Hey my scrappy friends!
Over this past few weeks I've been getting all caught up on email/posts/stuff coming off of CHA/ and the DT call going on. If you haven't applied yet and want to, just a reminder that the open call ends MARCH 5th.
Today I have some delightful projects to share with you from Melissa. I hope you enjoy!
Hey, everyone!! It's Melissa here! I'm excited to be able to show the layouts that were made for the CHA Winter show this past January! I was assigned to do three layouts from the "Fun House", "Scandia Jul", and the "Material Girls" collections. Each and every one of them was so much fun to work with :-)
This first layout is using the "Fun House" collection by Tina Higgins. This collection has a lot of fun circus themed papers that can be used in various ways! It is also very easy to create some embellishments directly from the patterned paper! I used the Chip Art tool to emboss the word "BOY"; I used the appropriate letter for each chipboard letter and stamped it all over. A subtle way to add some texture to plain ole' chipboard!
This layout was completed using the "Material Girls" collection by Heather Tozzi. I adored the colors in this line! That blue is one of my favorite shades! And the reds & pinks & blues just compliment each other beautifully! I created the small paper flower by folding a strip of paper accordian style and then embossed a small chipboard circle with a heart and flower design and placed it in the center of the "flower". A nice pop of dimension and color!
I also used my stash of border punches to create the "stacked" look under the photo :-)
This last layout was done using the "Scandia Jul" collection by Rob & Bob! This is a super fun Christmas themed collection with a lot of non-traditional colors! I LOVE the pops of pinks and blues in these papers!
To create this layout, I cut out strips of various papers from the collection and weaved them together and placed them down on the blue card stock. Then, I took three chipboard hearts (there is a 12 x 12 sheet of chipboard embellishments that come with this paper!) and embossed them with my heart stamp using the Chip Art Tool. I layered them down along the bottom of my photo to anchor it.
I can't wait to see what you all create with these fabulous new collections from GCD Studios!!xoxo,
