Hi everyone!  It's great to be back with a new project for Wild Whisper this month AND a new paper collection "City Lights"!  This week's creation was inspired by all the flowers and beautiful gardens that I am seeing everywhere. I chose to use a photo of my front yard for the layout.  About 4 years ago I removed all the grass in the front and planted shrubs and flowers instead.  I have never regretted it!  I love all the colour and variety and the birds and squirrels seem to too!   I sat and did a lot of fussy...

Hi everyone, Today I'm going to show you how I played with the largest stamp from the Floral stamp set and created 3 cards with all the same materials, but still ended up with a different look on each card. I was able to create a different look, by placing the stamp differently on each card. I used the above piece of patterned paper from the Floral collection for the card base, and coloured the roses with Copic markers.  Copics used were:  Flowers:  E00, E01, E02, E95, E99   Leaves:  G20, G82   To colour the roses I used a very simple colouring style.  On...

Hi everyone!  Around this time of year, I find myself yearning for spring.  The winters here are long and quiet, with most of the birds having left to go south, to warmer climates.  So I thought I'd make myself happy scrapping some memories of spring weather, and at the same time, show you that the Life Isn't Perfect collection can also be used for happy layouts!   I chose the background paper because it had a happy feel to me, it tied in with all the water in my photos, and the colours remind me of spring here in Alberta....

One of the things that I really love about Wild Whisper collections is that, while they always have a fun theme, they are versatile enough to scrap any thing you want, and combine with other collections that you have in your stash!  I thought this week that I would use the Farmhouse collection to scrap an entirely non-farm photo. I started by looking through my leftover papers, ephemera, and cards to pick out anything that didn't have a farm theme to it.  There is so much!  I decided to use the sunset card and find a picture that would work...

Hello, Jenn here with the new July collection Lake Life.  It's gorgeous if I do say so myself :)  I grew up in Ontario, lived on a lake, swam in the lake, played by the lake, and definitely enjoyed the lake life, so I couldn't wait to dig into this collection!!! Since I'm still working away on my trip album, I pulled out the lake photos I have from our visit to Kingston, Ontario, and Lake Ontario Park.  With white cardstock for my background, I decided to do some splatters and smooshing with mists and watercolours to mimic the waves...
