It was really fun to be a guest DT for All Moments Remembered. Since the reveal was Monday, I can post my LO's. So, here ya go:
This one is all Heather Bailey stuff from Autumn Leaves.... and I really loved the paper. The rub-ons are Heather Bailey, the felt flowers are Prima & the clip is Making Memories noteworthy, the new line. The kit has lots of Noteworthy paper, too. I will be using that soon. :)
This paper is from Prima, the Dude Collection. Loved all the Dude paper, great for boys! I think embellies on boy layouts are the hardest, so I took another piece of the dude paper and just cut circles out of it. The circle is cut out from a Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine Journaling card. Orange chipboard letters are from Cloud 9 and the blue letters are AC Thickers.
This next layout was a real simple one for me, I didn't embellish like I normally do. It's more of my "work" style coming thru, my graphic design-ness if you will! LOL! I just cut a strip of Cosmo Cricket -Hello Sunshine- Over Easy paper for the half circle look. Then used the Heather Bailey chipboard flourishes from Autumn Leaves. I have to say, this stuff will not stick, even tho it's self adhesive. I had to run a glue stick on the back of these pieces to make them not fall off everytime I lifted the LO up.
The last piece I did for the kit was a card ~ again using Heather Bailey paper. I had done the card with the paper, the big flower and the rub-on over the stamped journaling circle... but, it was just not there yet. So, I let it sit overnight and came back to it the next day. I decided it needed something to pull it together, so I stitched around the edge. Then, I added the rest of the pretty green lace ribbon. (wish I had more of that!). It was getting better, but still wasn't quite there. I decided to use a couple of the green chipboard flourishes that looked like leaves, and boy did that help. I think the dark color helped pop the flower a bit, because it was getting lost on the pattern. Then the final thing I did, to sort of balance the bottom and top because it seemed bottom heavy, was I added the little knot and used a glue dot to stick it to the ribbon.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it! ;)
Let me know how you think I did in my first design team guest spot ever. I was so nervous. I had to follow the likes of Christine Middlecamp, Stephanie Howell, Karla Dudley and Danielle Flanders... those are big shoes to fill.
Thanks for visiting... have a great hump day!
