Find Your Scrapping Mojo with Joni!

Joni Parker here today wishing you a Happy New Year!!

Ever seem to just lose your mojo?  You know, your creative juices just don't seem to be flowing?  I know that happens to me sometimes, so I have a few fun ways to give myself a little jump start and I thought I'd share with you today.

  1. I turn to challenges or sketches to see if I can get an idea going.
  2. I have a "list" (partially shown below) and I pick a few random numbers from each column (without looking) -- I then "try" to go along those paths, but I also don't force myself to use one of the options if it just doesn't fit.  I like this idea because sometimes it reminds me of things that I might forget to use otherwise (like cork or doing a monochromatic layout)
  3. I also let my 11 year old son "pick" stuff for me.  He loves that, and loves to walk around my scrap room and try to find items or "drawers/bins" to challenge his mommy.  Sometimes he'll even pick a theme for me from column 3 on that list I mentioned above.  He enjoys seeing how I used all the items he picked out for me.
Column One is "stuff", Column Two is "Manufacturers", Column Three is "Design or Topic"...but as I kept going, the list got all mixed up...whatever.


So, this layout is one of those times....I was stuck.  One of my best scrappin' buddies has a favorite challenge...Pick 3 random pieces of paper (without looking) and use them together.  I had my son pick the papers for me and then I turned to my list for other inspiration.  
In addition to the random papers I ended up with this list: a small photo, a frame, "My Clip-it-up" (which is a carousel that houses misc embellishments), Banners/Pennants, Rulers, Cork and Metal.  Sounds like a lot, but remember, I know I can take "off" something if it doesn't seem to work. 

I went to work with my papers and photo first, getting a basic design down.  Then I grabbed several of my Frosted Design kits and found some of the embellishments and a lot more than even my list.



So, hope that you can find your mojo when you seem to lose it.  I also will sometimes go to Pinterest or Magazines to get a little inspiration!!

Hope you have a great 2015!!

Merry Christmas!

Thursday, December 25, 2014

During this time of year, with all of the parties, gifts and decorations, it is easy to get wrapped up in the rush of the Christmas season. This is also a good time to sit back and realize how incredibly blessed we are. I don't know about you, but I know my year has not been perfect… there have been ups and there have been downs... but when I look at the big picture, I see how fortunate I really am. 



My Christmas wish for all of you is that your day and upcoming year is surrounded by family and friends. And for those of you who may be struggling with loss or difficult times, I pray you have peace and comfort. 

Merry Christmas! 

~Barb

New Friday Challenge - All About Family!

Friday, December 19, 2014

Hello all! Megan here with my last Frosted Designs Friday challenge for you.

Thanksgiving was just three weeks ago, Hanukkah started this past Tuesday and Christmas is only six days away! Then we all have the New Year's celebrations to enjoy. With all these holidays upon us, it makes me think of my favorite part of the holiday season - spending quality time with family.

So today's challenge is titled "All In The Family." Your project (layout, card, art journal page, mixed media piece, etc) must focus on family and include a quote about family somewhere on it.

Here is my example featuring a beautiful quote from Maya Angelou. I first printed the quote onto a sheet of letter size paper, then took a 3x4 journaling card and taped it onto the paper over the text so when I ran the same sheet of paper through my printer again, it printed the text exactly where I wanted on the journaling card.

Products used from the Frosted Designs store:
Heidi Swapp Hello Today Paper Pad
Heidi Swapp Hello Today Acrylic Words
Heidi Swapp Hello Today Flair
Heidi Swapp Hello Today Puffy Glitter Stickers

I used a sticker that says "Family" and included it in my journaling.

Merry Christmas Card with Rachelle!

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Hi there FD friends! Rachelle here with excitement to share my Christmas card I created using the December Kit "Traditions." I so loved everything this kit comes with. Let's take a look.

"We Wish You A Merry Christmas"

I started off with layers and paper punches around the edges. Then I inked and distressed the edges.

More Views:


 Now it's time to apply the gorgeous kit embellishments. The florals, metal doily, and wood chip star and flourishes.



I had fun creating a star then applying glass glitter pearl several times. This glitter is totally fantastic!

The kit comes with awesome twine that I applied at the top of the card.


Finally, I did some fussy cutting for the title and simply placed on top of the metal flourish. You can see how well the glass glitter pops out.

Well that's it for 2014! I had so much fun creating this card just to say "We Wish You A Merry Christmas." 

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to get your hands on this gorgeous kit and more products from the Frosted Design Store.
See you in 2015 and huggies!!!!!

Christmas Gift Ideas using Traditions Kit with Brandi!!!

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Hello there crafty friends!!!! It's Brandi popping in with a quick tutorial on a simple Christmas gift for the holidays!!!!

Here's a look at what I made using this month's "Traditions" kit:


Two very simple wall hangings using a variety of things from the kit!!!!
I started with a bare wood frame and painted it with my desired colors, then went over them with distress crackle paint for some shine!

I measured out my papers and added them to the wood:


I chose my pics, added them to the paper, then embellished with tid bits from the kit and flowers!!!

I cut the holly berry wood pieces and colored them with distress markers, then tucked them behind the flowers!

I fussy cut some of the sayings from the papers to add them as well!



I used the stamp included in the kit and some pigment ink to add the text directly to my photo:

I finished each piece with the twine from the kit using hot glue on the back!!

 And there you have it!!!!  Two Christmas gifts and plenty more left over :-)




Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
