Too Much fun with Julie Nutting Dolls

 So go create. 
Take photographs in the wood, 
run alone in the rain and sing your heart out high up on a mountain
where no one will ever hear
and your very existence will be the most hypnotising scar.
Make your life be your art
and you will never be forgotten.” 
― Charlotte Eriksson

We had our free crop last Sunday and again, Julie Nutting Dolls are the easiest thing for me to create at a crop... a  6x6 paper pad, some tags,  lots of  flowers and  a few diecuts I am in  doll heaven.  
I loved the  new  6x6 paper pack Belle Vie and knew  it was calling me to play, and play I did. 

Three dolls, three tags, a well spent Sunday afternoon. 

It was like an assembly line,  first was dressing the dolls, then the tags, then my favorite part embellishing the tags, all using the  Belle Vie  6x6 paper pad ...

Have  some paper doll fun and get creating! 

(all of my dolls are layered with cardboard in between  - pop dots will cause a wave  sooner than later and unless you  use glue, they will come off ... and shh cardboard is free!!)

Pixie Glen (Mini) Album

“Capture the moment. It is your only sacred-memory.” 

Its  done ... its  really done .... This  was a task doing an  8.5 x 11 not  so mini album! 
Going  through  some old paper collections that I  had, and it  was time to stop hoarding and to use, so that is what  I did. Pixie Glen, by Prima,  designed by Jodie Lee was my most favorite Prima collection of all time. The  colors, the design just  up my creative alley.

There are so many flips and folds and thios album will hold  over 100 pictures, with lots of spaces for  4x6 pictures, which is  why  I wanted to create something  unique. 

I hope that this  inspires you to create today, or  try your own mini album .  If you have any questions  please feel free to reach to me

Everything used was from my stash, using it up ... and that was fun to do ... now  there is a tiny room for something new ...

Playing with Paper dolls....

“Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will bring few regrets, and life will become a beautiful success.” 

 Louisa May AlcottLittle Women

I do not think there has been a balance for me yet, between work and play.... Work has taken over, but the moments I can play  it  appears that I  reach for my Julie Nutting dolls... maybe since they  take me only a few hours to create and   seeing something completely  in my world right  now is  instant gratification.  
What I have  found  though as well is using a  6x6 paper pad all up by creating  ohh 3 tags ( guess its a little, okay a lot of layering in my world)  but   I have  used  up my stash and  have  tags available  when time will not permit me to create for that  special occasion. 
All three tags were created using the 6x6 paper pad by Authentique  Irresistible , along with Prima flowers from the Salvage District Collection. ( they are all gone), some pretty seam binding trim and oh  one of my favorite leaf dies by cottage cuts ...

I have  looked at my past  JN dolls tags and  the ones on display at the store and I have realized, that they all hold  a quote, a saying .. I guess its the way I create with them .. I tried  recently nott to add one .. but it was not me, and  I like the   quotes ! 

A  customer did ask where I go  my quotes from and  I search for them. Its an app extension with FB  so that you can see what your friends are  reading, what it  out there .. so if you read  its  a wonderful site .. if you are looking for  unique one of a kind quotes, its even better! 

Until ...
