Back to School Layout

Hello! I am really excited to share a layout that I made using Bo Bunny and Imagine Crafts products. Imagine Crafts is doing a fun collaboration with Bo Bunny this week, and I am really happy to be playing along. The paper I was given from was just begging to be used for a Back to School Layout, so that's just what I did.

I used a photo from my kids' first day of school for the 2014-2015 year. I fell in love with the Toy Box  papers I was sent. It's so bright and cheery. I decided to do a bit of embellishing on the main paper, which is called Toy Box Circles.

I chose some random circles and used the Goosebumps Dauber on them. I just pressed the dauber top directly on the circles to give a nice texture and sheen to some of them. After the Goosebumps dried, I outlined the outer circle with Tuxedo Black irRESISTables Pico Embellisher. Then, I fussy cut one strip f crayons (Toy Box Colors paper) for the side of my layout. 

I cut out one of the squares from the Toy Box paper that I wanted to use as my title for the layout. Since I wanted the title to follow the curve of the sun, I first laid out the letters directly on the sun without putting them on to my block. When they were arranged correctly, I just pushed my block on to the letters carefully, so that I didn't shift them at all. Then, when I inked them up and stamped them, they were placed perfectly! 

I inked up the mat that I created from the Toy Box Recess paper with some Pear Tart and Summer Sky Memento Ink. My tag was written on with a Memento Marker and inked up as well. 

I used some Tear It! tape to tack down the Divine Twine that I used from Whisker Graphics. The tag is from Whisker Graphics as well. This paper has really made me want to get more layouts made. I have so many pictures printed...and this Toy Box is perfect for a lot of them. So I will need to get scrappin'! Be sure to visit the Imagine Crafts Blog to see more fantastic projects featuring Bo Bunny. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
