This month I am privileged to start my stint as a designer with the The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington. As my first assignment, I was lucky to work with My Mind's Eye's My Girl line. I was a little nervous at first, wondering what in the world I was going to do with all of these busy papers. But, the truth is, once I started, I loved them! They are so fun to work with!
First up, I did this card. the background is a craft-core cardstock that I embossed with my Cuttlebug and then lightly sanded to bring out the hexagon pattern. All of the embellishments are from the My Girl collection, I simply strung a piece of orange and white baker's twine through the button holes.
Second is a one page layout. The background is a piece of gray cardstock that I sprayed with pink mist. The ruffles along the bottom are simply punched circles that I layered. The camera cut out is just one of the many adorable cut outs in this line.
This one paged layout was done my using a few different patterned papers from the line. I cut the chevron paper to make a fun border. The bicycle is from the many chipboard pieces available. The butterflies are actually white that I misted gray and added a piece of baker's twine for color.
This was the most fun for me. I started with a raw chipboard sign and then covered it with paper using Mod Podge and then added a bunch of adorable My Girl embellishments.
I am really happy with the way these turned out. I wasn't sure I would be able to hang with the awesome designers at The Scrapbooking Studio, but I think I did okay. ;)
My last post was also from the My Girl line, check it out!
