Choose to be happy

Hello everyone this is Mona back with a fun journal page featuring the brand new die set from Kat Scrappiness called Cute Layered Owl Die Set.. everyone knows I love owls so this is a favourite of mine. Let me walk you thru the steps of my journal page.
I started by adding modpodge with torn pieces of script paper  in random places  on my background , once that was dry I added a thin layer of light blue paint on top. Now for the fun part took out many different stencils white and dark blue paint and stencilled using my Dream weaver Stencil Brush. For the finishing touch I added a bit of stamping using a old script stamp and some Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink.
This is what I used to cut my elements for my page , Kat Scrappiness cute owl die set and a stampendous set for the tree. I also stamped a fence twice and fussy cut them. I used my alcohol markers to colour in all my images.
Once everything was cut out I placed it on my page and adhered it with modpodge. This is where I noticed I needed more stencilling so added a bit more. I continued by adding the shadow all around my images, used a green marker to add grass and finished off by adding my sentiment.
This finishes off my mini tutorial, than you very much for stopping by . I hope to see you again soon. Bye bye for now 😊

Get well soon- pop card

Good day everyone this is Mona back with a fun card idea for ScraPerfect.

This is the stamp set I used from Art Impression , the set comes with all stamps, dies and instructions.

I started with cutting my card base  41/4 x 51/2 . I coloured all the pieces and die cut them.


I went on to assembling my pieces and adhering it down with the the Best Glue Ever using my no clog writing cap to make sure I add just a small amount since the pieces are so little it's easier to align in the right spot. This Glue only requires a little amount it is very tacky and is very powerful, it also dries clear in case it oozes out.

I turned my pop up card into a get well soon card for my brother who has been suffering from MS for many years and has been really on a low lately. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and make sure to stop in at to check out all their other great supplies. Hope to see you again soon

I tprinted out my digital stamps coloured them using my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them. I proceeded by adhering everything into place and this completes my mini tutorial.

Seals at Sea

Hello everyone, this is Mona back with fun art journal page using Kat Scrappiness brand new Seal dies.
I started by using my Dylusions Creative Journal  i gave a coat of gesso to my background.  I then applied two tone of blue paint to make the sky and my water.  I applied  some white  paint thru a stencil to give it dimension .  Next I took my script stamp and my Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink to stamp at random places to finish off my background.
Now for the fun part I die cut two seals and  iceberg and decided where I wanted them on my page. I proceeded by colouring all my pieces using my copics. Then used my big brush markers to add snow mountains in the background and the shadows and highlights around my seals. My sentiment I did just using a large sharpie marker and highlights with my Uniball white gel pen.
This completes my mini tutorial, thanks for stopping by. I hope I see you again soon.

House warming gift

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun little project for ScraPerfect . My son and his girlfriend recently bought a house I wanted to make them a little something to hang on their wall. This is what I came up with.

I started with a 4x6 watercolour paper that I had in my stack.and water coloured to make a sky and die cut a bunch of pieces to make my scenery. The houses,clouds and trees  are from My favourite Things house die set. The hills are from Gina Marie and the sentiment from Tim Holtz greetings die set. Once everything was cut I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour everything.

 Once everything was coloured I used my Best Glue Ever  from ScraPerfect to adhere everything down.It dries fast, clear and flexible with a super stong bond . Requires just a minimal amount to get it to stick that is why I use the No clog cap to be able to aim and dispense a small amount also found at ScraPerfect.

Once it was done I found the perfect frame for it and adhered my art to the back of the frame mat to get it centred. This completes my project,hope everyone enjoyed it. See you again soon.

Canada Day Art Journal page

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun art journal page featuring the brand new Canada Day stamp set from Sunsational Crafts.
 I started with making my background using several shades of blue paints for the sky then adhered brown cardstock for the ground. I die cut several strip of grass using a light green cardstock. Once my background was adhered into place I printed my digital image and coloured everything using my Spectrum  Noir markers. Now that everything was coloured I went on to modpodging everything into place, this makes it easier to add the shading around all the elements. I used my Faber Castell big brush marker to make all my shading and a white gel pen for my hi lights.
I hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial. If you have any questions about the products used you can just send me a message.

Hello this is Mona back with a fun card for the Summer lovers blog hop. I started  my card by cutting my card base with white  cardstock.

I had ordered this wonderful paper pad from Kat Scrappiness called cream and sugar  and cut out a rectangle using the   Stitched fancy scalloped rectangle die set to cover my card base. I proceeded by die cutting three coffee cups again using different pattern paper from the same paper pad and adhered them on my card base.  I then found a stamp with the sentiment from my stash and stamped it on white cardstock using my  lawn Fawn black jet ink pad then adhered it on a piece or pink patterned paper and added it to the top of my card. To finish off my card I adhered a few sequins from a cinnamon swirl sequin mix . This completes my card.

It's been sooo long

Hi everyone this is Mona back again with another fun card featuring the Lola the giraffe stamp set from Kat Scrappiness. I really love this stamp set.

Fun Mosquito card

Hi my name is Mona back with a fun summer card idea using this fun digital stamp set called Minneskeeta from Sunsational Crafts.
I started my card by adhering the pattern paper from my stash onto my card base using the Best Glue Ever with no clog writing cap. This Glue is very sticky and requires so little Glue this is why I always use the no clog writing cap to make sure I add just a small amount and that the tip doesn't block. The Glue dries clear and holds really well. I also adhered both mosquitoes using the same Glue.

Here I took my Embellie gellie to add the sequin to my card it has the perfect  tackiness it’s strong enough to pick up the sequins and release them in the precise spot.

This completes my card for today hope you enjoyed my mini tutorial and looking forward to see you again soon. For your browsing convenience here is the link for stamps and For the Best Glue Ever and much more.

Canada Day card

Hi everyone this is Mona back with a fun card using Fireworks Couple from Sunsational Crafts. I first started by printing the digital stamps and used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour them in and then fussy cut them.

Once my image was cut I also used a grass die cut from my stash to make the grass, I then used my Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect  to adhere everything down. It needs a very little amount and very precise on where you drop the Glue when using the No clog writing cap also from ScraPerfect . This Glue is very tacky and holds really well and dries clear so no problem if it oozes out from under the image. 

Feel free to brows additional stamps
