Welcome to the Memory Works Spring/Summer Catalog Preview Blog Hop!
Now, onto my projects using the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm line!! For my first layout, I used a grid to arrange my photos and then designed around them. I wanted to save some of that adorable, multicolored chevron paper, so I cut an 8″ by 8″ square out of the center. It created a great frame around my photos!
See the stitching marks along the edge of the paper? I used my WRMK Sew Easy to make those marks >> quick and easy! The burlap string is by May Arts in available in short lengths and entire 400 yards spools HERE. I love the texture it adds to my projects and is perfect for cards too! I also added a few Studio Calico Wood Veneers 🙂 I’m also in love with the Simon Says Stamp Dies!! This cute little banner die cut is my favorite! You can even layer a couple papers at once and cut!
For my next layout, I went more mixed media / artsy fartsy!! I love using paint on my layouts. The effects are so cool! When ‘ombre’ became so popular this year, I knew I wanted to use the technique in my scrapping. So, out came my arylic paints (white and aquamarine) to create an ombre effect on this funky layout. The paint gets lighter at the bottom. Before the paint was dry, I sprinkled a bunch of little gold stars over it. These are the same “old school” stars found in schools. Next, I layered the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Vellum over the top of it after cutting it into a circle (I saved that center circle for another project).
The background paper says “love you to the stars and back” over and over again. This is something our girls and I say each night at bedtime. Sometimes they throw in some wild destinations and the plants too!
I used my old school alpha punches to create parts of my title, along with the packaging from the Flair Buttons. Recycle it baby!! I couldn’t resist adding a couple of the new Maggie Holmes Fabric Frames too! They are fabulous!!!
