Guest designer work for the Scrap City

I was chosen to be one of two guest designers for April at the Scrap City; along with my pal Becca!
I was given this yummy kit from Me & My Big Ideas to work with. It was full of yummy papers and lots of glittery embellishments...totally fun to work with.
For the first card I covered a piece of the chipboard with blue glitter. I covered a white card base with the blue solid paper first. I then trimmed the pattern paper with scalloped scissors and adhered it to the cardstock. I trimmed a single strip of the same pattern paper and placed it below the scallop. I used some letter stickers to spell out "hello". Lots of ink along the edges and we're done.
For this one I covered a white card base with the solid blue paper first. I then trimmed the blue pattern paper to fit just inside that. I placed a single strip of the coordinating pattern paper across the front...putting a few rhinestones, the title rubon, and the cute embellishment in place to finish the card. (oh, don't forget the inking)

For this card I adhered the red pattern paper to a white card base. I then rounded the right two corners. I cut two strips of the coordinating pattern paper and placed the embellishment in the place where the papers crossed.

I used the red pattern paper as the base for my layout. I cut some stars from the coordinating pattern paper and then some strips. I created the journaling block from a piece of the green pattern paper, adding a small star that has been edged with glitter. I added a few ghost stars, a cute sticker from my stash, and stamped these wonderful stitch lines from my pal Sheila's Tricia leaves me in stitches set.

This final layout is version two....I had created one and something was not quite I took it apart and figured it out....yeah! This layout uses the green paper as the base...lots of doodling around the outside of the page. I used the letter stickers from the kit to spell out my title and outlined each letter to make them stand out more. I covered one of the the chipboard flourishes with pieces of the leftover pattern paper from the cards and other layout. I added a layered flower and the cute "joy" embellishment to the bottom.
