More Barcode Strips Projects!

Today Sarah de Guzman and Leah Farquharson share a few more layouts and cards featuring barcode strips!

Sarah Supplies: Jovial Paper (35398) - Hello Sunshine, Sunrise Borders (53185) - Thickers, Daylight (78048) - Details, Sunny Side (72010) - Delights, Sunbeam (72011) - Delights, Hello Sunshine Pearl Brads (85545) - Elements, Sunset Blush (53182) - Thickers

Sarah notes, "The patterned strips of paper add so much color to a layout! It's simple to create a layout with them. All you have to do is take the strips and layer them on top of each other. Then add a photo on top of the strips. Embellish around your page to make your layout pop!"

AC_may1 Supplies: Sweetwater Cabin Paper (35367) - Campy Trails, 12x12 White Cardstock Pack (71259) - AC Cardstock, Campy Trails Buttons (85536) - Elements, Twine
AC_may Supplies: 12x12 Kraft Cardstock (71464) - AC Cardstock, Campy Trails Buttons (85536) - Elements, Silver Lake Trail Paper (35346) - Campy Trails

"I always used to think that the little strips at the bottom of patterned paper was such a waste! I'm so glad that American Crafts decided to add fun coordinating prints to the bottom of each strip because it works great with all sorts of cards! Just by adding these strips, I was able to quickly create a couple simple cards. Besides, instead of cutting into a whole 12x12 piece of paper, I was able to save paper by tearing off the already perforated strip."

  LeahSupplies: Barcode strips from Hello Sunshine pattermed papers, Cedar River Trail Paper (35359) - Campy Trails,  Glow Paper (35408) - Hello Sunshine, Sunrise Natural (53180) - Thickers, Metal Rimmed Decorative Tags (85546) - Bits, Reinforced Decorative Tags (85547) - Bits, Fabric Brads (85544) - Elements, Pearl Brads (85545) - Elements, Good Morning (42194) - Remarks

Leah says, "I loved taking these photos of my sister for her senior year - I thought this one captured some of that sweet fun you still feel in your youth. I hope she knows that the world is hers for the taking and it's her time to shine! I had fun folding the barcode strips to make simple, fun blooms for this page and anchoring them in the center with a fabric brad. I really wanted the focus of the page to stay on her face as she bent forward into that giggle of hers so I kept this an uncluttered, clean page!"

Check back tomorrow for the winner of the giveaway and a few more great projects!
