Spring is in full swing!, and i was inspired in the change of season (colors are starting to show, flowers are blooming, weather is warming up, and no more boots! -at least in my part of Canada-) to create colorful projects for my reveal week, this month. Here is a review of what i was inspired to create:
- PERFECT SMILE – The beautiful triangle pattern in the Joy Parade collection -by Fancy Pants Designs- was the starting point for this layout. The inky background, and the color combination were just a welcome compliment to a super fun picture of some of my family.
- SPLASH – Blog Post tutorial on Distress Oxides – I love playing with different mediums to create backgrounds for my projects. This time, I chose to use the new Ranger’s Distress Oxides to create the illusion of splashing water in a layout. In case you missed it, there is a small video that shows how the background was created (just go to the previous post)
- LOVE WHAT YOU DO – For this layout, i chose a large hand stitched title, the new distress oxides, embellishments from Simple Stories Faith collection, and papers from Echo Park’s Just Be You collection to document one of my favorite hobbies -photography-.
- AMAZING – In case you have never seen pictures of my family, we are in love with our 3rd baby, a 6 yr old Boston Terrier named Poochie. Once I saw the doggie die cut piece in the Chit Chat Chowder collection by Jillibean Soup, I knew that i would be coming home to my desk. Here is one of the layouts, I have created with this collection (and in case you have extra doggie die cut pieces you are not using, I would love to add them to my stash!!!)
I really hope that this array of colors, textures and designs inspire you to visit the Scrapbook Nerd store to check all the new collections that are always being added to their shelves. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions on how any of these came together.
Keep on Craftin’!!
