Sunday Market...

Sunday Market is a light and breezy line filled with birds and flowers that remind us all of summer days. Here is what DT member Heather came up with... The Glimmer Mist sprays against the white paper really show off the bold colors of Sunday Market. Don't you love the color pop of the new alpha colors... simply stunning. MLS is awesome in any size... look at this 6X12 layout. What a fun way to add dimension and layers in your album. Plus that fun heart and border punch from Fiskars is a great addition. Who loved those cardstock stickers?...

It's all about the flowers

Monday we asked what your favorite embellishment to create was at the end of our post as well as on our Facebook page and the majority of you said flowers. I have to agree that I too enjoy creating flowers from cardstock, fabric, tape and ribbon! Here's an adorable layout with our Summer Breeze line and a beautiful example of a handmade flower embellishment from one of our designers, Melanie. Love the glitter letters used to create that title! Let's take a closer look at her handmade flower. I love how Melanie not only used paper but fabric too! You...

Monday Sunday Market fun

It's had to believe that summer is over but this beautiful layout featuring our Sunday Market collection from Design Team Member Susan keeps us feeling warm and sunny! I love how she incorporated 4 pictures into her layout design. Many people struggle getting multiple pics on one 12X12 layout but Susan's design solves that problem. This layout using border punches creates a nice embellishment and adds depth to the heart cut out. I love the way Susan cut strips of pattern paper and then used a border punch to create a nice looking frame for her photo. Not to mention...

Sunday Market Altered project and card set

Today's adorable altered project with our Sunday Market collection was created by Pamela. How creative to re-use a jar and mount an altered birdhouse on top!

August-MLS-projects

And to add to the cuteness, a collection of cards to make this a fantastic gift idea.

Sunday-Market-Project-close-up-2

Here's a closer look at how the jar was mounted and those adorable flowers that were sewn like a border.

Sunday-Market-Project-close-up

love the glitter glue around the heart and the birdie

Sunday-Market-Project-close-up-3

I love the added touch the handmade flowers brings to the birdhouse.

We'd like to thank Pamela for this adorable project and we hope you're inspired to create your own! be sure and post it to our Facebook Fan page here so we can see your creation!

Tracey plays with Green...

We love it when our DT transforms papers to give them a completely unique look and that is what Tracey ALWAYS does for us.  Check out when she's done with the Green line, she even added some notes for you about each of her creations...

-1
“Live, Laugh, Love” Card


I LOVE the way the edging turned out on this card!  I simply used my Fiskars border punch on 3 sides and let the back side of the paper show through.  I added dimension with foam adhesive and some fun with my Sakura black Glaze pen.


-2
“My Nature Girl” Layout

I have been watching magazine calls and have noticed a trend toward “Quick and Easy” or “15 minute Layouts.”  As designers, we usually create projects and throw everything (and sometimes the kitchen sink) into our work.  It is really difficult to hold back and create a fun layout that can be recreated quickly.  This is one of those layouts.  I pulled out my “scrap stash” and started matching up some papers from the Green line.  This layout has color, dimension, distressing, and would only take a few short minutes to recreate.


-3
“Shhhhhh…” Layout

I have been pulling out my honeymoon photos and FINALLY (after 9 years) starting to scrap them!  One of the highlights of the Disneyland part of our honeymoon was lunch at Club 33… the private club inside Disneyland.  I wanted to create a layout showing that you don’t have to be afraid to use photos and other memorabilia on your layouts!  Here, I used 2 of our tickets and one of the napkins with the Club 33 logo.  Add in my Fiskars border punch, flowers, alpha stickers and Sakura and you’ve got a fun layout!



-4
-5

“Tropical Storm Barry” Layout

I really enjoy pushing myself creatively and trying new things and this layout is an “out of the box” layout for me.  I used 3 different papers from the Green line, my Fiskars punch, Tattered Angels and Sakura.    I used the Fiskars punch to make a border and then used the punched out pieces as accents around the page.  The Glimmer Mist helped give the layout a “beach” feel and the Sakura pens added the title, journaling and doodle accents.  I also love that I was able to get 7 photos on this layout!

 
Thanks Tracey for these amazing projects you knock our socks off!!!
