October projects

Above an altered frame created with American Crafts with a pic of my adorable grandson Hunter.

This lo is created with American Crafts. I used colorbox ink to color the thickers. Pic is of Kenzie K from many years ago.

Card created with American Crafts, used my crop-o-dile to add the eyelets to the flowers.

Another card created with American Crafts.

And another American Crafts card...such a cute boxer puppie!

I altered this canvas...using the reverse side of the canvas I inked with colorbox ink, using a stencil to add the swirls and circle. Then added my fav Rusty Pickle products.

And a lo of adorable Hunter in his monkey costume...using the brand new Rusty Pickle line: Thriller! Love this line!

And then there is silly me in this winter lo created with Rusty Pickle White Christmas line.

Welcome blog hoppers!

Thanks for stopping by for the Rusty Pickle blog hop! If you just happened to stop by and didn't know about the hop...then be sure to stop by the Rusty Pickle blog to see where to start... there will be lot's of inspiration and prizes along the way.
I want to celebrate all things mini!!
Here is my mini album: Always my Love.
I Created with the Rusty Pickle acrylic scalloped album (see complete Rusty Pickle supply list below). Many people love the look of acrylic but aren't sure what to do with it: on this album cover I used several different distressing techniques to try! Why not give them a try...acrylic is super fun and Rusty Pickle has lots of great acrylic album shapes to choose from.

I used a nail file (or sandpaper will work) to rough up the front of your acrylic album, this will allow for the glimmer mist and ink to stick better. Spray on glimmer mist and blot with the Ranger inking tool (or just allow to dry if you prefer). I used a brown and green for a nice antique look.

Next I used ink on the edges, and stamped one of my florish stamps using the same ink, sprinkle on the embossing powder and use a heat gun to set. The acrylic as it heats will warp a little but as soon as your powder is set flatten it out with a heavy object....I just use one of my fav scrapping books and applied a little pressure to it for a brief time... this will flatten it right out.

Next add a few of Rusty Pickle rub-on's...which I must add go on like butter! Now with the roughed up album you can stamp your title right on your cover...but be sure to allow time for it to dry (so it doesn't smudge). Once my cover was distressed I added a butterfly, some stickers for the title, and paper to the inside of the album cover.

Thanks for stopping by your next stop in the hop will be: Rusty Pickle Chef Kim G.

I created this for the Rusty Pickle blog challenge, go {here} to find out details! This is my dd Kenzie K and her friend...Rusty Pickle Candyland on this one! I did not do any journaling in this one since it was a gift...I thought I would let them fill in their story!
And a mini album of the Oregon Jamboree, a huge Country concert that runs over 3 days... I made this for some friends that joined us. Usung the Rusty Pickle Mayflower collection, I wanted to give them a disc of all the pictures I I added a pocket on the last page to hold the disc.

August where did it go?

Hard to believe summer is almost over...dang! Here are some projects I created in August!
Rusty Pickle Mini Album "All My Love".

Sweet Baby blue eyes, my beautiful grandson Hunter. Created with October Afternoon paper, thickers, Rusty Pickle Rubon's.
A lo of Kenzie using Cosmo Cricket, lots of distressing and layering.

An altered canvas for Kenzie using a couple different Rusty Pickle lines. The canvas was first inked with Ranger distress ink and a stencil used for the background.

Bubble Beauty is one of my friends daughters. Alttle handstitching on this one.

of course another of Hunter...finally caught a smile and had to document it! This is a NEW line from Rusty Pickle, not on shelves yet. It is super cute!

Another using the NEW Rusty Pickle, my daughter Kelsey. I used white acrylic paint on the cardboard.

and yet another NEW Rusty Pickle line...of guess who. I used a Quickutz butterfly die on this one that was recommended by Brenda of Rusty Pickle. Love the bright colors of this new collection.
Thanks for looking!
