Summer Fun

Fun colours and fun embellishments make this a ....FUN page. Cut
different size circles and layer them on your background page.
The sunglasses were cut and matted in two different colours and
decorated with brads and gems.

Double and even triple mat your photos for effect.

Just Being Me

Sometimes a simple title can be all the journaling you need.
Rub-ons are always a great way to embellish a page.
The photo on the right was double-matted and ribbons were
folded between the two mats.

Using these word cut-outs just adds to the journaling. Some were
raised with foam-core for a bit of depth.

Girl Time

We used lots of layering of different pattern paper for this page. 
Because you use so many different papers ( you can even use your
offcuts) you really dont need many embellishments.

      
The orange striped paper used here came with the cut-out motiffs
but you can use a stencil or freeform cutting to achieve the same effect.
Brads,Tags,envelopes and a few flowers were used as embellishments. 
The frame and bracket symbols were cut in chipboard.

You Rock - Guitar

We had so much fun creating this piece. Paint,stamps and rub-ons were used on this wooden guitar.
Perfect gift for a girl or boys room whether they play guitar or not. Funky and fun!




Flower rub-ons were used and then to add dimension a paper flower was used on top of the rub-ons.

This saying was stamped with gold paint and a cutlebug die was used for the butterfly.
Ribbon was used to represent the strings.

In Love

  

The photo was printed on a transparency and matted on white cardstock.
The hearts were made using a cuttlebug machine.
Here we matted a pocket on brown cardstock and slipped the photos in the pocket.
Great way to use several photos in one space.
We cut the paper and folded back the edges to make this frame.
