Scraptown Lady Guest Designer!

Hello everyone! I was thrilled when Cheryl asked me to guest design for Scraptown Lady! I was even more excited when my box filled with scrappy goodies arrived! It was filled with the Prima Songbird collection, cardstock, ribbon and Prima flowers! What a yummy mix! The papers were so beautiful, I really had a hard time cutting into them! But once I did, the ideas were flowing! Look at what I created...

I thought these papers were perfect for these photos of my baby girl (Who really is not a baby anymore, she's 11!) I printed the photos with an antique filter.

The Prima Songbird papers are perfect for fussy cutting! The envelope and ticket were cut from one of the patterned papers. I used ink around the edges of the papers to give it a distressed, aged appearance.

The title, Lauren, was made from little tickets that I fussy cut and placed on a journal spot. I also cut the "beautiful" banner and adhered it using foam adhesive to give it a little dimension. I topped it off with some of that yummy ribbon that came in my package!

I added a little piece of cheesecloth behind this pretty Prima flower to add some texture.

When I finished the first layout, I had so much paper left, I just kept on going!!! 

I loved that the Prima Songbird papers had some youthful components that were perfect for this tween layout! (Yes, this is my daughter that was the little baby in the first layout!) 

I fussy cut the journal spot and brackets... they were perfect for showcasing the title. C for Cait and L for Lauren... the two girls should have been born twins, they are so much alike!!

I punched out these peach flower shapes and cut out the circle designs from one of the patterned papers for the centers. I also added some black detailing with a pen.

My favorite part from the Prima Songbird papers were these fun Polaroid type frames! I put a fun filter on these photos before printing them. 

And finally, my card....

I can honestly say, this card was made with scraps! I looked over my desk and found some of the scraps that were big enough to work with and this is what I created!

I love the birds on the banner! I fussy cut the circle and adhered it to a tag. I also inked all of the edges of the papers with some Prima ink to make them look a bit distressed. 

I want to thank Cheryl for inviting me to be a guest designer here at Scraptown Lady and trusting me with the gorgeous supplies! I really had a great time creating these projects! If you would like to see more of my work, you can visit me on my blog Crafty Creations! 

Have a great week!
