I was looking through my old photos and found this great picture of my kids from 10 years ago when we were playing at the park on a warm, golden autumn day. It was taken from above, as they lay down in the soft grass. It is fun to look back at those sweet round faces and remember the joy I felt being their mommy.
These fabulous gold transparencies and the "You are my Sparkle" title - reflect our happiness and love.
I love the beautiful blue paper from the Jubilee - Mint Julep collection, it almost looks like a watercolor. I cut a 9.5" square of white cardstock and sewed around the edges. I cut a striped piece of paper from Rhonna Farrer's Just Sayin' collection to 4x6 and placed the "You are my Sparkle" transparency over it.
Tip: use little dabs of the liquid Tombow mono adhesive behind the printed areas of the transparency.
I cut a 3x4 piece of the dark blush paper and placed the "&" transparency over it. I adhered the gold frame transparency over the 4x6 photo and cut a 3x4 piece of the triangle paper with gold glittered accents. I cut a thin strip of the blue and gold glittered stars to complete the square.
I embellished the page with a chipboard title and circles, sticker words, mixed bag die cuts, and decorative brads.
I finished off the layout with journaling around the page.
It is fun how the glittered elements from Just Sayin' work so perfectly with the beautiful gold transparencies from Jubilee - Mint Julep.
I challenge you to look through your old photos from 10 years ago (or longer) and document a memory through a layout. 😄
Hello! Valerie here. I dusted off my acrylic paint and have a mixed media layout to share today. I’ve missed my paint a bit, so it was good to get a little messy again. This layout made me want to throw out my to-do list and spend the whole day creating and painting instead.
SUPPLIESMy Mind’s Eye Just Sayin’ chipboard elements and mixed bag. My Mind’s Eye Jubilee Mint Julep 6x6 designer pad and Sherbet “Peace” sticky notes. Other: White cardstock, Silhouette Cameo (font: Alek & Verry Berry), acrylic paint.
After gathering some embellishments from the Just Sayin’ collection, I picked four coordinating paint colors: white, aqua, pink, and a lighter pink. I grabbed a sheet of white cardstock and started covering it with a large messy square of white paint. I immediately started brushing on the three other colors without giving the white any drying time because I wanted them to blend with the white. After letting these first two layers of paint dry, I went over it again with white paint to mute it down a bit.
I found a rose shape in the Silhouette store that I thought would go well with the Just Sayin’ florals and cut out a few onto white cardstock and then layered it over the painted white base. My title was cut from a 6x6 sheet from the Jubilee Mint Julep designer paper pad and layered over my largest photo.
I used a series of three of the same Jubilee sticky note to add my journaling to the page. I’m in love with all the layers! And doesn’t my boy look so sweet? He hopped right in these photos—no whining or sulking. That never happens!
So what is waiting in your craft space to be dusted off and used again?!
Greetings everyone! Tonya here with you today. I have had this photo of my daughter and I for a little over a year and it is part of the photo stream that comes across my computer screen. Every time that I see it, I think of the Jubilee Sherbet collection. It’s the colors and that purple background that do it! I decided that it was finally time to put these two together on a layout.
I wanted to break up the purple background a bit so I used a partial cut file from Silhouette that I manipulated and changed a bit by adding the hearts around the perimeter.
Then I just went to work adding little bits and pieces. Most of the items are from the mixed bag die cuts and the decorative chip board.
I’ve been loving the little bits of silver metallic in this photo below I snuck in a metallic heart. You can see on the title the metallic “life” and then I also snuck in two little rub on butterflies.
This collection has such a fun color scheme! It evokes feelings of happiness, joy, and sensations of a glorious spring morning! Thanks for letting me share a little piece of it with you today!
Hey there and Happy March! Missy here today. I have another “Use Up Your Stash” layout to share. Most times I start with a photo and then choose the papers and embellishments to go with it. This time I took a different approach and went through all of my older MME products and picked what jumped out at me. I chose the Now & Then “Izzy” collection. Then I just took a photo I had printed a while ago that was in the stack on my desk. I love how it turned out!
I chose a few papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad and the 3x4 Journaling cards to begin with. I created some layers for the photo, and then I decided to jazz up the background using stamps and decorative tapes. Before adhering them, I used some watercolor paints and gelatos to add a light aqua tint to the background. I still love the Cut & Paste collection’s stamps. Those fun arrows made a fun design along with several different decorative tapes from a few different lines. Some machine stitching finished off the background.
Supplies Used:Now & Then “Izzy”—“Boys” Dapper Paper, 6x6 Paper Pad, “Good Times” 3x4 Journaling Cards, “Dream Big” Alpha/Word Stickers, “Boys” Label Stickers, Flair Pins, Mixed Bag, Decorative Brads; Record It! Pretty Things—Decorative Tape; Record It! Just Splendid—Decorative Tape; Cut & Paste—Decorative Stamps; Sweetest Thing—Decorative Tape; Other—Crafters Workshop Stencil, Faber Castell Gelatos, Heidi Swapp Color Shine; Artist’s Loft Watercolors, Brother Sewing Machine, Coats Thread, Black Sharpie Pen, October Afternoon Date Stamp; Ranger Archival Ink
I added some of the fun die cuts from the Mixed Bag and these cute chipboard banner pieces. I love stitching them together like an actual banner. I also mixed the alphas in my title…using my Cameo and some really old Thickers. They matched perfectly! I really love that there are always so many different products in most MME lines, like brads, buttons and stickers. I always try and add a variety of those goodies to my layouts.
This film roll is adorable. I cut it in half so I could use the other half on another layout. It worked very nicely with these paper layers. Adding pop dots to my photo made it simple to tuck in some tangled thread.
Here’s the top cluster. I used my Tiny Attacher to adhere that cute “Today” tag on top of some tape. I also added a flair pin. I love the pop of green it gives.
Here’s a close up of all the tapes, stamping and stitching. Tapes make it easy and quick to add pops of color and pattern just about anywhere on a layout. I like to tear it so its uneven.
I hope this inspires you to pull out some more of your MME stash and create something awesome!
