Let's Go Camping

Here is the latest for my Etsy store, Heartspeak. Summer is coming and I was inspired by this camping paper and embellishments from American Crafts Campy Trails collection. The journaling blocks are from October Afternoon's Campfire set but happened to match perfectly. I love the colors, and that it's not too over-the-top cute. This one has great journaling space to jot down a few memories as well. The chipboard tree below is actually from an old set of Cosmo Cricket "Blackboard" pieces that I covered with papers from the camping set. I love the way it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

Celebrate the 4th!

I made this cute little album for my Etsy store, Heartspeak, this weekend. I'm trying to get a few more patriotic albums out in the next week or two for the upcoming holiday. I just love how festive this paper is. Sometimes you can do a simple album when the paper is this colorful. I especially like the chipboard pieces on the cover -- my latest favorite technique. I basically run the chipboard piece on an ink pad and use clear embossing powder to heat to a shine. My favorite ink colors are from Tim Holtz, which is what these were. Thanks for looking!
