Sundays With Lorraine

Hello my crafty friends, and welcome back to Stamp & Scrapbook Expo’s blog.  I can’t believe we are approaching the end of our 2019 show season.  But not to worry, we still have this blog to keep us connected!  If you happen to be in California we still have one show left.  Our final bravo will be held in Sacramento, California on November 1-2.  I hope to see you there, I’ll meet you at the Creativity Center and we’ll create something beautiful together!

Create Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

Many of you know that I am a huge fan of Art Anthology products so when I came across these gorgeous art journal pages, I knew I needed to share the inspiration.  Farrel created this double art journal page using Metal Effects Medium, Colorations Sprays, and some stencils.  I hope these art journal pages inspire you to break out your favorite stamps and stencils and create some mixed media magic of your own.  For additional details on how easily this project comes together, click here and I will be happy to escort you over to Art Anthology’s blog so you can check out the short video that the Dream Team has prepared for their fellow paper crafters.  Enjoy!

Grateful For You by Amanda Korotkova

There is something to be said for combining kraft colored card stock and white accents, it creates such a warm yet elegant look.  Simple elegance at it’s finest!  At the risk of being titled an “enabler”, I highly recommend checking out the Thanks and Encouragement stamp set that Amanda used on this adorable card.  Thank you cards are the ones that I like to send out often so I would consider this set a “need” not a “want” on my crafting bucket list.  If you agree, click here and I will lead the way over to Simon Says Stamps and we can purchase it together, lol!  Happy stamping, my crafty peeps.

How to Make Sweater Pumpkins from Sleeves by Christy

How stinkin’ cute are these sweater pumpkins?!  Leave it to Christy to think of such a clever way to recycle our well-loved sweaters.  Not to worry, if you don’t have a sweater that you want to cut up, you can always take a trip to your favorite thrift store, they always have all kinds of sweaters and the prices are amazing, so grab a few in different fall colors and have fun with them.  Just thinking out loud here, but wouldn’t several of these sweet pumpkins in a cute basket makes a nice hostess gift at the next dinner party you’re invited to?

Garlic Butter Chicken Bites and Asparagus

After the busy day that you’ve just survived, I’m sure you looking for a fast and easy dinner.  Not to worry, with a little help from our friends over at the Eatwell101 food blog we can have a tasty dinner on the table in about 30 minutes.  We all know what that means, happy campers at the dinner table and you get to go back to your craft room to work on that project you’ve been dying to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have been inspired to give a few of these ideas a try.  See you soon!

Hugs to all, Lorraine

    The sweater pumpkins are so cute. At first I thought they were garlic bulbs. Both are perfect for my Italian kitchen.

    Yum! The chicken asparagus looks wonderful, gonna try it with cubed pork loin instead of the chicken. (I don’t have chicken on hand) .
    Any idea about the 2020 schedule? I like to plan ahead as I have to travel a distance to the “South Bay” shows Thank you
