Curtain Call Reminder

wishingyoumaureenplut

There is still time to join us for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Tropical Trip!  You have until August 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

When I made my card for this challenge, I had some extra embossing paste so I made this sweet little tag as well :)  My PTI circle scribbles dies arrived and I love tucking them behind a sentiment :)  The vellum leaves were die cut with Verve’s Sprightly Sprigs Die Set .  This fabulous idea came from Debby Hughes :)  Head over to the Curtain Call Inspiration blog for more samples and then join in the fun if you haven’t already :)  Have a great day!

Teachers Make Little Ones Count

littleonescountmaureenplut

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with a fun card inspired by the current Viva La Verve sketch and inspiration photo. 

VLVAug14Week3SketchVLVAug14Week3Inspo

I can’t resist anything chalkboard! LOL  I had this frame cut from ABC chalkboard paper in my little (read BIG) scrap pile and thought it was the perfect time to bring it out!  It was a no brainer that I’d be using Verve’s Teachers Count and matching Apples Die Set

Want to win some Verve bucks?  Head over to the Viva La Verve blog for all the details and then join in the fun!  Thanks for visiting!

You Are Just 2 Sweet!

2sweetmaureenplut

Hi everyone!  It’s kind of serendipitous that the current PTI Make it Monday has to do with embossing paste!  My newfound love of mixed media means that I have already been playing around with it!  I added some pink and teal ink to a couple of batches, hoping for an ombre look, but it didn’t quite turn out.

Good thing I decided to use the left over paste to make some other pieces.  The tag won out when I went to make a card and then I turned all the other heart designs into tags too! LOL  When in doubt, make a tag!  I’m also using an older but brand new to me PTI stamp set.  I finally got it!  I love the use of numbers in this Tagged Sentiment set. Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

lifesadventuremaureenplut

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

I’ve been dabbling in and learning about mixed media and art journaling this summer!  I thought I’d start on a smaller canvas in the form of a card front.  I used some Dylusions sprays and some stencils to create my background inspired by the colours and numbers in the photo.  I added an arrow paper clip and a “travel” inspired quote that I cut up into individual panels.

Festive Friday Guest Designer

merrylittlechristmasmaureenplut

Hi friends!  I have the honour of guest designer along with the fabulous Festive Friday DT this week!  Look at the yummy picture I got to work with…

festivefridayaug14

Hmmm, what was I inspired by?  What WASN’T I inspired by might be the better question!  I felt the photo had a rustic feel to it and I noticed those little balls on the twine which reminded me of my rusty bells! YIKES!  Loved the neutral colours, wood (translated to cork for me), and snowflakes.  My sentiment is actually some little chalkboard stickers I picked up at Michaels at Christmas. Love them!

I hope you’ll head over to the Festive Friday Challenge Blog and join in the fun!  The challenge lasts for 2 weeks so you’ll have until August 27th at midnight to link up your card.  Thanks for stopping by!

CASE Study’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!

CASEstudyMaureenPlut

Hi there! Today I’m excited to be joining CASE Study as they celebrate their 4th Anniversary all month long. I had such a fabulous time on their Design Team which I sadly had to step down from when I started my Masters last fall.  However, I was thrilled when the lovely and talented Chupa asked me back to celebrate with such an amazing line up of designers, past Muses, past DT members and current DT members.

4thanniversary

The theme of the hop is “inspiration”. I found this gorgeous card awhile back on Pinterest and put it straight onto my “cards” board.  The card is by Lisa Spangler and you can see it HERE.  Ah, chalkboard and a super fun banner!  How could I not be inspired?
