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!

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!

Star Wars Layout - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit

Star Wars Layout - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit 0

Hello friends!
It's Mary Ann Jenkins here again with a layout using the Pretty Presents June kit. My previous layout using the June kit was very girly with lots of pink, so for this layout I decided to make a boy layout to show you just how versatile the kit is!

To start my layout, I used the orange and yellow 6x6 pieces from the Pretty Presents paper pad as my photo matting, and added my cardstock title and stars. Next, I used the smallest present die to die cut 4 pieces from cardstock, these will be layered together to make 1 large shaker box present.


To make the large shaker box present, I trimmed off the bow design from each square, then made each individual shaker box, adding the toppings from the kit and black cardstock dots that I punched with a regular office hole punch. I adhered all 4 presents to my layout, making them in to 1 large box. I also added black cardstock bows that I die cut from another present piece.


To finish my layout, I stamped the "just for you" sentiment on to white cardstock, and used the left over center pieces of foam from the shaker presents to give the stamped piece a bit of dimension. 

I love the large shaker box present, and especially like how versatile this months kit is!

Be sure to stop by the blog tomorrow for even more projects using the fantastic June kit!
