Year in Review ~ Goals

Jan 9, 2012

I’m very goal oriented and love creative challenges, so in 2011 I set two goals finish my second book without a hitch and find someone that believed in me enough to launch a very vintage stamp line. With a lot of hard work and faith by the end of the 2011 I was able to check these two goals off my list. It is such a nice feeling to set goals and see them obtained. 1.

Such a DELIGHTFUL Day

Dec 2, 2011

Yesterday, was such a DELIGHTFUL day. The advance copy of my latest book Delight In The Seasons arrived… yes, I sat and looked at every single page feeling so accomplished. I allowed myself to soak up the excitement and joy of seeing all my hard work finally in print. I don’t do this nearly as much as I should. I’m always ok, finished that now move on to the next idea/project… And once again, F+W Media, Inc. did an incredible job turning my vision into reality. Their entire team is amazing. They help to create some of the most gorgeous books on the market. If you are wondering a bit about this book here is how they describe it on the back cover… Make Each Season Delightful! Lisa Pace is at it again, this...

Snowman Mini Box and Album

Nov 11, 2011

This cute little guy can be found in the gallery in the back section of “Delight In The Details”. I just love him and had so much fun sculpting his face. My favorite part is his carrot nose. I also thought you might like to see what is inside the small altered box. It’s a cute teeny tiny, mini album I filled with snow photos of the girls from winters past. My little Mr. Winter looks so cute sitting on the shelf of my scraproom and I can honestly say, I have enjoyed looking at him every single day. This is one of my favorite projects I created for my book and wish Maya Road would bring this box back. Maybe if you bug Caroline enough for me she will. It never hurts to...

The Big Book of Scrapbook Pages

Jun 22, 2011

Have you all seen this book in your local scrapbook or craft stores? If not, you need to look for it as it’s filled with LOADS of inspiration for every scrapbooking topic you can imagine. I was thrilled to be asked to create a few projects for the book. F+W Media included a spotlight on my book “Delight In The Details” along with my two projects. As you can see Jenni Bowlin sponsored products for these two projects. Oh how I love Jenni’s products. I certainly do have a hoarding issue with her items. If you love Jenni Bowlin products as much as I do make sure you check out her Inspiration Blog…. it’s filled with LOTS of incredible projects. Thanks for the sponsorship, Jenni. Here is a closer look at the two projects...

Creating patchwork accents

Feb 25, 2011

                        I like to incorporate a patchwork look on many of my vintage inspired projects. This is a bit time consuming but an accent I feel is certainly worth the effort. All I do is cut patterned papers in different sizes then sew a straight stitch all around the inner edge of the patterned paper. Once I have all the stitching completed I take a pair of zigzag scissors and trim the outer edges on some of the patterned papers and leave some with a slight distressed straight edge.                   Above shows some of the straight edges distressed slightly and inked using a creamy brown ink. Below shows some of the edges trimmed using zigzag decorative...

Paper Mosaic

Feb 24, 2011

This mini album is featured in my book on page 48. They didn’t show the cover so I thought I would share it with you now since Spring is just around the corner. The step outs on page 49 show you how to recreate a paper mosaic that looks like broken pieces of china. This is certainly another project of mine that is filled with dimensional objects. I guess I visualize in 3-D as nothing looks finished until items are popping off the project. I find how people create and visualize very interesting. My dad carves incredible objects out of wood. He can carve just about anything you request including wildlife and people as well as loads of other things. What I find fascinating is he cannot even begin to draw a 3 circled cat. My mom paints...

Condolences and another tag…

Feb 10, 2011

First I must give my heart felt condolences to my Aunt and cousins. Yesterday, my Uncle David passed away peacefully at home. Uncle David was a quiet man yet when you talked with him he was so interesting as he could talk about all kinds of wonderful topics. Sadly, 10 years ago he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and not long after that Parkinson’s disease. Aunt Brenda cared for him at home every single day from the time of his diagnosis. Even though it is a blessing Uncle David has passed on it is still so sad and he will be missed. Aunt Brenda was a wonderful example of how family should care for family. We never heard her speak of any frustrations which I am certain there were many and we never ever heard...

Feb 5, 2010

This month on the Memory Makers blog they are offering a free project from my book “Delight In The Details“. It is my “Crepe Paper Rosette” tutorial.
