Design Team Projects (Adora & Rhonda)

Here is what our design team has been working on!

ADORA - Scatter Joy mini album
'Scatter Joy' A perfect title for this mini accordion album I made. A fun day trip we had at the Lavender Farm Festival. These photos are few of my favorites on this trip. This is what I’ve created with the August Canvas Kit! I love that the kit is for a mini album. I just love mini albums, it’s quick and easy to make and it comes with the gorgeous Cherry Truffle paper
line. I really had fun putting this project together!

Supplies used are:
QQ August Canvas Kit
QQ Adhesive backed Glitter Diecuts
QQ Midnight Confession Powder Puff Chalking Ink
Recollection Stamp
Prima Flowers
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch

RHONDA - Footprints Layout
Aren't the mix of colors in the Cherry Truffle line just yummy? It's so rich and elegant. I had this sepia toned photo from when our little guy was only a few weeks old and thought it paired nicely with the line. I wanted to prove that you don't always have to use the color blue for boys. ; )

This paper is extremely versatile for most any project! I also just love the sweet tags that came with the kits!

To accentuate my sun shape, I added some accordion flowers and as an accent to my rub on quote, some baby feet stickers I have had for well over a year now. The quote: “This Day will leave the silent footprints of precious memories in my soul.” It perfectly conveys how I feel every single time I look at this photo. Something about how he is looking at me just makes my heart melt.

This is why I love to scrapbook.

Techniques used:
  • Created a few die cut shapes using Spellbinders Grand Calibur.
  • Stitched on the circle in gingham yellow with a fun stitch to simulate sun rays.
  • Used some light yellow acrylic paint to drybrush the edges of my paper and around my "sun" shape.
  • Also used the paint on my cream laser cut swirlydoo shapes.
  • Added little dots of stickles to the floral dots on my background papers
Other Products used:Non Kit items: Epiphany Crafts buttons, round 14 (2), round epoxy 14 (1), vintage settings (1), Ranger Stickles in Diamond, Crinkle Ribbon, Martha Stewart baker’s twine, Stick Pins, Jolee footprint stickers, Light yellow acrylic paint, Bazzill and Coredinations cardstock, Sewing Machine and thread, Journaling pen

Adora & Rhonda I love both of the projects posted this week! The way the yellow gingham is matted around the red & browns of the Cherry Truffle is my favorite idea. I just love the Cherry Truffle line displayed this way. The Scatter Joy project is beautiful and indeed reminds me of a summer day of fun! Thank you for sharing, Barbi Bartholomew
