Keeping up with the feather trend...

Here is another layout I did for my Guest Design Team term for Jenni Bowlin Mercantile, and it incorporates one of my favorite trends right now.... feathers!

The kit came with the awesome JBS die-cut feathers, and it also had a feather stencil.  Using the stencil, I put glue over one of the feather stencils, covered it in fine gold glitter and then cut it out to make my own embellishment.  I then used the stencil whole (with all four feathers) over a piece of cardstock, and I sprayed several different inks on top, using a gold spray ink as the base.  I love getting messy and experimenting with stencils!

And, of course, it didn't hurt that Chloe had feathers on her shirt to go with the theme (did this scrappy mama plan out this photo shoot with this layout in mind?  hmmmmm, neveeeeer ;)

Here's another layout from the awesome JBS kit:

Love the stamps that came with it, too - that little airplane stamp gives just the right amount of extra detail!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  I'm going to see Pink in concert tomorrow night, and i'm sooo excited!

Celebrating fall...

I don't know about you guys, but I love this time of year.  There's something so beautiful and magical about the changing colored leaves all around.  Our neighborhood, in particular, has old, huge trees that make it a gorgeous sight at this time of year.  Now raking and bagging all those fallen leaves is another story ;)

I think this is my favorite layout I did for my Guest Design work for Jenni Bowlin this month.  This kit was perfect to create fall projects:

I had a lot of fun cutting into some of the beautiful patterned papers and adding in some leaf stickers, and the wooden leaves added the perfect touch.

Will be back soon with more JBS projects!

Jenni Bowlin Guest Designer

I'm SO excited to share with you guys that i'm guest designing for JBS this month with the AMAZING November kit. 

This is the first layout that I created with the kits:

I used the main kit which you can find here,  as well as some goodies from the mini album kit and the Historian add-on kit.  The monthly kit is packed full of awesome goodies including the new JBS exclusive wood veneer shapes - each month, the JBS kits will feature a new wood veneer product.
Here's a close-up of the wood veneer leaves - I just love them!
Also, Jenni is having a membership special this month that you definitely want to check out:

I can't wait to keep playing, and i'll be back with the rest of my projects soon!

Hope everyone had a great end to their October and a fun time trick-or-treating if you went.  Please tell me that i'm not the only one sneaking my kids' candy into my mouth, piece by piece, when they're not looking! ;)
