Basically Bare: Authentique Swap

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Hello Everyone!

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone is staying cool, we are so going through a heat wave here in So Cal, and it's really HOT, good thing I work in an Air Conditioned place, otherwise, I would melt! Fashionably of course lol.
Today I am sharing a new Basically Bare layout I made for a swap we had with Authentique last week. It was super fun to work with the Curiosity Line. I chose to use a picture of my darling Archie because he is the cutest! Always learning, always being...well curious! Take a look!

I did some misting, some distressing, and made some fun banners with the paper! I love the weight of the Authentique paper, its really textured and perfect for distressing too! I used some fun Basically Bare acrylic stars and some of the new Fanciful Frames, I am in LOVE with those!!! Gorgeous!

Thank You for stopping by everyone! Did you all notice we are playing Ispy over at The PaperHaus? Go have a look, you might even win a small prize!


Project W023: Shabby Chic Altered Journal + News + Video?

Friday, August 17, 2012

Hi Everyone!
Happy Friday!!!!!
Sorry Iv'e been away for a few days, I have been frantically working on my "not-so-secret" project! It's all coming together and I am super excited!
So I have news, I have been contacted by different people to make videos, I am sort of shy in front of my own webcam lol but I am thinking of doing some Live Ustream Shows, what do you all think? I recorded one for you all to get a glimpse of what to expect. That is Project W023, I made a step-by-step altered shabby chic album. Of course sticking with our theme of using our stash and our products we have sitting there. My dear friend Cathi sent me a Pink Paislee Mistables album, I was just dying to use it, so this was a perfect time. I know lots of people who have this album, so it would be fun to see everyone give this a try. Here is the album:

Lovely eh? Ok here is the recorded show, please excuse my: nervousness, dirty room, I look tired and it was 85 degrees or more lol so I look "hot" lol.

Video streaming by Ustream

So there you have it! Let me know your thoughts below, if you would like to see more videos, or you prefer the written instructions!!! Your feedback is appreciated!

Be sure to buy all of your crafty Prima goodies at Paper Issues, this is where I bought all of my Prima Stamps and Flowers used in this tutorial!
Thanks for stopping by and all of your support.
