Today we are featuring two layouts using the Heidi Swapp September Skies. Candace & Karen were given pattern papers (all the same but one), banners and embellishments and asked to each create a layout. We love each of their pages and love that they're each unique despite having used the same product line. We also found it interesting that they were both inspired to use the navy dot paper across the center- great minds I guess.
We hate to see them go but that means more room for you! We have had a cancellation for this Saturday's ALL DAY Project Life themed crop and now have 8 spaces available to be filled by you. The main details are below or you can follow this link to see our original post. Call the store at 780-414-1540 to snap up one of those spots!
Kaiser Craft makes standing MDF shapes and in addition to their paper lines we carry a great assortment of these shapes & frames. You might be thinking... what on earth am I going to do with a standing pear? We got to work playing with these shapes and created a bunch of fun, some "cheeky", playful decor items using the standing pear. Below are 5 examples of how we made the pears work for us.
Standing pear still not resonating with you and your creative style and that is ok! Maybe a standing apple is more up your alley. Nadine created with this apple and featured a second grade school photo- how perfect for this shape. This standing apple is perfect for school photos, a teacher gift or even graduation. What about an addition to your kitchen decor? The creative potential is there if we can look beyond a wooden pear.
Last week we began a new feature where we take one line and show different styles of creating with it. Two design team members showcase the versatility of the pattern papers. We started last week with Kaiser Craft's Cherry Blossom and this week we are featuring Kaiser Craft's Blue Bay. These papers are gorgeous and Ginger & Karen both did absolutely amazing work!
We love these layouts, they are each so different despite the fact that these ladies were given the same embellishments, some same patten papers with the exception of the specialty papers. Ginger was given the die cut paper and Karen was given the gloss pattern paper. Each of these specialty papers is featured below. It just goes to show that these beautiful papers are so versatile and easily adapt to different styles.
Thank you so much to both of these ladies and a huge WELCOME BACK to Karen who took a brief vacation from creating for the design team. We are excited to have you back with us!
