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!
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!

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers 0
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.

Heart Throb Shaker Cards! 0
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards using one of my favorite paper pads EVER, Heart Throb. The colors are so soft, so pretty!
First I used one of the Heart Throb patterns beneath a Waves Foam Front. I simply cut the patterned paper to just slightly smaller than my card front (which is included with the Foam Front Shaker kit). I filled the openings with Heart Throb toppings then adhered the acetate and die-cut cardstock cover.
I tied a bit of gold cord then stamped a die-cut tag and adhered it beneath the bow. I find it’s much easier to simply slip tags beneath bows, rather than tie them within. In doing so, the tag is secured in place without moving around or loosening the cord. (Stamps and tag die by Paper Smooches.)
My second card uses more pretty Heart Throb paper as well as the heart, hello and love dies, all included within the Heart Throb kit.
Before adhering the hello and love words, I die-cut three of each and layered together to create thicker elements. I adhered a thin scrap of gray floral paper along the left side (much too pretty to toss), and left a bit of the white card base to show. Once everything was assembled, I adhered a few tiny floral Heart Throb toppings.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
Multiple Shakers - One Layout! 0
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

Different Ways to Use Toppings! 0
Laurie Schmidlin here and I've got a couple of cards featuring different ways to use Queen & Co's Toppings!
One of my favorite things when creating, is to add special little details. They just seem to give cards that little something extra! Queen & Co's Toppings and smaller flowers are the perfect embellishments for this!
For my first card, I created a heart shaker using items from the Heart Throb Kit. I filled the heart with blue and green Tiny Bubbles (from the Tiny Bubbles Toppings Set). The patterned paper on the heart shaker is from the Simple Stripes 6 x 6 Paper Pad. For embellishment, I adhered little blue stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings Set.
For my next card, I used some Sunflowers and Posies to add color embellishments to my jungle themed card. I started by die cutting the Foam Front Die - Window (one of my favorite card front dies) and added it to a piece of patterned paper from the Pretty Presents 6 x 6 Paper Pad. I tucked in stamped and die cut images and then added a few yellow posies (from the Baby Bling Book -Posies) and Orange Sunflowers.
Thanks so much for joining me here today!
Red, White and Blue! 1
Are you getting ready for your weekend plans? Fireworks? BBQ? Or just a relaxing weekend in your craft space creating fun cards! How about we share a little inspiration with you today. This one looks so elegant, yet can be completed rather quickly.
You too could create a card similar to this one by Ginger. You could start with our Stars Shaker Card Kit. Line the first layout with various washi tapes and then apply the star cut paper on top.
Wrap twine around the top attaching your sentiment then a few of our fun Iridescent Bubbles.
Wanna try this one?? Again, layer washi tape across the base of your card. Apply a larger object in the center of your card. Ginger used our Pop Up Stars. She filled the star with clear and white toppings and added a few pieces of bling!
We hope you have a fabulous weekend with family, friends and full of fireworks. (Maybe a little time to craft.)
