Today I am showing you the Trend Setter Collection from Fancy Pants Designs! I just love the colours in this collection! As well, there are so may great prints, such as the chevron and herringbone, that could be used on so many projects! I also love the corrugated papers – they add a great texture to your pages! On the page above I used the 6×6 paper pad and tore pieces from all of the designs. I collaged them on the page and then did a wash with the White Distress Stain. I added a piece of the corrugated paper and went over it with the White Distress Paint. In the video I show you the difference between the 2. I added a quote from the sticker sheet as well as the title.
Here I used the Cardstock Sticker strips and the tags. I added a paper clip on top. Fancy Pants has some paper stencils, and I added the dots and chevron on the page with some acrylic paint.
On this page I used one of the frames to frame my journaling. I used some of the die-cut banners and alphabet stickers. I tore some of the 12×12 paper for strips in the corner, added a few more stickers and stenciled on some dots!
This just shows you the difference between White Distress Stain and White Distress Paint. On the left is the stain, a bit of the middle is bare, and the right is the paint!
I love the Trend Setter Collection from Fancy Pants Designs! It is versatile for many occasions!

As I was walking along King W/John St. last week I came across this exhibit from the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival. All of these pictures were taken by Martin Parr, with the subject being Food. He was commissioned to take photos of food around Toronto. I have included some of the photos, but there are a lot more on display.
The Photography Festival runs from May 1-31, 2013. There are exhibits around the city to check out!
Today I am showing you a sampling of the new Spellbinders Media Mixage Collection! We are focusing on the new Bezels with co-ordinating dies. Spellbinders teamed up with Susan Lenart Kazmer. She designed a line of jewelry bezels, then Spellbinders designed a die that co-ordinates. This makes cutting the paper a cinch!! Now you will have perfectly sized paper for those bezel designs! They come in a variety of sizes and designs. Above I used the large oval with 2 smaller ovals. I cut the paper from the new Spellbinders Ephemera Paper pad using the dies. I then stamped dream and added a resin flower. I filled the bezels with Ice Resin and then added some glitter.
On this necklace I first painted the bezel with the Vintaj Patinas. I then cut my papers and added them into my bezels. I filled them with the Ice Resin as well. After I completed my pendants I decided to add a bit more patina. I recommend finishing with the Patinas before adding the resin, or else you may get some sticking to the resin.
I cut all the paper using the new Media Mixage Artisan X-plorer die cutter. I love this machine because it is small, making it quick and easy to cut the small dies. You can also emboss with the machine.

I am always looking for food that I can order while I am out. I was happy to find out that a Harvey’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich was only 7PP. The chicken is 3PP and the bun is 4PP. It’s nice to know that if I am out shopping, I can order this and not ‘ruin’ my day!!
On the Weight Watcher’s plan we are give 49 Weekly points, on top of our daily points. For the most part, I only use a small amount of these each week. I thought this week I am going to try to use most of the 49 points and see what my weight loss will be. Lately I will have 1 good week, then 2 small losses. This week I lost 0.2 lbs. I have a party to go to and a brunch this weekend, so I thought it would be a good time to experiment. I will let you know how it goes.
Last Friday my friend and I attended the Spring Creativ Festival. I typically only attend the Fall Show, but we decided we needed a crafty day out! We signed up for Vicki Boutin’s Scrapbook Layout Class. The kit was sponsored by Doodlebug. I haven’t done a traditional Scrapbook layout in a while, so it was fun to play with the bright papers and embellishments. Above is a picture of the project. It is a 2 page layout.
We had some lunch and chatted and then hit the booths to do some shopping. The Spring show is about a 1/4 of the size of the Fall show. You get all crafts including knitting, crocheting, felting, jewelry making, quilting, sewing and paper crafts. It is fun to look at the different crafts and products available. I made a few purchases. I bought Gemma a little cross-stitch necklace kit; I bought some stencils; I have been making some Arimugumi Animals so I bought a couple crochet hooks; and I bought a little embroidery kit.
Gemma made her necklace last night. It was quick to make and simple to follow the directions. She loves that she made it herself and wears it proudly!
Sometimes you just need to have a crafty day and these events give you the perfect excuse!
Today I am showing you a bunch of products that Maggie Holmes designed for Crate Paper! I am starting with this cute mini book. I decided to do a book on Gemma’s older ballet pictures. I added the DIY Photo Overlays over all my pictures. I love these!! I also used the Book add-on kit, which included the sequins. In the video I show you my trick to add sequins to your projects. I also used some thickers, washi paper sheets, fabric polaroid frames, Rinestone clips and bows.
I also made an Art Journal page using the Polaroid frames, ephemera and sequins.
Finally I made a card using some of the ephemera, bow and sequins.
