This layout today is by Miae -- and just like Miae it's UBER fab!
Miae says : You know how kids love bubbles...something so simple yet endlessly
entertaining, well I wanted to capture that sense of magic of seeing
bubbles floating in the air. I used the Layered Circles and Layered
Butterflies to help me along!
Using gel medium, I covered the circles in
tissue paper, wrinkles and all, then added a little paint.
is covered with Deco Art Snow Tex and painted over with watercolors.
Welcome to my stop today on the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Hop!
Bethney has gathered all the beautiful talented Ribbonistas together to celebrate a brand new site launch! May Arts has been working so uber hard on a brand new more interactive site and you won't believe how insanely awesome the redo is!! PLUS there's a GIANT giveaway of $1000 + -- all from your favorite companies!
And now.. I Get to share!! Today I'm sharing with you a 12x12 layout. When Bethney mentioned Ribbon Cutting Ceremony I immediately thought of big red bows being cut right in half, trimmed edges and straight up strips of ribbon. So I set out to commemorate our first home as a family with these things in mind. Needless to say the work took me in a slightly different direction, but never the less RED and RIBBON are still recognizable!
I clipped and layered my ribbons, along with 7 Dots Studio (Domestic Goddess paper and alphas,) Viva Las VegaStamps! stamps (Star, Grid Background, Striped Border Arrow, Coffee Ring,) Gauche Alchemy (Washi Tape,) UmWowStudio (Layered confetti chip, Black and Blue Flair, Chevron Lines Mask,) Pink Paislee (Luxe Alphas,) Prima (flower and leaf,) Tattered Angels (Charcoal Chalkboard,) My Mind's Eye (Epoxy brads,) Archival Ink by ranger in black, Stazon ink in red, a black pen.
Leave your glorious comments everywhere for this INSANE prize!!
Today Jess has got a stunner for us in 12x12 format!!
Jess says "I begged Ms. DeeDee to make a set of bee flair just for this layout. I took this photo and all I could picture for the page was honeybees, wildflowers, and whispy stuff! Of course the flair came out awesome and I was able to put my page plan into motion.
I also used the hexagon chipboard background with some random layered hexagons to echo the bee theme on here. Fittingly, the paper is old school Pink Paislee: Queen Bee. The colors of the paper and natural kraft elements and twine all added to the "fresh meadow" look I was going for.
This layout also needed a nice smattering of circle confetti. Everything looks better with confetti!"
Ok.. I know I've been talking about them for MONTHS...
.. but I really wanted to have the best product of my ability ready for release! And I feel like we are THERE! We've tested and poked and prodded and sampled and used and here's what we've got for you!!!

It's Creative Team Wednesday and I've got Kylie stopping by today with her totally knockout style!
Kylie says "UmWowStudio chipboard lends itself so well to Fall pictures and I have a stack of family pics from last year that I need to scrap. I wanted to use my embellishments to highlight my sister's relationship with her son and I think the Make-a-Wish flair and the combination of the Heart Hands and layered chip do this wonderfully. I love using embellishments to tell a story.
Maya Rd kraft envelope, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers, gloosy accents, Bazzil cardstock, American Crafts and Kaisercraft papers."
I don't think I can say enough how proud I am of the creative team --- each and every week I'm so pumped to share their work, and it's all SO DIFFERENT! Kylie's style has always been so graphically stunning. I'm honored to share her work using our chipboard :) Leave her some love!!
