Happy Friday to my creative friends! The NEW March 2014 Noel Mignon “Wishing Well” kit is in my hands and today I have my first project to share with you.
Noel Mignon March 2014 Wishing Well Kit
FILL YOUR HEART
I took this picture of Camryn last week and it was the perfect colors to go with this new kit. I love that there is a big heart on her sweater … it goes perfectly with the quote on the wood card and inspired me to add all kinds of heart elements around the page.
Heart rubons in the corner (along with a sticker and a bit of washi tape) …
Shiny, gold hearts sprinkled down the right side of my photo …
And a cluster of die cut hearts on top of a doily. There is even a subtle heart pattern on the paper bag accent.
I kept the colors and patterns of this page soft and just had fun playing with the patterns and embellishments.
Enjoy your weekend! I hope you make some memories with your loved ones and are able to sneak in a little crafting time as well.
I have two amazing things to tell you about today! First of all, we have been showing you our projects on the 3 Birds Design Blog and many of you have been wondering when the new collection was going to be available. The first items of the Graceful Season collection are now up on HSN.com. Yay! Visit the 3 Birds Blog for direct links and a closer look at each item.
Next, a few months back I shared with you my projects using Lisa Bearnson’s Inspired Inc Top Layouts Kit. (See here, here, and here). I LOOOOVE this kit and have been dying to tell you the great news … Lisa is coming out with a second version of the Top Layouts Kit that will be featured on her March 24th show on HSN.
Want to win it before you can buy it?
Today on Lisa’s blog she is giving away both Versions 1 AND 2 to two lucky winners!
I have loved working with these kits because the design and papers are all ready to go. You can leave them as is, or you can add more to customize each page for your photos like I did. Here are some of the new designs in the 2nd version of the Top Layouts Kit that I have made.
To see more of more of my pages using this kit and to enter into the GIVEAWAY to win your own set of Top Layouts Version 1 and 2. Visit Lisa Bearnson’s blog HERE.
I’m up on the BasicGrey blog today with a new scrapbook page featuring BasicGrey cut files (available in the Silhouette store) and a cut file created by me! This is the first time I have created a cut file and I had a lot of fun doing it.
Other Supplies: Sewing Machine and black thread, White cotton string, Scissors, Trimmer, Adhesive, Foam Squares, Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine, Embossing Machine & Folder
The rainbow, banner shapes and icons decorating the balloons are BasicGrey shapes that are available in the Silhouette online store. The handwritten “Birthday” word and the balloons are cut files that you can download at THIS POST on the BasicGrey Blog or by clicking the icon below.
I love titles with mixed fonts and thought it would be fun to use my own handwriting in this title. I wrote the word “Birthday” on a sheet of paper several times using a black marker and then scanned it to create the svg cut file. It was fun! And I hope to make more in the near future.
Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!
This week on the Noel Mignon blog we are scraplifting the Noel Mignon members. I used the February 2014 Book of Love kit to create this Valentine’s Day page using a page by member, Lindsey Dixon, as my inspiration.
In the top left corner of my layout, I used a banner punch by EK Success to create a pennant from a 3×4 card (gray). I layered it along with a couple of banner stickers from the kit, stitched over the top of all three pennants, and then added a die cut paper doll banner. This cut file comes from the Christmas Cookie Party SVG Collection by SVG Cuts.
After cutting my strips for my page, I cut matching elements from the paper scraps to pop up on top of the paper designs.
For the title, I used another cut file by SVG Cuts. The XOXO title is actually a cupcake topper from the Valentine Cupcake Wrappers SVG Collection. I embossed the letters with my trusty Swiss Dots embossing folder.
Wishing you a creative weekend! See you next week!
