La-La Land Crafts CHA 2019 New Release Ballet Marci and Sightseeing Marci

Good morning everyone! Creativation (formerly known as CHA) is this weekend in Arizona. Going to Creativation is on my bucket list. It's actually the place that started my bucket list. 

What does Creativation mean to you and me? NEW RELEASE of course!! So many awesome things are being released today. The La-La Land Crafts DT will be posting projects made with the new release Friday - Wednesday. Tons of inspiration! 

Since I am not able to be there physically, I will settle for my work being there =) For the last 2 years I have had the honor of having my work at Creativation. All because of the wonderful La-La Land Crafts company. 

The first project that I made is a 3D project. It's a little suit case! 

Cute, right!?! And so very simple! I found a great tutorial on Pintrest. If you'd like to take a look at the tutorial, HERE it is.

On to the second project for today. A ballerina card. 

For this card, I used the new Ballerina Marci stamp. I wanted to make her tutu 3D. I cut out two Tutu Die cuts and colored them to match her outfit. I attached the tutu layers with foam squares and then used a strand of flatback pearls to adhere them to the tutu on the image. I love how it gives a little life to her outfit.

La-La Land Crafts January 2019 Club Kit Release

Good morning! Today is an exciting day! The reveal of the La-La Land Crafts Monthly Club Kit

 I was so excited to see that the pandas came back this month. They are so cute! 

The dies this month are awesome too! Loving the little wings. 

Every month, the design team does one project tutorial for the club kit members. This month, I did a tutorial on this little milk carton. This is the first time that I have made one of these without a cutting machine. I was pleased with how simple it was. 

The cardstock that I used is from BoBunny. This is some of my favorite Valentine's paper. I have had it for a couple years. I am going to see if I can get my hands on some more. 

Heart Locket
Heart Key

Panda: C6, C3, C1, C00, RV00

The second project I made with the new kit is a card. 

I had a lot of fun coloring Marci for this one. Instead of coloring her legs skin color, I thought it would be cute if she was wearing leggings. I colored her legs pink and then added tiny green hearts to match her shirt.

Reneabouquets Scrapbook Layout and January 2019 Mood Board Challegne

Hi everyone! I am super excited to share the new Reneabouquets Artist with an Edge mood board challenge with you! 

To kick off this challenge, I made a 12 inch x 12 inch layout. I put it in a frame and gave it to a friend with a picture of her baby. 

I had asked Renea to make these wings with this layout in mind. When she showed me what she came up with I was in awe. Seeing the wings made me a little emotional, to be honest. Renea never disappoints! 

I used micro beads to add texture. I painted the cardstock with mod podge and sprinkled the micro beads over the glue. Once that dried, I did another layer of glue and micro beads. 

Look at these tiny feet! They are adorable! 

This is the mood board for this months challenge. 

I love the blue! It's fresh and bright. Like a new beginning. 

Take a look at the challenge rules and then hop on over to Reneabouquets Artist with an Edge Facebook group and join us. There is a ton of inspiring paper artists, mixed media artists and more.

December 2018 Club Kit from La-La Land Crafts

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!! Hoping that you are all having a fantastic day. Christmas is a relaxing day here at the Goodwin house. We open gifts in the morning, watch movies and nap until about 11:30 and then we head out to the Community Christmas Dinner to volunteer. This has been a tradition for us the last 8 or 9 years.

I love seeing all the smiling faces at the Community Dinner. So many people to talk to and laugh with. There's live music, Santa and his elves, and good food. 

Now, lets get on to the reason you are here...CRAFTS! I have really enjoyed creating with the December 2018 Club Kit. I am in love with these little pandas. I think they are my favorite La-La Land Crafts critter thus far. 

Of course I love them because they are way too cute, but I also love them because they are super easy to color. I am a huge fan of simple coloring. I tend not to like images that have a lot of little details. 

I used Copic markers to color all the images on the cards for today. 

Pandas: BV29, BV25, BV23, BV20, E93, RV00, RV0000
Cups: YR24, YR23, Y19, Y15, Y11

I used the La-La Land Crafts Scalloped Rectangle Die on both of the cards that I made today. 

I am in love with Marci's outfit! When I was thinking about the daisies, I didn't intend for there to be so many. I got a little excited and put too many yellow dots on the blouse. Lol

Copic markers used...
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, E0000

There is no more time to sign up to get this kit, but you can sign up now to get the January Club Kit. You know January's kit is going to be a must have. They all are!!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!
