Dreamers…Can You Survive the Nightmare? October 2, 2009

Filed under: ScrapbookDreamer.com — Kathi @ 6:00 am

Welcome Dreamers to one of your first challenges in the “Can You Survive the Nightmare?” month-long event taking place at ScrapbookDreamer.com this month.

Friday the 13th – might make you shiver if you recall the movie or you might just be superstitious, but for all of us it has some meaning.  Here’s what it means to me right now and this is your challenge:  Based on the movie Friday the 13th, I challenge you to incorporate a masking technique in a LO this month.  You may use an item intended to be a mask or masking screen or get creative and create your own mask using flowers, leaves, die cuts or other shapes.  And then use glimmer mist, paint, ink or anything else over your masked design.  Then remove your mask, complete your LO and unveil your design for us all to see in the Dreamer gallery.

Be creative.  Have fun.

And remember the rules:

Welcome to the first ever Dreamers Nightmare Blog Hop! the rules are simple!

* all projects are to be new and created for these challenges
* must be uploaded into the ‘Dreamers Nightmare Blog Hop’ folder in the gallery by November 6th midnight est

September DT projects for ScrapbookDreamer.com October 1, 2009

Filed under: ScrapbookDreamer.com — Kathi @ 1:06 pm

Still being a bad blogger and I’m way behind.  Autumn in Atlanta has kicked my butt this year with bad allergies and asthma.  So I’ll try to catch up now.  First, I wanted to share my September DT projects for Dreamer.  Lots of great stuff in the store right now, which means these designs came together very smoothly.

My sister and her then fiance and now her husband.  Hmm, maybe I’ll have to scrap a wedding photo or two this month.

Stay tuned for fun things this month at Dreamer.  We have a blog hop starting tomorrow and it will run all month long.  Some come visit us on the message board and check out all the fun we have.  I’m first up tomorrow, so I’ll be posting again then.  Can’t wait…


August DT Products for ScrapbookDreamer.com August 31, 2009

Filed under: ScrapbookDreamer.com — Kathi @ 11:26 am

Yikes, I’ve been a bad blogger and am just now showing my August projects for Dreamer.  I’ve been obsessed with Blythe dolls recently, so of course my LOs both feature my Blythe dolls this month.

I loved working with the Fancy Pants papers featured in both of these LOs.

Be sure to drop by Dreamer – it’s a great forum with awesome members, lots happening every month – including challenges, crops, etc.  It’s just a great place to hang!

May DT Reveal @ ScrapbookDreamer.com May 3, 2009

Filed under: ScrapbookDreamer.com — Kathi @ 3:09 pm

The reveals are underway at ScrapbookDreamer.com.  I’ve had a fabulous time designing this month.

One Fine Day – my mom on the verge of turning 13 in Fall 1944.

Supplies:  Pattern Paper: Making Memories (background die cut),  Lily Bee Designs (background and smaller die cut shaped papers); Alphas: American Crafts Vinyl Thickers; Die Cut Frame/Photo Corner: Lily Bee Designs; Rub-Ons: October Afternoon; Flowers: Deja Views (fabric), Buttons Galore & More (felt), American Crafts (paper), Maya Road (sheer); Rhinestones: Prima; Other: Fancy Pants Stick Pin, Trim, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists; Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts

Designer Notes:  There was plenty of coordinated paper once I removed the Lily Bee die cuts from the sheet, so I used that space to punch butterflies for my LO.


She Achieved – my mom high school graduation photo taken in the Fall of 1948 and she graduated in June 1949.

I found the original stone from her HS class ring in the bottom of a cardboard box of her stuff, so I used it for a flower center.

Supplies:  Cardstock: Archivers; Pattern Paper: Daisy D’s; Alphas: Making Memories; Flowers: Prima; Stickers: Stampendous; Epoxy: K&Company Life’s Journey; Pearls: Kaiser Craft; Ink: Clearsnap; Punch: Stampin’ Up Font: Times New Roman; Other Trim; Gemstone from her class ring

Designer Notes: If you have emphemera to include and don’t want to alter it in any way, then scan it to use on your LO like I did. I attached the original invitation in an envelope on the back of my LO. Because the invitation text is a very ornate script, I kept my title and journaling fonts simple. Of special note, my mom had replaced the gemstone in her class ring at some point, and I had found the original gemstone loose in the bottom of a cardboard box of her stuff, so I used it as a flower center.


I Love Roses – two roses in my garden.

Supplies: Pattern Paper: Basic Grey; Alphas: American Crafts Foam Thickers; Journal Page: Making Memories; Stickers: Stampendous; Pearls/Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft; Velvet Flower: Maya Road; Woven Label: Jo-Ann Stores; Flocked Lace: We Are Memory Keepers; Other: Chipboard Glitter Heart, trim, Offray Ribbon Roses, DMC Embroidery Floss

And the gallery is just full of inspiration, so come chat with us and be inspired!
