 Free your beautiful mind

Supplies:
Gecko galz "beautiful words" collage sheet
Gecko galz "pixie dust" digital designer paper pack
Cavallini and co tissue tape
Kate Endle collage designer paper
Distress inks

Instructions: I covered my cardstock with the brown paper from Gecko Galz pixie dust paper pack and added a piece of paper from the Kate Endle collage paper pack.  I cut the image and sentiment from the beautiful words collage sheet and finished with the tissue tape.




The best thing

Supplies:
Gecko Galz “Beautiful words” collage sheet
Gecko Galz “In my Garden” stamp set
Gecko Galz “Victorian Garden” digital designer papers
Prima flowers
Lace border
Distress Inks

Instructions:  I sized and printed the little girl from the In my Garden stamp set onto digital designer paper from the Victorian Garden digital designer papers pack.  I covered the cardstock with another one of the papers from the Victorian Garden digital designer paper pack.  I print and cut a sentiment from the Beautiful Words collage sheet.  After arranging all the images to my satisfaction I glued everything to the card stock.  The final step was adding the lace border and prima flowers.

  In the garden: you are sweet

Supplies:
Gecko Galz "In the Garden" collage sheet
Gecko Galz Victorian spring icons
Heart brad by Eyelet Outlet
Washi tape   
Distress inks
Tim Holtz ideo-logy word stickers

Instructions: The postcard and boot are from the Gecko Galz Victorian spring icons collection and I arranged them together digitally before printing.  Once I printed the combined images, I cut the postcard and affixed it on cardstock with Scor-tape.  I distressed around the edges with distress inks. I cut out an image (the woman) from the In the Garden collage sheet and added her to the postcard.  The postage at the top right hand corner is washi tape.  I added the heart brad and the words last.


We asked Michele the following question
If you had magic powers what 3 things would you do to advance the Crafting/scrapbooking Movement?

1)      Everyone gets a craft room!

2)      Everyone gets all arty play time they need!

3)      And most importantly I would make everyone know that they are creative and that their work is beautiful so don’t be afraid to put it out there
