Bokeh Technique

Written by
Good afternoon! Today's bokeh technique is brought to you by the one and only, wonderful Stacy Buller. She made this card and I basically begged and pleaded with her to teach us all! So here we go... enjoy, and Thank you Stacy! <3 For this technique you will need: Watercolor paper 3-4 colors of Distress inks, including Picket Fence (although in the video that inspired this she used a Mixed Media white ink by Colorbox) 1-┬áCut your watercolor paper to the desired size. 2- Spritz paper with water making sure it is nice and wet. 3.┬áRub your distress…

I want to first explain how I use my planner, (if you don't want to read this story skip down to "So you have your planner, Now what?" I don't do it like most people. In 2012 I jumped on the Project Life bandwagon... by March I had fallen off. In 2013, I started it again with high hopes and good intentions. By late February I was doubled over in morning sickness and that was the end. So comes 2014... yes I got this! I didn't even make it through January! UGH. When the planner craze hit and I went…

Let me start this story by saying I had seen something inspiring on FB which led me to an Instagram account which led me to another IG account which led me to a hashtag and on and on this goes somedays and when all of a sudden *BOOM* I saw this post by @flamingoplanner about a digital planner. Surly not, this is silly, it looked JUST like an Erin Condren this could not be.... say what! Well the rabbit hole went on, all. Night. Long! I was fascinated... I LOVE my planner, I kind of love buying all the supplies…

Recently I came across a feed in my Facebook for those Chameleon color changing markers, and though I have been fighting the urge for over a year I finally caved in. Let me explain. When I was at CHA in January 2015, I was NOT into planners, stamping and coloring. I was NOT into or had even ever tried a Copic marker. I was a "stamp with black ink and call it good" kind of a card stamper. (yeah yeah... lazy I know) Since then that has all changed... so after many reviews and questions about products and "what do…

That's right you read that correctly... add videos to your layouts! We will be using QR codes which any smart phone or tablet has an app to read! I have been doing this for years and I am so thrilled to share my quick and simple process with you! Let's start with a question that I get asked A LOT.. "How do I know that in 10 years the QR code will still work?" Well a QR code is a series of dots that withhold information, specifically website information, much like a barcode in a store. If you use the…

Hello! Today I am here with my Christmas card for sketch and template #2 on the route for the 12 days of Christmas Cards and Tutorials!

I will show you screen shots from PSE 10 since that seems to be the…
So you have a Silhouette machine...WOOHOO! Let me guess, unless you buy the item from the Silhouette store to cut out it doesn't get used much right? WRONG...! I am going to help fix the fear factor in using your Silhouette! I know I was there too... "Wow there's a lot of buttons.. what do they do?" "How do I make these things that people are posting on their blog / pinterest?" "Change the settings... yeah, um, no thank you!" "Well I tried that and it didn't work... I'm just going to stick to quick simple cuts." Sound familiar? I…

Phew I did it.. all 7 days. In hindsight I think "not bad for my first year" I know next year what to do differently. What different pics I missed out on this time that I want to remember for next time.. but all in all I am very pleased. I think I captured the essentials of what our life currently looks like... or close to it. I got the words down and the pics taken. So for me, that's a win. Today's pics and words: Started like most this week. A few mid morning feedings, as usual baby cakes…

I woke up at 243am and wander to the bed. I sneak into the bed careful not to wake a quietly sleeping baby! As I slither under the covers I look over and ask myself "when did I become a co sleeping parent?" NONE of my other babes were given this status of being able to sleep in the bed with me time after time, or nursing to sleep. I am sure I am setting myself up for trouble but she can't sleep in the nursery with Kelsey because Kelsey refuses to sleep and instead goes bonkers and jump up…
