Hello and welcome to Creative Scrapbooker Magazine’s Tuesday with the Team feature. I am Jayme Loge and I am so excited to show you what I have been up to! Starting with the Summer 2019 issue, the magazine is publishing a new ongoing article called “Planners Gonna Plan”, researched and written by yours truly. I’ve had a lot of fun diving into the world of planners so I can share with readers and I am learning a lot of great organizational tips too!
I was given the opportunity to play with some new American Crafts ‘Kelly Creates’ products. I love the marker sets! If you know me personally, you know what a funny thing that is for me to say. I have such a love/hate relationship with coloring; I do enjoy it and find it relaxing, but I don’t have the time to really invest in developing my craft and it is really quite precise for my admittedly messy style. But when I noted that these markers were water soluble, my brain got excited! I could color and be messy at the same time! I really love that I can spritz my paper with water and watch the magic happen! I love that I can use water to blend colors and lighten tones! When I got my hands on the beautiful ‘Kelly Creates’ stickers, my first thought was how easily they would lend themselves into quick card building, and that is just what I did! Because I wanted to keep them quick, I looked on Pinterest for images I thought I could draw, and just had so much fun! I made sure I used a waterproof pen, and then just had lots of fun trying out different images and stickers. Supplies used: American Crafts Kelly Creates brush tip and metallic markers, stickers, and washi tape; Magenta Nuance Powders; Sharpie fine tip black marker.
I also worked in a ‘Kelly Creates’ bullet journal, with whole empty pages to fill up with creativity and organization. I immediately thought of using one of my beautiful stamps from ‘Stampendous’, I stamped using waterproof ink, then colored the image with the brush tip markers. A quick brush with some water, and it looks like I am a blending pro! Just a note- the stencils and masks that ‘Stampendous’ provides with their images are the best. It is so easy to create a layered image! Supplies used: American Crafts Kelly Creates brush tip and fine line markers, bullet journal, and stickers; Stampendous stamps; Ranger Archival ink.
Because I live in a part-time circus, my very old cat came to the photo shoot. She has reached the age that she basically gets to do whatever she wants because no one has the heart to argue with the grandma cat. She smells a bit and is kind of yelly, but she is loved and rules the roost. Since she inserted herself into the photo area, you get to enjoy a gratuitous photo of old Lucy!
Thanks for joining me today, and happy creating!
