Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?

“Do You Know The Colors Of The Rainbow?” is a song done by Signing Times (a great series to teach kids sign language) that just sticks in your head.  I was humming it while making this wonderful workshop from Studio Sus:

This one just makes my heart happy inside with the bright colors.  Best of all most of the product used in this workshop is on sale!  Best deal right?

 

This workshop is a nice mix of scrapbooking, cardmaking, with some stamping and thin cuts if you choose to do so.

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air

You can get two better topics together with the Appalachian Trail and Fresh Air paper.  It’s really an awesome “marriage”.  I’ve started working on our jaunts from last summer to see parts of the AT when my sister hiked it.  This layout is from the Studio Sus Fresh Air Workshop Guide (you can get it free with a $25.00 product purchase from my site).

Here are some close ups of elements from the pages.  I used silver foil paper rather than gold.  There is no stamping in this workshop.  It’s done from the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way and a few extras, like the Silver Foil (or Gold Foil) paper and a few extra embellishments I had on hand.

I’m finding that I use the Thin Cut alphabet more than I thought I would. It makes crisp, clean titles for pages.

 

This cute cluster is from the Fresh Air Compliments:

The wooden embellishments from Fresh Air Shapes are a nice change.  They add a lot to the pages.

June things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Have a creative day!

 

Rainbow Love

Rainbow Love

This sunburst card was inspired by our sale “Create a Rainbow”.  Did you see the price of a pack of rainbow cardstock?  Anyway, I can never have enough paper (well, my darling husband would disagree with me) and picking up a couple of packs lets me create some beautiful projects!  Grab your own pack and create this card!

 

 

 

 

Cut the strips 1″ by 5″ and 1″ x 7″.   Then you’ll cut those diagonally so you have several triangles.  The base for the sunburst is 5″x 3 3/4″.  The black base is 5 1/4″ by 4″.  Lay out the rainbow and glue down.  Trim off the around the edges and mat on the black.

 

Stamp the girl from the June Stamp of the Month, A Bushel and A Peck S1806.   Color in with Shin Touch markers.

She’s darling.  While SG would never wear a dress, she reminds me of her with the crazy hair and sweet smile.  =)  After you color, fussy cut out leaving a 1/4″ border of white.  Mount on black and fussy cut out leaving black border.  Mount in the upper right corner of the card using 3D foam tape.

Stamp the sentiment “I love you a bushel and a peck” on white cardstock and mount on black.  Adhere to the card base.

Add embellishments as you see fit.  I found some red enamel hearts and left over Florence Sequins to use.   Love to see your rainbow cards!  To encourage rainbow projects, here’s a great workshop you can get free when you purchase $25.00 of product from my website:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Enjoy a creative day!

I Love You A Bushel and A Peck

I Love You a Bushel and A Peck

I love you a bushel and a peck…and a hug around the neck.  SG and I say this to each other often.  The June Stamp of the Month S1806 A Bushel and A Peck is very sweet and all of the sentiments are wonderful.

You can use this stamp set in September for the apples and school starting.  The girl is sweet and can be colored any way possible.  As I look at it, the pie and leaves can go into November as well.  Nice to have a set that will be very usable year round.

 

Use the Shin Touch Alcohol Markers allow you to color, shading and highlighting as you desire.  Coloring this way allows you to add depth to your images.  I love the price point on the markers, making them an affordable option.   The marker collection is a wonderful way to get all of them.

Remember this wonderful saying because everyone you love in your life needs to know this.

Have a wonderful day and be sure to tell those you love, that you love them a bushel and a peck.

Let’s Go Fishing

Let’s Go Fishing

I love this card and one of my card swappers, DeAnn B, created it.  DeAnn did an amazing job.   Looks so very simple on the outside, right?  When you open it, you get this:

 

Don’t you just love it?  It’s so fun and unexpected.  I’m working on a diagram and another card to post to share.  All the products used are from the Fresh Air Collection.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my corner of the internet.  Hope you enjoy the “Go Fishing” card.  =)

 

 

You Are Here

You Are Here

Here’s a card using the Fresh Air paper and some of the new stamps available in the SE2.  The set I used works with the “You Are Here” Cricut Cartridge.  The Design Space file is included in the post.  The US is cut from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge.  The stamping done in Espresso along with the distressing around the edges of the map.

The sentiment above is in the You Are Here cartridge.  Below is using the font on the cartridge.  I cut it out three times, gluing the different layers.  The bottom layer is cut from the Espresso cardstock and offset to look like a shadow.  The technique is great, looks fantastic, but I don’t recommend it for mass production!  It might be drive you a little insane.

This is the stamp set, D1778 US Vacation used:
