Squash Book with Autumn's Gifts and More!

Hi! It's Beverly, aka Artsystamper.

It's time for the  23rd challenge at the Artsystamper Digitals Challenge Blog
The theme is 
Ribbons and Bows
(must use a bow or ribbon)
The talented design team has created some creative inspiration projects, so be sure to check them out.
This Squash Book was created with 4 of the digital sets in from my Etsy Shop:
Just print and go with the Print and Go Sheets, and print out the papers. 

Squash Books are not a new thing, but what is?  Once I started putting this little Fall book together, I added set upon set of digitals and they all worked together so beautifully!
 If you don't know, a squash book is created by folding and attaching three pieces of 12 x 12 ( or any square size you like) card stock together, and then the fun begins when  you start the decorating.

Once it's decorated, you can add whatever you like. I will be adding Autumn recipes to this one, as a gift to my granddaughter, Lily. She enjoys cooking.

It closes up into a tidy package, to be saved a keepsake album.


In order to have a chance to win this set or your choice of a digital set of your choice at TheArtsystamperShop on Etsy, enter this challenge! Become a part of The Artsystamper Addiction on Facebook, and you will find yourself with free images from time to time, as well as videos and a place to add your projects. Why not join in the fun? 

Enjoy the journey my friend,

aka Artsystamper

Vintage Mum for Joy of Sets Design Team


Yay! I am now a member of the Joy Of Sets Design Team!
This time around the Tic Tac Toe is:
This is a really FUN challenge! Last month I was a Guest Designer
Challenges, yes.  Really good ones. They make you THINK, and also get you using your STASH. You may also use METHODS you have not used in awhile, or never before! Check it out to see more inspiration by the DT.

I decided to use the last column of the Tic Tac Toe for this challenge: "Layers, Blending and Gems". I made a bunch of cards when I took my Fall Flowers Kit with me on a trip. I have a video about it, and this card was nearly finished in the video. I added some gems from my stash, and used a piece of bark I found camping to show off the card in my picture above.
  
RV-ing is my new passion! I will be combining it in my videos with my creations...stamping, drawing, painting and collage, not to mention journals...I know, it's a lot, but it's OK to do a variety of things!

So watch the video, and  please visit my Etsy shop

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Enjoy YOUR creative journey,

Make a Wish with Crafts Galore Encore

No photo description available.

Hello!
It's time for another challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore. This time our wonderful sponsor is
Image may contain: text that says 'Beccy's the store Place'

She is offering a $10AU voucher to her shop as a prize to the random winner of this challenge.

I was honored to choose the adorable cupcake image from her, "Make A Wish" digital stamp set.

After printing out the cupcake on regular white card stock, I colored it with Prismacolor Markers, and shaded it with Prismacolor Premier Pencils. I used my old Coluzzle to cut a circle out of the card stock, which created a place to create a candle "glow" using Distress Oxide inks. I found a piece of background paper and card stock from my stash, inked the edges of the patterned paper with Distress Oxide Ink and layered them. 
The card base is A2 size. However, I took the artistic liberty to put my elements off the edges.

 After all, how many cards have I seen with TONS of stuff hanging off of them? Guess this card will need a larger envelope!
The sentiment is also from the stamp set. I punched the top of the senti with a notebook punch, and layered onto a scrap of cs that I again found in my stash.

The final touch was some Nuvo Glitter Drops on the flame and candies.
I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:



Please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs. 


We'd love to see your creations.
Remember the challenge is always 'Anything Goes' and so you can create any type of project - it doesn't have to be a card and you can enter up to 3 times.

That's all for now...have FUN!

Sidewalk Pumpkin - Williamsburg


This pandemic has certainly created some changes in our lives. People have lost loved ones, (not particularly from Covid 19), moved, taken  new  routes, grown closer or further apart, and tried to get on with their lives. 

I feel like in many ways, we have realized what is truly important to us.

George and I have toyed with the idea of an RV for several years. It wasn't until we realized we wanted to spend the remainder of our years enjoying adventures together, along with the need to spend more time with family far away, that we settled on a Jayco Travel Trailer.
I thought it would be fun to tie my creativity into the journeys.

 George would end up leaving me in the dust as I would stop and snap pictures with my phone. 
I am hoping this turns out to be an adventure in creativity as well as a time for us to spend most of our time together, and with our cats, Nick and JJ.


I matched the papers up with one of my newer sets, A Bunny's Harvest.
