Saturdays With LeAnn

So Sweet


Another fabulous weekend is here!  Once again, thank you my sweet friends for sharing a part of it with me. Today I believe you will be inspired by the wonderful and talented designers I am featuring. I hope you will take some time to sit back and relax and enjoy the inspiration so you can begin to create your own outstanding projects!

Embrace Life by Gina Lideros

This fun layout started out with using paper from the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paislee.  Cutting out some birds from different patterned papers gives balance to the layout.  Have you had an opportunity to play around with watercolors?  This creative background is one that you can experiment with using watercolors and die cuts. If you have not used a watercolor technique before, take the opportunity to give it a try. You will love the beautiful look of watercolor on your projects and will be so impressed by how artistic you will be.  I am sure this will not be the last time you work with watercolors!

Embrace Life

Once the background is dry, you can adhere the birds. Then help bring your layout to life by adding your favorite embellishments!  Creating your own style and technique can really show off your talent.  Most important – just have fun doing it!  Be sure to check out other creations from Gina Lideros.  Click here so I can take you over to her blog Canon Creative Girl.  You are sure to be inspired by her talent.

Love & Hugs by Judy Rozema

This is one of those sweet cards that you can make by using some of your scraps.  If you are anything like me, I keep everything!  I have the hardest time throwing away scraps of my beautiful papers.  I do have to say, though, that I do use them – they don’t just get thrown in a drawer or basket. Use some of your great embellishments and add them to your card.  You will end up with a bright, cheerful card ready to give to that special someone!

Love & Hugs

Take a minute or two and visit Joy In A Jar.  You will find Judy’s blog very stimulating and innovative.  You are going to want to jump right in and start creating your own cards.  A big thank you to Judy for her wonderful inspiration.

So Sweet by Debby Hughes

Watercolor can be applied to card making projects in a variety of different ways. Watercolors are transparent which lend them to great use on paper for layering and creating depth in images. Adding watercolor to your projects creates such an impressive look.  What a great way to boost your creativity level!

Pick a fun sentiment to add to your design, add a few sequins, and you have the perfect card for summer.  Debby Hughes is a fabulously talented lady with so many inspirational projects. If you would like to add watercolor to your next project, I highly recommend you to stop by her blog Lime Doodle Design.  I promise you will be so happy you took the time to do so.  Click here and I will take you over to find the products you need to create this fantastic card.

With that said, it is time to start thinking about your July decorations.  These fun, patriotic fireworks are perfect to gather together for a fun bowl filler.
