Technique Tuesday February Studio AE & SMASH

It is the last day of February and I have really enjoyed being a guest designer for Technique Tuesday and the Studio AE Stamp set for February.  photo file_zpsd5ee9b4f.jpg
 So earlier this month, I had a night where I just didn't want to think about what I needed to create.
I just wanted to create. Do you ever feel this way?
Many times that is when I turn to my SMASH journal. I can use a few pieces of leftover patterned paper and a few embellishments and just MAKE SOMETHING.
I loved using the Studio AE stamps with my journaling.  photo file_zps6e4d44cb.jpg
 They are not perfect, but neither am I!
 I love how it turned out. Using the stamps really added to the feel of the SMASH page.
 Have you SMASHed lately?
 It is good for the creative soul.
The stamps are still available from Technique Tuesday HERE.
Thank you TT, for inviting me guest design this month!

Melissa Frances & CKC Portland

I really miss watching Ella dance on stage. She has grace and sass when she is on the dance floor. Since we moved to Texas, we have not found a dance studio for her. After looking through these pictures, I can tell it is definitely something she loves. Looks like I need to get her back to dancing very soon!

I made a few new samples for the Melissa Frances booth this month.
This is one of my favorites.
I am excited for the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Portland at the end of March. We have made a few changes to the Melissa Frances booth. We added a demo table and lots more room to sell products!
Melissa Frances is sponsoring several classes that I am teaching in Portland.  If you would like more information, check out the Creating Keepsakes Convention site. See you in Portland!

I love this picture taken last summer at my sister's wedding. I have been saving it for the perfect project. I love how the Studio AE stamps add to the emotion of the picture. These two cousins, are inseparable whenever they are together.

I also love using Technique Tuesday Story Card's for layering on my scrapbook layouts.  On this layout, I used one to overlap with some of the phrases from the stamp set. The phrases from the stamps combined with this story cards are perfect for journaling opportunities.

Here is the list of bloggers that are participating in this month's blog hop. Make sure to check out each one's creative projects made with this Studio AE stamp set.

Creative Photo Organization

 photo file_zpse94ed4a9.jpg

After I recently reorganized by craft supplies, I realized that I work well with things organized by theme. So I decided to tackle by printed photos.  Here is how it all turned out. You can read about it on the Fiskars website.

I enjoyed the organizing process and sorting through all my printed photos. I also had my 'creative fix' by embellishing the cover for each of the 4x6 clear boxes.
