Life In Color Pocket Pages

Hey Everyone! How is your Project Life going? I'm getting there, slowly... so slowly but moving. In these pages I documented Week 8 and the Tombow USA Design Team Summit! 
I used the Life In Color Collection from Simple Stories. I love the Currently List Cards from rukristin 
 I had so much fun in the Tombow DT Summit! I took pictures of the day, the airport, the goodies we got and the Tombow Warehouse.
 Most of these cards are from the Life In Color Sn@p Pack which also includes die cuts!
 I love to include my daughter's drawings on my album. Most of the times I take a photo but sometimes I add the actual picture.
 Can you tell that my daughter is obsessed with Shopkins? I like to use my handwriting to journal in cards with lines and my typewriter for patterns that don't have lines.
 Marie Browning engraved these super teeny scissors for the whole team! She also gave us a crafty name and mine was "Imperial Goddess Marker Sparkler". I changed it officially so I only respond to that. LOL
 I add photos of my lettering on my album for four reasons: 1) To remember books I'm reading. 2) To remember challenges I'm joining. 3) To see my progress. 4) Because I need filler photos in slow weeks.
 I hope you enjoyed these pages! Make sure you Like my Facebook Page: Earthy Scrap and Instagram @jenniegarcian I'm always over there sharing crafty goodness from my Design Teams! 


Pocket Pages: Back to School

Hi Everyone! How are your Pocket Pages going so far? I'm still finishing 2015 but I feel pretty good where I'm at. I made these pocket pages to catch up and also for Jen Boom's March Pocket Page Challenge at the Paper Issues Friends & Fans Facebook Group
I used the Simple Stories Carpe Diem Collection. You can get these awesome supplies at the Paper Issues Shop.
 I used a mix of the Sn@p Packs and Elements Papers.
 To glue all the ephemera pieces I used the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.
 This week I did my back to school shopping so I took some pictures and kept some tags.
The alphas I used for this title are from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers.
  For the tags I only glued vellum to make a pocket. I used the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive for the vellum. I'm feeling a little more comfortable using the my handwriting but I'm still mixing some journaling with my typewriter.
 If you pick up some goodies from Simple Stories at the Paper Issues Shop make sure you used the coupon code FRIENDS to get 20% off your order.
 I hope you enjoyed these pages! Make sure you follow me on my Facebook Page: Earthy Scrap to see what else I do around Blog Land!

Fantabulous! Pocket Pages

Hey Everyone! Today I'm sharing some pocket pages using the Carpe Diem Collection from Simple Stories
I love the Simple Stories Sn@p Packs to make my pages super fast! 
I have a crazy obsession with frames and I promised myself that this year I would use at least half!
The Fantabulous! Card is from Shimelle.
This was a slow week so I took screen shots of my daughter's app and my new organization system.

My favorite adhesive to scrap right now is the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed these pages! Remember to Like my Facebook Page: Earthy Scrap to see more of my projects for the design teams I belong! You can also follow me on Instagram @jenniegarcian


January Java Journal Share!

Hello Crafty People! Today I want to share some pages from my January Java Journal with you. You see, I've been neglecting my blog a little *ahem* because I've been having an affair with Instagram. So I plan to blog a little more often from my phone to share some of the projects I often InstaShare. I know, it's the middle of February and I STILL haven't finished this project. Honestly, I'm not even close! But here are a few things I have so far!

For this page I used the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen Hard Tip for the journaling. I also used washi tape from Freckled Fawn and puffy stickers from Fancy Pants Designs.
In this one I layered a bunch of Fancy Pants Designs Labels and the 5 is also from their Happy Place Collection. The pink alpha stickers are from October Afternoon. 
This journal is from Dear Lizzy. The numbers for 2016 are from Freckled Fawn.
What are your goals this year? I am so failing at half of them! LOL Let me know in the comments!


Pocket Pages: We Are Family

Happy Valentine's Day!
Today I want to share with you some Pocket Pages I made using the We Are Family Collection from Simple Stories. Did you heard? I'm part of the 2016 Creative Team! I am so super excited! I love this company so much! 
To make these pages I used the Sn@p Pack, if you are a newbie they are perfect for you! They come with all sizes of cards and die cuts! It makes the process so much faster! I have 12 weeks left in my 2016 album and I plan to sit down with these Sn@p Packs one afternoon and doing some major catching up!
To glue the die cuts I used the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Pattern Adhesive.
 I love the little words and phrases stickers that come in the sticker sheets!
 Check out these close ups!
 To write the "Today will be Awesome" phrase I used the Little Moments App.

Blogger won't let me reply to your comments so if you have any questions or you want to hear from me go to my Facebook Page Earthy Scrap or follow me on Instagram @jenniegarcian


Tombow USA and Stampendous! Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Tombow USA and Stampendous! Blog Hop! You probably came here from Kristine's Blog. If you stumbled across my blog go to the Stampendous! Blog to start.

I made two projects. The first one is a pretty simple card which are a bit hard for me but I really wanted the image to be the star of the card.
  To make the background I scribbled on the Blending Palette using the Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Then I sprayed water and picked up the color with watercolor paper.
To color the Beautiful Braid Rubber Stamp I used my Tombow Irojiten Pencils and my Tombow Recycled Pencils. I always have my Tombow Sand Eraser at hand in case I color too dark and I need to lighten up or in case I make a mistake.

I wanted a light Bokeh effect so I used the Heart Duo Stencil Set to make some light hearts with white ink and a dauber.

 I glued my card using the Tombow Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive (it's my favorite and it's on sale!), Tombow Foam Tape for the star and sentiment and the Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue for the sequins and twine.
 My second project is a tag. I did the background with the same technique I did on the first card. In the tag I added a second layer using Tombow Dual Brush PensBlending PaletteHeart Duo Stencil Set and the eBrush tool.
 I colored the  Beautiful Braid Rubber Stamp with my Tombow Irojiten Pencils and my Tombow Recycled Pencils. To add the lettering I used the Fudenosuke Brush Pen Hard Tip

 We have two amazing prizes!

The second one is a bundle of Stampendous! NEW Stencil DuosBlossom Duo Stencil Set, Heart Duo Stencil Set, and the Butterfly Duo Stencil Set.
