A little Bro Time at the Pumpkin Patch

October 1, 2017

I am sorry to be away for so long! School stated with so many demands that my time to create has been non-existent. I miss being able to share and visit all of your projects and sites.  I will be around soon to check what all  of you are doing.

But for now let’s get into this layout…..

I used an older Authentique Collection called Moonlit for all the papers. I love the little 3×4 cut aparts in this collection. The brighter colors pop with the papers. The little boy was too cute to pass up!

Pumpkin patch 2016

The spider web was a little flat so I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in black to give it dimension and shine.   Then finished the picture with some twine and Tim Holtz little halloween metal tags.

Look forward to seeing everyone’s posts about this years pumpkin patch visits and Fall decorations.  Let me know what you think in comments!

Until next time…


Nuvo Crystal Drops -New Obsession

February 2, 2017

Good Morning,

This is just a quick share on adding to my latest product obsession, Tonic Studio’s Nuvo Crystal Drops.  During the holiday season, Blitsy crafts had a  sale on these I couldn’t resist.  Here are my latest additions.



Left to right: Wedgewood Blue, Duck Egg Blue, Pale Gold, Violet Galaxy, Rhubarb Crumble


These are currently one of my favorite products, it is embellishment in a bottle. Now they are offering some with sparkles. I picked these up with the fanciful thoughts of finishing some mini albums before Christmas. The pale gold went nicely with the Graphic 45 Christmas collection. While that didn’t work out at least, I thought ahead for Valentine’s Day!

If you are not familiar with these little bottles of dimensional fun, they are the equivalent of enamel dots. They work on all kinds of projects and materials by offering a nice finishing touch. I have used them on a scrapbook page as a way to finish a die cut, such as our orange tree in this layout below. They are also nice to add that little something to add to a corner or empty spot.


Pictured drops are Ripened Pumpkin, Apple Green, and Buttermilk. The tree’s oranges are done with Ripened Pumpkin.


Anyways, I would love to hear from you any fellow “collectors” or enthusiast how you use them. This is a safe place if you would like to share about just your collection that is okay too. 🙂

Until next time.

*I am not compensated by Tonic Studios or Blitsy just sharing products I think would be enjoyed by my readers. 




Good Morning, Since March is designated as National Craft Month, I thought I would do another product share to bring everyone along on my journey  of trying new products and techniques. I recently had the pleasure to work with Tonic Studio’s Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in metallic gold while taking a mix media class. This is Tonic’s version …
