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!
How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers 0

Hi Queen and Co fans! 
Rebecca here with a couple of new shaker cards made with the Foam and Acetate refill sheets. There are a couple of extra steps that you need to take if you are making a shaker from the sheets versus from a Queen and Co Shaker Card Kit.
For example, you have to die cut the foam yourself. Any of the Queen and Co Foam Front Dies perfectly create card sized shakers.
You will also need to cut your own card base and provide your own envelope.
But these extra steps only take a few minutes and, with the refill sheets, you are able to create any shaker that you have the die to create.
Check out this quick video where I show all the steps to create a shaker card using a Foam Front Die and the refill sheets.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

ROYGBIV = Happy people!

ROYGBIV = Happy people! 1

Stacy Cohen here,
If you’ve seen my craft projects over the years, you know that I love to use rainbow colors.  There’s something about the good ol’ ROYGBIV that makes me so happy!   Here are a couple of rainbow cards I made using Queen & Co. products.
 
First up is a card featuring a heart with a cascade of rainbow buttons.   I first cut out a heart from white cardstock and used that as my base for adhering the buttons in a rainbow-colored pattern.  I filled in the tiny empty spots with color-coordinated Petite Posies.  Once the heart was filled in, I adhered it to my card front.
 
 
It might be hard to see, but I die-cut a “celebrate” sentiment and adhered it to the bottom right corner of the card.  I wanted to keep it subtle so as not to distract from the rainbow.
 
 
The second card is fairly clean and simple.  I used one of the butterfly dies from the Shaped Shaker Butterfly kit to cut butterflies from the Delightful Dots rainbow pad.
 
I adhered them to my card in a column in rainbow order.
 
 
I finished off the card by adding a Pom Flower to the center of each butterfly.
 
 
Hope your day is full of rainbows and unicorns and all that good stuff!

Fun in the Sun Cards!

Fun in the Sun Cards! 0

Hey everyone!
It's Greta with you today. We are well into summer here so I thought I would put together one of my favorite summer color combos for my cards. For my first card, I featured one of summers favorite sweet treats, ice cream cones.
I used the ice cream cone die cut to make a triple dip, set on a white background. To dress it up, I added epoxy dots and twine. 
 
For this second card, I used the same color combo to create a serene beach scene. 



By layering kraft cardstock for sand, and two different colors of blue for water and sky, the background is complete.


I used the umbrella shaker and die cut in orange and yellow, to make my beach umbrella, embellished with a Pom flower. A sun die cut with bling and a stamped sentiment finishes off this fun beach card!

Supplies Used:  Shaped Shaker Spring, Sprinkles Toppings, Orange Pom Pom Flower, Yellow Posies
 
Happy summer and Thanks for stopping by!

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!
