Ashley Calder's Challenge on Scrap Your Scraps August 2014

Hello Everyone

These two layouts are a challenge from Ashley Calder.  She was kind enough to send these goodies from her Etsy Shop (Ashley Calder and the Things That Shine) and asked if I would like to create some layouts using some of her products with inspiration from Pinterest. There were lots of inspirations from Ashley's Boards on Pinterest.  This is one PIN that inspired from one of Ashley's boards for my pocket page layout and Here is another PIN from her boards that inspired the first layout here. 

These are all the wonderful goodies I received from Ashley Calder.  

As it seems lately with me I started my layout with some water colouring.  Just a bit of Gesso as the base so that my water colouring did not go though the paper and then some pink washed watercolours in a few different shades.

Some pretty pink sequins from my embellishment goodies from Ashley sprinkled around the top left corner and bottom right area.

I used three bright pink doilies in the background to ground my photos.  I also used this pretty flowered envelope to stick in the larger kraft tag.  I used some of the twine that had held the blue tulle   together from my kit to loop through the top of the tag.  

I die cut the word YOU and then heat set the neon pink super fine glitter from my kit. 

I also die cut the circle LOVE die and used the centre of one of the extra doilies as the background for it. I used the light pink crinkled streamer on the bottom of my photos.

Here is the final look at the finished layout.

Here is a second layout I created with most of the left over embellishments that I received from Ashley.  It's a pocket style layout.

I stapled three of these adorable tags from Ashley onto a 3x4 water coloured card and stamped on them using some black ink.

Lots of pretty shades of pink sequins from Ashley.  Again I just spread them all around this pink water coloured 3x4 card.

This 3x4 card is from a strip that my younger daughter had water coloured and given me to use in a layout.  The floss that I used are both from Ashley.  I loved the colours of both.  So pretty.

This 3x4 blue water coloured 3x4 card was also stitched on using more of the blue floss from Ashley. 

Ashley also sent me some pretty shades of green sequins that I used on this 3x4 card as well.

Just a little more bling with the sequins for my title 4x6 card.

This is the finished layout.  
I want to thank Ashley Calder for suppling these amazing and fun embellishments for me to create with.  I loved playing around with all the goodies.  You can visit Ashley's Etsy Shop (Things That Shine) and purchase some absolutely awesome embellishments to use on your next project.

thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!
