sure to catch your eye as it is filled with gorgeous autumn colors. I just love the vintage and distressed look that was carried throughout the layout. Don’t you love the feminine details and the soft, pretty colors?
Gabrielle added several different mediums which combine to make this layout very striking. I am so impressed with Gabrielle’s layering techniques that really give this layout a pop. This is such a wonderful way to preserve that special moment captured in your priceless photo. Can you imagine what a heart warming Christmas gift this would be to give to a treasured friend? This remarkable layout was created by Gabrielle Pollacco. Be sure to pop on over to her blog Such A Pretty Mess to find many more of her sensational projects. You are sure to be inspired by Gabrielle and I highly recommend you stop by often to see her latest projects.
I want to share with you another fabulous layout using a photo as the main focus. Elina has hand drawn, colored, and extended the branches along with leaves from her photo. She has added some die-cut leaves to the bottom to give some texture and depth. This brings a strong visual impact to your page.
Leaving the background white enhanced the rich autumn colors from the photo. What an inspirational layout! Thank you, Elina, for being such an inspiration to us. Click here and I will be happy to take you over to Elina’s Arts & Crafts so you can take a closer look at the way she put this fabulous layout together. Happy scrapping, my friends!
You Are In My Prayers
Recently I have had two very special friends that have been having some health issues. When I came upon this card I instantly knew this was the perfect card to give these wonderful friends. This soft, elegant card would really warm a heart!
This card was created using a digital stamp by Power Poppy called Rose And Chamomile. The beauty of a digital stamp is that you can make multiple copies, rotate, and overlap them as necessary to get the shape you desire. This card is one that you could change the sentiment and give for any occasion. Break out your markers or even your colored pencils. You will have so much fun creating this card with the digital image.
With the holidays just around the corner, this beautiful dessert is one that will provide an abundance of compliments and be enjoyed by all. These puff pastry-wrapped pears are so elegant and very easy to make. You can serve them with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or even raspberry sauce; you can also simply enjoy them plain or top them with vanilla ice cream.
We are creative in our craft rooms, so who says we can’t be creative in our kitchens as well?! If you are looking for an exquisite dessert for your holiday planning, let me escort you over to Sugar Hero where you will be able to print out Elizabeth LaBau’s recipe. While you are visiting her blog, be sure to check out all the other fabulous deserts as well. I promise you will not be disappointed, and you will find yourself spending a little more time in your kitchen. Enjoy!
