Pool Party Layout!

Pool Party Layout! 0

Hello, it's Mary Ann Jenkins here with a new layout to share!

I know we're in the middle of summer (at least here in the states) but I'm still trying to catch up on some of my kids' school activity photos. This layout does have a summer feel to it since it's about a day at the pool, but it's really for my daughters school album, and I'm happy to be crossing her first grade pool party layout off my to do list!!

This project actually started when I saw the Summer Splash Epoxy Icons, that cute little anchor piece seemed like it was made to go with my photo since both girls have an anchor on their swim suits. The rolling waves and that adorable whale were perfect to add in to go along with the water theme.

 
I used my die cutting machine to cut out various sized circles from my cardstock, added pieces of patterned paper behind some of the circles, and also added the Blue Skinny Glitter Tape behind a few of the circles too. The Glitter Tape really catches your eye!

Next I added a bit of blue water color paint that I borrowed from my daughter (ha-ha!) just splattering it here and there. After the paint had dried, I then added the photo and the Epoxy Icons.
 




To finish my layout, I also added some of the Blue Sequins from the Toppings Set, and a few of the Blue Pinwheels for a little more texture and shine.

I love all the blue embellishments mixed in together, they all look so pretty and sparkly!
 
Thanks for stopping by the Queen and Company blog today, we love to inspire!

Hi everyone,
Nicole here today to share a project with you. I picked up the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack to document some vacation photos to the mouse's house... but when I opened it up, I found some pretty b-side papers that are perfect for girly page!
It is almost hard to believe that these papers came from a Disney themed paper pad right! The pretty floral paper in the Around the Park mat stack has lots of colors in it, so I was able to mix in some papers from the Heart Throb paper pad as well as the Picture Perfect paper pads too. 
I added in lots of fun  Queen and Co. embellishment to the floral elements on my page too - some Sparklers, Sunflowers and even some Petite Posies, along with some dots from the Heart Throb kit.

Good morning!

Mary-Ann Maldonado here with a fun summery layout using two foam front shaker sets.  I also used almost every color bling I had for this layout too!  You are supposed to when you have a rainbow, right? 

I started by choosing four photos of a pool day and printed them to size.  Then I created the sunburst shaker and applied them both to the center of the layout.    

I collected all the color bling I had to apply at the bottom and top of the page.

It seemed a little empty, so clouds above the sun was the perfect choice!  I used varying colors to help them pop as well.  I couple white Pom added just a little fluffiness. 

So, I actually used three die cuts and two foam shakers.  I think it is fun to mix and match.  You should try it!

Here are the supplies that I used:

Cloud Pop Up Die, Sunburst Shaker Set, Windows Foam Front Shaker Kit, Picture Perfect 6x6 pad, Simple Stripes 6x6 pad, Flirty Florals 6x6 pad, Delightful Dots 6x6 pad, orange Iridescent Pearls, Green, orange and red Sparklers, blue, purple, yellow, pink, red, green Rivets, blue Pinwheels, turquoise Twinkle Drops, yellow Lollies, white Pom Flowers, Toppings: Tiny Bubbles, Diamonds, Pops, and Bright Pearlies

Hello Queen and Company friends,

It's Mary Ann Jenkins here with a new layout to share with you! This one focuses on a four-legged member of our family, our sweet little pup named Dixie Mae.



I love the Woof Epoxy Icons, so perfect to go with my photo! I added the dog house, "woof" and the cute little paw prints from the set, and still have more pieces left to use on another layout of Dixie Mae. The epoxy icons are so easy to work with too, they adhere just like a sticker.



Of course I had to "girly it up" a bit, so I added a mix of the Pink Blossoms and a few of the White Pom Flowers, and then placed some of the Pink Rivets here and there for even more pink color. I love how this turned out, and how fun it was to make, I think even Dixie Mae would give it a paws up!

Happy 4th of July! 

Today we are having our own explosion of fireworks here on the blog.  Loads of inspiration and a chance to win one of our awesome Trunks filled with all kinds of goodies. To be eligible for the grand prize (see below), leave a comment on this post.  For an addition entry, PIN the above collage image to Pinterest.  Drawing will be held July 5th.

One more thing!!!  Every order between now and the 4th will receive a random assortment from the fun Red, White and Blue grouping below.  


So, lets start with some incredible inspiration, shall we?  
Amy Sheffer has created a couple cards for us to celebrate this big day!

Stars & Stripes Forever

That American flag shaker element is actually the cake from the Birthday Shaped Shaker set! 
 
 
She trimmed down a white cake die-cut to a rectangle, filled the foam shaker with Red Diamond Toppings, and then added a small square covered in Blue Star Washi Tape. Then added a lollipop stick for the flag pole and topped it with some blue striped twine. 
 
Tip: The star sequins are more turquoise in color. To change them to a deep, royal blue, I colored over them with a dark blue Copic marker.
Home of the Free Because of the Brave
 
Amy created a fireworks display using a combination of stamped starburst images and red, white, and blue Pinwheels and Petite Posies. 
 
 
Susan Weinroth also played along with our Red White and blue theme with a stunning layout. She used her favorite photo from last year's celebration.  Her beach club puts up tons and tons of flags every 4th, and it's one of her very favorite annual photos of her boys -- She loves to take a shot of them in front of what they call "the giant flag"!!!


Instead of creating a shaker box with the Pop Up Stars, She simply layered them and added bubbles and rhinestone stars and stripes of Glitter Washi.

Supplies: Cardstock, Pop Up Dies - 4 Stars, Lines Glitter Tape Blue, Lines Glitter Tape Silver, Bubbles Clear

Megan Hoeppner has some fabulous fun cards to share as well!
In the US, July  means fireworks and bonfires and parades and BINGO at the town armory. It also means it's her sister-in-law’s birthday. She’s a yankee doodle dandy, born on the Fourth of July. A fireworks card seems in order.
 

She used various Queen toppings and liquid dimensional adhesive to create fireworks. 
 

It wouldn’t be a Fourth-themed post without a little red, white, and blue. 
She took the same taped approach here.  Whether you’re thanking a soldier, their family for their service or a party hostess this fourth, these cards are a quick solution to try. Hooray for washi. It’s the supply that stretches and makes crafting easy. Have fun!
 
Supplies Used: Glitter Washi Tape, Diamond Toppings, Sprinkle Toppings, Bitty Bead Toppings, Orange Epoxy Dots, Green Epoxy Dots, Pink Epoxy Dots

May your weekend be filled with family, friends, and crafty time!
