Technique Thursday - Whimsy Art Cards

It's Technique Thursday!! Are you ready? Today I'm sharing how I made the Whimsy Heart Cards that I'm using for my Daily Devotional. These little cards are so fun! I love going back and reading the questions and answers. It's a very emotional experience. If you joined me yesterday , I shared my Deuteronomy Devotional cards. I also did a little post about the cards now being available in my Etsy Shop. I get lots of requests if the cards are available to buy, so as I design them, I will make them available as a download in the shop. I will also be doing tutorials on how to make some of them too. My mantra is, I love to share what I do, and make it available for everyone to enjoy and use too. So... let's get on to the Technique Thursday video!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn

Here are some suggestions for frame and stitch stamps.

Whimsy Art Cards - Deuteronomy and Exciting News!


 Whimsy Circle Cards Deuteronomy Study by Lynn Shokoples

 Good Morning Everyone! How's your day? I am a busy little beaver here, lol.. Today I'm sharing some of my new Devotional Art Cards from Deuteronomy. I'm really learning alot about myself and my relationship with HIM as I go through this devotional.

 And now for my news! Some of you may know that I have set up a little Etsy Shop. Well.. I have added new items! Not just any items... I'm making my mixed media cards available as digital downloads! I get a lot of requests to ask if the cards are available to buy, so I am now sharing them! (I even printed them off for myself to use) I print them out on Matte Brochure Paper with a "best photo" setting.

How can you use them? To make a greeting card, scripture card, prayer card, bible tip in's or for Project Life! As I make more cards for my Devotional I will be adding them to the shop. I'm excited to share them with everyone! A big thank you to all of you that have made purchases, it's so heart warming to know you like what I've designed. It's a huge deal for me, so thank you!

Soiree Crackle Album - BoBunny

Soiree Crackle Album by Lynn Shokoples for BoBunny featuring White Crackle Paste
 Morning! I was excited to share this project last week on the BoBunny blog last week. I got to play with the new White Crackle Paste!! Oh this was fun. I used one of the Misc.Me 8x9 binders, then covered it with the Crackle Paste Primer.. when the primer dried, then came the crackle paste! Fun stuff.. it's so hard to wait while it drys to see the crackle coming out, lol.. Then some Glimmer Sprays, Rough it Up Stamps and some Emerald Ink finished off the album. The pieces from the Soiree collection really complimented the album cover. A fun and easy project that looks complicated! Have a wonderful day my friends! Until next time....

Happiness is Homemade- BoBunny


Happiness Is Homemade Layout by Lynn Shokoples for BoBunny featuring the Soiree Collection
 Good Morning!!! Today on the BoBunny Facebook Page I am sharing a layout I did using the Soiree Collection. I had this photo of Ryan and Nicole printed out just waiting for the right collection, and this was it. So soft and feminine, I know Ryan will love it! My favourite part was using the new Craft Dies and Stickable Stencils. It's so hard to choose which one to use. I wanted to use them all! The elements in the Noteworthy pack added the extra touch and voila the layout was done! Thanks so much for stopping by... until next time.

Lot95 Designs Funky Floral and Mixed Media Bible Tabs

https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Lot95Designs?ref=search_shop_redirect 

https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Lot95Designs?ref=search_shop_redirect

Morning!!! Today I'm sharing couple of set of Bible Tabs I made for my Etsy store. Funky Floral's and Mixed Media Bible Tabs. I love bright and cheery as much as I love earthy colors. So those are up and ready to go.. I was pretty excited that I hand painted the backgrounds for the Mixed Media tabs. I wanted to personally thank everyone that has purchased from my store, it means a lot to me. I'm excited to make more goodies!

Now I have been asked... Why Lot95 Designs?

Lot 95 is our lake lot. My Dad originally bought it to build a home for himself and my mom to retire in. Just after my Dad finished building the cabin, he passed away. It's still a family cabin and we spend most of our weekends and holidays there. It's special to me because it reminds me of my Dad. I still miss him everyday. One morning we were outside at the cabin with the dogs and there is this old sign my Dad made that says "95" and use to be on the gate, but now hangs on our porch. I looked at it and said to my hubby.. that would make an awesome business name. So Lot95 designs was born!

Just wanted to share a little quick video I did about the tabs I made for the Inspire Bible that I shared yesterday.  I know a lot of people have been patiently waiting and I'm so happy to see more and more people say they have received theirs! This is such a gorgeous bible! I do believe I can say it's my favourite one I own. Have a beautiful day everyone!!!

Inspire Bible Tabs

 
 Good Morning! Today I wanted to share some Bible Tabs that I made to coordinate with the new Inspire Bible. Actually they would be great for any bible.  I wanted something earthy organic, so I picked some teals, peaches, greens, oranges and browns and got to work. After two days of designing, they were done! I loved them so much I wanted to share them with everyone, so I decided to open a little Etsy shop. They are priced very reasonably and there is a cheap little add on if you would like with some Topical Tabs too that match. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do... I had so much fun I will be adding more goodies to the shop soon! Have a beautifully blessed day my friends!

Daytimer of Faith Week 9 Tutorial

Documented Faith Week 9 by Lynn Shokoples
Happy Sunday! I have another video tutorial for you today! I was working on my Documented Faith Book last night and thought we could all play together! Since there was no prompt for this week, I decided to journal on some quotes or prayers that I had printed out. Any way we can worship HIM is a good thing! I also found out that I love making tutorial videos. I was so terrified before, but those nerves have calmed. I hope you all are enjoying them. I'm still learning! I am trying to do what I like to see. I love talking tutorials, even though they are longer. Let me know what you think? Longer tutorial videos or short fast forwarded process videos set to music? I'm always open to new ideas and love feedback. I hope you enjoy your day.. and I'm off to work on the next page!

New Blog and an Amazon store!!

Good Morning Everyone! 
 
 Just a quick little post about some fun changes on my blog!

I get a lot of people asking me about which products I use,
which got me thinking! Why not have links to products for them?
So along came......
http://scrappyhappymom.blogspot.ca/p/httpastore.html
I set up a store through Amazon, which lets my Canadian and International friends shop right here! No writing down supplies, clicking and more clicking. One stop shopping!
I only put products in the store that I personally use and recommend. (If I find it cheaper someplace, I am going to let you know). I'm a frugal shopper!!
This is strictly through Amazon.. it's not me selling these products, you buy them straight from Amazon.
With this store comes an affiliate program, which means I do get a small fee if you buy
from me.. but.. I'm not in this for the money. It's more about helping you guys out by
putting things in one place. 
So I hope this can help out a few of you, and I'm excited because when I need
to reorder MY supplies, they are right here, close at hand!!
If you find a product that is fabulous, please let me know and I will add it into the store!
The shopping bags are on the sidebar, or there are links in the top tab for the stores.

I also wanted to say thank you to all of you that watched my first tutorial on Youtube yesterday,
you all just make my heart sing!
Have a beautiful day my friends!

Mixed Media Bible Art Card Tutorial

 Good Morning! Today I am sharing my very first tutorial video!! YIKES! Honestly I have been terrified to even try it, but I got up the nerve and gave it a go. I wanted to set it all to music, but I got brave and actually talked! I have been asked by quite a few people to do a tutorial on how I do my Devotional Art Cards, so this one is for them! I love you guys!  I would really appreciate some honest feedback if you can. What did you like? Didn't like?  Did you like the talking? Or should it just be music? What would you like to see tutorials on? I'm on a roll now..lol.. I really do appreciate the time it takes to give your feedback, so thank you!!! Now.. on to video number 2!!
