Jillibean Soup | Gift Bags...

Hey Everyone! Here's a quick idea to create fun gift bags that I thought I'd share... especially since they can be used for Halloween as well!

These bags were created for the Jillibean Soup blog for Father's Day.

I played with a few design store cut files to create the sentiment and teamed it up with the Monster Stamp and Shaker Die.

Pebbles Inc | Guest Designer...

Hey Everyone! In July, I was asked to rejoin the Pebbles Inc blog as a guest designer! Of course I jumped at the chance to play along with my Pebbles friends. I was sent the new Oh Summertime! collection and it is simply divine!!!

I created three fun summer style layouts, one of which I will share with you today!

It's a special treat to get ice-cream for breakfast in our family, but it seems to have become a birthday tradition. Especially if your birthday is in January (our Australian Summer!).

Each element on the page was created using patterned paper. I love the chevron pattern to create a more masculine background out of these superb colours.

And the ephemera! Honestly, you just have to check it out for yourself. Visit the Pebbles blog here for more details.

JoAnn's Guest Designer | Park Lane Paperie Prairie Primrose

Hello Friends! Just popping in here to share another project kindly sponsored by JoAnn's Stores in the USA. Honestly, I am in love with the texture in these paper stacks. The foil and linen papers have me swooning! LOL!

For this project, I really wanted to play with mixing and matching patterned papers and printed cardstock. The paper stack used in creating this layout is Prairie Primrose.

step 1. Gather your supplies. The only embellishments on this page come from the gold foil thickers. Everything else can be found in the paper stack including the textured cardstock.

step 2. Trim cardstock to size. Trim the yellow gingham check to 8.25" x 4"; book text print to 8.25"x10.75"; and create a balance strip to cover the edges of the two patterned papers measuring 8.25" in width.

step 3. Fussy cut yellow roses from the linen floral patterned paper. Also trim a 4"x3" cut apart to create a tag. For the tag I trimmed the long sides by 0.25" and removed the top corners. Use a hole punch and a piece of twine to complete the tag.

step 4. Add you photo and start to layer the tag and fussy cut flowers. Add a title with gold foil thickers.

step 5. Cut nine (9) 2"x2" squares and curl the lower edge with a pencil. For more definition between layers, you could ink the edges with a soft brown.

step 6. Tuck the squares under the lower edge of the balance strips of patterned paper. The slight dimension from the paper curl creates interest and attracts the eye to look closer at the details.

Thanks for visiting here today. There's still more projects to come using the Park Lane Paperie paper stacks. Stay tuned...x
