Sundays With Lorraine

Hello, my crafty friends, and welcome back to Stamp & Scrapbook Expo’s blog.  As always, it’s an honor to have the opportunity to share projects designed by some of the most talented people in our very creative industry.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy today’s creative therapy.

Beautiful Wreaths By Anita Bownds

What’s not to love about this gorgeous wreath created by Anita using Amelia Rose Prima flowers and die-cut leaves?  I love how she creatively nestled that adorable photo in the center of the wreath.


Whether you are creating a wreath for your home or a miniature wreath on a card and or scrapbook layout, you are sure to find lots of inspiration over on Primas blog.  Click here and I’d love to take a field trip with you over to check out all the beautiful samples that their design team created.

Love Grows Here By Patty Eskridge

If you are looking for a quick and easy DIY project, then you are going to love this sweet home decor piece designed by Patty Eskridge.  With a few simple supplies and a little help from your crafty friend Patty you, too, can whip up a few of these in no time.

I hope you have been inspired to create your own customized piece.  Patty used a plain slatted panel for the base but you can also use what you have on hand.

Be Happy In The Moment By Rachael Funnell

This is a perfect example of where art meets scrapbooking.  Rachael certainly steps up to the plate with June’s Sketch Challenge over at Anna’s Craft Cupboard.  I love what she created using Kaisercraft – Stargazer range.  The denim blue background in combination with the white stamped images is the perfect background to support the priceless picture, don’t you agree?

If you’d like to see the original sketch by Rikki, click here and I will be happy to take you over to Anna’s Craft Cupboard.  I was immediately inspired by the sketch and knew I had to share.  Big hugs to both Rikki and Rachael for being such constant inspirations to their fellow paper crafters.

Pasta with Hummus, Olives, Feta, and Red Pepper

After the busy day that you’ve just had, I thought you might enjoy a quick and delicious dinner that the whole family with enjoy.  Like  Sheela says, “Hummus is far more than a dip — it’s a garlicky, creamy condiment that’s begging to be transformed into pasta sauce.”  What makes this pasta special is that it takes something you probably wouldn’t consider a sauce and makes you rethink the possibilities.  Click here and I will escort you over to the Kitchn Food Blog so you can jot down the recipe.

Thanks for the great visit and I’ll catch you on Tuesday with a fun article about what’s happening on the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo show floor.  I hope you have an amazing week ahead of you.

Stay crafty, my friend!

Hugs to all,

Lorraine
