Ticket Rainbow | Patreon Details

Hi friends, I just want to say that I love rainbow color combos!  I wanted to create a rainbow with this layout and decided to use a ticket patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy “She’s Magic” collection to achieve that.  I fussy cut a bunch of the tags from that paper and then phrases from another paper to create the rainbow embellishments!

I have linked to all of the products I have used in the description box of the video linked below.  Click on the video link and then the Show More section under the video, and the links to the products are all there.

I created the watercolor section with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals; this is a super fun and easy product to work with.  I have linked to the Lindy’s in the video description.

My Creative Scrapbook February Main Kit | Layout #2

Hi friends! Welcome to my blog today!  Today I am sharing a layout that I created as a guest designer for February for the My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club Main Kit!  This kit is beautiful!  I have an unboxing video of the main kit over on my YouTube channel if you would like to check it out.

I am using the sketch for February for this layout!

I am all for the scrapbooking sisterhood and I love how this layout turned out documenting this topic!  I love these photos from Crop & Create events in 2019!  So fun!

I love all of the papers and embellishments in this kit, and I made use of the floral paper in the kit that lent itself to fussy cutting.  You can find out all of the details here on my YouTube tutorial:

Patreon

Hi friends!  One of my goals this year for Mari Clarke Creations is to widen the platforms where people can access my projects.  That means posting more here and on YouTube.  With the ongoing changes on the many platforms, I decided to offer a paid membership to the ways you can access my projects/videos.

I started a Patreon account today and am kicking this off with a giveaway for Patrons.  Be sure to check it out at this link:

https://www.patreon.com/preview/90cc4fc95a3c462c9e25735084a31e91

It will be lots of fun over on Patreon where you will be able to see completely exclusive techniques and creativity for Patrons only.  I hope this is something that you might find interesting!

I am so grateful to all of the people who have joined me on this creative journey over the past five years on social media.  February is the fifth anniversary of my YouTube channel and here I am starting something completely new to me once again!

Thank you again for checking this out if you get a chance!

Have a wonderful day!

Family Photo | My Creative Scrapbook

Hi friends!

Have you heard of the My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club?  This is a monthly kit club offering a variety of types of kits for memory keeping.  I was invited to guest design for them for February using the Main Kit!

The kit is very pretty with lots of opportunities to create beautiful projects!  I was amazed at how much product is in the kit!  Great value!  The club also offers cut files and sketches to create with as well!

Here is my first project with the kit:

I really like how this came together.  The photo was taken at my daughter’s wedding in 2018; the photo captures all of the cousins, Grandpa and the new addition (our son-in-law)!  It’s a fun photo and layout!

Here is a tutorial with all of the details:

At the James

You know how there are certain moments in your life that just mean so much? Things you just keep going back to in your mind…memories that just last…when those moments are beautiful, I just want to hang on and that’s where memory keeping is just so important for me.

jameshoteld-2water

I have done lots of projects around Bailey’s shower at the James…it was just such a beautiful day!  My sister organized the day from start to finish.  She lives 3000km away and planned the entire thing from a distance.  She made the most amazing cookies:

Seriously amazing, am I right?  Look at all of the details…and you know what??… many of these cookies are fashioned closely to be similar to the general style of Bailey’s dress!!!  It’s all in the details.  So to pull this all off, she drove all of the way from her home (yes, 3000 km x 2) to get the cookies and all of the other things for the shower and wedding here in Saskatchewan.

We had our own bartenders and a completely catered buffet of beautiful food:

The penthouse suite is just so beautiful, complete with a full kitchen and two bedrooms.  We had a beautful deck with a fire table to enjoy the evening away as well!

And what is a beautiful shower without a macaron tower?

So many lovely memories:

This is a day that we will never forget!  So much fun at the James! Love you, sis!

Fancy Pants Giveaway

Hi Friends,

I have two really beautiful collections in my stash from Fancy Pants and I will be doing a giveaway with these collections during the month of February!

Details for this contest are over on Instagram .  If you don’t have an Instagram account, I apologize and wish there was another way to do this.

It recently came to my attention that there are very specific guidelines to contests and giveaways on YouTube with the Terms of Use/Service Agreement.

The YouTube agreements regarding giveaways are complicated and I do not want to post any further giveaways on that platform.  You can do a search on YouTube regarding giveaway rules to find out more about that.  I don’t want to complicate my channel, so in the future I will be sure to let you know as best I can when the giveaways are happening on Instagram.  You do not have to make a purchase to be involved in the giveaway.  This is completely free. This is merely me giving back to my fellow crafters!!

I hope that makes sense!  I honestly just want to share my stash!

I want to thank you all so much for your support on YouTube and Instagram and other platforms.  I love to interact with you all and share projects and inspiration!

Thank you so much for reading my post today!

Just Paper, Scissors, Glue & Tools

Imagine that all you have in your craft supply stash is a few pieces of paper, some adhesive and some basic tools…what can you do with that to memory keep?  This series on YouTube will address that and take you through tutorials showing you how to create with basic supplies to create simple and clean scrapbook pages.

I love creating simple layouts!  I have tried lots of different scrapbooking techniques and I seem to love them all, but I really do love a simple layout that has a clean style.  The project I am sharing today is exactly like that.

I dove into my stash and found some products I really like.  Turns out I really like all of the products in my stash…that makes sense since I bought them because I liked them!  I chose products and photos that worked together to document the memory that would be the focal point of the project.

Here are some photos of the project and a link to the video tutorial.  Be sure to leave a comment here on my blog or on the video to let me know what you think of the series and my project!

 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Mr. Snowman

Sometimes a product just speaks to me…you crafters out there all know what I am talking about, am I right?  The Tim Holtz Colorize dies are just so cool and they are such great quality products.

Mrsnowa-2

The Mr. Snowman dies are so adorable and with this set you can create this jolly soul!  I added Distress Oxide Ink in Pumice Stone to the edges of my white card stock pieces to define the layers, and Black Soot to the red areas.  I cut all of my colored pieces from Tim’s Kraft Card Stock Classic pad…another favorite product from Tim Holtz!

The trees are cut from the Woodlands dies from Tim Holtz as well.  I think the partnership between Sizzix and Tim Holtz is pure genius.  I can’t wait to create more projects using the Colorize series!

Here is a link to the video for all of the details for this project:

 

Have a wonderful day!
