Lemonade Fizz anyone?

Recently I had 7 ... yep SEVEN cards published in Papercraft Essentials using the wonderful Lemonade Fizz collection from Polkadoodles.

So I thought I'd share one of my projects with you all. The full step by steps can be found in the magazine but here are some more close up photos (and a few brief(ish) instructions) ...

I have used one of the labels from the collection, imported it in to word and made it considerably larger. Using my scan and cut, I cut the design out and created a mat layer at the same time. This became the front of my card. I repeated the latter, created a hinge and made my card base.

I then printed off a page of flowers and leaves, cutting them all out. Next I printed further embellishments: heart, swirl and sentiment; again cutting them out.

I layered all the different embellishments around the sentiment, which I wanted to me the focal point. Finally a few flat backed gems added in complimentary colours.

It was fabulous to be asked to play with the collection again ... it has been a wee while! Lemonade Fizz is jam packed full, (with a wonderful selection of goodies), in fresh spring/summer colours. If you haven't seen the collection, pop over to the Polkadoodles shop and have a good nose.

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰ This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

A mini album made using the NEW keepsake from Tonic Studios - Life's Journey

On Wednesday, Jodie Johnson launched the new Life's Journey Keepsake Collection of dies from Tonic Studios on Create & Craft, which compliment the existing memory book dies. It was a huge success and sold out within the hour! I was very lucky and managed to play with the dies making samples for the show - well it was meant to be shows. For one of my samples I made a travel journal themed album with a male slant ...
