A Simple Layout

I got to play with my wedding album today.  I created this simple layout of our Best Man and Maid of Honor (my stepkids).  This page was obviously very easy to create - sometimes we forget that less is more.

Entering my layout for Challenge #45 - Anything Goes at Not Just Cards Challenges.

A Fun Layout with Boy and his Toys

English Lady - Paper Ala Mode

I have never seen more beautiful digital papers than We Are 3 - and I love to mix and match!  I love the color palettes and the subtle patterns.  I literally gasped out loud when I first laid eyes on the many watercolor patterns.  For my design using English Lady for Paper Ala Mode, I could not wait to print her on papers from the Romantic Garden Collection.  For background papers, I used Bird's View and Nature Blends.  The current challenge at Paper Ala Mode at the Outlawz Challenges is "unusual fold," so I created an accordion-fold card.  I had a great time making this card!

My Nephew - A Star of Hover Adventures

Hello, Everyone!

I've been on vacation in Colorado - took a little time away from the screen.  It's amazing how being retired is just about as relaxed as you can get - yet a few days away is still much appreciated.  At the Outlawz before I left, the Monday Greetings challenge was "Get Sporty."  I'm not sure using a hover board can be considered sport - but my nephew's birthday was yesterday, and his birthday wish from everyone was for cash to go towards a hover board.  So my card shows my nephew as the king of hover adventures.

Funky Cakes

I really love Glitter Ritz - but so seldom take the time to design with it recently.  Outline stickers and fine glitter can be used to create fun themed cards with sparking images.  To create this set of cards, I used Funky Cakes outline stickers and Watercolor Batik digital papers (We Are 3).

Dreamy Creamy Single-Layer Cards

Hello!  Happy Tuesday, Scrappers!  It's time for another Art Abandonment.  Today I'm sharing some fabulous simple ideas for single-layer cards.  I got this beautiful inspiration by a Featured Stamper at Splitcoast.  Admittedly, her card was mixed media with a fun inked background - and I used digital papers.  And I'd guess she used masking to add her floral image - and I used digital images.  Nonetheless, I was amazingly inspired by her work to create this set of cards to be abandoned during our vacation later this summer.

The background papers come from the Dreamy Creamy collection at We Are 3. (My camera added a yellowish tint.)

It's All About the Gown

Sharing a layout using products from We Are 3.  These papers are so much fun to use.  This is my wedding day - my dress designer (TKO Designs) and seamstress came to help me get dressed and to make sure I looked my best in their very gorgeous gown.
The vertical strip on the side was inspired by the Challenge #117 at Creatalicious Challenges - Using a die or punch.  I used a border punch for the two narrow strips.

It's difficult to see the detail in my background - but I used Burlap Beach for my background and Nature Blends for the watercolored borders.
Please check out We Are 3's Facebook page to see more designs using digital papers - you can check out other beautiful papers and images at the We Are 3 Etsy shop.

Awesome Watercolor Batik: June Release

I decided to make some card gift packs to abandon when we vacation later this summer.  This set is full of leaf images perfect for simple accents on the cards.  I used the Watercolor Batik collection (We Are 3) for the leaves and side accents.  Sentiments from All-Occasion Sentiments were printed on solid blue paper.  To complete the cards, I added a yellow border from the Wild Child set (SVG Cuts).  This border is perfect for adding a little accent.
