Nerd Girls Weekly Digest
It is Summer!!! yay!!!
finally warmer and longer days are here, kids are finishing school, and many have already left for their cottages and vacations, I think after our long winter we were more than ready to start Summer. Thankfully this was the inspiration for this week’s projects for our DT, so let’s see what they created:
First up is Gisele with this beautiful layout that showcases Simple Stories’ Bliss collection. All the purple hues in this collection are beautiful. Gisele uses a combination of the collection’s embellishments in this 8.5×11 creation.
She used a mixture of fussy cut elements from the collection as well as some pieces from Pinkfresh Studio (The Mix2 collection ) to complete the look of this page. Simply gorgeous, Gisele!
Next up is Mari with a supper summery page:
Mari combined some mixed media (Vicki Boutin iridescent glaze, and DIna Wakely paints) to create the water scene of this page. She then used the Splash cut file (free at the Scrapbook Nerd store) to add a colorful title to this page.
All the embellishments from Dear Lizzy’s Stay colorful collection just add the perfet touch to this super fun page of her family enjoying a summer day. Beautiful page, Mari!
This week’s Tuesday Tutorial focuses on using patterns in the paper to create a focal point for your background.
Nathalie showed us this week how she transformed one of the papers in the Wander collection from My Mind’s Eye to create the focal point of this page. Isn’t that picture of her baby just too funny for words!!
She used a bit of hand stitching to bring texture and a bit of interest to a rather simple layout. Such a clever idea!
It is always fun to see what the DT has been creating and inspiring us with each week. Now it is your turn to enjoy your Summer, create memories, and then take the time to document them. Remember that Scrapbook Nerd has lots of new collections available (many are perfect for all those summer memories), so stop by the store to check all the new goodies available.
Thank you for stopping by!
