Turtley Awesome!

I have been dreaming about this set since I saw it in Studio before production... and yes I had to be very patient! I love to watercolor and these majestic turtles are begging to be colored! Top it off with a thick layer of Journey Glaze and swoon... I am in love!
This set has a matching die and it's in our newest caddie, Spring into Summer!
 I love the background... Color Splash sheets... best watercolor paper ever...and I used Cool Pool Splash,  Gold Shimmer Splash and Electric Lime Splash... mixed on very wet color splash sheet. You definitely need to set it aside to dry before using!

When Your Boss is Cardmaker...

Decorated by Cynthia, Michele & Antoinette
Photograph of Richard Garay, by Cathy Rogers... she was able to capture this as he walked in the office!

 Yes... it's a bit intimidating making a Birthday Card for my boss... he's a brilliant designer, a prolific and talented card-maker and he loves receiving home made cards! But you know ... I had to just bite the bullet and make one!
He loves Disney.. so that choice was easy!
So here's the Card I made! I used our Color Splash sheets for the background and embossed with gold the fireworks! Then sprinkeled on splashes and silks. I love our Magical Journey Collection!

Red Trucks

I was so excited to do some coloring this weekend, our Color Burst pencils are awesome and easy to use.  I am hosting a Birthday Card meet-up and I promised two girly cards and one masculine one! So I am sharing my masculine card! 
I grew up in Montana and when I was in middle school, this guy stored his old trucks on our land. He had Chevy's and Fords, orange ones and blues ones... I think I feel in love with trucks then. I loved the rounded cabs and the grill on the front and of course the red color... probably my most favorite of all! 
 So when this stamp set Hit the Road was released in the caddie back in June at convention, I knew it was going to be in my first order! Love the whole set!
Here's the finished card... don't you just love the black sparkle tape at the bottom... swoon! 
This pic is a close up to show off the shine our Journey Glaze gives the truck... almost looks real!
So keep on truckin my friend! Thanks for visiting my blog, I am a sporadic blogger lol but will get with it soon!

Love Buds & Candles

I started a Meet-up group and I want to share my love of paper crafting with the members. I want to mix things up and not just make cards, ...ya know since I am mainly a card maker lol. So for Valentines... I am planning a girls night out and we are going to combine love songs, stamping with candles, chocolate and roses... what more could a girl want!
RG has been showing us some awesome tips with our mixed media product so I decided to use some of his tips.  I followed his lead and took our love buds and added a little Journey Gesso to the top of them and mixed in some Pineapple Smoothie Splash... and let them dry. I also added a bit of Gold Silk as they dried to give them a slight glittery appearance.

The next step was to stamp on some tissue paper with Black Licorice and heat gun the image to the candle. I found these yellow candles at Ross, I thought the color might lend a more vintage look with the stamped image! The roses were glued on with our Craft Glue...which I love cause you can move stuff while it's wet and then they become unmovable once it dries!
Close-up on buds... they exceeded my expectations!
I am pretty happy with the results and hope the ladies that come to my meet-up group like the finished candle too! Happy Hearts Day!
You can find all the product I used here: Rose's Site

Leadership Retreat 2016

Wowsers! I am so excited to be at Leadership this year! I remember sitting in the audience at Convention thinking, "it's so not fair, I work for the company so there's no way I can be on Leadership" ... and then I was the last person announced! Whoo hoo!
I loved the whole three days and being so totally spoiled by our Company, our President and co-founder Richard & Gabby Garay!

The first night we had a lovely dinner ... and the decorations were spectacular!
Here are some photos from the first evening!

RG took all the leaders on tour of his house... the favorite room of course...his crafting room!

Don't you love our storage? Gabby stamped on all those tags and the tassels are from our Journey Days collection! YOU get a smaller container inside the large one shown here when you order! WOWsers!
All those that they are all ours...and yep the "R"s stand for Rose! lol
Such a gorgeous setting for us!
so pretty all the personalization
I love all the inspiration!
Our rooms were huge and amazing! Very close by too. Sadly I was too tired from all the fun to take advantage of the ginormous whirlpool tub... in my room!

A Little Plaid Fun

I love plaid... especially this time of the year, although in Phoenix there is not a lot of occasions for me to wear plaid and I so miss snuggling under blankets! So my challenge for this week is to create you own plaid... I used our printed paper, inked up our Fannel Life background stamp with Clear Pigment ink and stamped over the striped printed paper. I am so loving our amazing PanPastels ... I used the Limeade Splash pan and smoothed it over the printed paper... which created the most beautiful plaid.
The rest of the card just came together... love how it turned out!

Cardbase: Watermelon Fusion
Stamps: Among Nature, Holly Jolly,
Dies: Journey Ovals,
Ribbon: Limeade Splash Satin Ribbon
Inks: Dark Roast, Clear Pigment Ink, Gold Embossing Powder
Journey Color Burst Color Pencils
