Today I have another layout to share with you that I made using the South Shore kit from Noel Mignon.
I really liked all of the bright colors and fun patterns in this kit.
Just like I often do, I toned down the background by mounting a piece of white cardstock on top of the background paper. I added some splatters of spray mist and cut lots of randomly sized pieces of patterned paper and layered those on my photo.
I used a Fiskars buttefly punch to create the butterflies from a variety of papers from the kit and stapled those to my page and then lifted the wings to add dimension and an element of fun.
There was quite a bit of excitement in the scrappy world when word was released that Heidi Swapp had partnered up with Becky Higgins and Project Life.
Lots of fun kits and other embellishments have been made available at Michael's stores and I happened to snag one of these one day while in the store looking for birthday party decor.
Here is a quick and simple layout that I made:
I kept the page VERY simple, using a couple of the 4x6 cards, some sequins, American Crafts Thickers, embellishments from the PL kit and some gold scallop tape from the new Pebbles Jen Hadfield Home+Made line.
I cut the heart out of the center of this striped card and saved that for a future project. The center was filled with a variety of sequins from my stash. The spray mists are from Heidi Swapp and Studio Calico.
I think that Project Life- style scrapping is a great idea but I haven't yet started using the cards in a pocket format. I have used quite a few on traditional layouts.
I have been so excited about being part of the new social media team at Fancy Pants!
Last week I pulled out this older collection, "Be. Loved." to play with again while I waited for my design team box to arrive and here is what I made:
I used my We R Memory Keepers punch to cut out the 3x4 pieces for the background, used some of the border stickers at the bottom of the page, added some cork hearts and a few of the sequins from the brand new Oh Deer! collection (my box came as I was finishing up this page ♥)
Now that my box is here I am ready to get to work with the new collections and will have projects to share with you soon.
It is bittersweet- I love having them home, love getting to spend time with them and know that time is in no way slowing down so it makes me sad that the time is so short. On the other hand, they are getting on each others' nerves and mine at times because sometimes too much family togetherness isn't the best thing. I do love my kids and will miss them so much today.
Little Lily is about to have her world rocked a bit, too, since she's used to having all of her big sisters around all of the time.
I used my Silhouette Cameo for both layouts and filled in some spaces with papers and embellishments from the Aurora line. I really like the color combination of the blue and coral mixed with the purple. The star background papers are my favorites!
There is so much variety in the embellishments from this collection- from tile alphas to wooden accents, frames, transparent and cardstock pieces and resin flowers. It really is a beautiful line.
I cut the circles on my Silhouette Cameo and then cut/punched the other circles and lots of butterflies which I then added to the circle there on the left. I used punches from Fiskars (largest butterfly) and Martha Stewart. The white and gold twine is something that I picked up a while back from a Target dollar spot.
I will be back soon to share my other Vivienne project along with two using the cute new Aurora line.
I have a couple more projects to share with you using the beautiful new collection from Crate Paper called Notes & Things. In case you just really love this collection make sure to check out the Crate blog today because they are supposed to reveal a brand new Maggie Holmes collection that is sure to be gorgeous as well. I saw a sneak of it and it is just as beautiful as her collections always are.
Anyway, here are a couple of cards that I made for my article over at The Scrap Review.
The premade journaling cards, tags and stickers in this collection make it easy to create projects with lots of texture and detail. I stuck some foam adhesive under the bottom left edges of the little flower to make it stand up a bit and added some gold sequins to the pocket card.
Have a fantastic day!
Tomorrow I will have some BasicGrey projects to share that I made for the reveal of the new Vivienne and Aurora collections. You will love those papers and coordinating embellishments. They really did an amazing job creating these two new collections ♥
I was so excited to get to play with the new Crate Paper Notes & Things collection for an article for The Scrap Review. It is gorgeous and easy to scrap, just like Crate is known for.
Here is a layout that I created. I also made a couple of cards that I will share tomorrow.
I started out by building the page background using a few paper strips on the right and then added my favorite spray mist- Studio Calico Mister Huey in Dewey. I put together the tag accent on the left and added some chipboard frames. The big pink arrow is from one of the journaling cards.
The Notes & Things collection has such a great variety of embellishments, my favorite of which were these layered butterflies.
