If you aren’t familiar with these two fantastic companies, then let me fill you in.
 
Genuinely Jane Studios manufactures small and medium size wood mini-albums for mixed media, scrapbooking and altered art in many shapes and sizes. All of the albums are hand made right on site in their Central Missouri facility. In addition to their albums, they also carry other art supplies in their online store. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/genuinelyjanestudios and their website at https://www.genuinelyjanestudios.com 

A love of creating has evolved into a studio where the owner, Linda Barutha, teaches mixed media art classes. Linnie Blooms is a local Mukwonago, Wisconsin  retail shop that offers craft supplies and art supplies. Fun and creative classes include mixed-media courses, monthly Pinterest classes, sewing classes for kids, crochet, and more. Linnie Blooms also manufacturers their own crafting supplies.  Linnie Blooms signature products are the Canvas Mixed Media Shapes & Blanks. These light weight canvas pieces are perfect for any of your crafting projects. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/LinnieBlooms and their website at http://lindabarutha.com/
 
Both the GJS and Linnie Blooms teams have teamed up to share with you the wonderful things you can create with their products. Be sure to check out both the GJS and Linnie Blooms websites for the full line of products! 
I am on the design team for both of these companies & I was so excited they teamed up for this hop.  Here is what I created using both of their products together.  I used 3 pages out of the wood banner album to create this actual banner.  It is hanging from a vintage window in my craft room.
I used these shapes from Linnie Blooms, in order on the banner: butterfly wings (stamped & cut in 1/2), small pocket (apron), mini blank, cut out heart, and a house.  I used the heart that I cut out as part of the chimney to the house.  I love working with both of these products together, the ideas are endless.

I altered an old cigar box and made a memory box for my BFF for her birthday.  I did use the colors of my kitchen.  I have barn red, black, stainless steel, and yellow in my kitchen.  I also have clocks and stars displayed in my kitchen.   I love letters so I added her name to the box.

Got Wood? New Challenge~

Yes, it’s another challenge.. the monthly challenge is still going on but I thought I would add another challenge to change things up a bit.  You can find our Back to School September challenge here.

GOT WOOD is the new challenge.  It’s time to use your wood veneer pieces, wood chips, wood scraps, or do a home decor wood project.  My team did a Wood Album from Genuinely Jane Studios.  I am a designer for them and thought it would be fun to give each of my girls a book.  This is what we did.  We are only showing 10 of the books they currently sell, they also sell other mixed media products and goodies for all your crafty needs.

If you would like to purchase one of these books or view other designs, check out the Genuinely Jane Studios website to view, purchase, get new ideas, and more..  If you order a book soon, you will still have time to enter it in this challenge.

If you are a local friend.. I carry several of the designs in my store.  The great thing about  these books is that they are all WOOD.. so you can pretty much do what ever you want to them.  Any and all mixed media products word great.  Bust out stencils, paints, heat guns, glue guns, whatever.. and they don’t have to be used as a book.  I made ornaments and tags.  Maya made a wall hanging.  So many options.

Now to get started with our challenge.. we have a prize of wood products pictured above. You may enter twice. Refer to my rules of challenges from the challenge page. Be sure to share our challenge with your other friends, sense know one will be expecting to see another challenge from us this month. Now time to keep busy working on your wood projects.. I know you have wood somewhere~ Get creative.

A winner will be announced on Oct. 1st along w/ the winner from our other challenge.

Luvin Linnie Blooms, mixed media shapes~

I finally had some free time to play with more of my Linnie Blooms Mixed Media Canvas shapes!

My new favorite shapes are the banners and the arrows… so many options.

Here are just a few of my latest projects.  The long blank I actually made while visiting the Linnie Blooms Shop.  I made it during a class with the owner Linda Barutha.  The book was just a cover I did for fun.. I used a heart and a mini blank on that cover.   The mini canvas piece was fun to make.  I knew I wanted a picture of my youngest daughter and a few of these bits and pieces of things I loved.  I used 4 Linnie Blooms shapes on the canvas wall hanging, 2 on the book, and 7 on the long blank.  You can add the mixed media canvas shapes to scrapbook layouts and cards too.  What would you do with a few of these shapes?

 

 

Do you want a set of these shapes?  I will send a set of the mini blanks and a set of the banners that you see pictured above to someone who leaves me a comment.  Just let me know what you would do w/ your Linnie Bloom shapes.

You can also purchase your own on their website..  visit their Facebook page for more ideas.

Thanks for taking a look at my love for Linnie Bloom Mixed Media Shapes..

Linnie Blooms Design Team Coordinator & Fan,

Scrap It Girl, Kimberly
