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.
My scrapbook room has been buzzing like a hive as I’ve been working on creating a bunch of projects for Lisa Bearnson’s upcoming HSN show on March 24th. One of the fun, NEW products that I have been playing with are the Inspired Inc. Vellum Stickers (Item #307453). I can’t wait to share everything with you, but until then, here’s a peek at one of my projects that was featured on the HSN blog last week (click on the link for full instructions and step-by-step photos).
I think this would be such a fun, little gift to give to a teacher, co-worker, or neighbor as a small gesture to usher in Spring!
Be sure to follow Lisa’s Blog and Facebook page for more sneak peeks of upcoming products and set your alarm to watch “Papercrafting with Lisa Bearnson” on March 24th.
Have a creative day!
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!
