Mixed Media Tag for Emerald Creek's Anniversary!

This is an extra special month over at Emerald Creek because Kim is celebrating one year of being in business! I am so thrilled for her as she has made such huge progress and worked her butt off to achieve what she has. She is truly a role model! This month on the Emerald Creek Dares blog is an "anything goes" challenge! It is a great time to try it out, as there have been some recent changes to the challenges and there is now a $50 credit for the shop to be won! I really hope you can check it out!

This tag was inspired by some of my current favourite Emerald Creek products. I am especially loving the Rainy Days stencil. I hope that my project gives you some fun ideas for using embossing powder and stamps on a smaller scale tag and please also check out my process video below!

Wonder Woman Hero Layout for Emerald Creek Design Team

Today I am sharing my latest project for Emerald Creek Dares. The challenge was to incorporate a hero theme, but for the contest it is an "anything goes" month, which makes it super easy to enter! Please check it out for your chance to win $50 to the Emerald Creek Shop!

This one was a bit of a challenge for me, but once I had an idea, the project came together quite easily! I love watching all of the superhero movies and learning about the characters, but I also love real-life heroes. I wanted to combine these two ideas in my project and the result is a scrapbook page comparing my mom to Wonder Woman! It really isn't much of a stretch! I had a ton of fun creating this page with a giant shaker window and I hope you enjoy seeing it all come together in the process video!

Washi Tape Tuesday: Die Cut Embellishments

My  apologies for not having any videos last week, but the good news is that I have two new ones for this week! Here is the second video in my washi tape series and it is all about die cutting your own washi embellishments. I hope that you enjoy this technique and check back soon to see how I use these pieces. On Thursday I will be sharing my next Emerald Creek DT project.

 I think the "remember" die cut would be really cute on a planner spread. I will probably use the leaves for a card of some kind and the frames would work great on a layout or a card. These kind of embellishments are a great way to stretch your dies and use them in new ways. It is also a fun way to use washi in a way that is much more non-traditional.
I love how these rainbow leaves turned out! It would also be cute to cut out several in monochromatic washi patterns. To check out some other great starter ideas for using washi on layouts, watch the series intro here. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have had a wonderful summer. I am actually looking forward to the slower pace that fall will bring and I also can't wait to dive into my scarf collection again!
