I’m running some two for one specials today at Mommyish!  You not only get the color card… but a new tutorial as well!

Ok, yeah it wasn’t planned.  What happened is I have my little 11 month old monster who has a cold.  If any of you know.. nursing babies with colds are MISERABLE.  We’ve been using that snot sucker thingie.. saline, etc.. but she is just pretty unhappy.  I don’t blame her!  And due to this I wasn’t able to get my color card up!  But now here it is in all its glory!

card7I really loved the soft feel of this picture.  We associate fall with lots of bright colors but this somehow stays subtle.  I LURVE IT!

Ok, onward to the tutorial!  I was playing around with my workspace and thought “Hey, maybe I could give a “tutorial” on how to do that..”  so here you go!

Ok, so that didn’t make any sense, did it?  I feel lazy because the Company Stash at P&Co went out and it is freaking gorgeous.  The colors are lovely.. and all I did was make a set of styles.  I had grand plans for the stash.. really grand plans.  What happened?  Life, I guess.  Between working on 5 things at once my plan fell apart.

But.. the good news is I have a brand new collab that is being released this coming Friday and it is GORGEOUS! :D

I did make a new template today for you guys!  It is a freebie so just click here to snatch it up!

Today I was on a podcast with the DigiScrapGeek Podcast!  It isn’t live yet but it will be next week and I had such an amazing time.  The women on the show are just so amazingly kind and made me feel super comfortable!  It was a blast!

In other news I have started creating tools for teachers on Teachers Pay Teachers.  

My mother in law and I are coming up with all sorts of ideas to get this part of Mommyish going full force.  For now I have a few papers and clip art uploaded but we have grand plans!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend filled with lots of Autumn Goodness! <3

I’m a little late in posting this but it wasn’t due to actually *being* late.  I had a dentist appointment today.. then afterward a guy rear-ended us.. and the baby is cutting 15 molars at once.. so let’s just say it has been a “fun” day.  The neat thing is while I was thinking about the tutorial today (which I couldn’t record yesterday due to the tree guys making a LOT of noise) an idea hit me!  What if I made stitching brushes out of CU stitching sets I already owned… and what if I added that realistic thread texture as a brush too?  What would happen?  EPICNESS IS WHAT HAPPENS!

Just watch!  I think you are going to LOVE this tutorial!

There needs to be some tweaking of the texture brush.  To achieve different effects I changed the color and blending modes.  For example in the example above the texture brush is duplicated 3 times.  Top is Overlay in Black, Middle is hard Light in White, Bottom is Overlay in Black and then the base is the solid color.  Play around with your layer blending modes and have a good time!
