Happy July! I worked my second shift at Target yesterday. I am enjoying this job. It's fun and so different than working at Michael's. It nice to work as a team and have a team to eagerly help you out if you have a question or need some assistance. I picked up on things quickly and about halfway through my shift yesterday everything really fell into place and I didn't realize it until I was lost in thought this morning. I am going to have a great time working there!
I have several scrappy things to share, but I will limit it today to just 2 of them. I was recently asked to be a DT member for The Scrappy Shack, an etsy site that specializes in creating wonderful die cuts. They are so fun to work with and the quality is great! I am going to have a new obsession I tell ya!
I decided to combine the use of some die cuts with the beautiful color challenge this week over at SPCC. When I first saw the color challenge I was at a loss as to how I would pull this one off, but once I started pulling paper, it came together quickly. I really, really like the fresh citrusy feel of this color combo and would have never thought to do this on my own. The black Scrappy Shack die cut frames were the perfect accent to the airy colors. I liked the color combo so much that I also created a card using the same colors. I just added some more black to give it a more elegant feel.
here is the color combo:
for the Gotcha! layout I cut one of the die cut flourishes and used it as an accent to add some movement and grounding to the page. I like how simple this layout is, but the frame just gave it that extra punch to pull it all together (forgive the glare on the photos).
For the Happy Birthday card I also used a flourish die cut. I applied black Stickles on it to glam it up a bit. Once again, the color combo is fresh and playful, but can be used in a more elegant manner as well.
