I've come to reconsider where I stand on the whole copyright issue, in regards to work that appears on my blog. If you happen to see art that I've created on this blog and it inspires you, by all means go ahead and appropriate it. If you want to modify it, scraplift it, use only parts of it or copy it outright, you have my permission to do so here. If you want to give me credit, fine. If you don't, that's okay too. I've been inspired by countless other people in all walks of life and I believe that generosity of spirit is much greater than any personal pride or glory I could achieve from claiming to be the first or the best to do anything. The sole exception to this would be photos of my family, to protect their privacy.

I am still at play with some of the add-on kit goodies from last month's JBS, plus I wanted to start doing a little holiday crafting - I know it's only September but December gets here so fast and I never have enough handmade cards ready so I am doing them earlier this year. The first one is a handglittered halloween card, using the vintage page from last month's JBS kit. I ran the sheet right through the printer and then added glass glitter by outlining the shadowed part of the font with Ranger Inkssentials Matte Accents - the fine tip applicator is perfect for detail work. The font I used is Shadowed Germanica.
Next, a few holiday cards using JBS Bingo cards. I love the versatility of Jenni's bingo cards. They're so easy to dress up and look great plain too!
The sunburst effect was done with a stencil from a past JBS kit and Jenni's new Ranger Dabber Inks in stick candy and cough syrup, plus her new Christmas themed chipboard buttons. The vintage holly leaves and jingle bells are from Papier Valise.
And finally, this sweet little minibook which I covered in burlap and lace trim.
Here are a few additional projects I created for the mid month gallery update at Jenni Bowlin Studio. I loved this kit and creating with it was so easy!
This layout, called Sunday Afternoon was made with items in the add-on kit - the lace hambly rubons went on like a dream.
These cards were inspired by images on the Design Sponge blog:
and finally, I created this little gingerbread man ornament with a papier mache ornament from Hobby Lobby, and an empty Maya Road chipboard tin for packaging. A complete supply list and instructions can be found in my gallery at JBS:
Here's a quick share of a layout I did of Alekha for JBS September. I love the blueberries against the pistachio green polka dotty background of Jenni's new Family Tree Collection. And the rubons on the photo are from 7 Gypsies' new steampunk rubbings - they add such a fabulous touch to the photo. I will look back on this photo in the coming winter months and remember the warmth of summer and her sunkissed face. Here is a sweet watercolor postcard of a blueberry pie for your virtual enjoyment!
