Saturday With LeAnn

Finders Keepers

Hello, my fellow creatives!  Happy Saturday and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper for another dose of creative planning fun!  I hope you are all having an awesome October – can you believe that Halloween is just in a few days?  I love Halloween and what a fun time it is to dress up, eat yummy treats, and enjoy every minute with my family and precious grand-kids!  I hope you get to do the same.

Mini Album With A Spine By Gloria Stengel

If you are a long-time follower of mine, you know I love to make mini albums!  I love the fact that they are so fast and easy to complete; just think of them as the instant gratification of scrapbooking.  I love to have them on display for family to enjoy, flipping through them and reminiscing over the fun activities we have done in the past.  When I came upon this adorable mini album I knew I had to share the inspiration.Mini Album With Spine

So what usually sparks your imagination and gets you inspired?  Is it the project you might find, the products, the story you want to capture, or just working with some of the creative juices you have in your mind?  I love to go to my craft table and see what kind of journey is awaiting me.  Creativity involves in breaking out of your traditional style.  Take a look at your project in a different way and never hesitate to try something new.  A perfect example is that it’s ok to mix and match your styles to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.  They will always complement each other.  Let’s pop on over to Scraps of Life where you will find a detailed video showing how Gloria created this adorable mini album.  What a fun and creative way to make a unique gift.  Who wouldn’t love a mini album as a special gift for the holidays?

Autumn Thank You By Laurie Schmidlin

Have you had a chance to use Ken Oliver’s Liquid Metals?  If not, this will be a perfect opportunity for you to try them.  Laurie created this beautiful card using the liquid metals. If you are a fan of stamping and inking then you are going to absolutely love creating this darling card by Laurie Schmidlin.  I fell in love with this fun stamp and die set titled Banner In Bloom and Banner and Bloom Confetti Cuts.  Talk about being perfect for your cards, scrapbook layouts, or even to use on your journals!  The sky is the limit with this fun set.

Autumn Thank You

I don’t know about you, but it sure makes me happy when I get to try new techniques, especially when it comes to stamping and inking!  I would like to thank Laurie for sharing her design with us today.  I hope you will take some time and visit her blog Just Give Me Stamps.  You are sure to be uplifted by her talent and I know you will enjoy more of her outstanding projects.

Finders Keepers By Sara Emily Barker

Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year.  Brilliant leaves, fall flowers, crisp blue skies, and here in Utah you feel that brisk coolness.  Such a lovely time to be outside and enjoy all of these beautiful things.  I absolutely fell in love with this outstanding canvas.  The gorgeous leaves look like you went out into your yard and picked them up!  This canvas is simply stunning!  What a masterpiece to create to have in your home during the autumn season.

To Everything There Is A Season

The leaves are spectacular!  Don’t you just love the gorgeous color and texture that Sara achieved on these leaves?  That blue background is a refreshing palette to offset the beautiful metal frame and wonderful fall display of leaves.  I literally gasped; what a beautiful work of art!  For the complete step-by-step tutorial, click here and I would be honored to escort you over to Sara’s Closet so you can follow along as she shares some great tips and techniques.  This is certainly one you will not want to miss!
