New, Pretty Things.

I can not tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with what I've been creating lately. I've had so much fun playing and expanding my boundaries of what I thought I could do. Maybe it's just because I've been in a weird mood lately, or because of the meloncholy weather, but I hope this creative burst never ends. I'm in love with creating, and I never want that love to end. Maybe it's all the new things I've been buying lately... Spending money is good for the soul. Thank goodness for having a job, or I'd be in some serious trouble! Haha.

New Things

I made a quick video of opening my Papertrey Ink order that I just got yesterday. Something went a little wonky with the shipping notice system, so it totally surprised me when it arrived. Oh, the joy! Here's the video. (Sorry- I did it on my macbook, so the image is reversed. I was too lazy to get out my tripod!) Watch it over at youtube here.

One of my Two Peas orders also came in the past couple days, and in my possession are two of these little beauties in Apple Jack and Atmosphere. I can't stop spraying things!
New To Me Things

When Eyedea passed away last week, my boyfriend was really upset; Eyedea was his favorite rapper. Never having listened to him before, I thought I would just listen to see why Matt thought he was so amazing. Let me tell you... I'm in love. He's a freaking genius. I've been known to like rappers every so often (Eminem is one of my favorite artists in general), so this isn't completely out of left field. If you have the slightest interest in rap, I really encourage you to listen to this album (E & A by Eyedea & Abilities) in particular. His lyrics aren't degrading towards women at all, and he keeps the swearing to a minimum in favor of deep lyrics about the battles of everyday life and living with others in the world.

A New Studio Calico Layout

I said I was going to share some layouts I made last week today, but I guess I lied. Instead, I want to share this one I made last night for the Sunday Sketch challenge on the SC blog. I was a little excited to use my Mister Hueys :) Check it out:

 I love cascading embellishments. And misting. I heart this macro shot, too. :)

 No layout of mine would be complete without stitching. Period. Hehe.

Supplies: Kit- Studio Calico (On the Easel and Still Life), Cardstock- Bazzill (Kraft) and Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), Ink- Ranger (Spun Sugar Distress Ink), Font- Century, Punches- Stampin' Up! (Hearts and Stars) and Martha Stewart (Butterfly), Gems and Pearls- Hero Arts (Hero Hues in Blush), White Pen- Signo, Mister- Studio Calico (Apple Jack Mister Huey), Thread- DMC.

What's new in your life this week? Thanks for stopping by, you lovely, lovely ladies!

What a fun haul! I've never ordered from Papertrey, though I've wanted to for a while. One of these days! Their buttons and cardstock in particular really appeal to me. LOVE that new blueberry color. Can't wait to see what new creations you come up with!

What a gorgeous layout! Love the pink gingham and the green accents. So fun!

Hope you're having a great day, Brit!
