Daily Art Practice – May 15th

Hello and happy Friday! here is another Daily Art Journal page from my “DAP-journal”.

For this page I used a woodgrain paper as background, then mounted the almanac page on top and fussy cut randomw words from a magazine and added a stamped Klartext stamp image next to them. Everything translates to: dark circles gradually increasing.

On top of everything I added a fussy cut old photo of a lady and did some stenciling with one of my STAMPlorations stencils and white gesso.

That´ s all for today. Hope you have some crafty time planned for the weekend :)!

Have a good one,

Daily Art Practice – May 8th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing another Daily Art Practice journal page. This one is a very small one, I just used the Artistic Almanac 2022 page as my background piece.

I used one of my STAMPlorations stencil designs here on the background with white gesso. On top of that I added an old black and white portrait photo and finished the page off with a Klartext stamp.

I really like using these “Denglisch” sentiments in my journal. And also stencils! Hope you enjoyed today´ s share.

Have a great day and remember to be thankful for all the good things in your life today.

Take care,
Sanna

Daily Art Practice – April 13th

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am again stopping by to share another Daily Art Practice Jounal page with you. These have always the Artist Almanac pages as their starting point. This is what I ended up making:

For this page I simply continued the background feeling and added stamping and fussy cut elements to it. Also some Posca pink pen marks are here and there on the background.

To add the stencil pattern to the page I used STAMPlorations stencils from my stencil line there with Distress Paints. And to finish the page off I used Klartext stamps again.

I hope your week is a nice one!

Craft for a Cause – Blog Hop for Shery Russ

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a craft post for a cause: We are organizing fundraising for our friend Shery Russ. Shery is a paper crafter, creative designer, illustrator and owner of @stamplorations along with her husband. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2022, and it has spread to her right pelvis. She and her husband David have two beautiful daughters, who are 6 and 4 years old.

Shery has been unable to work since receiving her diagnosis, and as of May 23, David is responsible for pretty much everything due to Shery’s chemo treatments. So we join together to send her some good energy and help thru purchases/donations with this crafty hop. (Please read all the way to the end for a change to win a little prize, too).

I created this card for Shery using STAMPlorations stencils and papers from my own stash. The stamped elements are also done with STAMPlorations stamps. Now due to the treatments and concentrating on her cancer journey, she has clearly not been able to keep the sore open as usual, BUT if you want to help, here are some options:

July 3, 2022 — Since my breast cancer diagnosis in April, I’ve had to drastically cut back on work. I needed to focus on getting to doctor appointments, having labs/scans/tests/procedures done, and (since May 23) going to chemo treatments. Our online store is our family’s main income source; our finances have taken a major hit since my diagnosis.

As my physical health allows, I’m making select products available to order. I’ve bundled them up and put them in envelopes so they are ready to be mailed as soon as possible. They are also available at up to 64% off (either at an instant discount or with their respective discount codes indicated on the product titles and product descriptions). At this time, we are shipping only within the US and Canada. I need to keep shipping simple for when my husband has to take over shipping duties. Shipping is either a flat $5 (orders under $35) or free anywhere in the US, while shipping to Canada is a flat $21 (inclusive of duties and taxes via Delivered Duty Paid).

For our loyal customers and friends who have asked about ways to help us during this time, a sister at our church has put up a Meal Train page for our family — those who live close by us could bring us prepared meals, and those who live far could send us gift cards through GrubHub or donate money to ease our financial burden. If you would like to donate directly, we have created a page dedicated to our family’s breast cancer journey that we will regularly update.

Whether you order from our store, help us through Meal Train, or make a donation, our family is eternally grateful for your help and generosity!

Also what you can do to support Shery and her family is you can go to the STAMPlorations digital product section and purchase designs there. Here is the direct link there. Any purchase and donation is a help, no matter how small!

To follow the blog hop, please kindly start from Sadia´ s Instagram page and hop along from there. Any kind of help towards Shery´ s family is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support and/or purchase.

Eine Panne – Dani Peuss

Hallo ihr Lieben und einen wunderschönen Dienstag! Heute möchte ich mit Euch ein Layout teilen, das ich mit dem Juni-Kit von Dani Peuss gestaltet habe.

Dieses Mal habe ich weißen Cardstock verwendet, auf dem ich ganz ganz groß den Titel angebracht habe. Das Foto ist nicht so vielsagend, die Erinnerung aber dafür umso mehr ;-). Deswegen habe ich freihändig einen ganz prominenten Titel gezeichnet und mit der Schere die Buchstaben aus den Juni-Papieren herausgeschnitten.

Damit das blaue Papier noch mehr vom Hintergrund hervorsteht, habe ich die “Pfeile” und die Buchstaben mit einem schwarzen Stift dem Rand entland nachgezogen.

Zum Papier dazu habe ich die Maggie Holmes Die cuts verwendet und danach das Layout mit ganz vielen Klartext Stempelsprüchen ergänzt. Da kamen einige Sets zum Einsatz: “Alltagsmagie”, “Klare Worte”, “Staycation”, “nicht okay” und “unser schönes Zuhause”.

Den Hintergrund habe ich mit einem Distress Oxide Ink und einen meiner Schablonendesigns bei STAMPlorations gestaltet. Dazu könnt ihr mehr auf dem Video, der am Ende dieses Postings zu finden ist, herausfinden.

Alles andere ist eben aus dem Juni-Kit oder vom Klartext. Die roten Pünktchen habe ich mit Nuvo Drops gestaltet und der sarkastisch gemeinter “Happiness”-Stoffband ist zwar bei Dani Peuss gekauft worden, aber von 49 and Market und nicht im Kit inkludiert. Die musste ich einfach haben, weil er sehr vielseitig einsetzbar ist. Und Wunderschön!

Und nun zum Video:

Ich hoffe, dass ich euch etwas inspirieren konnte! Momentan gestalte ich total gerne solche Layouts, die nicht nur die schönen Seiten des Lebens festhalten. Irgendwie ist das auch gleich therapeutisch. Ausserdem finde ich, dass solche Momente auch festgehalten gehören. Denn irgendwann kann man auch darüber wieder lachen und das sind dann die besten Erinnerung im Nachhinein!

Ich wünsche Euch eine wunderschöne, kreative Woche!
xxx, Sanna
