Happy Father's Day BookMark Coffee beans 2020

Welcome Back Friends,

Robin here with the Lady Beans Blog, sharing my project using the most adorable image  Jesse Boy Bear, from  Bug A Boo Stamps , for Fathers Day.

My father has been gone for 22 years, I miss him everyday.  He was an avid reader, and hence very smart.  I know how much he would of loved my bookmark !!

I colored my image with colored pencils, fussy cut the bear out. Inserted pattern paper, that I stamped Happy Fathers Day onto, and then inserted that into the bookmark sleeve, and then adhered Jesse Boy Bear to the front of the bookmark. I love the dimension with the image on the outside of the sleeve.

Wedding Table Numbers Marker Coffee Beans 2020

Welcome Back Friends,

Robin here with The Lady Beans Blog, sharing my project with a great digi hand drawn by our very own Anne Ingram. Her wedding cake can be found at

I just recently attended the sweetest wedding. Held at the historic Botzum Farm, located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The wedding was outside and then we made our way to the barn, decorated with sunflowers, burlap, and lace. The bride wore a beautiful gown, and her cowboy boots!

I was asked to use Anne's wedding cake digi and create a wedding project. I was inspired by the sunflowers, burlap and lace found at the wedding.

Wouldn't these be beautiful as table markers? I can see these used as a tent card marker, on a floral tag holder in a jar of sunflowers, or just laid in the center of the table.

Masculine Horse Redwood Home Decor & Feminine Decor GG June 2020

 Welcome Back Friends,

Robin here, sharing my projects for the Gecko Galz Blog, for June, The Color of Summer. I have always been fascinated with horses, however, my experience with them has been few. Both times I attempted to ride a horse ended up with me being dumped in the lake at church camp, and the 2nd year, bravely trying again, resulted in my horse running a muck, through a very weedy, woody field just outside the riding ring.

Ok so I am not a country girl ! But, when I laid my eyes on these digi collage sheets from Gecko Galz Etsy Shop, I knew I had to work with them.

I love to use found objects in my creations and projects, after downloading, Horseing Around College Set, I went through my blanks looking for just the right piece, Let me know if you think I did!!

This a piece of Redwood from California, that I happen to find at my favorite resell store!

I tore out the horse images I wanted to use, inked the edges heavy with walnut stain ink. I adhere the 3 images, taking care to burnish the edges down good. From there I sifted through my wood beads, and do dads, and found these beauties, that compliment my piece!

I fell in love so much with this set of Horses, I decide to create a second project.

Again I went shopping in my blanks and found what I call a box frame. It was already white, so I just cleaned it up a bit and began with trimming out the horse images I wanted to use.  I was feeling the wildness, and free spirit of the images I picked, which sent me on the hunt for a patterned piece of paper that was map like. After trimming the background paper and adhering it, I went to work building up the images so they would be raised off the background at different heights. Moving the images till I found what I liked, I adhered them in place. I stamped and trimmed out the sentiments and adhered above and below the images. After taking the piece all in, I went on a hunt for something, not sure what, but I founded it in my trim box. I hot glued the eyelash trim around the frame, finishing the project off.
