CHA Remember 2015 Jar - by Mistra Hoolahan

Hi lovelies, Mistra here with you today!

What's the next best thing for a scrapbooker to being at CHA?  Being able to showcase NEW stuff that's being launched at CHA!!  

Donna has some fabulous NEW stuff happening with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, these tied in with all her other goodies we know and love, it's like a match made in scrappy heaven!

Today I have this "Remember" Jar to share with you.  I made this to pop little notes of positive things  that have happened over the course of the year into.  Then at the beginning of 2016, we read through them.  Like a reverse resolution!  We'll see all the wonderful things we did achieve, no matter how small, instead of making a New Years Resolution and failing it before January is even finished like we often do!  I saw the idea on Pinterest ages ago, but it wasn't until I saw that a childhood friend of mine had posted on Facebook hers that she actually did for 2014!  Thanks Tanya for the unintentional reminder that I wanted to do this 'one day'!!

I've got all sorts of Donna Salazar Designs goodies on here!  The fabulous NEW bits are all available from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L... and guess what, not all of them are adhesive things, there's textiles, yep!  There's Lace Ribbons, Denim Sheets & Canvas Flags, Organza Ribbon, Burlap Ribbon, Denim Books and even Pigments, as well as some fabulous adhesive items that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L do so very well.  Was I excited much, oh yes!!

My base started with this fabulous NEW Burlap Ribbon - OMG squeal right?  Even just as is, not altered, it's all kinds of awesomeness.  Why...  because it doesn't fray and fall apart at the edges, they've been stitched for you to prevent that happening.  Of course, if you wanted it all frayed, then you can easily trim into it and get that happening.  I then over-layed a piece of NEW Lace Ribbon, these come with 2 kinds in a pack and are this lovely creamy colour, perfect for girlie grunge styling!! 

The next piece of deliciousness is this NEW Organza Ribbon, it comes packaged with the Burlap Ribbon... I love that match of rough versus soft and delicate.  I've used it simply here, just tied to create a lovely elegant bow.  I've kept the design quite simple, instead of covering the whole jar with grungy textures and colours, as I wanted to see the notes it put in there grow over the year!

Not many OTP things I create get to wander off without a butterfly somewhere!  Below I've cut a butterfly in canvas using Donna's Wonderful Wings Die by Spellbinders, love that die.

And I've made some wild roses using Donna's Rose Creations Die and some of her lovely paper from her Spring in Bloom collection.  The smaller flowers were cut from Donna's Bitty Blossoms die,  Once assembled and dried the little flower was sprayed with Donna's Wood Stain Smooch Spritz from Clearsnap and one of the larger flowers was misted with a blend of River Mossy and Ice Rink.  The Smooch Spritzes blend beautifully!

Lastly I made an iddy tag cut from some of Donna's cute Creative Cards design from Clearsnap. This was sprayed with some of the River Mossy and Ice Rink blend and then the edges were distressed and inked with Stormy Mix'd Media Inx.

Thanks for stopping in today, I hope you've liked my little Remember Jar!  Keep checking back here for more cool CHA samples... there's some stunners coming though as well as some fabulous work from our Mixed Media Maven herself!  Much excitement!!
