June Sketch / Chickaniddy Crafts + a SNEAK of new collections!

Hello, friends!  I don't know about you, but I'm ready for a slow-down.  Today was the last day of school, and this week has just been crazy busy.  This busy-ness has really cut into my scrappy time...ugh!  That's how life is, I guess...always go, go, go, right?!

Anyway, today I'm sharing a layout I created for Chickaniddy Crafts.  I just love this month's sketch!  I couldn't wait to play with it.  I used the sketch "as is" and made hardly no changes to it at all.  I also focused on the gorgeous silver foil paper.  It cuts perfectly in my Cameo, so I decided to use it for the large circle in my background.  I used a messy circle file cut to really go bold with the shine.  I wanted to show how the awesome Chickaniddy products really pop against a black background, too.  These gorgeous colors from the Twirly Girly line are so fun and bright!  They're very versatile.   They can look soft and light or bold and loud.  I wanted this one to pop...just like the pictures of my little Silly Queen :)

Here you can see more of the silver looks fabulous against the pinks and greens.

If you haven't tried the foil paper yet, you simply must get your hands on it SOON!  It's amazing!  I used a little bit of everything on this page...the enamel hearts, the sentiment stickers, barcode strips, brads...I also cut this big red heart and embossed it with the Swiss Dots Folder and my Cuttlebug.

I used a bit of white Color Shine against the black paper, and I also used a bit of sandpaper to roughen up a few places.

I love all these fun colors together, especially against the just gives them a whole different feel.

And here's the sketch!  You can check out the blog post HERE to see how some of the other team members changed it up a bit.
