Fuse It Fun Day-Little Prince

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here, especially on such a fun weekend! National Scrapbook Day is always so much fun! Have you hopped over to Instagram to check out all of the fun challenges the Sparklers have for you? My challenge is Star Shine- make stars shine on your layout! And that is exactly what I did! Here is my Star Shine layout, the gorgeous Gold Stardust Sequins make this challenge super easy! I also added some amazing Cork Confetti Stars from some shiny gold thread!

One of my favorite elements of this layout is the shaker bow! I have always thought the Fuse Tool is so cool, but I don’t do Project Life, so I didn’t think I would use it often. Well, I finally got one and I am absolutely loving it! I use it so frequently, I wish I would have grabbed one sooner! In the spirit of loving my Fuse, I am going to be showing you how I use it every Sunday Fun Day with Fuse It Fun Day! For this project I used a bow template and created the little shaker bow! I filled it with those gorgeous Gold Stardust Sequins, and isn’t the result just the most darling little embellishment?@dearlizzy @shimelle @cocoavanillastudio @spiegelmomscraps #corkconfettistars #goldstardustsequins #shimelle #cocoavanillastudio #dearlizzy #spiegelmomscraps

If you wanna see how I made the shaker bow, here is a quick tutorial on how to do that!

Another element I adore are the hanging cork stars from the Wild at Heart frame! Super quick and easy, but so much fun- and, it’s all in the details! Right?!

Aloha Sparklers!!

I don’t know about you, but I have a tons of 6×6 pads hanging around in my stash. There was a time when that was all I was buying, I had 12×12 sheets of the same paper too. I love 6×6 paper too. The prints are a smaller scale, which is nice when you are layering. Also sometimes when you layering a smaller piece just fits better.

I have this obsession with mixing my old stash with brand new supplies on my layouts. I recently bought some new Crate Paper paper, which is perfect for this layout about my kids love for playing video games. I really love that the colors aren’t very girly. Flowers and bows just don’t look right on a layout about video gaming, not that I need to use all themed products.

It is fun every once in a while though. Like what I did with these old vellum video game pieces from Crate Paper Boys Rule (from a couple of years ago). I added the Magical Day in the Park sequin mix on the vellum pieces like it was shooting onto my layout.

I just love how cool that looks.

I used my old 6×6 pad papers that had similar colors, (I looked for the blue family), and layered them behind of my photos. I used two 3×4 sized photos. I love the way they looked layered over top of each other. and then all the patterns peeking out from behind them.

I added a little bit of Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Gummy Bear Blue on my white cardstock background. Because the Crate Paper has a more cream tone to it, I like to use more white in other places so my page doesn’t seem as vintage with that cream tone. For a layout like this it wasn’t a look I wanted, cream that is. The Dazzlerz, helps add a bit playfulness to the layout, that I wanted to tell with this layout as well. I am always thinking about ways that my story can be told through the products I am putting onto my layouts.

I found tons of fun ephemera to tuck into the layers!!

All the different shapes of sequins in this pack really made this layout so much fun!!

I used both blue and black colored alphas like I did in my layers. I also really wanted my title to tell about what my journaling will be about. Which is how my son, loves videos games. He loves to watch everyone else play the games. He gets so excited while he watches, almost like he is playing, but he won’t play at all. LOL!! Gotta love our kids silly antics!!

I hope you had fun today!! Don’t forget to pull out those 6×6 pads out or some stash that has been sitting in your craft space. I find adding something new and fun, like this fun sequin pack can make an older collection much more current feeling.

Have an inspired week!! Can’t wait to see you here next week!!!

Here is one last look at the whole layout.

More He Said, She Said

Here’s a little more He Said, She Said!  These are my cards from the March Memory Works Express Kit.  I really enjoyed using these papers… so many different patterns, so many possibilities!

Wanna make this easy paper flower??  Just punch 4 circles (I used my 1 1/2″ Fiskars Squeeze Punch) and crumple them up.  I inked the edges and creases with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, then began to fold 3 of them in half unevenly.  You can play with this a little until you get the look you want.  I folded a small section inward and then folded it over again.  You can see this is the photo above.  Secure the 3 folded circles onto your 4th circle using glue dots or other strong adhesive.  I punched a smalled scalloped circle for my center, also inking it up.  Add a few stickers for an easy greeting and there ya go!

Thanks for stopping by!  Don’t forget to hop over to the Memory Works Blog for even more inspiration from this Fab{U}lous & Awesome Express Kit!
**** News flash!!  The Memory Works Spring Fling Blog Hop will be Tuesday, April 17!!  Stay tuned for more details coming soon!!
