It no secret that the fabric trend in scrapbooking is pretty hot. A lot of paper companies are having their designs turned into fabrics. But I know of someone who did it the other way around! Her name is Amanda Herring and she is a fabric designer. She was looking for a paper manufacturer that would turn her fabric prints into printed papers, and Bazzill
came to the rescuse! :)
How we came to meet up is a bit of a long story...kind of a friend of a friend type of thing, but anyways, here we are and I couldn't be more excited!! Amanda has asked me to do some projects with her new paper lines and share them on our blogs! Her blog is The Quilted Fish
, and you will find tons of great fabric and sewing ideas on there!
I will be posting some projects over the next four weeks which I hope inspire and encourage you to start playing with these beautiful papers.
OK, so now onto some goodies that I created with the wonderful wonderful products that Amanda sent to me! I got to play with the Divinely Sweet and Holiday Style lines.
This was the first page that I created. I wanted to show that the Divenly Sweet papers work just beautifully on a page about a boy! I love the turquoise and red color combo.
I misted a border with a cream color mist on the background paper and then added some faux stitching with a black pen.
I fussy cut some of the flowers from blue paper to match with the background of the cream colored paper.
I also wanted to add another color, so I added some splashes of yellow paint and I stitched with some yellow thread.
Part of the journaling is hidden under the tab that says "What Can I Say?" and pulls out from behind the photo. I loved that I was able to make these papers look so boyish for my little guy!
And lastly I will leave you with two fun cards. I'm not much of a card maker, but I go through some spurts here and there. My stash was getting low and since World Card Making Day was October 1, I really was inspired to get some done.
This first one I just splattered a bit of black ink, did some faux stitching and made some simple accordian flowers. I made a little gift tag to go with it, too!
And you can never have enough birthday cards, so I cut out a cake and pop-dotted it on som white lined paper and added some Stickles to make is sparkle. Stickles make everything prettier!!
Thank you so much for joining me this week and I will be back next week to share some more projects! Until then, you can check out my blog
to see what other things I have going on!
