Hometown Summer  
   

By Erica Rose Creates

What do you do when you have leftover punched circles from a previous project? If you are anything like me, you do not like to waste your scraps! Use those leftover circles and create embellishments with them! 

 

I have been working with the Fancy Pants Designs Homegrown Summer collection and had a bunch of left-over punched circles left. I decided to distress them and layer them up to create a cute little flower. For the center of the layered circle flowers, I added a wood button from the Hometown Summer collection

 

 

Instead of going with a 12x12 scrapbook layout, I went with an 8.5x11 size. I trimmed down a piece of the Fresh Picked pattern paper from the Homegrown Summer collection to 8.5x11. I then added a piece of white textured cardstock that I trimmed down just a little bit smaller than 8.5x11. 

 

 

I added the cute circle flower embellishments down the page in a fun vertical design. To keep everything flowing I kept the smaller embellishments along the same line as the circle florals. For my title, I pulled out some alphas from my stash that matched the blue in the Homegrown Summer collection. This layout is very simple but I just love how it turned out! The flow of the embellishments down the center of the page is so fun. I finished off the layout by adding my typed journaling. 

 

 

You can find all the Fancy Pants Designs Homegrown Summer collection in the A Cherry on Top shop HERE! This collection is perfect to document all your summer memories! Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Mixed Media Happy Accidents  
   

By Natalie Dill

Hi Cherries! Natalie here today using the new P13 Free Spirit collection. This is my first layout with products from P13 and they are SO fabulous! The quality is pristine and the collections are so unique.


 

I used Paper #01 from Free Spirit as my background and topped it with a smaller square of Bazzil cardstock.

The plan was to sprinkle a few mustard yellow splatters around the white cardstock, no gesso needed. However, you can view it in my process video below, but I had a little accident and the spray spilled on the gorgeous Paper 01. Never fear!  I turned that frown upside down and used the accidental splotch as an anchor for the velvet bow I was intending to place somewhere on the page.

 

 

I rearranged my photo and paper elements due to the bow placement, and I actually liked it better than my original idea! I encourage you to not be afraid of messing up your layout with mixed media because, with some creative thinking, the page can almost always be salvaged even if mistakes are made.

 

 

I used the We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board to make a couple of wood grain frames from the Simple Stories Woods Cardstock Kit. I also fussy cut some of the squares from the Free Spirit Paper 02 to create embellishment clusters around my photo.

 

 

Once those paper elements were arranged around my photo, I embellished them with a few of the round stickers from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet 03 from Free Spirit. I felt the layout still needed something, and I considered hearts because it was a photo of my husband and me on our anniversary. However, the Free Spirit collection is far from delicate, so I reached outside the box and used the Tim Holtz Gears Dies to cut from glitter cardstock and add to my embellishments around the photo.

 

 

A sprinkle of essential jewels in espresso from Pink Fresh Studio to match the color scheme and I called this layout complete!

 

 

I love trying a new company and finding a collection that inspires unique color schemes and themes! I hope you're inspired and encouraged to try new things and don't fear making mistakes. Happy accidents can improve a layout!

 

xoxo Natalie
