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 creative industry. Here are a few projects that recently inspired me to get my creative mind moving and I hope they inspire you as well.
Traveler’s Notebook Spread by Rachel O’Neal
Traveler’s notebooks are not just for keeping your trips organized, they’re also a very creative way to record your treasured memories. Traveler’s notebooks are totally customizable and can be used in so many ways. You can use them as a planner to keep up with your day-to-day activities, along with memory keeping, bullet journaling, and so much more. I love how Rachel added additional space for photos and journaling using the waterfall technique; a little washi tape to the rescue.
Peace Window by Carol Hintermeier
Many of you know that I am crazy about watercoloring using Art Impressions stamps. On this sweet card, Carol used AI’s window stamp set titled Peace Window. Last I checked there were over 40 Window to the World images to choose from, so I’m sure there are a few calling your name; click here and I’ll take you over for a peek. These Window sets make creating perfect little works of art a breeze. Want to watercolor, but don’t know where to start? You will never be left without inspiration when you have Watercolor Wednesdays, which are weekly watercolor tutorials on YouTube. Click here and I’ll show you the way. There is a good reason that they have over 17K subscribers!
Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll
Art can be a very meaningful way to express emotions as shown by this beautiful tribute to the Notre Dame Cathedral. I highly recommend stopping by the Simon Says Blog and watching the video, you are sure to walk away with a few new techniques to add to your creative resume.
Chicken Piccata by Taste Of Home
After the busy day that you’ve just had, I bet you’re scratching your head wondering what’s for dinner. Well not to worry, with a little guidance from our friends over at the Taste Of Home Food Blog you can have this yummy Chicken Piccata on the table in about 30 minutes. Laced with lemon and simmered in white wine, this stovetop entree is super easy and a real hit with the family. I love to pair the chicken with some buttered noodles and a simple salad and you’re good to go.
Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with me. I hope to see you soon at one of our shows, I’ll meet you at the Creativity Center.
Hugs to all, Lorraine
