Adornit Guest Designer Days 1-5 and a Giveaway!

This week I am the featured guest designer at Adornit!
Each day I will be adding a new project to this post so be sure to check back!
I will be sharing projects all week both here and on their blog! I love their paper crafting collections and am thrilled to be sharing what I created!  They supplied me with two new collections: Rhapsody Bop and You & Me.

Day One:
Today I have a layout using Rhapsody Bop:
The colors of Rhapsody Bop are a beautiful mix of vibrant and soft - a combination that comes together perfectly for little girl layouts!  I absolutely loved this floral patterned paper and knew I wanted to use it in a big way so I made it the base of my layout.  Because of the brightness of that paper I went much more subtle for the center using a light polka dot pattern to anchor my black and white pictures.  I cut out and stitched on a large white heart to surround the pictures.  Embellishing was made easy by using coordinating die cuts and clear stickers

Day Two:
Since I did one vibrant project already with Rhapsody Bop I thought it would be nice to do one with the softer colors. 
 The border printed on this patterned paper is beautiful and makes for an easy start to the layout.  I added a border sticker above it and then built the heart of my layout above it.  I opted for just one picture because I had already used up so much space. I built clusters of embellishments around the picture as well as adding an area for journaling.

Day Three:
This card just kind of fell into my lap as I was playing with the scraps of You & Me!  You & Me is another new collection from Adornit.  I laid the marquee die cut on top of one of the pocket page elements that I had cut out and it fit on there so perfectly, I knew i had to use it!  Adding it to a base and embellishing with fussy cut flowers made for a quick but striking card.

As I mentioned with my layout, I really loved that floral patterned paper from Rhapsody Bop so I wanted to use it again on a card.  As I was contemplating what I wanted to do I noticed that one of the clear stickers looked like it would fit on a wood piece.  As you can see it wasn't 100% exact but close enough that it adds some thing unique to the wood and makes a great focal point on the card.

Day Four:
I love to make Altered Embroidery Hoops and hang them around the house.  Mine always include pictures and this was no different.  I haven't made one yet of my hubby and I so I made use of "You & Me" to create one!  I love the look of the clear stickers layered onto the print background so you can see both elements.  I made use of stickers, die cuts, and wood also on this!

Today is my last day guest designing at Adornit and I have one last layout to share that uses the You & Me collection.
I didn't have very many pictures of me and my hubby from recent days so this was a perfect opportunity to do a quick little photo shoot so I could create a pretty layout about our 14th year of marriage. For this layout I really focused my embellishing on the wood pieces.  For the title pieces, I painted them half black and left them half natural.  I had recently seen Stephanie Buice  do something similar on chipboard and thought it would work neat on wood too!  For the rest of my wood I colored the pieces and then decorated them with a fine tip black marker. I love how wood gives you some freedom to play with a variety of mediums to decorate!  The clear stickers on this patterned paper really pop too!

I don't know if I can comment again - but I love the color of Day two's page. It's kind of a blue/violet and it is so pretty. The layout is beautiful. Not overly-fussy.
thanks for sharing another great page.
