Mixing Paper Pads!

Mixing Paper Pads! 0

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.

Hey Queen and Co. fans!
Nicole Nowosad here and I am excited to be here today with a project using the June kit! I love the bright colors in the 6x6 Pretty Presents paper pad in the kit and used it as my inspiration for this page.
You can see that I chose several different papers from the paper pad and diecut them on my digital die cut machine in similar designs, but varying sizes. I added them across a neutral cardstock background and then the fun begins!
 I added different shaker fillers from the June kit to the center of some of the larger flowers.
The process is so easy to do, and the topping fillers are perfect for adding texture to simple diecut embellishments. I love the chunky look of the fillers in the center of those flowers! Fun and super easy.
Check out how the whole page came together in this process video HERE.

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!
