Layouts for September

Not the best pics even touched up but here they are. I'm using a free program call Fotor to resize and adjust but I don't know if it's me/the camera, the program, or both.

Watercolor fall card

I'm going to repeat what I said in my previous post. LOL  I love this little girl from My Favorite Things. It's the only MFT stamp I have and would love to have more, they have adorable stamps! I was so happy when I got my hands on this as fall is my favorite time of year and I love pumpkins, and as I said, I love the little girl.

I created this card for the MFT card design challenge. This one is for coloring virtuoso. I know there are way more talented people out there than I am with all kinds of coloring medium. But I decided to give it a try anyway and since I only have one stamp set I wanted to be sure I made it different - from a different skin tone to a different coloring medium. I created the background myself as only MFT products can be used. I don't expect to be chosen by judging (see comment about talent LOL) but maybe I'll get lucky enough to be a random winner. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! 


Clean and simple fall card

I love this little girl from My Favorite Things. It's the only MFT stamp I have and would love to have more, they have adorable stamps! I was so happy when I got my hands on this as fall is my favorite time of year and I love pumpkins, and as I said, I love the little girl.

I created this card for the MFT card design challenge. This one is for clean and simple. I used colored pencils and drew in lines to create a plaid dress. I'm not used to creating different skin tones but I gave it a try and I think I did a pretty good job, hope you think so, too!

layouts for August

I'm still working out how to edit my photos. I found a free online editor I could download (don't want anything cloud-based) but it doesn't let me quite do what I want/need to like my old Adobe. I ended up using MS Paint after doing my photo editing to go over the parts I don't share online. I could use circles over faces when I take the photos, but putting something over names is more of a pain. The editor also wouldn't let me save back to my SD card, I had to save them to my computer.

Class pictures

I'm on a new computer so I don't have my photoshop (which is super old) to fix up my photos so I'm figuring out how to do it. I tried paint at first (wish I could smudge and blur instead of paint over things I want to not show) so that's why all the markings. Then I tried to see if I could improve the brightness and stuff when I saw you can do it with the photo thing microsoft has. Next time I'm going to try and see if I can do it all with photo. I'm not even sure it automatically saved/replaced the other photo - they don't look much better.

Fall/Thanksgiving cards

A bunch of cards I made in 2016 I never got around to posting to my blog. Some I like more than others but I was trying to make a bunch of different ones in a small amount of time and even simple designs I'm not very quick with.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



Punny cards

Here's a couple cards I made awhile back and didn't get around to posting. It took me a bit to figure out how to do the pop-up and make the chair but I worked it out and i think it came out pretty good!

My scrap room

Ok, over a year and a half later I'm finally uploading the pics of my room. These are how it originally looked, there's been some small changes since. I may do an updated room post this fall. It's in desperate need of a clean up which is a bit of a challenge right now. This was my daughter's room and I took it over after her first year of college since at least 7 1/2 months of the year it wasn't really being used. During her time at home she uses an air mattress on the floor. The small closet is still all hers and she still has her bookshelf in a corner of the room you can't see. (you can just barely see a corner of it in the last pic next to the window.)

The photos start with an overall view and then go around the room counter clockwise. I painted all the white pieces to 'match'. I kept my sewing table original and painted the small bookshelf brown. I think having the few dark pieces helps ground it all. (my daughter's bookshelf was already painted brown, I got the same color to do mine.)  The big pink unicorn helps keep the cat from jumping up on top of those baskets up there.


You can see the post about my paper storage acquisition here: http://kaleidoscopecreations.blogspot.com/2018/03/paper-storage.html  My hutch was created from an old dresser and old bookshelf painted to go together and match the other pieces.

House Mouse cards

I've got quite the collection of adorable House Mouse stamps now. Here's a couple of cards I made months ago but didn't get around to uploading.
