Saturdays With LeAnn

Good morning, my crafty friends!  I hope you are all enjoying a nice, relaxing weekend.  Are you ready for some inspiration overload?  I am so excited about the wonderful creativity that has been popping up in our social media feed each day, and I have some really amazing projects to share with you.  I hope you feel the same inspiration as I did as I came upon these wonderful projects.  So with that said, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Beautiful Big Smiles By Bea Valint

Do you love mixed media layouts?  Whether you are an experienced Mixed Media Artist or just itching to get your feet wet, this is one post you do not want to miss.  You are going to love this adorable layout.  Mixed media is such a great way to work with some of those great products that you have been a little timid to us.  This is also a great way to use some of those leftover embellishments you have stashed away, along with some of your stencils, inks, paints, gels, and pastes, all to give it a beautiful flare.

Beautiful Big Smiles

Sometimes you just don’t know how to get started or where to begin.  Bea shows us how to build from the foundation up using different mediums, or using whatever supplies you happen to have in your craft room.  Let me escort you on over to the  Bea Valint blog where you will see steps that she has taken to create this fabulous layout.  I am sure you will have a fantastic time creating a beautiful layout using up some of your supplies.  The end results will put a big smile on your face.

Crocus Flower Shaker Card By Lindsay Lajola

Shaker cards have been quite the trend for some time now.  They are always such a fun card to create just by adding some different elements to create your own personal card.  This card really pulls out all the charm of a shaker card.  The coloring of the beautiful crocus flower really makes Lindsay’s card stunning and whimsical.  Wouldn’t you just love to be the one to receive this adorable card?

I instantly fell in love with this charming card and Lindsay really did a fabulous job creating it.  She is totally inspiring and her projects are so creative.  Let’s pop on over to Pretty Pink Posh where you can see more details of Lindsay’s card.  Step out of your comfort zone and see what you can create; you will be sure to be amazed at your beautiful creations.  Have fun creating!

Snowflake Mini Winter Album By Autumn Clark

Do you share my love of mini albums?  Then you are going to love today’s inspiration piece designed by the very talented Autumn Clark.  One can never have too many mini albums!  You know that is true!  They bring a smile to anyone’s face and are a treasure of lifetime memories.  Not to mention the almost-instant gratification they bring!  They make the perfect gift that will be a favorite gift and treasured forever!  Not only will this be a warm and fuzzy gift, but it also doesn’t take much time to create.  What an instant enjoyment for you and the one receiving the album.

This perfect mini album will capture all of your winter photos.  I just love the way that Autumn made some “Polaroid” style pages to add to her mini album.   There are so many details that Autumn used in designing her beautiful mini album; I highly suggest you come with me over to the Sew Paper Paint blog so you can see the many details and wonderful products that she used to create this masterpiece album.  A big shout out and thank you to Autumn for sharing this magnificent book with us.

Lemon Blueberry Bread By Erica Pitera

Lemon and blueberries make a nice pairing in this lemon blueberry bread.  Enjoy a slice with a morning cup of coffee or tea.  It’s a soft, moist bread studded with blueberries and bright lemon flavor.  It’s a quick and easy bread recipe everyone will love and enjoy.  This is a recipe you will definitely want to put in your favorite recipe box.


Blueberry and lemon are one of my all-time favorite combinations.  It looks so good, it just might make you want to bite into your computer screen right now!  I bet you are ready for the recipe, so come with me over to Erica’s Sweet Tooth where you will find the ingredients and directions to make your own warm delicious bread.  Be sure to take a look at the many more fabulous recipes created by Erica Pitera.  She is a true inspiration in the kitchen!

I hope you have been filled today with lots of fun ideas and tons of inspiration.  Enjoy your weekend creating and I will see you back here very soon with many more fun projects.  Thank you for taking some of your precious time and spending it with me today.

Hugs being sent your way,

    Good morning LeeAnn. I am having my coffee and dreaming of the taste of that lemon berry cake. Boy does it look amazingly tasty. Multi media is my thing and I would love to try some of these products from Bea Valint.
