Saturdays With LeAnn

Welcome back on this beautiful summer day!  I hope you will be inspired today and that you won’t hesitate to try something new; you never know what you are truly capable of unless you explore some new techniques.  It really makes me smile knowing that you have found some time today to get crafty, so sit back and let the inspiration begin!

Paradise At Home By Missy Whidden 

Summer is definitely one of my favorite seasons.  I enjoy the time outdoors and especially enjoy my grandchildren.  This adorable layout really caught my eye as I have spent many hours swimming this summer with the kids.  This is one of those layouts that will inspire you to get your summer photos scrapbooked.  Do you enjoy mixed media backgrounds as much as I do?  You will love all of the techniques that Missy has to share with you.  Sometimes you just don’t know how to get started, or where to begin.  Missy’s video will help you build from the foundation up using different mediums and supplies you may already have on hand.

This summer layout is not only fun but very whimsical as well.  Let me take you on over to Little Nugget Creations where you can see a step-by-step video tutorial and all the details of Missy’s layout.  Step out of your comfort zone and see what you can create; you will be so amazed at your mixed media creations.  Have so much fun creating!

Hello By Keia Shipp-Smith

Embossing is a wonderful technique that can add a subtle or bold impact to any project depending upon the embossing powder you use.  One card can look many different ways with the use of color and textures.  It is so fun to create a card that expresses your personality.  Time to break out your heat gun and have some fun embossing!

Keia heat embossed the background using clear embossing powder to add visual interest and just the right amount of impact.  As Keia began to blend the colors together she used the Taylored Expressions blender brushes to get just the right amount of coverage as she added one color on top of the next.  If you would like further instructions, please click here and I will be more than happy to escort you over to Keia’s blog Confessions Of A Paperholic so you can take down some notes on the supplies she used along with her techniques.  Happy creating, my friends!

Tags Gift Holder By Laurie Schmidlin

Today I want to share this fabulous Tags Gift Holder project.  Not only are tags fun to make but they make a perfect gift as well.  This is a wonderful, simple, and adorable way to present some gift tags!  This is certainly a gift that can always be used.

You can make these fun gift tags to add to that special something you will be giving, and adding in the gift tag packaging is a wonderful extra bonus.  This will personalize your gift and make it look so adorable!  These are so fun to create and take no time at all.

You will see all of the supplies Laurie used to create these darling tags and gift tag holder, along with the template for the pocket.  Let me take you on over to Laurie’s blog Just Give Me Stamps.  Laurie always has so many wonderful projects to share that you are sure to be lifted up by all of her talent!

Peach Frozen Yogurt By Kelly Senyei

We all know that there are lots of good yogurt options out there.  However, it is so fun to make your own yogurt and you can easily enjoy fresh and awesome flavors like this Peach Frozen Yogurt.  Are you looking for something fast and easy to make with your fresh summer peaches?  Give this fabulous recipe a try!

This is certainly a great recipe to make on these very warm summer days.  This will cool you down and your family will love you for making it!  You can also give it a try using raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, or even blackberries.  Just adjust the yogurt to your taste.  You will lick the bowl clean, you don’t want to waste any of it because it is so yummy!  Let’s pop on over to Just A Taste so you can write down the recipe and begin making your family a yummy treat!  Enjoy!

Are you in need of a much needed weekend away with your creative friends?  Have you ever thought of attending one of our wonderful Stamp & Scrapbook Expo weekends?  Click here and I will be happy to escort you over to our website so you can check out our show schedule.  With many shows around the nation, there should be one close by that you can attend.  You will have the best weekend ever, and one that you will always cherish.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s projects.  I look forward to seeing you soon!

Hugs to all,
