Use Up Those Scraps Layout!

Use Up Those Scraps Layout! 0

Stacy here!  
There’s something very satisfying about being able to use up paper scraps and leftover embellies that I have sitting on/around my scrap table.  That’s what I did with this layout.
 
 
I grabbed a bunch of paper scraps from different Queen & Co. paper packs (yes, I’m one of those people who keeps EVERY little scrap of my favorite papers).  I cut them into thin strips in varying lengths.  I lined the strips up in columns to create the anchor block for my photo.  Then I dug into opened packages of Queen & Co. bling still sitting on my scrap table after the last couple of projects and added a little pizazz to the paper strips.
 
I cut my photo into a circle, then I cut a slightly larger cardstock circle and crocheted around it to create a frame for the photo.  A few Queen & Co. flowers and die-cut leaves provided a nice little accent for the photo.
 
 
Stacy!
 
I hope you’re all enjoying your summer!

Love Presents? - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit 0

Hi everyone! Nicole here today to share a quick project using the June kit from Queen & Co.
Of course this kit is perfect for all things birthday, so I couldn't resist digging out some older photos of my daughter's first birthday for this project. The dies and shaker in this month's kit is perfect to create your own birthday package embellishments and the sentiment stamps are perfect to add a little sentiment on your projects.
The paper pad has a great variety of colors and patterns that are party ready - so perfect for both masculine and feminine projects you may have in mind.  I diecut several of the packages from different patterns in the paper pad and layered them together to create a different colored bow on the top of the package. I filled them up with the great toppings in this month's kit too! I love the variety of color choices that come in the kit too. Use one color or mix them up for a playful little package.
   
I was able to add in some other fun Queen & Co. embellishments into my project too! I added in some Pom Flowers to the top of one of the gifts, and scattered some White Iridescent Flowers throughout my page to finish it off.                    
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
