Disclaimer: Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration but not all pins lead to blogs. I tried to only pick those ideas that I could find the original creator and give credit to. Please take a moment and check out these great blogs because without them I wouldn't have content to talk about on the new My Craft Channel show Inspired by Pinterest.  

If you've never been to Pinterest and would like to check it out, you need an invite to the site to gain access (I don't know why). Just leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you an invite. However, I cannot be responsible for the time you will be spending on Pinterest!! 


2016 Primary Printables: I Know the Scriptures are True

I was so excited about the 2016 Primary Theme, "I know the Scriptures are True." I started playing in illustrator with some fonts...but the one thing missing was the "perfect" image representing the "scriptures"...so I did what any designer does, I googled scripture images and some good and bad ones came up. But one particularly drew my eye because I recognized it as one my friend, Allison Kimball had created and posted on her blog. So I contacted her to ask her permission to use the image on my printables. She agreed to let me "share" this for a FREE download. Be sure to check out her BLOG HERE, she's a wonderful writer and does amazing artwork and doodles. 
So I worked up our new Binder Covers for our Primary Presidency...next thing I thought I'd create something for our Teacher's Binders and that led to the last part, Door Signs. And I'm so excited to share these with whomever would like to download and print them for their primary!  

UPDATE: After many requests I have included both JPG and PDF versions of these files. There is also a BLANK one for each set of files so you can "create your own" version, title or name if needed. The fonts I used are DEMING EP for the names of the class or presidency member. Sweet Peony is the scripty font.

While I was working on these I listened to the Face to Face with The Piano Guys video. It was wonderful and I cannot resist sharing with you each of you that stop by. Check it out here.

Inspired by Pinterest: Holiday Drop Cloth Pillow

I recently taught this class at the Salt Lake Pinners Conference and had such an amazing time with awesome students. But obviously not everyone that follows my show could attend the event. So I was asked multiple times to share this project and brief tutorial on my show. So here you go...

I don't have pins to share with this episode since it's based of two previous DROP CLOTH episodes that aired last year. You can check them out below...they link back to the original post AND video.

Printing your Journaling on the Go

Every fall and spring I have the wonderful opportunity to go spend a few days up in Lake City, Utah on the shore of beautiful Bear Lake. And sometimes the weather cooperates with us and we get to play outside a bit.

Our group consists of some amazing ladies that we call "Ladies of the Lake" and there is A LOT of laughter, fun times and even matching hoodies. I look forward to these getaways so very much and thankfully they all love taking photos of our fun times.
If you know Bear Lake, October is typically not a good time of year to hang out up there. Some years it has been super cold and even snowed on us one year. But this year the weather was so warm and lovely. We decided to have our friend Kate from Art Affair to teach us how to paint a beautiful boat on the shore painting. 
We customized our paintings to look like Bear Lake and the gorgeous view we saw. I actually got a bit sunburned on one side, but painting outside was worth it.
But of course in the fall, when the sun went down the temperatures dropped and we moved our crafting and relaxing indoors.

Our group of ladies do a variety of crafts such crocheting, quilting, sewing, cardmaking and scrapbooking. I'm a scrapbooker through and through and these weekends are perfect to get a lot finished!! But this trip I really wanted to finish up the two albums I created of mine and my mom's trip to Italy. And like most of my projects the JOURNALING is the part I procrastinate.

So how do you print your journaling when you don't want to drag your computer and full size printer along with you? Me, I take my Canon SELPHY CP900  and my smart phone.

And since I LOVE the Rhonna Designs APP and the Canon PRINT App I was able to create some amazing journaling and print off on the spot. 

 In the Rhonna Designs App you can change the phones and even add some beautiful graphics to the image. Then save it as a photo and it's ready to PRINT.

You can design the layout to be landscape or portrait. And BONUS, I figured out how to connect my phone with the printer without having any WIFI (sadly our cabin isn't very modern). Instead of the wifi connection I simply switched it to Adhoc and it linked with my phone. I thought I'd need to use my hot spot to make it work, but I didn't and I was so stinking happy about this!

Another BONUS, now I am going to start using the Rhonna App to write up my journaling when I'm scrapbooking and design it to fit my project and then print it off using either my Canon PIXMA MG7720 or my favorite Canon PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer. Just imagine, you can design your own journaling photos while you're waiting for carpool, sitting at your child's soccer game or while watching TV with your hubby!
