July Guest Designer Projects

I have a bunch of projects to share with you today. I'm really excited to share them, too because they were all created for 2 guest designer positions and they are a few of my current faves!

First up is a group of projects I created using Pink Ninja Addicts SUPER AWESOME July Kit called Please play this song on the radio. This kit was loaded with robots and music inspired products, gorgeous ribbon and handmade flowers...oh my! This was THE PERFECT kit for photos of my boys! Just check it out!

Although this layout, My 2 Little Boys, has handmade fabric flowers and gems (from my stash), the colors and patterns drive home a very masculine feel.

here a some close-ups of the details




This one, Live Loud & Dance, features those super cute puffy stickers and hand cut star bursts! All of the music inspired products really carry the theme of this layout without coming off as too "themey".

I just love this picture of Donovan dancing at his school's Field Day.

I also created 2 cards using this kit. I used patterned paper and markers to give some color to the robots featured on this birthday card.


The guitars definitely inspired this card! I threw in a chipboard star from my stash.


I created one last project from this kit, but I can't share it until later this month.


This next layout was created for my Guest Designer position over at Making Memories. I used the beautiful Panorama Collection to create this layout, Countdown To Six Flags.


I liked the die cut stamp border and wanted it to standout, so I matted it on the back side of the
street map paper. I wanted to add journaling, but I didn’t want it to interrupt the design of the layout. I simply created a pocket for the journaling tag by folding down the top right corner of the layout, then folding a portion of it up and tucking the tip inside.


I adhered a ½” strip of patterned paper above and below the photos and added arrow brads along the length. Not only do they create unique little borders, but they help to lead the viewer’s eye around the layout.


I wanted to use a calendar to signify the actual counting down of days, so I stamped one on a die cut. There was a preprinted phrase on it that didn’t suit the theme of my layout, so I cut a strip of patterned paper just large enough to cover it, then added a more suitable phrase using the word fetti stickers.



The stamp is made by Imaginisce.

I am also excited to announce that I have joined the Gone Scrapbooking/Examiner.com Design Team!



Thanks for stopping by!!!
