More from Guest Designer, Becky Thackston!

Hi there...I hope you enjoy my projects today. I have had the best time creating with Creative Imaginations! I know you will too.

For this layout - Love - I used the following:


IOD Loolah polka dot paper

IOD Loolah Ladybug

IOD Loolah 12x12 Sticker Sheet

Twinking H2O's in Indian Copper, Coral Berry and Sunburst

IOD Epoxy sheet

misc chipboard letters, sticklers and red cardstock

I took the ladubug paper and cut around the flowers on both corners so that I could slip my picture behind the flowers. Then I was able to mat on the red cardstock and again on the red polka dot paper. Once I had everything adhered down I used the flowers and lady bugs from the sticker sheet and layered them over the picture and patterned paper. I coated the chipboard letters with three different colors of Twinking H2O's and then adhered to the layout. For finishing touches I added a few ladybugs with some pop up glue dots, doodling and sticklers.

 I have had these Harry Potter stamps forever! When I first saw this paper line I knew I had to have it and exactly what I was going to do with it. Now I can preserve my collector stamps and actually show them off instead of stashing them away under tons of papers never to be seen. For this layout I used:


Harry Potter Banner DS Paper

Harry Potter Scroll DS Paper

Harry Potter Faux Wax Seals

Harry Potter Owl Post

Harry Potter Sticker Sheet

Twinkling H2O's nutmeg

I inked the edges of the Scroll Paper and also added some nutmeg H2O's around the scroll part of the paper so that it would look more aged. The stamps and invite card were adhered down and then I was able to apply the stickers and wax seals around the stamps. Add a few journaling strips and some pen work and then you are done. A "non" picture layout :)

Welcome Guest Designer Becky Thackston

Hello Everyone my name is Becky Thackston and I am so excited to share some projects with you. I live in the current hot and sticky state...Georgia. There is nothing like the hot summers in the south. 
I work full time in the medical field and in my spare time I love anything craft related. Here is a little bit about me...


I LOVE anything and everything craft related. When I was a small child I would sit around and draw all the time. This followed me on into the teenager years. After I had my children, I was introduced to scrapbooking. That was 17 years ago and I haven't stopped yet. it is such a wonderful, creative outlet for me. Over the last few years I have added altered art, painting and quilting to the mix of fun crafts.

I also love dabbling with photography. I could never figure out how to work my camera on manual but set it on automatic and I can go to town taking pictures. I love grabbing those candid moments or super close ups of items that wouldn't normally get photographed. I even entered a few pictures into an art show a few years back. We introduced our first grandchild into our home earlier this year so she has now become my main focus with pictures. (my son is happy that someone else is getting their picture made)!

My scrapping style has changed so much over the years but I feel I have finally settled down into a style that works for me. 90% of my layouts will contain doodling and journaling strips. I've been told this is my signature style and to not change've been leaving it for now. Here is a sneak peak of a layout using Creative Imaginations and IOD.


Check back on Wednesday for more projects using the beautiful collectons by Creative Imaginations!

All you need is love....

Welcome back!  I am so glad you all stopped back by to see my last creation with the BE LOVED collection! 

When you give a girl some flowers, lace, ribbon, pearls, doilies, photos, and the BE LOVED collection....this is what happens...You end up with a vintage, feminine heart mini album, perfect for relationship album!

Oh boy, did I ever love making this one!   

DSC07554 DSC07557

 Yes, that is my Wedding photo from back in 1992.  I love seeing how different we are from then to now.  Pictures are so precious...they tell so much about how everything changes and grows.  Such an important part of life.  All of these photos have different memories to them which is what makes this book so very special to me.    

Thank you for letting me share these  albums with you the past couple days and all your kind comments.  Scrappy friends are so precious, I truly am blessed with all of the great friendships I have made over the years through this great hobby we all share such passion for! I hope you will all stop by my blog: For the Love of Art so that I can keep up with each and every one of you! 

Hugs to you all!

Sweet Summertime....

There is nothing better than the smell of the ocean breeze, picking up seashells, and riding the waves....Just the thought of it brings me to my favorite place...Watch Hill, Rhode Island....So peaceful, makes you forget all the stresses of daily life....No place I would rather be!

The OCEANA collection is just perfect for this little pocketbook album that I put together with my favorite pictures of the times we have spent at Watch Hill.  Of course, I had to add some sand dollars, seashells and some special trinkets I have collected from the many of visits we have had there. I think thats the best part of can always add your own embellishments that have special meaning to your project.  Here are a couple photos of this new treasure that I created:   


I really enjoyed working with this collection, it is super perfect for all those beach pictures we all take on our vacations!  

I am looking forward to sharing with you all the next mini album I made with the BE LOVED collection.  I hope you all stop back over to take a peek at it on Friday or you can visit me at my blog right here:For the Love of Art.....Until then...Happy Scrapping!

Mini Album with Summer Play Collection

Hi, Lynn here to share a super easy and fun mini album using the Signature Collection "Summer Play". As Eva mentioned earlier this collection is great for mini albums as the papers are divided into four six by six squares of coordinating summery patterns. I created this album with the young scrapbooker in mind. This would be a great project to do with a daughter, niece or any young crafter, especially as a summer project or at a crop. The cover was fun to create and easily decorated with the use of a few My Favorite Things Die-namics Dies....

Here are a few of the pages ...

Guest Designer--Meg Giroux

Hey there everyone!  Meg Giroux here.... 

I am so excited to be joining you for the next couple days!  Some of you may already know me but for all of you that I haven't met yet...Hello!!!  


A little bit about me: 

I live in good old Massachusetts, I met my Husband in 3rd grade...I used to chase him around on the playground and we went through school together. We didn't start dating till the end of Sophomore Year of High School back in 1986.  We have been married for 18 1/2 years now, we have a wonderful, sweet teenage Daughter,  a spoiled rotten chocolate lab and a crazy cat. I spend most of my time outdoors, hiking, biking, camping, and boating.  I have been scrapping since my Daughter was little back in 1998 when I attended a CM party at my Sister's house, and I have been hooked ever since! I have been very lucky to be on a couple Design Teams and teach cards classes at my LSS.  I try not to go a day with out something scrappy in my life, whether it is just following up on my DT work, reading a good inspirational scrap magazine, catching up on blogs or locking myself in my Scrap room to create!  I am so honored to be sharing my work with you here and getting to meet some new online friends!    

This week I will be sharing with you a couple things I have put together but for now, I will leave you with a little sneak peek of a card I made with the Be Loved collection ...

See you all this Wednesday for some more fun inspiration featuring the Oceana collection...Just in time for those Summer photos!

Everyone's A Winner

Hey there!! It's Tanisha here with an adorable project created with the Signature Collection Camp line.  As we all know, it's June, which means school is about to end.  If your children are anything like mine, then you will soon be bombarded with refrains of "I'm bored" and "I'm hungry".  Boy if I had a penny...

I have decided to make up some fun games and ideas for my boys to keep them busy and out of the boredom kingdom.  I created these adorable ribbons to award them for good behavior, etc...  Clever idea, right?  These were super easy to create, too!



1.  Punch 2- 1 1/2" x 6" strips, 2- 1" x 6" strips, and 2 circles from patterned papers.

2.  Score and fold the 2- 1 1/2" x 6" strips every 1/4".  Adhere both ends together. Press down to form a pleated circle and hold

3.  Adhere 1 circle to the front.

4.  Adhere the  2- 1" x 6" strips to the 2nd circle and then affix to the baco ot the pleated circle.

Optional:  punch decorative borders in the 2- 1 1/2" x 6" strips before pleating for a different look.

may arts blog hop: swim in the sea

Today is our final project and the last winner of our blog hop with May Arts! We hope you enjoyed the week as much as we did!  Today's winner is Kathy P That is NOT pleating gone nuts, that is FABULOUS! Love what you did on this card, every bit of it! I am hoping over from May Arts! Such a fun hook-up between these two companies, for sure!  Be sure to send me an email to with your address! 

hello! it's Jenn here... living on Cape Cod, I am constantly inspired by the ocean... still in LOVE with the luminarte stencils that Christine Adolph designed. When I opened my bag of may arts goodies..... one ribbon stood out at me, looking like seaweed, or coral... and it inspired my whole project!


I started with a 4x6 piece of white mat board, using the 12x12 oceana stencil I spread modeling paste through it and heat set it to dry. I then played with twinkling h2o's layering colors on my background. I also colored the may arts ribbon with the h2o's making it green. I used the twinkling H2o's to stencil my mermaid, and to add color in the back ground of my words. For the quote I used alphabet letters to stamp it out.
I used Tim's Tiny Attacher to attach my sinamay and ribbon. I used Claudine Hellmuth's matte medium to attach my words, mermaid and shells!

Hope you enjoyed this lil piece of art, remember to leave a comment for your chance at winning a prize from Creative Imaginations AND May Arts!!

May Arts Moments like this

Our first winner is Becky "What a beautiful wreath for your mom! i agree that moms need to be recognized throughout the year not just on one day. My mom would love this. Thanks for the inspiration!"

Keep posting and we will pull another winner on Friday! And then again on Monday from all the entries from this week!

Our next giveaway is for more of the gorgeous ribbons from May Arts and another package of our LuminArte Petite 5gram kit!


Luminarte Basic Rainbow Petite 5gr


Hi there, it's Eva here sharing a layout and a card made with gorgeous May Arts ribbons.  I have always been a fan, as you can use them in cards, layouts, minis, 3D art, and even in mixed media, so possibilites are endless, not to mention May Arts has such an amazing selection of all types of trims. 

First I have a pretty layout created with Samantha Walkers Blossom line.  I love the color scheme of these papers and the designs are super yummy, too.  I have had these pictures for a while and it was time to scrap them and add some yummy ribbon treats to them.  Here is what I came up with.

Moments like this

I created a little flower using the orange trim by stitching the bottom part of the ribbon and scrunching it up and added a Petaloo Mulberry Street color me flower in the middle of it.  You can see a close up of it, here.

Moments like this 3

And I pleated the holey pretty cream trim and added the green pretty ribbon pleated on top of that.  It just adds such beautiful dimension to it.

Moments like this 2

My second project is using the same Samantha Walker Blossom line and since May Arts has some really beautiful white trims as well, I decided to play with Luminarte, too.  I cut a piece of the ribbon long enough to make my flower and painted it with Luminarte Twinkling H2O Guatemalan color and I just pleated it to create a flower.  I also created another flower using the Creative Imaginations 12x12 white canvas sheet and My Favorite Things Rolled Rose Die-namics and painted it with the same Twinkling H2O and adhered it on top of the flower I made with the pretty May Arts ribbon.  The other way I used May Arts ribbon is that I cut a piece of the orange trim and using again My Favorite Things Jumbo Scallop Die-namics, I die cut the trim and used it as a border.  Here is what it looks like on my card.

You are too cute

And here is the list of the Creative Imaginations products I used along with the gorgeous May Arts ribbons.

#28224 Blossom Frame DS Paper

#28225 Blossom CS Sticker 12x12

#28227 Blossom Epoxy

#26372 Petite Twinkling H20 Guatemalan Green

Design team member, Tanisha Long used our Luminarte to color her ribbons and create a beautiful flower!


Hello blog friends! It's Tanisha here with a layout that I created for the May Arts/Creative Imaginations blog hop.  I used the Bloom Collection by Samantha Walker to highlight a photo of one of my favorite activities, taking pictures!!


As you can see here, I used a cream lace to frame the inner portion of the layout and an orange sheer ribbon to create a border through the center.  I created a handmade flower from one of the crinkle ribbons and then spritzed it with Key Lime and Autumn Leaf Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering mist so that it matched the layout.

What do you need to do? Just pop on each day to our blog and May Arts and post a comment we will be pulling some names this week to give away some prize packs to you our fans!

I really enjoyed using the May Arts ribbons.  These crinkle ribbons are so easy to use and fold easily into whatever shape I desired.  The colors are so pretty and they match what I used for my layout.

I had so many scraps left over from projects that I decided not to waste them so I cut leaves with my die cutting machine and made a wreath in honor of my Mom.  I figured why not honor Mom?  She deserves it everyday of my life and not just one day a year.

Cards with Summer Play collection

Hi there, it's Eva here today and I have two fun cards to share with you.  Both of them are made with the Signature Collection Summer Play line, which you can find in local or online Scrapbook Stores and some fun Unity Stamps.

What I love about these papers, that they are perfec to create cards or mini books with as they have four 6x6 size designs on each sheet and since I love creating cards these are perfect.  

Hang in there

My second card is using the paper as my focal point, as those owls are just too cute.  I cut out some clouds from the same sheet of paper using My Favorite Things Die-namics Dies and a sun from white card stock and painted it with Sunflower Twinkling H2O's.

So happy Together

Well, I sure hope you enjoy these little cards.  :)
