Hi there, it’s Caroline here. This month I’m working with the wonderful new collection by Amy Tangerine, Stay Sweet and I have three pages to share with you.
It’s a beautiful range with lots of pastels and a gorgeous purple shade running through it. I also found I was able to mix in some of my leftovers from Amy’s Shine On collection as well as items from her Journal Studio range.
For my first layout this week I used two 3 x 4 photos. Matting them onto white card to give them a narrow white frame. I selected my papers to complement the jumper in the photos. Using the Gumdrops Goodies paper and both the A and B sides of the Cosmic Candles paper. I decided on the placement of the papers on the background. Then removed them to apply some dry art crayon with a stencil brush through a chevron stencil to three areas of the page.
I stuck down my papers and photos to the page, overlapping the photos slightly. Then I picked two die cuts from the Journal Studio Die Cut pack. The ‘The Best’ circle die cut was perfect to go at the bottom left of the photos. I also chose a pretty dot frame, which I tucked under my photo slightly. Adding my title to the die cut with the rose gold Thickers from the collection. Finally I added my journaling below the photos and finished with three orange Nuvo Drops at the top right and bottom left of the papers.
I started my second layout by using Vicki Boutin’s Art Crayons and her kissing technique to add a watercolour effect across the centre of my white cardstock. Next I mixed some Iridescent Glaze with the art crayon and repeated the technique to add a shimmer to the page. I punched out a number of circles from four of the papers. My colour choice for these circles was influenced by the colours in my photo. I positioned them overlapping about two thirds of the way down the page to provide a grounding for my design.
Next I tore the edges of some vellum to create a mat for my photo. Stamping some phrases and hearts onto it to give it a bit more interest. I then placed my photo to the right of the page and used some Thickers to add my title to the left. I selected two die cuts phrase banners from the Journal Studio Die Cut pack which works great with this collection. To finish the page I added a fussy cut camera from the Picturesque paper and some Shine On puffy hearts. Finally adding my journaling below the row of circles.
Peek A Boo
My final layout is a traveler’s notebook spread. I started by choosing my photo and decided to print two versions of it for the page. Both the original version and a cropped version.
The first design I chose to use for this page was the Cozy Cottages paper. I cut a piece a little bit taller than my photos and placed it across the centre of my page. Along with strips from the B sides of the Popsicle Summer paper and the Eyes On You paper. This provided me with a place to position my photos, however I felt the page needed something a bit darker. So I cut a piece of plain black paper to mat my photos.
I kept my embellishment simple, selecting another of the round die cut pieces and a rose gold heart sticker from the Sticker Book. I added my title with the collection’s glitter Thickers to the bottom of my photo. Finishing the page with a strip of cameras from the Picturesque paper along the bottom of the page.
This page took quite a bit of rearranging before I was happy with it. Originally I was using a much larger piece of the house paper. However I felt it overwhelmed the page too much. Even though a full house is no longer visible on the page, it is still clear what the design is. I am much happier with this finished design.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing the new collection from Amy Tangerine, Stay Sweet, which you can find here. I will be back later in the month, with more layouts using this gorgeous collection.
Until then, Happy Scrapping!
