Grateful For You

Posted on June 25, 2014 by

Hello, Becki Adams here today to share a card with you that I created with the June Main Kit. I created this card using the die cut pack from My Minds Eye and the 6x12 Sticker Sheet also from My Minds Eye. I think this card took me 20 minutes to create, at the most. The part that was the most time consuming was machine stitching around the edges of the card and even that only took a couple of minutes.

There are some adorable sentiments, perfect for cards on both the sticker sheet and in the die cut pack. Make sure you create a few cards with those sentiments and a few scraps from your kit.

A Little Rain

Posted on June 23, 2014 by

Hi again, Paper Camellia fans! It is Malika here today with a layout that just sort of came to be! I love when that happens…. not a whole lot of planning, but a layout that easily falls in to place! I loved the subtle sun burst on this piece of patterned paper found in the June Main Kit. I knew I wanted to use it as my layout background and figured I’d be adding some other patterned papers to it. As I worked along, I started gathering blues and golds in embellishments from both the Main Kit and the Add On. I scattered them around my photo and decided I didn’t need any more patterned paper. I used my sewing machine to stitch along the edge of a handful of the sunburst rays…and wished I had thought about stitching before I had started sticking things down… but oh well! Sometimes I like to make my journaling my title. I didn’t have much to say about this picture. I just liked it and wanted to document this every day moment.

A couple of close ups… I gathered stars up here on the right hand corner

And the circles seemed to gather down on the bottom left side…

And just like that, it came together! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Hello! Jennifer here to share another layout I created with the June Kit! I was able to use up some of my scraps to create my page!

Using strips of different patterns from the Main Kit, I cut one inch pieces and adhere to the bottom of my cardstock. I then adhered a strip of the gold/white stripe pattern across the top and stitched through.

Using my hand punch, I also added a few pennants to the top of my page. I then added this cute Heidi Swapp Acetate heart from the Embellishment Add-On kit.

My title is also from the Heidi Swapp Acetate Words. I adhered it over one of the Heidi Swapp Craft Tags (from the Add-On kit), and then added enamel dots and chipboard stars (both found in the Embellishment Add-On).

Here I added one of the Chic Tags Gold Foil Label Stickers along with a chipboard heart from MME's Market Street.

Thank you for reading! I hope this inspires you to use up some extra scraps you may have lying around! Have a wonderful day!

Jennifer

Always

Hello friends! Jennifer here today and I'm excited to show you a layout I created using the June Main and Embellishment Add-On kits! I cannot get enough of all the gold goodies in this month's kit! My favorite has been the gold dot vellum page: I used a large piece as part of my background behind my photo. The gold compliments nicely with the bold colors of My Mind's Eye's Market Street.

I used one of the Heidi Swapp Acetate Word Stickers as my title. I then added a few of the Market Street enamel dots, a gold arrow from the MME Necessities line, and a chipboard heart from Studio Calico. All but the arrow can be found in the Embellishment Add-On kit.

I layered two of the patterns from Market Street and added a cute gold starburst from the Ephemera Pack. I then added a few more enamel dots; I love the variety of color in this pack!

I love the chipboard pennants that come in the MME Chipoard buttons! I added them to the upper corner of my page as well as added one of the sentiments from the Ephemera Pack.

 

Here is another chipboard pennant that I added to the top of my photo.

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure the check out the Paper Camellia shop to see the June kit plus Add-Ons! Also, be on the lookout for sneaks of the July kit! Full reveal will be July 1st!

Hi! Ria on the blog today with a beautiful layout by Becki Adams. Becki used the June Main and Add-on kits to create this simple, yet elegant design. 

Love the frame Becki created with ink around the edges. The  gold  touches and the fun embellishments really make this one of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Crazy Do

Posted on June 10, 2014 by

Hello Paper Camellia blog readers… It is Malika on the blog today. I used the June sketch for today’s layout. I love how then main piece of patterned paper was cut up in to 3 unequal parts. I decided to use the piece of striped patterned paper as this broken up pieces and then stacked another couple of papers on top, along with my photos. Though it is difficult to see in the pictures, there is a piece of gold polka dot vellum underneath. Printed vellum is one of my favorite layers to work with. It is super fun to stick it partially down and have bits and pieces show through. You can add a lot of depth to a layout by only adhering parts of your layers down. You can see that the corners of these patterned papers are not stuck all the way down.

Here are a couple of close up pictures. I embellished with lots of little bits and pieces along side my pictures. I liked the tiny little number 8 sticker because that is the age of my son. I also loved how the stripes of the polaroid camera ran the same way as the stripes on the patterned papers!

I made my own journaling spot by punching a circle and hand drawing some lines.

June Sketch and Challenge

Hi! Ria on the blog to day with our June Sketch and challenge. This month we have a fun sketch designed for us by Kristine Davidson and a layout based on the sketch from Jennifer Haggerty.

Here is Jennifer's lovely interpretation of the sketch...

Jennifer used the June Main kit,  Add-on and Embellishment Add-on for this layout. Gold was infused throughout the June kits, and Jennifer used it beautifully on this layout.
