Mosh Posh is looking for an Experienced Graphic Designer.

Please click here for more details

Some cards made with the October Kit......

I made these cards using the October Kit...the colors were so beautiful as were the stamps. For this card I used the stamp across the card and then cut the butterflies out of the pattern paper and adhered with a 3-D pop up. I also used my border bunch to punch a piece of the pattern paper and adhered it to the bottom of the card. I loved the twisty ribbon that came in the kit too!
For this one I cut a shape out of the pattern paper, adhered a butterfly and love that maya road clear ribbon with the black design - again so pretty with these colors.

I am not a card maker...12x12 layouts and minis are more my style...but with this kit and the beautiful colors and products.....it was so easy!!
Also, check out the Mosh Posh Site for the November Kit....it's wonderful and you are going to love it!!

Just a Peek

Seeing as my webisode has been a bit delayed due to technical difficulties. I thought I would share a sneak peek of my scrap room today. Before my hubby built my first scrap room, I spent countless hours researching others' rooms for ideas. By the time it was time to complete mine, I had it all figured out. We recently moved and we had to set up a new scrap room which we designed and put together in no time.

I know one embellishment that we all have that can be a bit tricky to organize...ribbon. If I have a ton of one manufacturer, I tend to organize my product that way. You'll see in the second picture, I've left those brands on the spools and put them in drawers from ikea. They're the Kassett (white) ones. For everything else I've taken the ribbon from the spools or cards and wound them on ribbon cards from Magistical Memories (the chipboard people). I do this by the color wheel from pink to red to orange through purple to browns, blacks, and multis. The card come in many sizes for different widths of ribbon. I purchased the 1/2", 3/4", and 1". The boxes (orange) that I use to store the cards are from Target's One Spot years ago. Cropper Hopper makes similar ones that would be perfect.
Hope you got some ideas for organizing YOUR ribbon stash. Talk to you soon with some more from my Scrap Room.

October 2008 Sketch

I decided to create a simple sketch so everyone could have lots of options. And since I like to include more than one photo on a layout, I used 3 picture blocks, each one measuring 3x3. My example is titled Cheese. I used one of the Maya Road stamps to frame my journaling block, and I changed the placement of the title and the paper strip. For more examples check out the Mosh Posh Gallery under liftable layouts.

Showing Detail

I love the little Maya Road butterfly chipboard album that comes in October's kit!

When I first pulled it out, I immediately noticed the detail on the butterfly that makes up the front cover. I wanted to alter it in a way where that detail would be visible.

Obviously covering it with paper was not an option. I could leave it natural but how much fun is that??!

I decided to paint it, drawing out the depth and contour of the butterfly.

For my paint, I chose a tapioca color. I gave it two coats.

Once the coats were dry, I took a sanding file and lightly when over the edges and across the top. This sanded off some of the paint on the outline, leaving the inside part of the butterfly in tact.

The dimension effect this gave was wonderful.

I hope you have time this week to get out your paints and play. Be sure to share your creations with us on-line at Mosh Posh!

I Told You I Was Giddy

Several posts ago, I mentioned that I had this wee problem with Basic Grey's patterned papers. Well, that's a good thing because October's Mosh Posh kit(now available) was chock full of it. In addition to the projects that I posted in the gallery I made quite a few other things with the super amazing Ambrosia line. Thought I would share some other ideas for using YOUR Ambrosia papers.

This first page practically made itself. The Ambrosia papers just scream look at me. Those diecut papers that you know we've all bought and hoarded are just perfect to display these patterns. All you need is a pencil and a good pair of tiny scissors. Just add a few pieces of the BG paper and some embellies. Voila.

I also made this miniBook using half of a 7Gypsies accordion album (from an older mosh posh kit) and some ClearScraps acrylics (you know the one's Ali E. is using). I had too much fun putting it together. Can you tell this is my favorite season? The BG Ambrosia papers are PERFECT for your pumpkin patch papers. Take a look.

Hope you enjoyed a peek at a couple of my ideas for the lovely fall season using some of the new BG papers. Until next time.
