Create Often, Be Funky, and Pink Paislee!

I have lots to share today!

First of all, I want to thank Jennifer Evans for featuring me on her beautiful blog, Create Well, Create Often. Her blog is very inspirational! Be sure to add it to your daily blog surfing schedule! :D

My Cute Stamps


I have been turned on to a fun new photo editing site called BE FUNKY. A place where you can add super fun, super funky effects to your photos. And it's super easy! You can use it for free, but you will get a watermark in the corner (can be cropped out later). Or join for more options. The fees are very reasonable, especially compared to the price of photo-editing software. Perfect for scrapbookers, right?!!!

Here is an example of what I've been playing with over there . . . and the pages I created using the photos.


Line Artopia 4

Cartoonizer 1

Patriotic 4

Page created using the NEW Noel Mignon Lemonade Stand Kit (Click here to purchase. . . Still a few left!!!)

I used one of the Black & White setting on these photos for the page for my post on the Pink Paislee Blog today.


Black & White 3

On this page, I used lots of Bayberry Cottage: Papers, Punchouts, Clear Stamps, Clear Borderline Sticker, Ribbon Pleat, and Cork Buttons. The title is created with the Blackberry Weathered Wood Expressions Alphabets (I can't get enough of these!).

And then for added OOMPH I accented my page with lots of Zva Creative Crystal Accents. I used crystals to embellish the layered cork buttons (CR-02CB-101), a flourish to accent my title (CRS-02CB-101), and crystal lines on top of the ribbon pleat (CR-01CB-109).

Fun stuff, right?! I can't wait to play around with the Old Photo, Grunge, and Sunburst photo effects by BeFunky next.

Thanks for coming by! Hope you are having a great week!


  1. As always the layouts are awesome! I finally started scrapping again. I visited your sketch blog and printed a bunch of them out and they have really jumpstarted me out of my funk and I've gotten 3 pages done this week :) Big accomplishment for me. Now all I need is my home computer to be working so I can post them to my blog! Have a great day :)
