I Already Miss This by Doris Sander

I love working with Jenni's products.  No matter what releases I mix and match, it all blends together so beautifully and effortlessly.  I think that is just part of its vintage inspired charm.

On this page I mixed several new wood veneer pieces (buttons, mini flashcards, and a mini book back) and gold star rubons with some older product including flatbacks from two different releases, houndstooth washi tape, and a couple pieces of my all time favorite patterned paper (that I can use over and over again).  I also couldn't resist adding in a vintage button card from my latest Antiquarian Add-on Kit for the perfect finishing touch.

Celebrating Twenty

Not only am I happy to be celebrating the new releases from Jenni Bowlin Studio, but I am also thrilled to be celebrating my cat Cleo's twentieth birthday this week.  Twenty!  In cat years, that's about 100 -- I think.  Some of the cat age converters I looked at only go up to 19.  All I know is that for an old chick, this kitty is still looking good.
I used a bunch of the new JBS products here, including these lovelies:
Clockwise from top right: 
stencil, wood veneer buttons and flashcards, flatbacks, and gold rub-ons. 
I gathered together a few of the wood veneer flashcards, leaving "lucky" visible (since I am truly lucky to have had this sweet little fur ball in my life for the past two decades). I flipped over two of the flashcards and added some gold rub-ons to them. I love JBS rub-ons -- they go on so smoothly!  They should actually be called smooth-ons.
I threaded a bunch of the wood veneer buttons around the photo block, journaling, and other layers of the layout. They add so much charm to the page.
In addition to some past JBS papers (perforated kraft "Receipt" paper and "Shirt off My Back" Red/Black collection paper -- which I "softened" a bit with gesso), I incorporated a vintage cancelled check and a receipt, the latter of which includes my journaling. 

Thanks for visiting today!

collecting inspiration

I'm loving the newest goods from Jenni Bowlin Studio this season. I've put together something really simple today featuring a bunch of the lovely wood veneer pieces, flatbacks, rubons, and triangle sequins! One of the biggest projects for a class I'm currently taking is learning to see and collect inspiration from the world all around you. It's been a very eye opening, and lovely experience. I have to say, it really makes you think a bit more about the world all around you that you pass by all the time - sometimes without even seeing.

"I love the spring time feel of this paper collection and thought it paired wonderfully with this picture of my son on his favorite tree swing. I added some complementary watercolors ot my page with soft blues and just a hint of yellow.  Then I decided to add a little contrast and painted the chipboard letters with India ink for my title."

Thank you ladies for your wonderful pieces of inspiration!

New Product Focus: Wood Veneer & Sequins

I am loving all the new wood veneer designs and sparkly sequins in the newest JBS release! I knew they'd be the perfect embellishments for a page about our recent trip to Mexico, so I gathered up my favorites and got to work!

To create a beachy feel on the background, I lightly brushed it with Speckled Egg ink that I watered down.  Once it was dry, I used the Plus One Stencil with aqua acrylic paint and added some of the cross-hatch texture over the top.  I then cleaned out the stencil and used it again with a teal fine-tip marker to trace additional plus-signs around the painted areas.

I layered a few paper scraps down the center of the page and then arranged my wood frames vertically as well. I sized my four photos to fit inside the Insta-Frames, which will perfectly hold 2x2-inch prints. Adhering them with foam dots helps to pop them up off the wood a bit.

I used the Speech Bubbles stencil to trace shapes onto white cardstock. Then I cut them out with small scissors and used them to hold my journaling strips (also brushed with water down Speckled Egg ink.)

Finally, I sprinkled several of the wood veneer clouds, clear sequins, and flower sequins around the page. They add the ideal finishing touch to this vacation page!

The wood veneers, stencils, and sequins are now available online and in scrapbook stores. We'd love to see what your create with them!

Happy Scrapping!
