DT Projects @ My Scraps & More

Hey there, everyone!  I'm popping on this morning to share my July projects for My Scraps & More.  This month, Tammi sent us some fun Jillibean Soup papers -- two different lines (Chilled Strawberry Soup & Homemade 6 Bean Soup).   I created two cards and two layouts with it.  I'm not that great at making cards, and I don't know why.  I guess because there is no picture to work around...haha.

This line of papers is made of Kraft cardstock, and they are currently 75% off in the My Scraps & More store.  I knew I wanted to use the cute strawberry papers for a "berry sweet" card.  They were just begging to be cut out!

Each paper in this collection is so different.  I wanted to try a sun ray type of design, using all of them.  I'm not sure if I like all the different patterns up against each other, but I do love the colors!  See why I'm not that great at cards?

For this layout, I used the other line...and it's full of fun & bright colors--much easier for me to work with!  I splattered some pink watercolor paint all around the page and added a flower stamp.  I wanted to use these photos because the blue in Paige's outfit matches the blue in the flower nit picky is that?!  :)

I had to do a pool layout with all of these super fun & bright colors :)  I used a circle mask that I found in the home decorating section of Michael's...where they have all the stencils for painting on your wall.  I had to have it!  I wanted to incorporate the spool circle paper somehow, so I punch out some circles and added them to the misted pattern.

I've found one fun & easy way to use more of your patterned paper is to make a banner. I'm sort of obsessed with them :)

I appreciate you stopping by today! Thanks so much. I will be sharing a few pages I've been working on recently for challenges. I made some time to play this week, and I've missed entering challenges. I hope you have a wonderful day :)

  2. oooh awesome pages! That stencil is awesome! There is a Studio Calico one like that, but I like this one that you have, its a big bigger! Good idea on using those spools! I have that paper and never know what to do with it! Love your watercolor splatters on the first page!

  5. I am not a cardmaker either, Missy, but I think both of yours turned out fabulous!! I love the sunburst on the second one! And both of the layouts are adorable!! You always do such an awesome job of altering your papers and making them have that extra something!!
