Today is a free-for-all day for some of our layout designers, where they were free to scrap about anything they wanted too. We're going to give you a little Winter Wonder, a little Spring Flings & Easter Things, a little Lovey Dovey, and a little Christmas Wishes, all in one post! Let's see what our designers have for us.
"You Melt My Heart", by Vivian Masket.
I had fun creating embellishments for this page by handcutting elements (the snowmen from the Borders paper and the snowflake from the Cute Cuts paper) and combining elements (the punched circle behind my journaling combined with the Miniatures stickers). I turned my photo black and white, save for the carrot nose on the snowman. This allowed me to use the fun orange-y yellow color in the Winter Wonder line, and coordinating cardstock, as a prominent color in my design.

"First Fun Run", by Kim Arnold.
Who would have thought that a Spring/Easter collection would be the perfect collection to scrap about a fun run? Well, the fact that this fun run is held on Mother’s Day meant that it was just perfect! This collection is just so lovely and bright and was a pleasure to use.

"Absolute", by Sue Mylde.
The Lovey Dovey collection has always struck me as beautiful and I couldn't resist on using these beautiful papers on my daughter's recent photo close-ups. I love the ability of these papers to be layered and matched with one another. These papers offer a fun opportunity to fussy-cut flower pieces and I love creating clusters of embellishments to draw the viewer's eye to different focal points of the layout.To get a little contrast, I cut out the 'I Love You' arrow sentiment from the journaling stickers and also giving the layout a different perspective. I added some misting and paint to spice up the layout too. Getting messy is fun, isn't it?
