Friday Challenge - Direction!

Friday, January 30, 2015

Hello, it's Joni Parker, in Sunny Warm Phoenix Arizona (sorry to rub it in for those of you in the cold, but this is the best time of year for us!!).

For this week's challenge, we are going to have you answer this question....What Direction?

Your project needs to have something indicating direction.  You can go literal and use arrows or get wordy and use directional words:  East, West, Up, Down, Over, Under, Left, get the idea.  You can even get a little creative and use a compass or weather vane....  You can interpret this any way you want, but be sure to explain it in your blog post if it's not really obvious!

For my layout, I used the word Under...and it doesn't even have anything to do with an actual direction!!!
When we visited the Treasure Island Casino in Las Vegas to see the "Pirate Show" we were surprised to find it "Under Construction".....this photo was my 10 year old son's reaction to what we found!


Products used:
Paper, ribbon and wood pieces from Forever Yours Kit
Sticker from We Are Family Kit
Ranger Acrylic Paint Dauber - Juniper

Elle's Studio - Love You More Wood Veneers

Friday Challenge Team….

Hi! I'm Barb and I am the owner here at Frosted Designs! I have been scrapbooking for nearly 25 years now! Wow! That is a long time! I think the coolest thing about this hobby is how I get to meet people from all over the world! I also like that I am telling my kid's stories so that they can share them with their kids some day. And with 4 kids… there are a lot of stories to tell!!

I live in sunny Greece with my husband and my little girls who are my inspiration...I have been scrapping for about three years and I love the dirty mess of my mixed media LOs...Sometimes,although, I need a break and try some CAS pages but mixed media has stolen my heart!

Hi Everyone!!!!I live in Brazil a beautiful country ,I am lawyer but my passion is cooking so I have a small job doing special food,I made diet food, fitness food , detox food and I also cooking only with organics aliments.I have been scrapping for 10 years, but I discoverd when I was foreign exchange student in USA in 1981my american mother doing so many wonderful job in scrap.I love to made all my flowers,,,I am crazy about that,

Hi there I live at the coast in North Wales, Uk, with my motorbike crazy husband and scruffy old hound. The children flew the nest several years ago, so I now have more free time to be creative. I love getting inky, mixed media, scrapbooking and on a clean note, feltmaking 

Hello! I live in Seoul, Korea with my father, mother and an older brother. I am seeking a unique and vintage mixed media. To express the feeling, I have used many materials and made various attempts.
I am continuously seeking inspiration, making an effort to share it, teaching students every day and making works.

My name is Joni Parker and I live in Phoenix, Arizona with my husband of 22 years and our 11 year old son, Joseph (my "subject" matter for most layouts). I started scrapbooking about 13 years ago and I'm am really glad I was already "in the groove" when he was born. (I didn't miss any photos or stories!) I also make cards and some altered projects, but my true love is telling stories and capturing memories on paper and the big bonus is that I am allowed to do that while getting messy and creative....that's a win-win in my book!!

 Hi! My name is Julie Tucker-Wolek and I have been scrapping since my son was born 17 years ago, but really got into it as a major passion about 8 years ago when my daughter was born. I create everything! Cards, layouts and altered projects!

Hi everyone! I live in sunny Texas with my hubby and two adorable Boston Terriers. My three children are grown and scattered to wind. I started scrapbooking over twelve years ago! My style is ever changing and evolving with a new love for mixed media.

Hi guys and gals! I'm a little town girl married to a big city boy. We live in West Texas and have four very active kids. I'm an Investment Advisor by day and a paper-cutting, ribbon-tying, dye-spraying, edge-distressing, paper-crafter by night. This hobby keeps the balance in our house and keeps mamma happy....and we all know what they say "if mamma aint happy...". I'm super excited about joining the Frosted Designs Design Team and look forward to getting started!

I have been scrapping for over 17 years. I love paper and can never have enough of it!! I aim to have my photos be the focus of each scrapbook page, and I love to share my stories on each page. I love to create 2 page layouts as well as canvases and gifts.

Hello! I live in Ontario, Canada. I'm am avid photographer where my favourite subjects are my two daughters. I've been a scrapbooker for about 12 years, a card maker for about 8 years and a project life junkie about 3 years! I'm fortunate enough to be able to be a paper crafter full time. My go to products are stamps, dies and stitching.

Hello! I am blessed to be a stay-at home, high-school homeschool scrapbooking momma/grandma from Texas. I have been scrapping for about 14 years now and enjoy creating a wide variety of projects. As a momma of five girls and a brand new grandaughter, I have plenty of girly inspiration to drive my passion. I am a proud Navy mom of two active duty sailors and one veteran. I love to read and hang out with my family in my free time.

I'm a Mixed Media Artist, Scrapbooker (paper and digital) and Soap Maker from Utah. I will try ANY and EVERY craft that tickles my fancy. I hope to retire soon and move back to the east coast of Florida. I look forward to spending more time with my kids, lots of time at the beach, and way more time CREATING.

Please take a minute to congratulate these ladies for joining our team! 
And stop back tomorrow to see the BIG DESIGN TEAM REVEAL and challenge! 

Frosted Designs Kit Team:

Hello there fellow scrappers!!! My name is Brandi Matos and I am just another obsessed crafter with a bad habit for paper crafting! I only started into this hobby about three years ago now but have found that this is my TRUE passion! I thoroughly enjoy crafting and put my all into each and every project!!!

I am currently a stay-at-home mother of two beautiful girls, and wife to the world's most amazing husband (Really… he is!!!). We live in sunny Tampa, Florida with most of our family close by. I spend much of my time doing paper crafts and wouldn't have it any other way! I love making scrapbook layouts and cards, as well as altered projects and mixed media work. As this is all still very new to me, I enjoy trying all kinds of techniques, both new and old. I don't really have a set 'style’… I just do what I think looks good :-)

Hi! Everyone. I live in Akwesasne where my husband and I are raising our Family. I am a Child Care Supervisor by day and Avid scrapper by night. I love everything about paper crafting. My go to items are masks, molding paste,flowers and lace.

Hi there! My Name is Rachelle and I live in Toledo, Ohio. I have 2 grown sons and 2 grandchildren. I spend my days wheelchair bound and working on creating many genres of art which all started in 2008. I love creating layouts, cards, mixed media, tags, and the most recent is coloring digi images with alcohol markers. All of it is the best therapy. My greatest strength is paying attention to details and taking the viewer on a visual journey of inspiration. Here I am on the kit team and I love working with the array of elements.I simply love to create, and inspire.

Mixed Media Team….

Hi I am Tamiko, I believe all things are possible with paper and good scissors. Add quality adhesive and things to write, draw and/or color with and BOOYAH... We are having ourselves nothing but pure JOY and EXCITEMENT! I do a little bit of everything (smile), although my concentration as of lately has been towards card making, mixed media and art journaling. I am also a social media junky.. if there is an app. out there.. I've heard of it.. possibly used it or have had an account for it.


Forever Yours Mixed Media Canvas

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Hi there FD friends! Rachelle here today sharing my latest mixed media canvas using this month's gorgeous kit, "Forever Yours." This kit has an array of such beautiful cardstock and embellishments. So take a look!


This 6x6 canvas comes with the kit.
I used greens and pinks on the texture background.
I always love to use the beautiful embellishments such as the Prima cork stickers and Fabscraps chipboard bicycle.


I found this pretty quote about riding a bicycle. It was perfect!

I so loved the beautiful Petaloo florals, metal gears, and Brilliance Dew Drop- Pearlescent Orchid ink. The ink richly applies so easily.

Finally, here is another close-up of some of the beautiful decorative elements in the kit. I loved working with the gorgeous Marion Smith Paper Collection.

Well that's it for now. Be sure to get this fantastic kit before they are all gone at the Frosted Design Store! 
Thank you so much for stopping by today. See Ya Soon & Huggies!!!

"Dream Card" with Brandi!

Hello again friends!!!!  I'm here today with a card I made using this month's beautiful Forever Yours Kit from Frosted Designs!!!

Here's a look at the kit:

The colors are truly amazing and the papers and embellies all go together so well!!!  
Here is my card:


These papers are "dreamy" indeed!!!!  I used a variety of papers from the kit to create my "base", then started adding on my desired embellishments!

The grossgrain trim in the kit goes beautifully with everything, doesn't it?!?

I finished my card with a stamped sentiment from my stash and a black card base!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)


A Forever Yours Canvas with Connie!

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Connie Here. I have a Canvas I wanted to share created with the January Kit *Forever Yours*.  This kit is GORGEOUS.  Part of the kit is a little 6 x 6 canvas. A little canvas with Big possibilities. 

First I used the black tissue paper that the kit was wrapped in. I used black gesso and completely covered the canvas.  It added a nice ripple effect.
Here are some close ups.
I used the Tim Holtz Doily stencil from We are Family Kit.
I brushed the Ink from the kit over the molding paste.
I used a star punch and created a rustic star with scraps from the collection.
I fussy cut the chevron paper and added strips.
Flower and star cluster
Side view. I added the cork embellishments and doily from the kit.
The fussy cut pieces from the paper fold over the sides and a ribbon is added around the outside of the canvas.
I Tucked embellishments here and there. The picture is a wallet sized Family Photo. My Family and my sister's Family. This canvas will sit on my desk at work. 
Thanks for looking. If you would like to own this kit you can get it at Frosted Designs Store.
